The Only Stroller Travel System You Need!

IMG_7774.JPG

What if I told you that there was a stroller travel system that had kids and adults alike in mind in its design? I know! I couldn’t believe it either. Until I got my hands on the Tango™ Travel System by Baby Trend. This travel system has so many amazing features and checks off every box when it comes to practicality, design, ease of use and, best of all, price. I’m going to walk you through a few of my favorite features that make it stand out among its competition!

For starters, it’s a travel system so it comes with a stroller and an Ally™ Infant Car Seat and Base, which for the price, you can’t beat. These 2 items together mean that you’re equipped from the second your baby is born to travel (even if it’s only to the grocery store) and the stroller will grow with your child until they’re 50lbs! The Ally™ Infant Car Seat Base is equipped with a LATCH system, making it an absolute breeze to install and to remove. It has incredible safety features, such as EPS energy-absorbing foam for superior side impact head protection and a 5-point safety harness (that can easily be adjusted and released). With mamas in mind, it has a one-hand easy-access seat release, an adjustable canopy and a height adjustable base so that it easily accommodates any car.

Now let’s get to the stroller! It has an amazing one-hand fold making it perfect for multitasking parents! I don’t remember the last time I had 2 hands free to close a stroller! With the pull of a strap, it easily snaps closed. It’s lightweight, has a super smooth ride and has an amazing over-sized canopy with UPF 50+ making it the ultimate travel companion for zoo visits, park days and beach trips!

Tango™ Travel System by Baby Trend has a fully reclinable seat, so no more missed naps and it comes with a durable and practical snack tray with a cup holder for your mini! Don’t worry, they didn’t forget us parents! It also comes with a cell phone holder and 2 large cup holders so you can bring your coffee or water wherever you go. The large storage basket can be accessed from the front and rear of the stroller making it the perfect shopping companion because there’s room to store all your purchases.

Of all the strollers I’ve had the opportunity to try out, this one is in a league of it’s own. The price, quality and intuitive design and accessories make it a must for all new and seasoned parents alike!

Outings With a Toddler? Contours Bitsy Has You Covered!

As a soon to be mama of 2, lightweight, durable and practical have become my 3 fave words to describe children’s products (and it doesn’t hurt when they’re over the top gorgeous too!). Carrying around a 2 year old and a diaper bag isn’t always easy (ok it’s never easy) so I’ve turned to light weight travel strollers to save the day 🙌.

As we prepare to go to the hospital to deliver baby #2 in just a few days, our Contours Bitsy Compact Fold Stroller will be an item we don’t leave behind. It will make navigating the hospital hallways much more enjoyable for Zane (and my husband) and it’s lightweight enough that we can easily carry it too If my son decides he wants to walk!

Whether it’s for hospital visits, park visits or just lunch at the mall, the right stroller can make or break an outing!  I always look for a few MUST HAVE features in strollers and the Contours Bitsy Compact Fold Stroller checks off every box!

IMG_6818.JPG

1. Easy to open and close. If you have groceries in one hand or a yelling toddler (much more probable), the last thing you want is to be battling with a stroller that’s complicated to open. The Contours Bitsy Compact Fold Stroller opens with the squeeze of a button and you can do it with 1 hand because it’s so light! 

2. Large compartment underneath. A lot of the travel strollers make you compromise storage for a lighter weight which means you’re carrying a diaper bag on you (kind of defeats the purpose of a stroller.... no?). The Contours Bitsy Compact Fold Stroller can fit my large backpack diaper bag underneath with ease along with my wallet and water bottle, making it the perfect companion anywhere we go!

3. Durable. No one wants to replace a stroller everytime your child spills something or everytime you hit a bump on a sidewalk, so a well made stroller is KEY. The Contours Bitsy Compact Fold Stroller has durable and soft gliding wheels that work on pavement and grass. The material is soft but wipeable and easy to clean so it will last spill after spill.

4. Comfort. Nothing will ruin an outing faster than an uncomfortable toddler. Believe me. So when I get a huge smile or my son BEGS me to get in a stroller, I know it’s a keeper! I also look for strollers that can recline, which allows my son to take a nap on the go 🙌.

if you’re on the hunt for an affordable, practical, durable and GORGEOUS stroller (that comes in an array of colours!), have a look at the Contours Bitsy stroller! It’s available at Contoursbaby.com or Toys R Us.

The Only Stroller You Need To Read About!

IMG_6958_Facetune_27-10-2018-20-14-35.jpg

I’ve been lucky enough to test out my share of light weight strollers, so I’d like to think of myself as an expert when it comes to choosing the best one! When I had the chance to test out another, I obviously jumped at the opportunity! With baby #2 due in April, I’m always looking to discover the best of the best baby products (plus it gave me an opportunity to play pretend-big brother with Zane and let him push around a stroller). I’ve been using the Bily Compact Easy-Fold Stroller for over 3 weeks - and there is not one thing I would change about it. My 6 fave features are below! If you’ve tried it, I’d love to hear about yours! (scroll to the bottom of my post for outfit details - including my hat that you can use with a ponytail!)

  1. You can fold and unfold it with only one hand

  2. It’s SUPER compact and light weight

  3. It has a HUGE storage space under the stroller that is easy to access (not the case in most compact strollers)

  4. It fully reclines so your kids can stay awake for the fun or take a nap while you shop lol.

  5. There is a handle bar that you can clip on toys to (none of the one’s I’ve tried before have had this)

  6. The lock and unlock feature for the wheels is easy to activate

This stroller is hands down my favourite. If you’re looking for a light weight stroller that you can easily carry with one hand, bring on a plane and push around for hours without getting tired, this is the one for you! Click here to learn more or to shop!

The hat I’m wearing deserves special attention too! It’s the first hat I’ve found that you can wear with a pony tail or mom bun! It has an elastic at the top so you can keep your messy mom bun in tact and still keep your ears warm (how cool?!). It’s from My Gear Online and is so practical and cute! It’s an awesome gift for the holidays for anyone in your life with gorgeous locks.

Review of the Mountain Buggy Nano

IMG-0061.JPG

Certain things you only learn to appreciate once you have a 25 pound child - and one of those is a great quality light weight stroller. I was SO excited to get my hands on the Mountain Buggy Nano. Not only is it less than half the weight of the stroller I used to use, but it also fits a diaper bag underneath, folds up in to a storage bag for travelling AND reclines so that your mini can sleep while you take over the world! Most light weight strollers force you to compromise on functionality - but not this one!

IMG-1611.JPG

I never knew until trying out the Nano that you could have all the perks of a larger stroller, but in a compact version (and for a fraction of the price!). Some of my fave features include: 

1. Reclinable seat: most light weight strollers don't have adjustable and reclinable seats so it makes it difficult for your minis to nap. The Mountain Buggy Nano Fully reclines and you can see that Zane thoroughly enjoyed his mid day siesta :).

2. UV protective canopy: The Nano has a retractible out sun hood with UV protection, making it the perfect accessory for summer time strolls.

3. Compact and Lightweight: it folds up with the push of 2 buttons and fits into a sleek carrying case (that is included - no extra purchase necessary #win), making it the perfect flying, travel and road-trip companion. I love that it doesn't take up my entire trunk when folded up and it still has a compartment on the bottom for a baby bag. When it's in the case, there is also an accessible handle, making it a breeze to carry through airports.
