I loved my stroller – the Inglesina Zippy.  Highly, highly recommend!

Have you gone and played with them in store? It’s all going to be personal preference as to what style you want and size.

We went with a BOB Revoluation SE, as I wanted a jogging stroller that would be stable to walk the dogs with. All the others felt cheap compared to it.

We have the Britax B-ready. I liked the B-agile, but I wanted something with a little more space and I really liked the idea that you can turn the seat to face you or face out. There are a ton of options with it and it can be a double stroller too if we have a second when this baby is still in a stroller.

I can’t comment too much on first hand use because I’m only just over 20 weeks right now but I’ve played with it, folded it, lifted it, pulled the seat off and turned it around. Basically dissected it as much as I could without using it in actual daily life and it’s very user friendly. It’s definitey not the most compact though, which is fine for me.

Joovy Cooper best strollers ever! They come in normal colors too.

I don’t have a stroller yet and I haven’t even looked at them much in store so I probably won’t be much help at all, BUT I registered for a Graco LiteRider because it’s not too heavy, doesn’t look huge and it’s cheap. I understand getting what you pay for to an extent but I can’t see spending a ton of money (or making others spend a ton) on most baby items because they’re only used for a couple of years.

We intend to use the Chicco Keyfit Caddy while kiddo is tiny and the BabyJogger City Mini when kiddo is a bit bigger.  We were going for lightweight and easy to fold while still being high quality and very sturdy.

I’m getting the UPPAbaby Vista stroller. It isn’t too bulky looking, plus it is easy to assemble. It has front and rear suspension that make it a very smooth ride for the baby. I also like that it is for children 5 to 50 pounds, so I won’t need another stroller for when the child gets bigger.

Husband was tasked with researching travel systems. We decided to go with the Chicco Keyfit 30. We found the color we wanted half off at Babies R Us.

I spent $600 on strollers before DD1 was born and have definitely not gotten my money’s worth. Love the quality and the construction of the BOB Revolution, but it’s bulky and inconvenient to take anywhere so we only use it for neighborhood walks. The Chicco Liteway is simpler and has good storage and feels high quality, but the ride isn’t awesome. They’re both nice strollers, but DD never really liked to ride in them. My advice is to get a snap n go for your infant carrier, then buy a stroller that really fits your needs once you’ve figured out what they are instead of dropping a bunch of money on something that you might not even find convenient.

We are getting the Quinny Freestyle 4XL travel system, my cousin had this stroller and I absouletely love it. Its great for the more outdoorsy people, we have a cabin up north and I’ve seen people with the little cheap strollers and I feel so bad for the baby inside! If your looking for more of a city stroller or a mall stroller just go with a graco travel system there cheap and small 🙂

Have you thought about a Bugaboo Bee or Chameleon? Pricey, but nice and zippy. We’re going for the Bugaboo Donkey since it’s the thinnest and lightest side-by-side twin buggy on the market–essential since we live up a flight of stairs and don’t have a car! I need something as light and maneuverable as possible for carting twins around on London public transporation. *shudder* Ridiculously expensive, but hoping it can be a gift from the in-laws. 🙂

Phil n Teds and the Baby Jogger City Mini are both good too, from what I hear.

@abbyful:  So glad to hear you love your B-Agile!  We have that one, but since I’m just 30ish weeks, we obviously haven’t used it yet.
