Working Momma Diaries: A Double Stroller for 2 around 2
Photography by @the.dailylens
Anyone else out there overwhelmed by stroller options? They are so expensive, there are so many brands and I feel like you can really develop FOMO from picking out the wrong stroller (ok, maybe it's just me?!). I really thought I would be one of those awesome moms who 'baby-carries' everywhere, but after having Adelaide, I was diagnosed with Thumb Tendonitis and 'mom shoulder' which was really painful and made it really hard to carry her around. Don't get me wrong, I pushed through, but when it comes to walking through grocery stores, the mall, going on walks, going back to school or clothes shopping or frankly traveling through the airport ....or going to the beach...I always fall back on putting everything into my stroller. She's happy, I'm not in pain, and I have a place for both our water bottles!
I spent a lot of time researching double strollers once I found out we were expecting baby #2. Sometimes, I wish I had just purchased one the first time around, but hey, you live and learn. One of my top Registry Items for Baby #2 includes this amazing stroller by Zoe, the XL2. For the next few months you can use code Kaylee10 for 10% off your stroller, too!
Let me tell you why it's worth it.

First of all, it's a luxury stroller at a great price (under $300). Both seats recline all the way down or up, & have adjustable foot-rests (SAY WHAT?!). The canopies are all UV50+ safe and can fold up or come down to cover all the way to my toddler's knees. You can also zip the canopy off to make it a smaller canopy if you have a toddler who fiddles with everyone (anyone but me?!). Further, the canopy's are built with magnetic closing netting on the top to encourage air-flow.
Let's talk cargo space. My current travel stroller folds to fit on the top of an airplane overhead. I thought that was all I needed. I was wrong - I need space for waters, snacks, diaper bags and sometimes my purse when we're on the go. This stroller is built for that! The canopy underneath fits my Fawn Design Diaper bag x2 and a purse, plus the stroller comes with a built-in parent cup and when you add the parent organizer you get space for TWO more parent cups, your cell phone and snacks. You can also remove the belly bar (see pic above) to put in 2 cup holders for each kiddo with a snack cup in the middle and then fold everything into a storage bag backpack Oh, and did I mention that all of this comes WITH (unless you want the rain shield, parent organizer, or extra back-pack like carry strap which we use because we don't always put it into the bag) . GENIUS!
Further, it's also made for the modern momma, especially a working momma. It fits through all doorways, is Disney approved and even has the fancy foot brake that makes it easy to stop-go-shop-walk to the airport ticket counter - you name it! And the best part? It folds up, can stand by itself, and weighs only 19lbs. For a double stroller, that's amazing.
Honestly, I'm not sure if I need another stroller because this travel stroller does it all! For the next few months you can use code Kaylee10 for 10% off your stroller, when you buy it on Zoe's website!
