I am a first time mom and trying to figure out which stroller to buy... We can only afford one. What would be the recommendation?


I am debating between a basic 4-wheel travel system or a jogging stroller with a swivel front that also have a snap on carseat. I was wondering why most people don't just go with a jogging stroller since they can be used for exercise AND running errands. Why would I buy a 4-wheel travel set? There must be a reason because that's what most people have that I see out and about!


Help! Any opinions?

Most jogging strollers have adapters you can buy to attach an infant car seat to them so you do not need to buy a travel set if you don't want one. If you want to use it for jogging, I would buy a jogging stroller that has different adapters available so you can pick any car seat you want. I think there are benefits to not buying sets. I have a set and I wish I had gotten a separate stroller and car seat. I like my stroller a lot, but the car seat gets on my nerves.
