Baby Elephant Ears does not attach to the carseat or harness and is intended to be placed behind your babys head once she/he has been fastened securely and properly into the seat. Many of the warnings against products pertain to supports and accessories that attach to the carseat in some way and could potentially alter the fit of the harness/straps or interfere with how the seat functions. According to the several car seat safety sources, a rolled towel or small blanket is suggested as a head support for your baby. We think we can do better than that with Baby Elephant Ears - safely and in style.
