Today I’m officially 37 weeks. WHAT?! I can’t believe after a 5 year hiatus, we’re about to have another baby in this house. I can’t believe how much baby gear has changed in just a few years, it’s so overwhelming! Thankfully I’ve been getting loads of great advice from friends and found a great local baby store, The Baby Cubby in Lindon, that’s helped me out a ton. I think most moms would agree that one of the biggest purchases you have to make is the car seat and stroller! We ended up going with a new version of our last car seat, the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio. It has great reviews, safety ratings and I love the leather option. There’s nothing better than being able to wipe up spit up and cracker crumbs off a leather seat instead of letting it soak into the fabric!
We have also had a city select stroller for the last 5 years- it seemed like the perfect choice when Vivian was born because I could use it as a single, double and actually TRIPLE stroller! Which I actually had to use regularly with a newborn, 1 year old and 4 year old! I can’t tell you how many places I have packed all three of my kids around on our city select. I just assumed I would keep it, but have you seen the new City Lux stroller from Baby Jogger?! It looks amazing! I love the new colors, the lighter weight and the more compact foldability of the City Lux. And I think the compact jump seat would be perfect for Vivian, who at 5 is a bit grown out of a standard stroller seat but still likes to catch a ride now and then!
The stroller is available for preorder HERE! The Baby Cubby also has an awesome set of BUYING GUIDES for car seats and strollers that are definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market- making a choice can be overwhelming when there are so many choices!
