Just wanted to say, I love your website and your advice about strollers is the most realistic and practical that I’ve come across on the internet. Keep up the good work!
I’m looking for a practical every day lightweight stroller for use around the city - mainly for uneven, hilly sidewalks, parks and possibly going up and down stairs to subway stations. My child is currently a 25 lb, very tall one year old.
We also travel quite frequently so would love something that is travel friendly.
Do you think it’s realistic to expect one stroller to do it all, or should I expect to need two? We also live in an apartment so space is a factor.
We started with a Cybex Gazelle, and while we loved the bassinet while he was small, it now feels too bulky. We also tried the Babyzen which already felt cramped for our big guy, I also didn’t like the folding mechanism and the small basket. We then tried the Bugaboo Butterfly and while great for traveling it didn’t feel comfortable enough for everyday use in terms of suspension and I missed having a pocket on the back of the seat.
Budget is not a big factor. We are based in the US. I’m currently considering the Uppababy Minu (the piggyback board looks interesting!) and the Thule Spring (much heavier and less compact but have to say I’m curious about trying a three-wheeler). Would love to hear your thoughts!
Forgot to mention that I’m looking for something that can sit quite upright which I haven’t been able to find in most ultra compacts.
