Oh my god, what a wonderful invention! After 3 months of having my daughter permanently attached to me I bought a bumbo and finally had two hands again. Maybe it was the fact that she didn't crawl and was a late walker but this really did help day to day. I think the fact that the child can sit up independently in it makes them much more content. It was also great when I started weaning - she was still too young for a high chair so this was a fab go between. It is light enough to take with you if visiting people and I even made use of it in the garden. It was ideal to have in the kitchen when I was cooking and know she was out of harms way but still with me. It may not be for everyone but I think it depends on the baby - I know lots of mums that have used them and been really impressed.
We bought this for our daughter when she was 8 months old. She is now aged 2 and a half she still plays with it! When she was younger it gave her great support and she would happily toddle from one side of the room to the other (the downside being she would bash into the wall and we would have to turn her and the walker around so she could bash into the opposite wall). I am not sure that it helped her to walk unaided - she didn't walk on her own until she was 16 months - but it did give her confidence and I am sure it helped her balance. The great thing about this walker is that you can take the activity station off the front which can then be carried around and played with on it's own. It is now helping her with her a,b,c, etc.
This really is a comfortable, efficient airport. After 11 days sunning ourselves the last thing we wanted was to hang around an airport with little money and a restless, tired 2 year old. What a pleasant suprise we had! The queues really weren't very long but moved quickly anyway. All the staff were polite and helpful and the whole place seemed to run like clockwork. There is a good selection of duty free and gift shops (a bit pricey but then the whole of Menorca was). There are also plenty of places to eat - whether you just want a sandwich or push the boat out and have Burger King. Oh, and there is an outside lounge for the smokers amongst us! Our baggage and buggy made it back safe and sound, too. How much nicer travelling would be if more of our airports (and foreign ones) were like this.
I bought the Obaby Atlas Stroller just to use on holiday and for the days that hubby picks our daughter up from the childminder. It is a great pushchair - reclines back quite far (she has been known to sleep for 3 hours in it and she is 2 years old so not so small!) It is very lightweight and easy to push - even one-handed. It has survived a trip to Majorca and a trip to Menorca and has prompted me to sell my beloved pram as it does everything we need. There is a handy little basket underneath and you can put some lightweight shopping on the handles. It folds easily and takes up hardly any room in the boot and can be carried by a handle on the side if need be. I dread the day she insists on walking and I have to start carrying my shopping again!
I absolutely loved my Trenton Deluxe - it really did have everything I needed. As a newborn my daughter was very cosy and secure in the carrycot and being able to easily clip the carseat onto the pram was a godsend when I didn't want her to wake up! The whole system was very sturdy but at the same time very easy to push - no problem pushing it one-handed around the supermarket whilst carrying a basket. Once she was old enough to sit upright in the pram there were several settings depending how "upright" she needed to be and a playtray for drinks, snacks, etc. If she (ever) fell asleep sitting up I could easily lay the pram back down flat without disturbing her. There was also a nice sized shopping basket underneath. If there is any downside I would say the pram is quite heavy - I wouldn't want to be lifting it on and off of buses but it was no problem getting it in and out of the boot. And, after all that use, it still had a great re-sale value!
