Car Seats & Strollers

When did you forward face your child?

Thoughts on when to turn your child forward-facing in the car? My son just turned two and is 30lbs. Some people are acting like I’m ridiculous for still having his rear-facing, but I just want him to be safe. When did you turn your babies around?

Do they make car seats for parents who have limited mobility with their hands?

Do they make car seats for parents who have limited mobility in their hands? I’ve slowly been losing mobility in my hands, particularly my right, but my symptoms are the same for both hands. Pain when lifting things, sudden electrical shock type feeling where my middle finger meets the palm of my hand, numbness in my pinky, ring, and middle finger, and I’m losing the ability to grasp items. I’ve had MRI and nerve tests done, and all have come back normal, so doctors are stumped as to why it’s occurring, and it’s not carpal tunnel as symptoms came on at the same time for both hands.

She wants to know what the best double stroller options are (and is also taking advice on any other products parents of twins should have). Over on the Mamas Uncut Facebook page, our robust community of moms is always having a conversation about topics that matter. We like to highlight those conversations from time to time. Important mom questions. Thoughtful mom answers. Let’s hear from the community! A member of the Mamas Uncut Facebook community asks: So big news just came to my family… We’re having twins! Our first! Lol. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for the best double strollers? Also taking suggestions for ANY products moms of twins should have, but especially looking to lock down a good stroller for twins. (BTW, we live in a big city, so the smaller/more portable the better.) Thank you! – Mamas Uncut Community Member And with that, the community rushed in with some great recommendations!
