Top Pick – Orbit Baby Double Helix Baby Stroller


When my two daughter’s were growing, I went through MANY different strollers. I tried cheap ones, expensive ones and several different creatively designed strollers.  One I didn’t have the opportunity to try, but I recently had the chance to check out in person is the Orbit Baby Double Helix stroller.  If this baby stroller was available back when I needed a double stroller, it would have been my top choice.

The Orbit baby stroller and car seats are one of the best designed products currently on the market. They are slightly more expensive than other brands, but well worth the money when you consider who’s riding in them and how often you’ll be using them.

Here are some of the nice features of the Orbit baby double helix stroller… With two SmartHub rings, parents now have the option to stroll with multiple combinations of Orbit Baby seats (infant car seat, stroller seat, bassinet, and toddler car seat sold separately), making it perfect for siblings, twins, and growing families. Front and back rotating seats mean siblings can interact while strolling, and the swiveling double seat makes it easy to help your child get in and out. With just a couple of clicks, the frame converts on the fly into an uncompromised single stroller to fit your changing family life. The patented QuadShock suspension on all wheels gives the stroller a plush ride, and the narrow 6 wheel maneuverable frame easily navigates through narrow doors and aisles. The stroller’s compact, nested 3D fold fits in many different trunk spaces, and its smart storage options include a large under stroller basket, two cupholders, a smartphone slot, and the ShadePad tablet pocket. It also features a custom black finish aerospace grade aluminum frame, 3 position telescoping handlebar, and hassle free, no pump tires. The Double Helix Stroller Frame is compatible with Orbit Baby’s stroller accessories, including the Sidekick Stroller Board (when in single mode).

All of these great features make the Orbit baby double helix baby stroller one of my Parenting Tips Blender TOP PICKS!

Top Rated / Best Jogging Strollers Currently Available


As all new and expecting parents come to find, there are baby strollers in multiple styles and colors.  Each style of baby stroller has a unique use. Lightweight umbrella strollers for quick trips, standard lightweight strollers for everyday use, travel systems which serve as a stroller and car seat carrier and then there’s my favorite, the jogging stroller.

Out of all the baby strollers that I used with my two daughters, the best stroller and my fave was always a jogging stroller. At one point I had two jogging strollers… a single and a double.

Why was a jogging stroller my favorite? Several reasons. The larger wheels are both comfortable for the child and they go over all types of terrain. There’s room to carry a bag underneath (most models) and they can be used in just about every situation. I would use mine all day long, for just about everything I did with my girls. From trips to the zoo, to exercising. Best of all, the jogging stroller was always the easiest for me to push around because of the larger air-filled tires and because most joggers are taller than normal strollers. Since I’m 6’3″, I always got annoyed with pushing around smaller umbrella strollers that I had to bend down to reach.

If you’re considering a  jogging stroller, here are the top 5 best sellers currently on the market.
