Congrats to the winner – 

Entry #1458 – Lilia K.

This week’s Baby Gizmo Giant Weekly Giveaway is all about giving another stroller away before you can even buy it! Yep, our winner is going to be one lucky gal or guy!

The phil&teds smart lux is the next evolution of the smart stroller. They introduced the smart stroller back in 2010. Although it was a great, little, travel stroller, phil&teds made a huge change to the smart because of consumer demand and our Baby Gizmo video review.

phil&teds understands that they must keep making things better to solve key parenting challenges with relevant products. Enter the smart lux, a luxury stroller on air.

smartlux phil&teds Smart Lux Stroller GIVEAWAY!

The smart lux hasn’t hit the market yet (we did see it at the ABC Expo in October) so we don’t have our full review and video for you YET. Soon, my friends, soon. So that you know what you could win, we wanted to share the information on the stroller.

A luxurious and compact single stroller, smart lux has a sleek urban design that rolls confidently over cobblestones & pavements (where others vibrate and bump). With air-filled rear wheels & front wheel suspension smart lux offers uncompromised all terrain maneuverability in a modern urban stroller, providing the most comfortable ride for your child…get ready to float on air!

smart lux is complete with a modular convertible main seat (lay flat mode, parent facing and forward facing all in one seat) and offers 21 riding options to grow with your child from birth to 4+ years.

Take luxury a step further with a gorgeous bassinet accessory made from pure bamboo fibers to create a soft, breathable and comfortable resting space for your wee one, on and off the stroller. smart lux also conveniently converts to a travel system, so you can move baby’s car seat capsule from car to stroller and back again without disturbing baby’s sleep.

Other notable features:

● Air rear wheels & front wheel suspension for a smooth ride
● Easy and compact telescopic fold
● Slim line only 21.6” wide!
● Easy access basket
● Extendable canopy for additional protection & a peek-a-boo flap

  1. Bernadette Nunez says

    Slow down. Dishes and laundry can wait. Enjoy your kids. They’ll be grown before you know it.

  2. Jamie R says

    Sleep when the baby sleeps and be flexible! Babies are great at making sure nothing goes the way you planned!!! And always remember, this too shall pass.

  3. Daniela Morgan says

    I like breastfeeding advises. I needed them so much so I’m glad I was told to feed on demand :)

  4. Jackie says

    My advice is to raise your child to your standards.. Not those of other moms or dads. Its not a competetion whose child does what first… Whats important is your child is healthy and reaches those milestones

  5. Lisa P says

    I have learned…let your child excel in their own time. Each child is so different with each milestone.

  6. One Southern Girl says

    I don’t have any kids… but my mom says the most important things to remember are it’s alright to ask for help and your baby grows up fast!

  7. Melissa Meltzer says

    The best advice I always say is none at all – I think mothers need to be empowered to do whatever they need to do, and sometimes overdoing it with tons of “motherly advice” from others, although well meaning, can be very overwhelming and anxiety provoking.

  8. Christine Jestice says

    Do what you think is right! Don’t feel like you have to listen to other people, especially when it comes to breastfeeding!

  9. Alina Moiseyev says

    Don’t take things too seriously like when kids make a mess, don’t stress, relax and enjoy ur kids..

  10. soumiya k says

    What I give is “you’re going to screw them up or break them one way or another, so (this thing) isn’t the thing to worry over.” What I liked to get was “live life. Make noise. Have parties. They’ll become a part of your life better that way than if you male your home monastery.”

  11. Shannon smith says

    Best parenting advice is probably don’t take yourself too seriously. Your gonna get peed, pooped, and puked on you will be stressed and if you take it too serious you’ll loose your mind

  12. Amber White says

    Make sure your son is tall enough to actually reach the toilet when he asks to pee standing up for the first time!

  13. Dottie Stone says

    Best parenting advice that I have is to always trust your gut, don’t be afraid to try something new, and remember to laugh and enjoy every moment because it flies by so quickly!

  14. Rachelle says

    My best piece of parenting advice is to stay calm. Your mood reflects on your kids. Most things aren’t worth getting upset about.

  15. Kristi N says

    Follow your instinct and try not to over research/read too many books. There are a million reasons to possibly attribute your current struggle to and you can go nuts trying to figure it out (teething, growth spurt, motor milestone, etc), meanwhile forgetting to enjoy the good little reminders why you embarked on this adventure in the first place.

  16. holly neville says

    Do what works best for you and your family was prob the best advice i got and give to others!

  17. Angela T says

    When you feel overwhelmed with the constant demand of being the person to keep your child alive, functional, happy, etc. remember it goes by and becomes a memory and just go with it. You can survive.

  18. Michelle g. says

    Each child learns differently so be patient with each one. Try not to compare milestones with the other. Like I always say “it’s not like they are going to be 10 wearing diapers” or “it’s not like they will be 5 and not speak”. Patients is key :)

  19. Jennifer says

    ‘settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, im rocking my baby, and babies dont keep.”
    it put everything into perspective

  20. Yodean Armour says

    Don’t ready too many books on “how-to” about your baby – you’ll end up more paranoid

  21. Melissa Easton says

    Listen to your gut and do what you think is best. Also, learn patience ~ for the things your child will do that make you crazy and for yourself for all the tasks you won’t complete. Most importantly, no matter what you’re facing realize this too shall pass :)

  22. Rebecca grangroth says

    Favorite advice…no kid will starve with food in front of their face. Next favorite pick your battles. (As in don’t sweat the small stuff)

  23. Sarah Hayes says

    accept help when you need it. sometimes Ive felt like I needed to do it on my own when I really shouldve opened up to having help from others.. so dont be afraid to have other chip in!

  24. Caroline L. says

    Trust yourself.. only you know how to be the best mother you can for your child.. listen to your motherly instincts.

  25. Tracey Hall says

    “Go with the flow,” I always remember this and it seems to put a little smile on my face!!

