With a family of five it seems I spend A LOT of time shopping. We’re constantly in need of something, whether it be food, clothing or cleaning supplies I feel I spend a significant amount of time pushing a shopping cart. Most of the time accompanied by my 12 month old, and her two older brothers. One of my favorite baby inventions is the shopping cart cover. I was lucky enough to have one handmade for me with my first baby, but over the years it wore out and I ended up in need of another one when baby number three came along. Being the cheapskate I often am I bought the most inexpensive one at the store and immediately regretted it. It was a cute pattern, but very thin material and was so small it barely stretched over most shopping carts. I ended up spending more time trying to keep the corners from falling off that it almost wasn’t worth even using. There are a couple of grocery stores I frequent that it wouldn’t even fit at all. And these weren’t wholesale warehouse stores with the super huge carts to go along with their super sized products. So needless to say I was disappointed with my purchase and reminded myself yet again that you get what you pay for. This is why I was so excited about my new shopping cart cover from Balboa Baby. Not only is it cute it actually fits all of the carts my other one wouldn’t. Sweet!
I took my little cutie out grocery shopping the other day and was able to try out our new Balboa Baby shopping cart cover. I was able to get it onto a cart easily and in no time at all we were on our way and quickly checking items off my shopping list with no worries of her being exposed to too many extra germs. She was also safely buckled since it comes with safety strap, or it also allows the cart’s buckles to be used while your child sits in the seat. This isn’t the way it’s designed, but I tried it and that method works too if you’re more comfortable with the built in cart buckles. The cover was easy to use and folds up into itself when you’re done using it for easy storage.
I keep mine under the front seat of my vehicle so it’s with us whenever I need it and don’t have to remember to take it with us, but it would also easily fit in a diaper bag. The cover is also machine washable includes straps to secure her favorite toys, and comes in lots of adorable prints. It can also double as a high chair cover, which makes me extra thankful it’s machine washable!
