A Great Everyday Stroller

Strollers are serious business around here. People take choosing the right stroller as seriously as choosing a car, and brands like Uppababy, Stokke, and Bob reign supreme. I looked at those brands, and I may look at them again in the future, but back when I was choosing a stroller, I wanted something a bit more budget friendly. After all, after spending so much setting up Sara's nursury with fine furniture, clothes, accessories, and even paint, I didn't want to spend a lot on a stroller too.

I knew I wanted a jogger travel system, which is a stroller that comes with an infant carrier. Even though I don't jog, I do like to go on brisk walks, and I was planning on joining an exercise group, so a jogger would be best. I began searching Amazon, and I found the Baby Trend Expedition Travel System. At right around $200, the price was great, and it had great reviews too, so I ordered one in Tropic, which is a bright teal color, my favorite!

It was delivered quickly, and was easy to put together. The infant carrier came with a base for the car, which was also easy to install. The stroller folds down easily, and fits nicely in the back of both my suv and in the trunk of my small car.

Getting Sara in and out of the seat is really simple, as the straps easily adjust, and she loves it too!  Whether riding in the stroller or in the car, she almost always dozes off for a nap because she is so comfy. I used the stroller for the first time when she was only two weeks old, taking her for a walk around the neighborhood. It has also worked great at our exercise group! The rubber bicycle like tires give it a smooth ride, and the front wheel locks to keep it from being too bumpy.

And now that Sara is getting bigger and heavier, I have begun to use the stroller without the infant seat. The back is easy to adjust to so that she can recline, and there are cup holders and a snack tray for when she is old enough to use those. There is also a handy parent's tray for me, with two cup holders, and a closable compartment big enough for my phone and keys. The handle is also wrapped in rubber so that I can get a good grip, as well as a long wrist strap that is attached to make sure that I never lose control.

It is also very easy to maneuver. The stroller's frame is really quite small compared to other brands of joggers, and it can turn on a dime, which makes it getting into and out of small spaces and narrow aisles in stores a breeze!

Baby Trend has definitely made a great everyday jogger stroller, and they even have a double version in the same color, which I will be sure to take a look at for when our next baby comes along!
