Baby Gear Questions

Hi beautiful mommies and soon to be mommies! We still have some "big" baby gear to purchase after our showers, namely car seat and stroller. We both have relatively "smallish" cars so nothing clunky or heavy. Our neighbor keeps lobbying us to get Peg Perego but boy are they expensive! I could probably hunt down a deal on the 'net if there is concensus that they are the best but I am looking for more input. We are planning to breastfeed and I am aware that that does not always happen as easily as a woman thinks. Can you help me plan...

Graco Snug Ride

I took your advice and bought a Graco Snug Ride infant car seat. We LOVE it and appreciate all the recommendations. Our previous car seat fit on the top of shopping carts (where you'd put your purse), but this does not. Those of you who own one, what is the easiest way to go grocery shopping w/ your baby? I ended up putting the whole car seat in the basket and then there isn't room for groceries. I thought of buying the frame/stoller, but then I'd be pushing two carts. Is it best just to shop w/o baby?

Graco Infant Car Seat - Material Is SO Hot?

My husband and I received a Graco car seat and stroller as a Christmas gift for our son who was born in March. We love the style and color but we had no idea we would have issues with the material on the carseat. When my three month old baby is sitting in it, he gets so hot. I read on other website that others who have this same carseat are experiencing the same thing. I'm guessing the material doesn't breathe and the hot Texas weather doesn't help matters. I'm not sure what to do - I know it's too late to make an exchange at the store...

Seeking Info on Where to Buy Baby Bedding and Strollers

Hello-I am the mom of a 2 yr old son and a soon to be arriving daughter. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on a good double stroller. We are in the market to buy and there are so many options I don't know where to start. Also I am also in the process of furnishing the baby's room and fell head over heels over some Pottery Barn bedding until I learned it is all sold out! I am wondering if anyone is aware of any 'baby boutiques' in the Naperville area that would sell crib bedding, accessories, etc. I wouldn't mind driving to the...

Safety of Long Term Play Yard Use?!

My now 3 year old slept in a Graco Pack N Play until she was 1 1/2 and old enough to sleep in a toddler bed. It was kind of old so I purchased a much newer Evenflo version for my new baby, who has also slept in it for 1 1/2 years and is ready to move to a new bed. It is now squeaky and possibly unsafe so I am looking for a new one for my baby due in February. So my question is this: my sister is horrified that I have done this for two babies and want to do it with my third. She said that Oprah (meaning her quotes from the news or...

Anyone with the Graco Snug Ride Infant Seat?

I saw the consumer report on infant car seats. I know they ended up retracting the story but I still was impressed with the rating of Graco snug ride. I was wondering if anyone who has this seat can let me know how they like it. I also read that it is not the easiest seat to operate. Has anyone had problems with it?

I dont have mucht time to drive far as I'm moving out of the US next week and have a huuuuuuuge to do list but I need this stroller to take my 2,5 year and 5 week old overseas. Thanks much M.
