How to choose the right cover for your baby ?

There is a cover for every child. Car seat cover, stroller cover, sled cover: there is no limit of choice on the market and Petit Coulou offers a wide selection.

Before shopping, we invite you to read this guide to determine which cover to choose according to your needs and the month of birth of your baby.


In Quebec, we are fortunate to live in a province with four seasons, each one as beautiful as the other. Who says seasonality, says frequent change of temperatures. As a parent, this requires us to plan for everything you might need to face the weather. 

To cover all seasons, we designed three types of car seat covers. Thus, you will know which model to buy according to the month of birth of your little one.


The summer car seat cover offers unparalleled 4-in-1 protection, true to the quality and reputation of Petit Coulou. With a UPF50 rating, a mosquito net and a rear cord for adjustment, the cover is perfect for protecting your baby's fragile skin from the sun and other biting insects.

We particularly like it for its removable sun visor with zipper to protect your child from UVA and UVB rays, wind and rain. Also, its three arches of structural support offer a greater freedom of movement.

At Petit Coulou, we offer two models adapted to colder weather.

The winter cover, made for temperatures from -30 ° C to 10 ° C, acts as a snowsuit. Its fleece-lined interior ensures maximum comfort while its easily removable insulating bottom increases the warmth of the cover during long outdoor walks.

The mild winter cover, on the other hand, is designed for temperatures down to -10 ° C to 20 ° C. Its interior polyester allows your child to stay comfortable and warm in his/her shell. The addition of two flaps of insulation on the inside also enables better thermal performance, whatever might be the nature of your activities.

Both offer the same popular features that parents love, including:

  • Water-repellent and breathable materials;

  • A zipper allowing full opening;

  • An optimal structural support preventing sagging on the baby;

  • A front pocket with an integrated zipper;

  • A certificate of authenticity affixed inside to certify that the cover is a real Petit Coulou;

  • A symbol of quality and safety informing you of the suggested degrees of coldness.


The questions we frequently receive are: 1. Should I buy both (winter and mild winter) covers and 2. In which month can I use them?

Quite frankly, the best option is to get both models. The mild winter cover may be compared somewhat to a spring-autumn coat, whereas the second to a winter coat.

The mild winter model is used from September, when temperatures start to get cooler or even on windy or rainy fall days. Remember: your Petit Coulou cover not only protects against cold and rainy weather, but also acts as physical protection for the baby.

Around mid-November, you can change to the winter cover until the end of March. Then, from April to May, we recommend that you return to the mild winter cover. This way, you will be sure to provide the best environment for your child throughout the year.

Psst! Be sure to dress your newborn baby in a hat, small slippers and a pair of mittens when using the winter cover.


Our favorite is certainly the winter cover. This cover will be your best ally for transporting and keeping your little one warm during the months of November to April. But since summer is not to be neglected, and that your baby deserves to be protected from mosquitoes and the sun, the summer cover is also a must!


As you can see, Petit Coulou covers protect your baby all year round. Regardless of his/her birth month, you have various options available to you.
