My town pool has officially opened and of COURSE my eldest children wanted to get there the second school let out. We went but I knew that Caleb was due for a nap. I made sure to bring along my Brica Infant Car Seat Comfort Canopy because it’s FLIPPING AWESOME. I’ve been using it since Caleb was 6 weeks old. In fact, we had it with us at Disney and it was a LIFESAVER.
Basically, there’s four reasons why I love this cover:
- It’s easy to put on… you just slide it on. There’s no rocket science degree. I can’t stand baby products that are over-complicated.
- It’s both a sun shade and a bug cover. If it’s too sunny, you can bring down the sun cover and your baby is immediately protected. If it’s a nice day but there are too many bugs out, leave the sun cover off and opt to use the mesh cover instead. LOVE.
- The canopy keeps people away from my baby. OH MY GOODNESS! The first two days we were in Disney, people were coming up to Caleb and touching his feet and saying how cute he was. STRANGERS. My child was 6 weeks old. I was like… BACK UP. Once we put the cover on, he was officially protected from the world. All that anxiety left my body. He was able to be left alone and in peace.
- It triggers him to sleep. When it’s nap time, I get the Brica cover out, put it on and he knocks out. It’s like a sign to him at this point. I LOVE IT.
We don’t go anywhere without our Brica – I’m telling you. Great investment. Great gift to give to a friend with a newborn or one who is expecting.
