With my little one approaching four months we are starting to enter the world of baby gear. From shoes to swings and the latest in strollers, here are some of our favorite baby gear trends for 2015.
Baby Cargo: Renowned for their lightweight, innovative, and affordable stroller designs, we have been loving the high-quality Series 300 stroller.

This includes a removable infant positioner keeps newborns snug and safe as well as the ability to reclines flat so that a newborn can sleep safely. This also has a five point safety harness, easy to fold design, and retractable sunshade to shield your baby from harmful UV rays. Modern moms will also love smartphone pocket with accessible window for quick tweets and lullabies for baby as well as the nearby cup holder.
Little Tikes® by Diono® has created smart stroller fittings to make sure you have a spot for everything you need. The stroller cut holder ($9.99) is a perfect fit for your water bottle or baby bottle and the stroller hooks ($3.99) are great for draping a towel and fit any stroller handle! Another favorite from Diono is the Buggy Buddy. With its zippered pocket for valuables, insulated drink holders and insulated cargo bin, it’s the perfect way to carry snacks, drinks and everything else.
