UPPAbaby MESA; How We Roll With Three

Hands down the number one question I have been asked since having my third child is

“so how is it having three?”

Quite often I let out a sigh, roll my eyes or give them the you don’t even want to know look before answering. Let’s be honest, people are always asking me this while we are out and most of the time while it’s just me and the kids and that can be hectic.

So there you go, three kids can be / is hectic. BUT it’s a good kind of hectic. We all have those days, the bad ones, the crazy ones, the really good ones, whether we have one, two or three kids, we all have them and I wouldn’t change my little crew of three for anything in the world.

The big difference from two kids to three kids for me has been our schedule. When Everett was born, Hazel was only two and we didn’t have any commitments, it was luxurious. Now with Hazel being five, Everett being three we are out of the house for school drop and preschool offs every single day. Add in after school activities and your usual groceries, family outings, etc we are BUSY.

UPPAbaby MESA; How We Roll With Three

Call me crazy but the one thing that is saving my bacon since becoming a mom of three is my car seat, the UPPAbaby MESA. Haha yes, you read that right, my car seat. You know that we are a tried and true UPPAbaby family, I’ve shared before (here and here) about how our stroller has grown with us as our family has grown, and well once again it’s grown with us.

When Hazel and Everett were both babies our bucket seat was not made by UPPAbaby, therefore when it came to attaching it to the stroller it meant adding an adapter, aka another item I had to bring with me. It meant one more thing taking up trunk space, taking up another second of my time as I attached and unattached it so that we could go from car to stroller and back. It most definitely was easier than transferring a sleeping baby from carseat to stroller and back, no one wants to do that, but it wasn’t ideal. Since Everett was born UPPAbaby came out with their very own infant bucket seat,  the UPPAbaby MESA. And let me tell you guys, as a mom of three, this thing is heaven sent! 

Not only is it narrow enough that I can fit all three kids across the backseat, (tried and tested in a car, SUV and truck) but I simply pop it out of the car, click into the stroller and we are rolling. No adapters to fuss with, nothing. If Everett is feeling tired and wants to ride in the stroller, I can still attach the rumble seat for him.  And if Hazel chooses to join as well on the PiggyBack it allows me to fit ALL three kids on the stroller! The configurations I can have with all three kids and the UPPAbaby MESA on the stroller are endless, you can see more here,it truly is a life saver as a mom of three!
