The Baby Trend Manta Snap Gear Jogger is my dream stroller. This is the stroller that we purchased immediately after Colton was born. We had a jogging stroller later down the line with Giuliana (we had started out with a car seat/stroller combo at first) and it’s true what they say – Once you push a jogging stroller, you will never go back to a normal one! I knew immediately when we got pregnant with Colton that we needed to have a jogger from the start! After some searching I came across this gem. One of my favorite features is the adaptability. The seat can be in forward facing, parent facing, or horizontally balanced position as a bassinet. Yes, you read that correctly! It’s [...]
With my first baby, I did TONS of research as I slaved over our registry. I wanted to make sure that we were investing in the best possible products that would be great for mommy, daddy, and baby. When it came to strollers and carseats, I was SUPER overwhelmed by the sheer amount of products available, but also extremely determined to make sure I made the right choice for our family.
We ended up with a BOB Revolution jogger (bought secondhand) and a BOB Motion (bought brand new) for our “regular” stroller. While we loved the newer Motion because the BOB Britax B Safe carseat automatically plugged right in without the purchase of adaptor, we found ourselves primarily using the [...]
As a first time mom, my search for the perfect stroller was not the most conventional. I was fortunate enough to have friends willing to give me their hand-me downs, which included a travel system stroller. I was so relived to be able to scratch an item off my, what seemed to be never ending, to-do list before baby. It was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Our pre-baby plan included making sure everything was washed 3 weeks prior to E’s due date. As I was taking the car seat cover off to be washed, disaster struck. The car seat had JUST expired a couple of months prior. The baby could be here at any moment and we officially did not have a car seat or a stroller. *cue [...]
There are many reasons why I love my BOB Revolution SE The easy two-step folding means I don’t have to struggle to close it quickly. When I need to get it into the car quickly, or ask non-parents to open it, the simple instructions “unclick the red part and whip it open” usually leave them all amazed.
One-hand maneuverability allows me to hold packages, make phone calls or hold my son’s hand while pushing the baby along. The swivel front tires means the stroller will stay in a straight line with the gentlest of pressure to keep it moving along.
The adjustable suspension system is designed to change with height and weight, and is great for [...]

Our family loves to go away somewhere warm each winter–to escape a bit of the cold Canadian winter– and we love traveling as a family! Everyone will warn you that traveling with kids isn’t easy (or doesn’t compare to those dreamy, solo couples vacations)… and they are right, it’s not. It’s chaotic, stressful, tiring…
But, on the flip side, it’s fulfilling, fun and offers some of the best quality, distraction-free family time [...]
Traveling with a Newborn? Springtime is coming! For most families, this means travel. And if you have a newborn in tow, this can sometimes be a lengthier (and difficult) process. I’m often reminded of the trips we took with my son while he was a newborn. It isn’t easy, but here are a few things I learned along the way through some trial and error.
When preparing for long distance travel destinations, consider these tips that I used, for those long trips in the car…
1. Plan Extra Time for Feedings I exclusively breastfed my son, but this applies to everything – breast, bottle, or tube. You must allow a certain amount of time for feedings. [...]
