As moms we are always looking for ways to simplify our busy lives. Especially when we are entering the stage of having a new baby. Between deciding what items we really need for our never-ending baby registry, to setting up a nursery, and just figuring out how a new bundle of joy will fit into our lives in general–it can be overwhelming, really overwhelming.
So every once in a while a game changer comes around that really makes you feel like you have your lyfe together. And no that’s not a typo, it’s the Lyfe, The gb Lyfe Travel System. Almost a year ago I was introduced to this stroller and couldn’t believe my eyes. gb, which is a new and internationally recognized brand for parents, has now brought their line of innovative and stylish baby products to the US. Their products feature a modern, global design aesthetic that set the stage for a world of possibilities. They are made with premium materials and distinctive details to fit seamlessly with your lifestyle and are made to last.
gb has created this travel system that includes a an infant car seat which attaches to the stroller base as well as interchangeable seat that converts to a pram for when your baby is an infant, and then to a rear or forward-facing seat. Transforming 4 different ways The gb Lyfe offers the luxury of European-style strollers, converting into a pram for all of the ease-of-use and stylish looks that gb can offer in a very compact travel system all for the affordable price of $379.99–GAME CHANGER!
Let’s start with the car seat and base that are included. We all know leaving the hospital you must have an infant car seat installed in order to take your baby home. By adding this travel system to your registry you will already have your car seat and base ready to go. It includes the, gb ASANA 35 Infant Seat. It has a Fit Loc™ Protection System that helps to provide an easier installation. This way you will have that peace of mind leaving the hospital and through the next year or so knowing your baby is protected and riding in one of the safest car seats available. It holds a baby from 4 to 35 pounds which should provide most babies use through their first year.
Once you have your car seat and base securely installed in the car you can easily snap the seat into the stroller frame. The entire system is really lightweight so it makes it easy to transport your sleeping in and out of the car without having to remove them from the car seat.
As a Florida mom, taking walks in our beautiful weather is always a must with our little one for a breath of fresh air. This is where the European-style pram comes into play. The gb Lyfe includes a convertible stroller seat that converts into a full size pram (or known to some as a bassinet) where the baby can lie down peacefully protected by the expandable canopy shield. I love the stylish element this adds to the stroller for such an affordable price.
Now once your baby is a little older and able to sit up the pram converts into a seat. The best part about this is that the seat can be turned to be rear-facing or forward-facing still offering a four-position recline option if your little one needs a nap. This seat has a removable arm bar providing a convenient place for your little one to rest his or her hands. securing baby with a 5-point harness.
And what about mom you ask? Usually when we are in the market for a stroller it’s not always about the baby because we want to make sure there is plenty storage opportunity for shopping and features that make lyfe a little easier when out on the town with our little. The gb Lyfe has us covered with a nicely-sized storage basket underneath. This is really important for moms who may be looking for a stroller to take to the mall, a quick run to a grocery store or a day out at the park enjoying a picnic. It offers access from the front of the stroller to which is extremely convenient. The travel system also includes a cup holder conveniently placed on the side of the handle bar so there is no need to purchase an additional accessory–it’s all included! Mom win!!!
As far as conveniently storing it, the stroller is easy to fold with a two-handed, one-step process and features a self-standing design. So you won’t have to worry about removing wheels the seat to nicely pack it away.
Overall I know this stroller is a win for moms who want a safe, functional and stylish travel system that will grow with your baby through the years! You can visit gb’s website here to learn more or purchase it at Babies”R”Us here in the Charcoal or Merlot colors.
