Question about Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3-in-1 Convertible
I have the Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3 in 1 Convertible Car Seat and I am having a problem trying to figure out how to loosen the harness straps to allow more room now that they are wearing heavy jackets . . . I have tried but to no avail. Please help!
Loosen the harness by lifting up on the metal latch located under the flap on the front of the seat and pulling on the straps. This should loosed the straps for you.

If you check the seat's manual, you'll find that it says somewhere in it that children should never wear bulky/heavy jackets or clothing in the seat.
If you have to loosen the harness for it to fit, the jacket is too bulky to be safe...if you're in an accident, the fluffiness of the coat will compress, causing the straps to be too loose - you child would be thrown forcefully against the loosened straps (danger of internal injuries - much greater risk than in snug straps, which keep them from starting that fast whip forward) or even be ejected from the seat because of this.
The easiest solutions we've found are to either:
*take the coat off when you get to the car and put it back on, backwards, after the harness is buckled
*use blankets (over the harness, again) instead of dealing with coats
or *do a quick search for car seat ponchos - fleece ponchos made for car seat use...they're not hard to make if you'd rather not buy one.
