This is what we have. We love it. We don’t have space, so we didn’t want a ton of strollers, or strollers that took up a lot of space. This is great bc you can put the car seat in, but it’s also a regular stroller for when baby is old enough!

@MrsWBS:  OMG I forgot to put a stroller on my registry wishlist *smacks face* and I had all the research done and don’t remember which one I picked, lol. All I remember is it was  graco stroller that had the carseat that was able to snap in to it and the stroller grew until child was a toddler so you didn’t have to buy a different stroller later on.

Commenting to follow as well.

also commenting to follow!  I don’t want to go the travel system route and need something light.  So any recommendations on a light option would be great!

My MIL bought us the Britax B-Ready when Amazon had their buy one get a free carseat deal. We don’t have it yet but she sucks at keeping secrets so I know she did!

I have a few friends who have it and love it. My SIL also has the Uppa Vista. I just knew we wanted something we could put two kids in because we won’t wait and have our kids TOO terribly far apart and I wanted to be able to accomodate the older one in a big kid seat for a bit if necessary.  Plus I LOVE all the seating options.

@MrsWBS:  Can I ask why? (super curious about other’s opinions since I am still decided on a stroller). I guess I didn’t do much research on why click connect or travel systems may not be the way to go.

I just went with the Graco snugrider elite — which is the Graco version of the snap n go stroller. It is SO light and SO easy to use, and perfect for when baby is small! I also have a Bob Revolution jogging stroller that stays in our garage fully assembled for when I take the baby out for walks or jogs — but I would never want something that heavy to be my regular stroller. The snap and go is awesome and should be fine for us for at least a few months. And then we will reevaluate and get a different stroller later on.

It’s easy to think “I will just buy one big one and keep it forever” but you don’t really know how you’re going to feel until you have it. Like, now that I actually have the Bob and have tried folding it up and putting it in my trunk, I am SO GLAD that isn’t my everyday use stroller. I would die if I had to lug that thing around everywhere. Sometimes, it is better to have one stroller for infancy and then get another one when the kid gets bigger, especially since strollers are incredibly easy to find used ones in excellent condition. My Graco snap-n-go was a Craigslist purchase for $40 — definitely a worthwhile investment even if it only fits her for six months or less! So, that’s just something to think about — if you can find the strollers used for cheap enough, then you can totally just keep switching (and selling) to different ones as your kid grows and has different needs.

@MrsWBS:  The BOB revolution SE is an awesome jogging (or walking!) stroller, and the Maclaren is perfect for travelling- only 11 lbs! Neither is cheap, but so worth it! In the infant days (pre-Maclaren), the Snap n Go was invaluable- just a frame, cheap, and the infant carrier fits right onto it. So light- it’s awesome until baby gets bigger! We also got the conversion bar for the BOB, so the infant carrier could fit onto that as well, but the BOB is heavier so we kept that at home and kept the Snap n Go in the car.

@MrsWBS:  I have the Peg Perego Book on my registry with the matching carseat. The seat on the stroller completely removes and it becomes a click and go with just the infant carseat when baby is little. Then when you put the seat back on baby can be forward facing or parent facing. I like that it has a one hand fold and is pretty easy to pick up. For when the baby is a little bigger I also registered for the Uppa Baby G-Luxe. It’s only 11lbs & reclines 180* so as long as there’s extra support it can accomodate an infant. I think it’ll be great to have when baby is older and we start traveling a lot.

@MrsWBS:  We looked at the Graco, and we decided against it because, for the price, it didn’t seem very sturdy and well made, and DH refused to look at it because of the tires (he is a tire snob).  We ended up going with the Britax B Ready, and, even though I haven’t used it, I am pretty excited about it.  I am jealous thought that someone wants to buy you the Uppa Baby.  We really liked that one, but I just don’t think it was worth the $700 price tag.
