*Thank you Graco for sponsoring this post. Regardless all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend products I truly love.
One of the most common questions I get from friends who are expecting is “what should I put on my registry?” I usually laugh at this because the question is so subjective. And as any mom will tell you – different babies like different things. Therefore, it’s hard to tell anyone everything that might make their lives easier as moms, but there are a few things that every mom needs, regardless of baby preferences. Among these are things like a baby bath tub, diaper pail, and a travel system. Yes, everyone should register for a travel system.
In case you aren’t familiar with baby product lingo, a travel system is a car seat and a stroller, where the car seat can be popped out of its base and clicked into the stroller. So why would you need a travel system? Well it just makes life as a new mom so much easier. No having to go through the hassle of removing baby to put them in the stroller. No worrying that baby is too little for the big stroller you have. And no having to wake a sleeping baby. Everyone knows how bad that is!
Using a travel system works perfectly for me as a mom of 3 kids. Most places we go my older 2 don’t need or want to be in a stroller, so I only need it for the baby. We also go to a lot of parks and places where we are “off-roading”, so the Graco RoadMaster Jogger Travel System is perfect for this mom. First of all, SnugRide Click Connect 30LX infant the car seat that’s included is amazing. It’s easy to install, super safe, and baby Millie sure seems to enjoy being in it. And the stroller is great too! It’s easy to fold and unfold, rolls smoothly, has a huge undercarriage for all my kid’s stuff, and I love how the car seat easily clicks into it! Quick tip – it’s recommended to wait to jog with your little one until your child can support his or her head on their own.
Now we all know you’re not going to always have everything purchased off your registry for your baby shower, and this is one that is a must have. So why not take matters into your own hands – right now Graco has an awesome program going on if you are an expecting mom working on your registry! Graco knows how overwhelming setting up your registry can be so they launched the Graco Hello Baby! registry program to reward parents who buy their products! Now through the end of July if you buy a Graco Travel System (with a value of at least $250 or more) and send them your receipt they will send you back a baby gift basket valued at over $100 and containing products from other great brands like Yankee Candle and NUK! If you’re interested in doing it follow these steps:
- Take a picture or screenshot of your completed baby registry showing a Graco Travel System (minimum $250 value before taxes) that have been purchased or given to you as a gift.
- Snap a photo of completed registry showing the qualifying products, retailer and expected arrival date of your child.
- Text GRACOHELLOBABY to 811-811 or upload the image on www.gracohellobaby.com.
