BOB Revolution Pro Stroller

Is baby waking you up before dawn? Now that spring has finally sprung (yay 70-degree weather and longer, sunnier days!), it’s time to fold up your umbrella stroller and get running with a high-tech jogging stroller. Not only will it keep you in shape, it will also be a great bonding experience with baby.

BOB knows a thing or two about jogging strollers. After all, BOB was once dubbed “Beast of Burden” and has been creating tough-as-nails outdoor gear since 1994. That includes sport utility strollers that have tackled the toughest of terrains. Thirteen years later, the 2016 feature-laden Revolution Pro keeps parents’ adventures going.


The Revolution Pro is the most deluxe all-terrain stroller that the brand carries. From a hand-activated, rear drum brakes to keep you in control to a front wheel that swivels to maneuver the tightest of corners and that locks to pass through rougher trails -- the Revolution Pro has all the features a runner needs for a ride that’s as smooth as butter. Plus, the handlebar is adjustable, making it the perfect fit for parents of all heights.

But don’t think that BOB only had the runner in mind when designing the new Revolution Pro. The sturdy, versatile pram makes an even comfier ride for baby. It boasts a huge canopy to shade the sun away, a wide padded seat and two mesh side pockets to keep your little one’s most prized possessions right by him. What’s more, if baby needs to snooze after probing the world you’re jogging through, you can now quickly and seamlessly lay the seat back with just the squeeze of a button thanks to the one-hand recline adjustment -- a simple, but notable upgrade from the previous model.

Not much of a runner? Don’t shy away from the Revolution Pro. Its air-filled tires and shocks make it the perfect match for hikers and city dwellers alike. No longer will you need to worry about the stroller tipping over when going over potholes and uneven sidewalks. And once winter comes back, you’ll be able to brave the snow with aplomb.

Since you can’t run with baby until he is six to eight months old, the Revolution Pro is compatible with various infant car seats, which you can attach using the BOB adapter (sold separately). And as if you needed more convincing, the underseat cargo, which is deeper than its predecessor, lets you haul everything you need on your daily commute.

These are the best bath time products you can get for under $20

These budget-friendly products really make a splash.

With babies and toddlers, bath time is about so much more than washing off: It's an opportunity for fun, sensory play and sweet bonding moments—with the added benefit of a cuddly, clean baby afterward.

Because bathing your baby is part business, part playtime, you're going to want products that can help with both of those activities. After countless bath times, here are the products that our editors think really make a splash. (Better yet, each item is less than $20!)

Comforts Bath Wash & Shampoo

Comforts Baby Wash & Shampoo

Made with oat extract, this bath wash and shampoo combo is designed to leave delicate skin cleansed and nourished. You and your baby will both appreciate the tear-free formula—so you can really focus on the bath time fun.

Munckin Soft Spot Bath Mat

Munchkin slip mat

When your little one is splish-splashing in the bath, help keep them from also sliding around with a soft, anti-slip bath mat. With strong suction cups to keep it in place and extra cushion to make bath time even more comfortable for your little one, this is an essential in our books.

Comforts Baby Lotion

For most of us, the bath time ritual continues when your baby is out of the tub when you want to moisturize their freshly cleaned skin. We look for lotions that are hypoallergenic, nourishing and designed to protect their skin.

The First Years Stack Up Cups

When it comes to bath toys, nothing beats the classic set of stackable cups: Sort them by size, practice pouring water, pile them high—your little one will have fun with these every single bath time.

Comforts Baby Oil

Sorry, you can’t meet our baby yet

Thank you for understanding. ❤️

In just over three weeks, we will become parents. From then on, our hearts will live outside of our bodies. We will finally understand what everyone tells you about bringing a child into the world.

Lately, the range of emotions and hormones has left me feeling nothing short of my new favorite mom word, "hormotional." I'm sure that's normal though, and something most people start to feel as everything suddenly becomes real.

Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.


I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.

Becoming a mother has been life-changing. It's been hard, tiring, gratifying, beautiful, challenging, scary and a thousand other things that only a parent would ever understand.

It is these life-changing experiences that have inspired me to draw my everyday life as a stay at home mom. Whether it's the mundane tasks like doing laundry or the exciting moments of James', my baby boy's, first steps, I want to put it down on paper so that I can better cherish these fleeting moments that are often overlooked.

Being a stay-at-home-mom can be incredibly lonely. I like to think that by drawing life's simple moments, I can connect with other mothers and help them feel less alone. By doing this, I feel less alone, too. It's a win-win situation and I have been able to connect with many lovely parents and fellow parent-illustrators through my Instagram account.
