    Leather and baby car seats

    Does anyone know a solution to prevent my leather being dented (I don't know if that's the right term to describe it) from my kids car seats. Is there something I can put under the seats to prevent the dents? I tried folding up a blanket and putting it under the car seat but it didn't work.

    Think about how snowshoes work...the legs of the car seat exert a lot of force through a very small surface area. So you need something that is going to provide more surface area to disperse that force. A wider solid base of some sort will do the trick.

    I use a seat saver. But it still leaves impressions. Even though a lot less than it would have been without it.

    Another option, although less nice-looking for sure, is to use towels rolled up below the car seat.

    Seat saver works fairly well and also catches all the debris that emanates from children at all times. Looks better than rolled up or folded over anything.
    Not as many parts left over this time... what am I missing?

    Can still hear the kid in the hatch, only works for sedans.
