Toddlers can make a mess and ruin a new car seat in no time. Fortunately, a car seat cover can offer protection for the car seat, as well as added comfort for your toddler. Car seat covers are available at most online and retail shops that carry baby items, with various designs, styles and fabrics for you to choose. Pick the one that will give you the best bang for your buck.
Baby Bella Maya
The Baby Bella Maya car seat covers offer comfort with the added padding and protectors for the straps and belts. They are easy to put on as well as to take off. The company offers ready-made toddler car seat covers compatible with most toddler seat models that are available in the market today, including Britax, Graco, Maxi, Evenflo, Cosco, Safety First and many more. Some examples are Zebra Girl Toddler Car Seat Cover and Ginny Giraffe with Ruffle Toddler Car Seat Cover for girls, and Daddy Camo Blue Trim Toddler Car Seat Cover and Beary Stripe Toddler Car Seat Cover for boys. Piping and/or ruffles are common designs of the Baby Bella Maya car seats.
The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association honored Baby Bella Maya in 2005 with an Innovation Award. Whenever a product receives a JPMA seal, it means they are better or safer than other similar products on the market. In 2010, the average price of a Baby Bella Maya toddler car seat was $80.
When it comes to affordable pricing, the Hip-N-Cozy line of toddler car seat covers cost at least half of what most products with similar features sell for.

Just let them know, and they’ll make it for you. The Hip-N-Cozy toddler car seats are compatible with both three- and five-point harness systems. They are machine washable and easy to install. In 2010, the average price of a Hip-N-Cozy toddler car seat was $40.
