For part of my follow-up on the blog about taxis and carseats I thought I should let you know about one of those products that I feel makes life as a green mama easier. Or, at least, makes life as a car-free green mama easier.
If you have ever tried to take your kid on transit or in the Igo shared car you know what it feels like to be a camel: stroller, carseat, and diaper bag piled high and, somewhere in all of this, the baby.
The Strolex TriplePlay 5-in-1 carseat helps reduce your burden down to the point where you might feel closer to a St. Bernard.
It isn’t the fanciest stroller ever, nor the sturdiest seeming carseat, but Consumer Reports gives it good ratings. They also have very good customer support in my experience.
You’ve probably seen the Strolex, aka the Sit ‘n Stroll, in the airport where lots of parents rely on it as a way to stroll their toddler around the airport, keep the little one secure on the plane, and provide a safe seat in Grandma’s car on the other side. The best thing about it is that you can leave your child in the seat as you convert it back and forth between stroller and booster.
For an urban green mama, it is almost too good to be true.