  26. Claudia Alvarez says

    my best advise: Take one day at the time because believe it or not, everything will pass very fast from the sleepless nights to the beautiful first steps. so, Enjoy the ride!

  27. Angela Y says

    I would love to win this for my little one. My advise is always listen to what you child is telling you, no matter big or small. Always find time for them.

  28. Stephanie Jarrett says

    Accept help when offered. Sleep when the baby does. Laugh often. Enjoy babies because they grow up too fast!

  29. Alycia says

    The best advice for me was to let go of my expectations – whether it be breastfeeding, sleeping, eating, whatever – each kid is different and what is normal for my friend isn’t necessarily our normal and I shouldn’t compare.

  30. Karen Gil says

    I would love to have this stroller because I need it for my baby that is on his way and we cant afford a new one :) but only to think about my baby put me a BIG SMILE IN MY FACE !!! Love to being a mommy !!

  31. Stephanie says

    My favorite advice has been to be flexible, sleep when baby sleeps, and don’t feel guilty for doing what works for you, your baby and your family.

  32. Katie D. says

    Always kiss and hug your kids, kids need affection to be come confident teens/adults. Always let a sleeping baby lie. Cleaning can wait, moments with our kids are fleeting.

  33. Isis Sample says

    Enjoy every single moment because before you know it your baby is a little person with a voice and mind of their own! so no matter how tired of exhausted you are remember it’s only a short while before you’s gone forever.

  34. Fi R says

    This is a good looking stroller! I would definitely be able to tackle all the bumps and uneven sidewalks in the city! Love!! =)

  35. anuja says

    What a great stroller! Best parenting advice from my mom to me ‘ sometimes you let baby be a baby’

  36. Amy Steinle says

    My advice is, don’t let mommy guilt consume you. You are the best possible parents for the child you were given. Own it!

  37. Renee Smith says

    Research things you don’t know. Information is golden! It’s ok if you make mistakes, just do better the next time.

  38. says

    My favorite. Takes lots of pictures. My baby pictures were lost to hurricane sandy so I want my kids to be able to look back at pictures and see there lives. I know when to put the camera down but I like to document everything.

  39. Cheyenne says

    My advice would be to just enjoy the little things. They aren’t going to want to snuggle with you forever. And don’t take everyone’s advice ;) Some of it is outdated, doesn’t apply to you or your child, doesn’t fit with your views or beliefs.

  40. Elle B says

    Most decisions will not be that big of a deal in a few weeks/months/years. Trust your instincts and trust the other mothers around you to do the best they can.

  41. Nicole Phaler says

    Best parenting advice I got was to appreciate every moment, because childhood is just a whisper.

  42. Nicole Phaler says

    Best parenting advice I got was to appreciate every moment, because childhood is just a whisper in your child’s life.

  43. Andrea G says

    I will sleep in the grave! And just when you “figure them out”- they’ll change! And ultimately, these are the best years of your life. :)

  44. Glynis Nelson says

    This too shall pass. Seriously, it goes so quickly that you need to realize that whatever situation is so stressful at the moment will be over soon… only to be replaced by another issue! ;)

  45. Chelsea Arbri says

    Best advice: Every baby is different, what you read works for others may not be right for you.

  46. Rebecca Jackson says

    My favorite recent advice is when you decide to potty train take a few days off and go straight to underwear. My son just turned 19 months and it has only been 4 days and he goes on the potty like a champ. On day 3 he had no accidents and day 4 only 2 but there was a lot going on and I kind of mixed things up on him a little. Best advice!

  47. Rebecca Jackson says

    Take a few days off to dedicate to your child and go straight to underwear when potty training.

  48. Keith S says

    Just remember, “there is always tomorrow” and enjoy wasting the day with whatever little thing your little one wants to do. They grow up way too quickly!

  49. hallie gadon says

    Don’t be afraid to ask for help parenting is the most rewarding and challenging job a person can ever have.

  50. Jennifer D says

    My best advice is to definitely listen to the older generations advice. Don’t just blow it off like they don’t know anything. We know times have changed, but it puts it at a different perspective. Plus you are alive, Right?

  51. Jennifer M says

    Don’t be too had on yourself, stop comparing yourself to others and laugh as much as possible!

  52. Michelle LM says

    All babies develop differently and parenting is often difficult. Ask questions of those you trust and follow your gut.

  53. sherry blamer says

    Don’t listen to people on how to raise your child. do what you feel is best for you and your children.

  54. joanna garcia says

    always go with your gut feeling and do not listen to what everyone tells you! You know your baby best!

  55. Michelle LM says

    All children develop differently and parenting is often difficult. Ask questions of those you trust and follow your gut!

  56. Sarah Eikenberry says

    Enjoy every minute with your kids. Life is too short, and they grow up too fast to stress about the small stuff. Being there and present takes priority!

  57. Peggy M. says

    Be flexible, babies don’t always stay on the same routine. Heck once you think you get one down, you can bet on them changing it up. Being flexible with their routine is essential. Always go with your gut, you are the mama and know your baby better than anyone.

  58. Nicole Webb says

    The first month sucks, but it does end. Or breastfeeding is hard and it hurts and there is a 6 week learning curve.

  59. Jessica mandy says

    Best advice….every child is different and achieves milestones at their own pace. Oh, and the first weeks of parenthood are like being in the army:).

  60. Naomi w says

    As a mom you will intuitively know what’s best for your baby. Listen to other but do things your way.

  61. Caitlin Smith says

    Trust yourself and your instincts- not what other people or books tell you is right for YOUR child!

  62. Deb D. says

    You get a lot of advice from other parents but the best advice is to do what is right for your family and don’t judge other parents.

  63. Jennifer says

    Forgot my advice… Don’t sweat the messy stuff. Whether it’s diaper changes or messy fingers. Dirt, stains, and accidents will happen so roll with them.

