FAQ ~ Car Seat Liners, Covers and Hoods

 

1. What is a Car Seat Liner?

A car seat liner is a specially made cover which is placed on top of your exisiting car seat.

The car seat liner does not interfere with the function of your car seat and no adaptions need to be made to accomodate the car seat liner.

The cover is a lovely item and looks very attractive but is an essential and practical item for baby - it provides a layer of comfort for baby against the material of the car seat which can be very uncomfortable if the baby's skin is exposed directly on the car seat especially in hot weather when the baby is perspiring. 

The covers are made from a 100% cotton top layer and backed with a specially designed aerated fabric.

The aerated fabric has small holes which enable good air flow and mean baby will be as comfortable in the car seat. 

The car seat liners are most suited to warmer weather due to the special aerated backing however they can be used all year around.

2. What is a Car Seat Cover ?

A car seat cover is a padded car seat liner with a footmuff attached.

The footmuff can be described best as a fixed blanket or duvet and it may be removed using a zip.

The car seat cover does not interfere with the function of your car seat and no adaptions need to be made to accomodate the car seat liner.

The cover is a lovely item and looks very attractive but is a practical item for baby - it provides a luxurious layer of comfort for baby against the material of the car seat.

The covers are wonderful because you do not need to put lots of extra layers on baby to keep them warm - they are perfect to use for bringing baby home from hospital or to use for apppoinments and errands.

The covers are made from a 100% cotton top layer. 

3. What brands of car seats can you use a car seat liner or cover on?

As a guiding rule the liners and covers are designed to fit all Group 0 car seats.

With so many new brands of car seat being launched all the time it is difficult for us to provide a definitive list of all the brands however if you car seat has a design similar to the following brands the liners and covers will fit:

Maxi Cosi

BeSafe

Britax

Cybex

Baby Zen

If you have a different brand of car seat and are not sure if the liners and covers will fit then please do contact us for more information.

4. Tell me about personalising my car seat cover

We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to personalise your car seat cover with a name.

The personalisation takes place on the car seat footmuff at the top section of the footmuff in a classic style of font. 

This service has an additional charge.

Personalised items cannot be refunded for change of mind as the item has been made specially for you.

Personalised orders take at least 3 weeks as the complete item is made to order for you in Spain - the name simply is not just added to the cover but instead the item is carefully constructed so that the back of the personalisation does not show at the reverse of the footmuff but carefully concealed with the lining of the footmuff. 

5. How Do you fit a car seat liner or cover?

The covers are very easy to fit over your car seat.  The sides of the cover are elasticated and so they fit around the shape of your car seat.

You do not need to adapt or make any modificaions to your car seat to fit the cover

The covers have slots which you either open or cut to size to fit your straps and harness through

6. What is a car seat hood?

A car seat hood is an accessory for your car seat.  Most car seats already come with a black hood as they provide shade and shelter for baby.

The car seat hoods we sell are light in colour so they do not absorb heat, they also look super pretty too!

You can choose to purchase a car seat hood seperately or as part of a set with a car seat liner or cover.   

7What brands of car seats can you use a car seat hood on?

The hood is designed to fit car seats which have a circular shaped handlebar such as a Maxi Cosi.

With so many new brands of car seat being launched all the time it is difficult for us to provide a definitive list of all the brands that are suitable for the hood to fit however if you have a Doona or Slivercross the car seat hood will not fit. 

8. How do you fit a car seat hood?

The hood is easy to fit.

To fit please make sure that the handlebar of your car seat is in the ready to use / carry position

Place each side of bottom of the hood around the end of the handle bar and then using the elasticiated sides you can fit the hood over the handlebar

9. Care Instructions

The products are all machine washable at 30 degrees and they dry naturally very quickly so there is no need to use a tumble drier.

10. Are matching accessories available?

You may choose to purchase a car seat hood and belt covers.

11. Can you make a custom design?
