No more worries about safety when buckling your baby over bulky coats or clothing with our Traveling Poncho! It simply goes on your child over the buckles and seatbelts. It's easy: take your child out into the car wearing the poncho, sit them in the car seat, flip the back part of poncho over the top of car seat, hold the front up while you buckle your child, and place the poncho over buckled seatbelts.

The Traveling Poncho slips on over your child’s head, allows for extra room for a hat if needed, rest of poncho spreads over your child’s body for full coverage and warmth. The poncho is made of super warm soft fleece, it’s rectangular and long enough to provide warmth. Kids have the freedom to move their arms or keep them under the blanket for warmth

This unique reversible fleece poncho was designed and created with one thing in mind: SAFETY. You can put the poncho on your child to walk from home to car, then lift the poncho front, buckle up your child, and put the poncho back down over your child. That’s it! Hassle Free Safety, Comfort and Warmth. The poncho can be placed over the seat in the back so as not to create excessive bulkage behind your child’s head when in the car or stroller. The front is long enough for coverage and can be tucked in around the sides. Freedom of arm movement is paramount as most kids don’t like to have their arms constrained. The hood can be on or off and has enough room for an extra hat if needed. The adorable design options, both sides, are a major bonus!
DID YOU KNOW? There is a 75 to 95% misuse rate with clothing and car seats. It’s just not safe to buckle over the coat, period. When we know better, we do better. This is why we designed these, and they are here to put your mind at ease.

“It’s a mistake any parent can easily make in winter: putting your child in a car seat bundled up in a winter coat. And it could be deadly.”
“As a general rule, winter coats should not be worn underneath a car seat harness because that can leave the harness too loose to be effective in a crash.”
“Most winter coats and snowsuits add about 4 inches of bulk to the car seat harness straps.”
“What difference does 4 inches make? The average coat adds 4 inches of slack into the child’s harness straps…that’s like wearing 38 inch waist pants when you are a 34!”
“There is an up to 95% misuse rate with clothing and car seats.”
