Buying a stroller is one of the most important things you do before your baby arrives. We see what our friends have and read endless reviews to see which one is the best one... or the one that looks the prettiest. Thing is, One size doesnt fit all. Every stroller is made for a different kind of person, lifestyle and use.
As I used to live in Oslo, I noticed most people had a Stokke. So of course my first choice was to get a Trailz. But I dont live in Oslo, or in Norway. I live in Berlin... I dont go through the woods for long strolls anymore or battle the thick snow every winter. My problems now are from jumping in and out of a crowded train, fitting in between a mass of impatiente people to being able to fit inside a tiny restaurant of Café.
I noticed that 50% of my daily bad mood came from my stroller. It was too big for the city, too hard to maneuver, too bulky for my lifestyle. As a food blogger, I need to get in to tiny places, small restaurants and small stores, and taking in an out a sleeping baby, is not fun for her or me.
So I changed to Bugaboo Cameleon. And then is when I noticed this is the stroller I needed. Simple things like the size of it, the weight of it and how easy I can jump in and out of a train or underground. The versatility to take the place of a chair in any stablishment, the fact that you can push it with no effort at all.
But it is not only the comfort of this stroller what makes it special, but the optics as well. I got a military-inspired bugaboo cameleon by Diesel in a dark green anodized chassis and is complemented by an all-over green canvas. not to mention the soft black leather details.
It just fits my style, And the cool thing is, you can change the optics of the stroller in a second. Get an extra canpy or another footmuff like I did, I can change the style from Black to sunny Off-White of bright days.
One of my favorite parts of this stroller is the Hand Break. You have no idea how many shoes and sneakers I ruined during the first 6 months of Pepa, Including a pair of Rose Special Edition Nike NB. But now I have a break I can easily reach with my hand. No more dirty shoes, no more leather breakage!! Just the best for Shoe Lover like Myself.
So I went on this Autumn Day out for a stroll with my Pal and Photographer Fabian and he made me look good in a Berlin Grey Day while sipping coffee and talking about the kids, photography and parenthood. You should follow his instagram account as well.

I know I know that many parents are against publishing pictures of their kids, and believe me, It took me a while to make this decision. I decided to make Pepa an instagram account with all her outfits and pictures with important people on her life. Like an album in the old days. Only beautiful pictures, happy pictures and nothing she will look back and be mad at me for posting.
If you use instagram and love kids fashion, you should def follow her, and see how she dresses everyday.
Pepa Carlota was born 10 days before she was expected, I guess she was dying to meet me. 3500 gr and 50 cm with dark brown eyes, like mine: Deer Like. This is why this blog is called Deer Mommy.
Its about me, Pepa and our life together. About me as a mom, a single mom living in Berlin with a huge heart for my little fawn Pepa.
I'm Andrea - a food enthusiast and blogger. Recently I noticed I have been answering a lot of questions about what I buy for my daughter Pepa, or what are my thoughts in certain "mom stuff". This is how I realised I should start a blog about being mom.. Or "Mom" like me! I hope to share my thoughts, amazing, things I buy and amazing recipes with other moms, just like me!
