Stroller thoughts once again

Posted by Alina on Thursday Sep 11, 2008 Under Baby Products

It has been two months since I wrote my original post about how I chose my stroller. After much research I chose the Baby Jogger City Series Elite. Back in July, I said that having had some experience as a mom, I may have chosen a different one because I could not have my son facing me once he grew out of the basinette. I’m taking back what I said. I am LOVING this stroller. The one fantastic feature that I did not talk about is how much the seat reclines (near flat). My son gets tired of being in the seated position after an while and this feature allows him to hang out on his tummy play, and look around through the netting in the back of the stroller. It’s also a great feature for when he falls asleep for his nap, because I can recline to almost flat, which keeps him sleeping longer. I have not seen many strollers, except perhaps Phil and Ted’s, that allow for an older child (beyond basinette age), to lie almost flat, and get some tummy time in the stroller.

Because this stroller reclines so much, it is not recommended for jogging or running, but it is absolutely wonderful for walking around New York City. The large (12″), inflatable tires make it very easy to maneuver on any surface, including uneven sidewalks, curbs, grass, and even subway stairs (which I had the pleasure of negotiating earlier today).
