In an earlier post, I talked about baby car seats and that they can combine into strollers for easy use. Some can be purchased as a package. But what if you just want a stroller? Maybe your baby is no longer a baby and you want to take longer strolls. (See Related: Baby Strollers and Car Seats; Did you know they combine?)
While they make plenty of 4-wheeled strollers that are great, in this post, I’ll be touching on just the 3-wheeled ones more specific for jogging. (Summer is coming, people love to get outdoors!)
Below are two of the top rated jogging strollers of 2018.
Costzon Baby Jogging Stroller
The Costzon jogging stroller comes with 2 cup holders and a closing tray compartment that can hold your phone, keys, or whatever smaller item you need to take with you on your walk.
It also has a lockable front wheel. This is important, some strollers have a free moving front wheel, and that can sometimes make you lose a little control. A lockable wheel makes the stroller sturdier. Continue reading “Jogging Strollers”
Ok, so a couple of weeks ago when it was below freezing, I wrote about the toddler ponchos. My son received one for Christmas, he loves it, all is well. Today, I stumbled across another amazing item for those cold winters. All these moms who take initiative and create these genius inventions, way to go!
So, what great thing did I find this time?

Being as it is currently 13 degrees below zero here today, I thought I would remind you about some winter car seat safety. It is NOT safe to put your baby or child in a big snow suit or puffy coat and then buckle them in their car seat. If a crash were to occur, your child would slide right out of their harness. But, it’s cold, you want to keep them warm, so what can you do?
Of course, you can put blankets on top of their harness, and put their coat on after unbuckling. But what if there was a simpler solution? Continue reading “Car Seat Poncho – Winter Safety for your Child!”
When traveling with children, you have a choice to make. Bring your own car seat, bring it on the plane, have it with you all vacation, or rent a car seat when you get your vehicle?
Most car rental services will offer a car rental car seat. For a price. There are also some other things to take into consideration.
If you are a member of AAA, they offer one free car seat through Hertz Rental. Most dealers will charge around $15 a day per seat, with a cap of $60-70 for your trip, per seat.
For some, that price tag might make you decide to purchase a seond car seat for just traveling purposes. There are plenty of affordable one’s out there, like this Evenflo Tribute. Continue reading “Car Rental Car Seats”
I’m going to go over a couple of options here. Legally, you can have a child up to 24 months of age sit on your lap during a flight. You don’t have to pay for an extra seat, but if it’s a long flight, maybe you don’t want to have to hold them for the whole time. They do make car seats for airplanes, and they also make airline certified travel bags for your current car seat.
Car Seat Travel Bag
A car seat travel bag is a great idea if you do decide to hold your child on your lap, but need your car seat for the rest of your trip. It is a good way to protect your current car seat from scratches and debris while on the go.
The Wheelie Car Seat Travel Bag is easy to use when gate checking a car seat, and made of water-resistant, heavy-duty fabric. It has an adjustable interior strap to hold the strap in place, dual rubber wheels, and a solid platform to prevent dragging. Continue reading “Car Seats for Airplanes – Need help traveling?”
