Here is the child car seat accessories list that can help you keep your child safe and comfy and make your travel times fuss-free.
Having an overall protection for your child will never be possible with just a car seat’s canopy. Except probably if you get the Chicco Keyfit Magic, which provides an almost full coverage.
But that is not the case for most infant seats that only comes with canopies that still leave your child open from direct sunlight, the wind, rain, snow, and even bugs.
A breathable and lightweight car seat cover will help you protect your little passenger. Give your child a safe “environment” free from harmful elements with this infant car seat cover* that has a universal fit. And as a bonus, it has a peekaboo window to easily check how your child is doing. 🙂
Important note: Don't use a third party car seat cover while the infant seat is attached to the car seat base inside the car, as it can affect how safely attached your car seat is to the car.
Easily checking on your rear-facing passenger is possible by getting a backseat mirror.
While any other backseat mirror can do the job, getting a brand that will give you a lifetime satisfaction guarantee should it should not satisfy you is always a smart move.
Delight and keep your little passenger busy by hanging toys on the car seat handle. It’s good for improving their motor skills and visual tracking.
You can also use it on cribs and strollers.
Get a backseat car organizer that can keep your child’s toys, diapers, drinks, and snacks.
Long rides will surely need you to keep your child ever entertained. And as they grow a little older, they can get “bored” with the usual hanging toys. Stack it up with toys and snacks and other things you will be needing.
Toddler Car Seat Travel Tray
Give your toddler their own activity “table” with a travel tray. Your child will have everything they need within their reach while you focus on the road.
Car Sun Shades
Get a car sun shade to keep your child comfortable and free from harmful UV rays, especially when driving on hot days!
Clip On Fan
Strolling on hot days can still be comfortable for your child if you clip on a fan in their infant car seats. A lot of bladeless, rechargeable fans are available nowadays* and you can also clip them in their strollers.
Cart Seat Travel Cart
Parents who need to air travel with a convertible car seat will come to appreciate a car seat travel cart. Britax Travel Cart,* for example, can help you carry a heavy convertible car seat. Not just specifically Britax seats, but also car seats from different brands.
Cart Seat Travel Strap/Belt
Sometimes a car seat travel cart is not compatible with a toddler seat that you have.
Having a car seat travel belt will allow you to attach your convertible seat to your carry-on suitcase and start rolling away.
Infant Cart Seat Adapter
If they come from different brands, an infant car seat adapter would let your stroller accept the infant car seat to create your ideal travel system.
