It seems like there are a million and one things to prepare for when expecting. A stroller is among those many purchase decisions. There are a variety of strollers to meet almost every need, with a vast amount of accessories, from brake systems to cup holders. The stroller market grows very confusing, in very little time.

Here, we list ten reviews of the most popular strollers.

    1. 4Moms Origami Stroller

    The Good:

    This stroller is an absolute must-have for the tech mom on the go. This stroller opens and folds at the touch of a button, making it both extremely easy to store and fully ready-to-roll. The stroller seat has sensors to detect the baby’s weight, so there is no accidental or unexpected folding. The LCD screen reports your pushing spend, the distance you’ve walked, and the temperature. Charge your cell phone with this self-charging stroller. It also has lights to keep mom and baby highly visible while on the go. There is plenty of storage space for baby’s essentials.

    The Drawback:

    Lots of bells and whistles here, but they all come at a very high cost. Price: $850.00

      2. BOB Revolution SE

      The Good:

      This stroller is ideal for those seeking to regain their physique, post-baby. This stroller set a world record in a marathon, rolling strong for over two hours. The Revolution SE easily steers with one hand, has a front swivel wheel, and is ruggedly durable. The swivel wheel makes maneuvering on all-terrain, or through crowds, a breeze. The stroller is available in orange, navy, black, or plum. There’s plenty of storage space to stow all of the baby’s needs while on the go. The canopy is see-through so mom can keep an eye on the baby, while still offering full protection from the sun. The stroller is priced at $350, but can serve as a practical investment for a mom always on-the-go.

        3. Quinny Zapp

        The Good:

        This is a definite on-the-go stroller. It’s umbrella-like design makes it easy to store. Consider lay-away if the $170 price tag is a bit much to shell out all at once. One of the great aspects of this stroller is that it’s compatible with the Maxi Cosi Micro Infant Car Seat, making for a complete infant travel system for around $400. A travel bag and rain shield are included. The stroller is ultra-compact. The four wheels make it easy to move this stroll about. It’s also very lightweight–a bonus every mom will love.

        The Drawback:

        The stroller itself does not have a lot of storage for baby’s things.

        Red Strollers

          4. Liteway Plus

          The Good:

          The Liteway Plus accommodates the Key Fit infant car seat. It grows with the child and can accommodate a toddler up to forty pounds. This umbrella-style stroller comes in a variety of colors. The seat fully reclines to a flat carrier-stroller as the baby contentedly sleeps. This stroller is priced right and can easily be put on a lay-away plan and paid for in plenty of time before the baby’s arrival. It comes with a sun visor, which keeps the rain safely away from the baby. The fabric is very durable and breathable, and meant to last for many years. Though not generous, there is a small amount of storage space.

          The Drawback:

          The Lifeway Plus is somewhat clumsy to store.

            5. Jeep Cherokee Sport Stroller

            The Good:

It’s surprisingly lightweight and has plenty of storage space. The stroller is easy to maneuver through crowded spaces, such as, airports or malls. There is a three-point safety harness to keep a busy, wiggly toddler safely confined to the stroller. As with any stroller it may be converted to accommodate an infant car seat, for an extra cost. There are a variety of fabric colors to choose from, including a gender-neutral green. The stroller comes with a visor to protect against sun and rain.

            The Drawback:

            Accessories, such as a rain shield or hooks to hang necessities, cost extra.

              The Good:

              This stroller is an all-in-one travel system. The system includes stroller, car seat, and the base for a vehicle. Easily snap the infant car carrier to the stroller and roll away.

                  8. UPPAbaby G-LiTE

                  The Good:

                  The UPPAbaby G-LiTE is the lightest stroller on the market weighing in at just over eight pounds. It comes in a variety of colors. This stroller has no travel system, which may be a drawback for some. However, consider this a back-up over a bulkier travel or jogging stroller. It folds quickly and offers a smooth ride for baby. There’s a five-strap harness for the baby’s safety. A removable cup holder is included and there is plenty of storage space to accommodate the baby’s needs.

                  The Drawback:

                  There’s not enough value for the $150 price tag.

                    9. Mamas and Papas Armadillo

                    The Good:

                    This stroller comes in a variety of colors, including a rainbow-hue. It adjusts to baby’s comfort, including an adjustable leg rest.

                    The Drawback:

                    The travel system is sold separately, which increases the $280 price.

                      10. The Dot Buggy

                      The Good:

                      Sometimes a bundle of joy comes in pairs, or you may just need to transport two little ones at the same time. The Dot Buggy is up to the task. The great thing about this product is that a second seat, similar to a motorcycle sidecar, can be attached and detached. It folds easily for storage and can be converted, with a kit, to an infant car seat carrier. A snug baby carrycot can also be added to the stroller to allow baby to lie comfortably flat. The weight capacity is forty-four pounds. The stroller includes a hood to protect the baby’s sensitive skin from the sun.

