Bingo is now somewhere between the size of an avacado and an onion, according to the internet. Bingo is also still firmly rooted in my uterus. As a result, I’m having a fairly easy time carrying Bingo with me at the moment. But I’ve been told that transportation gets trickier after the graduation from fetus to baby, when the parents-to-be suddenly find themselves transporting a small breathing, wiggling, crying person up stairs, over icy sidewalks, through narrow doorways, etc. So, strollers.
I don’t own a car, but I imagine purchasing one must be similar to purchasing a stroller: comparing different makes and models, looking at the available colours, finding yourself torn between function and form. In fact, last week I listened to an ad for a car on the radio and thought “Huh, there’s a stroller with the same name.” Sea and I try to compare features (of strollers, not cars) on websites. We read about one-handed folds and breathable bassinets, but the truth is that we don’t have a clue. We inevitably find ourselves going back to the dubious reasoning of, “Ooh, pretty!”
So, internet, I beg your help. Do you have a stroller? Do you like it? Which brands are good brands? Which brands are to be avoided? What’s the difference between a Graco and a Stokke? A Stokke and an Uppababy? An Uppababy and an i’coo? A 2010 model versus a 2013 model? How bad would an orange stroller be? Please, tell me more.
