10 Best Baby Strollers Every Mom Would Love To Have

It seems like there are a million and one things to prepare for when expecting. A stroller is among those many purchase decisions. There are a variety of strollers to meet almost every need, with a vast amount of accessories, from brake systems to cup holders. The stroller market grows very confusing, in very little time.

Here, we list ten reviews of the most popular strollers.

1-hi-ted

    1. 4Moms Origami Stroller

    The Good:

    This stroller is an absolute must-have for the tech mom on the go. This stroller opens and folds at the touch of a button, making it both extremely easy to store and fully ready-to-roll. The stroller seat has sensors to detect the baby’s weight, so there is no accidental or unexpected folding. The LCD screen reports your pushing spend, the distance you’ve walked, and the temperature. Charge your cell phone with this self-charging stroller. It also has lights to keep mom and baby highly visible while on the go. There is plenty of storage space for baby’s essentials.

    The Drawback:

    Lots of bells and whistles here, but they all come at a very high cost. Price: $850.00

      2. BOB Revolution SE

      The Good:

      This stroller is ideal for those seeking to regain their physique, post-baby. This stroller set a world record in a marathon, rolling strong for over two hours. The Revolution SE easily steers with one hand, has a front swivel wheel, and is ruggedly durable. The swivel wheel makes maneuvering on all-terrain, or through crowds, a breeze. The stroller is available in orange, navy, black, or plum. There’s plenty of storage space to stow all of the baby’s needs while on the go. The canopy is see-through so mom can keep an eye on the baby, while still offering full protection from the sun. The stroller is priced at $350, but can serve as a practical investment for a mom always on-the-go.

        3. Quinny Zapp

        The Good:

        This is a definite on-the-go stroller. It’s umbrella-like design makes it easy to store. Consider lay-away if the $170 price tag is a bit much to shell out all at once. One of the great aspects of this stroller is that it’s compatible with the Maxi Cosi Micro Infant Car Seat, making for a complete infant travel system for around $400. A travel bag and rain shield are included. The stroller is ultra-compact. The four wheels make it easy to move this stroll about. It’s also very lightweight–a bonus every mom will love.

        The Drawback:

        The stroller itself does not have a lot of storage for baby’s things.

          4. Liteway Plus

          The Good:

          The Liteway Plus accommodates the Key Fit infant car seat. It grows with the child and can accommodate a toddler up to forty pounds. This umbrella-style stroller comes in a variety of colors. The seat fully reclines to a flat carrier-stroller as the baby contentedly sleeps. This stroller is priced right and can easily be put on a lay-away plan and paid for in plenty of time before the baby’s arrival. It comes with a sun visor, which keeps the rain safely away from the baby. The fabric is very durable and breathable, and meant to last for many years. Though not generous, there is a small amount of storage space.

          The Drawback:

          The Lifeway Plus is somewhat clumsy to store.

            5. Jeep Cherokee Sport Stroller

            The Good:

            One hand is all you need to quickly fold or unfold this stroller. The Jeep Cherokee Sport Stroller is somewhat reasonably priced at $80 dollars. It’s surprisingly lightweight and has plenty of storage space. The stroller is easy to maneuver through crowded spaces, such as, airports or malls. There is a three-point safety harness to keep a busy, wiggly toddler safely confined to the stroller. As with any stroller it may be converted to accommodate an infant car seat, for an extra cost. There are a variety of fabric colors to choose from, including a gender-neutral green. The stroller comes with a visor to protect against sun and rain.

            The Drawback:

            Accessories, such as a rain shield or hooks to hang necessities, cost extra.

            1-stroll

              6. Graco Metrolite Stroller

              The Good:

              This stroller is an all-in-one travel system. The system includes stroller, car seat, and the base for a vehicle. Easily snap the infant car carrier to the stroller and roll away. The stroller can accommodate a toddler up to fifty pounds. It has a one-second fold, for easy storage and quick unpacking. The harness has five points to keep a baby or toddler safe and sound. The system is reasonably priced at around $220.00. This stroller is equipped with cup holders for both mom and baby, along with a snack tray. The seat sits up or reclines flat for a sleeping child. It’s surprisingly lightweight with durable construction.

              The Drawback:

              Quite honestly, there are none. This system is reasonably priced and long-lasting.

                7. Baby Trend Expedition Jogger

                The Good:

                This stroller is perfect for the mom who wants to get back in shape post-baby. Three-wheeled and extremely easy to stroll, mom and baby can enjoy the outdoors together. The Baby Trend Expedition Jogger is priced at about $120. The front swivel wheel locks securely for jogging and unlocks for more leisurely strolls.

                The Drawback:

                None.

                  8. UPPAbaby G-LiTE

                  The Good:

                  The UPPAbaby G-LiTE is the lightest stroller on the market weighing in at just over eight pounds. It comes in a variety of colors. This stroller has no travel system, which may be a drawback for some. However, consider this a back-up over a bulkier travel or jogging stroller. It folds quickly and offers a smooth ride for baby. There’s a five-strap harness for the baby’s safety. A removable cup holder is included and there is plenty of storage space to accommodate the baby’s needs.

                  The Drawback:

                  There’s not enough value for the $150 price tag.

