As though simply having a child at all weren’t complicated enough, enter the Stroller Shopping:
First of all, there are apparently thousands of strollers to choose from. Better yet, apparently you need lots of them – one to hold the infant carrier that clicks into the car seat (but only up to a certain weight limit), one to jog with (ha!), one for “all terrain” with monster mud wheels, one for just heading out for short trips, and if you’re REALLY COOL, one for just cruising around the neighborhood that would NEVER fit in a car to take anywhere. Surely you’ve seen the “pram“?
For the low-low price of $760 (and that’s on amazon.com which is cheaper than several other sites), you, too can have a new-school, yet OLD school bassinet on wheels. Not practical but oh so cute.
We’d honestly love help? We’re looking for the lightest infant carrier possible (without a puzzle lock, ideally) and a lean, mean stroller that’s easy to fold, adaptable as Zoe grows, and not $1000. Yes, they really do sell $1000 strollers (I had no idea). In fact, if you’ve got $2900 to spend, check THIS pram out.
For the Johnson family, not so much. Any suggestions?
