Discovery 5 3 little bears car seat
You should never put your baby in a car seat in their snowsuit. It counts as extra padding, and voids all the crash testing done with your car seat. It is NOT safe!
You should instead put your child in the seat with just normal clothing, tighten until it's very snug. You should not be able to pinch your strap at all, then put a blanket on top of the straps.
There should be a tension adjustment. Read your user's manual. If you don't have one, call the manufacturer and they can email you a virtual copy.
If the tension is let all the way out, your child has probably outgrown the seat. Check the manual for height and weight limits. My boys grew out of their infant seats at 4 and 5 months old! It was an older Discovery model, but I suspect the height limit is still a measly 26 inches, instead of 29 inches like most seats. They weren't even CLOSE to the weight limit, but had to move to a convertible seat anyway.
I need a new seat for the baby who will arrive in a few months, and I will be paying more $$$ for one that has a higher height limit.
