The stroller is cute but sold for $900 - $1,200.. No one I know would have one. As for the sleep clothes from Target, my daughter just grew out of one of them & I got rid of it.

I heard about the stroller one yesterday. What is it about spending $1,000 on a stroller? I hear there is good resale value, because evidently a lot of people want them. I actually saw that in a baby shower registry once.
