Life doesn’t have to stop once you have your baby, and manufacturers from Graco™ to Jeep™ are making that an even truer statement with their production of baby strollers perfectly suited for travel wherever you go

Best Stroller #1: Evenflo X Spot Plus Convenience Stroller

First up is the Evenflo X Sport Plus Convenience Stroller. It may have an impressively long name, but this stroller is all about minimalism and functionality. Sturdy enough to still be considered a standard stroller, it also has a convenient bi-fold frame perfect for road trips and other modes of family travel. Also included is a large basket for storage purposes, easily accessible from both the front and back of the stroller. With plenty of room for baby’s most prized possessions, the Convenience Stroller can support children up to 40 pounds and is a favorite with parents who want a quality transportation solution without a lot of expense or hassle. Evenflo recently received a 5-star rating on Amazon.com for this model and design. (Update: This exact model is no longer available, but you can see other similar Everflo stroller models here.)

Do you have children?

Do you have children? Have you ever buy any stroller? Have you ever travel with stroller?

All of those strollers that mentioned in the articles, none of them are good. It is either too heavy or too big or too light. The best one is Peg Perego, www.pegperego.com, made in Italy. You should check on it.

The price is in the middle range but the function and the quality is far better than any of those mentioned. Don't you ever fall for Maclaren, it is not good at all.

The thing you should consider are:
1. Weight. Can not be too heavy or too light. Can you imagine to bring a heavy stroller while you are travelling? It can break your back.

2. Size. Not too small and not too big so it is easy to store. Easy to store at home and at your car trunk. There are two size you need to think about. Size after deployed and size in folded position. The Evenflo Stroller will be the the smallest one, just like Maclaren stroller because they have the same design. The others are just too big, either in folded or after deployed position.

3. Durability. Need to get a though one so it will last long.

4. After sales service. Get to know the location or contact for after sales service center so when one of the part is missing or broken, it can be easily replace. Most of the time, the wheel will be the first one to break and most popularly caused by escalator.

5. Structure Design. Some strollers are easily fall back, specially, when you hang the baby back on the stroller handle. This is easily happen with The Evenflo stroller and Maclaren stroller. So, get the sturdy one. Sturdy in sitting position and sturdy in sleeping position. This is important if you don't want your stroller fall to the back.

6. Age limitation. Not all stroller designed for all age. Some design for newborn and some design for 6 months old baby. Stroller designed for newborn, the back rest can be tilted into a full flat sleeping position or there is a special carriage just like Graco stroller.

If you buy Peg Perego, you will get the best of all things above in it. Good luck in finding the best stroller.
