This is by far one of my favorite baby items. A car seat cover is one of those things I never knew I needed but now can’t live without. They’re especially wonderful when you have a brand new baby and every stranger you pass wants to stick their head right up to this fragile little larva and breathe all over them. Other than acting as a breath-shield guarding from lethal breath rays, they also protect from sun, wind, and weather.
Since I fell in love with my own (I now have a couple) it’s my favorite gift to buy for new moms!
I have both the Covered Goods multi-use nursing cover and the Milk Snob cover. They’re SUPER similar. Both are made from buttery soft, ultra stretchy material. And they’re almost the exact same shape. The Covered Goods cover is slightly wider and several inches longer, though.
Other than covering car seats on the go, both can be used as nursing covers! This is awesome because you’re covered 360° all the way around you. No need to worry about what is peeking out around your sides and back. This is great news for us busty girls whose unruly boobs now filled with milk are somewhere towards the middle of the alphabet.
The Covered Goods cover can also be used as a shopping cart cover! (Milk Snob makes a multi-use cover featuring a toggle that can also be used as a shopping cart cover)
Right now River sits up great on his own, but isn’t totally sturdy in a moving vehicle (shopping cart) so I still use my fluffy Floppy Seat with it. The Floppy Seat is great except it’s not large enough to reach over the handle of Target shopping carts! Considering I’m at Target like 4 times a week, that just won’t do.
Now that it’s colder, I also use my covers with my stroller when we go on walks! It doesn’t keep a ton of warmth in, but I put a blanket on River’s lap and it keeps the blanket from falling as we walk.
