Having a new baby this spring has been wonderful. We have spent many sunny afternoons snuggling in our backyard hammock, lying in the shade of our poplar trees and, of course, strolling the streets of our small community. Even though this is my third child, I somehow managed to not yet invest in a good stroller. I suppose I just borrowed from family members whose children had moved on to a different size or style at that time. This kind of making-do was economical but it often meant my little ones were riding around in strollers that didn’t quite fit them. So I was certainly delighted when Mountain Buggy offered me the MB Mini Stroller and Carrycot to make my newborn more comfortable on our frequent strolls.
The MB mini and carrycot is ideal for a newborn because the carriage is perfectly flat so that baby can rest comfortably on her back during the stroll. The carrycot can also be completely covered thanks to a fabric cover that snaps securely over about three quarters of the bassinet and a canopy that can be drawn above the remaining portion. This makes for such a cozy little sleeping area that I was able to take my little one out for walks even on the more chilly or windy days with no worry about her feeling the elements.
The stroller also came with a rain cover which we were able to utilize when it suddenly began pouring on the day of our town parade. The rain cover worked wonderfully to keep my new baby dry and my two older girls were sure happy that we didn’t have to miss the parade because of the rain! [Read more…]
