When it comes to picking a car seat and stroller for your new baby, there are so many options to look at, but ultimately you have to make a decision that fits with your family’s personality and lifestyle. One of our faves, the car seat stroller combo, is actually a real lifesaver, saving you time and space when traveling with your little one. Picking one out, however? That can be somewhat tricky, especially for first-time parents. When choosing yours, you’ll want to keep in mind things like safety, comfort, and maneuverability. It should also be easy to install the car seat and a simple stroller fold/unfold is a must. Check out some of our favorites below.
Chicco Bravo Trio KeyFit 30 Travel System
The Chicco Bravo Trio KeyFit Travel System is a well-priced travel system and is a go-to choice for expecting parents. The car seat is made for babies from 4 to 30 pounds and up to 30 inches while the stroller can accommodate children up to 50 pounds. The stroller folds easily and features all-wheel suspension and a large storage basket, perfect for holding a diaper bag.
Evenflo Pivot Modular Travel System
Next, the budget-friendly Evenflo Pivot Modular car seat stroller combo is lightweight, easy to assemble, and versatile. This travel system features a car seat that will fit infants between 4 and 35 pounds and up to 30 inches. Pus the stroller seat will hold up to 50 lbs. You can even turn the Evenflo into a newborn bassinet, making it one of the more versatile travel systems out there.
UPPAbaby CRUZ V2 and UPPAbaby Mesa
The UPPAbaby travel system is packed with cool features that make it one of the best car seat stroller combos available. The Cruz V2 stroller has one-handed steering, gentle turning and is great on rough surfaces thanks to the updated suspension system. It has a removable toddler seat that can be situated forward-facing, rear-facing, upright, or reclined and can be replaced by the Mesa car seat while traveling. The Cruz V2 comes with a canopy, mesh bug net, and rain cover. The Mesa infant car seat fits infants from 4 to 35 pounds and up to 32 inches and offers flame retardant free fabric options.
Nuna Triv (or Nuna Mixx Next) and Nuna Pipa
New to the Nuna family, the Triv boasts the brand’s dedication to safety while being stylish. The Triv offers rear- and forward-facing seat options, weighs under 20lbs, has a quick release no-rethread harness, a height-adjustable handlebar, a quick one-handed compact fold, and accommodates children from birth up to 50lbs. P.S. We love the Nuna Mixx Next too, which has all the excellent features of a full-sized stroller + excellent suspension. The Nuna Pipa infant car seat has been a favorite for new parents due to the high safety ratings, flame retardant free fabrics, dream drape™canopy, and overall lightweight. It accommodates infants 4-32 pounds and up to 32 inches and has true lock™installation that takes just five seconds to install. (We also love the new Nuna Pipa Lite rx, which has some great, upgraded features!)
Bumbleride Era and Clek Liing
A great eco-friendly option, the Bumbleride Era has all-wheel suspension and air-filled tires giving you a smooth, one-handed push on city streets or bumpy sidewalks. Its extra-long footwell gives you room to grow (up to 55 pounds!) and small footprint makes maneuvering tight spaces stress-free. The Clek Liing infant car seat is the perfect addition to this travel system with the help of these adapters. With many eco-friendly and non-toxic options, this highly rated car seat has a load leg, an SPF 100+ canopy, and offers up to seven recline positions while in the base. It fits infants from 4-35 pounds and up to 32 inches.
