Top 10 Baby Strollers That Are Best For YOU And Your Needs

One of the few things I would say new parents absolutely need is a stroller. The perfect stroller becomes the pack mule of your day. It carries your coffee, your diaper bag, your shopping bags, your baby, and sometimes your baby’s sibling. If you don’t have the perfect stroller, you might as well be pushing a bum grocery cart—you know, the ones that have a wheel that won’t swivel or a wheel or two that doesn’t touch the ground.

But each parent is different and each family has different needs and priorities. I did a ton of research and I have picked ten of the best strollers for several different parental wants and needs. If you are looking for a great stroller, take a look at the ten I have reviewed to find one that is  perfect for YOU!

 

1 & 2. Luxury Strollers: Bugaboo

If high-end, luxury strollers are on your baby shower registry, direct your family and friends to Bugaboo strollers. Bugaboo is a Dutch mobility company with offices all over the world. Bugaboo strollers are built to get your baby from infancy through the toddler years. Infants can ride in the bassinet—which turns into a reclinable seat as your child gets older—or in a car seat compatible to the stroller’s frame. From city walking to all-terrain landscapes, Bugaboo has a stroller for you.

The Bugaboo Donkey is perfect for growing families. The stroller can be used as a mono or duo stroller and seats kids of different ages side-by-side. Or use it as the only stroller you’ll need for twins.

The Bugaboo Bee3 is new to the market this year. It is compact, lightweight, and easy to maneuver—and it’s easy enough to fold with one hand. With the extendable, UPF 50 sun protection canopy, your child will be sure to be protected on both rainy and sunny days.

All Bugaboo strollers give you the option to customize your own from the frame to accessories.

3. Super Safe Stroller: Phil & Teds Navigator

Phil & Teds offer several strollers in their Inline series, which give parents the option to add a clip-on seat kit which turns a single stroller into a double stroller. These strollers adapt to change with your growing kiddos and family. Ideal for newborns to preschoolers, Phil & Teds Navigator has 26 riding configurations, including rear facing seating options and the ability to accommodate two infants, two toddlers, or a mix of the two.

But the coolest and best thing about this all-terrain, slim, and easy to maneuver stroller is its auto stop safety feature. When in use, a brake wire on the stroller’s handle bar is held down when the stroller handle is being held. When the handle is released, the auto stop feature kicks in and the stroller stops moving, even on hills. The brake wire can also be locked, giving you the option to not use this feature, but the manufacturers suggest you use the wrist strap in this case. The auto stop feature adds a ton a value, however, to this already high-quality stroller choice.

4. Best Travel Stroller: Mountain Buggy Nano

The moto for this stroller is Keep Calm and Carry-On. The Mountain Buggy Nano has won awards for its innovative design. Built for safety, convenience, and travel the Nano will always get you to your destination. Nano weighs less than 13 pounds and when folded measures in at 22 x 12.2 x 20”. It slides easily into a custom travel bag, which can be worn like a satchel or carried by the exposed stroller handle. Instead of taking the risk of damage when checking your stroller, this one fits into the overhead compartment inside of the plane.

If you are traveling with an infant, Nano can also be used as a travel system for your baby and their car seat. It is made with a car seat adapter and accommodates most leading car seat brands. Nano offers rear wheel suspension and front wheel swivel for a smooth ride. Mountain Buggy Nano is ideal for infants and children up to the age of four.

5. Best Selling Standard Stroller: The First Years Jet

If your stroller needs consist of inexpensive and durable, The First Years Jet Stroller is the way to go. The Jet is the #1 Best Seller in standard, lightweight baby strollers on Amazon. It has a five point harness for maximum safety, swivel wheels for easy maneuverability, and weighs in at only 11 pounds.

The storage compartments below the seat and behind the seat offer plenty of room for extras and the seat can be placed in multiple reclining positions. And while this stroller, which can be easily folded with one hand, can be used by a child up to 50 pounds, it cannot accommodate an infant. But for travel or everyday use with a baby six months and older, you can’t go wrong with the Jet Stroller.

6. Best Tandem Stroller On A Budget: Graco DuoGlider Classic Connect

When our daughter was born, the idea of getting a stroller that would accommodate more than one child was not a thought in our heads. When we were ready for our second child, we figured we would just get a second stroller if we needed one. When our twins—our second and third child—were born, our stroller shopping experience changed dramatically. Twins are buy one, get one free until they are born. Then they get very expensive.

