Adoption #2 Info & Stroller Review
I wanted to let you know that our interview with the CPS case worker (for the 10-month old little girl) was re-scheduled for tomorrow at 9:30 AM so if you’re interested in hearing the results of that meeting, check back late morning tomorrow.

Now, on to a totally unrelated topic…

We got a new double stroller this past weekend and we love it! It’s a Combi 2008 Twin Sport 2 (ours is brick red and ember).

Originally we had planned on getting a tandem double stroller, rather than a side-by-side double stroller because we were worried that a side-by-side would be too wide to maneuver around in stores and such. What we found is that the tandem stroller was too long to fit in the trunk of our 2007 Jeep Compass!

The thing that sold us on this Combi stroller is the compact tri-fold feature (it collapses flat and then you can fold it in half from there) and the fact that once it’s folded it’s self-standing. It fits in our Jeep Compass with plenty of room to spare. It may even fit in the trunk of my compact car; I just haven’t tried it yet. Amazingly, our side-by-side stroller fits through all the doorways and aisles of our favorite stores with no problems. And I love how lightweight this stroller is!

Snuggle Bug and Baby Bug seems to find the stroller comfy. We’ve taken them on two long walks so far and neither complained. Actually, Baby Bug gave her endorsement by falling asleep in the stroller on one of those walks.

After searching Babies R Us and not finding what we liked we found this brand at a local specialty baby store here in our city. But I noticed on the Combi website that they’re offering free shipping on all strollers now through 29 February so if you’re interested in one, you can order it online. Check it out!

By the way, I was not solicited to post this product review. I just love our stroller so much that I wanted to share!

THanks for the review. I don't know if we'll get a double stroller or not still.

However, I have pushed some tandem ones of friends and I found them very difficult to maneuver in general, so I bet I would like the side by side better. Plus, then the kids can interact if they want. I can't imagine taking two kids to a store anyhow (I rarely take the one with me anymore, I shop after he goes to bed or on weekends when my husband watches him).

Glad you love your stroller! Whenever I put my daughter in a side by side stroller with my friend's child, they just fight and pull each other's hair! lol

Ooo that is a cute stroller. I just wear the baby and the preschooler walks, but a double stroller is so tempting!

Sending positive vibes for tomorrow!

After having 7 children I have had my share of strollers. The one I bought that I feel in love with in the store with my first child that was designed for someone shorter than me to push. The unmbrella stoller, and the stoller that came with the car seat with baby #4. But when I was expecting baby #7 (she is 6 months) I knew I wanted a double stroller but I knew I wanted one that was lightweight and easy to steer. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the combi double stroller. It is the best stroller I have ever owned. I have a combi car seat that fits in our stroller and I can place baby #7 in her car seat in the stroller and baby #6 (2 1/2 years old) in the stroller and it is so easy to push, even if I need to push one handed it is not as difficult as in any other stroller. I can also push baby #7 and son #5 (he is 4 1/2) in the stoller and it is still easy to push. I can not say enough wonderful things about this stoller!
