Day 26 - June 20, 2011

Sprout Shell Chic Infant Carrier Covers
Review & Giveaway


Throughout my pregnancy, I spent a lot of time researching baby p
roducts and asking other moms about their baby must-haves. Now, as a new mom, it's more important to me than ever to find quality baby products that are safe, multi-functional, stylish, and affordable. The Sprout Shell Infant Carrier Cover is just that.


I must admit that I was a little bit skeptical about the Sprout Shell initially. I didn't doubt that it was a great product, but I did find myself wondering, "Couldn't I just use a blanket to cover the car seat?" The other day, we headed out to Costco for the first time as a new little family of 3. I filled our diaper bag up with diapers, wipes, diaper cream, a burp cloth, an extra sleeper, a receiving blanket, and a pacifier. It was only when we arrived at C
ostco that I realized I had forgotten to grab the Sprout Shell. "Oh well," I thought. "At least I brought an extra blanket." My husband put the car seat in the large shopping cart and I threw a receiving blanket over the carrier's handle. As we walked the aisles, I could hear little peeps from inside the tent I had created and I found myself constantly lifting the blanket to make sure Adelyn was okay. Later, as we walked towards our car, a gust of wind blew the receiving blanket off of the car seat. It was then that I understood why Moms love the Sprout Shell.


Not only does the Sprout Shell have an all-around elastic to keep it from blowing off, but it also has a hole in the top that allows for air circulation, lets you keep an eye on baby, and allows you to reach in and give baby a pacifier without having to constantly take the cover off.

The Sprout Shell is the perfect thing to protect Adelyn's soft newborn skin and
sensitive eyes from the bright California sunshine. It's also the ideal cover to take with us to the beach to keep the cool ocean breeze and sand off of our beach baby. Plus, it creates a cozy little space for napping while we're out and about.


The Sprout Shell has many other uses such as a nursing cover while breastfeeding in public or a shopping cart cover as your child grows. It's even great as a clean surface for diaper changing if you find yourself in a pinch or as a light blanket in air conditioned spaces.



The Sprout Shell is made of soft 100% cotton, is machine washable, and comes in many adorable patterns. In honor of their 3rd birthday celebration, Sprout Shell has generously offered to give one of my readers their choice of any infant carrier cover! Yay!

Happy Birthday, Sprout Shell!
