You're either doing it right, or wrong. While one option is to start your baby in a capsule and progress to a forward-facing seat then a booster seat, some may prefer to use a convertible car seat which can change modes to allow for longer periods of use. this is perfect and the fact that is NOT technical actually makes this doable for me. I've already learned that there will be naysayers and mommy cops with something to say no matter what you do - You know your babies and whats best for them!

It makes so much sense! http://www.domesticacademic.com/2012/06/car-seat-swaddle.html#. So basically just cut out the back. Others adjust at the crotch too. No car seat should be altered in any way -- ie by placing items that did not come with it in it. That way no extra fabric is behind baby's back. And for older babies, this thin material seems more safe than a bulky coat, which my car seat manual said is a no-no. If someone puts extra padding that makes the baby sit funny which alters the way the straps buckle the baby in, this is likely a problem and a safety risk. If you only have one infant to bundle, I'm sure you can accomplish this while baby sleeps.

\n<\/p><\/div>"}. GENIUS! My baby will thank you later :), Thanks, Kelly!Last night I made a car seat blankie for my grandbaby. Scissors. This project took me a little more than one nap time, but I was making two of them. Wonderful idea! Next, measure 13 inches down at a 45° angle from the first pin, mark the spot, and repeat to mark another 45° angle. Love it. And I love it! but I love this 'technical' pattern!! I was DONE DONE DONE having kids but just found out baby #6 is on the way and will be my first "dead of winter" baby. I wish I would have found it for my first child because we bought a lot of gender neutral stuff so it would be usable for future siblings. Step 6: Iron the rectangular piece After sewing the rectangular piece of fabric, you have to iron the seam open. Cut along the marks and sew the 2 hexagons together. I have Allstate. I've made one of these before, but the addition of the hood is new to me. Kelly I really don't think the blanket you have made, especially the way you have buckled it into the seat, would create a significant air space between the baby and the seat. PS about the safety part - just cut out an entire rectangle instead of just the carseat strap slits. They may also be more cost-effective depending on what model you choose. This blanket looks pretty safe from that because the baby could kick out of it if she got too hot. For most baby car seats, you’ll need the same supplies to get started: Baby wipes and a soft towel for removing debris. ;), Hey Kelly if you are in Australia and want to make a pastel coloured one I'll buy it from you. Cut the excess thread when you reach the end. Items like LulaClips pin to the car seat straps to hold them out of the way while loading or unloading a child from the car seat. I like the idea. Had to return it (thank you, Amazon). Being new to sewing, I grabbed whatever batting I found. Thank you so much for your blog (new follower) and this tutorial!!! This service may not be available everywhere in the world, but always make sure you check with your local transportation office if they have trained experts to inspect your child’s car seat. Do not sew over them or you may damage your sewing machine! I just wanted to say that the car seat idea is fabulous....the maple syrup on the binky is a big NO NO.

Check out the NUNA Pipa and the NUNA Pipa Lite as well as the brand’s popular convertible car seat, the Rava. I'm in Ontario. I will definitely be making a couple of these this summer since MY twins are both having babies this summer!!

It slips on and off like a shower curtain. Make sure to pre-wash the fabric to ensure that it won’t shrink after you make the car seat cover. The cover is compact so you can easily fit it in. Cut along the marks and sew the 2 hexagons together. I love the "technical" part .. i do a lot of "eyeballing" and "guess-ta-mating" for cooking and so many other things that when i DO follow recipes or directions i get overwhelmed and totally botch it! Thanks so much for the post!! What an easy tutorial, and I absolutely LOVE the hood too! I am so tired of fighting with my squirmy 6mo to get her into those snowsuits or buntings or heavy coats and then fighting with her again to get her buckled in with those bulky things in the way. As a neonatal nurse......NO NO NO NO TO MAPLE SYRUP! as for the person who was wanting one for their toddler, try using fleece---it comes in a bigger width and you really don't even have to sew it, also, I was thinking for those kids that like to kick and such, you could add a button or a tie so it doesn't come undone. That made having a car seat cover CRUCIAL! i know how to work a sewing machine, and i have a decent eye for detail, but some of that sewing vocabulary just sends me running the other way!going to get fabric soon! So clever! You have to be careful trusting second hand info especially with medical issues and the emotion involved with a dead baby. Thanks! Just put a blanket on them. Take your time when sewing 2 pieces of stretch fabric together! Sew cute! I wouldn't be concerned at all about putting my baby in this. ;) Those twins are adorable! But it will definately work. I didn't like the buntings for that reason. And once the car journey is over, make sure to remove your baby from the car seat or capsule, even if it means waking them. When you buy your car seat, ask the retail staff to demonstrate how to strap your baby into it. Obviously someone missed an illness, there is one that can cause very high temperatures without an infection. Repeat to make a second hexagon in the same dimensions as the first. I'm sorry but I have to comment. Thanks for making me famous :). Installing a child car seat or booster seat. Even with several blankets, the baby shouldn't have reached such a high temp. Your tutorial was so wonderfully easy to follow! and it turned out amazingly well. do you have an esty shop? Your twins are adorable by the way :), We have some cute ones ready made come over and check out our facebook page.www.facebook.com/peekaboocovers. Then, cut out 2 fabric strips, stack them, and sew along the angled ends. All you have to do is put your babies coat on backwards while your carrying them to your car.

Thank you for this.. it was genius! Completely Brilliant! There's a 3 inch wide piece of blanket that lies down the center of the babies back, but otherwise the slits are totally open and not interfering with the straps. Tips for proper installation. Using after market product inside your seat is not recommended by the manufacturer. We've had a pretty mild winter and since we are approaching spring, I think I will make it without the batting for a thinner blanket.
