SaraJeanQ :  I bought them off of Amazon. At that price point, not having to pay sales tax makes a difference to me.

SaraJeanQ :  When I registered for mine the 2017 model was still on preorder, and only available through a site called Pish Posh Baby.  I think it was free shipping and no tax!  But it’s now available at Buy Buy Baby and Toys R Us too.

Audrey2_sings :  Oooh pish posh is not tax for all?  I want the 2017 version too – did a ton of research today (thank you Sunday) and I like that teh 2017 version is almost 2 pounds lighter and the wheels are 1 inchs leaner.

Yes and no. On all busses there is a space for wheelchairs / buggies. Buggies must give way to wheelchairs so if you have a pushchair you should collapse it rather than use the space. Prams like mine don’t really collapse so I can leavd it, but I should also leave the bus if a wheelchair user needs the space

Given your lifestyle, I think you need a carrier. Navigating buses, cafes and going on hikes during the first year is really a pain with a stroller, but very easy with a carrier. I loved my ergo baby and regretted that I only got it at 6 months and not earlier.

I recieved a hand-me-down Graceco stroller from SIL. It has four wheels and a newborn carseat that snaps into it. I am 100000000% appreciative of it!!

However, if I could have chosen my stroller, I would have gone with one of those trendy three wheel ones so I could go jogging with it more easily!

We have a BOB Revolution Pro (DH and I are big runners) and a McClaren Quest umbrella stroller for easier transport. Baby is due next week, so we haven’t used them yet!

I have 2 bob revolutions (single and double).  I got a free car seat (the britax bsafe) for buying the stroller and adapter and I got the stroller on sale so only paid about $400 for the single and car seat.  I bought the duallie used for $300.  Though I did end up buying the car seat adaptor for that as well as a new handlebar console thing.  I run with them.  Just took both kids on a short run yesterday, first time using my duallie!  Only downside is it’s so bulky compared to the single width ones but I don’t use a stroller much except for running and other outdoor things (zoo, farm, etc).  Planning on selling them when I’m done, there is a pretty good market for them used.  I do have an umbrella stroller which my mom prefers but I’m not a big fan.

raspberrymojito :  yes, select can be configured for 2-3 children.

i’ve had no problems with tipping on the mini.  it is lightweight and i love the 1 hand fold and open.
