Product Review: Binxy Baby Hammock

Many mothers are told that their infant car seat can clip on to the top of a shopping cart- but this can damage your car seat’s base attachments and is a major fall hazard.

Infant car seats can tip and fall when balanced on a shopping cart- and this is where the Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock comes in to play.

This fabric hammock clips onto the sides of your shopping cart so the baby can rest inside securely, still leaving room for all your groceries in the cart. It has straps to keep the baby in place and is recommended for ages birth until the child can sit upright unassisted.

The hammock rolls up for quick storage and is machine washable.

While the company FAQ specifies it can hold an infant carrier in place, our local Child Passenger Safety Technician does not recommend using an infant car seat for this scenario.

Final Thoughts: I added the Binxy Baby to my own baby registry after testing this product- I loved it. It was simple to use and is a wonderful alternative to the “car seat on the shopping cart” dilemma. Safety should come first and this product gives us that option when shopping with infants.
