Many thanks to Baby Jogger for sending me this awesome stroller to try!
Going from one to two children means a lot of things, and chief among them is figuring out a new way to exist out in the world! Especially if the kids are both young (I have two under three at the moment), there is a lot of thought that goes in to all the various “gear” we need. Two of everything! Or at least, a way to accommodate both kids, especially while outside of the house. It’s hard to know which gear will be the best, most convenient or comfiest options for you and your family. And a double stroller is usually at the top of the list of “Musts” when welcoming a new addition. Well, I’m putting my two cents in now, because I have fallen in love with the Baby Jogger city select LUX!
Baby Jogger has been around since the 80’s, and was begun as an answer to the need for an all-terrain, convenient and comfortable stroller option for families that wanted to get out in to the real, rugged world and experience all that life has to offer. They have since refined and perfected their stroller, and this newest city select LUX model is to die for! The best part about it is that it converts seamlessly in to a double stroller, with over 20 configuration and seating options! The seats are all reversible, so that the kids can sit facing out, facing in, facing parents, facing each other– whatever! It’s really a custom experience. There is even a bench option for a bit older children who just want to hitch a ride every now and then (I think we are quickly approaching that age with Marlowe).
When Kyle was putting ours together, he kept commenting from the other room, “Babe, this stroller is so cool! It’s so easy to put together!” and then a few minutes later I just heard a drawn out “Whoaaaa. Cool.” LOL! I can safely say Kyle hasn’t had any personal opinions about a stroller before this. And he’s right. The stroller (pictured in “Granite”) is super compact, easy to throw in the trunk, and really simple to assemble. Plus, we are both super impressed by the all-terrain wheels that don’t require pumped air like some jogging strollers do.
My own favorite features are the easily accessible deceleration break, the fact that the parking break is on the handle instead of the wheels (how many times have you accidentally kicked your stroller’s parking break while walking? Me: a zillion), the extended UV50+ canopies, the five-point safety harnesses (much comfier for the kids than other stroller straps I’ve used), and last but not least the big underneath basket! I really love this stroller, guys.
The idea of leaving the house with the kids can be overwhelming. Recently I’ve been inspired by the city select LUX to do some adventuring in our town and to take advantage of the new summer weather! It makes going out with both the kids much easier than it has in the past. I like to take both kids for a little walk and breakfast in town before dropping Lowie off at school. Then I pop her seat off and make it a one-baby stroller for Major, and he and I get to spend some quality time just the two of us. And Mama gets to buy a second coffee and drink it in (slightly increased) peace. Ha!
When it comes down to it, I’m realizing that as a Mom I really respond to baby products that adjust to OUR lifestyle. I like companies that realize how unique and individual families, parenting styles, and lifestyles are– and are ready to accommodate what makes life easiest for them in that uniqueness. Have you guys tried the Baby Jogger city select LUX? Let me know how you like it in the comments below!
I’m also so curious about how other families have configured their city select LUX– please share in the comments for a chance to win $100!
