Even though our kid is five, we still occasionally stick her in the stroller (for ideas on which stroller to pick check out our guide). We have a massive jogging one, so she doesn't look like one of those huge kids who have arms and legs akimbo out of the side of a tiny stroller. Mind you, we still don't do this often. Just when we're jogging with our dog. Little legs can't go as fast as we want our heart rates to go.
Even though she's a bit older, it's still amazing all the stuff I have to bring. I thought the days were over for lugging around everything. Apparently not. Water bottle for her, water bottle for me, snacks, hand wipes, dog poop bags, cell phones, a coloring book (if I'm going on an hour run with the dog), etc. Where am I going to put all these things?
Britax to the rescue, as usual. We've trusted them for years with our car seats and such, so it figures that they would come up with a way to fix the stroller "stuff" issue. They just came out with this amazing Stroller Organizer. It easily and securely adjusts and attaches to almost any stroller handle and holds a ton of things. There are also two insulated beverage holders that keep cold drinks cold and warm drinks warm. The large center compartment features a magnetic closure (read: no more Velcro that immediately wakes up your sleeper). Three outside pockets are easily accessible for small items such as cell phones or keys. One forward-thinking aspect is the collapsible design. It doesn't interfere with the stroller fold, something that any parent who's doing this action one-handed will appreciate.
Since she won't be in a stroller for much longer, we're going to move this puppy into the big dog, our car. We've figured out a way to attach it to the back of the passenger side headrest. Now on those panicky long car trips, she'll have access to all she might need/want.
Knowing I can store everything I need during our run...now that's enough to slow my heart rate down.
The Britax Stroller Organizer is available at britaxusa.com for $29.99.