  64. melissa d says

    Love to win this thanks for the opportunity. Trust your instincts when it comes to your baby/child. They are usually right.

  65. Katie says

    The best Mommy advice I would give. Is when you are looking for a stroller look for a light weight stroller. I made a huge mistake with my son and bought a stroller that was a beast! Would love to win this Smart Lux for my little girl making her debut in 1 week.

  66. Amber Carroll says

    This would be an awesome prize for my daughter. We have one stroller, but it’s heavy and bulky. Plus it’s not as comfortable as this one looks.

  67. Hilary Livgard says

    You are doing the best you can! Don’t be so hard on yourself. And the dishes can wait, snuggle your little ones first.

  68. Marianela Aponte says

    Instead of taking pictures and recording every moment. Try just sharing the moment with them because that feeling is so much stronger then a picture or video clip.

  69. will rivera says

    We are expecting our first child in April. I have heard parenting advice from everyone and everywhere. I think the best advice I can give myself is just take it easy and enjoy the time.

  70. Tina T says

    Take pictures everyday, breath, don’t yell, sleep when possible, treasure every waking moment, smile, laugh with them, play, dance, kiss them everyday and tell them you love them every night.

  71. carla says

    I’m pregnant with my 5th and I think it’s time for a new stroller :-) is love to win! I’m a huge Phil and Teds fan.

  72. Stephanie Maginot Thillens says

    Be prepared to change your mind and how you planned to approach parenting, no two kids are the same and there are no one size fits all parenting rules! See also, sometimes you have to roll with it and relax your standards.

  73. Kristen G says

    My daughter is very strong willed and Ive had to learn that I dont need to win on every battle. I want her to keep that strong will instead of crush it. Ive had to learn that not everything will be dont the way I want it to be done and thats ok.

  74. Kimberly Reynolds says

    I dream of owning one of these strollers. I have reviewed them and they seem to be one of the best and so nice.

  75. Holly T says

    Not so much advice but the words of a song that stuck with me. “You’re gonna miss this, you’re gonna want this back.”. I remind myself of that all the time but especially when parenting gets overwhelming. Someday these kids will be surly teenagers and I’m gonna wish they were wild and crazy toddlers once again:p! It just goes so amazingly fast and I don’t want to forget that and get too caught up in the daily struggles of parenting:).

  76. Debra W says

    Something I forget – but is so important: Take time to remember who you are :) Parents are so busy giving of themselves to their children, we forget to do the things that we have loved to do in the past. . .

  77. Abigail R says

    Best advice is to listen to your own heart. You will get parenting advice here and there but only you know what will work for you and your kids.

  78. Aleia Chambers says

    Do what works best for you and your children. As long as you and your kids are well cared for, happy/healthy, it doesn’t matter what other people think of your parenting choices.

  79. Jessica says

    Enjoy your kids…really enjoy them! Play in the rain, fingerpaint with them, just have fun and worry about the house later! Thanks for the chance to win!

  80. Amanda Aspling says

    Breathe. You’ll have all smile/happy days, rough/stressful days, and in between days. Every day is different but try to relax and remember tomorrow’s another fresh new day :)

  81. Emily Coen says

    My favorite advice is to give yourself a lot of grace and to know things want feel “normal” for a long time.

  82. laura j says

    Don’t be afraid to say no, and to tell people thanks, but no thanks for the advice. At some point, you have to trust your own judgement

  83. Teresa Honores says

    Take time to treasure all the precious moments and be with your baby i know we have so much to do in a day but time flies and then we want them to be little again, take lots of pictures!

  84. Ani W says

    my best advice is “if it feels wrong dont do it” You get so much advice about not holding your kids and not responding to them and it always felt so wrong to me but I thought I had to do it because it was the way it was done.

  85. Gina Hiskes says

    I learned it from a poem. “Cooking and cleaning can wait til tomorrow, for babies grow up, I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cooking. Dust, go to sleep. I’m rocking my baby, and babies don’t keep” :)

  86. Leah Simonson says

    Best advice I ever got was to never buy any of those “how-to parenting” books. Each child is their own person and is never the same as the last.

  87. Brittany P says

    The best advice I’ve received is to trust yourself and make informed decisions that you feel are best.

  88. Alene says

    Would love to win this! No parenting advice from me yet as I am going to be a first time mom in April:)

  89. says

    Introduce a bottle by 3 months of age, to prevent your baby from refusing to take a bottle. This is great parenting advice for all breastfeeding mothers.
    Amie Olson

  90. Karen McAdams says

    Parenting is counterintuitive… If you hold their hand through everything so they can learn better, they will take longer to learn and won’t learn as well as they would have on their own. Take a deep breath and let them go. (As long as they will be safe and not harming others).

  91. Patrick Sharkey says

    Would love this stroller. New to parenting, but do what you feel is right. There are so many conflicting views out there.

  92. Bridget S, says

    I love the versatility of this stroller, and it would be perfect for my little boy due this May!

  93. Maria R says

    Heard lots of rave reviews about the Phil and Ted brand. Looks like another great stroller from them!

  94. Rachel Davis says

    Take time to notice the little things. And don’t freak out of your child isn’t hitting every milestone when other child are. They will let you know when they are ready. Everyone is different and it doesn’t mean they aren’t smart!

  95. Stacy Matthews says

    My best parenting advice would be take a breath and breathe. the sleepless nights will end soon, the terrible twos will go by quickly even though it doesn’t feel like it, the potty training will be over soon! Just Breathe!

  96. Lilia Kharabora says

    Parenting Advice – At times I myself need advice but today I would say just LOVE your babies and go with your instinct. You will be surprised how much God has put in you that you already know.

  97. Charlotte Brodt says

    Be patient, but also be present and intentional with your time and interactions as their parents. And pray, pray, pray and commit to some time for scripture and worship each morning to help sustain you through even the hardest days.

