Be Eco On The Go (With Three Kids In Tow)

Be Eco On The Go (With 3 Kids In Tow) 

Hi, I’m Jill.  

Wife to a banker by day and surfer when the waves are good. Mama to Brooklyn (almost 4), Max (almost 2), and Baby Boy #3 (due November 2016). Global traveler, dog lover and eco-conscious Marketer at Bumbleride.

I love this company and everything the brand stands for. Bumbleride has enabled me to feel fulfilled in my career, while continuing to nurture myself, my family, friends and keep up with my crazy toddlers. I know that motherhood isn’t perfect (and is messy), but I’m doing my best to find balance, inspiration and continue to live eco-consciously in all areas of my life. Which means I’m constantly looking for things and brands that can meet eco standards, keep life simple and convenient.

I’m always looking for inspiration. Here are a few things I tell myself on a daily basis to keep a positive and peaceful mindset:

            -At the end of a long day, I am the only one who can give my kids a happy mama who loves life.

            -Kids make life the best kind of busy.

            -The days are long, but the years are short. Keep on keepin’ on mama.  Life is good.

I’ve spent a lot of time researching baby and toddler gear over the past 5 years (and feel especially close to it given the industry I work in). Here are my must-haves for conscious mamas looking for convenience and style.  I hope this helps eliminate your research time so you can focus on the more important stuff (like yourself and your kiddos). Thanks for reading!

– Jill, Bumbleride Marketing

Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller + Mini Board

…and I think life with 2 kids is wild. Cue November 2016 when we’re adding a 3rd in ~4 years.  Indie Twin has been my saving grace with 2 – I’ve used it almost every day since giving birth to my son Max and it will continue to be my go-to for years to come!  That feeling of ease (and reaction of onlookers) when we seamlessly cruise through a door with a side by side stroller.  The individual seats that can be positioned for whatever situation one of them needs; up, down, feet up, feet down, sunshade extension out, asleep, awake…accommodation makes life much more simple!  Knowing my kids are spending so much time in an eco-friendly place, is one less worry I have – there are 52 recycled plastic water bottles in the fabric of this stroller, plus they are Bluesign and OEKO-tex certified.  With adding a third, all I need is my toddler Mini Board for whoever wants to ride along, and the bassinet.  Perfect spot for comfy naps on the go.  The best bassinet news is it’s now approved for overnight sleeping with it’s 100% rPET fabric and safe, breathable mattress. Even better: no polyurethane foam, fire retardants, phthlatates or PVC used.  Rest-assured, we are set.

clek

Clek Foonf Car Seat

We are realizing that the world was built for a family of 4.  Luckily we already have a car with a 3rd row option, but didn’t think it was possible to put 3 kids safely in a single row – thanks to Clek, we will be riding safely (love their green materials) and much more easily in one single row.  The icing on the cake (or cream in my coffee) is I won’t need to use my back seat for kids.  I can use that space for groceries, my Indie Twin and all the other essentials for life on the go.

backpack

Fawn & Cub Ruckus Diaper Backpack + Changing Mat combo 

Never been the diaper bag type – always carried my oversized leather tote with enough room for everything I need.  With 3 kids, I think I’m going to need both hands and shoulders and all the help I can get in the convenience department.  I was googling “Non-Diaper Bag Diaper Bags” and came across Fawn & Cub.  SWOON.  I saw their Ruckus Sack backpack and was instantly ready to purchase.  The line that had me was “it feels like you are carrying a pillow on your back.” DONE.  So many great features; organic cotton lining, multiple pockets, magnetic snaps, et al.  This has convenience, style and non-diaper bag written all over it.

moses

Plum and Sparrow Moses Basket

Not sure there is anything more precious than a new baby in a basket.  These moses baskets are worthy of every penny and photo captured with your baby inside.  Complete with a hypo-allergenic, waterproof pad inside, I see myself taking this baby (pun-intended) with us everywhere.  To the park, to the beach, in the backyard.  Can’t wait to snap photos of our little buddy in there.

Solly Baby Wrap

I’m sure you’re all in the know on this front.  If you aren’t, get on it!  Baby wearing has been so important to me with all my babies.  There is nothing like that close, skin-to-skin connection – all with both hands free to do whatever it is on your agenda.  I love to support small business and the gals at Solly are seriously awe-inspiring.  These gorgeous wraps are Made in America with Lenzing Modal fabric that is sourced from the pulp of Austrian Beechwood trees.  There’s more…$1 from every wrap purchased helps give a mother around the world a safe birth.  I’m all in.

