    Snow pants in boosters?

    Is it safe to wear snow pants in a booster? It’s rare that we are in a situation to even consider it, but on occasion, DH wants to do school drop off via minivan, 10 minutes before they’re allowed to go inside. So they’ll be on the playground.

    Not an expert by any means but...

    We do it regularly. Going skiing all the kids and dH and I too wear snow pants in the car. Bibs or pants. I'd look at the fit though and make sure the belt is still pulling snug (and staying that way). A larger booster rider will have a different fit than say a normal sized 6 yo as the pants will be pressed with the fold of the hip/leg. And of course different types of snow pants will have different filling, and outer stiffness makes a difference too.