  98. jodi mccool says

    Do what works for you. If its working thats all that matters, even if books etc say otherwise.

  99. Elizabeth P. says

    My favorite advice, is you’re baby/child will not go by the book. They are an individual and let them be one. And don’t sweat the little things, you may think you’re doing nothing right but you are doing a great job!

  100. roxanne debord says

    Everyone will offer their opinions about what they think is right, but YOU are a parent now and this is your child. YOU make the decision and know what is best for your child. Don’t let anyone make you think differently.

  101. Nicole V-P says

    you are one person you can’t always do it all even though you may try, let others help you, take a break, have time away from your kids and cleaning.

  102. Irene OCampo says

    You could read and recieve endless amount of information regarding how to parent. But when in comes down to it stick to your motherly instinct nobody know your child better than you.

  103. Regina W says

    It it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it!

    Just because he/she may do it, doesn’t mean you’ll get the same outcome, trust your judgment!

  104. Jennifer says

    Thanks Baby Gizmo for the great reviews, you really helped me narrow down my first stroller purchase and who doesn’t love a new stroller :)

  105. Marci Lundberg-Asmus says

    Yes please! This would make shopping so much easier! I have a 6 3 2 and 8mo, our double is full and our 3 yo is a wanderer

  106. Caitlin Zayshley says

    Best advice I’ve had is to just embrace every moment for what it’s worth. They really do grow up quick!! This stroller would be a perfect fit for our lifestyle !!!

  107. Leslie B says

    My best parenting advice is to take advice from others but do your own research and trust your own instincts. Thanks for the opportunity.

  108. Emily Roemer says

    There only advise I have received so far is to take a breast feeding class. And try to enjoy being pregnant.

  109. ANGELA MIRANDA says

    One thing I could say to a new mom or a mom to be, not every baby is the same. They differ in everything so never compare !

  110. Hanna J says

    Would love to win this for baby#4 due in june
    Thanks for the chance

  111. Ashley B says

    I asked about this stroller on the BGC Facebook page a couple weeks ago and I’m so excited to see it here now! I’m due in a week and I would *love* this stroller :)

  112. Shanda S says

    I think it would have to be take the time to spend time with and enjoy your children, they grow up so fast!

  113. Erin Vest says

    Trust your intuition. You may parent differently than your mother/sister/friend/neighbor/grocer. And that’s OK!

  114. Amy Hall says

    ask why. Why do I have to do what doctor said? Why should I do what dear old Mrs. Anderson said? Why does mainstream America do this with ther kids? Why should I have this rule or not have that one? In othre words: don’t blindly do what others do with their kids.

  115. Andrea says

    Best parenting advice would probably be don’t take yourself too seriously and trust your instincts!

  116. Katie Burns says

    We LOVE Phil & Ted’s Strollers! This looks like a fantastic new one and we’d love to win!

  117. Kayli says

    I’d love to win this my bugaboo dumped my little one in the crosswalk the other day…
    My favorite advice is sleep when they sleep! I work full time and when I’m not working it’s all about my 2 year old. I’m exhausted so as soon as she naps I’m down too that way we both wake up happy and ready to play. My husband naps when she does too!

  118. Annette Anastas says

    Love this stroller! Best advice is to breathe through the rough moments and enjoy everything else! Oh and coffee, lots of coffee!

  119. dina davis says

    I find that if I accept the situation and roll with it…. Difficult situations smooth out eventually…

  120. Lindsey L says

    Do what works best for you and your child. There is not one right way to do anything when it comes to raising kids, everyone is different!

  121. Maria says

    Best parenting advice — go with your gut; you don’t have to follow all the baby books. I think I gave that advice to myself, but I like it. :)

  122. Jenn Otto says

    Also – best advice I received was to just enjoy every minute – even the crying and screaming ones because it goes so fast. I am definitely heeding this advice.

  123. Jenni Jones says

    Follow your instincts – don’t listen to others, read books, or do things the way society thinks they should be done, just because. You have to do what works for you and your family – follow your instincts to be the best parent you can be.

  124. Amorette says

    Be patient, treat them and your partner the way you want them to treat everyone, model good behavior, give love and compliments freely but honestly, and always expect a lot from them but offer assistance when needed

  125. Julie Pruett says

    Trust your momma instincts. You know your baby/ child the best and know what’s best for your family. If something doesn’t seem right – you’re probably correct.

  126. Kara says

    Take time wih your babies my oldest turns 12 this week, and I swear she was just born;) hope we win the new stroller, I had Phil an teds with my son

  127. Brittany Allen says

    Looks great! Your instinct are probably right and do what’s right for your family even if it is against the ‘norm’.

  128. ilana m says

    Realize as your kids mom, and taking care of your kids 24/7 means you know best regardless of others “advice”

  129. Jessica Rodriguez says

    Spend as much time w/baby as possible because it all goes by so fast, it’s okay to leave the housework for another day and go with your gut.

  130. Candy Stephenson-Otoya says

    Housework can wait just take care of you and the baby and rest as much as you can!

  131. Stacy Willson says

    In 20 years they won’t remember what things looked like but they will remember the fun times they had so the housework can wait for another day.

  132. Kristina Frazier says

    Pregnant with our first – this would be such an amazing blessing to help us get prepared!

  133. Shauneice Ross says

    I’m a stroller fanatic!!! This stroller will be a great look for my 9 month old and I. In need of a stroller with air filled tires!!!

  134. Bethany S says

    My favorite advice is to try to always speak gently, and also to get those snuggles while they’ll still let and let you!

  135. Shayna says

    My favorite bit of advice is from my mother: “You should be writing this down! You’ll laugh about it someday!”

  136. Ling K says

    We just had our 2nd one..need a new stroller (& a good night’s sleep if you’re giving that away too ;))!

