Now that Eloise is six weeks old, I thought I might write a little update on our stroller (plus car seat) and let you know how they've fared (I'll write more on the actual car seat later)! I'm happy to say that overall, I've been quite pleased!
We've actually ended up using the stroller more than I thought we would, so I'm so glad we chose something lightweight and practical! Right now, the actual seat is off and we simply use the frame with the car seat (above). I keep it in my trunk (it doesn't take up much space) and just pop it out, click her on and we're on our way. It took me a few times to get everything down, but now it feels super quick and easy. To open the stroller, you simply pull up on the tabs (under the handles) and lock it using your foot. Then you line up the correct part of her car seat until it clicks. Which is really nice, especially when your dog runs out the front door and you have to get the stroller set up fast enough to chase him. Yeah, that happened. I also still love the handle shape and simple lines. And the height of the handles and the fact that Eloise is so high up and easy to see. The only downside is that I can't say it's the smoothest ride since it's so lightweight. Some of our sidewalks are pretty bad and it can be a little hard to get over all the bumps. But I can deal with that for all its other perks.
