Stroller and carseat question...

Hi ladies,

I'm a FTM and I'm due in March.  I know this isn't "my" board but I would like your opinions on car seats and strollers since you have new little ones.

What type of car seat and stroller are you using?  What are your likes and dislikes and would you do anything differently?

Thanks so much for your help!

    We have a Graco SnugRide 32 car seat and Graco Mosaic stroller. We've been using both since DD1 was born, and are now using the car seat for DD2. I love them both. The stroller is fairly lightweight, a nice middle-ground between an umbrella stroller and a travel system, and the car seat snaps into it. It maneuvers well, and I can fold/unfold with one hand if needed. There is nothing about either piece of gear that I don't like, actually.

    We use the baby trend expedition travel system and I love it!!! The stroller is a jogging stroller that can do 365 degree turns and the front wheel also locks in place for steadier motion if you are going to use it for running we bought it at burlington coat factory for $200 and it included the stoller, car seat, and car seat base and I wouldn't trade it for anything else!

    We have the chicco keyfit travel system.
    I love it. The carseat and base are easy to use and install, and the stroller, while heavy, isn't too heavy, easy to fold/unfold and is sturdy.
    If you have the extra cash, I'd get a baby trend snap and go. It makes navigating narrow aisle in stores a little better and is super light.
    If you don't want a heavy stroller at all, you could probably get the baby trend and the carseat without the travel system.

    We have the Chicco Keyfit 30 carseat and the Jeep Liberty Sport X Stroller. I love them both! The stroller is a jogging stroller and the front wheel turns 360 degrees. It navigates wonderfully and has alot of storage space. No complaints here.

    We have the Chicco Keyfit as well and I agree with PP's review. The only thing I would add is that the sunshade on the car seat is very short.

    We have the Graco Snugride 35 travel system and I LOVE it! The car seat is a great size and Fits great into the stroller which isn't too big or too small. I can easily pick it up and get it in and out of the trunk as well. It was also a fantastic price at about $250 for the seat, base and stroller. We purchased another base for $50.

    Right now all i am using is a baby trend snap and go and the BOB revolution with the infant car seat adapter. LOVE them both. The snap and go is super light and I use that when i am out and about. The BOB is an AWESOME jogging stroller.

    We have the britax chaperone carseat and b-ready stroller. Love them both, but the stroller is a bit on the wide side, so it makes getting through doorways tricky if I don't hit the passage straight on.

    We have the Chicco Keyfit 30 and LBB loves it.  He goes to sleep almost immediately when we put it in.  It's light enough for me to carry easily.

    For stroller, we have the Baby Jogger City Elite which we use on a daily basis to go for walks.  It handles fabulously - love the fixed wheel/non-fixed wheel switch since our walks are on both gravel and trails.  I love that I can easily pop it open and fold it closed with the pull of a strap.  DH loves the adjustable handlebar since he's almost a foot taller than me.

    We have a Graco Snugride 35 travel system.  I love the car seat so far--mostly because of the pattern, but the handle is nice too.  I've only used the stroller a few times and so far so good.  It maneuvers nicely and has a nice big basket underneath.

    My one suggestion is to find a front adjust harness for the carseat.  Otherwise you have to adjust the harness from the back which is a big pain.  My SIL didn't think about that and learned the hard way, so I made sure when we picked one out that it had that front adjust.

    We have a Chicco Keyfit carseat, a Snap N Go and a Baby Jogger City Mini Double stroller with a carseat adaptor for when we want to go somewhere with both kids. We also have a City Mini single if we want to take DS someplace by himself. Love all of them.
