Carseat Ponchos will keep your little ones warm while keeping those straps and buckles snug as they should be. The back of the poncho is lifted over the back of the carseat so there is ZERO extra padding between your child and the seat but also keeps them snuggly and warm.
Carseat ponchos include a layer of minky and a layer of anti-pill fleece. Very soft and cuddly!
Generally you should purchase a size "up-sized" from the size your child currently wears.
Measurements are as follows:
Size Shoulder to Wrist Neck to Waist
6m 9.5" 9.75"
1 12" 11"
2 14.75" 11.75"
3 17" 13.5"
4 17.25" 14.5"
Transport Canada has warned parents that using bulky snowsuits in a car seat can pose a serious safety hazard for a child in the event of a crash. Thick layers of the snowsuit can be compressed from the force of a crash resulting in slack of the harness that can cause them to be ejected from the car seat.
A carseat poncho is a PERFECT solution for this problem!!! The poncho includes a hood and a convenient snap closure front. It also has snapped "sleeves" for when in use outside the carseat. Designed to keep your child both toasty AND secure, the car seat poncho is a must-have addition to any Canadian child’s wardrobe!
The poncho is easy to use.
• Simply slip it onto your child before leaving the house.
• As you place your child into the car seat, lift the back of the poncho so it’s not behind him. (This will ensure you have access to the harness system).
• Unsnap the poncho to expose the harness. Buckle your child into the harness and tighten it as usual.
• Resnap or leave open but attached at the neck to allow child easier use of hands, and you’re ready to go!

Cozy and comfy for my little granddaughter in a cold car. She's a happy girl in her poncho! She loves how soft it is.
Works just as expected & very convenient to use. Top quality material & workmanship .
Just received this, and even though it's almost summer and 26C° outside, I am sitting in our cool basement with this poncho over my shoulders to try to get a feel of how warm it'll be and I'm nice and cozy. But I get the feeling that this isn't nearly thick enough for the -25+C° weather. I guess it would do for the short walk from the house to the car (hoping we dont have to park the car too far during snow clearing days) as long as I dress my LO in warm enough clothing underneath. But I'd have to dress him warmer than I would if he were using a snow suit. And for longer car rides where he'd eventually remove his poncho, I'd say he might still feel too warm in whatever clothing he has on underneath his straps.
I purchased this in size 3 for my (would be) almost 2 year old. I also purchased the baby parka brand poncho for my 4 year old thinking she'd be too big for this one, and that's how I got my opinion. The baby parka material feels as thick as a snow suit whereas this one just seems like a thick blanket for indoor use.
Despite that, it looks very functional and easy to use and I can't wait to use it. I just wished it were maybe twice as thick, and like the other reviewers mentioned, it'd be nicer if it were a bit longer in the front. Though im not going to be too sad about that seeing as it might just drag on dirty slush instead.
It's great, we love it! And I love the pattern. You picked a good one :)
My daughter looks like a little woodland red riding hood! I bought the size for a two year old so my 9 month old would be covered completely and I know she wouldn’t outgrow it during the lengthy AB winter. It’s so soft and warm.... I almost wish there was a grownup one so we could be matchy. It also works in our ergo carrier :)
