As a CPST I am thrilled to find products that are being made to fit the guidelines set by car seat manufacturers & keep kids safe. Imagine my delight when I came across The Cozywoggle coat! Let’s back up for a minute. In case you are confused as to why a child can’t just wear a regular coat in a car seat please read this post I did last year on winter car seat safety. There’s a video in it that demonstrates how unsafe a regular winter coat can be to a child in a car seat.
Back to the Cozywoggle. So this coat is amazing! As illustrated in photos my fierce little demonstrator was a happy participant. The coat is worn like a regular coat. It’s a very nice, quality coat. It has a regular zipper in the front, but here’s the surprise, it has two zippers along each side. When these zippers are unzipped they make it possible for the coat to be worn without interfering with the harness; it looks like a poncho when unzipped. So you’re child can wear it like a regular, warm winter coat when not in the car, and then like magic it transforms. It has even been crash tested! BAM! Safety at it’s finest! The coat comes in sizes from 12months-child size 6. We have ordered all 4 colors in sizes 12mo-3T, and they should be in store tomorrow!
Here are some of the pics from my product testing and below them is a video from The Cozywoggle website.
