Since friends and colleagues are beginning to ask about my wishlists, I have started to look around for potential candidates.
I used to like Quinny Buzz, but after having a closer look at it last weekend, it did not fit into our criteria. It is too bulky, too heavy, too expensive and difficult to fold in.
We came across Baby Jogger at expo, the City Mini Single and love it. It is lightweight, easy-to-fold and friendly on the pocket. I did some further readings and found the strollers at Baby Jogger are built by hand, one at a time and have to undergo quality testing in accordance to international safety standards (ASTM, CPSIA). Quality and safety, they are sure one step ahead.
This was actually recommended by my colleague, who is also a fan of baby wearing. She was full of praises on how this is so easy to use and made her baby fall asleep faster and longer. Being a new mum, sleep is a luxury, so anything that can make the baby sleeps longer, is god sent. Another great innovation from the traditional wrap using a muslin blanket.
So, to the wishlist these 2 go.
Update (11/7/12): Thank you PIL for sponsoring half for the Baby Jogger and Thank you Kesh for the swaddle! You’re so lucky lil bub! 🙂