The Graco DuoGlider Classic Connect is a quality tandem stroller for a very affordable price. You don’t have to have twins to use this stroller, but it fits two Graco Classic Connect car seats and is able to keep your family moving from infancy to the toddler years with the ability to hold two 40 pound children.

The two stadium-style seats have foot rests, snack trays, and the ability to recline; the back seat reclines all the way to a flat position. The front wheels that swivel or lock, the one handed self-folding design, and the large bottom storage bin add great conveniences to a great priced stroller.

7. Best Travel System: Britax B-Agile And B-Safe

Britax is synonymous with first-class safety and top-quality products. And that’s why I have never felt bad about spending extra money on Britax brand car seats. It’s also why I am not surprised that the Britax B-Agile and B-Safe Travel System is Amazon’s #1 Best Seller for baby stroller travel systems.

The B-Agile Stroller is for infants while used with the B-Safe car seat, and for older children up to 55 pounds. The B-Safe car seat has a 30 pound limit to get you through the first year of your child’s life. It also offers industry leading rear, front, and side impact protection. The B-Agile stroller has a padded, five-point harness, and adjustable seat. It is also lightweight and features a one handed quick-fold design. The stroller and car seat combo offer the best of both worlds: safety while on the go and convenience while running errands. It also has the longevity to be the only stroller you’ll ever need.

8. Best Everyday Stroller: Baby Jogger City Mini

Baby Jogger makes jogging strollers, but the City Mini is not one of them. The Baby Jogger City Mini stroller is the best everyday stroller for urban and suburban use. It is also the company’s most innovative and award winning product. City Mini is compact, weighs less than 17 pounds, and turns on a dime. It has a five-point harness, multi-position seat, with a large UV 50+ sun canopy and plenty of storage room underneath and behind the seat.

The front wheel suspension and ability to swivel make for an easy and smooth ride. When you’re done strolling for the day, the one handed fold and auto lock features make City Mini easy to store. And the sky’s the limit when it comes to adding accessories to make this stroller exactly what you need it to be. A car seat adapter turns City Mini into a travel system and a glider board turns it into a stroller built for two. City Mini Double gives you all of the same features, but for twins or two children.

9. Best All-Terrain And Fitness Stroller: BOB Revolution Pro

Having kids shouldn’t slow you down. Or limit where you want to go. The BOB Revolution Pro is perfect for urban use, trail use, or anything in-between. This stroller can push its way through grass, gravel, and slush.

The padded handle bar has nine positions for the perfect fit while you walk or jog, and the state of the art adjustable suspension system provides a smooth push for you and a smooth ride for your child. The seat is reclinable, padded, and has a five-point padded harness for safety and comfort. The wheels are made of high impact polymers and the front wheel can swivel or be locked in place.

The BOB Revolution Pro has a standard wheel brake when not in motion, but also has a hand break and wrist strap for added safety when on the move. This stroller has plenty of storage space and can be turned into a travel system by adding a car seat adapter.

All of BOB Revolution models are terrific for all-terrain fitness. And they all come as double strollers too. I have the Revolution SE Duallie for my twin boys and I love it almost as much as I love them. I can easily push them and hold the dog’s leash with one hand and hold a cup of coffee in the other. When I choose to put down the coffee, I have no excuse to not get out for a run. BOB really does make the best jogging stroller on the market.

10. Best Alternative To Infant Travel System: Baby Trend Snap N Go EX Universal Infant Car Seat Carrier

The Baby Trend Snap N Go EX Universal Car Seat Carrier accepts all of the major infant car seat brands and allows you to keep your baby in their seat while taking them out of the car to run errands or go for a walk. While most stroller brands offer accessories to turn their products into travel systems, the cost to do so is not always affordable. The Baby Trend Snap N Go lets parents get out from day one without breaking the bank.

The Baby Trend Snap N Go has a tray with two cup holders for mom or dad and a large storage basket underneath. It is lightweight and has a one handed fold design. It also comes as a double carrier to accommodate two infant car seats at once.

No matter what your strolling needs are, it's necessary to just get out and go. I hope you will use my stoller list as a helpful guide to find what best fits you and your family so that you can get out of your home with a minimum of stress and fuss. Stroll on.
