stroller or car seat do
you like best?
When we do use a stroller,
we use an inexpensive copy of the
Babyzen Yoyo. It folds up small, it
can fit between the MRT gantries,
and it can hold a surprising number
of things. We’re also currently using
the Graco 4Ever, which is the most
amazing car seat. It’s supposed to last
you ten years, and can fit a newborn
and grow with your child until he or
she can do without any sort of seat.
I have a small hatchback and the
Graco 4Ever fits well inside. It also
has LATCH anchors for rear facing,
which is awesome because my car’s
rear seatbelts aren’t long enough to go
around a rear-facing seat. The price is
a little steep, but well worth it as it
ticks all of my boxes.
We have a Peg Perego Book Plus, and we love it! I like
the baby bassinet, which allows baby to be comfortable in
a reclined position, and the fact that the stroller seat can be
mounted with the child facing towards the parent; it’s nice
for them to see you as you’re walking about. It’s not the
smallest stroller out there, but it’s sturdy and easy to fold,
and it hasn’t given us any trouble for the past two years,
even though we use it almost daily.
If you don’t have a car or a
helper in Singapore, you have to
fold your stroller if you take the bus
or public transport. For that reason,
I’ve been looking for a model which
is light and easily foldable. I’ve tried a
few from Bugaboo Bee and Baby City
Mini, but my favourite is the Baby
Yoyo. It’s easy to push, open and fold,
and it doesn’t take up much space –
plus, my boys love it.
I loved the City Mini the first time round. As I’m a
second-hand bargain hunter I tried several, but I seem to
see all sorts of cool-looking ones about now, so I’m on the
lookout for what’s next!
