One of my favorite things to do with Charlie is run mindless errands around our neighborhood. It makes me feel like a total mom; a feeling that I like to take full advantage of. I love having my little companion join me on things that used to be a nagging task. He flirts with everyone, is always waving and is just so much fun to have by my side. We usually go grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s down the street followed by a latte/donut date at Stan’s on Clark. The best part of my week.
Living in the city with a baby is a blast but most days it can be difficult to maneuver. Luckily we are fortunate to live close enough to everything we could possibly need but I’ve learned to take advantage of products that make being a mom easier. Especially in the winter. Living on the third floor of a walk up never bothers me until it is 10 degrees outside and I have to run an errand with Charlie. It is Chicago winters that made me realize the importance of a good stroller…
It just so happens that we took these photos on a day that it was actually 45 degrees but our Bugaboo Donkey Weekender makes you feel prepared for whatever weather comes your way. As a mom who has gone through 4 strollers (yes, you read that correctly) to find one that actually works for our family and the future of our family – there is no competition. Not only is it stylish but it comes with everything you could possibly need to keep your kiddo safe and dry.
The Donkey Weekender comes with a bassinet for when your baby is fresh from the hospital and also the seat for when you’re ready to transition to a seated position. I love that the seat can be reclined and also positioned very upright (Charlie’s favorite so he can wave to everyone we pass). It also comes with a stylish duffel bag that turns into our diaper bag whenever we are out and about. It carries SO MUCH. You can even detach and use as an overnight bag (which we also do regularly). Having the extra storage, in addition to the basket below, makes runnings errands in the city so much easier. My favorite detail is that the Donkey Weekender can be extended to a double stroller (you can find the extender here) making it ideal for growing families.
Before I became a mom, I didn’t realize the importance of a good stroller. Like I said before, this is my 4th stroller and honestly, it is worth every single penny. I love this limited edition style – the faux leather is so fun and I always receive so many compliments. It definitely makes maneuvering around the city with a toddler much easier.
