The Vaude Shuttle Premium is designed for serious walkers who want their kids to share their outdoor adventures. The feature spec is high and so is the price, so is it worth it?
Happy, crazy, funny, adventurous, unpredictable, daft as a brush, up for it. That’s my little boy Sonny, who turned one this week and has just given me the most ridiculously brilliant year of my life.
So you’ve decided to take your baby for a bike ride, but how the hell do you do it? Here are eight simple tips for cycling with babies that will get you started on your family biking adventures.
I generally gauge the quality of baby outdoor gear by the amount of noise Sonny makes. If he’s loud and angry, it sucks. If he’s quiet and content, it’s a huge thumbs up. And happily the Isbjörn Cozy fits into the second category.
The thing that scared me most about becoming a dad was that I’d become boring and stop doing all the stuff that made my life fun. Turns out the opposite is true – I’ve become a big kid and rediscovered so many things I’d forgotten I loved!
While I was thrashing around in a giant ball pit at Leo’s Fun Zone yesterday (and secretly having the time of my life) something suddenly hit me: our baby boy already has way cooler stuff, and is doing way cooler things, than I’ve ever done.
The Little Life Arc 2 travel cot trebles up as a lightweight portable bed, convenient baby day prison, and outdoor sun shield, with the added bonus that it packs down into a small backpack for easy transportation. A 3-in-1 masterpiece!
The last thing I want to do is force my little boy into anything he doesn’t want to do, but how will he experience new things if we don’t give him the occasional nudge in the right direction?
If there’s one thing Christmas 2016 taught me (apart from that festive hangovers and babies don’t mix), it’s that it’s finally time to say a tearful farewell to my trusty little hatchback and buy a proper dad’s car.
I found out quickly this winter that cold ears = unhappy baby. Which is why this daft beanie hat from Isbjörn of Sweden has been an invaluable addition to Sonny’s outdoor wardrobe.
