Britax B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat Review

I put the Britax B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat in our registry because we had a small car.  The Internet forums recommended this infant car seat to fit small cars. It also had a high safety rating. We used this car seat a few times, but I realized the car seat is on the larger side. The car seat was very long, which probably increases the baby’s safety.  However, we were in an odd situation with a small car that we don’t drive often, so I decided to return it for another car seat. I think this is a great … Continue reading Britax B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat Review

Ergobaby Original Review

I’m writing this post because I thought all Ergobaby carriers supported the front-facing baby. It’s probably written on the product description everywhere, but I think we were in a rush to create a baby shower registry and didn’t realize the difference between the models. I recommend the 360 model for the baby carrier. The original is definitely lighter, but now we have two carriers when could’ve done the job. We always use the 360 model.

Ergobaby 360 Review

If you haven’t read my review on the Ergobaby Original, check it out here. I purchased this baby carrier at Babies R Us going-out-of-business sale because I accidentally purchased the Ergobaby Original the first time. The 360 model allows the baby to face forward after a certain size. Our baby doesn’t really like strollers, so the Ergobaby has been our go-to for outings. Continue reading Ergobaby 360 Review

2017 Cybex Aton Infant Car Seat Review

I initially chose the Britax B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat based on research on car forums. After a week of use, we ended up replacing it with the Cybex Aton, which was slightly smaller and lighter, to better fit into our small car. This car seat worked well for our purposes, but this version has a limited canopy that provides minimal sun protection, and the material was not very comfortable for the baby, although I think it is more comfortable than many other car seats. FYI, Meritt did not like either car seat. If I had the choice again, I … Continue reading 2017 Cybex Aton Infant Car Seat Review

2017 Uppababy G-Lite Stroller Review

We used the Uppababy G-Lite stroller extremely well, and the baby enjoyed it better than our Bugaboo Cameleon3.  I think Meritt liked the mesh back, and he fell asleep many times while riding in it. He’s not really a stroller baby though, so this wasn’t the perfect stroller solution either. This stroller does not have a reclining feature, so I have to tilt the stroller to achieve the recline. This doesn’t bother me usually, but it does become a problem if we have to eat somewhere and the baby is sleeping. It’s been about a year since we used this … Continue reading 2017 Uppababy G-Lite Stroller Review

2018 Audi Q5 Review

I drove the new Q5 as a loaner vehicle for the Q7. It was the newest generation and felt much more techie than our car. I haven’t tried the touchpad looking device, so I’m not sure about all the features. Honestly, the coolest part for me was getting out of the car. The door shines a crispy logo every time you open the door! I’m not sure if this will ever get annoying, but it was a fun experience for the first-time rider. Continue reading 2018 Audi Q5 Review

2015 Audi Q7 Review

The Audi Q7 always amused me, but it was never on my wish list. We were in the market for a larger vehicle because of the baby, who we were hauling in our convertible sports car. I always wanted a minivan for the practicality, but my wife could not get over the uncoolness of a minivan. I had my heart set on the Toyota Sienna, but I had to let that dream go because I didn’t mind driving a SUV. We were deciding among the Lexus RX, Toyota Sequoia, and Cadillac Escalade. Actually, our ideal vehicle was the Range Rover … Continue reading 2015 Audi Q7 Review
