The hat is strongly recommended, as 10% of body heat is lost through the head.

It is important to always open the Petit Coulou to prevent your child from getting too hot inside the car seat.
11 - When should I use the insulated backing?
We recommend the use of the insulating backing for outdoor walks in colder winter temperatures.
Consider your child’s metabolism and weather factors. Check his body temperature so he doesn’t get too hot.
12 - May I use the removable insulating backing when my baby is in the car?
Car seat manufacturers advise against using an insulated backing when driving in the car.
The insulating backing is designed to protect baby during long outdoor walks.
13 - May I wash my cover?
YES , with cold water, double rinsing to remove soap that may remain in the fibers of the fabric. Hang to dry.
14 - Can I put the cover in the dryer?
YES , but be aware that the water repellent treatment is guaranteed for about twenty drying.
15 - What is the difference between the mid-season and winter covers?
The mid-season cover has a single layer of insulation and keeps your baby warm up to temperatures of about 0°C.
The winter cover has two layers of insulation and keeps your baby warm up to temperatures of about -25°C.
If the winter coat you wear in freezing becomes too hot, so will the Petit Coulou Winter Cover. It would therefore be preferable to choose a mid-season cover.

Our covers are subjected to thermal resistance tests in a laboratory recognized by Health Canada and the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the United States.
17 - Does the mosquito net on the car seat or stroller cover protect my baby from UV rays?
