Which stroller to buy? How about the one that makes you happy to push every day

One of the questions we’re most often asked: which stroller to buy? We often recommend travel systems, which let you couple a great stroller with that baby seat you’re going to need. But a great travel system is one thing; great travel system in colors that make your heart race is another thing altogether. I was excited to learn that Britax is releasing some new fabrics this season to take their B-SAFE infant car seat and B-AGILE stroller from the red and black offerings to a fun Kiwi and sophisticated Sandstone –that’s bright green and tan to those of...

Bugaboo goes neon – cue the opening to Karma Chameleon. Or Cameleon?

Back after the sad demise of neon in the 80s, I really thought I would never thought I would see neon again. Boy George, was I wrong. And now even Bugaboo is getting into the neon action, and it puts the boom boom into my heart. Personally, I think the new NEON POP collection is absolutely gorgeous. A beautiful navy fabric and Bugaboo’s first-ever navy chassis on the Cameleon are complemented by striking hits of fluorescent red on the wheels, zippers, buckles and more. The best part is that even if your love affair with neon was as short-lived as...

The stroller pad as cozy as a mattress

There have been many times when I’ve wanted nothing more for my baby to just chill and take a snooze in the buggy when all he does is fuss. But now that I’ve discovered this new stroller pad that is so comfortable, I’m tempted to sit on it myself. The new NuComfort Memory Foam Stroller Pads from Tivoli Couture are lined with high density memory foam to give your little peanut a luxurious ride. It self-adjusts to your child’s body and helps with shock absorption–a huge plus when navigating bumpy city blocks and rough terrain in my neighborhood. But...

Shower the strollers you love with love

You’re probably going to think I’m crazy, but one of my favorite baby shower gifts in the Cool Mom Picks Baby Shower Gift Guide this year is a stroller cleaning kit. I know. Weird, right? But, hear me out. Not only does the BUGGYLOVE Organic Stroller Cleaning Kit contain everything you’ll ever need to clean and maintain baby’s ride, the products are all made of natural and organic materials. Even the squeak-eliminating Wheel Love is made from citrus and other plant oils. None of that smelly, aerosol stuff you might otherwise have to use. How cool is that? I’ve...

A stroller deal from Phil & Teds and Mountain Buggy to get excited about

Some deals are just too good to keep to yourself. Especially when it involves a stroller, since great buggies can be so pricey, but are so integral for every family with young ones. Two of Cool Mom Picks’ fave stroller brands, Phil & Teds and Mountain Buggy, will be offering their strollers on the chic flash sale site Gilt Kids tomorrow with an awesome accessory thrown in. It’s already sweet to get a Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle for $100 off the sticker price or a Phil & Teds Explorer for $130 off the price–but with either one, Gilt is...

The stroller bag for baby hipsters

Not every baby wants to jet about town covered in a glorified sleeping bag. Some may feel the need to be a little more stylish than that. For those baby hipsters, we’ve got just the solution for chilly days. Behold the Smally Hoodmuff. I love this thing. Not only is it certifiably adorable–I mean come on, it looks like a comfy hoodie sweatshirt–it’s also ridiculously easy to use. We’ve had no trouble attaching it to our stroller seat and zipping baby in. And though it’s obviously not intended for frigid  winter days, I like it as an extra layer...

The Bugaboo Cameleon goes purple for 2012

My favorite color is purple, which not an easy shade to find on a stroller–until now. The coveted Bugaboo Cameleon just added a gorgeous new shade of deep purple to its family and we’re digging it. But if you do too, you have to hurry! Obviously a Bugaboo Cameleon is a fantastic stroller choice, regardless of the color, but the gorgeous new deep purple hue ads a modern style statement, if red and navy aren’t your style. Unfortunately, it’s available only for a limited time–and only at Buy Buy Baby. But the Chameleon stroller itself will last you a...

A convertible stroller blankie that changes with the seasons

After a very generous stretch of unseasonably mild weather in New York, the freezing cold is here (sigh). Rather than pretend I live in LA, I have to take winter seriously this year since I have a new-ish baby to keep warm. Thankfully I found a new stroller blanket from 7 A.M. Enfant that feels like the coziest puffer coat and can still be used when it finally does get warmer again. [don’t miss a great giveaway after the jump!] Since strollers are the main mode of transport for us city moms, I make sure whatever is attached to...

A warm, snuggly, weatherproof and goofproof stroller blanket

It’s that time of year again when we know the cold weather is near. Or for those of us in the northeast who already got dumped on this weekend–it’s already here. Sigh. Every winter, I spend no less than 30 minutes getting my son bundled and out the door. Now that I have a second baby to tend to, I’m really happy to have found a great stroller/carrier/car seat blanket that’s a cinch to attach. [don’t miss a great discount after the jump!] The new Cold Weather Pouch from Rain or Shine Kids is a multipurpose, powerhouse of a...

Breaking news: BOB stroller recall

The CPSC action du jour is a BOB stroller recall affecting nearly 500,000 single and double strollers sold in the US and Canada. Evidently the backing behind the company logo on the stroller canopy can detach, and babies, particularly those in infant seats, can reach it and put it in their mouths. While of course choking hazards can be quite serious, fortunately no children have been hurt. If you own a BOB stroller (a very good one, in our estimation), the solution, according to the CPSC is simply to remove the embroidery backing patch from the canopy (visit www.bobnotices.com...
