I Get Your Car Seat Struggle
I am a mom of three who felt too tired to wrestle my kids coats off in the car seat One. More. Time.
I don’t like ponchos – I don’t want to drag blankets through slush – I don’t want my kids to be cold.
One day, feeling totally defeated by the No Coat Thing, I thought if the zipper wasn’t in the middle… Enter instant excitement!! I applied for a patent and did the next logical thing, I spoke with every coat manufacturer imaginable. I thought they would jump on the idea but they didn’t believe that coats and car seats had anything to do with one another. They weren’t in the trenches though – I was – and I knew other parents were too.
I would see kids wrapped in a blankets dragging through slush with their totally defeated looking mom and know I had to get this simple solution out there! One day I thought let me try Facebook to talk directly to moms and here we are!
The coats are crash tested – Fun Fact: They passed the first time around! I They are evaluated by CPSTs, first responders, and EMTs too but my biggest experts are the kids who love not having coats forced off and on them all the time and parents who love having one less Thing to worry about!
Its been pretty amazing!
My 3 kids, 2 cats, dog and I live in New Hampshire where winter is long and cold and people are super friendly. I’m also a mental health counselor – I run a private practice with my dear friend where I treat adults with PTSD. I love escape rooms, Netflix binge watching, theater, long books, and card games.
In my spare time I makes coats.
