Newbieshade-Our favorite baby car seat cover



Gosh if I could go back to when our son was born, I would have the coolest, cutest stuff prepared. It’s funny that you think you know but you really don’t. As a first time mom, I pretty much confined myself to what they sold at that big chain store. Yes you know which one I am referring to. I had no idea I was missing out on so many amazing products from small businesses such as Newbie Shade.

The Issue at hand

Let me first tell you we have tried multiple products that were left practically brand new. We purchased and were gifted car seat covers. One the material was so thin and cheap it ripped the FIRST time I washed it! No, I am not kidding. The second was better, however I hated that I couldn’t see our son and lifted the darn thing every 10 seconds to see him. You know, typical paranoid mom. So after a while we just gave up and got him cool sun glasses. That isn’t a joke, we really did! Haha. He left them on and everything! The problem however persisted; the sun in his face did not help the car ride at all poor little guy. Therefore we bought those shade you stick on the windows from Amazon. They kind of worked depending which direction the car was headed and what time of day it was. It also drove me nuts that we couldn’t open the windows. They stayed on for a while as something was better than nothing. Well now those are gladly gone!

Our new car seat cover

When I was trying to make my selection online my first impression was that they were super cute with adorable prints. I gravitated towards the grey, rainy clouds on one side and  black and white trees on the other. I love that it’s reversible! When I received it I was extremely pleased with the quality. They are 100% durable cotton. I love that I can grip the fabric and feel the thickness. I don’t have to worry if my son yanks at it in the car or starts splashing his sippy cup on it. I am more than comfortable throwing it in the wash, and retrieving an intact cover.


It was the easiest thing I did that day! Each ends has two clips very much like any stroller, high chair, grocery cart. That is it folks! No difficult equipment. Just a beautiful, well made cover for your baby’s car seat.

What I love the most.

I can see my baby! I so so wish I would have had this since he was born. Maybe he would have slept in the car more! We often still play peek a boo and he just cracks up. I leave the side towards the window down and the side next to me open so we can see each other. I am sure one he will be more interested in what’s going on outside the window than playing with me but until that day comes, I will enjoy our no blinding, car rides together.

My recommendation
