I hope most parents reading this have already found this device to save you the torment that car rides with children can be…
We recently drove to my grandparents homestead on our family farm which is 3 or so hours away.
I adjusted the girls routine a little so we would set off when they had both just been fed and ready for a sleep. This killed the first two hours.
But then there’s that dreaded one hour remaining.. Thank god for this car seat headrest iPad mount I got from JB HIFI. It’s adjustable to fit any tablet model too. I recommend getting a good quality one not something cheap of eBay because they take a bit of a beating with the weight of the tablet and the movement from driving on bumpy roads. If you have an old ipad floating around you could even leave it permenently in the car with a charger plugged in.
If we are going on a Sunday drive or planning to spend some time in the car in the city I bring the iPad to save any yelling and crying. It’s an absolute life saver and I can honestly say car rides with my family are now mostly a pleasure.
If your iPad doesn’t have internet use outside of the house most people will have the ability to do personal hotspot on your phone and the iPad will then access the internet for playing kids shows. I find ABC kids app is the simplest way and select a show that runs for at least half an hour so you don’t have to keep pressing play. Or better yet download a wiggles movie, but my iPad storage is too full for that!
Enjoy your peaceful car rides people! 😁🚘
