The weather is getting cool, so it is time to ditch the coat. Wait, is that right? Ok, you have to wear a coat sometimes in the winter, but in your vehicle is not usually one of those times. If you or your children have to wear a coat though, here are some safer ways to stay warm on the road.

It’s potty learning time here at CSFTL. We have a little handful of kiddos who turned two this past year and new potties and undergarments abound.
One question we see a lot as CSPTs is, “how do I protect my vehicle’s seats when a car seat is installed?” It’s a valid question, especially for expectant parents who wonder what the car seat will do to a vehicle’s interior which was previously untouched by car seats and ground goldfish crackers.
