New Orbit stroller

orbit-g2-todseat-red1Check out the new Orbit stroller.  It should be available sometime in early 2010:  http://is.gd/3wRY1  They are calling it the Orbit G2 stroller.  I wonder if I should hold off on buying my stroller until this one is released.  Yeah right, I cannot afford this stroller!!  Plus, Tom aka UWSDad would kill me for purchasing something so expensive!!

Yesterday I went to a Big City Moms event, The Happiest Baby on the Block with Dr. Harvey Karp.  It was held on the Upper East Side at All Souls Church.  Tom and I had heard from a few people that recommended the DVD/book.  I did not have any expectations and did not do any homework (so unlike me!!).  However I was quite impressed once he started talking as he not only talked about his techniques but showed us his techniques on fussy babies in the audience.  The amazing part was that they work.  Those crying babies were quiet within a minute or two.  He has made me a believer and I am eager to try out his ways with Hunter when he arrives. 

I learned quite a bit at the event and am definitely happy that I went.  I learned the proper way to swaddle and how easy he made it look.  I suspect it may take a few tries to get the swaddle as perfect as he seems to do it.  I had never thought about white noise before.  It is amazing how little I can relate to Hunter right now.  He is hearing noises at a level far louder than I hear things yet the first thing I would probably worry about is the loud noises around us. 

I recommend picking up his DVD for anyone who may be struggling with fussy/colicky babies.  At worst, you spend a few dollars but the reward is so much better – more sleep and less crying from you and your baby.  Note:  He also has a Happiest Toddler on the Block which I will be attending next year if all goes well with the baby techniques.

One last thing – I won another raffle.  I won passes to a series with Big City Moms called You Just Had a Baby, Now What?  Since I am not due until November, I will be able to attend in November/December.  Hunter is truly bringing us good luck.  Now if only he would win us the Orbit stroller, we would be VERY happy!!

Thank you, Big City Moms for another great event.

Uppa Baby VistaBig City Moms is having an event on Tuesday, May 19th and Wednesday, May 20th.  They are holding it at Planet Kids – Tuesday is on the UWS and Wednesday is on the UES, both at 6:30pm.  I am so excited about this event as we are still not sure which stroller we want to add to our registry.  We are torn between the Uppa Baby and the Orbit.  They are both very different strollers with great features.  The question becomes which features are most important to us.  We don’t know, which is why this event should be very helpful.  At the event, there is a giveaway and I may come home with a free stroller.  Though I have to admit that I am not too confident about that one since I am one of the most unlucky person I know.  I am lucky in life, just not contests.  I hope to see lots of expectants moms (and dads) from the UWS there.
