The weather is rather unpredictable here in the Midwest…especially during these winter months. One day it can be extremely cold, with temps in the negative digits, and the next it can be near 40 degrees! For this reason, we must always be prepared with the proper clothing and accessories to keep our kiddos warm when we’re out and about. This can be a bit difficult with a baby. Whenever we’re out, we always take Kaden in his infant carrier. When it’s raining, snowing, or windy…we find that a blanket doesn’t work very well in keeping him dry and warm. That’s why I’m happy to have come across Sprout Shell!
Sprout Shell is a privately owned and family operated company. It all began when Sheri Whittaker had her third daughter and realized there was a serious need for a truly functional infant carrier cover that would eliminate exposing her baby to the wind, rain, cold, etc. She ended up making her own. Then, ten years later, her oldest daughter Kirsten became pregnant and saw that there was the same need. Together, with Sheri’s business experience and Kirsten’s marketing background…Sprout Shell was born, giving mom’s the first multi-functional, stylish infant carrier cover that grows with baby from birth through toddlerhood.
We were sent the Royal Crush Sprout Shell.
From the start, I was very impressed with the material of this cover. Having such cold weather, and not knowing whether it will be raining or snowing from one day to the next…I loved the fact that this particular Sprout Shell was made of super soft, and warm 100% Cotton Corduroy. We have used different covers in the past, but what I LOVE about this one, is the fact that it’s multi-functional. It can be used as an infant carrier, nursing cover and shopping cart cover!!
When used as an infant carrier cover, the tent-like enclosure protects Kaden from the sun, wind, rain and other elements. It’s a cozy environment that typically puts him right to sleep! I like that there’s a hole in the top so we can easily hold onto the handle and still see Kaden inside. No more piling blankets on top of the carrier and having them blow off. The all-around elastic helps to keep the cover securely in place which is fantastic!
Since Kaden is still very young, he is still nursing quite often, which means most times when we’re out in public I need to feed him at some point. Now that we have the Sprout Shell, I don’t need to worry where we are, because it instantly becomes a nursing cover that gives added privacy no matter where we’re at. I love it! I have already tried it out, and love that it stays in place and doesn’t fall off like blankets do.
I am rather particular about germs on shopping carts. I remember when Kaelyn first started riding in shopping carts, we’d pile the blankets in to help keep her from touching the cart and sucking on it. It was such a pain! When Kaden starts sitting in shopping carts, I know I will always have a handy shopping cart cover with me. The Sprout Shell can be used as a cover on shopping carts and high chairs to keep those nasty germs away from him.
There are many styles to choose from. I also really like the 100% Cotton, Disco Dot Blue Sprout Shell.
I love the fact that the Sprout Shell fits all infant carriers and is so versatile. No more having to have multiple blankets with us wherever we go, or a separate infant carrier cover, nursing cover and shopping cart cover. With the Sprout Shell, I have it all with me wherever I go. Anything to make life easier is always appreciated. I would recommend this product to any parent with small children! It’s definitely a Mommy Must-have and would make a fantastic gift as well.
