    This is true...but I personally wouldn't worry about a cover like that as long as it fits well, allowing all the straps to be positioned properly and as long as it doesn't have extra padding / is of comparable thickness as the original cover. You (general you) don't want extra padding between the baby and the seat that can compress in the event of a crash.

    For sure! I just thought I'd mention it because it was something I sure didn't know when I had DD!

    Thanks everyone! I am so excited to be able to use it. And thanks Heather, I did read that so I used the original padding (after I took it all apart) and the original top fabric for my pattern so I could match up the holes where the straps go and everything. Ton of work but gotta be safe!
