I received these products for my review. All opinions are my own.
I recently started nannying for an infant in my home. My boys are 5 and 6, and I long ago gave away all of their baby things. Chicco to the rescue! I didn’t have a Chicco car seat, stroller, or playard when my boys were tiny, and after being sent the KeyFit 30 Carseat, Activ3 Stroller, and Lullaby Playard, I can’t believe what I was missing out on!

I loved each of the products, they were all fabulous. But I have to say my favorite is the Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat. It’s amazing. I won’t mention the brand that I used for my boys, but lets just say it’s a very popular one, and the KeyFit blows it out of the water. On so many levels. The bubble level is AWESOME and makes me feel so comfortable knowing that the little one is properly secured. It’s also adorable, and seems very comfortable for baby. It is bigger than other infant car seats I’ve seen, which is great because it can hold a child up to 30 pounds! That’s awesome. It clicks right into the base and the stroller, so the system works like a charm. It uses the Latch system, and that is easy to adjust which is good because sometimes those things can be tricky to get in and out. I seriously do not have one complaint about this car seat, I’m in love!

I’ve had a lot of strollers in my day, some good and some very, very bad. I can tell you that I was SO impressed with the Activ3 stroller right away! It rides like a dream. And I don’t know what your #1 criteria for a good stroller is, but mine is definitely a smooth ride and easy turns. Done and done. It’s a jogging stroller that really is a great day-to-day stroller as well. One of my favorite features is that when you fold it up (with one hand, I might add), it stands up. I hate having to lay the stroller down on the ground once it’s folded to get a good grip on it to lug it into the back of the mini-van. This one stays nicely at attention, and then fits standing up in the back of my van. This is way easier, and means I’ll use it a lot more. It looks and feels so durable, and I know I’ll have this stroller for many years.

I don’t have anywhere in my house for a crib to be, so a pack and play is the only way for nanny baby to sleep at my house. This means I needed a good one. One that was comfortable, and not just good for traveling but good for everyday use. I am so excited about the Lullaby playard! It’s easy to set up, and is a perfect size. One thing that I don’t love about it is that while it does come with a carrying bag, the pad part doesn’t fold up around the pack and play part and velcro together with a handle so you can just travel with it like that. (it does velcro, just not all the way around it.) But for me, that wasn’t necessary anyway because it just comes in and out of the closet. And, like I said the carrying case is easy to slip on and off for traveling. I love all the extra features for newborns, what a fun way to welcome baby home with snuggly places to sleep and get changed. I love the basket for holding diapers and wipes- I don’t know about you, but I never used the changing table in my boys’ bedroom. We used the floor or the couch, but I wish I had had this pack and play to set up in our living room to do all the changing right there!
