This has been a really hard decision for us, too. I can’t believe how much research I’ve done on this topic!

We have finally settled on the City Mini GT with a car seat adapter for when baby is really little. We live in NYC and won’t have much space, so we wanted something compact and relatively lightweight, but rugged enough to handle rough sidewalks. Cost is also a factor.

We’re really hoping we can get by with just this one stroller (ok, maybe we’ll get a really lightweight umbrella stroller later for traveling). 

We also considered the regular City Mini, but it’s not tall enough for DH to push comfortably. We looked at the Uppababy Cruz, which I know people love, but we decided for the price and for our needs to go with the GT. I hope it’s the right choice!

@UK Bride:  

The hubby and I are going to buy the baby jogger city select. Ive done a ton of research on strollers and it’s the best choice for us. I love that it can transform from a single to a double within seconds. I mean, if we are going to spend that kind of money on a stroller, I don’t want to have to buy a second when we have number 2!! Plus, I LOVE the bassinet. Totally adorable. Congrats on the twins:)

No, but we’re only in week 5. I know I’d like one with a reversible handle so I can look at my little miracle when we go for walks (FX for a sticky baby)

@UK Bride:  I’ve heard good things about the iCandy range, plus they are very stylish. 

@Mollie-Rose:  I’ve got the Peg Perego Uno which is a good pram, easy to collapse and has a reversible handle but isn’t widely available anymore. For bubba #2 I’m considering upgrading to the Baby Jogger City Select. It’s an impressive unit that can accommodate capsules, twins, and toddler/baby combo – 16 different possible configurations if memory serves?? That includes reversible too. It’s pricey – Baby Bunting have it at $849 I think? But a good pram is worth spending the dollars on, and it’s a cheaper price point than Bugaboo, iCandy and Stokke. As a mum I’d vote for the Baby Jogger 🙂

@UK Bride:  I know i’m like a whole month behind, but i found the stroll-air my duo, andi think this is just PERFECT!!

Its side by side and takes 2 car seats simultaneously and best of all, its reversible and smaller than the bugaboo donkey for half the price!
