I will be a stay at home mom, so I won't be in and out of the car a whole lot, but I don't want it to be a pain in the tush to pack up the stroller and put it in the car either. I would also like the car seat to fit into the stroller for at least the first few months. Once the baby grows, I realize that you have to have a separate car seat and stroller. But for those first few months, I don't want to have to take a baby in and out of the car seat and into the stroller.
I would also like the stroller and car seat to be fairly light. I really enjoy running so I would like to find something that doesn't have a whole lot of weight to it, but still sturdy.
Basically these are the traits I am looking for in a travel system.
- Ease of folding up the stroller to put in the car, porch, closet, etc.
- Car seat included with it for the first few months (would like this to be lighter too)
- Can use the stroller when baby is older
- Light weight but sturdy
- A great jogging/hiking stroller
- Something less than $300