  137. Claire says

    The best advice is not to worry about how your parenting looks to other people, just do what you know is right

  138. Dave Bracha says

    Most memorable was sleep when the baby sleeps. But since that stage doesn’t last too long, now it’s remove yourself from the situation, and allow the kid to scream in need be, if you feel your losing your calm.

  139. Eva Colsell says

    My current stroller is less than a year old, and is already wearing thin! This would be perfect for our family!

  140. Thabal says

    We are expecting our first this march and we are excited. My mom has been advising me to enjoy every bit of it, because babies grow so fast, you will miss it!

  141. Brittany says

    Absolutely love Phil & Teds and this stroller is a must – have ! We are due July 27 with baby #2 and unfortunately the stroller from babe#1 wont last until then. This would be amazing to win – and thanks for considering me anyway! Good luck to everyone! :)

  142. Jessica Kirkpatrick says

    My parenting advice is to listen to yourself and the baby. Do what works for you. not what others have told you to do! I was shamed for not having my son sleep in the same room as me when he was born, but it was the best decision for my family to have him in his own crib at night. Listen to yourself!!

  143. Melissa P. says

    Don’t listen to all the advice, there’s no right or wrong way to do things, just what works for you and your family.

  144. Benjamin Spaulding says

    Best advice: “Everyone is different. Don’t feel any need to keep up or meet others’ expectations. This is your child and they are unique and wonderful.

  145. Natalie S says

    Don’t stress over the little things, take everything day by day, enjoy each stage of childhood bc those babies grow up much too fast! Thanks for the chance :)

  146. Tiffany Vides says

    I have heard that this brand of strollers is excellent and now that im expecting a baby why not have whats best for my baby. Would really love to win this amazing giveaway.

  147. Taisha says

    The best parenting advice I’ve heard is to remain calm, even when your baby is screaming and you don’t know what to do. If you’re stressed, your baby feeds off that energy and gets stressed too. Some babies just need to cry it out and that’s okay, just hold your little one until they calm down.

  148. Ashley N says

    My parenting advice is throw out the books, forget what your mother did or your best friend does, do what YOU feel is right for YOUR child!

  149. Vanessa Soqui says

    Don’t stress about the little spills and messes. Enjoy the moments we have with our child/ren, they are only little for so long.

  150. Krista says

    Follow the child: always watch and see where YOUR child is and meet him at his needs. Your child will find always find a way to let you know his needs, so don’t pressure yourself by comparing parent and child to books or other children! And remember to breathe!!! :)

  151. Megan C says

    My favorite parenting advice? Gah, usually it’s unsolicited and snide, lol. Though we once had a pediatric orthopedic surgeon (with my first born – she had hip displaysia at birth) who would ask at every appointment “Are you loving her?” I’d of course answer “yes” and he’d respond “that is what is always most important.”

  152. Cindy Kong says

    Best advice is following your heart. Don’t one can tell you whats right or wrong for your own child. You can read all the books and do all the research but it comes down to what’s right for your own child. Just love your child the way they are and tell them you love them everyday.

  153. Eva says

    Awesome stroller! Best advice I got was to appreciate the good moments, quickly forget the bad, and to sleep whenever I can.

  154. Oksana K says

    best parenting advice is to be consistent in you words and actions! kids are like sponges and they will find that weak spot and use it to their advantage. “NO” means no “YES” means yes! :)

  155. william mundall says

    It’s ok to have fun with your kids…you dont always have to be the “rule maker”!

  156. Sonya Morris says

    Stand up for your kids and go with your instinct because you are the only voice they have.

  157. Brittany says

    Trust your instincts – even when others tell you different. You know your bub best! And everything seems worse at night. Wait until morning and things will never seem as bad :)

  158. Samantha G says

    The house work can wait. I never knew how true those words would be until my little ones came along.

  159. brandi ellison says

    Remember that you can only do what you think is best and enjoy all the time you have with them!

  160. Jen says

    Also, “The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
    For children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
    So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
    I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.”

  161. Heidi BH says

    Well, I’m 38.5 weeks with number one, so no tried and true parenting advice yet! But I do know you should definitely keep in mind the kind of parent you think your partner will be when choosing said partner. I’m so excited to see my hubby be a dad and I know he’ll be amazing. Such a peaceful feeling!

  162. Tawnya Von Schmittou says

    My advice is this, only you know what’s best for your child! Don’t let someone else tell you how to raise them!

  163. Becky VanGinkel says

    Don’t take parenting advice from random people.. especially if they don’t have children of their own! Also, always trust your parental instincts.. they’re usually right!

  164. Lemon_Cupid says

    I can give you parenting advice that worked for me… but every child is different. You’ll be an awesome parent, and you’ll figure it all out – you won’t be the first, and you definitely won’t be the last. Enjoy every precious moment.

  165. Melissa p says

    My best advice was to find one fellow mom to be your go to advisor because if you keep asking everyone you know you’ll get a 100 different answers.

  166. Stacy W says

    Best advice, follow your gut! It’s been working for us and LO turns a year old this month! :)

  167. Anita says

    Trust your gut. Do you what you think is best for your child. Take what others say into consideration but don’t base your decisions on other people.

  168. jasmine says

    you can never tell your child enough how much you love them, how wonderful they are and how proud u are

  169. Colleen Maurina says

    My parenting advise is to cherish each stage of childhood that your children go through and spend as much time with them as you can. Don’t sweat the small stuff and pick your battles. Be consistent and discipline with love.

  170. jessica wilkerson says

    Follow your heart. Everyone’s going to give you advice and tell you what to do and how to do it. Follow your heart,do what you think is best for your child.

  171. says

    I would say: “Try your best, noone is perfect” and mainly remember what and how you were taught, if you can remember that and explain the whys to your kids I think I´d be good. Love them always no matter what, and teach them how to respect other people´s and animal´s lives. There is a saying in my country that goes: “The right in respecting others is peace!”

