@MightySapphire: I have a 4runner and there is plenty of room for groceries, a home depot run and the stroller… but maybe that’s unique to my truck πŸ˜€

Tilly- I was surprised that my family was able to figure out the Amazon registry!!! But they did, somehow.  Little does everyone know that we saved them a ton of money on all the purchased items πŸ™‚

we did not like the travel systems…we got a snugride 32 (though, I think most people would like the basic (22)) better…and the BOB…We might also get a baby trend snap n go for smaller trips or roadtrips, since the BOB is pretty big

@cannotwait: why do you say that people would like the snugride 22 better? Is it becasue of the size/weight of the larger car seat?

I went for the snugride 35 because I’m expecting to pop out a 10+ pound baby (as my mom did x3 and DH’s mom did x2) so I figured a bigger car seat would last longer before we had to break down and buy convertable seats for our cars. I’m not sure how well a convertable seat will fit rear facing in our sedans or DH’s truck, which is extended cab but not a full crew cab.

Has anyone used the Safety 1st On Board Air 35? I’ve dong back and forth between the two seats, but it’s hard to tell if one is really better than the other.

@Sulli301:  So not a dumb question!  Until I saw and handled them, I didn’t really understand how the carseat attached.

All I can speak to is the BOB.  We bought the infant adaptor kit.  You install that (a few bars and straps) to the carseat.  Then it is on there semi permanently (until you don’t need the infant adaptor anymore).  Every time you want to use the stroller, you take the car seat and latch it into the infant adaptor system.  It’s a simple click to pop the car seat in and a simple unlatch and lift to get it out.  Super easy and nothing extra to bring on a day to day basis!

I also highly recommend the book Baby Bargains – it has great info on all the different baby things you need, and don’t need, and great reviews on it all.  The type of stroller you need really depends on your lifestyle – I live in Manhattan and after much research believe that city dwellers do need a great stroller (Bugaboo, Uppa, etc).  BUT if I lived somewhere where I drove and did most of my walking indoors, I would never go for those types of strollers. 

We have a bugaboo (bought used!) and a SnugRide infant car seat that can either attach to the bugaboo or to its own frame (small, lightweight, not great for distances).  Eventually I will likely get a Bob to go running in Central Park, but I will also try to get that used.    We will get a Britax in a year or so but the Infant car seat is great now – not only for the car, but for cabs, travel and sleep! (Ryan sleeps in his car seat)

Registry wise Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us are probably both good.  We registered at Buy Buy Baby and a small chain in the NE called Giggle.

My SIL has a bugaboo and that thing is amazing! I told her she needed to keep it after her baby grows out of it so I can hopefully buy it (discounted) from her!

I second Baby Bargains!  It’s a great guide.

@Sulli301:  Sorry for the delay in response.  Yep, travel systems are available in many brands.  πŸ™‚  I’d stick with either Safety1st, Graco, or Chicco.  They make wonderful systems!
