Who has ever went shopping with two kids? Crazy, right? Shopping with two!- shopping cart hammock, enough said!
Everyone. This is amazing!! I am so glad I discovered this product! One of the things I was dreading most of all about having two kids was not being able to get out and do things. With just one kid, I loved even grocery shopping because I liked being able to get out of the house. When I found out I was pregnant with my second I was most afraid that I would feel confined to my house and have to wait until my husband got home to get anything done.
I was looking on Pinterest one night though and saw this. My husband thought I was crazy because I was so excited! It is awesome and definitely makes shopping possible with two kids! I honestly don’t know how I would do it without it because there literally would be no room.
It’s called a Shopping Cart Hammock and its made by a company called Binxy Baby. (ps. they have a pretty cool startup story that you should read!) Basically it helps keep your carseat/baby comfortable and out of the way so that you have enough room for all of your stuff. 24,000 kids a year are treated in the hospital due to shopping cart related injuries and I have no doubt that most of them are because Momma is just trying to get her shopping done and had to take the kids.
I love that the hammock not only holds my baby but can safely hold the carseat as well because right now, every time we drive anywhere my baby falls asleep. Rather than wake him to put him in the hammock I just put the carseat inside it and walla! He is out of my way but safe and still asleep! The hammock is super durable and comfortable as well so even when he’s awake and in it he basically falls asleep immediately anyway.
I was a little nervous that it was too good to be true and wouldn’t really feel safe or fit my grocer’s carts but it is designed really well. It stretches to fit most any carts and is very strong and well put together. It also rolls up so that I can easily store it in my purse or diaper bag. Overall I have been super satisfied!
My two year old thinks it’s pretty cool as well (despite his grumpiness in this photo…) and always turns around and waves at his “beebee”. (It’s only a matter of time before he begs to get in it himself though, let’s be real…)
My Shopping Cart Hammock has been so helpful! I highly suggest it for even your first baby! I am so glad I discovered It!! All of you out there inviting me to baby showers… I bet you can guess what you’re getting!! 😉
