There are a lot of products I’m excited about using with this guy I didn’t use with Easton. I really had no idea what was out there in the whole wide world of baby things, so I didn’t know what I was missing out on! But hey- mommy blogging keeps you a little more in-the-know 😉
One thing I didn’t have with Easton was a car seat cover. And while it wasn’t something he desperately needed, it would’ve been a really nice way to keep the sun off him, and to keep strangers from ogling over him while he was napping (my biggest pet peeve).
And that’s why with little man on the way I had to find one. But I had a few requirements. 1) It couldn’t be ugly. I know that’s silly, but with so many options out there I didn’t want to spend money on one that wasn’t cute. I’m the one carrying it around. 2) It had to actually cover the carseat. Not just awkwardly drape around it, but cover it. And 3) It had to be efficient space-wise. I carry a Fawn Design diaper bag and find that it’s pretty spacious, but I also have to start packing for two. While I generally don’t carry much for Easton, babies need a lot more with them.
The Loved Littles car seat cover not only fills my immediate needs as a car seat cover, but also takes on three more roles: a nursing cover, high chair cover, and shopping cart seat cover. That means that I’ll only need to carry this one item and I’ll automatically have four things with me. How awesome is that?!
Now I know I haven’t gotten to actually use it beyond just testing it out, but I’m totally sold on this. It’s not just a super cute cover, but it’s functional and lightweight so when it inevitably hits that obnoxious 100+ degrees here I’ll feel comfortable using this product to block the sun from our babe because I’ll know he’s not going to have tons of extra fabric trapping the heat around him.
Plus, it’s black + white striped and absolutely adorable. I love the stripes. They’re not too pattern-y, and they’re super gender neutral so I’ll be able to use it with any future babies we have, boy or girl.
But the best part? It’s only $18 on Amazon! <a target=”_blank” href=”https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018J791Q4/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B018J791Q4&linkCode=as2&tag=messybunmama-20&linkId=43c7c33175b1505774c876b7a8f9db44″>Click here to shop this cover!</a><img src=”//ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=messybunmama-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B018J791Q4″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” />