1black

Plain Jane 24 Hour Dress

Literally.  You can wear it 24 hours a day and be stylish in total comfort.  And nurse your babe without unbuttoning or showing your belly or stretching out the top of your shirt.  I got the all black, because mama knows how messy life can get with 2 kids with dirty fingers touching and grabbing you all day.  This dress is made of the same material as the Solly wrap, so you’re basically wrapping yourself in eco-friendly comfort.

K09BBMF-BS Klean5oz

Klean Kanteen 5oz and 9oz baby bottles

My favorite Kanteen brought a baby bottle into the family.  YES.  Non-toxic, check. Easy cleaning, check. Easy filling, check.  Sign. Me. Up.  There are 2 sizes (5oz and 9oz), so you can have your baby start a bottle from birth or as soon as you’re ready.

Tubby Todd $75 shop credit

We always laugh that we have enough Tubby Todd to keep the whole neighborhood clean and smelling fresh for a year.  Read: I don’t want to run out.  They also just launched their MAMA line and it’s so good.  Belly balm, hand lotion, nipple salve.  Something for every mama.  It’s that good.

U02-0907C_01_grande

Finn + Emma Organic wooden teether

Finn + Emma is the most amazing small business.  Everything they support, I believe in.  Sustainability, fair trade, organic materials, smart + ethical choices.  Everything they sell, I would have in my house.  But, consumerism is a thing and I don’t need it all with having hand-me-downs from my two other kids and family/friends that think just like me.  But the whimsical little organic hedgehog teething rattle is a necessity and multipurpose and I can’t wait for little buddy to have it.

hippy-yellow

Lorena Canals Rugs eco-friendly rug

An eco-friendly and MACHINE WASHABLE rug. Yes, please.  These rugs contain 100% natural cotton and use non-toxic dyes.  My daughter has a dust allergy, so just vacuuming and regular cleaning isn’t enough. These rugs are perfect.  All the kids rooms will eventually have one!

camp green quote _02

burlap

Modern Burlap Tree Hugger Swaddle

Another small business that I love.  But, let’s talk multipurpose. These swaddles are not only perfect for swaddling and getting a baby cozy, I use them for nursing covers, sun coverage, burp cloth, tummy time or even a scarf, if I’m out and about and forget a sweater.  They fold up so small and can be tossed into your bag and WILL BE used on every adventure.  There is a design for anyone, and there’s a reason they’re all black and white patterns…the contrast in color enhances baby’s vision and stimulates brain development.  BONUS: they’re made of GOTS certified organic cotton muslin.

 

So there you are!  I hope this will save you research time so you can get back to making memories with your family…

2016 Color Story

May 24th, 2016

FullSizeRender

Color has always been a big part of who we are. A dominant facet of Bumbleride’s personality. Thirteen years ago when Bumbleride was just a concept, we recognized a void in the industry. Stroller companies were very conservative with textile design and color. Being in our 20’s at the time we didn’t want to play things so safe. We wanted to have fun and help families celebrate the birth of their babies with vivid color and stylish design. That is still true today.

Each year we enjoy projecting what colors will stand out as something new. Not always monochromatic but also combinations of color with hood linings and details on our strollers to keep things fresh.

Living in San Diego and enjoying the outdoors, nature is always inspiring us. In this years collection, one of our favorites is Tourmaline. A soothing blue green that mimics the colors of the ocean. Another addition that we had fun designing is Camp Green. A limited design for 2016 reminding us of trips with our kids to the mountains. We combined an olive green with tan lining and orange cording. Plus our Camp Bumbleride patch evokes adventure and getting outside.

inspo-collage_600_clean

While some colors we choose are bold, we still love the palette of grounded colors with bright accents. When selecting colors we give a lot of attention to the right hue, even when choosing a black or grey. We lean towards saturated rich depth in even our staple colors. Trends come and go but the quality of our strollers are designed for longevity. We want every feature to be current and timeless.

Textiles and fabrics for us have definitely evolved. Upon learning of the grim impact that textile production has on our planet we started to dig for changes we could make to improve our processes as much as possible. We are so proud to be using eco-conscious materials now.  It has been a goal for many years and now we bring to the stroller industry 100% RPET (28 post consumer recycled plastic bottles, available in colors: Tourmaline, Camp Green, Red Sand, Maritime Blue & Dawn Grey) and an innovative Solution Dye process that conserves water and energy (available in Silver Black color only).

