Moms Who Travel with Style

In honor of Mother’s Day, CNT chatted with bloggers, photographers, and moms Mimi Thorisson of Manger, Emily Harteau of Our Open Road, and Elise Hanna about their travel essentials, their favorite trips, and where they’re going next. This is an excerpt from the original. Read the entire article via link at bottom.

WHAT ACCESSORIES DO YOU ALWAYS TRAVEL WITH?

Emily: Raen sunglasses for me, Ergo pack, Bumbleride Flite stroller for airports and if we are going anywhere with sidewalks, and Ultra Violet Kids clothes so the girls look great.

Mimi: My sunglasses, a brand-new notebook, and music to listen to. Also a Nuxe travel-size pouch; it contains all the essential products when traveling (you can get them in French pharmacies).

Elise: My camera, one or two good versatile cotton scarves (which can be used for anything from a picnic blanket to a baby-changing pad, head covering or skirt), my iPhone, and a journal or simple notebook.

Babycenter – 11 Luxe Strollers That Are Really Worth It – Indie 4

Bumbleride Indie 4 Best All-Terrain Stroller BabyCenter

11 Luxe Strollers That Are Really Worth It

In life, there are things you want and things you need. Strollers straddle that line. You need one, that’s for sure, especially if you’re a city dweller.

But if you’re going to be pushing something around day in and day out for several years, you want it to be as easy on the eyes as it is to maneuver. You want a thing of beauty and luxury, not just utility. That’s where these 11 standouts come in. Consider them the SUVs of strollers: multifunctional and a bit showy but for many families, the perfect marriage of want and need.

“The Bumbleride Indie 4 Urban All Terrain Stroller with Bassinet can cruise over any bump with barely a jolt, thanks to air-filled tires and all-wheel suspension. It’s got a cushy seat and an adjustable handlebar, backrest, and footrest — so both baby and parent are comfy; $600.” -Liz Krieger

Lucie’s List- Best All Terrain Double Stroller – Indie Twin Review

Best All Terrain Double Stroller – Indie Twin Review

“The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a cult favorite.

The four GIANT air-filled tires make it feel like you’re pushing a cloud (one-handed, even), which is a difficult claim to make for a double side-by-side stroller of this bulk. Speaking of size, this stroller is 29.5” wide, which will get through a standard door frame (but not with the cup holder on the side, oops!)….

Both seats recline independently and nearly flat, so you can use it from birth, even without a car seat or bassinet. The seats have adjustable leg rests, which are especially great for infants, and the total weight capacity is 90 lbs, or 45 lbs in each seat.

Bottom line: The Bumbleride Indie Twin is a favorite among twin parents and parents of two, especially those needing the giant tires that can plow through anything. While it’s not great for jogging and requires some muscle to fold, this stroller tops the charts for beauty, storage capacity, suspension, ease of pushing, and usability. Let’s not forget Bumbleride’s excellent customer service. Hurrah!” -Meg Collins. Read the entire in-depth Indie Twin review at http://www.lucieslist.com/best-all-terrain-double-strollers/ .

Best Double Stroller 2015 Indie Twin The Bump Best of Baby

Great news! The Bumbleride Indie Twin has been chosen the Best Double stroller by the Editors of TheBump.com in their Best of Baby 2015 Awards!

Best Double

“A twin stroller doesn’t have to be the size of a Hummer to do double-duty. Case in point: the Bumbleride Indie is narrow enough to navigate the grocery store aisle, but doesn’t sacrifice seating room or cargo space.

What we love:
–   The 12-inch wheels are made to handle any terrain” – The Bump Editors

Cool Mom Picks – Best affordable jogging stroller? Reader Q + A

January 5th, 2015



Best jogging stroller: Bumbleride Indie Stroller

Cool Mom Picks – Best affordable jogging stroller? Reader Q + A

Q: Hi Cool Mom Picks! Any recommendations on the best affordable jogging stroller that’s ideally lightweight, compact and versatile? -Pamela J.

