BRITAX DEBUTS VIBRANT NEW FASHIONS FOR B-AGILE and we are GIVING one of these $249.99 BABY Strollers Away!

Congrats to our winner Olivia!

Back in the STONE AGE ( when I gave birth to my son eight years ago) I don’t remember there being much style, flair or for that matter functionality to baby gear. There were a few brands in the game- and you got which ever seemed to be the easiest way to tote your lil tater tot from point A to point B. There was no sense of excitement, joy or fun about the process or for that matter that stage of parenthood. It was a necessary evil and something you had to get through inorder to get to the next and more doable stage– when your kid could start toddling about and perhaps you would no longer be so dependent on these cumbersome baby gear contraptions. I still remember being on a NYC sidewalk, about to take my son to a doctor and holding him while trying to get his unsightly and impossible to CLOSE carriage secured enough to get up the narrow steps to the office. There I was profusely sweating while my son was wailing and just wanting the earth to swallow me whole.

Well it is now the year 2013 and my son us 8 years old and baby gear- well it is not only one of the hottest retail markets- but products like BRITAX well they actually will make a woman like me- whose ovaries have been in a bit of a deep slumber begin to SCREAM — USE ME! USE ME!

In fact  the BRITAX New B-AGILE stroller is not only an incredible and very necessary piece of baby equipment but it has just unveiled some stunning colors which blend trends with classic style.

So what are the Three bright new spring fashions have strutted off the runway and on to the BRITAX B-AGILE . The fresh line of stroller fabrics features the vivid aqua “peacock” shade of the male bird, a bluer take on emerald, Pantone’s Color of the Year, complemented by the vibrant “plum” purple and versatile “granite” gray colors of its feathers.

All three colors are available on the  B-AGILE DOUBLE stroller single strollers. The peacock color, along with sandstone beige, a popular neutral shade and currently a part of the single stroller line, will be available on the B-AGILE DOUBLE stroller.


Bottom line: There’s an added a sense of style to the everyday activity of using a stroller. While impressive in form, the BRITAX B-AGILE strollers are also striking in function. Thanks to the CLICK & GO integrated adapter system  the B-AGILE strollers can easily accommodate an infant car seat. The integrated adapter allows infant car seats  to simply “click” into BRITAX strollers to provide a quick and secure attachment without the purchase of additional adapters.

Both light-weight strollers feature a “quick fold” that allows parents to easily fold the stroller after the press of a button. They feature all-wheel suspension, five-point safety harnesses and fully-structured seats that allow baby to comfortably and safely ride from birth up to 55 pounds.

The new fashions for the BRITAX B-AGILE (MSRP: $249.99) and B-AGILE Double (MSRP: $449.99) will be available online and in independent and major retailers in late June. For more information about BRITAX, visit, or find BRITAX on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube

And because every parent deserves baby gear that is both highly stylish and oh so functional we are giving ONE very lucky parent  one of  the new fashionable  B-AGILE (MSRP: $249.99) COLOR of The Year strollers!

    Get sleep while you can! Try using a baby sling or carrier when you want to get some chores done. I used vinegar and water for most of my cleaning so it was safe to use around my kids.

    try not to over baby-proof.. it will just make it harder as your kid gets older and smarter and you will be in trouble when you visit someone else’s house that isn’t baby proofed!

  91. kim nguyen says:

  92. Leah says:

  93. SA says:

    Sleep while the baby sleeps- and savor the snuggles while they’ll do it, because toddlers just want to run and play!

  94. Megan Arce says:

    Best advise: relax and enjoy it!! Time goes by so incredibly fast- learn to LITERALLY stop and smell the roses- savor every second (even the hectic, not so fun ones).

  95. Heather G. says:

    Best advice… Live in the moment each day with your beautiful kids that you created. Life gets cut short too often and time flys so you got to enjoy it while you have it!

  105. Haven says:

    Best advice for parents? Do the best job you can but don’t expect yourself to be perfect because if you expect it out of yourself, your child will expect it from themselves and that sets EVERYONE up for failure.

    Second piece of advice.. remember that you must take some time for yourself and have outside interests or you will find that when your children are grown and leave home that you have no sense of identity. It is one of the hardest things in the world to feel old, alone and without direction. If you make yourself a priority as well as your children, you will teach your children to respect you as well as themselves.

  106. beth z says:

    best advice? enjoy them while they’re little! they grow up SO fast, all those little tiny baby moments fly by so quickly :)

  109. Kira K. says:

    Spend as much time as possible snuggling and holding your baby. They grow up so fast, so cherish the opportunities that you have!

  110. Rachel Cole says:

    My best piece of advice for new parents is to take a deep breath. It is okay if you are not enjoying every minute because it is hard. But it is okay, just keep doing your best, take lots of pictures and choice to do one fun thing with your kids instead of a chore everyday!

  123. Best advice? Make freezer meals before you turn 36 weeks and make sure to either have 1. a hospital bag packed 2. or a birth “box” packed before full term.

    Freezer and easy crock pot meals saved us and watching my birth box go unused till 40w5d made me feel comfortable and confident that when it is time it is time and when baby is ready we will be. :)

    Best piece of advice: enjoy every moment! Time goes so fast and our little ones grow so quickly.

    Best advice: Freeze meals before your due date because baby doesn’t give you too much time to cook, clean, etc. I thought I would have time to whip something up so didn’t bother. Sometimes he doesn’t even give me long enough to makes a sandwich before he starts crying.

    My advice would be to lean hard on The Lord. He will give you strength when you feel like you just can’t do anymore.

    I liked you on Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook! :) Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

    My biggest piece of advice, as I am the mom to a 10 year old and a 26 day old baby boy, is to relish in the moments that drive you crazy as they will be the ones you look back on and laugh. OH, and hold your newborns as much as you can, they will benefit from the extra love more than you know!

    To relax a little a try not to worry so much because she’d be grown before we knew it!

    Best advice would be to breathe and don’t stress about whether or not you’re a good parent or doing it all right. Do the best you can and when you need help, don’t be too afraid or ashamed to ask for it.

    Best piece of advice…follow your instinct with the baby, and don’t believe it should be like all the other parents say. Each baby is different, and it is your baby who determines how your parenting should be. It doesn’t always go by the books.

    The traditional advice is to sleep when the baby sleeps, but my first baby was not a sleeper. Here is my best advice, don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t assume that your husband will be a mind reader. I had to learn to vocalize what I needed (which was hard for me) but when I did it, I got help. Also, there is no such thing as “perfect”. I do the best than I can and have accepted that as my new level of “perfect”.
    And just remember that “this too shall pass”. I just had my third baby in May, and the sleepless nights are hard but this time I know that in a few months…I am going to feel better when my baby starts sleeping, which eventually he will do. Hang in there ;)
