I know you have heard me say, many times before, that moms are the best inventors, and they truly are. When we see a need for a product, we just create it! I love that moms are so innovative, and I LOVE the mom-invented Babycapes!
I have a confession. From the moment I first visited the Babycapes website, I fell in love with the product. I have secretly wanted to review this product for LONG time, and was so blessed to finally receive the opportunity to test a Brown Suede Sherpa Babycape on my one year old! Why are Babycapes so great, you ask? Well, let me share some information with you:
- Simple design is quick and easy to put on and take off
- Overlapping back flap allows easy access to car seat straps
- Can be put on or removed while child stays secure and undisturbed
- Easily used without altering car seat, stroller or front carrier straps
- Covers more of child’s body and extremities for warmth
- Child stays warm without feeling confined
- Front cozy for tucking in babies’ feet or older children’s hands
- One size fits newborn to preschooler
- Super soft, luxurious fabrics
- Machine wash and dry
I believe the best, and most important, feature about this product is being able to buckle my child into his car seat, without a big coat on, and just placing the cape over everything. According to the National Highway Transportation Authority, you should “always remove bulky clothing or blankets before you place your child in the seat.” The Babycape makes it much safer for your child to travel by car during the cold months, which, alone, makes it worth the $39*-$59* investment. I tried it out on a cold day and it took little effort to buckle my son into his seat, and then drape the Babycape over him. Not only was he super warm and safe, but he looked adorable!
Babycapes are assembled in the USA, and are made of super soft fabrics. I love the suede on the outside of my Babycape, and the inside fabric is so warm and cozy-it’s like having your favorite blanket wrapped around you! There are three fabrics to choose from-Minky Sherpa Suede (heaviest weight), Minky Marshmallow (softest fabric), and Minky Cuddle (lightest fabric). There are two slits in the front of each cape for older babies or toddlers to have their hands free, which worked well for my son to drink his bottle and play with toys while sitting in his car seat. One size fits all, so you don’t need to buy a winter coat for years! That, too, is worth the investment.
Can you tell I loveBabycapes??? Want one for your little one now?
I would like to thank Babycapes for letting me test out your product, we truly appreciate it!
