I’m all for car seat covers, but my measure of their usefulness has to do with whether they are actually easier to install than the car seat. Thank you, Traffic Glam, both for getting into my head and making a cover that does not require a master’s degree to use.

With the quick and easy velcro mid-section, you’ll have these fantastic looking car seat covers whipped off before your kid can squeeze yet another juice box all over the place. They’re a perfect fit for Britax car seats, but work fine on a slew of other models too. I’m loving the 100% cotton covers, but if you’re feeling a little fancy, snag an ultra suede model.

While they aren’t self-cleaning, they’re the next best thing. And that is a very, very, very good thing. -Kristen

NB: We feel confident using car seat covers but not everyone does; be aware that they may not be fire-retardant and void car seat manufacturers’ warrantees

Congratulations to Traffic Glam car seat cover winner, Chris H!
