Baby Shower Gift Guide: Day 2, GEAR
You all know by now that I’ve had a bit of a fixation on strollers since moving to New York City with two little children. I’ve documented my Stroller Obsession thoroughly in my quest to find the “perfect” stroller-for city life or otherwise, and ultimately have learned that truly- there isn’t a single perfect stroller. There are a few that stand out as my favorites, however, and Britax is right there at the top of my list.
In terms of functionality, ease of use, quality and price point-Britax always gets an “A”. Their strollers and travel products are built for the long haul, yet look sleek and maintain quality through years of use. I have had nothing but excellent experiences with Britax since we purchased our first Chaperone for Jack in 2007. You can find my reviews of the B-Ready and Britax Baby Carrier by following the emboldened links.
The Britax B-Agile is an excellent stroller for a singleton from birth until 55lbs. It steers like a dream, collapses with a one-hand fold, is super lightweight and has a ton of storage. This is a stroller that I can easily toss into the back of a cab at the last minute if needed and can store in my teeny and cramped coat-closet. By all accounts this stroller meets every need.
Travel System Compatible with other major infant car seat brands, including Graco, Chicco, and Peg Perego, when used with BRITAX infant car seat adapter (sold separately)
Lightweight aluminum frame (16.5 lbs total weight)
No re-thread, adjustable, five-point harness and head pad with reflective binding
Infinite seat recline positions
Large under seat storage and additional pocket with zipper
Linked parking brake locks both rear wheels
Three-wheel design provides improved steering and maneuverability
All-Wheel Suspension provides for a smooth ride
Large canopy with ventilation window
Included Accessories: BRITAX CLICK & GO infant car seat receivers
The one issue I’ve always tended to have with infant car-seats is their weight (and I don’t like strapping tiny babies into them, but that’s non-negotiable!). The B-Safe is light weight and has enough padding and support to secure a baby without being bulky or fussy, and installing it either in the stroller or the car is really simple. The straps are very easy to adjust and the five point harness is tangle free. Our B-Safe is ready and sitting at the door to take to the hospital and I’m not dreading bring a baby home in it!

It is also easily compatible with the B-Ready, as I tested out.
Baby wearing has been ultra crucial and important to me since the birth of my second child. I know that this third baby will spend a great deal of time simply snuggled right on me, and I need to make sure that I have a hands-free carrier option for life with two older children as well. This carrier makes it easy to insert and remove the baby, plus it offers seat-extenders for those parents worried about pelvic pressure and hip constraints from “dangling”. You can read my full review HERE.
One-Handed Buckles and Snaps allow you to get your child in and out of the carrier easily
Harness Straps adjust from front of carrier for proper customized fit
Easy-Adjust Waist Belt accommodates 22 inches to 56 inches for the perfect fit
Excess Belt Storage Bands eliminate loose straps

100% Cotton Machine Washable Bib (included) protects carrier from stains
Adjustable Head Support provides head and neck stability for younger infants
Leg Loops reduce the size of leg openings for 8-11 pound infants for secure fit
Secure Harness and Pouch Design ensures that baby will stay securely within the carrier
LeSportSac JOYRICH Medium Weekender: The Non-Diaper Bag
This time around, I have sworn off the traditional diaper bag and gone with a style thats a little less cumbersome, a little more stylish and something that I’d be happy to carry even when I don’t have a baby in tow. LeSportsac bags are known for being lightweight, easy to clean and hip.
Zipped main closure, Front and back pockets with zipped closures, Two side pockets with zipped closures, Adjustable/detachable shoulder strap, Joyrich triangle logo plate detail, Joyrich embossed coin charm.
LeSportsac offeres a full line of baby travel items as well (many accessories that I will use in all kinds of different bags and purses.
I’m thrilled to be able to give away one Britax B-Agile, one Britax B-Safe, and one Britax Baby Carrier!