                    9. Mamas and Papas Armadillo

                    The Good:

                    This stroller comes in a variety of colors, including a rainbow-hue. It adjusts to baby’s comfort, including an adjustable leg rest. The Mamas and Papas Armadillo easily steers over any terrain. It’s rugged and very durable. This stroller conveniently folds with one hand. A toy loop is included to keep the baby entertained while on the go. The front wheel locks to provide easier steerage over rough terrain. It includes the standard five-point harness. It’s compatible with Mamas and Papas, Chicco Key Fit 30, and Maxi Cosi Micro infant seats for a complete travel system. The brake is user-friendly and provides a secure stop and hold.

                    The Drawback:

                    The travel system is sold separately, which increases the $280 price.

                      10. The Dot Buggy

                      The Good:

                      Sometimes a bundle of joy comes in pairs, or you may just need to transport two little ones at the same time. The Dot Buggy is up to the task. The great thing about this product is that a second seat, similar to a motorcycle sidecar, can be attached and detached. It folds easily for storage and can be converted, with a kit, to an infant car seat carrier. A snug baby carrycot can also be added to the stroller to allow baby to lie comfortably flat. The weight capacity is forty-four pounds. The stroller includes a hood to protect the baby’s sensitive skin from the sun.

                      The Drawback:

                      Add-ons, such as car seat and the carrycot, can make this a pricey system.

                      Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

                      Why Is Goal Setting Important to a Truly Fulfilling Life?

                      In Personal Development-speak, we are always talking about goals, outcomes, success, desires and dreams. In other words, all the stuff we want to do, achieve and create in our world.

                      And while it’s important for us to know what we want to achieve (our goal), it’s also important for us to understand why we want to achieve it; the reason behind the goal or some would say, our real goal.

                      Why is goal setting important?

                      1. Your needs and desire will be fulfilled.

                      Sometimes when we explore our “why”, (why we want to achieve a certain thing) we realize that our “what” (our goal) might not actually deliver us the thing (feeling, emotion, internal state) we’re really seeking.

                      For example, the person who has a goal to lose weight in the belief that weight loss will bring them happiness, security, fulfillment, attention, popularity and the partner of their dreams. In this instance, their “what” is weight-loss and their “why” is happiness (etc.) and a partner.

                      Advertising

                      Six months later, they have lost the weight (achieved their goal) but as is often the case, they’re not happier, not more secure, not more confident, not more fulfilled and in keeping with their miserable state, they have failed to attract their dream partner.

                      After all, who wants to be with someone who’s miserable? They achieved their practical goal but still failed to have their needs met.

                      So they set a goal to lose another ten pounds. And then another. And maybe just ten more. With the destructive and erroneous belief that if they can get thin enough, they’ll find their own personal nirvana. And we all know how that story ends.

                      2. You’ll find out what truly motivates you

                      The important thing in the process of constructing our best life is not necessarily what goals we set (what we think we want) but what motivates us towards those goals (what we really want).

                      The sooner we begin to explore, identify and understand what motivates us towards certain achievements, acquisitions or outcomes (that is, we begin moving towards greater consciousness and self awareness), the sooner we will make better decisions for our life, set more intelligent (and dare I say, enlightened) goals and experience more fulfilment and less frustration.

                      Advertising

                      We all know people who have achieved what they set out to, only to end up in the same place or worse (emotionally, psychologically, sociologically) because what they were chasing wasn’t really what they were needing.

                      What we think we want will rarely provide us with what we actually need.

                      3. Your state of mind will be a lot healthier

                      We all set specific goals to achieve/acquire certain things (a job, a car, a partner, a better body, a bank balance, a title, a victory) because at some level, most of us believe (consciously or not) that the achievement of those goals will bring us what we really seek; joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

                      Of course, setting practical, material and financial goals is an intelligent thing to do considering the world we live in and how that world works.

                      But setting goals with an expectation that the achievement of certain things in our external, physical world will automatically create an internal state of peace, contentment, joy and total happiness is an unhealthy and unrealistic mindset to inhabit.

                      What you truly want and need

                      Sometimes we need to look beyond the obvious (superficial) goals to discover and secure what we really want.

                      Sadly, we live in a collective mindset which teaches that the prettiest and the wealthiest are the most successful.

                      Some self-help frauds even teach this message. If you’re rich or pretty, you’re happy. If you’re both, you’re very happy. Pretty isn’t what we really want; it’s what we believe pretty will bring us. Same goes with money.

                      When we cut through the hype, the jargon and the self-help mumbo jumbo, we all have the same basic goals, desires and needs:

                      Joy, fulfilment, happiness, safety, peace, recognition, love, acceptance, respect, connection.

                      Advertising

                      Nobody needs a mansion or a sport’s car but we all need love.

                      Nobody needs massive pecs, six percent body-fat, a face lift or bigger breasts but we all need connection, acceptance and understanding.

                      Nobody needs to be famous but we all need peace, calm, balance and happiness.

                      The problem is, we live in a culture which teaches that one equals the other. If only we lived in a culture which taught that real success is far more about what’s happening in our internal environment, than our external one.

                      It’s a commonly-held belief that we’re all very different and we all have different goals — whether short term or long term goals. But in many ways we’re not, and we don’t; we all want essentially the same things.

                      Now all you have to do is see past the fraud and deception and find the right path.
