Introducing Santi's new ride...
The Maclaren Sport Quest!
M and I took the plunge in purchasing our not-so-little boy a stroller. He already weighs more than 20 pounds now and as much as I'd like to sling him all day when we are out, my back gives up on me after a few hours. Yes, yes he was not into the old one before
but for some reason when we placed him in this one he didn't complain at all. We thought, 'maybe he knows how much it's worth!' or 'he must be thinking THIS IS MORE LIKE IT!' But, not until he got hungry for my boob. Of course I'd pick him up, sling and nurse.
Day 1 with stroller at the Podium mall: Strolled around for about 20 minutes. Baby got hungry. After feeding, I still let sleep in the sling until he woke up. Then back into the nice stroller.
Day 2 in Mega Mall: I attempted to place him in the stroller while he was asleep and he actually slept in it (with a little fuss in the beginning but when I started moving the thing he gave in and slept again). Total time spent in stroller: 30 mins.
It's hit or miss still though because awhile ago when we were at the grocery- Hopeful me wanted to do some grocery shopping using the spankin' new stroller BUT after about 5 minutes in it, he decided to shriek. Thinking he was hungry, I slung him, injected my boob but after sucking for a minute he refused. Then I returned him in the stroller but after a few minutes again, some shrieking. And so the cycle began for another 3 rounds until I gave up and just slung him until he finally slept on me. People were staring at this mom slinging her baby with grocery goods in the stroller.
