  • Years ago, I remember a comedian had a routine about first time parents getting minivans. She was like, is your baby a giant?

    At the time, I was laughing at the joke and agreeing... HOWEVER.... now that we have a little one on the way, we realized our tiny car has room at the back for a baby or a stroller but certainly not both. So now we're looking to upgarde to a mommy-mobile. I still have mixed feelings about the whole thing.

  • I still don't like the look of minivans although I agree with everyone who says they are more roomy and comfortable. We've always had SUV's.

  • I also didnt like them, buts it made sense w/ two kids w/ strollers and such. I honesty love mine and prob will buy another. They ride very nice and I doesnt feel like Im driving a van at all. I love the space and storage.

  • We had a Ford Taurus until three kids. It was fine to fit all of our needs. We made many long trips in that car and it fit everything. Then we moved up to the minivan when we had our third child and I LOVE MY MINIVAN! I think it's kind of overkill for one child. There's really plenty of room in a car for one child and all of his/her gear. But after that, it really is nice to have the extra room with two or more kiddos, though it was fine with our first two to have the sedan. Three kids would be a stretch and I'd think would be stretching the safety guidelines in a sedan.

  • We have a tiny hatchback and no trunk. We tried putting a folded up stroller and it takes the whole back seat. So it looks like three adults and the baby and the stroller will just not fit. We've been thnking about Mazda 5, which is not classified as a minivan but reallyy... it is lol.
