Top Tips When Choosing A Mirror

Curved Mirror

You may wish to choose a convex mirror – this is one that is a little curved and not flat.

This means your mirror can show you a wider area,

Clear Mirror

Avoid cheap supermarket models. These often use substandard glass that soon lose their clarity and attract smudge.

Security

Ensure you get a mirror that will tighten securely. It will also help to get one that is simple to set up and adjust.

The last thing you want is to hit a road bump or have to quickly stop only for the mirror to fall off.

Headrests

Most baby car mirrors need a headrest to attach to.

Double check that your potential baby car mirror will work with your headrests.

Shatterproof

The most important part of the baby car mirror is that they are shatterproof in the event of an accident.

FAQ’s Baby Car Mirrors

What is a baby car mirror for?

It enables easy viewing of your baby in their car seat when you are in the front seat of a car.

How do you install a baby car mirror?

Usually it can be secured onto the headrest in front of your baby’s car seat, so it offers a wide angle view of your baby.

Most come with ties or straps that wrap tightly around the headrest.

What types of baby car mirror are there?

There are two types, one which can be used with rear-view carseats and the other which is suitable for front-facing seats.

Car mirrors come in various shapes and sizes, so you just need to choose one that works best for your carseat and your baby.

If you have a front-facing carseat, you can get baby car mirrors that attach to your rear-view mirror or visor so that you can have a better line of sight.


Final Thoughts

My overall top pick is the baby car mirror from Royal Rascals because it’s good value, simple to install, flexible and stable and has thousands and thousands of 5 star reviews from parents.

I hope this list of the best baby car mirrors was helpful.
