Trips to the grocery store, or any store for that matter, can be stressful and overwhelming if you have small children. In addition to possible distractions, long lines, and intermittent tantrums, the last thing you want to think about is if your children are safe.
According to the Binxy Baby website, falls from shopping carts are among the leading causes of head injuries to young children and about 24,000 kids a year are treated in hospital emergency rooms because of shopping cart-related injuries.
Shopping carts are far from stable and safe. Having a place where all of your children can fit safely can be one of the biggest issues when you are out and about at the store. And once you have your children contained and secure, where are all your groceries and or other items going to go?
The founder of Binxy Baby, Lisa Pinnell, is a mom of four and had this same problem, so from her personal experience, her motivation, imagination, dedication, and entrepreneurial skills, she invented the Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock! And believe me, I have tried all sorts of ways to secure my toddler and my infant in a cart at the store, and the only way that truly has worked is by using the Binxy Baby cart hammock. And each time I use it, I constantly get asked by other moms what it is and where they can buy one!
The hammocks fit on most carts (I’ve already tested it at Target and it works!) and sits high enough in the cart where your groceries can fit underneath. For those mamas that have twins you can even fit two hammocks next to each other in the same cart!! And because the hammock can hold up to 50 pounds, it also has a strap to secure infant car seats, which is perfect for those days you want to keep your baby covered up. All you have to do is strap the whole car seat directly into the shopping cart hammock. And the best part is that when you are done using it, it is small enough to fit in your diaper bag or in the trunk of your car without taking up much room or you can even fit it under a seat! I also recommend taking it on vacation because it can easily fit in your suitcase because it is so small and lightweight.
I love that the Binxy Baby meets or exceeds all applicable safety standards!! We own the grey/aqua color, but they come in six different colors you can choose from! And with a price point of less than $50 and $5 flat US shipping, it makes for the perfect baby shower gift or gift for yourself! I recommend using the hammock from birth until your baby is strong enough to roll, sit, or move around too much in the hammock.
