Now we know it can feel like there’s a lot to remember to bring when you get in the car with your baby. Luckily, we have lots of baby car hacks to keep you on top of everything. However, baby car sunshades are a must when it comes to ensuring your precious cargo is comfortable during the drive.
As well as protecting your youngster’s delicate skin from the sun and shielding their eyes from the bright light, car sunshades will also help maintain a suitable temperature in the car. All of this can also contribute to helping your baby enjoy a nap on the journey.
The good news is that they won’t cost you too much to buy, typically come in sets of two and can be left up all year round if you fancy. If the weather turns cold, you could always grab a car seat blanket for your little one.
If you've yet to buy baby car sunshades, here are the ones we'd recommend...
