Moms and dads on the go know how important it is to have a reliable stroller (especially after your little one outgrows the baby carrier). More often than not, one stroller isn’t enough for a growing family. A lot of times, cheap, collapsible strollers do the trick where sports strollers might be too difficult to transport. Other times, you want something that you can attach into the car seat when it’s time to go. We recognize that strollers aren’t a one-size-fits-all item for most families. With that said, every family should have at least one well-designed option that offers a smooth ride for baby and fits in with mommy and daddy’s lifestyle.
What Is the Best Stroller For Your Needs?
Instead of comparing each stroller against the other, like Thule Urban Glide vs Bob Revolution Flex or Citi Mini GT vs Uppababy Cruz, we decided to lay out the strengths and weaknesses of the five best strollers on the market today. From there, we want you to decide which is best for you since every family has different needs. So, with that being said, here are our five best strollers in no particular order:
My family is partial to this stroller because my husband is a runner and enjoys taking our daughter out on some of his runs. This has big tires and good suspension allow it to roll over bumps in the sidewalk to small sticks and stones without disturbing the baby.
- Best suspension system we tested
- Large tires makes jogging or walking smooth
- Adjustable handlebar great for short or tall moms and dads
- Max weight 75 pounds better than most strollers on market
- Swivel front tire makes turning easy and effortless; locks for jogging mode
- Difficult to fold
- Once folded, not compact and hard to fit in smaller cars
- Nearly 30 pounds, making it one of heaviest strollers we tested
- Handbrake costs extra
The Thule Urban Glide is another great jogger that costs a bit more than it’s competitors, but what you get in return is worth it if you use it often. The front-locking front wheel allows you to go into jogger mode and ensure the stroller stays upright, while unlocking it make it easy to maneuver when in crowded areas.
- Smooth whether you’re jogging or pushing baby in crowded areas
- Good storage underneath
- Easy to break down and compact for storage
- Good suspension and big tires for rocky terrain
- Foot activated brake system only; no hand brake
- Complaints about flat tires more often that we’d like to see
This four-wheeled stroller doesn’t allow for jogging, but it does have a great suspension system and it’s elegant design and ample storage makes it one of the best on the market. The price is again higher than many of it’s competitors, but it’s lightweight and durable design makes it a premier option for any parent.
- Car Seat compatible with MESA car seats; no adaptors required
- High quality leather and aluminum materials
- Lots of color options to fit you and your baby’s style
- Easily collapsible, and unique rear facing toddler seat with 180 degree recline capability
- No jogging capability
- Highest priced stroller we tested
- 50 pound max weight too light for some parents
- Poor suspension
This jogging stroller is smaller and lighter than some of it’s competitors, and you can feel the difference when you run with it. While it doesn’t glide as smoothly as the BOB Revolution Flex, it does fold more easily and fits neatly into any vehicle. We also loved all the optional attachments that allows you to customize this to your liking.
- Lightweight and very easy to fold
- Decent suspension on mostly flat terrain
- Brake in the handlebar used more than expected while jogging
- Smaller wheelbase makes it easy to maneuver in busy areas
- Customizeable features
- Small wheels
- Poor suspension when dealing with bumpy sidewalks or trails
- Poor storage options
Babyzen YOYO+ 6+ Complete
For anyone looking for a collapsable four-wheel stroller and don’t mind paying a premium price for a great product, the Babyzen YOYO+ 6+ Complete is a beautiful product. This lightweight and compact umbrella stroller is great because it folds up neatly and will even fit as a carryon in an overhead storage compartment on an airplane.
- Collapsible and fits into overhead compartments on airplanes
- Extendable canopy for added shade
- Well cushioned
- Compatible with some infant car seat adaptors (additional cost)
- Limited storage
- Straps hard to adjust
