When you’re shopping for baby items, you want nothing but the best. Sometimes, you can’t afford the best but there are high quality products out there at a reasonable cost as well. One of the best items you can buy when you have a new baby on the way is a shopping cart cover. There are a huge number to pick from, and finding the best baby shopping cart cover can be tricky. I was lucky someone gave me one of the cart covers as a baby shower gift. I didn’t know what it was or if I would use it, but once I realized my baby enjoyed chewing on shopping cart handles, I got it right out and it was amazing.
How to choose the best baby shopping cart cover:
Shopping cart covers come in many different styles, but they all have the same basic goal. To protect your child from the germs on a shopping cart. Some are cushy and also protect children who are learning to sit while others have pockets. If you didn’t get one as a gift before your baby was born, you definitely should get one now. And the benefit of choosing yourself is you can find out that suits your style and needs.
Here are five of the best shopping cart covers on the market to help you make a decision.

Think about how often you go to the grocery store. In our house, it’s weekly, if not more often. Add to that the other stores that have carts and a shopping cart cover is something you will use often. My daughter loved hers. We may have to make a blanket out of it for her to keep when she is older. Even if you don’t get one as a gift, make sure you save some baby gift cards for this purpose.
