THE STROLLER QUEEN
Strollers... they always hassle you at the most inconvenient of times, yet you can't live without them. I know I'm not the only mommy out there who feels this way. I have tons of mommy friends who have the same issue... what is the perfect stroller? I think the answer is it all depends on your lifestyle. For me, I'm always traveling, many times by myself, so I need a stroller that I can break down in a matter seconds all while holding my baby and tons of luggage.
I'm going to break down all the strollers I have and why I love them or cannot use them.
From Left to Right:
: This is the PERFECT jogger! But get ready to drop the dough if you want
. He is beautifully engineered, glides like a dream over ALL terrain, and provides plenty of storage for mom and dad. Folding him up for travel is a breeze, but the only problem is his size. The Bob takes up the entire trunk of my SUV even when folded up. One thing that helps is you can remove the wheels with a simple flip of a lever. But when it comes to checking this guy on the plane, I wouldn't recommend it.
Summer 3D Lite
: This is my most recent purchase and the cheapest of all four strollers. I needed something that I could throw around, is easy to lift in and out of the car, and good for running errands. Check, check, and check! The
does all three! It has a little sun vizor, and a small carriage underneath for storage. I wouldn't buy this stroller if you're planning on using it for everything, since it isn't as durable as the rest. But this is definitely worth every penny I spent on it.
: I wish I could still use this! If you have a babe under 6 months this is a must have. It's a stroller frame that you snap a car seat into. It's perfect for the times your little one falls asleep in the car. No need to wake them! Of all the strollers, the
o has the largest undercarriage that is perfect for grocery shopping. I'll have to wait until baby #2 to use it again, but I don't mind putting him in safe storage until then.
Chicco Cortina KeyFit
: This was my very first stroller purchase. It's great because my daughter's stroller clicks into it, but other than that, this guy is a clunker! When I say clunker, it's even bigger than the jogger when it's folded. The carriage underneath is pretty small too. But this
is VERY durable, good for long walks on paved roads. Sometimes we use this for after dinner walks.
Other Mommy-Recommended Strollers:
- durable, every day stroller, great in the two seater
- light weight, good for running errands, removable mesh seat for hot days
