When I worked in sales we used to say that if somebody had a good meal they told 3 people and if they had a bad one they told 10. I feel the same goes for customer service. With that in mind I wanted to take the time to say thank you to UPPAbaby for being awesome.
To start at the beginning I did more research on strollers than practically anything else in my life…more than my wedding dress! I felt that it was a major investment and something I was planning on using a lot and for a long time. My husband was a big fan of the City Mini GT (it would seem lots of celebrities like it too as Miranda Kerr and Ivanka Trump have been spotted pushing this stroller around New York). It is perfect for city life, compact and it can be closed with one hand which is helpful when holding baby and negotiate apartment doors.
When a friend gave us a Baby Jogger it made me question whether the City Mini still made sense for us. So we returned to our local baby store, again, and this time we were not leaving without a stroller! It was actually two comments by one of the staff at Isis that pushed us over the edge. She was actually a City Mini owner and a fan but did say that the basket of the Vista was huge and perfect for shopping (which it is!) and secondly her son is constantly pulling himself forward in the City seat. The Vista seat can be rear or forward facing AND is adjustable. I have found this so useful when Hugh falls asleep in the stroller; I tip the seat back so his head/neck are comfortable.
I had two other reasons that I was willing to spend this much money on a stroller (it is in the top 5 most expensive thing I have ever purchased). It came with a bassinet which is safe for overnight sleeping. If my son actually slept anywhere besides on me when he was a baby this is what I was planning on using. I have met a lot of people, especially those in cities, who have used this as their crib for months!
