Topic Wiki

I am trying to put a list together of the pro's and cons of the main bassinet strollers:

UppaBaby (UB)
PRO:
so easy to push
great basket (HUGE)
the bassinet is easy to take on and off
the wheels are easy to remove if need be
folds in a sinch
handle bar is great for tall and short people
the rumble seat lets the kid sit like a human being (not slide down)
the break is easy to push and doesnt break easily
the lay back position is great for kids who need to sleep on the go
the sun visor is a life savor
option to use with car seat (need to purchase the adapter)
fantastic customer service

con:
its wide but still easy to push
it can be heavy for some
the lock to close the stroller (it broke on mine)

awesome. thanks
And best place to buy?
Depends on who's having a sale. Nordstrom offers returns even if used (BB&B doesn't on strollers). How quickly do you need one?

So if the price is the same either go with Nordstrom for returns or an out of state store to save on sales tax.

What options are there for double strollers that work with Graco ClickConnect carseats?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

We had the Ready2Grow for a while, though it was more of a triple with one standing in the basket ;D (eventually ripped the basket).

It's great to have for the stage where you don't really want your infant in the actual stroller seat. Past that, the product itself is fine, but it's an inline, and inlines don't compare with side-by-sides IMO.

ETA: It is nice to have your infant up high and facing you, with your toddler facing forward and taking in the view. The basket is very large, but can be hard to access sometimes for larger items.

That's the main thing I meant about inline vs side by side. It's probably even slightly more comfortable when pushing straight on level ground, but once you need to maneuver, it's definitely harder. And the wheels are not what you'd find on a UBV, City Mini GT, etc - which is why I said it's fine on level ground.

Gotcha.

Okay anyone else know of a double stroller that fits graco infant seats? Looking to collect the options.

Thanks!

Pretty sure most doubles will work with an adapter for the car seat. I've definitely seen it on the city mini.
