Car Seat Canopy

Can’t think of anything to get for your friend’s upcoming baby shower? A car seat canopy makes the perfect gift for a new mother. A what? A car carrier canopy is made of two sided fabric and has Velcro straps to attach to your car carrier’s handle. It then drapes over the seat completely covering your baby. I’m sure every mom out there has struggled to do this with a blanket. The problem with a blanket is that the blanket keeps falling off. It falls to the ground and gets dirty or it falls in your baby’s face making her cry. A canopy that is secured to your carrier never falls off.

A car seat canopy offers a bunch of practical benefits.

First, they protect your baby from bad weather. When you absolutely have to go out in the cold just bundle your baby up and then cover her with the canopy and she will be fine. When it is hot and sunny, keep her under the canopy and she will be shaded. Obviously there is no way to protect your baby from being out in extreme weather for long times, but this works great when going from the house to the car and the parking lot to the store.

Second, car seat canopies protect your baby from germs. We all know how dangerous RSV can be for your little baby. The canopy keeps your baby covered and blocks the germs. This is a very effective way to isolate your baby from the germs from other kids.

Third, it blocks your baby from the wind. Babies have such sensitive skin that can really be dried out by the wind. Babies also can get dehydrated really fast by the wind. The best prevention is to keep them covered and out of the wind.

Fourth, it keeps the inside of the carrier dark so that your baby can nap. It also makes it a bit quieter. Your baby will sleep longer in a dark and quiet environment.

The last benefit is that it keeps your baby away from curious children who are a bit too rough for a newborn. Innocent little children sometimes are too rough for a baby, but by keeping the baby out of sight you can keep most of them away.

The car seat canopy attaches very easily. You just strap the Velcro over the car seat handle and then drape the car seat canopy over the car seat. To keep the canopy out of the baby’s face all you need to do is keep the handle in the upright position.
