Consider this just a brainstorming list. I’ve been browsing strollers, trying not to be overwhelmed, and without seeing any in person, I think these are the features I want in a stroller:
- Bassinet option
- Reversible seat option
- Car seat attachment option
- Adjustable handle
- Sturdy wheels
With those in mind, here are two that I think are good contenders (note: wordpress is not cooperating with links from images, hence the links below).
The Evenflo Pivot ($300, $249 on sale)
Britax B-Agile / B-safe ($400, varying prices on sale)
Chicco Urban Stroller (not a travel system, so infant car seat would be separate). $400
All of these seem to have the functions I’d like. I think I’ve decided that I do not want a jogging stroller. Running is my time, and I can always leave the baby with S while I go for a run. Or he can later ride his bike with baby while I run. And jogging strollers are so big! I think it will just be cumbersome in the city.
Other notes: I finally understand that an infant car seat is easy to carry and attach to a stroller, whereas non-infant seats are not. Makes sense now. And seems practical, which is why I’m looking at travel systems. Also, S has been super busy with work, which is why I’m doing a lot of the research. And then I fill him in on what I’ve learned. I don’t mind doing the background research. We’ll go shopping together once these last few deadlines have passed.
