I am on the hunt for the perfect stroller for our situation and I need help!
I don't want a huge stroller (we already have the Thule Urban Glide 2 for trails and running etc. as we live on a dirt road) and I am not sure I can find everything I want in a small, compact travel stroller. Part of my problem is whether I want the stroller to be newborn-friendly, car seat compatible, or not (our car seat is the Clek liing). We do travel throughout the year. Thus, I am starting to think a mid-size stroller would make more sense, and then I could buy a cheaper travel stroller (like a Zoe stroller) for when we do travel more and the baby is older.
Our baby is only 2 months old and I would like to be able to take him in a stroller when I am in town, traveling to visit family, on local trips, etc. without lugging around something gigantic (we are minimalists). We live in Colorado where it can be very cold, windy and snowy.
Ideally the stroller would have a longer seat height to accommodate a taller child, a peekaboo window and extendable canopy (the sun is intense here), all wheel suspension to handle rougher surfaces, and a reclining seat for 2-3 month olds and maybe even newborns! Ideally, the weight would be around 20 lbs. and the handlebar could accommodate myself (5 ft 5 in) and my husband (6 ft tall).
Am I hunting for a unicorn stroller? I have looked at the Nuna Triv, Larktale Coast (short seat), Colugo Complete (maybe too big), Bugaboo Ant, Joolz Aer, LeClerc MF Plus (won't ship to US). Ideally, the cost would $500 or less. Thoughts?
