Here’s a shout out to all the new parents out there! You’ve gotten bath time under control, figured out how to swaddle correctly and even have a few pieces set aside for them from Ellen’s super cool new GAP collaboration. But there’s one thing you didn’t know you needed until now: a dashboard cam for your car to keep an eye on baby.


The Tiny Traveler is one of those things that you never knew you needed but definitely can’t live without, like a back-up camera (which the parent company also makes!). You simply mount the monitor to your dashboard and mount the camera on a headrest or suction it to a window so you can see baby in the backseat without ever having to take your eyes off the road.


It can reach as far as 16 feet, so even those of you with toddlers in a Suburban will be able to see all the way to the back (and break up any brewing fights). There’s even a night vision element, so you can peep your little peeps during a long night drive. It’s just one more way technology is making life easier — and most importantly, safer — and helping with the whole “happy baby, happy mama” thing.

What does your babe like to do in the car? Tell us in the comments!
