Come visit me over at the Riley Blake Designs blog today. I am sharing my Car Seat Swaddling Blanket Tutorial. It’s a great DIY baby shower gift and super fast and easy to create!
What a great idea! I wish there was something like this when my kids were babies. They both needed swaddling to feel at ease and for a long time too. www.jillienedesigns.blogspot.com
Yeah, car seat swaddling was very comforting to my babies. We loved this blanket.
Hi, I am a child passenger safety technician and I have to say that as cute as this idea is, it is just not safe. You should never put anything between the child and the carseat. And you should never put or use anything on your carseat that did not come with it when you bought it. If you have any specific questions I would be more than happy to answer them. :-)
I completely respect your comment. Putting anything between baby and car seat isn't recommended. This is the reason I did use batting or anything fluffy. Please, parents, be cautious about anything that doesn't come with the car seat. Great reminder, angeleyes! Thanks for your comment.
I have to second angeleyes. This is not safe. Never put anything between your child and the car seat, even a jacket or snow suit. Cover the car seat with a blanket when you go in and out of the car if it is cold. Your local health department is more than happy to educate you on the proper and safe way to install and use your car seat. And please please make sure the straps are tight around the child!
Thank you for your comment. Always remember to be safe and follow car seat instructions and use caution when using anything that doesn't come with the car seat. I did use this blanket and found it super helpful, but agree that the safety rules should always be considered.