One of the most fulfilling aspects of every year is seeing the favorite choices of our team and our customers. We look forward to seeing and hearing feedback of everyone’s connection with their personal color choice. Join the conversation @BumblerideWhich is your favorite color? We’d love to hear from you!

Tiny Travels – La Jolla, CA – Chrissy Powers & Isobel Benesch

May 5th, 2016

We’ve partnered with Chrissy Powers and Isobel Benesch from belandbeau.com on a Tiny Travels series starting in La Jolla, CA. Follow their local travels and helpful tips! Enter to win your own Indie in their giveaway here, https://www.instagram.com/p/BE9Qim2Tg5f/?taken-by=chrissyjpowers. Ends 5/9.

“Welcome to Tiny Travels! I’m so excited about this new series because it combines two things I’m very passionate about: motherhood and travel. Before children I traveled all over; traveling opened the world up to me in a way I never knew existed. Relishing in the beauty of new places and cultures is something I want to pass on to my sons. I know traveling and children don’t always go together…I felt landlocked after I had my first son Waylon. However, once I started to put my cares aside (like how I look in public when he melts down…the fear of traffic…etc), I began to have fun no matter how challenging it was. My friend Isobel from belandbeau.com and I bonded over our love for travel and exploring with our boys; it really was only a matter of time before we teamed up.

Our hope is that Tiny Travels inspires you to see the world, explore your backyard, city or town and enjoy new experiences with your children no matter how hectic it may be. “- Chrissy and Isobel

Where They Went:

  • Juice Crafters
  • Tide Pools
  • Cuvier Park
  • The Children’s Pool
  • The Cave Store
  • Sunny Jim’s Cave

La Jolla Travel Tips:

Parking can be tough so find a spot and then bring your stroller/scooter/carrier…. If you walk all the way along the coast from the Tide Pools to the Cave Store it can be a long walk for little ones so make sure to bring snacks.

Places to Eat:

Cuvier Park and Ellen Browning Scripps are great picnic spots along the ocean. If you want to grab a bite to eat in town, we recommend Burger Lounge or Puesta.

Also Check Out:

  • Fly at Kite at Ellen Browning Scripps park
  • Bark at the Sea Lions at La Jolla Cove
  • Museum of Contemporary Art

5 Ways Bumbleride Makes Life Easier For The Active Mom – City Girl Gone Mom

May 5th, 2016

“Lets face it, sticking to a work out schedule can be hard for anyone.  Add four kids, two dogs and a bad back to the mix, and it almost feels impossible.  The larger my world has become, the harder it is to exercise.  However, It’s time I find ways to burn some extra calories now that my seven month old is finally giving me a good night’s rest.

Thanks to Brody’s new ride, Indie by Bumbleride, there’s finally some light at the end of my chaotic tunnel.  I kid you not, the all terrain jogger has momma moving mountains… Okay, maybe not mountains, but I am certainly moving.

LIGHTWEIGHT

Bumbleride’s Indie all terrain jogger has set itself apart from the rest with its compact, lightweight frame.  I can honestly say in the nine years that I have pushing strollers, this jogger has to be the lightest.  It feels like I am pushing air, even on the toughest roads.  It has the smoothest push out of all the strollers I have had.  Dad agrees too.  With Southern California being very hilly, this lightweight jogger has been easy on my back.  I feel minimal pressure where it typically hurts the most when climbing those hills.  The 12 inch air-filled tires are just the right size.  And having all-wheel suspension makes this ride the Porsche of all joggers.

i-GtsrLZ3-X2

MATERIALS MATTER

Even in the midst of a chaotic life, we are no strangers to lessening our carbon footprint on the planet.  We did that by having the first dental practice in San Diego that is certified Green.  I was happy to learn that Bumbleride cares about Mother Earth just like we do.  Their fabrics feature a 100% recycled polyester (rPET recycled post consumer water bottles).  This company is devoted to durability, safety and function, while simultaneously caring about the environment.  As a mom who cares about our planet, I feel great knowing that this is my go-to stroller.  It also gives me another opportunity to chat with my older kids about  why they, too, should care.”

Indie Fold Video


Conclusion

After two weeks with the Indie, I can confidently say that from birth to the toddler years, the Indie is all you need.  I have thoroughly enjoyed this stroller, mainly because we are a very active family, and it was more than compatible with all of our outings. Whether trekking to and from Petco Park, onto the beach, or exercising on rocks and pavement, this is now our go-to stroller.  I like to refer to it as the “perfect Schaffer lifestyle stroller”.  Nine years ago when Jackson was born, we loved the Queen B Pram by Bumbleride.  I am grateful to have had the chance to do this four times now — with my brood and Bumbleride.

