Friday PB and I joined Bro, Shauna and cousin Chlo at the Zoo! It was my first all day stroller outing in the HEAT. I learned a lot and will consider that a trial run for our upcoming beach trip.
I have been training peebs to wear hats and sunglasses for a while now and thankfully he tolerates them and does not try to yank them off so that I can protect his casper skin!
I have seen this cooler for Baby Jogger strollers in there before for $12 and passed it up, regrettably, because after the Zoo trip I decided we needed one stat! I ordered it from Amazon and it got here TODAY! Don't know how that works. It had great reviews, but I had a TIME trying to get it to fit the City Select. I eventually had to add an extra piece of Velcro I had on hand to make it work out. No more $3 bottle of waters for me at the zoo! I shall sneak in my own ! HA
So below you see:
- a first aid kit
- Stroller Fan
- Mosquito Net
- bag hooks
- extra parts
- rain cover
I have my eye out for a special sun covering, similar to the mosquito net because peebs got a little sun on his calves at the zoo when he was snoozing in his stroller. The huge canopy covers most everything, but the part of his legs that peaks out. I have seen this one online and so now I just wait and watch for my discount store to have one. Sunscreen is great, but a mesh SPF canopy would give me some great peace of mind since I won't be worrying about reapplying or if I got it everywhere. I prefer the canopy nets and sunscreens to keep the chemicals off his skin as well. Both bug spray and sunscreen bother my skin so I can only imagine what they would do to his precious juicy new skin. (Babies 6 mos and under can not wear sunscreen so it is also good for that time ). They have excellent reviews online from parents talking about vacations and theme parks and how the nets allow circulation, and shade for naps no matter where you are.
This bag by skip hop is pretty cool and gets great reviews. I already have plenty of storage but some of your other mommas might like it!
MP3 Parent Console available that is said to fit all of their strollers. I found it at my discount store this weekend for $20 ( Retail is $59) and the fit is a little awkward in my opinion but I was shocked at how loud the speaker is! It is pretty awesome, especially for when peebs and I stroll the hood. We always jam out but its hard to always hear just the speaker on my phone.My stroller has a boombox. LOL
This is a stroller lock for when you go places like Disney World and need to leave the stroller to ride rides. It gets great reviews ! It comes in lots of different animals and is a neat little thing to have when you go to theme parks and such.
Just an FYI to those of you who have the Baby Jogger or who are thinking of buying one, the 2010 models are on sale now because the 2011 just came out. There are not any huge differences ( you can see from this post) so that can save you some $ if you are interested. I found my 2nd seat online HERE discounted with no tax and no shipping which is GREAT. I wanted to go ahead and get it while it is on sale and also because when you go places with friends and 2 babes, it is much easier to take one stroller instead of 2. MUCH easier! Plus little griza #2 will need it one day! Until then, Ralph will occupy it.
