To celebrate Eden’s birth and my ascent from postpartum hell, I have a fun review and GIVEAWAY for ya’ll!  Britax has generously given me three Britax Accessories to try out – the back seat mirror, ez-cling window shades and kick mats.  Without further ado, here’s what I think!

Britax Back Seat Mirror – Hands down, this is a must have for every new parent.  The first time we used this bad boy was 24 hours after I gave birth when we drive Eden to her first pediatrician’s appointment.  Newborn breathing patterns are so erratic it can make any parent paranoid.  This mirror allowed us to see if she was purple… or if she was still alive (because really that’s what we’re all thinking).  The mirror is large, much larger than our previous mirror we had from when G was a baby.  Not only is the mirror large, but it is very sturdy and thick – it gives you the impression that it is well made and will last through more than one child.  Also, the mirror is made to tilt so that you WILL see your baby in your rearview mirror.  It will even tilt so low as to see those itty bitty newborn babies.  The clips that attach to the headrest clip vertically and horizontally making it stay in position no matter how bumpy the car ride is.  Frankly, I’m in love with this mirror and I would be a nervous wreck driving around town without it.

Britax EZ-Cling Window Shades – These window shades are really handy – especially if your car is not tinted.  I have a Honda Element and my car is tinted very well, so I wasn’t sure that they would be helpful for me.  I was wrong!  When you have a baby, especially a newborn, it is super important to not let the sun (especially the Florida sun where I live) to get in their eyes.  These window shades can easily come on and off the windows making it simple to adjust the placement according to where baby needs it.  If you want to protect your baby’s eyes, these shades make it very easy!  These shades are very easy to get off – so easy that my three year old likes to take them down. :/  However, just like the mirror they are of sturdy quality – you can bend them just like a fold up sun shade you would put on your dash.  So far, the shades have withstood my three year old.

Britax Kick Mats – My three year old has taken this accessory quite literally – these are mats that he can kick.  Or maybe I never noticed him kicking our seats before?  Irregardless, these mats are long, thick and fit perfectly on the back of the two front seats of my Honda Element.  My car is so dirty from my boy, so I’m grateful that something is getting protected back there.  If I had to change one thing about these mats it would be to make the pockets that hold stuff big enough to hold books.  I have pockets on the back of my seats but with them covered up by the kick mats I have nowhere to put any books for my son to look at.  However, keeping him from damaging my seats is priority so we decided to sit the books next to his carseat.

Would you like to win these three Britax Accessories?  Of course you would!  To enter, please use the rafflecopter widget below to enter.  This giveaway ends on February 3rd.  I will contact the winner by email.  Good luck!

  1. Jenny says:

    The mirror and sunshades will be awesome for our next baby (the one that’s not actually in the works yet).
    I love our Britax carseats and these would be so useful!

  2. Sheena says:

    With two big girls and another on the way the kick mats would do wonders to keep many van cleaner.

  3. Courtney says:

    That mirror looks awesome. We have one from when Cooper was a baby, and for some reason this time around I cannot get it adjusted right. It’s driving me crazy not to be able to see Georgia!

  4. .Melissa says:

    We still have our baby mirror from Q in the car! He’s 3 and just turnedaaround last month. We definitely need a new one and since I’m totally a fan on the Britax marathon he’s been in the last two years , these would be a great addition!

  5. Emily says:

    I would love the shades! We’re in the market for some, with the sun being so low on the horizon right now. I’m sick of trying to drape a blanket in just the right place. :)

  6. Jami says:

    The shades would be great for our newborn- we don’t have any.

  7. Rachel says:

    I would LOVE the sunshade for baby Dyl! We swapped the baby carrier/ car seat combo out when he was just a couple months old for the Britax infant to toddler seat and he’s loved the change! He’s a big baby so I think he needed a more comfy ride ;-) With that change, we lost the little hooded cover and now the sun is constantly in his sensitive blue eyes :-( I’ve been wanting a sun shade for some time but have yet to get around to it as a busy new mom. This would certainly help check one more thing off the to do list!

  8. Jami says:

    We could really use the kick mats. Plus the pockets are practical for all the “stuff” a toddler needs even when traveling.

  9. Jenny says:

    The mirror! That’s one of my number one things I want to have for Baby #2. :)

  10. Carolina says:

    The sun shades! These are actually in my Amazon cart right now. :)

  11. Holley says:

    I am pregnant right now, due May 2, and these would be useful to add to our baby arsenal!!

  12. denise says:

    the shades! I have the pull-down kind now and would love to try the sticky kind.

  13. Ashley says:

    Kick mats! My baby boy loves to kick so I know once he’s big enough to sit front facing my seats will be a target! These would be awesome!

  14. He mirror for sure! I was trying to put a pacifier in during car pickup without getting out of the car and poked my LO’s eye LOL

  15. Joanne Gregory says:

    • Erin B. says:

      Oh, and mainly because I love the easy tilting with the mirror! I don’t have to readjust any straps to get it at the proper viewing angle.

  21. Amy Kelley says:

    The mirror sounds like it would be a perfect fit to be able to keep an eye on both kids in the back or trying to figure out if the littlest is crying because he needs his pacifier or his brother is picking on him :)

  22. Tina M says:

    The shades. I need them!

  23. Dorothy P says:

    I always wonder if Britax is worth the premium cost, but then I read awesome product reviews like yours and reassurance is mine!

  82. Katherine says:

    The mirror! We’re expecting our third baby in a few weeks and we need a new car mirror. Our second child had apnea and that mirror was essential for my piece of mind. Unfortunately, we seem to have lost track of it and it would be so nice to win one instead of having to buy another!

  91. Zainab says:

  104. JOyce says:

    You make all 3 products sound amazing. I would most want the kickmat – have you seen the back of my chairs?? THey are so dirty (I have light colored seats) they can’t even be washed off, i’ve tried. And yes, I agree, even though my windows are tinted, I still use a sunshade because the sun still come through right in the little ones eyes (we are in CA, so a lot like FL). And I couldn’t live without a mirror. I probably am looking back as often than I”m looking forward ;)
