Which brand do you prefer?

Do you have one or just a car seat?

Dh bought us one today from babies r us. After an hour and half, we picked this chicco brand. Originally $299.99 but guy that was helping us was asset manager and gave us additional 20% off (even though the original 20% coupon we had wasn't valid towards travel systems ), pus 2 gift cards of $25 each then a $25 visa gift card so our out of pocket cost was only about $197!

Here's the exact one we got.

That's awesome that you got such a good deal! We're getting the Graco Snugride Click Connect 40 carseat and the stroller that goes with it. My mom wanted to buy them both for us, so I said ok! Otherwise we may have just gotten the carseat and ended up with a different stroller. But I like the one that matches the seat, so it works for me! We don't have them yet, but hopefully I will get them from her this weekend at our shower! I know she got the seat already, but I don't know about the stroller.

We got the Chicco system back when DD was born! It's been good to us, and super easy to use.

We don't have our travel system yet! There is one we like at target, it is Graco. We haven't researched it yet or anything, but we liked the way it handled in the store.

I LOVE Chicco. I plan on getting just the Chicco stroller next spring. We already have a carseat so a travel system wasn't necessary since i'll just wear him in the Ergo this summer. We got the Graco travel system with DD and I DESPISED the stroller. It was heavy and awkward and just terrible.

Great deal! I don't have a travel system this time (we sold it before the carseat expired), but we used a Graco one before and really liked it.

That is a great deal We don't have a travel system for this one, and didn't for my son. But we did get one for my daughter and we liked it. It was a Graco.

We got the Babytrend travel system with the jogging stroller. I've heard really good things about it and didn't see any bad reviews other than from people who obviously didn't read the manual.
I'm excited to start putting it to use!

We got the Babytrend travel system with the jogging stroller too. Not that I have any plans of jogging...but it does handle great. I bought it on reviews alone, because I was buying it on Amazon from the US since it was so much cheaper that way. My only complaint about it is that in all the reviews, nobody mentioned the fact that it will not fit into the trunk of a regular car. Basically you need a minivan or SUV to fit it into. Not a huge deal, since I primarily got it for walking around the neighbourhood, to the park, and walking DD to and from school. I can always get a little umbrella stroller to keep in the car if I want.

This is it - except it was on sale for $159 when I bought it a few months ago. Really great deal. Amazon.com: Baby Trend Expedition LX Travel System, Millennium: Baby

We didn't do the travel system either, I can't remember why originally. We got the graco snugride, and a stroller frame that the seat clicks into.

Then we ended up getting a "big" stroller, which an infant seat would also connect to. The frame stroller we used on occasion and thought it would be more lightweight and useful in the beginning, but ended up going to storage when we upgraded to the bigger stroller. We also have a jogging stroller and baby carriers....I wish I could stop buying baby products ha ha

Thats the Same one I plan on getting, it just seemed to have so much more to it, looked safer to me than the ones with less padding in them
