When we registered for Lyla, she clearly wasn't here yet. "Oh, I'll worry about figuring out her convertible car seat (needed after about 1 year) later," I told myself. "The infant stroller I got (the UppaBaby) will be FINE for everything we need down the line. Right!?"
Wrong. so so wrong.
As I started researching the THREE (count them, three) convertible car seats that we will need to get for her (LB for drop off, my car for pick up, and one for Mimi during the day... hello, about $1,000), I was also researching what stroller to bring to Hawaii this fall. Turns out, the UppaBaby is heavy. I mean super heavy. It's great for adding the extra seat for older babies and for longer mall treks and such. But hefting that thing around the airports and the beach? No way.
So we started looking for an umbrella/lightweight stroller for the trip. And my brain exploded. Too much information. Nothing straight forward. So I put it off and put it off. And then, bam! BABY CUBBY reached out to me and said, "Treana. We saw your brain explosion on the side of your computer (gross) and so we made you this super in depth stroller guide."*
"THERE ARE CHARTS. IT IS SIMPLE. YOU MADE THIS for ME!?" I replied. They then kindly explained to me that they didn't just make the guide for me, but for me and my peeps (and the rest of the internet, I guess). While feeling slightly less special, I couldn't say thank you enough. I then stopped researching. That's right, me. I stopped researching. THEY HAD DONE IT FOR ME!
I went through the guide, found the stroller that I wanted, and bam: free shipping and on its way. No more transferring the heavy stroller back to our house from Sam's for the weekends and no airport schlepping of the heavy one. YES!
Here is what I have found about Baby Cubby. They are not just another baby store. I mean it. The short time I have spent on their site has shown me that whenever I engage with their team, whether it be on their website at babycubby.com, through social media, or the Cubby Community Blog, I feel the difference knowing they are there not just to sell me "stuff" but to be a resource for me through the craziness that is parenting.
What Makes Them Different
Here is what they say about what makes them rad... But I will jump the gun and say that their site is so much more personalized than amazon and I do feel like they have sourced the best information out there for moms.

I encourage all of you parents and parents to be to check them out... before you buy that first stroller. Cause maybe you won't lose your brain in a brain explosion if you start there. :) Oh, and I'll be back with a review on the shipping process, the stroller itself, and how I am tackling this whole convertible car seat thing...
WAIT. THERE IS A GUIDE FOR BUYING CAR SEATS TOO!? Brain = put back together.
