So far, the only stroller I have loved is $400.

for how little I use a stroller, this is just an excessive expense. So I am trying to find something cheaper.

I found something that has the 2 main features I like/NEED (full size, so it's not too short--I hate leaning over to push a stroller--and the seat reverses so baby can face me OR face out) for $150.

BUT

It's 3 wheels.

I've never owned a 3 wheel stroller. I'm afraid of possibly not liking it. I know some people love the 3 wheel jogging strollers. This isn't a jogging stroller, as far as I can tell, nor do I have any interest in a jogging stroller. Is the 3 wheels going to annoy me for a walking stroller? (I get it's personal taste, yada yada yada, but how did YOU feel about a 3 wheel versus a 4 wheel stroller?) Does it in ANY way feel more annoying to push?

I will only ever buy a 3 wheel jogging type stroller from now on. I'm sure it depends on the brand but ours, we bought from target 2 years ago, is amazing. It maneuvers like magic and can go over bumps, rocks, etc. I took it to the fair and was amazed as I watched all the other 4 wheel typical baby strollers get stuck. Mine is a breeze. It was between $150 & $200 but well worth it.

Ours is soo much easier to push than our 4 wheel one. The front wheel is larger and can swivel 360°. All wheels have shocks to absorb any bouncing.

Is that the countours one? I was looking at getting that but decided since it didnt have big wheels like a jogging stroller it'd probably not feel as sturdy. I tried to find it in store to play with it but couldn't find it

Ive pushed tons of four wheeled ones so was unsure of my three wheeled choice of the Britax one. I love how compact it folds up and that is why I got it but then pushing it to see how it felt and putting it away and when I have to move it out of where it is sitting to rearrange things it is soooo easy! I would say it is much much easier to maneuver than those four wheeled ones and it feels really sturdy.. I know it is not much help as I havent used it yet.. but I love the idea of the three wheels now.

I REALLY want to buy the Contours options stroller - 3 wheeled, reversible seat, etc... It's around $150-200 but I want to be able to SEE it in person first and can't find it anywhere.

I think Target also carries a 4 wheeled stroller with reversible seat and adjustable handle that is around $150 I think. but it's a pretty wide base, so it may not fit in your car depending on what you have.

Yes, the contours one is the one I'm thinking of...

I'll look up reviews on it I guess

Now to pick a different carseat, because the one I want is discontinued and can't be found anywhere

I prefer my 3 wheeled stroller to my 4 wheeled stroller.

I choose a 3 wheeled stroller, so it would be more agile

I don't have personal experience with 3-wheeled strollers but when I was trying them out at BRU compared to the 4-wheeled you can def tell the difference in maneuverability.

Sounds like the 3 wheel feature is a good thing, then
