When it comes to baby products, it seems that everything has already been invented. Cushions for car seat straps, mixers for bottles of formula, swaddle blankets for dummies, and loads of other contraptions. So when I see something totally new and creative, I tend to have a, "Why didn't I think of that?" moment.
That's what I thought when I saw these funtastic car seat covers from Babbaco ($88). New moms frequently take their newborns on strolls and cover their infant seats with blankets in hopes of shielding their offspring from direct sunlight, loud conversations, or inquisitive strangers. Along comes a gust of wind and the blanket flies off into the wind along with mommy's plan. Created by mother Jessica Kim, the sprightly covers have an elastic bottom that offers babies protection and privacy. And, unlike blankets, two peepholes allow mommy to keep an eye on her little cocoon nesting without interrupting the wee one's slumber.
