5 Gear Picks for modern Dads
When buying gear for your baby such as strollers, bouncers and carriers – it’s beneficial to pick out items that Dad will also want to use. Thanks to the evolution of design and cool new inventions, this is no longer a difficult feat.
Oh how times have changed – when we were kids we were often pulled around the neighborhood in a little red wagon, reeled in by some sort of “leash” while at a theme park, or sat in a bouncer on the dryer to be soothed to sleep!
Nowadays, baby gear is not only getting safer by the second, but also cooler. Strollers, carriers and car seats are sleek, innovative, made to last and specifically engineered to actually help you and your family live your best lives. Here are 5 of our favorite picks for in-the-know-dads.
- Bumbleride Indie Stroller: Sustainably produced, the Bumbleride Indie Stroller is the perfect fit for fast paced dads. From the pavement to the trail, it adapts to your daily adventures called life. Indie is set apart from the rest with its compact, lightweight frame, 12″ air filled tires and unmatched versatility. The fully adjustable backrest, footrest and handle create a customized fit for you and baby.
- Ergobaby Four Position 360 Cool Air Carrier & Four Position 360 Bundle of Joy: Sometimes you need your hands free, which is why we recommend the Four Position 360 Cool Air Carrier, which is the newest addition to Ergobaby’s award winning collection. Its breathable 3D Air Mesh lining keeps baby cool year round while its unique, structured bucket seat, padded shoulder straps and wide supportive waistband offer exceptional comfort and ergonomics in all carry positions, providing maximum comfort for baby and carrier. We also love the Four Position Bundle of Joy as it allows you to safely carry baby from birth to toddler, using different positions that will keep them (and you!) comfortable. The carrier can be adjusted for height to allow for better neck and head support as baby grows.
- Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller: When you’ve got a crying baby – or a sleeping one – the last thing you want to do is fuss around with their car seat or stroller. In fact, wouldn’t it be amazing if their car seat became a stroller, with the click of a button? This was the thought process of Yoav Mazar, founder of the Doona – the world’s first infant car seat that transforms to a stroller in seconds, no additional parts required.
- Union Backpack by STATE Bags: Don’t worry – you don’t have to carry a typical, “baby bag.” The Union Backpack is STATE Bags’ premium classic backpack and finished with high-end details. It features a large main storage compartment with padded laptop pocket, a second compartment with multiple supply organizers, key clip and iPad pocket, a front stash pocket, leather-bound side pockets and heavy gauge antique brass zippers. Pair it with the Degraw Diaper Insert for extra Super Dad organization!
- Nuna LEAF curv Baby Bouncer: We know how important your down time is, which is why the award-winning Nuna LEAF curv Bouncer is the perfect solution for babies who need to be soothed, entertained (or just put down for five minutes!) The noise-free, motor-free design maintains motion for more than two minutes with just a gentle push, so your baby can snuggle into dreams or kick and play in nature-inspired comfort.
