    Photos illustrating compression issues with jackets & car seats?

    Does anyone know if there are any photos or YouTube videos illustrating how compression affects the fit of a harness when a winter coat is worn in the car seat? I thought I'd seen something before, but Google is coming up with nothing. My EC is discussing winter coats for babies right now and I'd love some links to help illustrate my point.

    TIA!

    Re: Photos illustrating compression issues with jackets & car seats?

    I have a couple of pics of my ds in an infant seat with a sherpa one peice suit, and then without. But, the suit itself wasn't that fluffy, if you know what I mean.





    You can see how nice and tight the straps look.

    But then...









    and everyone got a kick out of the crying with the suit on.... like he knew he wasn't safe enough.

    I know someone has done this with the bundleme, too. And with one of those really puffy coats.

    I found the BundleMe one on BabyCenter after a lot of searching. Thank you for your photos! Do you mind if I link to this thread so that others can come here and see them?

    Not at all, as long as it is just the link to the thread
