The thought of grocery shopping with a baby is an oh, so intimidating one and something I GLADLY passed up when I could. Since Isaiah was born, we had been getting our groceries delivered and I didn't have a problem doing so. When I had gotten the opportunity to try the Binxy Baby out- I knew this would be the only way I would feel confident to brave the grocery store alone. Taking him to Target, stretched out in a hammock was one of the BEST decisions I've made. He loved every moment and mama dealt with zero meltdowns. I was dancing my way through the parking lot from such a great experience! According to Baby Center, the Binxy Baby is known to be the "top mom hack..." and I can see why, this product is GENIUS. It's one of those items that makes you wonder "why didn't I think of that?!" because it is such a simple solution to one of moms biggest struggles. I too was a victim of battling between how to best execute a shopping trip when I wave a huge carseat, a small cart, and no space to put anything anywhere. I would try baby wearing but I had a 50/50 chance on if that was going to be successful or not, especially with a wrap carrier!
The Binxy Baby takes away all of the confusion on how to keep baby at bay with it's easy to use hammock system! No kidding, this thing is really easy to figure out. I didn't read any directions (ain't nobody got time for that) and I was able to install it in minutes. We have the adorable triangle patterns that I can see working for a girl or boy but they have so many cute prints like Full Bloom or Indigo Dream which are two of their newest additions! I've used my Binxy Baby twice so far, one with him laying in the hammock and the second with me installing the car seat inside of the Binxy. Both work great, but I think my little guy likes the option of being out of his car seat better. I've gotten so many complements on it and moms can't help but stop and ask what it is. One of the questions I got a lot was "is it safe?" the answer? YES! You can read up more on the Binxy website on their safety HERE but in short, the Binxy can hold up to 50lbs and includes a car seat strap to make sure your carseat isn't budging when you place it inside. It's been tested and approved for use in all shopping carts if installed correctly.
I love how much my son enjoys being in this and feel so much more confident when taking him out- his comfort is important to me and Target runs are meant to be enjoyed! I went around to every aisle my heart desired without a peep from him. He's never been this good on shopping trips before (hince why I don't leave my house and order things to come to me instead lol) This would be an awesome gift for a mama to be- I wish I had this sooner! Thank you again to Binxy for sending this complementary product to us- we couldn't be happier! Learn more about Binxy on their website and on Instagram! What do you moms think?
