Thule Sleek 2019: My 4 Fav Features + Full Stroller Review - In Partnership With Love Me Do Baby & Maternity

For city families, strollers are often like an extra vehicle. They accompany us on everything from tedious weekday errands to fun family weekend adventures. They need to be able to stand up to some serious wear-and-tear, and adapt over time to suit our family’s growing needs. After 4 kids and 8 years with our initial stroller, we were in desperate need of a replacement. When searching for a new one I had a few key things I wasn’t willing to compromise on.

  1. Great sun protection with a large extendable canopy

  2. Narrower than our previous stroller (I’ve had issues with old buildings, small shops, and TTC vehicles)

  3. Large basket for storage

  4. The options for a skateboard attachment for our preschooler to ride on (The Thule Sleek happens to have full double stroller capabilities, and the option for a bassinet, car seat adapter etc, but our family doesn’t need those accessories at this stage in the game.)

When Love Me Do Baby & Maternity reached out about a partnership to do a full review of the 2019 Thule Sleek Stroller I jumped at the chance. This stroller is not only beautiful, but checks all of the boxes I needed. Watch my full Thule Sleek Stroller Review to learn all about this incredible stroller, including 4 of my personal favourite features, and why it’s a perfect fit for city families.

Packing For The Hospital - Labour & Birth: Video + FREE Downloadable Packing List

As I’m preparing for the arrival of baby 4 I thought I would share a New Video about Packing for Labour & Birth. As a Midwife & Childbirth Educator I am always asked about what to pack. Although not all of my clients deliver in hospital, everyone needs a bag ready, just in case. I suggest getting it out of the way early so you can feel prepared. Having your bag packed by around 36 weeks is ideal.
