#1 The Travel System

The Travel System is one of the most versatile combinations out on the market now.

It’s basically just a combination of an infant car seat and a stroller that are compatible with each other so that your infant seat snaps into the frame and you can take your newborn with you on all your adventures. Most strollers are suitable for children 4 months or so and up, and so a travel system is nice for those early months where you want to be out and about but also want to keep baby protected. Many brands will sell a pre-made combo of stroller and infant seat, while others allow you to pick your stroller, infant car seat and make your own travel system by also purchasing the compatible car seat adapter. WOW. Options! The nice thing about these is that you buy the set up front, use your infant seat as long as you want, or until baby outgrows it, then you can just use the stroller alone when the time is right. Versatility. Convenience.  [CLICK HERE] to shop travel systems on Amazon.

#2 Lightweight Umbrella Stroller

This is a must for the family on-the-go. It’s light (of course!), folds down small and is extremely portable.

You can leave it in your vehicle for random errands, cruise in and out of stores and most importantly, it’s a great airport travel stroller. You don’t have to worry about taking down clothing racks or running into people in crowded places. It also fits easily into a travel bag also so that you can protect it from damages when flying. 

They come in a variety of styles and budgets so that there’s one for every family’s needs. Some recline, some don’t recline, some stand on their own and others fold down itty bitty.  [CLICK HERE] to shop umbrella strollers on Amazon.

#3 The Compact Stroller

The compact stroller and full-size stroller are very similar.

They both feature all the bells and whistles like recline, foot rests, optional cup holders, storage baskets, etc. The major difference is the size. The Compact Stroller is just a tad bit smaller, usually shorter and narrower than the full-size. It might also have three wheels instead of four for added convenience and portability. They can often be coordinated with an infant car seat by using the appropriate adapter and transform into a travel system. This is typically the main stroller in a household. [CLICK HERE] to shop Compact Strollers on Amazon.

#4 The Full Size Stroller

As mentioned above, the Full Size Stroller is most often just a beefier version of the compact.

As mentioned above, the Full Size Stroller is most often just a beefier version of the compact. It’s typically taller, wider and larger. One major difference though is that the Full Size stroller can often expand to transform into a double (or triple) stroller. It is a great option for growing families, day care providers and families with multiples. The accessories are endless and vary from extra benches for seating, glider boards and car seat adapters. They usually have four wheels and as a bonus, many full size strollers come with a bassinet that clicks into your frame and becomes a pram. [CLICK HERE] to shop Full Size Strollers on Amazon.

#5 The Double (or Triple) Stroller

The Double Stroller can come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Basically, its a stroller with two seats to accommodate your growing family. Now, this is where it gets confusing – Some have two permanent seats, while others have moveable seats that can be switched out and configured into a multitude of options. The City Select by Baby Jogger can accommodate two toddler seats, a toddler seat and infant car seat, a toddler seat and bassinet, two infant car seats, two bassinets, etc. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. 

That being said, there are TONS of options at every budget available.  Some are in-line, meaning both seats are in a single file, one behind the other. Others are side-by-side and some styles can even transform from a single stroller to a double or more!

#6 The Jogging Stroller

The Jogging Stroller is a great stroller for exploring the great outdoors.

It features three wheels for added suspension and maneuverability and most typically has air-filled tires that create a smooth ride for your child. It can off-road like nobody’s business and is great for all the runners out there that want something to keep up with them. Some styles even come in a double stroller option for large families on the go. Many also offer the option to transform them into a travel system for even more off-roading adventures!  [CLICK HERE] to shop Jogging Strollers on Amazon.
