We are a one vehicle family. When J has to work at the office in Vancouver he kindly (begrudgingly) takes public transit to and from work, while I’ve been able to drive to my work. Two years ago J and I bought a little Volkwagen Rabbit. This vehicle is now destined to a future of messes and smells that we will never be able to get rid of. But this is not the awesome baby item…
Diono Baby View Mirror
It looks absolutely ridiculous I think, but it does the job I need it to do. On a couple of occasions when E was first born I had to drive with her and J was not able to come with me, so no one was sitting in the back seat with her. E has some really bad reflux issues and driving alone with her really worried me because I could not see her. Most mirrors that are made for cars so you can see baby hang off the head rest in the middle, we do not have one in our car because it does not like to move when it is installed, so there is no adjusting it to the height you need.
This mirror however can be attached to any head rest and it can be tilted to the angle you need so that you can see you little one! This has brought me a whole lot of peace of mind while driving. I can see E when she is having her little freak outs because she hates being in the car seat at first and eventually settles down , I can see her peaceful face when sleeping, and I can see when she has attempted to redecorate the back seat with spit up.
The only thing I wish I could improve on for this mirror, is that it be nice for it to be a magnifying mirror so that it enlarged the view and I could see her face a bit bigger.
