“This week I am introducing two brand new companies to WNOG and highlighting three other products that are from companies we already love. Many of these products are great for travel and are easy to take on the go with your little ones. Plus, this week they are all absolutely brand new to the baby and toddler world. They also make great baby shower or birthday gifts. I am very excited to share these new items with you!
Bumbleride Era: Just announced by our friends at Bumbleride, the Era is their first ever reversible seat stroller. We love Bumbleride’s commitment to creating eco-friendly products that will hold up for active families. Era is an all-terrain stroller that will also be perfect for daily use. Pair it with a compatible car seat to create your own travel system too! ” – Gugu Guru Editors
“With my due date literally right around the corner, I’m so excited to finally get to put all of the amazing items I’ve been gifted for Baby Girl Beech to use! When I first found out I was pregnant, I was completely clueless as to what products I would need to care for a baby. My friends and family would spew random information at me, which was super helpful but also extremely overwhelming and hard to take in. I’d make note of things mentally that stood out to me as items and products that would work for me and our family’s needs and lifestyle but when it came time to get organized and put together a baby shower registry, it was difficult to know where to begin! Cue, the registry guru who stumbled into my life at just the right time and helped me more than I could ever express! Monica Banks is the founder of Gugu Guru and now someone I’m grateful to call a friend. She is an expert on all things babies and children and was so crucial in my decision making when it came to products for our little one. Monica kept me organized, educated, prepared and above all else, made me feel confident that it was all going to be okay whenever I got overwhelmed or had questions. The guidance and careful thought that went into every category of baby products to suit our family was just brilliant and I’m thrilled she was able to take the lead on this blog post and share all the details of my baby shower registry with you today! Hope you enjoy!”- Shenae
Jogging and running in an urban environment is a great way to stay fit and healthy, but when you throw a stroller into the mix, things can get hairy. Between narrow sidewalks, potholes, public transportation and people traffic, finding the perfect jogging stroller for city living can be a challenge. After chatting with many parents, and lots of research, we rounded up our top picks for urban environment jogging and running strollers.
Best Storage Pick:
Bumbleride Indie: This is an absolutely gorgeous stroller with great features – a wide canopy, compact fold and ample storage. We also love that the stroller is manufactured with eco-friendlier textiles. We wouldn’t necessarily recommend this stroller for hard core runners, but it’s a high-quality option for your one and only day-to-day stroller and jogger.
“Happy Earth Day! Going green and helping to take care of the Earth for future generations is important to many moms, so we asked our team of Gugu Concierge Baby Planners and Maternity Consultants to share their Top Eco-Friendly Picks.”- Gugu Guru
