Traveling with kids is one thing, but some days, leaving the house with your kids can seem like a challenge in itself. Driving with your kids in the backseat can also feel like the worst version of distracted driving, far worse than texting or eating.
Luckily, there are some awesome hacks and gadgets that we’ve compiled to make driving with your kids in the back seat that much easier!
We’ve all seen the mirror hacks to see your baby in the backseat, but this takes it to another level. No more mirrors falling down or adjusting, no more having to reach back to fix them or try to get a peek at your little one yourself. This camera acts as a mirror so you can keep an eye on your baby SAFELY while driving.
Cars can get messy, easily. Has a little human taken over your backseat with toys, stuffed animals, and other accessories thrown about your backseat? These back seat organizers can turn your chaos into a neatly organized space. Especially if your kiddo is big enough to grab and PUT AWAY their own toys. This will teach them to clean, even while being in a car. These organizers can also be used to create an on-the-go changing station with extra diapers, wipes, and everything else you may need.
Booster seats are so important but can be a hassle to bring back and forth between family cars. This grab-and-go booster seat is not only safety tested and globally regulated, but it is super portable. This might be the perfect product for you if your kid needs to be picked up by someone else from school or grandma is on the way to get them. It folds and fits perfectly in your bag for on-the-go use.
You have an iced coffee (because you need it), your kids have their bottles or sippy cups, you brought water too…and suddenly, you’re out of cupholders. If your car doesn’t have enough cupholders for your family, this 4 in one will help you hold all the drinks you need. It can also hold your cell phone or sunglasses which is great!
Using a collapsible laundry basket/trunk organizer for winter attire
This TikTok mom brings up a GREAT point. In the winter, it is super important to have all of the winter attire your kids will need, no matter where you’re going. It can also be unsafe for your kids to be wearing big bulky jackets while strapped into the car. Keeping a laundry basket (especially a collapsible one) or having a trunk organizer can make bringing winter attire around with you so easy.
