I'm not exactly sure how it would be generally feasible not to wear a coat. I mean, the poor kid would freeze to death in the 5 degree weather every morning, even if we put a blanket or something over him. And there's no way for us to warm our car up beforehand.
Does he have a fleece jacket? Fleece is really light weight and very warm. We put the kids in fleece for car travel with fleece blankets overtop and then put their heavier jackets on them when they're getting out of the car .

How did you find out that it wasn't reinforced? My manual doesn't seem to say anything about that, though my seat does have the inscription in the plastic.

My manual doesn't say it either. Do you have an Alpha Omega Elite, by any chance? My 2nd ds has the Elite, and I haven't checked it yet.

That's a great idea for next winter.

I'm looking at the manual right now.It's the one for an Alpha Omega that was bought in 2004.On page 14 there are illustrations showing how to move the bar in the back.There is a big warning box that tells you to make sure the metal bar is locked in and right above that it says NOTE:The highest position is for belt positioning use only.

Maybe they revised the manuals.

Mine was probably bought in 2002. The definitely revised the manuals. My manual doesn't say that. In fact, I looked up the exact wording, and it is very misleading about the top bar. It refers to things like "the highest toddler position", but NOWHERE says that there is one higher position for the booster, etc. The only place you'll find that is in the inscription on the seat.

How did you find out the top position wasn't reinforced?

Sorry for only visiting this thread every few days. My computer at home is still being awful and I can't get on at work.

Well,I didn't know it wasn't reinforced.I just knew it said not to use it.But that's only because my manual says it.I probably would not have noticed that little inscription on the back of the seat without the note in the manual.It's really hard to see.
