This Doona Car Seat/ Stroller rocks my world! Off to Berlin …

Most people get heart palpitations at the idea of traveling alone with a newborn. They think it’s an absurd idea to take a newborn to the Berlin Fashion Week … but, I like to challenge the conventional thinking of appropriate outings with our little one πŸ˜‰ She’s too young for Disney World, but she loves the high-pitched Kardashians screeching “Darling, you look FABulous!”, so I think she’ll fit right in.

The amount of preparation and planning that goes into traveling with a newborn would cause even the most organized OCD sufferer to break into a mild sweat. Running through airports with too much hand luggage and having to clean up a blow-out poo (newborns have the tendency to soil themselves entirely with explosive poos especially when they’re doing name calls for final passengers to board and you’re on that list) is not a walk in the park. My main concern with this trip is that I would not be able to single-handedly carry a stroller, car seat, suitcase and handluggage into a train carriage and taxi and some airlines only check in either a stroller or a carseat free of charge and then you’re forking out extra for an essential part of safe travel with a baby.

And then the good folks from Simple Parenting invented the Doona! I am absolutely amazed that someone did not think about this incredible piece of equipment earlier. With the click of a button, one of the safest carseats on the market becomes a stroller that is very easy to use and stylish looking too – so ideal for our Fashion Week expedition.

If you’d like to find out more about all the incredible safety features and stand a chance of winning a R7000 Doona, like their facebook siteΒ Doona FacebookΒ  and enter here Doona Competition link

All the traveling parents from Roger Federer to Shakira to Princess Charlene and Prince Albert have them for their little ones. It makes sense too as it frees up valuable space in the boot for suitcases and shopping.

I shopped for my one on an awesome baby shopping siteΒ Babarazzi run by a mompreneur, Carmen Peters, who is due soon with her third baba! She waxed lyrical about it!!! And good luck, Carmen with your new little bundle of joy.

Also, congrats to all our winners thus far from our giveaways:

  • Sarah who won the Medela Pump – our biggest giveaway to date
  • Marisa Calvert who wins R500
  • Bianca Hector who wins the getaway with Village ‘n Life to Hermanus

Keep visiting Modern Mommy for our journey updates and more fabulous giveaways.

Lots of love and Light,

Jo-Ann

    What an awesome piece of must have baby equipment! How I wish I had this with my first baby. Trips to do grocery shopping and other errands would have been much easier! I hope to have one of these when my second baby arrives! What a great invention Doona!

    Wow what an invention. Would love for my little darling princess to tour in this. A first born deserves only the very best. Bit of struggle being a single mom but would love this. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I love the whole idea of travelling with baby to new places never thought off.
    Sounds like something I would do. You make me realize that I need to distress when it comes to travel with kids.

    Awesome website, A great follower.

    Wow Modern Mommy you are bold and courageous. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart to travel with a tiny person. My son is 7 weeks and I rethink going to the mall *blushing* Thank you Doona for thinking about us mommies wow… the best invention since sliced bread.

    I’m a new mommy to be and traveling with a newborn still remains one of my greatest fears. I still haven’t bought a car seat nor a stroller but this Doona car seat/stroller looks so convenient and easy to use not to mention gorgeous!!
    I hope this will be my little girl’s welcome gift to the world and mine to motherhood.

    It’s amazing how things change and evolve. From a big pram to such a handy easy to use travel system. Would love this seeing that my first born refuses to pass her pram to her 3month old brother. Xxx
