My Best Ever Baby Gift

Monday, December 05, 2011 Posted by Dina N

When I was expecting my first child, I was a tad overwhelmed by the sheer number and variety of baby products out there. Onesies, blankets, diapers, bouncers, bibs, swings, activity mats, toys, cribs, bottles, books... There were so many products, so many choices. Some of these choices were easy, others seemed to be a matter of life or death. As many first-time moms, I was the fortunate guest of honor at several baby showers. We received many fantastic gifts that came in very handy during the first months of parenthood.

The one gift that we used for the longest time was the baby stroller. We had a Combi and we put some serious mileage on it over the years. My firstborn loved that stroller. She would fall asleep in it within 10 minutes flat - and if you ever took care of an infant, you'd understand how thankful we were for that. I walked, I shopped, I sat on park benches reading books or chatting to friends. She slept, she snacked, she watched the world go by. A win-win. And when baby #2 came along, that stroller was the gift that kept on giving.

Now I always tell my expectant friends to choose their baby strollers wisely. Chances are, the kid will be spending lots of time in one, so make sure everyone enjoys the ride.
