I haven't decided yet..the car seat I like has a matching stroller that's sold separately but I feel like it's a better deal to opt for a different car seat that you can buy in a set w/ the stroller, it's cheaper to do it that way..so I'm still deciding.

I'm buying a stroller with a 2nd seat attachment and attachments to snap in car seats, they will not be a matching set. I really want to be able to move them easily from car to stroller with minimal making up and this seemed like the easier way.

We are buying this stroller: Amazon.com: Baby Jogger 2012 City Select Single Stroller, Onyx: Baby

We are planning right now to get 2 Graco SnugRide 30's.

I really have no preference. The only thing that I do care about is that the car seat have a base. I'm not worrying about getting a stroller at all.

We got a separate carseat and stroller...but they can work together. We'll eventually get a lightweight stroller when baby is a bit older.

We bought a Britax B-Agile, and we are strongly leaning towards getting a britax infant seat that can fit in it.

Sine my other baby isn't very old, I still have the travel system from him. I seriously used it as a travel system once, lol. I am selling the big bulky stroller and getting a smaller one.
This is the one I have, but it is so bulky and doesn't fold very flat at all and a pain to move around.
Chicco USA - Cortina Stroller - Limonata
I am getting this one, and buying the matching cover for my car seat. I am also getting a double. I wear my babies a lot though, so I don't use strollers too often. But, I will probably only wear one at a time and need a stroller for the other.

I've got a BOB Dualie, which I'll use for two of my three kids at a time . No travel system for us though, as it wouldn't be economical, nor could I push two strollers at one time

Separate ones.

I don't have my license, so the carseat will obviously be in DH's car, and I don't want to be caught in a situation where I need to use the stroller but we forgot to take the seat out and it is with him at work.

I was debating whether to get an infant seat or just go to a convertible, but found a good deal on an infant seat so I bought it. I also found a good deal on a jogging stroller so I bought that as well, but they aren't compatible together as a travel system. I had a travel system with DD and rarely used it.

I decided to get a travel system. Here are a few reasons why:
1) I got it used from a friend. $80 for stroller car seat and two bases.
2) DH will potentially be deploying when this baby is 3-6 months old. I need to be able to run errands myself with both children (safely)
3) I will baby wear sometimes but other times it will be too warm or impractical.
4) DD will be 4 when this baby is born, so hopefully by the time this baby outgrows the carrier we will be able to get DD a booster (assuming she meets requirements) and then baby can use her car seat (which we just bought before Christmas.)

We are going with the Britax Travel System. It is one of the safest systems out there- which helped us make our decision.

After debating for awhile I think we are going to go with the britax travel system too .. i had a travel system with the twins and used it often and think i will use it often again .. it was a debate for me only cause this is a single and thought i wouldnt use it much but merw made a good point the one thing i did love about the travel system was i didnt have to distrub a sleeping baby

Nice! That City Select stroller is currently in our "top 3" list, although right now we are leaning more towards the Peg Perego Book Plus.

I want a new travel system. I have a Maxi Cosi Foray and infact carseat. I dont like the stroller becasue Ive work it out. It needs new tires or something and foam is cracking on handle bars. I like the infant seat but I cant really see using it when it takes up entire grocery cart. I needed it with dd but I feel like wearing baby will be easier. I still will wait and see.

We bought a convertible car seat and registered for a travel system and an extra base. If we get it, great. If not, that's fine too. I plan on baby wearing for awhile, so a stroller isn't something that I'm all that caught up in.

I'm looking at a nice Chicco system (basically the same one that I've registered for) that's going on sale this afternoon at a consignment sale, but I'm sooooo hesitant about buying a used car seat that I'll probably end up passing on it.

My mother found a very slightly used umbrella stroller for when he gets older at a church rummage sale for like $4, so we've got him covered once he's big enough for that.
