I wanted to reach out to share our happiness with our recent purchase of two Doona strollers for our 8-month-old twin daughters. My wife and I recently planned a trip from Atlanta to Seattle with our twins to hike Olympic National Park. We were quite nervous about flying/traveling with them for the first time, especially across the country for a trip that requires a lot of driving to then go hiking…
We happened to go to Buy Buy Baby’s website a couple days before our departure and learned about Doona. We wished we had heard about your product sooner as we would’ve bought these prior to their birth… We already had nice, top quality car seats and strollers, but decided to overnight two Doona’s to make sure we could use them on our trip.
We can’t thank you enough for this amazing product. As you can see in the attached pictures, our girls love them… as do me and my wife. They make traveling with twins a breeze. Transitioning them in and out of the car repeatedly at lookouts, for short hikes, etc. was so easy. Our Doona’s made this trip our best ever. We can say that without a doubt, without them, there would’ve been much more chaos at the airport, interrupted sleep, and fussy babies 😉

Hi, we are happy owners of your car seat. Doona is the best thing we purchased. I do not say this lightly. We travel every weekend either flying or driving for skiing and we have a small convertible sports car. It saves up a lot of space and it eases everything (including strolling on snow – see picture!). I hope Simple Parenting will continue bringing good products to the market.
Thanks for your awesome product, we love it.

Just a quick note to say I absolutely love my Doona. It makes doing the school run a breeze with a 4.5 year old and a 3 week old.
My son has a raised platform up to his classroom and the ability to fold the Doona at ease and carry it in is absolutely brilliant. My 4.5 year old also loves being able to push his brother along due to the low handle height.

I was first introduced to Simple Parenting when my best friend purchased the Doona for her newborn daughter. You would have thought I had just witnessed the most amazing creation in the history of babies! I was in AWE! To that point, I had been a loyal Orbit Baby customer. Without exaggerating, we own 21 components of the “simple travel system” which practically require their own garage.
I am expecting baby 3 in a few weeks and will be upgrading from the Orbit system to the Doona. My older children (ages 3 & 5) are in two different schools and the new baby will be accompanying me to drop off/pickup every day. The thought of folding and unfolding a stroller or lugging the impossibly heavy Orbit car seat 5-6 times a day is just too much. Instead, I’m dreaming of popping the Doona out of the base, releasing those beautiful wheels and getting on my way!

Yes, I dare to call you family because our Doona has become a valuable member of our family. I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for the amazing product you have created! We absolutely love the Doona. We take it everywhere with us, we use it every day and dread the moment our baby outgrows it. The Doona simply makes our lives so much easier and gives us the opportunity to actually enjoy our time as new parents, the true definition of your slogan ‘simple parenting’. We bought our Doona in May of 2016 and were one of the first ones on the streets of Long Island City, New York to use it. I have recommended it as the number ONE item every new parent should have! No questions. You make my life easier. You make my life exciting and possible. We take the Doona everywhere. It makes almost everything possible! Thank you!
PS I hope you come up with other products soon, especially a continuation for older kids

Simply put the Doona changed my life.
2 days before moving to India with my 4 month old I saw someone walking down the street and get into a taxi with a Doona. It was love at first site and I had to have it. I immediately went to my nearest baby gear store and bought it on the spot. Now, almost 3 years later, I am using it with my second child and it is still in pristine working condition (even lent it to my sister-in-law in between) and it is as on point and relevant as ever. We are an expat family who travels the world for work and the Doona is still to date the best purchase I ever made and continues to make our life as a family 10x easier. I cannot say enough about it that I even started stopping new moms on the street who I see pulling a car seat and snap n go out of their car to demonstrate how much easier their lives could be. If that’s not enough to sell you on one of the greatest mommy inventions of all time, when I did have a slight wheel issue in the early days their customer service was barre none. They immediately brought me into their show room, fixed the problem right away, and it hasn’t been an issue ever since. In the course of my motherhood I have owned 3 cribs, 5 strollers, and 4 car seats and if I could do it all over again I would have bought the Doona and nothing else for the first 6-12m and then added a lightweight stroller later on. In today’s day and age where everything, especially motherhood is so hard, anything that can make it even a fraction easier is worth every cent. It is something that will stay with you and last through all of your children. What are you waiting for??

I wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much we are enjoying our DOONA car seat. We had our first baby in April and it has been our most well used and loved baby gear so far!
Before my son Breck arrived, I did an internet search for “the best car seat for traveling”. I am a professional ski racer and travel most of the winter in Europe and thus we needed something that would be good in cars, buses, trains, and airports. The DOONA came up as the top hit and we decided to get one.
We have had such a pleasant experience with the DOONA and get tons of compliments everywhere we go. We find ourselves dropping into car seat mode often to show strangers how great the whole system works. In fact, the other day the Captain on our Delta flight stopped us on the way out of the airplane and wanted to hear all about the car seat. So we gave him a demonstration. What a wonderful invention, thank you!

Hi. This is the greatest car seat ever, but let me tell you how great is it. My ex-wife hates me and everything related to me. She hates every effort or help that I could give to our daughter.
Even so, she loved the Doona. She loved so much that she asked to use it. Now she is with my car seat, so our daughter can use all the time. That’s how great it is, you make the impossible happen! Everywhere I go, all the people get amazed about it.

Thank you so much #doona for engineering not only an amazingly convenient car seat/stroller but also making it SUPER SAFE! My wife and 8 month old son were in a major collision yesterday and happy to report my son came away from it unscratched. I believe the Doona is what made the difference, we just ordered a new replacement. Couldn’t be happier with our purchase. THANKS AGAIN DOONA!

We were driving down a 30 mph road and a car was turning right so we had slowed down. The driver of the car two cars behind us had taken his eyes off the road and had not seen that the cars in front of him had stopped. In result of this he crashed into the car behind us who crashed into the back of our car and forced us to crash into the car in front of us. Our car has been taken away following the substantial damage and we are awaiting to find out if we will be having the car mended or if it is repairable. I have suffered whip lash and concussion and my partner who was driving is suffering from a bad back. Jenson, our baby who was in the Doona car seat positioned behind the driver’s seat has suffered marks to his legs and has had trouble sleeping since. The doctor said this could have been from muscle pain but fell he is improving each day. We would like to thank Simple Parenting as Doona definitely saved our sons life and has been the best thing we have ever purchased. Not only because of the safety aspect but also because of its simplicity and practicality that has made parenting for us a whole lot easier. I always have and always will recommend this product to new mums and it honestly the best thing a parent could have.

I am a visually impaired mother with a guide dog and a 6-month-old son. I had to do a lot of research before buying a car seat because I use public transportation every day and cannot leave a car seat base in my car since I don’t have a car. I needed something lightweight and portable since I would be carrying my car seat with me while running errands. The Doona is the perfect solution. It has changed my life. I absolutely love it and it works perfectly for pulling while I walk with my guide dog. I hesitated to get it because of the price but it was absolutely worth it for me. Doona has accompanied me on planes, buses, trains, boats, and, of course, in all of my friends’ and family members’ cars. I am constantly complimented on my stroller, and many people want to know where I got it. My only wish is that there was also a toddler form of this car seat. Maybe that will be a future endeavor for Doona.
