Best Baby Car Mirror

Safety experts agree: kids are safer when riding rear-facing in a car seat. And many states are now mandating longer use of rear-facing seats. That creates a new dilemma, however: how do you see what’s going on back there? To the rescue come baby car mirrors, small mirrors that are designed to give you a view of your rear-facing baby while driving. We tested 7 different baby car mirrors, checking to see which ones are most secure, easiest to view and install. Here are the winners.
