This question comes from reader Candice. Here’s her letter.
Hi Mama Notes readers!! I’m so excited to get your advice on this because I have NO idea what to do. I keep going back and forth. We are expecting our first baby (it’s a girl!!!) in July. I have been researching up the wazoo trying to decide what’s the best stroller/car seat to get. I have looked at getting the travel system with the infant seat, or a nicer stroller with a convertible seat. I will probably get a sling so I’m not sure if we will leave the baby in the infant seat much while she is sleeping. But then again I would like the option. I also walk a lot, so is a travel system stroller good for long walks? I can’t decide! Do you have any recommendations or things I should look for? Thank you SO much!
We used a Key Fit infant car seat with the Chicco travel system. Then we switched the the Britax Marathon car seat and I also have a BOB stroller. I don’t want to repeat myself- I wrote about both of the strollers and what I love and don’t love about each. I agree though, that it is a hard decision. There are lots of options and things to consider!
I’ll open the floor! What stroller and car seat do you have? Thoughts on it? Recommendations?
