Safety features of the Buckle Me Coat

The Buckle Me Baby Coat is not only a safer alternative, it’s also comfy, cozy and warm - making for an overall better in-the-car situation for parent and child alike. 

Our safety features are what make the product really special. Car seat experts don’t ever recommend the use of bulky winter coats. Why? Because puffy winter coats make your child fidget and feel uncomfortable, which can lead to driver distraction. The Buckle Me Baby Coat isn’t bulky, creating hassle-free safety for you and your child. The Buckle Me Baby Coat is comfortable for your child and eliminates the fidgetiness that comes with heavy coat-wearing. Plus, the Buckle Me Baby Coat is thinner in the back than it is in the front, opening in such a way that it allows the car seat’s harness to go directly over your child’s chest and shoulders creating a comfy situation that is both safer and snuggly. Perhaps the most important safety feature is that the Buckle Me Baby Coat is crash tested. Also it was designed to be a safer alternative to traditional winter coats.

That means your child is safer in a Buckle Me Baby Coat than they’d be in a regular coat. For many parents and grandparents, that’s enough to want to make the switch. But If that doesn’t move you, take a look at some of our colors and limited edition patterns to see that the Buckle Me Baby Coat is not only a safer alternative, it’s also fashionable, fun and toasty warm!
