An Introduction To Infant Car Seat Covers

Thomas Morva
March 1, 2006

Specially-designed car seat covers provide protection for infants and toddlers. These car seat covers are different from those used for adults and older children as they are front facing allowing the baby to rest in comfort while traveling.

The most important aspect of an infant car seat cover is the security it provides. The best infant car seat covers are those that have five-point strap-on attachments: one for each shoulder, one for each thigh and one between the legs of the infant. Such covers provide maximum protection for the baby while the car is in motion. Another car seat cover is available which has a T-strap; however it is not very secure or comfortable for the movement of the baby.

Car seat covers for infants are made from a very soft material so as not to harm the baby's skin. Some better quality seat covers are water and snow resistant and thermally insulated. Infant car seat covers come in a wide variety of colors and patterns which make them look very attractive. Infant car seat covers are designed in such a way that they can be easily extracted from the seat of the car along with the baby in it. Hence, infant car seat covers can be used in prams and also while rocking babies to sleep.

Earlier infant car seat covers had buckle arrangements at the rear of the seat. However this was cumbersome as they required moving the baby and exerting oneself to strap and detach the cover. Recent car seat covers for infants have their strapping arrangements at the front end.

Most infant car seat covers are available in the range of $30 to $50. Their basic design and structure is the same, but their prints and patterns vary. They have slight modifications to attract customers. Used infant car seat covers are available, but they are not advisable to purchase for both hygienic as well as security reasons.
