With Karolina finally getting settled, and baby #5 on the way in 3 months, I finally started to make lists of the items we will need with little ones in the house again. It’s been a few years since I ventured into the world of baby gear, accessories, nursery necessities, etc. I’m always amazed by the new inventions and products. Talk about a booming business! Choices galore. Since Garrett was born, one new item I am excited to get is a nursing cover:
I am also REALLY loving the new stroller we bought in Poland. It was a painful purchase at the time because it was NOT in our budget, or something we had planned for. However, with the broken sidewalks and cobblestone streets, our umbrella stroller was just not cutting it. Poor Karolina’s head would knock on the metal sides of her stroller every time we went over a bump, she was constantly being jarred, and woken up from naps as we walked. We knew we needed a durable, street-smart stroller that would protect her noggin but still be somewhat lightweight. We bit the bullet and bought the very pricey Peg Perego Skate stroller. The good thing was, it was about $75 cheaper in Poland for some reason, so that eased the sticker shock slightly. Here is the snazzy Skate:
Looking back, it WAS worth the investment. It is, hands down, the best stroller we have ever owned. In addition, we can use it as a bassinet for the new baby and also add a jumper seat and turn it into a double stroller. Score! Here is a video of the whole setup.
Here is Karolina hanging out in her Skate at a cafe’ in Poland:
At least we can cross that off the list! Along the same lines, I saw this new “Comfort Embrace” wagon from Radio Flyer. I don’t think we’ll get it, but it’s such a practical choice for the zoo or pulling around 2 little ones. It’s the first Radio Flyer for infants (and can be modified to grow with your children). Great idea!
That’s about as far as I’ve gotten for now. It’s been fun to browse the overall “must-have” and “best new items” lists, but still need to compare prices and read reviews about the few things we are still looking for. This baby gear stuff is exhausting! Lol.
