Baby Gear Survey- On The Go: Seats and Strollers

Well hello!  Embarrassingly, I haven't written a blog post since how time flies and things change.  If you didn't know, we're expecting a baby at our house in July!!  I realize I should've posted long ago to share our news and excitement, but I was embarrassed of my blog tardiness and it just kept getting worse and worse.  Today I decided it was time to get over it- I've got to re-start somewhere, right?

I sent out a baby gear survey about a month ago to gather the opinions of friends who already know much more than I do about outfitting our home with the perfect tools to make life with baby much easier and safer.  I've had many requests to share the results and I'm so excited that this survey will be helpful for others besides me!  I've been contemplating the best way to share the results as the survey was so extensive that comprehensive results seemed a bit overwhelming.

I've decided to separate each section of the survey into different posts.  This will help me stay organized and will help you find exactly what you need without sifting through results that you don't care about!  Please add input in comments if you have any and ask questions too!  We've been doing a lot of researching and test driving lately!

Thanks again to all who contributed to the survey!  Your input has been SO helpful!

It appears that I don't know how to embed a spreadsheet directly into Blogger so you'll have to click on the links below to see the Google Drive documents:

On The Go: Strollers and Seats
I have included links to each item so that you can see specs.  Orange highlighted comments were ones I deemed as "does not recommend" comments.   I added my "two cents" in the right column and tried to be as honest as possible.

I'd like to add a review for one more product that my friends hadn't used BUT we test drove this stroller this weekend and really liked it.  The Mamas and Papas Urbo Stroller is a bit pricey but VERY easy to maneuver. I loved the easy of flipping the seat from forward facing to rear facing.  This seat folds easily and has a very slim profile for transporting in the car.  The construction is very sturdy and I loved how short this stroller is (not from top to bottom but from front to back). ** Update: This stroller only has adapters for Mamas and Papas carseats and Graco carseats.  A bit of a bummer since I don't plan on purchasing either.**

I hope this is helpful and I hope to hear your feedback!  It takes a village to raise a child...and to choose the best gear :)


  1. It's extremely strong and lightweight. It is recommended to go for a baby strollers with smallest weight.
