If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for muslin blankets. We have several that migrate around the house and Declan has a designated one he sleeps with every night. They’re just so perfect-lightweight, breathable, snuggly, and they get softer and fluffier with every wash. So obviously I was pretty stoked when I was asked to review the new breathable muslin car seat cover by Bebe Au Lait.
When you hear car seat cover you most often think of the actual fabric padding on a car seat. This is not a seat pad. It is a cover that drapes over the top of your car seat and attaches to the handle and protects your baby from unwanted hands and the elements. It does not interfere in any way with the proper use of the car seat.
It’s very easy to use. You simply pop the elastic around the outside of the car seat (like a shower cap) and attach the straps on the top to the car seat handle to create a cozy little baby tent. It has a zippered opening in the front for easy access to your baby and it also has this nifty little pocket on the back for any lightweight items you want to store there.
Have a puker? Rubbed it along your car that hasn’t been washed in who knows how long? No problem-o, this cover is machine washable. Just toss it in and put it back on your car seat good as new. I’ve seen/used several different kinds of car seat covers but this is my favoite hands down. Mostly I’m in love with the adorable little owl/mushroom pattern but I also love how breathable the material is. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that air circulation is pretty important for babies so the fact that muslin is such an airy fabric is big points in my book. Also it’s silent! No scratchy slippery material to rub up on something and wake the baby. It’s enough to block direct sunlight but not so much that your kid is banished to the baby cave.
Bottom line? It’s a perfectly simple product to use that incorporates comfort and innovation to give your little one a squishy, breathable barrier to the outside world.
The Bebe Au Lait Premium Muslin car seat cover retails for about $35 and comes in 8 different prints/patterns to suit just about any taste. For more information head to Bebe Au Lait’s official webpage.
