Holy Grail (holder)

Stroller envy is not a pretty thing.

Cupholder envy is even worse.

Our good friends Matt and Sandra lent us their infant car seat and stroller base so we wouldn’t need to spend money on yet another piece of baby gear.  The stroller base had a cupholder attached to it, but I didn’t think much about it until I started getting inquiries from parents on the street.  “Nice cupholder,”  they’d say wistfully.  “Where’d you get it?”  I’d always have to apologize and explain it was a loaner with no written history.  I didn’t get what the big deal was until it was gone.

When our friends needed the base back before Madeleine had graduated to the "big girl" stroller, we bought our own base, sans cupholder.  Then I understood.  Not only does it hold your water and my keys and cell phone, but the right cupholder allows you to drape the diaper bag over the end of the stroller, catching it and holding the bag neatly for you.  I called my friend and begged her for info, and laughingly she admitted it was “somewhere on the Internet, I’m not sure where.”  I’ve scoured the Internet and, alas, the only place I find it is on eBay; but I’m telling you, run, don’t walk, to EBay and search for BABU CUPHOLDER.  This baby’s a beaut and attaches to almost any stroller; it’s even got easy removal for folding up on the plane.  Trust me on this.