  172. Naomi says

    Thats the stroller I wanted to buy!! So nice to see its even better and that you have a giveaway!! :)

  173. Erica baty says

    Enjoy your kiddos do lots of family outings outside allow your kids to play and have an imagination. Kids grow up in a blink of an eye :(

  174. Jamie de Guzman says

    Aaaaaah. So in love with this stroller. Hoping and praying to win it!

    Thanks for the chance!

  175. Christine g says

    My advise is to love you child unconditionally, set good examples for him/her, and let them be kids.

  176. Kelly Paquet says

    Breastfeeding is HARD. Reach out and find a support group that you can attend. The Baby Cafe USA has sites across the us and is expanding every month. it really allowed me to meet and exceed my bfing goals.

  177. Christina H says

    Don’t worry too much about having a perfect house. It won’t happen and there’ll always be laundry.

  178. Shosh Schwartz says

    Stop nursing!!! I was miserable nursing my first, but everyone told me it was supposed to hurt, and to keep at it. Turned out I had undiagnosed mastitis. Trust your gut, and if it’s too hard, just stop. I nursed my second and had a wonderful experience, but only regret not stopping earlier with my first. Take care of yourself, and the rest will follow.

  179. Ashlee Baskin says

    Relax when they nap – nap, watch tv, read. Don’t feel like you have to clean, do laundry and cook a you deserve a break too!

  180. Jessica Lodge says

    Don’t compare your parenting skills to other peoples parenting. We are all different and what works for one does not necessarily work for another. It’s great to learn from other parents but at the end of the day only you know what makes you and your family happiest.

  181. Jessica says

    Follow your instincts and do what works for your family. Don’t worry about all the opinions.

  182. Jessica Barnhart says

    love your children for who they are, not who you want them to be, and remember that the days are long, but the years are short

  183. Tracie D says

    My advice is don’t sweat the small stuff. The house may be messy, chores may not be done but your baby is only a baby once. Embrace it, soak it in and take the time to be with them. Everything else can wait and will be there tomorrow.

  184. Jillian V. says

    Don’t look for the parking spot nearest to the store entrance, look for the spot nearest to cart return.

  185. Joy McIvor says

    Enjoy every moment as time passes so quickly. Right down the special little things that you think you will never forget because believe me – you do! Enjoy going walking with your new stroller and show them the flowers, the birds, the trucks, the whatever they want to stop and look at it and pretend you have all the time in the world – like I have being a Nana who would love to win this lovely stroller to do it with!

  186. Beeta says

    My favorite advice is to not worry about cleaning until after bedtime…..time with my baby is too precious and it can wait

  187. Courtney Noll says

    2 things: When your child is quiet… something has to be up! Love, nourish, let them grow, encourage, and instill good values in your child!

  188. Nelly Rodriguez says

    (1) Sleep when the baby sleeps. Everything else can wait. (2) Don’t over-register for “baby stuff”, a lot will go unused. Same goes for clothes. (3) Ask close friends and family members to help (could be in lieu of gifts) by making meals that can be kept in freezer and heated in microwave/stove quickly. This will help keep you and the family fed, especially in the first days/weeks after baby comes home.

    Would so love to win this! We are awaiting our third and need a new one.

  189. Nelly Rodriguez says

    One more piece of advice I got with my first, was in regards to gifts/flowers at the hospital. Ask visitiors (obviously works with close friends and family best) NOT to bring gifts to the hospital during your stay. Instead ask that they bring them to your home or have them delivered there instead. Why? Because when you leave the hospital, YOUR HANDS WILL BE FULL ENOUGH! Between you and, most likely, your husband/partner/spouse, you will be carrying a baby in a car seat, and overnight bag, a “new baby hospital goodie bag”, and if you add to that flowers, gifts etc…. to take home on top of being tired (there is no rest in a hospital-IMO) and possibly feeling pain/discomfort….well, I think you get the picture.

  190. Renae Hansen says

    Don’t sweat the small stuff and remember to take time from the craziness to ENJOY yourself and your kids!

  191. Stacy says

    We just found out we are expecting our first child after trying for over a year! We are over the moon excited and winning this incredible stroller would be an awesome start to preparing for our new bundle!

  192. Bethany Hickner says

    Would love, love to have a new stroller for baby #4. They always get hand-me-downs:).

  193. Cherie says

    I am a mom to be! 3 months to go!! So I have no real advice yet!! I will have to read through the comments to get some! :)

  194. Yoana C. says

    Best advice I can give is don’t be afraid or embarrassed to ask or accept help from others. Having a newborn in the house with a 3 year old autistic son can be stressful so I’ll take all the help I can get.

    This stroller would be a really big help :).

  195. Janilsa Luciano says

    my favorite parenting advice is to have fun with your baby and the best way to do it is to be a kid again!

  196. Cassandra Eastman says

    My favorite advice is just follow your instincts, not everything works the same for every family!

  197. Lori Higgins says

    I would love to win this for my daughter who is due in June. My advice is to enjoy and love your little ones because they grow up so fast.

  198. Raj says

    Its amazing how your world changes when you have a kid. I have such stroller envy. I need this in my life.

  199. Erin andrews says

    My parenting advice is don’t take everyone’s advice to heart, everyone has an opinion on how to raise a child and only you know what is best for you and your family.

  200. Caryn says

    Wow, some great advice already but the one I really want to share is make sure you are in the photos too, no matter what, hair a mess, wrong outfit, don’t like photos, self conscious; one day your children will want to see a photo of you together. Make sure they exist!

  201. Jaileen says

    I’m a first time parent still pregnant but my favorite advice would be to focus on your children, don’t try to multi task and make them feel like they’re an annoyance. I would love to win this!

  202. Maggi S. says

    My best advice is not to take it personally when others try to tell you how to raise your child. Someone else will always have comments…just gotta brush them off your shoulder and do the best job you know how to do :).

