Becoming a parent is one of the most exciting and rewarding times in your life. Once you discover you’re expecting, there’s an enormous amount of information available, and it can be difficult to cut through the noise. There are so many things to keep in mind – most critically, the safety and comfort of your new little one.
Other considerations include ease of use, functionality, and style. Discerning consumers fill their lives with carefully curated furniture, fashion, and accessories. Becoming a parent doesn’t mean giving up your sense of style!
First things first: choosing an infant car seat
Research suggests that 4 out of every 5 infant car seats are installed incorrectly, which can reduce their effectiveness in the event of an accident. Choosing a seat that helps make correct installation simple and clear not only relieves parental stress, it helps keep baby safe. Another important consideration is the weight of the carrier. A lightweight seat makes it easier to transport baby from place to place.
The gb Abri Infant Car Seat was designed and engineered to the highest standards of safety and design, and features innovative functionality and style. The unique Fit-Loc Belt Tightener and 4-position adjustable base offers peace of mind by helping ensure the proper fit of the base to vehicle. The lightweight Abri is also designed with an ergonomic handle to make carrying easier. Plush premium fabrics and 5-point safety harness keep baby comfortable and secure.
Next steps: do I need a travel system?
Newly expecting parents often wonder, “what is a travel system and do we really need one?” If you want the ultimate in portability and flexibility, the answer is yes. The ability to move a sleeping infant from car to stroller without disruption is a huge bonus! When they’re a little older, simply switch to the stroller seat for shopping trips or strolls in the park. If you live in a city, you’ll want to make sure that the travel system you choose has a narrow enough footprint to easily navigate doorways and store aisles while being sturdy enough to take city sidewalks and curbs. Since your new stroller will be a constant companion, be sure to choose a fashion that reflects your personal style.
The gb Evoq full-size travel system is a smart solution, offering 4 modes of use in one sleek, stylish package. It includes with the Abri Infant Car Seat (base included) and can be used from birth. Offering the ultimate in versatility, the stroller seat in parent-facing mode allows baby to keep their connection with you. When they’re a little older, let them explore the world ahead in the forward-facing mode. The multi-position recline in both parent-facing and forward-facing mode give numerous options for baby’s comfort.
When older children get tired of walking, let them ride along on the glide-on standing board. This is also a great solution for being out and about with two little ones. Highly useful features like the expandable XXL air-flow canopy, large storage basket, and parent cup holder make the gb Evoq a favorite among new parents. It also offers premium fabrics, a narrow footprint, and sleek styling that will fit seamlessly into the lives of modern parents.
Ready to explore: traveling with baby
Navigating airports, visiting relatives, taking long trips by car or train can be a challenge with baby. But the right gear allows you to focus on what’s really important: having a great family experience. Look for a stroller that folds up easily with one hand. When you’re carrying baby and luggage, you won’t want to struggle with opening and closing a stroller. Lightweight maneuverability and a compact folded size is a must in a travel stroller. You’ll want something that can fit in an overhead compartment on most flights or be gate checked easily. Our designers kept all of these considerations in mind when creating the gb Qbit LTE travel stroller. Nicknamed the “go anywhere stroller”, the Qbit LTE combines exceptional convenience and every day comfort. The uniquely designed one-hand fold is quick and easy to use, leaving your other hand free for baby. Once folded, it fits perfectly into the included transport bag for the utmost in portability. Best of all, the Qbit is also travel system ready! It comes with included adapters to accept all of our gb infant car seats, as well as the Maxi Cosi Mico.
