Has anyone chosen a stroller yet?! It's been a long time since I had a stroller and the one my girls had I wouldn't get again. This time I want something streamlined and easy to steer! My friend loves her Bugaboo Bee but that's out of my price range. Any thoughts?

We got one of those frames that the infant seat snaps into - love it! Compact, steers well, very affordable, lots of storage on the bottom for diaper bag or groceries. I can't remember the brand (I think there are a few). Maybe someone else knows what I'm talking about?<br><br>
Hard to believe we're shopping for a double stroller now!

i personally recommend a BOB or P &T's. The car seat snaps in both, the P &T is perfect if you have one more and converts to lay down and can look at baby while walking. The BOB is better if you ar eonly having one... overall it would be my first choice- pricey but an excellent investment.

I think you mean something like <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FGraco-SnugRider-Infant-Stroller-Frame%2Fdp%2FB0007KMUH4" target="_blank">this</a>. I love, love, love my stroller like this. Well loved it. DS has outgrown it now. Most strollers will take an infant seat, but these are great because they are so light. You're not pushing a full stroller plus infant seat. I recommend it to everyone. My kiddo didn't like the sling so I used this constantly the first year.<br><br>
I think it really depends on how much you will use a stroller. I have a Graco Metrolite, which I got for free. I keep it for trips to the mall and zoo etc. and have no complaints. For walks around the neighborhood, we've been using a wagon that my parents gave him for Christmas. That works really well too.<br><br>
Bugaboos and the like, to me, are kind of unnecessary unless you will really be walking all the time or have a ton of disposable income.<br><br>
The best advice I ever got on stroller choice was from a friend who said, "Dude, just make sure it has cup holders." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I have a combi tri-fold both the single and the double and I love it. It is light weight and folds really small, has a 3/4 recline and can be purchased so a car seat snaps in (although i rarely used that feature).

I really love our Bugaboo Frog, but don't expect to be using it this time around with a toddler and an infant. I can't say enough good things about it.<br><br>
If you really like the bugaboo, I'd recommend looking for one used. They are out there occasionally. We received ours as a gift, but I would still have gotten it anyhow. I wouldn't waste the extra cash on the travel bag, and we have yet to use the sunshade. The water-holder is a must have. Other than looking for one used, I'd suggest doing a stroller gift fund. People who want to give you smaller gifts, ask them just to get you a gift card for Bugaboo. Save them all up and I bet you'll be able to get it!<br><br>
We're going with the Chariot CX2 this time around. It has great trunk space. We like the idea of being able to use it with our bicycles. The only thing I'm not too sure about is how we keep our DD from poking the baby all the time, although maybe she'll outgrow the going for the eyes thing soon?? (I hope!!) LOL I think hubby will also be relieved to get the giant car seat off the back of his bicycle. If it doesn't work out, I suppose we'll end up with one on each bicycle.
