Jolly Jumper Soft Straps Carseat Strap Covers Soft Sherpa - Reversible, soft plush strap covers prevent uncomfortable car seat straps from chaffing your baby's skin.Protect your baby's tender cheeks from rough shoulder strap webbing in strollers and car seats, with these easy-to-make covers.

Just cut two 5" (13cm ) squares for a baby under 6 months from quilted fabric, acrylic fleece or Sherpa fabric. For an older child cut a 5" by 8" (13cm by 20 cm) rectangle.

Bind with bias tape, or serge around all edges.

Sew a strip of hook Velcro® down one edge, and loop Velcro® on the opposite edge (and side) of fabric.

Shalan Bate posted: As a certified child restraint safety tech: I highly advise against putting aftermarket covers on your car seat.

1. It could interfere with harness during an accident,
2. it is not even tested with the seat. So no idea how it would work in a collision.

Most seats come with covers, but if you find the harness is bother the neck, best bet to do is snug the shirt up some so it is between neck and straps.
