I have a confession to make: I used a grocery cart cover obsessively with my first child. Now that that’s out of the way, I have another confession to make: I never used one with my second kid. And with my third? Not a chance. But the germaphobe in me would have loved to. I just couldn’t stand carrying that big, bulky thing around. But now there’s a very cool option available–and I definitely would have taken this with me everywhere.
If only the Cool Wazoo had existed way back when! This intriguing new product isn’t just a shopping cart cover. It’s a change pad, a restaurant high chair cover, and a playground swing cover, too. All that, and it folds up easily to fit in a diaper bag. Heck, if you’re traveling light, you can even pack diapers in it and call it a diaper bag. (Although I guess you’d have to find somewhere to put the diapers if you then wanted to use it as a shopping cart cover.)
With pretty designs and an instruction book that makes every step simple, this handy little product would be an excellent shower gift for a first-time mama. Yes, the name is a bit odd, and I’d prefer if it didn’t have the giant label on the front, but the idea is a good one. (And you can always take off the label, right?)
I know the second and third timers (and beyond) may still probably laugh at the idea of carrying anything more than a diaper and a few wipes. But, hey, some of us anxious types will rest a little easier knowing our kids aren’t touching the still-wet booger from the last kid in the cart. (Yeah, that’s the way my mind works.) -Stephanie S.
