When it comes to layering clothes for winter, they may look like an adorable marshmallow in that puffer coat, but that outer layer might make them feel too snug once they’re in their car seat. Whether you’re headed out to a holiday dinner, or you’re taking your little one on their first mini road trip, here are some newborn winter outfit ideas for the car:
