REAL MUM REVIEW: The Thule Urban Glide - all round sports stroller for the active family

Choosing the perfect pram for what you need it for is a big task; it's recommended that you go to every baby store and take each and every pram for a stroll around the shop. The shop assistant asks you how it feels; you go for another walk. You feel the way it moves around the corners of the shop, you see how it brakes, how it folds, how it pops up and measure how it would fit in your car. You take into account the recommendations from any Mummy friends and you are on the quest for finding the perfect pram for you, out of the selection that the shop has. The shop assistant tells you to go with what stroller you feel is right for you. It's an exciting thing; pram shopping, because you know that you are going to put your perfect little baby into that brand new purchase when it arrives. 

For me, I wanted something I could exercise with, a stroller that was comfortable for baby, easy to manoeuvre, light weight and fit easily and out of the car. I wanted it to be comfortable for walking with every day. I can tell you, if the Thule Urban Glide was around in that first shop I walked into; I can honestly say it would of been my first purchase. I have been road testing the Thule Urban Glide for the past month and it is so easy to use. Designed by prestige Swedish brand; Thule, my husband was very impressed that they have brought out such an amazing pram. He loves their roof racks!!!! We love that the lightweight Urban Glide has been built by the best and can handle the toughest conditions, keeping you and your child safe. 

The best part of the Thule Urban Glide is definitely how light it is, it surprised me when I went to pick it up and put it in my car, its looks so hardy and sturdy but it is so light and this excites me now that I'm pregnant again and also with a newborn soon after the birth, I don't want to be lifting a heavy pram in and out of the car every time I need to go anywhere. As mums, we need to do things one handed, the way this stroller folds up is also very impressive. A lot of sports style strollers are hard to fold up and need 2 hands, this makes the Thule Urban Glide different as it's so easy to fold up with one hand, you really need to try it yourself to believe it.

It really is so easy to manoeuvre with it's great handle and steering capabilities. The back wheels are great for walking and jogging as they are a great size with great suspension for hopping over bumps and off road so baby isn't bounced around too much but it is also slim enough to stroll comfortably in and around the shops. It also has a handy extra-large zippered storage compartment plus additional mesh pockets, another feature that I absolutely LOVE. It's a huge compartment and I can be seen regularly power walking up to the shops and filling this storage space up with groceries.

We also love it's sleek look and stylish design. I really can't fault anything at all as I really enjoy using this stroller daily. The straps put safety first as it hugs around the child and is padded for comfort. It's smooth to use and both my 2 year old and 4 year old can fit in it well and with comfort and I'm excited for use it a lot as I get more active again in the attempt to loose the baby weight when the new baby comes. 

What we love about the Thule Urban Glide
