I’ve been noticing a trend lately away from some of the fancier budget-breaking dollar strollers and toward excellent quality strollers that do everything you want, but still leave room in the budget for other things. (Like, say, an iPhone 5s.) It’s not that I’m not into the fancy-schmancy strollers–because I am–it’s just that sometimes we parents want more than just a stroller. And the latest stroller from CMP fave, Mamas and Papas, is just that kind of budget-friendly baby ride. The Armadillo stroller (and yes, the name sounds like it could be from Bugaboo) has a lovely array of bright canopy and...Read More
With my youngest almost three years old, I’m almost out of the stroller world. I admit it: that bums me out. Because I loooove strollers. Especially the strollers from Mountain Buggy. I’ve fallen hard for their newest one, because it’s pretty much perfect. Hey…can I borrow your baby? The Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan stroller is a new look for Mountain Buggy with the same reliable performance and a super-smooth ride. For starters, the denim fabric is stylish without going over the top. Available in three bright color options for the cotton inner lining, the subtle denim outer fabric is a very cool...Read More
What is it about strollers that makes a big kid want to ride in one as soon as there’s a little kid in there? Nothing like a second baby to help you understand the need for a double stroller, even if you thought you were out of the weeds on that one. Fortunately there’s a fabulous new double stroller perfect for those who don’t want to pay the big bucks for a super fancy one. We first checked out the Kinderwagon HOP Stroller earlier this year and have been waiting ages for the revamped version to be available. And now...Read More
This post is part of a monthly series with our Baby Shower Gift Guide sponsor, babyGap celebrating motherhood firsts. And there are lots! We city mamas know that getting around the city with a baby is a wee bit different than hopping in and out of the SUV all day. If you’e got a trip to a city–New York, Paris, Chicago, you name it–planned with your baby, we hope these tips will help make life easier. So you can spend less time worrying about germs (ha) and more time taking awesome photos. Our cute city outfit pick for boys...Read More
When I’m out and about with my three kids, the last thing I want to worry about is whether or not my stroller will be able to handle whatever it is we’re doing that day. Will it fit through the doorway at the bank? Will it get stuck in rocks, mud, sand, or snow? Will it fold up easily and fit into our car? I have always been a huge fan of Mountain Buggy strollers, but now I love their strollers even more with this clever new addition. The new MB Mini is a perfect stroller for anyone looking...Read More
I have always loved Bugaboo strollers. They’re lovely to look at and easy to push. The design is always exceptional and functional. And they’ve got pretty darn good street-cred. But until now, my existence in a city that’s covered in snow for at least half the year has kept my lust in check. All of a sudden, however, the all-terrain Bugaboo Buffalo stroller has charged onto the stroller scene and I’m ready to forget everything I ever thought I knew about Bugaboo strollers. The Buffalo is everything the Cameleon 3 is, only–in my humble opinion–better. It’s bigger (literally–the seat is higher and...Read More
We like classic cars for kids’ gear, but in this case, it’s “cars” with a lowercase C–more Soho than Radiator Springs. If you’re in the market for an eye-catching stroller and you happen to love Andy Warhol’s trademark style, check out the latest special edition of one of our favorite strollers. We love the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 for comfort, ease of use, and storage space. Now we adore the latest Andy Warhol special edition Bugaboo fabric set featuring the pop artists iconic automobiles print. Note: the price you see here is for the fabric set only; the actual Bugaboo...Read More
The thing about high-end strollers is this: sometimes it’s hard to imagine spending all that money when what you really want is a fancy vacation. Or an iPad. Or gorgeous new patio furniture. Not every family needs a break-the-bank stroller. Especially now that there’s a great new affordable option available–with undeniably good looks, to boot. The PEPP stroller from Nuna abides by simple Dutch design to create a less-is-more approach to stroller-ing. For starters, this stroller is a looker. Plain, bold colors (which can be enhanced with optional add-ons like seat liners and foot muffs) pair with black to create a...Read More
I can’t get my son out of this stroller. This is a good thing. Trust me. My two-year-old gives the Energizer Bunny a run for his money. That is, until I introduced him to this new ride from Bugaboo. Before the new Bugaboo Cameleon 3, this kid was not having any strollers. But a miracle happened when I received the new Bug to test drive–my little guy suddenly loved to go on stroller rides. Really. The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 is an even greater version of the original and much-loved Cameleon stroller. First of all, hooray for the larger underseat...Read More
Q: I’m having twins and I need everything. Where do I start? Please help! -Julia A: For this post, we’ve called upon friend, blogger, and twin mom Kelcey Kintner for some first person advice. Twins! Yay! Wait, why are you hyperventilating? Ha. Kidding. I know it can be pretty daunting to figure out what you need when you’re expecting not one but two wriggly bundles of joy. I can’t help you take care of them (seriously, don’t even ask), but as a mother of twins, I can absolutely tell you what you really need to buy or borrow. And...Read More
