7AM Enfant Car Seat Cocoons
The 7AM Enfant Car Seat Cocoon is a winter staple. It fits all infant car seats seamlessly because of the elastic, according to 7AM! It is resistant to both wind and rain, and it’s ultra-lightweight to keep your little one comfy. Parents do have to remove the car seat canopy in order to put on the cocoon but other than that it is convenient as can be.
It is important to note that although it's hugely popular, the Car Seat Cocoon does not have a back, and is specifically designed for car seat usage. The only stroller that it works with is the Doona. Because it doesn’t have a back, it’s not as extremely warm as other options, however it is still quite cozy, and people here in the tristate are very happy with it. Some find that their baby isn't so hot and stuffy as much as in the pod or igloo, just comfortably warm. We love that the cocoon is so easy to take off the car seat. 7AM Enfant car seat cocoons are flying off the shelves again this year, so if you're planning on ordering one, now is the time.
Starting at $70 the 7AM Enfant Car Seat Cocoons go up to $95. This is a great option for parents who need a car seat footmuff for long chilly rides. The cocoon is only compatible with the Doona, and not with any other strollers, but as we mentioned, you can use it with any car seat.
