Chick Picks: The Best Strollers for Suburban Moms

Last month I shared with you the best strollers for city moms. Today I’m going to list the best strollers for suburban moms! But what differentiates the perfect stroller for the urban mom and suburban mom? In my opinion it’s all about lifestyle. Compared to city moms, a lot of suburban moms have more space, bigger cars, are driving more frequently, are more price conscious, and have better walking access to local parks. Because they have more space this allows them to have bigger strollers as well as a jogging stroller. 😉 I also made sure to add some less expensive options to this list for families looking for a great deal. Here are my top picks for the best strollers for suburban moms!

1. BOB Revolution Pro

Britax’s 2017 B-Ready is the ultimate versatile stroller for suburban families with ever-changing needs. This model is adaptable to virtually any possible parenting scenario. It is a smooth ride, has an easy and quick fold, and I love that it can adjust from one to two seats (similar to the UPPAbaby Vista) and 12 versatile seating options. And this price point, you just can’t beat it. The Click & Go System also provides easy connection to any Britax (and only Britax) infant car seat for the perfect travel system.

The Graco Modes Click Connect stroller is the lifestyle stroller that truly grows with your child from infant to toddlerhood.

4. UPPAbaby G-LUXE

Chick Picks: The Best Strollers for Suburban Moms | Baby Chick

I know that this was also on my city moms stroller list, but in my opinion this is the best umbrella stroller on the market. If you are constantly getting in and out of your car and you don’t want something so bulky to haul around, this light weight stroller is the one for you. With its ability to recline, easy to fold, great maneuverability, light weight, ample canopy, and overall quality it is seriously the best option for an umbrella stroller.

This modern style stroller is easy to assemble, opens and closes easily, it’s maneuverable with one hand, and it collapses with the lift of a handle. This stroller is also perfect for taller people since the handle can be adjusted higher than most strollers. Love this modern style with great amenities. Two thumbs up!

🤪 Chaos Coordinator: How to Stay Calm in the Mi 🤪 Chaos Coordinator: How to Stay Calm in the Midst of Chaos 🧘‍♀️⁠
.⁠
The title “chaos coordinator” is not just a phrase people put on shirts. Instead it’s a job promotion that comes from having little humans tearing through our house. Kids that still think jumping from couch to couch is an acceptable form of exercise while stripped down to undies with kitchen tools in their hands. And it's enough to send even the most even-keeled mama to a state of madness sometimes. As moms, we know the craziness is a part of our life. What many of us don't know is how to stay calm in the middle of the chaos. 🧘‍♀️ Is it even possible?⁠ 🤔
.⁠
I think it is. Not in every single moment, but certainly as a whole. And it’s all about training ourselves to reset ourselves in small ways. Here’s my favorite ways to find my calm in chaos. 🤗 {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

“The list could go on and on. And it's different “The list could go on and on. And it's different for every mother. And every father. At first glance the list seems daunting but it demonstrates that even the best things in our lives come with a price. What may not be surprising is that women who anticipate these changes, who understand the trade off and prepare for it, may experience less distress during the postpartum period.⁠
.⁠
Ultimately, we aim for balance. We weigh the yes's and the no's, the achievements and the mistakes, the pervasive chaos and the rare hints of order, the unanticipated triumphs and the likely defeats. We wait; we hold our breath, we wade through the mess, accept that losses are part of this experience and proceed mindfully through this eventful life transition. Then, when we aren't looking, some of the losses on our list return to us, sometimes the way we remember them, sometimes as part of our new normal. Either way, the payoff is usually worth the wait.” #goodmomshavescarythoughts #speakthesecret⁠

