This has been, by far, my favorite baby product and has made the best baby shower gift (Plus, you can get them embroidered)!  WHERE WERE THESE WHEN I HAD OUR BOYS? A friend of mine shared this with me and I have loved it!


If you are in need of one (or know anyone with a baby), I recommend the Carseat Canopy.  I have one and I love it.   Here’s why…

1). Keeps the germs off of your baby!
When you are out & about, it is hard to keep your child shielded from all of those germs that are lingering in the air. This is a great way to keep your child protected.   You can lift the flap when you don’t want it down, but for the most part, I try to keep our baby covered when we are out.

2). Let your sleeping baby sleep!
Our baby tends to fall asleep in the car, a lot. When I am running errands, I just put the cover down and she can sleep, uninterrupted.   It keeps noises muted and keeps her from opening her eyes and looking around (which then causes her to stay awake).

3). Blankets are hard to manage.
I used a blanket with our first three boys. I would throw them over the car seat. They were hard to use and awkward.  They were always falling on the ground the it was hard to get a good grip on the handle with them on.

4). This becomes a blanket in itself.  (the inside is SO soft for your baby to snuggle!)
This is held onto your car seat with velcro, so it is easily removable (by you). When we are out at a restaurant, I will often take it off and put it on her for a blanket to snuggle with or cover with if she starts to get fussy. It eliminates the need for a blanket.

5). It is washable (and pretty!)
I think this one explains itself!  (here are a few that you can pick from)

6). Protects the baby from the sun.
When we are at soccer games or baseball games, I just use this to keep her protected from the sun. Often times I will pull up a corner so that she can look out and see what is going on, but stay covered for the most part.

7). The best part is that IT IS FREE!!
USE THE CODE family1 TO GET IT FOR FREE- just pay the shipping costs. Woo-Hoo! I got mine for free and I would have paid a lot for it, but I didn’t have to. 🙂  Now I order them for baby shower gifts.  They really are the perfect gift.  I would have to say that this is my favorite baby product right now.  I have been using it for 9 months so far and will use it longer because when she moves into her big-girl car seat, I’ll keep it in there as her blanket.
