“My stroller was a lifesaver and sanity saver to put my son in his car seat and get him in the stroller and walk him so he would nap.” -@jacksonzmom
“There’s no way I could do without her stroller/car seat combo. It’s mobile so I can take her with me throughout the house as I clean, cook, and even shower. And she likes napping in it so again, I can take her with me in each room to get things done. And, if I have to leave in a hurry, she’s already in her seat.” -@morganmommy79
