Here we talk about all things baby.

Want a baby
Having a baby
Playing with a baby
Watching someone else’s baby
Baby accessories
Baby pictures


We do not talk about baby hate here. There’s plenty of that. You can discuss our stupidity and poor financial choices behind our backs in OT chat.

So. Strollers. What ya got? Do you like it? Any tips for a new to be dad shopping for a wheelie chair?

Everyone all up in it for the Uppa Baby Cruz but I think it looks like a giant hospital contraption. The Baby Jogger GT seems more up my alley. Remember I need something that packs small for the bus or subway and can handle bombed out infrastructure.

Side bar: :mahtroy: strollers are DIRT F’N CHEAP used.

The Uppa is fucking awesome. We did Bobs and loved em... For those first six months having something that works with your car seat is key

We used a Baby Trend Expedition when she was a tiny munchkin. The bigger wheels kick ass for rolling over anything; fields, roads, whatever.

After that we switched over to the Mclaren Triumph, and we keep one in each vehicle now. Hardly using them now doe.

That looks pretty good and is totally reasonably priced!

It looks nice for sure. Price point seems rough. Used they’re reasonable.

Yeah I want a stroller that can accept a car seat. Just seems to make more sense. If it has a bassinet too that’s great, that way if it falls asleep while cruising we can bring it in and just let it sleep in the thingy.

We did the whole KeyFit 30 "system" very pleased with it. Lasted both boys no problem.

Johnny. For the love of all that is good and holy, travel with you child like a Navy Seal Team. Tight, light, combat ready. Packable lightweight aluminum stroller. Gear in a tight packpack.

Don't be that couple rolling into Applebee's with the "Jeep" stroller wider than a Hellcat Widebody with more suspension than a Ford Raptor. 3 water bottles. 4 juice bottles. Snacks. 5 diapers. These are the people that need to be killed Johnny. Stand and deliver.

Something like this for a slightly older kid (6ish months and up) is 5/7. We have a Chicco Liteway for that purpose.

Also, wearing the baby is even better. We have both a Bjorn and a Ergo.

I’m all about compact and light traveling when possible. The wife and I would like something Smaller because our house is tiny and we take public transit a lot.

The one you posted looks pretty good.

Having both seemed like a waste to me at first but the Bjorn is better when they are smaller and the Ergo works when they are bigger. We still use the ergo for the 16 month old.

We were gifted an Evenflo Pivot Modular traveling system which comes with the car seat, base, and foldable stroller component. Comes with a bassinet modular one as well if you’re not traveling by car or just taking a brisk walk.

I am not an expert by any means but it works well for us for an “all in one solution”. We also have a KeyFit 30 car seat in my car. Wish we didn’t get gifted two separate car seats so we could’ve just had one and modular’d it.

Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System, Lightweight Baby Stroller, Sleek & Versatile, Easy Infant Car Seat Transfer, Oversized Storage Basket, Blanket Boot, Travel Stroller, 3-Panel Canopy, Sandstone Tan https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071VHBYX8/re ... nEb7PHN1PB

:dat: plus with all the tactical stuff being “in” these days, you cal look like a Navy Seal Team while doing it. I actually like that style of stuff and will probably lean towards it when I :baby:

Both of my boys found it too restricting unfortunately but we didn't bother looking in fancy contraptions that might work better then what we inherited.

Owned a Peg Prego stroller and it worked for us for both boys but it was bulky and squeaky and I can't really endorse it.

we got the Britax I believe.

it's like a budget version of some expensive thing.


agree with bender, you need a carrier base, and a stroller that accepts the carrier the first 6 months. the Britax then converts to a regular stroller. it's pretty light too.
