Re: DD hates the new stroller!

My older daughter hated our Chariot jogging stroller. I would take her out for a run and she would scream the entire time, so I stopped jogging! I think she didn't like the enclosed feeling, even with the top open. We used our small peg perego with her and she liked it. My younger DD has no problem with the very same jogging stroller, she just doen't like the cover put down, even if it's raining. My DH is home with her full time and uses this stroller with her every day as the handle can be switched to a different height (he's tall).

We got lucky with the first two of the car seats, but after that I took him shopping for most of them. He had very strong opinions. I'd just set the ones I liked on the floor and see if he'd climb in them/sit in them. A few he wouldn't even go near. Same with strollers. At six months, he had strong opinions on strollers when we switched out of the snap and go. We'd take cruises around the store. Then I got another one (I had the Quinny Zapp)/the Uppa about 8-10 months ago, I forget and we both went again and he'd just not get in them or pitch a fit. We both agreed on the Uppa as he pitched a fit when I took him out and tried another one. He's that way with shoes and other things too. Some stuff he cares about and others he doesn't. It entertains me but I can see how it can be very frustrating too.

Just consider her a smart little girl and listen to her as she's probably right on these things.

The two umbrella strollers we liked were the Chicco (I forget which one but it was the middle one) and the Uppa but the Uppa was lighter and cheaper so I went with that one. The backs are firmer and sit more upright. He seemed to sleep regardless of a recline so I never worried about getting one.

Look on the city mini website - they have a back support insert that may help. I didn't like them though I really wanted to for many reasons at at the time that was one.
Well I finally went back and returned it. I decided that for now I will just stick with our Chicco Cortina, atleast I know DD likes it. Tried out a couple umbrella styles... Chicco Liteway and Maclaren Sport. I was hoping for a tray though. I know the Chicco Trevi had one but I don't care for the red or green. Anyone know if I can purchase a new seat fort Mac frame? Ours is ratty...of I can do that I just might.
