BabbaCover in Airy Cotton: Protect Baby From Sun, Wind and Bugs

06/17/2009 at 07:00 AM ET

Most infant car seats have abysmal sun coverage because they’re designed to be used chiefly in the car. But everyone knows that parents frequently use the car seat outside of the car, often in a car seat frame like the Snap and Go, so we’re left draping blankets over the limited hood. One gentle summer breeze and a lightweight blanket often flies off. Enter the BabbaCover in Airy Cotton ($60) which provides 50+ SPF protection with the Solarweave cotton and mosquito netting which also allows for air circulation/flow. It comes in three cute prints, has a hole by the handle so you can securely grip it and fits all standard infant car seats (may not fit the Orbit).

The cold weather versions ($89) are made of fleece (which include a car and pig style) or flannel and keep out the sun and cold. Because they don’t have netting, there is a roll-up window so you can check in on baby and maintain eye contact.

As with all third-party car seat products, the BabbaCover should not be used while in the car because they are not tested for crash protection.

My Grandmother made something extremely similar to this when I had my daughter and it was WONDERFUL.

I just received one of these as a baby gift, so it was so cool to see it featured on CBB! I love the SPF protection feature. My baby is so comfy inside and it totally keeps the bugs out during picnics!

Oh, I love these. FYI, they DO fit the orbit.

Curious – why isn’t the see-through netting facing the front so the parent/adult pushing the stroller can see the child? I know when carrying the seat you could see the child from the side, but not when it’s on the stroller. Hmmmmmm?

IN response to “sam”, it’s because that part probably has the SPF in it so the baby doesn’t get burnt in the hot summer sun.

I want one for the summer and winter, since my baby is due in February the dead of winter! brrr If I looked at the website correctly, it looks like this fits the chicco keyfit 30 infant car seat?