                      The Drawback:

                      Add-ons, such as car seat and the carrycot, can make this a pricey system.

                      How to Overcome Boredom

                      How to Overcome Boredom

                      Have you ever been bored? Restless? Fidgety? In need of some inspiration?

                      I have a theory on boredom. I believe that the rate of boredom has increased alongside the pace of technology.

                      If you think about it, technology has provided us with mobile phones, laptops, Ipads, device after device – all to ultimately fix one problem: boredom.

                      What is Boredom?

                      We have become a global nation that feeds on entertainment. We associate ‘living’ with ‘doing’. People now do not know how to sit still, and we feel guilty when we are not doing anything. Today, inactivity has become the ultimate sin.

                      You might not realize it, but boredom stimulates a form of anxiety and stress. It evokes an emotional state that creates frustration and feeds procrastination.

                      Advertising

                      It’s a desire to be ‘doing something’ or to be ‘entertained’ – it’s a desire for sensory stimulation. What it boils down to is a lack of focus.

                      If you think about those times when you’re bored, it’s usually because you did not know what to do. So, indecision also plays a big part.

                      When we are focused on what’s important to us and what we want to achieve, it’s pretty hard to be bored. So, one answer to boredom is to become focused on what you want.

                      Sometimes It’s Good to Be Bored

                      If boredom is a desire for sensory stimulation – then what’s the opposite of that? To be content with no stimulation – in other words – to enjoy stillness.

                      Sometimes, it’s not boredom itself that causes the frustration but the resistance to doing nothing.

                      Advertising

                      Think about it. What would happen if you were to ‘let go’ of the desire to be entertained? You wouldn’t be bored anymore, and you will feel more relaxed!

                      In my experience, it’s often the most obvious, simplistic solutions that are the most powerful in life. So, when you’re bored, the easiest way to combat this is to enjoy it.

                      It may sound weird but think of ‘boredom’ as a form of ‘relaxation’. It’s a break from the constant stimulation that 21st-century living provides – constant TVs, mobile phones, radios, internet, emails, phone calls, etc.

                      Who knows, maybe ‘boredom’ is actually good for us?

                      Next time you’re ‘feeling bored’ instead of feeding the frustration by frantically looking for something to do, maybe you can sit back, relax, and savor the feeling of having nothing to do.

                      In this article, I’ll share with you my 3-step strategy on how to overcome boredom.

                      3-Step Strategy to Overcome Boredom

                      1. Get Focused

                      Instead of chasing sensory stimulation at random, focus on what’s really important to you. Focusing on something important helps prevent boredom because it forces you to utilize your time productively.

                      You should ask yourself: what would make good use of your time? What could you be doing that would contribute to your major goals in life?

                      Here are a few ideas:

                      • Spend some time in quiet contemplation considering what’s important to you.
                      • Start that creative project you’ve been talking about for the last few weeks.
                      • Brainstorm: think of some ideas for new innovative products or businesses.

                      2. Kill Procrastination

                      Boredom is useful in some ways because it gives you the energy and time to do things. It is only a problem if you let it. But if you use it to motivate yourself to be productive, then you can more easily overcome boredom.

                      Advertising

                      So, the next time you’re bored, why not put this good energy to use by ticking off those things that you have been meaning to get done but have been too busy to finish? This also presents a great time for you to clear your to-do list.

                      Here are some ideas:

                      • Do some exercise.
                      • Read a book.
                      • Learn something new.
                      • Call a friend.
                      • Get creative (draw, paint, sculpt, create music, write).
                      • Do a spring cleaning.
                      • Wash the car.
                      • Renovate the house.
                      • Re-arrange the furniture.
                      • Write your shopping list.
                      • Water the plants.
                      • Walk the dog.
                      • Sort out your mail & email.
                      • De-clutter (clear out that wardrobe).

                      3. Enjoy Boredom

                      If none of the above solutions work, then you can try a different approach. Don’t give in to boredom and instead choose to enjoy it. This doesn’t mean allowing yourself to waste your time being bored. Instead, think of it as your time to relax and re-energize, which will help you be more productive the next time you work.

                      Contrary to popular belief, we don’t need to be constantly doing things to be productive. In fact, research has shown that people are more productive when they take periods of rest to recharge.[1] Taking breaks once in a while helps boost your performance and can help make you feel more motivated.

                      So, take some time to relax. You never know, you might even like it.

                      Final Thoughts

                      Learning how to overcome boredom may be difficult at the beginning, but it can be easier if you make use of some techniques. You can start with my 3-step strategy on how to overcome boredom and work your way from there. So, ready your mind and make use of these tips, and you will be overcoming boredom in no time.
