Oh, the Babyhome Emotion.

I received a package last week that kind of changed my life. It’s my favorite kind of delivery, STROLLER MAIL! Inside this lovely little box contained the Babyhome Emotion. It was love at first sight. Weighing in at just 15 lbs, this little beauty it super zippy for city living, has a great recline, and a wonderful canopy (that even comes with a removable extender!!).

One of my favorite features this little gem has is the storage basket. So many light weight stroller have horrible storage baskets… When you have a 9 month old and a 2-year-old, you carry around A LOT of crap. I need something that has easy access and fits my diaper bag, sippy cups, toys, etc. This holds it all and has a little room to spare… pretty amazing. The Babyhome emotion has an easy foot break that is flip-flop friendly along with a very easy compact fold. Sounds pretty perfect, huh? It is. I can’t say enough good things about this stroller!

To all my moms looks for something light weight and super easy, this is your stroller, this is a must have! I’ve had my eye on the Babyhome Emotion for a while now and regret not making the purchase sooner! For more information on the Babyhome Emotion, check it out here

Happy Strolling!

#Dadapproved – City Mini GT Double vs. City Mini Double

I am asked daily what I think about the Baby Jogger City Mini Double/City Mini GT Double stroller. So, today that’s what I want to talk about…

The City Mini and City Mini GT double (and even the single for that matter) are probably the most popular strollers out there. It’s the only stroller my Husband has every had an opinion on (other than being pissed I bought another one, ha!). He referred to our City Mini as the “Road Warrior”. It got this name because my he thought it could handle anything and everything…. He would fill it up with groceries, pack it with toys to take to the park or stick B in there and wheel him around the condo to get him to nap. By far, his favorite feature was the fold. You pull the strap that says “PULL” and it folds in a second. Doesn’t get much easier than that! He loathes folding strollers, so, that pretty much sealed the deal. #dadapproved

My two absolute favorite features on the City Mini GT Double were the insanely large canopy & near flat recline. When you are out with two littles, you NEED those options available. My least favorite feature? The basket. Small and incredibly hard to access. You know how I feel about this….

 Anyways, below is a list to compare the two. Hope this helps someone in their search for the perfect double stroller!

If your kids are on the taller side and you are a family that spends a lot of time outdoors, or maybe you live in Chicago like we do and have to deal ridiculous never ending snow storms… the City Mini GT Double is probably your best option… or, maybe you need a light, everyday double stroller that can be your “Road Warrior”? I would point you in the direction of the City Mini Double. Either way, you can’t really go wrong with these two. There is a reason they are the most popular strollers out there…