  203. AshleyAnne says

    Taking a walk and/or run is my daughter and my favorite thing to do…and when you have a child as strong willed and challenging as mine a walk provides the best medicine for the both of us!!

  204. Ashley h c says

    Never say never to anything you see other parents do with their own children – you are bound to eventually year your words if you do! My example – I will never have a houseful of noisy battery operated toys – oops! Our son loves them.

  205. Somdad says

    Sleep when baby sleeps & don’t worry about the pile of laundry! This looks like a very comfy ride for baby.

  206. Janie M says

    “The days are long, but the years are short”, so true, and it really puts things in perspective.

  207. Stephanie Hansen says

    Relax and enjoy the ride. And to not have any expectations, because parenting is nothing like you expect.

  208. TheresaB says

    I am not yet a parent (expecting in March), so I don’t have any advice yet, but I know this stroller will come in handy when I am!

  209. says

    Great giveaway!! I say breathe and enjoy the moments even when you feel like you “should” be running around doing something else… what we “should” be doing is enjoying our babies!

  210. Terry Maigi says

    My advice would be to enjoy the little things :) they grow SO fast! Housework can wait, the laundry will still be there….. but they are only little once.
    Awesome giveaway!!

  211. Laura Schneider says

    My advice is to trust yourself. There is a lot of advice out there these days; you should take it all in and then make the best decision for you and your family.

  212. Ben C says

    Perfect size for everyday strolling. Would love to win this for my wife due with our first in April.

  213. Jennifer F. says

    I would love to win this stroller. I have 4 kids and I am always looking for something that would make things easier for me when we are all out.

  214. Vivian Irizarry says

    The best parenting advice is sleep when the baby sleep. Thanks for always having amazing giveaway!

  215. Megan M says

    Be a mindful parent – remember that your child is a person too, and should be treated with the same respect you expect them to show you and others. Reduce screen time, and spend some quality time together! What you do will set the example for your child, so be the best person you can be (as my mother always said!).

  216. Stephanie Shaire says

    The strollers I own are in the “budget” or mid-range category. They are fine, but I would have no problem donating those if I won one of these babies!

  217. Jamie Shirlaw says

    As a mom, not every response/answer is instinct, like so many think. I lot of it is trial and error with a little common sense and of course, love!

  218. Amanda Piper says

    Don’t let the “advice” or criticism of non-parents bother you…they haven’t been down your road yet!

  219. Abigail Thomson says

    Do what you’re comfortable with. Do not let others advice intervene with your paternal instinct. Always remember every child is different and some are late bloomers and try not to be discouraged if you feel pressured. Always make room for at least 10 minutes of family play time daily.

  220. Genevieve Oliver says

    I haven’t had my little one yet, but I keep being told, “Sleep when baby sleeps!” and “Trust your gut!”

  221. Katie P says

    Parent blogs, books and magazines are great, doctors are a great resource and teammate, other moms/dads/grandparents/best friends advice should often be considered…but it’s ultimately YOU who knows your baby best. Trust your gut and don’t be afraid to make your voice heard about your little one. YOU are their voice :)

  222. Melissa D says

    You can only have 2 of the following 3 things: A clean house, happy kids, a sane mind
    Choose wisely!

  223. Courtney Gdowski says

    There isn’t a ‘professional mom’. You can’t get all the answers right every time and that’s okay. As long as you love your child with your whole heart, you’ll be the best mom in the entire world.

  224. Alyssa T says

    Best advice is to be with your kids. Your child will remember you being around and they will not care if the house is a mess

  225. becky O. says

    Parenting advice I love to hate is sleep while they sleep as newborns. Its great advice, but I want go have some kind of life eat some lunch or read a magazine, not spend every waking moment tending to a baby so I do try to sleep for some of their naps but not all of them as people suggest! Lol

  226. Kate B. says

    Sleep when Baby sleeps. (Kind of hard right now with a 2 1/2 year old, but when we can all nap at the same time it’s amazing!)

  227. Jenny Hutcherson says

    My advice would be to stay flexible! Know what you want and know what you can bend on when it comes to raising your child. You can have all the organic, Montesorri dreams for your little one, but be happy when CHeezits and Sesame Street makes them happy.

  228. Caly says

    I will give 2 advice. 1: never ever leave your child unattended. 2: First time moms trust in your sixth sense :)

  229. Jenn Kuhn says

    Laugh! A lot! Don’t sweat the small stuff. Just smile and laugh when you turn around and toddler is happily dumping an entire bottle of soy sauce all over the kitchen rug. Life is too short to not find humor in the chaos.

  230. Laura Miller says

    The only advice I ever give is DON’T LISTEN TO ADVICE. People are crazy. Listen to your baby’s needs.

  231. Amy Herman Schroeder says

    best advice is to not listen to ALL advice thrown at you…you learn what is best for you and your baby.

  232. Kylie says

    Trust your instincts, you know your baby better than anyone else and you will know what is right or wrong for you and bubba

  233. ANGIE BECE says

    Laugh often and act goofy around them babies. Life is a rollercoaster and they need to learn to enjoy life to the fullest. EEKS! My 11 month old really needs a stroller of his own. THANKS BABY GIZMO :)

  234. Rachel says

    The best advice I’ve gotten is to not feel the need to defend myself for my parenting choices.

  235. Jennifer Richards says

    Give your child choices and let them win the small battles, spend some time every day playing with your child, revisit your childhood, make time for play fun in your days, these are the memories they will cherish!

  236. Myong says

    My favorite advice was dishes and laundry can wait, babies don’t. Enjoy them as much as you can because the time goes by so fast.

  237. Kimberly Smith says

    Not to worry about the small stuff! Spend every moment you can with the little ones. If your cleaning and they want to play just drop the cleaning and make them happy :)

  238. Amanda H says

    I’ve gotten tons of advice over the years. Most of it unsolicited. Best advice I’ve ever gotten: Find your own way. You will never parent exactly like anyone else.

