In exchange for my honest review, I was gifted this product from Saddlebaby. All opinions are my own.
We are a busy family. I’m sure that’s to be expected with three kids age 6 and younger, a dog and a busy lifestyle! Staying home because of those reasons just isn’t our style! We typically head to Florida bi-monthly, we head to a ton of festivals here in Nashville, we love the farmers markets, and we plan to do a good bit of camping and hiking this summer now that I’m not pregnant! Sure, we have an awesome double stroller but a stroller isn’t always practical. Who wants to lug a stroller through the mountains or try to squeeze it through crowds? I know I’ve accidentally run over a few toes of those not kind enough to move, it stresses Jay out to bring our side-by-side double stroller out.
I am a BIG fan of baby wearing, I wear my babies everywhere, even in the grocery store. I like having them close, I love knowing they feel comforted. Ada is 5 1/2, she loves being independent and walking by our side, but Grey is your typical 2 year old and has one pace- “run away from everyone as fast as I can” speed. If you have children you know the speed I’m talking about. They always seem to save it for the busy crowded areas too, right? They duck and weave to places we adults can’t. IT scares me. Try to get him into a stroller after he’s tasted his freedom? FORGET it! Trying to carry him? FORGET it! He will squirm and squeal and cause quite the scene making the rest of the time very unenjoyable!
The answer to our solution?
“SaddleBaby is a patented and uniquely simple product that enable parents to carry their children on their shoulders hands-free. SaddleBaby allows you for the first time to safely free your hands to do more and focus on spending quality time with your child and your little one will LOVE it!”
We now have the ability to go out to events and go on adventures without our bulky stroller! Ada can walk beside me, I can wear Wes and Jay wears Grey in the SaddleBaby. The seat is seriously the coolest thing ever! It’s easy to put on, its comfortable and the ability to use your hands rather than holding Grey on makes our adventures much easier! And Grey loves feeling like he’s got a birds eye view, he thinks hes a giant on his Daddy’s shoulders!
It came in perfect timing for our holiday trip to Florida and I’m so excited to have this at Disney! Those crowds can be crazy and knowing Grey will be safe on Jays shoulders calms my nerves!
Stay tuned for some updated photos once we get back from our Disney trip, but seriously, is this not the coolest thing you’ve ever seen?!
