We’re super excited that baby boy #2 will be joining us in a couple of months! And we’re also overwhelmed and tired AF… or at least I am.
Since we just loaded up on baby boy stuff a little over a year ago, there wasn’t all that much left that we needed. We wanted some add-ons for our Vista stroller to make it a 2 seater, a bigger car seat, and another Yoyo stroller. These are not inexpensive items by any means, but they’ve come out as our top picks after surviving our first year as parents.
The Uppababy Vista was the first stroller we got and it is great, particularly for a newborn. The bassinet easily pops on and off, as does the Mesa car seat. The large basket makes it perfect for shopping and running errands. And if multiple littles are in your future, the Vista converts to haul 2-3 kiddos!
These are our top picks in the Uppababy line: Uppababy Vista stroller and bassinet | rumble seat | Mesa car seat | bassinet holder and hamper | upper adaptors
The Babyzen Yoyo stroller has been our go-to for traveling and cruising around the city. It is super lightweight but very durable. We took it with us to Czech and were shocked that it held up on all the cobblestone streets! Plus it quickly and easily folds up and slings over your shoulder like a big purse, so you can squeeze onto public transit, put it under your chair at a restaurant, or take it on an airplane. We love the Yoyo so much that we bought a second one for the newbie, and we splurged for the newborn seat pack too! It comes in TONS of colors. We have both the black and the white base, and the grey and “Air France” blue seat packs.

Since the newbie will get the Mesa car seat, it was time for Denton to upgrade. I had a hard time finding a car seat that was easy to use and didn’t take up tons of space. The Nuna Rava was recommended by a friend, and I love it! It’s sleek, easy to install (but heavy), and fits great in my small SUV. Also, it comes with a newborn insert, so you could even use it from Day 1!
Looking forward to strollin’ around with Denton and his little bro come October!
