Any suggestions on clothes that are warm enough to keep the munchkin warm, but not so bulky it creates a safety issue in the car seat? Obviously layering. I grew up in a warm weather climate, so dressing for cold weather isn't something we had to do a lot. It really just meant wearing toe socks with our flip flops. 😂

I typically try to use a thin jacket and then put a blanket on top (over the buckle)!

Infant car seat cover should be enough and/or warm blanket

Target has some good warm jackets that aren't too bulky. We also used those car seat covers for infant car seats.

i suggest getting a nice warm blanket which you can always take with you specially when you go out.

I really like layering with fleece onesies, especially the ones with the feet, keeps baby really warm

You can get car seat covers/blankets, they even have the ones that has holes for the seatbelts.

Carters has the best clothes by far or tj max has the most adorable jackets and sweats!

I'm from California but we live in the midwest now and this was a major adjustment for me too. It's tough because what they might need to stay warm outside might be too hot or bulky while you're actually in the car, or yes not safe for the car seat. I started bringing a blanket and tucking it over the car seat so she's got extra warmth without being too bulky for car seat safety, and then we just put the jacket on when we get to where we need to go.

A jacket, hat, mittens and a hood always will keep baby warm and even a blanket

When we travel to NY for the winter-- the best remedy has been layers for our little, with a thin hoodie-- so that 2 long sleeved shirts and a thin hoodie...and of course we would take the coat along with us in the car and his little newbie cap, 1 pair of high top socks, boots, and thick pants

You don't want the little guy/girl to get too  hot and start sweating in the car and then take them out into the cold-- this will only make matters worse. Keep in mind not to blast the heater in the car if the little one is dressed in layers as well.

I like the carseat cover also. At home I put layers on so I can easily adjust to surrounding temp.

I use blankets. So I put him in a light footy onesies then layer a blanket on him so I can take it off easily. My child gets hot quick and when he is hot he is mad as hell. haha Plus blankets are a bonus to have if lil has a blow out.

I also recommend carseat covers. They work great and keep them super cozy.

If your baby is still in an infant car seat, I love the carseat covers. We had a Snuggly one that was fleeced lined and could zip up to keep them warm from weather and away from germs during cold and flu season. It looked so cozy!

Land's End brand - hoodies, fleeces.  Seems to work well.

I usually just keep a small blankie in the car for my son.

Like you said, layer! There are thin down jackets that keep baby very warm as well.  I always make sure his jacket has a hood too, so that I can put the hood up over a hat for extra warmth.

We always took coat off once we got in the carseat, but before we strapped in - when we lived in an area with cold winters. They say it's dangerous to keep outerwear on in carseat. Watch those cheeks - if they are red, baby/child is too hot. You can always pull into a parking lot, stop, and rearrange your child so they are comfortable. Be aware of the air conditioner/heat in car, too. You could feel fine and baby is freezing or too hot!

I always do long sleeve onsies with tights underneath with socks and mittens. I will add a blanket if she needs extra warmth. hope that helps!

Oh and it also doesn't interfere with car seat function because even if it's down it's not that bulky. I get mine at lands end or target.
