Baby Gear Update Pt.1

I thought I would share with you an update on a couple of products I originally featured back in November from our Baby Shower Event and a new item we received since then, that we both use and really like.

Peg Perego Aria Twin 60-40 Stroller

You can check out my review of our Peg Perego double stroller from back in November. Do I still feel the same way? Yes, I still love it. I don’t use it very often, because I baby-wear most of the time. However, there are times when it is easier to use the stroller with both younger girls.


  • Opens and closes easily.
  • Love the storage basket below.
  • I use it with my Peg Perego car seat.
  • Easy to maneuver and goes in all doorways.

Cons -

  • It’s wider then most strollers when folded.
  • If you only have one kid in it, people look at you funny.
  • The seat belt detaches from the seat often.
  • The wheels have recently been starting to squeak.

You can purchase a Peg Perego Aria Twin Stroller for $350.

Fisher Price Luv U Zoo Cradle ’n Swing

Having a swing for baby is kind of new to me. With both my older girls, I only used our little dinky portable swing maybe a handful of times. This time around, I couldn’t be more grateful to have it. No joke, she spends almost all of her day time naps in her Fisher Price Luv U Zoo Cradle n’ Swing.

Pros -

  • Seat swings in 3 different directions.
  • Seat adjusts two ways. Sits back for newborn/infant and more forward for older baby’s.
  • You can use batteries to operate it or plug it in (like we do).
  • Plays 8 different songs and 2 soothing sounds.
  • Domed mirror with motorized mobile of animals.
  • Bright and colorful.
  • Use from birth – 25lbs.
  • You can remove the seat pad easily to wash.
  • Folds up to store when not in use.

Cons -

  • My girls won’t leave the swing alone!

Seriously, I have nothing bad to say about this swing. I wish I would have bought one years ago!!

You can purchase your own Fisher Price Luv U Zoo Cradle ‘n Swing online or at local retailers for around $140.

4moms Cleanwater Infant Tub

You can check out my review of the Cleanwater Collection from 4moms from my Baby Shower Giveaway Event I previously hosted. Now that baby girl is here, I have been able to actually use the Infant tub.

Pros –

  • The color coded digital thermostat is easy to read and use. Helps keep baby’s bath water at the perfect temperature.
  • The included bath sponge keeps baby comfortable.
  • It continuously adds water to the tub.
  • Cup holders for the rinse cup and shampoo.
  • Fits in the bathtub or sink.

Cons –

  • It’s pretty big. In our smaller bathroom, it gets in the way when not in use.
  • More expensive then most infant tubs.

You can purchase a 4moms Cleanwater Collection for $90.

    What great reviews on prodcuts. I wish I would’ve read your review on the double stroller when we were looking for one for our twin boys. :) Thanks for your honest opinions. ANY mom would find these very helpful. :)

  5. Great reviews! It’s funny that you said people look at you funny when there is only one child in the double stroller! The same thing happens with us too! :)

    I love the Fisher Price swings! We had the Rainforest swing and used it for both kids…I don’t know what I would have done without it! And I also love the 4moms tub. That was another one we had for both kids. Great post!

    Isn’t that funny about the swing? We didn’t have one for the first and then we ended up with one for our second — and she never wanted to leave it! Makes us wish we had one all along.
