Just wondering - we are on the search.
Graco Snugride 35 & we just got the UppaBaby Vista
No baby yet, but I loveeee the stroller :o)
House / Baby blog
We use the Graco infant carrier with bases and the snap n go until about 5-6 months old. Basically, we use it until it is too heavy to carry. We still have the same one from DS1 so we definitely got our money's worth :)
After that, we use the Britax Marathon car seat and a medium sized umbrella stroller. Nothing to heavy or bulky but not the cheap $10 umbrella stroller either. We need to buy a new one because we only have a double stroller right now. (Don't need that anymore!)
Maxi Cosi foray stroller, and maxi cosi mico car seat
We have two strollers. One big one, Bertini Shuttle TS Sport Baby Stroller, was given to us by a friend and is like the range rover of strollers. We live in the city so we also needed a really light weight stroller. Our second is the Aprica presto. It is 11 lbs and I love it.
With DD we had a Maclaren. It was a really great light weight, multipurpose stroller. I thought we were done and gave it to a friend right before our surprise BFP or we would still be using it instead of the Aprica.
We also got the Graco Snugride 35 from BRU. Got good reviews on the Baby Bargains book. It was a toss up between this and Chicco but after playing with both at the store, we felt more comfortable with this one. GL!
We just got a Chicco Cortina Keyfit travel system. Heard great reviews about it.
Also we bought a city mini baby jobber with a kit adapter to use the car seat we purchased the Peg-Perego Primo Viaggio with the stroller.
Thanks for starting this post. DH and I are on the search for a new infant seat, as our old one that we used for DD#1 has become discontinued and we are skeptical on using it again because of this reason. Plus, we are having a hard time finding an extra base to go with it now that we have 2 cars that are family cars.
We are torn right now between the Baby trend Flex Loc and the Graco Snugride. We already have the Baby Trend Expedition jogger, so it would make sense to get the Flex Loc and use it as a travel system (although our jogger is black and yellow and we are having a girl, I'm having a hard time thinking that it will be girly enough). It has great safety ratings, but gets poor reviews because of the way it releases from the base (it releases from the front of the seat, so put it rear-facing and I imagine it would be a pain to have to reach between the seat and base to get it out).
In a perfect world, the Chicco Keyfit would be my ideal choice, but its already kinda pricey for us, especially since this is our 2nd child and we don't plan on having any more for at least 5 years, to which any car seat will be expired by then. We would have to buy the seat, an extra base, and then a snap-n-go type of stroller, dishing out more than $300 for all this. Saftey ratings are almost identical to the Flex Loc and the Snugride, and I guess that that is the most important thing, right? Safety before looks!
We have a Snugride infant seat (the regular 22 lb. weight limit one) and a Snugrider stroller frame.
We also have a Chicco Capri umbrella stroller that we keep in the car and a Jeep jogger for walks/zoo/etc.
We will probably get a double jogger style next spring.
samelissa75:Chicco Key Fit and Uppa Baby Vista
We have a Graco Snugride and LiteRider stroller. Both have held up really well w/DS #1 and we'll be reusing w/#2. DS is really tall, so he outgrew his infant seat by height at 4 mos (you have to move them out when they are within an inch of the top of the seat). For convertible seats, we have an Evenflo Momentum for my car and a Saftey 1st Complete Air 65 for DH's car, we like both of them.
