You know you’ve become a parent not when you find out you’re pregnant, not when you actually deliver your beautiful child, but when you start to dream about strollers as you’re putting together the registry. Anyone who tells you they don’t think about these little lux baby vehicles is lying to you. These things are FANCY and let me tell you, you start to want the Bentley of Strollers as you learn the differences between them all.
Living in the city with two kids and one on the way [you’re pregnant?!], strollers are my mini van. They are the main form of transportation for us as we walk most places with the kids. That being said, I’m here to make your decision easier, and get you the most tricked out stroller you would like. Enjoy.
This is my life, we chose a stroller that would grow with our family.
The UPPAbaby Vista was great when we had one child, then we were able to purchase the additional seat and adapters for when our second came along. Now that we’re heading into the world of three kids… under 4 years old (yes true story) the same stroller works for us.
We were able to get the Piggyback, like a skateboard. This allows all three kids to be one stroller at one time. Genius. [sounds like the kid version of a clown car]
The UPPAbaby has great customer service along with locations that can service the stroller just like you’d get your car serviced. It’s a safe, reliable, wonderful stroller and we’ve recommended it to many friends over the years. It’s pricey, but all big name strollers are also on the higher end. You truly do pay for what you get, 10/10.
When traveling you don’t want to carry your big stroller and all the parts that go along with it, it’s a hassle. Therefore the world of travel strollers exists.
We’ve had travel strollers which were cheaper and they didn’t last long. Not surprising, but again you pay for what you get. The best one we’ve had to date is the Baby Jogger City Tour 2. It’s everything you want in a travel stroller.
Light weight, easy to fold (can be done one handed, which most parents are as the other is typically holding your child… or snacks), and is compatible with car seats so you can use your car seat on the stroller and lock it in for those who have smaller children who they need to push around.
It’s a good price point for a quality brand travel stroller. I highly recommend this one, 8/10!
For parents of kiddos what strollers do you love? I know there are plenty of them out there so your experience will tell us what else is worth shouting out!
… and for those of you who made it this far who don’t have kids, it’s because you got sucked into how cool these things can be and I can now safely say I told you so 🙂 [you got me]
