    We have the Graco Alano with the Snugride 35.  It’s been fine for what we needed, and if it watch closely, you can get it on sale for about $150.

    I have a travel system and wish I’d never gotten it because we wear Wombat so much. Before, we both thought that we needed one and now, the stroller just sits there. Have you thought about wearing your baby? Before I had Wombat, I thought baby wearing was strange, but it’s awesome.

    @TheFutureMcBride:  We almost always wear Addie, too.  Once I got pregnant again, though, I couldn’t wear her anymore, so when it’s just us girls, I have to use the stroller.  🙁  It’s good to have on hand for those excursions, but the majority of the time, we prefer the carrier, too.

    I had a Graco and it was good. I used to work in a big-box baby store and the Graco’s were definitely the most popular. I’d suggest seeing if they have any floor models on clearance. You can often find high end travel systems for half off when they change up the displays!

    I got a Graco travel system with my oldest and it had stood up throught the test of time and two children. Dh and I were laughing the other day because we do have to grease the wheels every once in a while or they squeek, but for the 10 years of use it has really stood up well.

    @Mrs. Spring:  We also can’t fit the stroller into the trunk, so it has to go in the back seat beside Wombat. If we have another, there’s no way I could ever use a stroller. It’s one of those things we didn’t think about until we got it home and put together.

    I asked this same question in a Moms group that I went to with a friend for the first time last week, and every single one of them attempted to talk me out of it. I decided to register for a City Mini after hearing their thoughts.

    @mrsjets:  It really also folds up in one swoop with no issue. It’s pretty shocking how easy it is to handle. They sell a car seat adapter for it.

    We have the Graco Ben travel system and love it.  I use the stroller for going to the mall as of right now. Once summer comes, that thing will be in use all the time.  I have worn muchkin around the house but he gets heavy and hurts my back so I rather have a stroller…

    We’re going with Britax. The B-Agile stroller and the B-Safe carseat.

    Here’s a video I saw of them being used together when I was researching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOAqN8wNdNw

     

    I originally wanted the Citi Mini stroller, but when I went to the store to test-drive, the B-Agile stroller was much smoother and I liked the handlebar better. The Citi Mini comes in more colors, which is why I really wanted to like it better. But the B-Agile is coming up with a couple new colors this spring that appease me. (I think I’m going to get Kiwi green.)
