We bought one!  I can’t tell you yet how necessary it is, but I wanted to be able to see my baby if I’m driving around alone with her.

i have one in my car and really like it. While it’s not a must have, I like to be able to look back at my son and see whether he is sleeping, playing, looking out the window, etc. In those early weeks, it eased my nerves to be able to look back during our short trips and make sure his head wasn’t flopped over or if he got fussy I could see whether he was just restless or was really wailing. It’s nice to have…I’d recommend it!

I have one and love it! It is so much easier to see if munchkin is sleeping or what is going on.  In fact I really want to get one for my husbands car to, since I tend to miss the mirror when we are in his car.

I nanny and I have one, but technically you aren’t SUPPOSED to use them (like if you go to a legal carseat check place to have yours installed they will tell you to remove it) because it is a risk of falling on the baby in an accident.

Given that information I bought a leightweight one that wouldn’t hurt if it fell. i felt that I needed the reassurance that everything is okay when we were driving. It’s good to know that you can see what they are up to and if they are getting distressed at what level they are.

I am an auntie and I got one for my car when my niece was a baby. You know when they are brand new its best to have someone sit in the back seat with them too. However, if you can’t be back there with your baby or no one else then its best to simply get a mirror. You can see if the baby is asleep or awake, if he/she sneezes something comes out.

ONce I was driving and the baby was in the back—- had no idea she has sit up. She had thrown up (big time) and it was all over her bib and mouth. I pulled over and got her out… patting her back. All of it hadn’t come up. If it hadn’t been for the mirror I wouldn’t have known.

When we get pregnant we will get one. Plus when the baby gets a few more months old. They enough looking at themselves, cooing, and laughing at their own selves. Keeps em company!

I have siblings that are significantly younger than me (I am 17 years older than my littlest sister) and we really, really liked having the mirrors. I think they’re great. My little brother was really sick all the time, and so it would let us know if he was crying because, say he dropped something, or if he had spit up all over, etc. Also, both babies did learn to look in the mirror for the driver.

We don’t have children yet, and I probably won’t buy one because we don’t have a car, and probably won’t then either. However, it is one of my go-to baby gifts for people that do. (Along with something from the registry.)

I use one too. It’s really handy to see what is going on!

Though you really aren’t suppose to use them (projectile if you’re in an accident), we do have one for our 2 month old. He’s in a large convertible seat and it’s pretty much impossible to see him without a mirror. It eases my mind being able to see him in it easily. It’s very light weight and has a clip to attach it to the tether anchor. It’s one of those things I feel I have to take my chances with (like giving our toddler a sippy in the car, also can become a projectile).
