Stroller Questions....

What type of stroller did you get? what are your thoughts about it?


I have been looking around I ran across the orbit g2 ($$$$) ouch! although its very practical with all the different seats for different stages. Anyone have one? I found some barely used ones on craigslist pretty cheep considering.

I don't have the Orbit saw it in a store looks pretty cool!


We went with the Uppababy Vista - LOVE it!!!!  We got it when they were clearing out their 2011 models for the 2012.  It was $699.00 we got it for around $500.00.  My friend got hers on Zulily for even cheaper (around $400.00)


We went with that stroller because of 3 main things:


Stride: I am tall (6 ft.) so I needed something that my feet would hit
Rumble Seat option: We want more then 1 child, so this seat basically turns the stroller into a double
Reverseable seat: Love that my son can face out or face me :)


We did get the adpater for the carseat so we could just click the seat into the stroller - it was around $40 and well worth!

**Sigh** I don't want to want the Uppa Baby Vista but I do! It sounds like the perfect stroller EXCEPT for the weight and my need for a one hand fold. I'm not yet in the market for a stroller but I know the top contenders will be the Uppababy and the Baby Jogger City Mini.

I **love** my stroller!!! 


DNM it really is not that heavy compared to most and if you use the car seat attachment the first couple of months it really isn't heavy at all!  I think it's the seat that weighs it down a bit. 


I suggest spend some time at a store that has both - push around one and then the other.  That is what we did and that is how I sold DH on the UppaBaby :)


They also have the UppaBaby Cruz that is a smaller, lighter version on the Vista...

Thanks princess, you're right, I need to test drive these strollers. It's just that I live so close to the city and my in laws live in Chinatown so I know that 1) I need to be able to go up and down steps to use the subway and 2) I will be on my own without DH. So lightweight and one hand fold is kinda high on my priorities. I need to contact WMforever, another PWer that lives in the city and owns an UppaBaby Vista. But I do recall her complaining about the weight. And lately as I stalk city mom's w strollers I do see most using the City Mini albeit with older babies, I haven't seen many w newborns. Maybe a carrier is more practical? I dunno. I just got Baby Bargains in the mail so maybe that can offer some insight.
