Tike Tech CityX3 (Preparing for Baby Guide)

I know that when I am preparing for a new baby, one item that I have to have is a stroller. In fact I tend to have more than one stroller on hand so that I can have one at home at all times for when we go walking from the house, then one in each vehicle. Since we are currently preparing for our own baby, I have been looking at some new strollers that I will be using for the new baby. With my son, I had saved items that I had used with my daughter, so I did not need to go out and find new strollers. After we had our son, we did not think that we would be having any more kids, so I gave away everything I had for my son. That being said, I have had to start over with all of the baby items I will need and the strollers are on the top of my list. The reason for them being so important to me is because I dont just buy the first stroller I come across, I want to get strollers that I can easily use, ones that I can get the adapters for to use with my infant car seats, because like most moms who have just had a new baby, I tend to do a lot of walking after the baby is born to try and shed some of that new baby weight. Recently I was sent an amazing stroller that I can not wait to use when the baby gets here. I was sent the Tike Tech CityX3 in Alpine Red to review. First of all I love how light weight this stroller is. It is so easy to take in and out of my vehicle, which when you are in a hurry with a baby and two kids, easy makes things go so much smoother, and is very important to me. After hauling the kids around at the mall or the park, I want to be able to get everyone in the car, then easily put the stroller up. Which brings me to another huge plus, the one step folding process. I know that the first stroller I had ever used, I ended up just putting the whole thing with out collapsing it, straight into my vehicle because I could not figure out how to fold it up. So after that unpleasant and embarrassing experience, I vowed to only use strollers that I could easily collapse and put up in my vehicle, so I could continue to go with my hurried flow so to say. Well, after checking a stroller for its weight and easy fold capabilities, I check to see how easy it is to steer and get around with. Lets just say that the Tike Tech CityX3 has passed all of my tests. I found that when I tested it at the park, I was very pleased on how easy it was to go from the grass to the walkway and back. I also love how smooth it is. I love that when I go over those little cracks in the sidewalk, the stroller does not bounce around, so when I have the baby in the stroller, I will be able to go for walks with out waking the baby due to a bumpy ride. Another plus that I love on this stroller is the storage. There is a mesh pocket on the back of the seat then you also have the basket underneath the seat. Come Fall when both kids are in school, I will be attending practices and games, and the baby will be with me. When I go to watch my kids, I like to have extra drinks and snacks for the team, on top of the items I will need for the baby, We also tend to spend a lot of our free time at the park when the weather is nice, and I always bring water and snacks along for those outings as well, so the extra storage is a huge plus for any mom!!! One last thing that I am going to tell you about is the fact that you can use this stroller for infants and toddlers, so if you are preparing for a new baby, this stroller will grow with your baby, or if you have a toddler that you are needing to get a new stroller for, then this is the stroller for you!! I know that this stroller will be a new favorite of mine when I go out for walks, to the mall and to the park! In all, if you are in the market for a great new stroller, then you are going to want to check out the Tike Tech CityX3!!!!
