This post is not sponsored in any way. The stroller was purchased with our own money, and these are my original thoughts.
When I was pregnant with our first, I felt so overwhelmed by the amount of products we needed to register for, that I didn’t do enough research on what stroller would be best for me! I ended up just getting the first stroller that the lady working at Buy Buy Baby suggested (Baby Jogger City Mini GT). This stroller was great and had a lot of good features, BUT there were a lot of things about it that didn’t fit well with my lifestyle.
Now that we are expecting baby number 2 in just a few weeks, I decided it was worth the money to buy a stroller that would really fit my needs as a work-at-home mama!
Things I was looking for in a new stroller:
Narrow width for shopping trips 😉
Easy to fold up
Lots of storage underneath
After doing research and talking to my Instagram followers (friends), I knew Uppababy was the answer! Next, I had to decide which stroller best fit our family.
This was the hardest decision. Uppababy also makes a stroller, called the Vista, that is larger and has the option for two seats! I went back and forth on this decision so many times, but ultimately decided that I would rather have the smaller/lighter stroller with one seat since Lawson is going to be 3 when baby sister arrives, and he is a big boy! Most of the time he walks with me when we go shopping now anyways. The biggest deciding factor for this was when I compared the width of the Vista to my current Baby Jogger. It was just as wide, and I was really wanting something more compact.
BUT, if you are reading this trying to decided which stroller to buy for your growing family, and you plan to have kids close together, the Vista is the way to go!! I would have gotten it FOR SURE if we were planning to have more children in the future.
I’ve been using our new Cruz with my 2 year old for a couple of weeks now, and I love it so so much! It is super easy to fold up and store in my trunk (I can even do it 9 months pregnant). I love how much space there is for storage underneath; I can fit my large diaper backpack AND shopping bags!! I love how easy it is to set the brakes and to flip the seat around so Lawson can face me. We plan to buy the Uppababy Mesa carseat for when baby sister is here, and it attaches to the stroller base without adaptors. It is so easy!
I love how convenient this stroller is and I wish I had done my research in the past so we could have been using it from the very beginning.
