Baby Gear

Babies require a lot of gear. Anyone with kids knows this firsthand. Charlie has so much gear that it's starting to take over our home. And now...we are in need of something else - a jogging stroller. Has anyone out there researched jogging strollers? If so, which one should I buy? :) I have tried to make myself do my own research but I'd much rather do other things (like read blogs :)). So if anyone one out there has any recommendations, please lemme know!

I think we have a Baby Trend- a double though. We bought our single one from Target when Anna was the lone child. Their brand was every bit as good as the more upscale models. Just don't be tricked by all the bells and whistles of the chic strollers. However, if you are looking for a swivelling front wheel, you may want to be a little more selective in your choice. The swivel wheel definitely makes life easier- and the turns of running easier as well.

BAH! Your new blog format startled me this morning! I like it though. Won't you melt running outside in GA?

Dreamer Design makes great jogging strollers (we have the double version.)
joggingstroller.com is an excellent resource- they've done all the research already and give honest reviews and comparisons.
Yes- babies require a TON of stuff!

Oooo, I LOVE the new site! I've been reading all my blgos on this new blog feeder I have, which means I never actually SEE the sites...and have gotten lazy about making comments. But this is great! I love the pix of you and C. I have to go with your friend, Marlo. I have a Dreamer Design Rebound and I absolutely love it. So much so that I'm not going to get rid of it when baby #2 arrives. I'm not too much of a double stroller fan living in the city and all with tight sidewalks or I might splurge on their double. But for now, I jog early mornings before Matthew leaves, so I can just take whichever kiddo is up that early. I would check out joggingstrollers.com, but then if you find one you like, I'd google it and search around for a bit because you can ALWAYS find a cheaper deal out there and most jogging strollers are shipped for free because they're over the $75-$100 mark. I got my Dreamer Design from a place called tinyride.com for $50 less than joggingstrollers.com. If you're not going to be using it for your main jogging time though, since you have the treadmill, I'd go for a cheaper model, like the Baby Trend ones. They're perfect for just strolling/walking around. Hope that helps!!
Love,
