Carseat Shopping: Day 1

I got a Babies 'R Us catalog in the mail the other day.  It said that you could bring in any used carseat and get 25% off a new one.  So, turns out it was worth it to hang on to Beau's old infant carrier for eight years! 

Okay, but have you ever had one of those experiences where you go to shop for something, and you really just kind of want to look around on your own, but some crazy salesperson has a different plan for how your shopping experience should go???

Enter crazy Babies 'R Us sales guy. 

Guess what crazy sales guy, even though giving 100% of your attention to collapsing a stroller may be the safest thing to do... I would rather be able to hold my baby and collapse my stroller at the same time.  And while it may comfort you to know that I could lift the Graco SnugRider upside down over my head, and my baby's carseat would not shake loose... I actually don't plan on doing that.  So the Snap 'n Go will do me just fine. 

Your scare tactics will not work on me crazy sales guy.  I have been around the block as a parent before.  I know that practicality almost always wins out.  And having to use both hands to fold a stroller into an origami shape that I may not ever be able to get it out of is not my idea of practical.


  1. Yes! I'm so glad you got the Snap 'n Go! You won't be sorry. It definitely doesn't have all the bells and whistles (and random upside down shaking capabilities!?) of a lot of strollers but it wins on practicality front! Get a super-snazzy, pretty one when baby is sitting up.

  2. i completely agree w Megan!!!! you will not be sorry about the snap and go!!!!!
