I would love if someone pointed me in the direction of a camo car seat cover! Not army camo though. I checked etsy. I kinda like some things but I'm not sure. Does anyone here make them?

You cannot use carseat covers that go between the baby and the carseat (only the bunting type things

more accurately..



they are not recommended... they make the carseat not safe mama! I wish I'd known that when my LO was an infant. they're cute... but not worth it if it makes seat unsafe

Walmart sells Mossy Oak car seats on their website. I think they're like $40.

If you're looking for something to keep baby warm, look into making or buying a carseat poncho:

Not a poncho. I was looking for a cover that goes over the original material hence changing the pattern

yup! It voids the warrenty or something, so IF the seat is in an accident, it won't be covered by insurance, including any injuries sustained....

You canot change or cover the material that the carseat came with. It is entirely unsafe

TRUE! Because ANYTHING aftermarket, including those belt covers, were not tested in the factory... SO! To be safe, anything that did not come with the car seat from the manufacturer, is not "allowed". But the canopy covers like the PP pictured, or the pochos that I pictured are safe because they do not interfere with the belts or functionality of the seat itself.



But then again, a lot of people will say NOTHING should be put on the seat, or around the seat... I had my seat checked at the DMV by an officer, and I have one of those mirrors on the back of the seat so I can see DD because she is ERF, and he said that may void the seat warranty. They don't recommend anything to be near the seat... He said use it at your own risk......
