- Dress your baby or young child in snug layers, like onsies and leggings. Add long pants, a long sleeved shirt, a hat and shoes and socks. You can even include a jacket.
- For babies, use covers specifically for car seats that are designed to give warmth. These covers should be approved by the car-seat manufacturer for your specific car seat.
- For older babies, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners, after securing them in the car seat, turn their coat around and put it on backwards (arms through the armholes) so the coat is on top of the harness, or use a blanket in the car.
