Travelin' with Baby Sponsor Spotlight: Balboa Baby

 
 
 
Shopping carts...essential when you are traveling out at a store with a child yet oh so grimy even though they provide wipes at certain locations.  Therefore a shopping cart cover is most helpful in keeping your child from touching the seat and handle.  Balboa Baby sent us the shopping cart cover in Swirl (which matches the nursing cover I already had).   
 
 
 
 
When Kenzie inquired as to what it was and I told her and she immediately wanted to go to the store to check it out.  The cart cover I used when Kenzie was little was bulky and took up a lot of room plus she didn't want to sit in the cart.  The Balboa Baby shopping cart cover folds into itself into a small pouch that can easily be stored in the diaper bag or a small nook/cranny of your vehicle. 




 
It is made of a machine washable quilted fabric and features elastic on all four corners for easy use.   You just slip it over the shopping cart, including the handle, and your child is ready to go in.  A safety strap is attached to the cover which fastens with velcro.  Since Kenzie is almost 3 she kept unfastening and fastening herself with the safety strap.  This will be great when Mason is able to sit up on his own and I need to strap him in since he is already so squirmy and wants to move!  Another great feature of this shopping cart cover is the toy loops to attach your child's favorite toys.   
 
 
 
This shopping cart cover can easily slip over restaurant high chairs so your child is protected from the dirty seats.  We can only imagine how often those are actually cleaned right?  I'm a chronic wipes user so this cover will definitely help me save in that area since you can just toss it into the wash to make it clean and new again.


Balboa Baby shopping cart covers come in an array of prints that coordinate with other products such as nursing covers, slings and much more!
 
 
Buy It:  You can purchase the Balboa Baby shopping cart cover for $50.

  2. We never used on with my first, but I'm definitely thinking about using one with my second when the time comes for her to ride in the cart!

  3. I agree a shopping cart cover is a must, I get icky just thinking of all those germs and sometimes even though they have wipes, 90% of the time they run out and don't refill them. They are also good to put on restaurant high chairs. I love balboa baby shopping cart cover designs, so cute! :)

  5. This is a must especially when you think how many hands have touched that handle. :)
    My daughter is also a huge wipes user. This would be perfect to go shopping with and eating out with for those high chairs. Great post.

  20. These look nice. Mine is an older one that I was given and it is so bulky to store. No way mine would fit in a diaper bag

  31. these are great. i sewed one myself but these are so pretty. toy loops are a must! we took "jingle & jangle" in with us to the store all the time. now that we're 11 months i don't use it as often, but ours got lots of use from 4-8 months.
