    I disagree with the suggested vehicles in this article. I am a new dad (my daughter is 7 months old), and I currently own a 2006 Mazda 3. I am seriously shopping for either a Subaru Forester or Toyota RAV4, primarily because I need cargo room. You soon-to-be dads are in for a rude awakening when you see just how much stuff that new baby comes with: car seats, car seat bases, strollers, umbrella strollers, pack-n-plays, rockers, bouncers, diaper bags, toys, big boxes of diapers and formula, etc... the list goes on! I can fit the stroller in the back of my Mazda 3, and that's just about it. Anything else has to go up front with me, as my wife likes to sit in the back with the baby while I drive. Cargo room really is vital!
