A Bugaboo, Uppababy, and Britax Walk Into a Bar…

HELP! I’m having a crisis! Ok, scratch that, not a crisis per se but a major dilemma and I need your help. I can’t decide on a stroller. No, I’m serious here. Laugh if you want. I know I certainly would. “Can’t you just pick one?” That’s what I’d think. But have you been to Buy Buy Baby? Have you seen their 3 stories of strollers galore? You have joggers, travel systems, European pram style, umbrella strollers, and everything in between. To say the options are endless, well, it sometimes feels that way.

Do you see what I mean? Infinite options...

Do you see what I mean? Infinite options…

Who would have thought choosing something so seemingly simple would garner this much discussion as well as confusion? To tell you the truth, I thought I had this in the bag and knew exactly what I wanted to go with. BAM- I was done. But then… I would see something else and the original decision I had made was out the window. God love my husband, and all that he puts up with. You’re a saint!

So where are we now? I’ve narrowed it down to three. That’s right, three strollers. The question- which stroller do I go with? I’m going to share the three that I’ve chosen and if you have any experience with these three (positive or negative), I would like to hear about it! Or, if you have a stroller that’s comparable to these, I want to hear about that as well. I’m always open to new ideas :)

 Bugaboo Cameleon

This stroller is the bees knees. Super sleek, comes in great colors, has the pram that I’m such a fan of, great suspension for walking on various terrains, and handles like a dream.

Downside- it’s the most expensive of the three. Plus, in order to fold it up, you have to take the seat off and use two hands. I’m not such a fan of that.


Uppababy Vista

Very similar to the Bugaboo but a tad cheaper. The biggest reason I like this stroller is because you can expand it to accommodate more kids. With the Bugaboo, that’s not the case. With this stroller, you use the same chassis if you want to add another seat. All you have to do is add the rumble seat to the frame or attach the piggyback (skateboard like platform) so your child can stand. Also, it seems to fold easier and you can fold it with or without the seat on. Plus, it has the pram.

Downside- it’s heavier and bulkier than the Bugaboo and I’m not sure I want to be hauling a 25 lb. stroller in and out of my SUV.

Britax B-Agile

This was the wild card. I was completely sold on a pram-style stroller. But then I saw this stroller on sale and tried it out. This is such a lightweight stroller and by far the easiest one to collapse. You can also maneuver it with one hand and it’s much narrower than the two strollers listed above.

Downside- it doesn’t have a bassinet and I’m of the camp that a baby should be laying flat in a bassinet during long walks (which I plan on doing) than in a car seat that attaches to the stroller frame.


Bottom line- I think all 3 are great strollers, made by great companies and I’m sure Baby V will love riding in any of one of them. So which one to choose? Help me decide!