❤️ How to Get Toddlers to Listen Without Yelli ❤️ How to Get Toddlers to Listen Without Yelling, Bribing or Threats ❤️⁠
.⁠
As a big believer in positive living, once I became a mom I naturally gravitated towards positive parenting. However, even with the best intentions, we noticed that we started to yell at times to get our rambunctious toddler boy to listen and even started using bribes:⁠
"If you get dressed and be good, I will give you a treat."⁠
and threats⁠
"If you don’t listen right now you are going into time out."⁠
.⁠
These seem to work in the moment, but the behavior never improved. It was like a cycle continuing over and over and the more our son didn’t listen, the more frustrated we got. Turns out, trying to get our kids to listen with yelling, bribing or threats has more negative effects on a child's behavior, which is clearly counterproductive. I thought there had to be a better way. And there is.⁠ {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!}⁠

Super Bowl Sunday in America is one of the most fun and well-loved sporting events of the season. 🏈 I remember getting together with friends and family as a child and watching all the men yell at the TV while the women sipped cocktails in the kitchen. 📺🍹 And everyone indulged in all the amazing Super Bowl Sunday snacks. 🍔 The whole event, for me, was just as much fun as Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner with the family. I looked forward to it every year! 🤗⁠

Now that I have a family of my own I want to make Super Bowl Sunday just as fun for them. 🤩 But, I really don't want to spend all day in the kitchen, especially after the madness of all that holiday cooking. 😓 So, I've come up with some easy, but delicious, Super Bowl Sunday snacks the whole family with love! ❤️ You can do just one or two of these, or the whole lot of them if you're feeling ambitious!

As both a mom of toddlers and a nationally certifi As both a mom of toddlers and a nationally certified yoga instructor, I’ve experienced firsthand how fun and beneficial yoga can be – not just for parents but for their children, too! Yoga can be so instructive in terms of understanding what our body needs to be healthy. For a child to see and experience the mindfulness that yoga enables in tandem with a parent truly sets a foundation for that child’s awareness of what it means to be healthy—both physically and mentally.⁠
.⁠
Today we're sharing six yoga poses that can be done universally with any age—including toddlers. We’ve also included a conversation prompt if you’d like to dialogue with your child throughout the exercise. (As a reminder, don’t be discouraged if your child is acting silly or can’t master a yoga pose. The point is to have fun and relax, above all else!)⁠

What is HypnoBirthing? – Podcast Ep 24 🤰🧘‍♀️💗⁠
.⁠
There are many different comfort techniques that you can use during labor and delivery that will help keep you more calm and comfortable. One option that many women aren't aware of or overlook is hypnosis. It can sound a little weird and "voodoo-like" so oftentimes women will write it off. But I've witnessed many women use this tool in labor and it's actually not as strange as it sounds and is really impressive. 🤔⁠
.⁠
I've had several clients take HypnoBirthing classes, but I wanted to learn more. What is HypnoBirthing really? How does it work? Who is this method for? What are the benefits? For today's podcast episode I had the privilege of chatting with Cliodhna Griffin, the founder of @bornfreebirthing and Houston Placenta Services. Cliodhna is a certified and experienced HypnoBirthing Educator, Master Trainer and Faculty Member of the HypnoBirthing Institute. Cliodhna answered all of my questions and more. She's pretty incredible and her passion is obvious. {To listen to today's podcast episode, click the 🔗 in our bio!}⁠

YES 👏 IT 👏 DOES👏⁠ Go and find your troo YES 👏 IT 👏 DOES👏⁠
Go and find your troop, your tribe, squad, village. Whatever you want to call it. Find people to surround yourself with who will support YOU, love YOU, encourage YOU as a woman and as a parent. Parenthood is tough. Especially when you feel alone. So find your village and love them hard. And from one mother to another, load up on wipes. Because motherhood can get quite messy too!⁠ 😉⁠