  239. Danielle Clifford says

    “Do what you feel is best for your baby and laugh a lot!” :-) -best advice ever! Who really sleeps when the baby sleeps? ;-)

  240. Erin S. says

    Trust your “mommy instincts”! You will get lots of advice, but YOU know your baby better than anyone, make the best decisions for you & your baby, not doing or worrying about what well-meaning family, friends & even strangers tell you to do or what they may think about some of your parenting styles or choices.

  241. leah says

    Remember that when your baby cries at night at least you know where they are! It wont always be like that when they are teenagers

  242. Megan K says

    Basically what I always say is, “You’ll laugh about it later.” Haha! And of course, take LOADS of photos!

  243. Violeta V Gill says

    Don’t worry about the nicest most expensive baby clothes all the time. Babies grow quick and ruin clothes easily.

  244. Chani M says

    Best advice would be to take life one day at a time and really enjoy every minute with your kids!!!

  245. Elsa Barrientos says

    I really love this stroller, I can’t wait to take a ride with my beautiful 2 months old little baby :D :D

  246. Juliette Mariano-Carlson says

    Listen to your gut instinct whenever you feel that something is wrong. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

  247. Caitlin G says

    Expecting our first any day now, but I think the advice I’m going to heed the most is don’t sweat the small stuff, especially at the beginning!

  248. Michele Rodocker says

    The best parenting advice I’ve received is remember your childs age and be mindful to treat them appropriately for that age. So when my kid is acting out, I remind myself that he is only 4 and treat him like he is 4 and not expect him to suddenly act like he was 8. Also, as others have said- trust your own instinct and do what’s right for your family.

  249. Kari Barone says

    If you decide to Breastfeed , Stay Strong and Breastfeed On. Lovingly be consistent in your child raising.

  250. Shannon says

    Favorite parenting advice, “Sleep when the baby sleeps”. Yeah right, ain’t nobody got time for that!

    Also, I would love to win this stroller!

  251. Jennifer Kreisler says

    Just remember. YOU. are the mom and nobody is right all of the time. Something might work some times but the next try it night not.

  252. Ashley Woods says

    My favorite parenting advise was that you need to do what feels right for you. Not to stress about feeding/sleeping scedules or decide to use a crib or co-sleep before I had even met my baby or experienced motherhood. I informed myself of my options but in the end I took it one day at a time and did whatever worked best in that moment. Way less stressful!

  253. Nancy says

    I love P&T!! They have helped me through loads of things, but mostly having a 14 mth old when we had our next little one and I was using public transport in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We’re back in the USA now, but I have a soft spot for all things P&T! (And 4 boys at 3,2,1,1)

  254. Ashley says

    I really wish I had listened when everyone told me to nap when she napped and let the housework wait so I could enjoy those infant snuggles

  255. Brittney Hunter says

    Just take things one day at a time. oh, and don’t let the damn mommy blogs make you feel bad. Moms can be mean.

  256. Viviane says

    How amazing it would be taking this stroller to the World Cup and having a new baby on it!!!

  257. mandy f says

    spend as much time with your child and family as you can since you never know what the future holds!

  258. Emily d says

    You cant have everything perfect. The laundry and dishes can wait if your little ones need attention. Also to sleep whenever you can!

  259. Courtney Candlish says

    Time flies when ur having fun. Your children won’t remember if the dishes were washed and laundry was done…your children will remember the time and fun that you shared with them!

  260. Lisa E says

    My favorite advice is to enjoy every moment and milestone that you’re in. Don’t wish for things to speed up or slow down. Appreciate now.

  261. Tiffany H. says

    Take lots and lots of pictures… they’ll grow up before your eyes and some day memories and photos will be all you have left of their younger years.

  262. Celynn Vant Erve says

    One day you will look back and laugh at this moment…
    Sleep when baby sleeps…
    It’s ok to ask for help…
    Follow your instincts…
    Almost every parent feels like they’re failing at some point along the way, as long as your kids tummies and hearts are full you’re doing an awesome job…

  263. Lisa L says

    My best advice is to go with your gut. There are many conflicting pieces of advice out there, so as the parent, you’ve got to do what feels right to you.

  264. Melissa Keranen says

    Take life as it comes. Some days will be easy and you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, others will be hard and you’ll feel like you fell flat on your face, but if you take it as it comes, you’ll get through each day and be proud of what you accomplished, no mater how little or how much you actually got done during the day!

  265. Kimberly Malloy says

    Would love this stroller to keep at my house for my daughter, new niece and my additional future kids.

  266. Wendy Hatton says

    There are some things that just are not important (like dusting stuff or being super neat) so take a deep breath and play with someone instead. Much less stress and screaming all around.

  267. Nurehan Zainal says

    I know i live sooooo far away but i’m in love with this stroller. Would love to have it for my baby… due 2nd october.

  268. Michael Lambert says

    Enjoy every minute you can even though it can get stressful and you will be tired. They grow up so fast, so just cherish every moment.

  269. Laura C says

    Put away your phone/tablet/laptop and give them your full attention when you can. It makes all the difference to them to know we are paying attention to them and interested in them.

  270. Ben C says

    Never take parenthood for granted. It may not be glamorous at times but it is such a miracle that not everybody gets to enjoy.

  271. Christina Strapp says

    I best advice I could ever give is to trust your instincts!! I learned when I trusted my gut, I was usually right. When I first learned to trust my gut with my daughter, it saved her life.

  272. Sonja - Marie Thomassen says

    Make sure to truly give your kids attention, not with the phone or ipad in your hands!

  273. Amy C says

    I would say follow your gut and stand up for what YOU want for your child! Don’t let others tell you how to parent your child, just because they don’t believe in your style of parenting.
