I know it's early, but I'm trying to decide what I want since my MIL will be buying it for us and I want her to be able to look out for sales and whatnot.

I definitely want a travel system but I'm so indecisive about which to get! I still adore the Britax B-Ready, especially because it converts from single to double and we'll want a second baby soon, but it's about $750 just for the base stroller and the car seat. Add on the cost of the adapter and second infant car seat, if we end up needing 2 at the same time, and we're looking at a $1000+ stroller. I think it might end up being cheaper to buy a single stroller now and a tandem one later. I'm just not sure.

Has anyone picked already? If so, please inspire me!

We haven't bought it yet but we have decided on the Bob revolution SE and Bob- Britax car seat. We want a stroller that's good for trails since we have a 12 almost 13 year old that we take on hikes etc and good for jogging. I like to go for jogs and walks while my son skateboards so it will be perfect

We have a Graco sit and stand. It is a double stroller. I bought it right before I had #5 because there was only 20 months between #4 & #5. I'll definitely be using it again since there are only 18 months between #5 & #6.

Yes this is the one thing that I do have because it was on sale from $499 to $349 and my mom bought it for us. I decided on this on because I was looking at the bob that Jozzy is going to get because I have a friend who has one and it is just awesome. It's just not in my price range because it's priced around the same as the Britax and you have to buy everything separate. It starts to add up. With the Graco travel system it all comes together for the one price.

The only problem is that it is now out of stock so I don't know if they are going to restock them or get a newer model. They are still available in the states.

I haven't decided. I have no clue what we'll get. I know I'm not spending $500+ on one. That just seems ridiculous to me. I'll probably end up with a graco travel system. I may buy the stroller used and the car seat new, depending on selection and price. Too many products to decide easily!

I could never see spending so much on a stroller! The Graco ones in my opinion worked just fine for DD and we don't ever use it. We go out all the time but she wont sit in a stroller anymore so we used it for less then 2 years.

We are pretty set on the new Graco Modes Click Connect Sport. I think it's only available at Buy Buy Baby. Originally, we were going to go with a Britax and then when we went to the store we actually liked this one a lot more!

I don't have the money for a fancy stroller or anything, but after our fire we bought a Baby Trend jogging stroller for my son, and I LOVE that thing way more than I loved my peg perego and my graco that I had before the fire. Its super durable, works great for jogging on any terrain I've tried it on, and my son finds it to be comfortable. Biggest bonus? It was $50. (We got it on sale.) Our new graco snugride doesn't snap into it, but no big deal. I will babywearing mostly until she's quite a bit bigger anyway

I'd really like the bugaboo cameleon but I don't think DH will be on board with that. The Graco stroller we had before had soft big tires and we had to pump and exchange a few tires wich was a pain in the rear. I might go with a jogging stroller like the Graco fast action jogging stroller. The stroller, carseat and video sureveillance/ babycam are the only items DH will pick.

I want the City Mini GT to use with the Graco Clic Connect 35. However I'd like to try the Graco stroller that Cassie mentioned first.

Am putting off getting/receiving a stroller until next year - since I'm in the Northeast, by the time baby gets here it will be too cold to take walks, so the only places outside the home she'll go is doctor, store, relatives, etc and she'll either hang tight in the carseat or we will baby wear. Once it warms up next spring, we'll go shopping for the stroller. It's nice to defer the cost for a little longer, and it'll give me time to check out some consignment sales and look for gently used strollers as well to save even more.

I did not pay full price for my P&T. I NEVER would pay that much for a stroller. I got mine on craigslist for $160, normally $400+. I rarely pay full price for baby items!

We are going to be springing for the Bob jogging stroller as well. I want the Stroller Strides one since it matches the colors of our carseat, not to mention I am certified in pre and post natal fitness through Fit4Mom. It just makes sense to me.

I don't know about the rest of you but I am so excited to have a stroller to push around again! With a 6 and 8 year old there are times my arms are FULL of their stuff. I cannot wait to be able to set it all down in the stroller basket. Its the little things that make the difference!!!
