Car Seats & Strollers

Happy Monday everyone! Is it me or is December flying by? Scott and I had a great weekend. We had dinner with friends on Friday night and stayed up way past my bedtime. On Saturday Scott and I decided to go to The Baby's Room here in Rogers and pick out Campbell's car seat and stroller. I feel like we hit the jackpot because a guy from New York, who just so happens to be some kind of child safety person, was in there and he spent about 45 minutes with us going over anything and everything that has to do with car seats and the different companies that make them. It was amazing! We got our own little car seat safety course and had someone who knows everything about them give us an unbiased opinion on which car seat he thinks is best for us. We decided to go with the UPPAbaby Mesa car seat and I'm super excited about it!
I've heard great things about UPPAbaby in general and since we're going with the UPPA car seat, we're getting the stroller to match. I had pretty much planned on getting this stroller regardless because I think it's really cool and I've heard great things about it. Campbell will be cruising around in the Cruz!
I like that they're both a little more modern and less baby-ish. I'm so excited about getting this car seat and stroller! I used to feel bad for people who had to clutter their cars with car seats. Now I can't wait to have a car seat in my the little passenger that comes along with it!
On Sunday Scott and I went to Target to register for baby gear there. I thought that I had done enough research to know exactly what I needed and low and behold I'm still fairly clueless. She doesn't know it yet but I'm going to recruit my best friend, Jaclyn, and make her go with me to show me what all I need. The category that threw me the most was the pumping stuff. I was like ????
And that's mostly what my weekend consisted of. I'm sure to some of you that seems super uneventful (which I get because I was totally like that at one point) but it was so fun and exciting! Scott was even getting into it. This whole pregnancy I've always felt like my due date was so far away and after this weekend I feel like it's so, so close. And I still have SO much to do. Trying not to panic......

  2. A baby stroller is one of the simpler consumer products to evaluate and review, they can be easily rated in terms of safety, comfort, quality of ride, and any other category. One of the best methods for finding a top baby stroller is to purchase the one that has a lot of raving reviews that were made by actual parents or by independent expert reviewers. click here

  3. Thank you for the great post,It is really a big help.thanks for sharing nice blog.

  4. Traditionally, best baby nappy bags were bulky carry-alls, made out of plastic(meant to be leak-proof) with one huge pocket and several smaller ones. They looked outdated and highly unattractive. Now, you may come across bags made out of micro fiber with plenty of pockets.There are others made of a combination of tweed and leather.

  5. One of the best techniques for finding a top infant stroller is to buy the one that has a considerable measure of raving surveys that were made by real guardians or by free master analysts. It is incredible that we are getting this auto seat and stroller. We got our own particular little auto situate security course and had somebody who knows every little thing about them give us an unprejudiced feeling on which car seat he supposes is best lightweight stroller for us.

  6. Today's manufacturers are thinking more along the lines of function and fashion. There are single strollers that look like tractors for boys and princess carriages for girls.
