EPS: Energy-absorbing foam, Expanded Poly Styrene, in the shell and head panel absorbs crash forces, resulting in less force transferred directly to child, minimizing injuries in the event of a crash.

Strollers in the City

We just returned from another amazing trip to New York City. We were there for Big City Moms’ Biggest Baby Shower Ever – New York, and as always, we had a great time. We just love meeting new moms and recommending the perfect stroller for their family, lifestyle and city.

 So, which strollers did we find ourselves recommending the most while in the big Apple? We’re so glad you asked …

Ever since it was featured in 2007’s The Nanny Diaries, our Pliko — now sold as the Pliko Four and as the reversible Switch Four — the Pliko has been a city favorite, and for good reason. Our Pliko models combine all the best features of a full-sized stroller (multiposition recline, large canopy, Easy Drive system) with the convenience of a lightweight design that offers quick, easy and compact folding.

In addition to the Pliko, we also recommended our two newest strollers — the Book and Book Plus — to city moms a lot. Named for their compact, book-like fold, the fully loaded Book and Book Plus are perfect picks for on-the-go families, offering all the features they need in a super-stylish design.

Another Peg Perego favorite for urban moms is our beloved Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 infant car seat. Travel-system compatible with all of our full-sized strollers, the Primo Viaggio SIP 30-30 can also be used in a vehicle with or without the LATCH system base — perfect for quick cab rides.

Do you live in a big city? Which Peg Perego stroller would you recommend?

Basics for Baby

Babies may be teeny tiny, but they sure do need a lot of stuff! Of all the things a newborn needs, three pieces of gear top our list: a car seat, stroller and high chair. So what should you look for when deciding which pieces to add to your registry? We’re so glad you asked …

1. Car Seat
When selecting a car seat, the most important consideration has to be safety. Our celebrated Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat exceeds the most stringent safety tests in the world. Designed for infants from 5 to 30 pounds (or up to 30 inches), the Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 features a Side Impact Protection (SIP) head panel that protects a child’s head, neck and spine. This SIP protection easily adjusts to 10 different positions, ensuring a perfect — and safe — fit. The Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 also has energy-absorbing foam in the shell and head panel that absorbs crash forces, resulting in less force transferred directly to child and minimizing injuries in the event of a crash. Plus, a Shock Absorbing Foam Element device located below the shell crumples upon impact, reducing stress on child’s neck and shoulders in the event of a crash. There’s also a five-point safety harness and a special removable cushion just for newborns.

2. Stroller
If you’re searching for a stroller with a newborn in mind, there are some important considerations. First, you’ll need a stroller that offers either a full recline and/or the option of attaching a car seat or bassinet. Most of our strollers are travel-system compatible with our own Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat. And our newest stroller, the Book Plus, accommodates both our infant car seat and our newborn-ready bassinet.

3. High Chair
Since it will be months before your new baby will try solid foods, you may think it’s too early to think about a high chair, but a high chair can be a great place for baby at family mealtimes. All of our high chairs have a tilt-in-space reclining seat that’s perfect for young babies, even newborns. Our multifunction Tatamia is especially great for newborns because it transforms from a baby recliner to a high chair to a baby swing.

In Review: Our Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible

Offering the same safety and style as our celebrated Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 infant car seat, our Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible is quickly making a name for itself all on its own.

Following your little one from infancy through toddlerhood by converting from a rear-facing (for children 5 to 45 pounds) to a forward-facing (for children 22 to 70 pounds) seat, the Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible is one of the most versatile convertible seats on the market. But don’t take our word for it. Plenty of experts agree …

The editors of Fit Pregnancy included the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible in their 2013 Buyer’s Guide, citing:

“The shock- and energy-absorbing foam of the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70, combined with its side-impact protection, minimizes collision injuries. For comfort, the wide seat and recline options give extra legroom.”

The Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible also made its way onto Baby Center’s Top 15 Baby Products of the Year for 2012.

“Sleek Italian styling (no crazy patterns here!), reliable safety features and thoughtful design make the Primo Viaggio magnifico! A rear-facing weight limit of 45 pounds (the highest on the market) lets you keep your child rear-facing longer. Plus, its shallow front-to-back measurement means more room for the driver or passenger in front and can make this seat fit gracefully into a smaller car. And the harness adjusts in seconds via a pull-tab on the headrest. Other quality features include breathable fabric and a contoured base, for a snug installation in most seats. In a collision, extra-thick shock-absorbing foam in the seat crumples to reduce crash forces in a collision, and a steel plate in the seat reduces forward movement and flexing.”

Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine also applauded the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible Car Seat for its top safety features, specifically calling out the seat’s SIP.

“The SIP of Viaggo SIP 5-70 stands for Side Impact Protection. This system protects your child’s head, neck and spine in the event of impact of the lateral nature. It manages this by allowing you to adjust the seat to 10 different positions. The headrest, recline and shoulder straps all adjust to fit your child. The most convenient part of this perk: You can make all the adjustments you need while your child is sitting in the seat, eliminating the guessing game.”

And the best reviews? Well, they’ve been coming from the very best reviewers — all of you! Real moms and dads on Amazon have given the Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible a 5 Star rating. Why? Parents have repeatedly commented on the Convertible’s easy installation and fit (in a variety of vehicles), safety features, style and comfort for baby. Read all the reviews (there are more than 75!) for yourself here.

If you have questions about the Convertible, let us know. And if you have the Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible, share your own review by commenting below. We’d love to hear what you think!

Make a (Spring) Break for It!

Spring may be getting a slow start in most parts of the country, but at least we have spring break to look forward to. If you’re off to someplace warm (lucky you!), we thought we’d share with you some of our favorite travel advice for traveling with little ones.

Yes, you should bring your car seat, especially if you are flying. The truth is, a child-restraint system — not your lap — is the safest place for your little one during turbulence or in an emergency.  “Turbulence,” the Federal Aviation Administration says, “can happen with little or no warning. And when it does, the safest place for your child is in a child-restraint system, not in your lap. Your arms just aren’t capable of holding your child securely, especially when turbulence is unexpected.”

But what about getting through security? Lugging it through the airport? And making it fit on those tiny airplane seats? Read how our online associate, Emily, fared flying with her son and his Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible here.

And yes, you’ll probably want a stroller too. Which stroller should you bring? We get asked that all the time, and it really depends on where you are going and what you’re doing. Generally, our top travel picks include the very versatile Book Plus, the full-featured Pliko Four and the lightweight Pliko Mini. For siblings, we suggest the Aria Twin 60-40.

Where are you headed for spring break? Let us know if you need travel advice or a stroller recommendation. We’d love to hear from you!

Viaggio sicuro! (Safe travels!)

We ♥ L.A.!

The Santa Monica Pier. Venice Beach. Looking for stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Shopping at the Grove. You know what they say… when duty calls!

We just returned from the Big City Moms’ Biggest Baby Shower Ever – Los Angeles, and while we had an amazing time, the best part had to be meeting so many of you! We loved chatting with new moms and mommies-to-be and hearing such great feedback. (What topped our L.A. fans’ wish lists? The new Book Plus stroller, followed by our yet-to-be released Rialto booster and our celebrated Primo Viaggio SIP 5-70 Convertible car seat. The moms also couldn’t get enough of our new colorways — especially Fucsia.)

Thank you to our hosts, Big City Moms! We had an amazing time! In the last few months, we’ve been to New York, Toronto and then Los Angeles. Where should we head next?