Guest Blogpost by Jacqui Saldana of Baby Boy Bakery | Meet Speed, By Bumbleride

April 15th, 2016

Meet Speed, By Bumbleride

Guest Blogpost by Jacqui Saldana

I have teamed up with Bumbleride to help them celebrate the release of a new addition to their stroller line up. The newest set of wheels is a designated running stroller so aptly named Speed. Speed features a thousand cool things, a few of which I have highlighted below. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to hit the pavement with Speed. When I signed up for my  5K last month I was in need of a stroller equipped for running/jogging. I actually reached out to Bumbleride to see if I could test out Speed and was seriously delighted when they agreed! Being a momma of two, I know buying baby gear can be a bit overwhelming. Which is why I wanted to share with you what I loved most about Bumbleride’s Speed. Hopefully this post is coming to you at the right time, or can be passed on to someone who is in the market for a pretty bad ass stroller.

Let me first start this all off by saying I am in no way a professional runner. I’d say I’m more of a professional walker who busts into a jog when a good song comes on through my headphones. I do love a good running stroller, but the Bumbleride Speed sold me more on its lightweight and easy one step fold. Anything that adds ease into my daily life gets a gold star.

My favorites of Speed and a few photos below.

The thing I noticed right away was the smooth push Speed offers. I know what you are thinking! A stroller is a stroller. But really, Speed was designed to take on all terrain which I am guessing is why the push is so soft. I was thrilled about this mostly because Mila is still really tiny. Though we 100% got clearance from her pediatrician on her being able to join me on a jog. I was still worried about her in there. With very little neck control I didn’t want her flopping around. Through out the smooth ride Mila was able to enjoy herself as best a baby can. She slept every. single. time. we used this stroller.

Jog
We were able to adjust the 5 point harness snug to fit her small body. (she currently is 11 pounds 25 inches) And with just one click the straps released and we could pick up Mila from the stroller pretty easily. Easy. Easy. There is theme. I love things that are just simple. 1, 2, done.

IMG_2275

When we first got to see Speed it was at Bumbleride HQ. One of the first things that was shown to us was the handle bar. “Feel the handlebar!” At first I didn’t think much of it. But after using it in my race I found its smooth rubber grip to be extremely helpful. Of course, now I can’t remember what exactly that rubber is called. I do know it is PVC free and the entire handlebar adjusts up or down. Which is SUPER awesome since I’m tall.

IMG_2286

Speed has an oversized sun canopy that offers SPF 45. If it doesn’t cover enough of baby, you can extend it further. I love this photo because one, Mila’s tiny feet kicking out. And two, shortly after this photo was taken Mila spit her pacifier out and it landed on the ground. Dan tried to grab it quick but kicked it and the pacifier fell into the ocean. We both started to laugh, then Mila started to cry so we packed up and left. It was pretty funny.

Lesson learned.

Pack more than one pacifier.

Even though I mentioned my favorite thing about this stroller was its one step fold…I lied. My favorite is actually the bell that comes installed on the side of the handlebar! I rang that puppy 24/7. It came in handy during my race. We also walked to grab ice cream and when the ice cream parlor called out our number for next to order…I rang my bell. I love that thing!

IMG_2254
IMG_2270

Who looks better. Guy who has great running form OR Mom who has terrible running form, but one seriously cool stroller? 😉

In all honesty Speed is pretty great. Aside from what makes it a great stroller it did something more for me. It made me fall back in love with running and working out. I think that is what really makes this a great piece. The comfort and functionality of Speed inspires me to get outside and do something healthy for myself. I kind of loved that Mila was lulled to sleep every time we used this stroller. It allowed me to stay out a bit longer. Work out a bit harder. It isn’t always easy finding baby gear that fits the bill for both mom and baby. I am thrilled to report that this stroller exceeds in all areas. Most importantly in helping mommas have the freedom they need to get out, work out and be the best for their baby!

A truly organic stroller doesn’t exist (yet!), but some manufacturers, like Bumbleride, come pretty close. New for 2016 is Speed, their first-ever jogging stroller. As with all Bumbleride rides, this one features feel-good fabrics that keep plastic bottles out of landfills, dyed in bright, vibrant colors via a process that conserves 25 to 40 gallons of water per stroller.