An amazing story from a determined mom to breastfe An amazing story from a determined mom to breastfeed her #triplets. 💗 With hard work, determination, help and support, anything is possible.
Words & 📷: @triplets_and_toddler
.
“I breastfed my first child so I knew I wanted to #breastfeed again. People were skeptical about me #breastfeeding triplets, and this drove my determination! 💪 My boys were born at 29+3 and therefore it was so important for them to have #breastmilk! 🤱
.
After having an emergency C-section, I knew there was no time to rest, so I started hand expressing within the first hour. I set an alarm to ensure that I expressed every 2 hours during the day and every 3 hours overnight. ⏰
.
Being separated from my boys was hard so having pictures/video links helped whilst I expressed. Seeing my teeny, vulnerable babies in their little incubators drove my determination to provide them with my milk! I also rotated muslin squares between us so that I could smell them and vice versa. This also helped me whilst I expressed during the night away from my boys. Their smell on the swaddles kept me focused! 💙
.
Twice during our #NICU journey my boys were split between hospitals over an hour apart! This was the hardest time and meant I was separated from 2 of my boys for a couple of days. During this time I kept up with expressing and ensured that all three of them had enough milk to take with them until we were all reunited.
.
Looking back I feel it is my sheer determination that has really enabled me to successfully breastfeed my triplet boys! Not once have they needed donor or formula milk. It required a massive commitment both physically and emotionally but I am so proud of my achievement! My boys are now 11 months and are still breastfeeding." ❤️
.
*This story is not to bring any mothers down that choose to formula feed. (I, personally, had to give my son formula at 7 months old!) We share this mother's story to inspire mothers and celebrate our victories! ✨
If you are having breastfeeding struggles and want to succeed, contact a good local IBCLC and receive support. Find new mom friends who are also breastfeeding who can encourage you. And if you choose to formula feed, we honor you too. 💕 #mommychick

🧠 4 Ways to Promote Your Child's Mental Health 🧠 4 Ways to Promote Your Child's Mental Health 🧠⁠
.⁠
Your child’s mental health is fairly complicated. It's also critical to their overall health and wellness. We often think of mental health as it pertains to adults, but just like growth and physical development, research shows that mental health is something that should be considered starting at birth. ❤️⁠
.⁠
When children are very young, their brains are extremely sensitive to environmental stress. Toxic stress, defined as high levels of prolonged stress, can have life-long effects on children. Limiting stress for young children is critical for their early mental health. One of the most fundamental ways we can help eliminate toxic stress is by building a strong relationship foundation from the very beginning of their lives. Your relationship with your baby is an integral part of their sense of self-esteem, independence, and confidence; three key factors in mental health.⁠
.⁠
Building that relationship with your child can be broken down into four key concepts . . . {Click 🔗 in bio to find out what they are!}⁠

💤 Good Bedtime Routines for Babies of Every Age 💤 Good Bedtime Routines for Babies of Every Age 💤⁠
.⁠
If you’ve ever typed into Google, “Why won’t my baby sleep?” you’re not alone. In fact, you’re among thousands of other parents/caregivers who are likely as tired as you are. Chances are, if you have gone down the Google rabbit hole at 2:00 a.m. (or just asked your pediatrician for sleep advice), then you’ve most likely been introduced to the concept of a bedtime routine.⁠
.⁠
A bedtime routine can be an incredibly helpful tool in establishing healthy sleep habits and good sleep hygiene. Infants and young children thrive on routine; in fact, they are comforted by predictability (spoiler alert: most adults are this way, too!). Plus, a young mind is exposed to so much new information every day that it’s reassuring for a child to know that they can depend on certain events to have a predictable structure.⁠
.⁠
Bedtime routines are also a cue to their brains and bodies that sleep is coming. With a predictable bedtime routine, your little one will start to recognize the order of the routine and begin to anticipate what comes next. With enough repetition, this process happens automatically in a very Pavlovian way. A calm and successive routine will also make the onset of sleep come more easily. Can you imagine if you walked out of your workout and immediately someone told you that you had to lay down and fall asleep? This would be nearly impossible, and the same is true for our little ones. By allowing them some time to unwind, you are making the falling asleep process that much easier. Here are some tips on what to do for your little one's bedtime. ❤️⁠ {Click 🔗 in bio to read more!}⁠
