Why It’s Best To Have a Baby Car Mirror In Your Vehicle

A must-have item for families with newborns is a baby car mirror. Newborn car seats are safest when they are rear-facing. Turning around while driving to see if your baby is okay can be highly risky. However, you will not always have someone in the car with you to check up on your newborn, so this little gadget makes driving safer for all motorists. 

Gumtree offers advice on why new parents should consider a baby car mirror:

  • You can see why your baby is upset
  • You can see what your baby is up to during the ride
  • You can see if they are sleeping, eating, or enjoying the ride
  • Your baby will know that you are there, as they can see you in the mirror too

Key pointers to look out for when purchasing a baby mirror for your car:

Price: Second-hand options will work just the same as brand new baby car mirrors. You won’t be using this for a long period, so rather invest elsewhere.

Easy to use: Is the product easy to assemble and use? No one has hours to spend on assembling one baby car mirror. Find one with Velcro straps so it is simple to use, and easy to put on and take off.

Safety: Your little one’s safety comes first. Look to see if the quality of the material is good and baby safe. The mirror must be shatterproof tested and approved.   

Wide-angle: You want to be able to see your baby and their movements, not just their face. Make sure the brand you are looking at has a wide-angle function.