A: Hi Pamela,

Though I will admit right off the bat that I am not a jogger, I have reviewed my share of jogging strollers and I have a few recommendations for the best ones that ought to give you a good start when looking. There’s one catch, though: Affordable and jogging stroller usually aren’t two phrases seen together. The best jogging strollers are definitely the priciest options, but they’re also the ones that last, which means you should have no trouble finding gently used options for much less on Craigslist, at a local garage sale, or as a hand-me-down from a friend in your community with older kids. Plus, if you find a jogging stroller you love, there’s no reason you can’t use it as your everyday stroller too, which will make the investment much easier to justify in the long run. (Heh. Long run.)

Whenever I ask my die-hard runner friends which stroller has been invaluable to them through their running-with-a-baby days, they always suggest the same few options…

Bumbleride Indie

“If looks matter to you, Bumbleride wins the prize for coolest looking stroller in the bunch. The Bumbleride Indie is a perfect do-everything stroller system that can truly be the only stroller you ever need to own. It lets you stroll or jog, all while keeping the baby extremely comfy with a surprisingly smooth ride in the sturdy frame.”

Mom’s Stroller Reviews – Bumbleride Indie 4 Stroller Review – Featuring Indie 4 vs. Indie Comparison

Bumbleride Indie 4 Stroller Review

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know how much I love the Indie model. That is why I was so exited about release of the Indie 4. Some parents want to have four wheels instead of three because they feel that four wheels provide better stability. I think it’s matter of preference. In my opinion, four wheels ARE more stable and easier to navigate in tight spaces, but they weigh more and take up more space in your trunk.  So you have to see what’s more important for you the weight or the stability. Here is my full review of Indie model.

The Indie 4 model is designed for everyday use like going to the mall, running errands, walks at the park or a beach. It’s NOT a jogger unlike the Indie model, but has all-terrain wheels and comes with a matching BASSINET so you can use it from birth. I think Bumbleride is trying to create serious competition for popular UPPABaby Vista model which also has all-terrain tires and comes with a matching bassinet. You can also convert Indie 4 to a travel system by using included universal car seat adapter.

I was happy to see that Indie 4 has some of the same features as Indie like oversized canopy, adjustable leg rest, deep recline, nicely padded roomy seat, adjustable handle bar, 5-point harness, huge basket, storage pocket, and easy fold. The seat has a deep recline and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. This buggy weighs 22 lbs which is 2 lbs more than Indie model. The extra weight comes as a result of an extra wheel.

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars because just like Indie model it has a lot of luxury features that parents are looking for. For me, the most important things are large all-terrain air-filled tires, all-wheel suspension, deep recline and huge canopy. I would like to see an automatic lock that actually works automatically so you don’t have to jump on top of the stroller to engage it. LOL. Other than that it’s a great stroller. It retails for around $599 on Amazon (free shipping/free returns and no sales tax) and comes with a bassinet, universal car seat adapter, cup holder and bumper bar.

A Sweet Ride

Point Loma couple builds a stroller company for the urban active mom

As they say, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in the baby carriage. For San Diegans Matt and Emily Reichardt, this playground rhyme is not only true, it’s also a business plan.

In 2004, they started Bumbleride, a Little Italy-based company that makes stylish strollers for the savvy, athletic mom. All terrain tires, lightweight airplane-grade aluminum framing, and sleek designs make them hip, but not flashy. Consumers are comparing them to top-of-the-line brands like Bugaboo and BOB.

The Reichardts have known each other since they were kids in Point Loma. Both graduated from Point Loma High School. They later married, and while Emily was pregnant with their first child, they got an idea….

“For days crammed full of diverse metropolitan happenings—hitting the park, running errands, and zipping to playdates—the new Indie 4 (which comes with a bassinet included), is a perfect pick. Compact and lightweight, yet designed with rugged pneumatic tires and all-wheel suspension to handle any terrain, the Indie 4 handles both urban and off-road locales with ease.
