The Snap Duo2 is simple and compact to fold. Not to mention it has standing fold. It folds inwards, so the seat fabric is that clean protected. You do not need to worry as if it popped up behind you because of an automatic lock when it is folded. It is also equipped with convenient shoulder carry strap & safety tether strap. So, it will get you to wherever you need to go in a Snap, whether for airline travel, in and out of the car or just getting around town.

Valco baby snap Duo 2 features very generous, individually adjustable canopies with a mesh peek-a-boo window. They can be extended to a full size by using a zipper.  There are also other larger mesh peek-a-boo windows on the back top of the seat. It can be opened for ventilation. Rain cover is included in the kit.

Unfortunately, the Valco snap Duo2 handlebar is non-adjustable, which may be less convenient for petite women. The seats are roomy and padded with 5 point safety harness. Each seat holds up to 44 pounds. They even have one touch flat reclines that make the Snap Duo2 suitable for infants. The seats are equipped with individual belly bars with gate-opening. They also have foot rests that can be adjusted individually. If you would like to use the stroller as a travel system, you can purchase car seat adapters.

In terms of storage, not to mention it has a large seat underneath storage basket for toys, groceries and more. It is even easily accessible.  So, you can get in and out any big item. Never worry about getting flats! The Snap Duo2 has foam tires that glide well over reasonably smooth surfaces. It is not an all terrain stroller, but is best used for regular city side walks.

You can quickly release the tires for storage. But, if you have no desire for foam tires, the Snap Duo2 offers you the option of exchanging the rubber wheels for air filled and all-terrain wheels. Of course, the all-terrain wheels will cost you more. And, it will also put on some extra weight on your stroller. It all depends on your personal preference, somehow. Furthermore, the stroller has a foot brake that provides safety for baby & mommy’s pedicure while strolling.

Baby Health Care: 9 Important Things Parent Should Know

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. A child is indeed the heart of his parents. His health is the priority right from the very beginning of their life. It is the primary responsibility of his parents to provide him with the best cares days and nights. We all know that health is a long-term investment of life, and it is not made of money. Thus, caring the health of a baby must always be kept in mind. Parents will do everything for the sake of their baby’s health. They can start caring the baby by themselves. And probably, they also need the assistance of a health professional.

In order that parents can provide the best health care for their baby, there are some important things they should know.

  1. If you are a new parent of a newly-born baby, you should know at least how to handle your baby. You can ask some health care people in the hospital to coach you.
  2. Most of the time, you will have to hold your baby. Make sure that you give your baby support from top to bottom because his neck muscles are not strong enough to support the weight of his head, yet.
  3. If you have your baby’s umbilical cord is yet to fall, you should make sure that it is always kept dry and clean. Apply oils or creams prescribed by your doctor to keep it out of infection.
  4. Make sure you have put him down on his back when he falls asleep because it will minimize SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
  5. Do not shake your baby because in addition to potentially hurting him, it will give his brain a bashing which can cause short- or even long-term damage.
  6. Always choose the best natural products for your baby because natural substances are more skin-friendly and harmless than synthetic chemical ones (e.g. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Triethanolamine, PEG 80 / Sorbital Laurate, or Lauramide DEA). You even can do some research about baby care, or consult your doctor for proper advice on it because many internet resources do not provide accurate information.
  7. Do not forget that the very basic things of baby’s health care are his nutrition and cleanliness. Make sure that all wastes from every itsy-bitsy parts of his body has been removed and cleaned.
  8. Instead of the cleanliness of your own baby, you also have to make sure that you have provided him with a safe and clean environment.
  9. The last thing to remember, a baby is still weak and feeble. He is potential to get sick easily. Thus, you should always pay attention to any signs which potentially indicates that your baby is not healthy, such as continuously crying, improper sleeping, eating insufficiently, having a dull face, not playful, not active, behaving abnormally and several small things like this.
