Visiting family becomes a breeze

4momsbreeze_giveawayWe love seeing family both near and far… one thing that sometime has stopped us from traveling is the idea of do we have a crib there… is it a drop side crib of death (DO NOT USE Drop Side Cribs)… is it a pack and play from the 90’s did we loose the instructions to that pack and play will it take me longer to put it together then the visit itself… Thats been the thought process but then came along 4moms (I wish it was called 2dads or something more parent friendly) but no matter the name their products are AWESOME! I’ve been a big fan of the breeze since I first saw it at ABC baby and kids Expo years ago.

There is no silly locks and buttons and angles which you need to open it at… its just works. So Its made visiting Grandpa’s much easier this summer. After driving for hours to the end of long island you know you wont have a happy baby. Harper was actually pretty upset and cranky (can you blame her? I’d be pissed being in a car for 2 hours too).  We dash into the house and within minutes we have the Breeze playard setup and ready to go… its perfect for naps and great for me to have a few moments to have piece of mind that she’s not going to walk into my legs, while I carry in the bags.

It takes me 3 minutes to make sure the breeze is all setup and it takes harper about 4 minutes to go to sleep once I got it setup.  Now that is a Breeze #DadJoke.

We look forward to more roadtrip with the breeze and know that what harper is sleep is our own and its clean (so my wife doesnt have to worry).

Britax B-Ready Stroller 2012 Review and Giveaway

britax-2012-b-ready-108-a82-lOne thing you’ll start to notice when you have a toddler is that they start to out grow strollers… usually its by weight – the stroller just doesnt handle right or worst.  When most people start shopping for strollers they dont ever thing of the size their child will most likely grow to be… my wife is 5’9” and I’m 6’2” having a small child wasnt in the cards — back then the Britax B-Ready wasnt on the market but if I was having a baby today – it would certainly be one of the top choices.

Lets give you the run down on some specs.

For use with children at least 6 months old, up to 55 lbs when using the single chair.  You could use this stroller from Birth by using the B-Safe or the Chaperone infant car seats.

You might have noticed I said the single chair – thats because you have 14 combinations of how you can go with this stroller – add a second seat or maybe you need a second seat that is an infant car seat – no problem.  Check out all the combinations here.

Reversible top seat with 4 recline positions – so you could have baby facing you or facing away.

Foam-filled rubber tires so you never have to worry about a flat tire.

One big reason why you’re seeing more and more Britax strollers – not only has Britax one of the best reps for safety but the price points on these strollers are amazing! Check out some of the prices on amazon but I bet you could find these strollers at a family owned store near you too.
