Special thanks to Prince Lionheart for providing the baby mirror for review. All thoughts and opinions are strictly my own. This post may contain affiliate links.
Now that we have a baby mirror in the back seat of our car, I absolutely cannot believe I have never had one before.
For the past month, we have had the Prince Lionheart Baby viewMIRROR, and it has been a total game changer.
Prior to having this mirror installed, I would rely on my 4-year-old, Darah to tell me what was going on with baby Layah if she was unusually fussy or unusually quiet. And when I didn’t have Darah in the car, I would just have to hurl myself around to check on her whenever I was stopped at a traffic light.
Now if I want to see what she’s doing, I just glance in my rearview mirror. There she is!
The Prince Lionheart Baby viewMIRROR comes in an understated color, to blend in better with your car upholstery. I really appreciate that, because goodness knows I’ve got plenty of bold, bright colors everywhere else! It also has two caribbeaners to hold toys. Your child might enjoy being able to kick the toys with his/her feet, but I’ll tell you that this feature just annoyed Layah, because she wanted to be able to grab the toys with her hands. Only she couldn’t, on account of her car seat.
Layah is now 17 months old, and we want to keep her rear-facing until she is 2. I believe that the mirror is going to be absolutely critical in making this happen. She loves to look at herself in it and laugh at her reflection. It helps keep her mind off the fact that she can’t really see much of what is going on around her, and gives her something to focus on.
So, is this a necessary item? Of course not. But now that I have used this one, this is most definitely an item that I would highly recommend to first time parents, because it is one that I wish I had owned from the very beginning. And you guys, as of the day I wrote this, it is on sale at Amazon for less than $14! I mean, c’mon. Total bargain for how much you will get out of it. Promise!
Do you have a baby mirror in your back seat? Wish you did? How do you check on your little ones that are turned around?
