Baby is a new term in our family, as we’ve been blessed with a beautiful baby girl in September of 2014. Being a parent and my views on parenting have drastically changed from none to a priority. We are proud parents of both our furry baby pet and our daughter Maddie. And although we are still going through the first year and first experiences of everything that comes along with a new parent. I felt it would be worth while to share my personal favorites and must-haves. Everyone’s parenting style, experiences, and choices are different. By no means am I a “crunchy mom” or “modern mom” or any classification or stereotype of mom out there. Im just me, trying to learn as I go. But I am so grateful for the wonderful mothers in my life; my mother, grandmothers, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, best friends and close family friends who have given us great recommendations on things to try from their experiences. We learn from people’s choices, successes, mistakes, and trials, and so I wanted to share what we’ve enjoyed using in raising our baby girl.

BOB Revolution Jogging Stroller
A bit on the high end price point for a jogging stroller, the BOB revolution is a great stroller for the runner/jogger, and outdoor user. Its large wheels, and optional lock in place front wheel allows for easy maneuver. Its large canopy keeps baby shaded from wind and sun, and has a viewing window on top. Shock absorbing is great with this product, for those who want to take it out on the street or sidewalk on long trips with baby. BOB provides added accessories, some of which we’ve tried include the infant car seat attachment for Chicco car seats, and snack tray. There are a few models out which include extra options such as adjustable handle bars and hand breaks. We have the adjustable handlebar option, which is great for easy use and adjustment for whoever uses the stroller. Downside, although it folds up pretty easy for a heavy stroller, it still takes up a lot of space both in your car in and your house/garage, wherever you store it.
