As a seasoned mom I have learned a few tricks along the way. Whenever I run across a product, tip or trick that is going to make my life easier I make sure to file it away. I find that when my life is easier, everyone is happier and things just run smoother. Like the old saying, “if momma aint happy, aint nobody happy”. With a third baby on the way, all of which will be age 5 and under, I have no choice but to organize my life.
I like to think of myself as a minimalist. I don’t like clutter and I don’t like useless things hanging around. In my perfect world, everything would have it’s own place. When I set up a baby registry with my first I skipped all the things that the big chain stores tell you that you need. I got the necessities, but didn’t need the fancy gadgets and gizmos. In general, I think that I made a smart choice, but along the way I have run across one or two items I wish I had. One of these items is a car mirror for my infant seat.
Since I do love a product that makes my life easier, I don’t know why I never thought of getting a car mirror to put in front of my babies car seat. I went through two kids before I realized the beauty of a simple mirror. I first saw this in my sister’s car. It was great because you could quickly glance in the rear view mirror and check on the baby. Not only that, but baby stays occupied on car rides with a fun a mirror to look at.
Bright Starts has the cutest car mirror ever! They sent me this See and Play Auto Mirror and I LOVE it! This mirror, isn’t just a mirror, check out all the features:
- Large Mirror with convex shape helps mom to see baby
- Colorful, plush Elephant and Bird to keep baby engaged
- Bright colors and patterns help stimulate baby
- 3 sewn in loops at bottom to attach baby’s favorite toys
- Attaches to seat with or without headrest
I found that the mirror is just the right size. Just large enough to see from the front seat of your car, but not so large that it creates clutter. The bright and cheerful colors are engaging and the elephant character at the top is so cute. The tabs at the bottom allow you to attach your babies favorite toys. Even my older children like playing with this mirror. The mirror can also be placed in a crib for entertainment. It easily attaches to surfaces with a secure buckle.
The Bright Starts See and Play Auto Mirror retails for $14.99. You can purchase this product on Amazon and at Target. If you are in the market for baby items, Bright Starts has a huge selection of baby gear.
I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review. All opinions expressed are my own.
