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.
