I just switched my 9-month old from his infant car seat to a convertible car seat, but am keeping him rear-facing (and will be doing so for as long as I can.)
The only problem is that on the drive to and from work, the sun is directly in his face. This was not a problem with his infant car seat, as it had a movable canopy. But this car seat (the Graco My Ride 65) does not have one, nor does Graco sell one as an accessory. I've Googled until my eyes have crossed, looking for a solution -- there used to be a universal car seat canopy out there, but they don't make it anymore. And my baby will not keep sunglasses or a hat on for love nor money.
What have the rest of you done to keep your baby from being blinded by the sun while rear-facing?
