The great stroller debate
The hubs and I want to get LM a new stroller soon. We originally went with a stroller frame – the snap and go – and we LOVE it. It is just a frame where you place the car seat in and go. Very light and it was cheap. However, now that LM is older and bigger (only a few inches away from the length max in his infant seat) we are looking at getting a new one where he can sit up and look around and maybe one where he won’t get so sweaty. We have been bouncing from brand to brand, but I feel like we have finally come down to two different strollers. However, I can’t make up my mind between the two. I’m going to write out the pro’s and con’s for each and if you happen to own either or have an opinion please speak your mind.
Stroller #1 – Chicco Liteway
Cheap – $119.99 at one store and $139.99 at the big store
Has a big basket underneith
I had a hard time opening and closing the stroller in the store and was getting annoyed at it, but maybe I would get used to it.
The shoulder straps are not adjustable
Stroller #2 – Baby Jogger City Mini
It’s cuter and cooler (yes, that counts for something)
It opens and closes very easily
It is a nicer stroller – quality wise I feel
It can do more adventurous things outside, not that we are huge outdoorsy people, but we would like to start going on walks and such
Is $70-$80 really that much between two strollers?
Price – It costs $199.99. I am very annoyed that I missed the sale when the price was $145
It is a bit heavier than the chicco
I am not a huge jogger, but if I got the chicco would I spend my time wishing I had gotten the mini because it’s easier to open and close and it’s a nicer stroller? Is the mini more of a stroller than I need? Will I get annoyed at the extra poundage of the mini? I keep going back and forth in my head. Gah.
