Stroller MUST have!

Okay so really you know your a mom when you fall in love with the perfect stroller! While I was pregnant with Evie we registered for lots of things. A stroller is a must have. So I wanted a multi-purpose stroller. You need to think of these things before you get a stroller so you don't end up with 10 strollers. I knew I wanted 2. A larger one for walking/jogging and then a small one to get around small area places like all my antique shops! :)

Our stroller we registered for was from Target. My best girlfriends got us this. We were thrilled and we LOVE it. We've gotten so many compliments on it. This is what is awesome about it:

1. It's affordable
2. Great reviews
3. Safe- locking wheels
4. It has the infant car seat attachment
5. You then can use it after the baby is out of the car seat
6. The seat lays all the way down. Which is amazing especially if you need to do a diaper change. BOOYAH!
7. Folds for storage
8. Has a large basket underneath to hold items
9. Easy to clean
10. The color is neutral for Boys & Girls
11. Only requires one hand to fold up. Which you don't really think about until you have a screaming child that you are holding in the other arm.
12. It has a canopy for shade

Here it is: We love this stroller. It really was a life saver when Evie was tiny tiny. I took this to all my dance camps with me!

Okay the only bad things about this stroller is that it is rather large. It folds up great but takes up most of my trunk space in my jeep. The next one is that there was no place for keys, water bottle, or your wallet. So we had a to buy a little thing which was an additional $15. Yuck.

On to our other new stroller. This stroller I am just thrilled about. I take Evie antiquing with me all the time and usually just put her in my moby wrap since the stroller above is soo large it just makes sense to not take it. Well now that Evie is older we wanted to invest in a tiny little stroller as well to take with us places. My sister in law suggested an umbrella stroller. So I did my research. I refused to pay tons of money. I was convinced I could find a great one for a great price. I searched Amazon and found this puppy.

The first years Jet Stroller:

I am pretty much in love with this stroller. I love the color. It does come in bright colors but I wanted to go with neutral so gray it was. This was easy to assemble just put the wheels on. It has a basket underneath, it has a canopy up top, it comes with 4 compartment that you can sit your drinks in, it has a zipper compartment and 4 small mesh pockets, adjustable straps for Evie, easy to fold, weighs 11lbs, AND AND AND AND The price was unbelievable for all of these things. It was on sale at Amazon for $36.00. Oh yeah and the grand total with shipping was $40.00. I say I found a gem. We have already used it and we love it! Sooo all my mommy to be friends out there if you are in the market for a stroller with multi-purpose qualities check these out! They are must haves!!
