a friend of mine who recently had a baby got a cover like this online. she got hers on babysteals for a discount, but when i went looking, i found that they retail for $45-$90! there's NO way i'd ever pay that much for a car seat cover! so, i decided to make my own. i have made them several different ways. some have flaps, some don't. some have velcro, some have snaps. just depends on what you like. these covers will keep germs away from your precious little one since people won't be able to touch baby. they will also keep baby warm through the cold months. no more throwing a blanket over your baby!
