Britax Bob Revolution Pro First Impressions

We take the kids out exploring the forest and sea shore regularly and I have to admit that Sebastian’s current stroller does struggle with rough terrain.  I was forever getting stuck on tree roots or wedged in sand, so when I was offered the Britax BOB REVOLUTION PRO to test out I knew I could really put it through its paces. The Bob has a lockable front swivel wheel which is designed with tracking adjustment, allowing you the keep the stroller steady… Continue Reading “Britax Bob Revolution Pro First Impressions”

Sebastian has attended baby swimming lessons with Turtle Tots since he was 4 months old and is definitely a water baby.  Nothing seems to phase him, he is happy both underneath and on top of the water and will quite happily float on his back supported by a hand just supporting his head.
