Because of being Canadian it seems that finding an adorable girly car seat that weighs very little was next to impossible for me. I was unhappy with the car seat Kinley ended up with but as long as she was safe that was the only thing that mattered to me and I could deal with the color…mostly. Then I found Baby Bella Maya, now Kinley is in adorable girly colors while in a safe seat. I received the Zoe Zebra Infant car seat cover which retails for $74.95 and consists of replacement canopy, seat cover and match strap covers.
This is what my car seat looked like before I put the Baby Bella Maya stuff onto it. It was grey and blue and too drab for my girly girl. I really wanted pinks and patterns more fitting for my daughter.
Then we received the Baby Bella Maya stuff in the mail, it came in four pieces: the hood, the seat cover and then two shoulder strap covers.
Installation onto the car seat was super easy. First off the actual seat cover itself goes on over the current seat fabric so the only thing I had to do was release the straps from the back of the car seats to install the seat cover and reattach them. The hood has two different installation methods depending on your pieces on your car seat. Mine attach together in the center at the top so I opened that up and removed my old hood, then I fed this one through the plastic and did it up with the easy access slot in the center of the Baby Bella Maya Hood. Then I Velcrod the strap covers around the straps and we were done and good to go.
It took me about 5 minutes to install my new fashionable car seat cover and we are very much in love with it. The one and only thing I do not like is that I find it hard to get the hood to go all the way up unless I stop to mess with it to tuck it between the car seat and the handle because it is a little thick. Other then that I love this set and even that is not a deal breaker for me I would totally buy another one of these if for any reason I needed to and I do highly recommend it to you my readers because it may be different on your car seats then it is on mine.
The Infant car seat covers are available on Baby Bella Maya in both girl and boy patterns for $74.95.
Is your baby out of the infant car seat? No worries Baby Bella Maya also makes a cover for a toddler car seat. If you have a Britax it would fit right onto that and you could dress it up and it makes for super easy washing. Baby Bella Maya also carries other things such as stroller blankets, shoes, headbands, leggings and diaper covers. I highly recommend you check them out I bet you will find a bunch of stuff like me that you just cannot resist.
