When I was expecting baby number 5 I knew with a November birthday I would need a great way to keep her warm in her car seat. I of course turned to one of my favorite brands 7 A.M. Enfant to see what they had to offer. With my other kids I used a car seat blanket that went underneath them and then a second piece zipped on top, I have since learned these are not recommended as they add an extra layer between baby and the car seat. 7 A.M. Enfant has the perfect solution the Car-Seat Cocoon. The Cocoon fits on over the top of the infant car seat like a shower cap. Once you put it on you do not remove it, simply unzip to put your child in or take them out. There is an opening so you can see baby and baby gets plenty of air but they are below the wind. When we first brought my daughter home from the hospital you had to be standing over the car seat and looking down to see her, now as she grows you can see her more easily but she is still out of the wind.
As you can see I chose the hot pink color and I love it. People comment all the time on how genius the car seat cover is and I agree. My baby is always warm and cozy and protected from the elements, she is also protected from unwanted touching! Using the 7 A.M. Enfant car-seat cocoon means I don’t have to worry about layering up my daughter too much, I can dress her appropriately and skip jackets that are unsafe in a car seat all while knowing she will be nice and warm!
