Hauck Freerider (Preparing For Baby Guide)

Is it just me or does it seem like when you are pregnant or when you have a baby, you realize that there are a lot of others in the same boat? This past year it seemed that everywhere I looked there was someone who just had a baby or who was pregnant. My Facebook has and continues to be flooded with new babies and pregnant mamas, which I just love! I love looking at baby pictures and watching those adorable little babies grow, I also love hearing the news of a new baby on the way and hearing about others pregnancy journeys! Well, my family is not that big as far as cousins and such go, but with my husband, he grew up in a house with 9 kids, 7 boys and 2 girls, and quite a bit of cousins as well. So, this past year he had a cousin who had a baby, then while I was pregnant, my sister in law was as well. She had her baby at the beginning of the summer, so I was able to follow her pregnancy while I was in the early stages of mine, then once she had our nephew, I was able to continue to watch that adorable little man grow. That being said, I have loved sharing all of the baby items that are must haves, and get the opinions of other mamas of what they have thought about those must have items for baby as well! My sister in law has two little ones. She has the new baby and a little girl who is about 3 now, so when it came to her search for a stroller that would be a great fit for their growing family, she knew that having a double stroller would be a must have for her. She is a very active mama, and loves taking her babies out and about with her when she goes on about her days off.

So, when I had asked her what a mom with one, soon to be two small children in the house, sees to be a must have when preparing for a new baby, she naturally told me that a double stroller that was light weight and easy to maneuver was a ideal fit. When I thought about it, it was a no brainer, she is so right. In order to function and get things done with two small kids when you are out and about, you have to have that double stroller. Then to have that double stroller be easy to take in and out of a vehicle, be lightweight and be easy to steer, well that is a hands down. So when I was given the chance to review the Hauck Freerider for the Preparing For Baby Guide on Mommy Katie, I knew that this stroller would be a perfect fit for her home and that she would be the perfect candidate for assisting me with the review! I was so right, she was shocked at how lightweight this stroller is, and she also loved that even though it is a double stroller, it is not a bulky monster of a stroller. In fact, it is not much bigger than a single stroller, so it does not take up much more room that your average stroller, and a feature that she loved and I will quote her, “It rides as smooth as a brand new car!” I personally have loved all of the items I have from the Hauck and Icoo family, and knowing that my sister in law is also very satisfied with another great product from the Hauck line, I was very pleased. So there you go. If you are preparing for baby, or are in the market for a double stroller that is lightweight, not bulky, and easy to maneuver, then you need to take a look at the Hauck Freerider!!

    A Double stroller would have made life much easier with two little ones.
