Because I like to start threads about things like this, I guess. :)
I'm planning to baby wear as much as possible, but DP is insistent that we get a stroller anyway. Never having bought a stroller before, I'm wondering if there are some that are good for newborns as well as older children. Since I probably won't use it but so much for the first year or so, I don't want to get something that I have to replace too soon if I can help it.
I'm also needing something smallish, not like one of those SUV sized strollers. Not only do we have a tiny car (VW Beetle) with a tiny trunk but the Vancouver sidewalks are quite narrow. I always get so annoyed at those jerks who walk around the city with their kids in these humungous strollers and take up the entire sidewalk so you basically have to walk into traffic to get around them. I don't want to be one of those people. haha
Any particular brands/styles that any of you really like or have found to be good? Any to stay away from?
