I am looking for a stroller for my 21 months toddler, weighing around 12 kg. I have a few and precise requirements but yet overwhelmed with so many options. Hence I would love to have your expert opinion.
FYI, I just bought the Britax Romer Agile M, and it is not a satisfactory purchase though all its features met my requirements while scouring the Internet. It was tough to maneuver, and the suspension did not work at all, in my opinion. My hands were hurting by pushing the stroller for 20 minutes.
My primary concerns are -
1. Comfortable and secured sitting position for her with adjustable leg rest. She sits straight and does not put her back in a slightly inclined backrest. I think an L or V-shaped seat would be better? And if she feels asleep, she is not comfortable lying entirely in a flat position in a stroller.
2. Excellent maneuverability (pushing with one hand) and suspension for curbs and cobblestones. I live in Berlin, Germany. So it is a must. I owned another stroller with Eva foam wheels (Gesslein Smiloo), and it was quite easy to push but not so good on cobblestones and a little bit jerky.
3. The built quality should be good and sturdy but not too heavy since we live on the 4th floor. It would be great if the clothing material is of good quality too.
4. Easy and one-hand folding system.
What we don't want is a travel system and a heavyweight frame system stroller like Bugaboo. We want just a buggy within the mid-price range (200-300 euro), comfortable sitting positioning, good quality materials with great suspension and maneuverability, and minimal features. Large basket, front, and rear-facing are not a necessity. A relaxing journey (basically walking) for both the child and parents is required.
Thanks for your time.
