Travel Strollers and Car Seats

Baby Jogger City Select

Now that Baby C has arrived and Baby B is still a toddler, we knew a single stroller would not be enough. Therefore after careful consideration, we decided on the Baby Jogger City Select Stroller with 2nd Seat. It has 16 unique combinations with two seats and while Baby C is young, it has an adapter which works with our Peg Perego car seat. It’s easy to maneuver and we love that it folds with one simple step. The only downside is it’s heavy for traveling.

Baby Jogger Car Seat Adaptor

A Baby Jogger Car Seat Adaptor is a must if you have car seat models by Maxi Cosi, Peg Perego, Britax, Graco, Chicco and Evenflo. It’s easy to connect and allows a couple different configurations with the City Select stroller.

Clek Foonf

Our favorite car seat for our boys. The Clek Foonf features the react safety system which reduces forces on the forward facing child in by up to 40% – we love this feature for traveling since we often are in a car with drivers unknown to us. It’s super easy to get in and out of the car because the Foonf is designed with latch system, making proper forward-facing installation effortless. But it is heavy, so if you plan to travel with the Foonf you will want to invest in the Weelee a universal travel bag.

Clek Weelee Travel Bag

Traveling with any carseat can be a burden, so purchasing a Clek Weelee Travel Bag is a great option to make traveling easier. We love the Weelee since it folds flat when not in use, fits a number of types of car seats like the Foonf, and it also has extra room to spare for additional items that don’t fit in your suitcase. Trust us, you will not be disappointed in this purchase.

Peg Perego Vela Easy Drive

Picking a stroller is a tough decision. With our first son, we looked for weeks before finally deciding on the Peg-Perego Vela Easy Drive Stroller. I wanted something lightweight and easy to maneuver. I also wanted a stroller which combined with an infant car seat. The car seat/stroller combo was very important so while Baby B was an infant, we could travel without having to lug a separate car seat. The stroller has the appropriate adaptors built in so we didn’t need a separate adaptor to accommodate the car seat.

I initially bought the 3 wheel 2010 Vela stroller. The three wheels did not work very well so Peg Perego converted it to the new 4 wheel easy drive version. From my experience, I would not recommend a light weight 3 wheel stroller. I’ve seen lots of jogger 3 wheel strollers and they look far more sturdy and likely a much better buy if you want 3 wheels. We do like the new Easy Drive and are happy with the 4 wheels. Peg-Perego Si Light Weight Stroller is another great option.

Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Infant Car Seat

The Peg-Perego Primo Viaggio Infant Car Seat was a great choice for us. The car seat can be used without the base (perfect for traveling) and it’s also acceptable for air travel.

Mountain Buggy Travel Bag

Our City Select Stroller is big and it was expensive. And although we always gate check our stroller, we prefer to put it in a bag to help reduce the amount of damage and scrapes. We have the Mountain Buggy Travel Bag. It fits our City Select and we do not need to take the wheels off. We only need to take off the double seat if we are using it, making it easy to pack when at the gate getting ready to board the plane.


Note: We use all of the products found in the baby travel gear section and would recommend them to our friends.
