Strollin’ Along

So I was pretty freaked out by the choices when it comes to strollers. Where to even begin?

We ultimately decided on the Baby Jogger City Mini.

Despite the name it’s not a jogging stroller. It’s an “urban terrain stroller.” No, I have no idea what that means either. But this thing is cool. First, let’s discuss the fold. There is a strap across the seat. You lift up the strap — and I mean you literally just pull on it — and the entire thing magically collapses in half. It weighs just under 17 pounds. That was a bit heavier than some of the others I looked at, but light enough for me to lug up and down the subway stairs, which was my main concern. It maneuvers really easily, too. Finally, I liked the overall sleek profile. We live in New York — we need to be able to get in and out of narrow doorways, walk down narrow aisles in stores, wedge ourselves into small restaurants.

We got the red one. They didn’t have it in stock at the Buy Buy Baby near us, so they are transferring it over from another store and we should have it in a week or two. Look forward to pictures of Miss Maddie enjoying her new ride very soon …
