The Uppababy Cruz is a 'travel-system' and it can be used with several other Uppababy products like the Mesa car seat and the bassinet. They can easily be attached and released with the help of the buttons at either side of the frame which snaps lock without the need for adapters or connectors. So instead of removing your baby from his bassinet and transferring him to the stroller seat, all you have to do is attach his bassinet/car seat to the stroller frame and you are good to go. See More
Because of the Uppababy's large wheels, measuring 11" in diameter, rides are smoother compared to its competitors. You can stroll outdoors without having to worry about your baby being bumped around on his/her seat because of the shock-absorbing front and rear tires. See More
The fold and unfold process of the Uppababy Cruz is pretty easy. To fold, just pull the gray triggers at the sides and pull the stroller towards the back until the frame folds. To unfold, remove the gray lock keeping the stroller together and pull it upwards using the handlebar, in one motion. See More
The Uppababy has a large basket under the seat where you can store your diaper bag and other necessities while traveling. It also has a wide opening so it is easier to put and reach for things. It has a weight capacity of 25 lbs and some parents even use it as a shopping basket, eliminating the need for another cart to push. See More
When the backrest is reclined to its lowest position, the leg rest can be adjusted inwards to a 90-degree angle which creates a bassinet for your baby. You can use the two pieces of fabric hidden under the leg rest to enclose the sides of the stroller by clipping each piece to the side of the frame. If you fully recline the seat, you baby will have a cozy and safe place to rest. See More
On the canopy there are mesh windows that you can open to let air in. One is on top of the canopy, mainly used by parents to check in on their child and other two are by the back part of the seat. You can open them all, which allows more air flow and will keep your child cool and comfortable. See More
You can use the Nuna Tavo with an infant cushion to support your small infant, keeping them snug and comfortable. Since its seat is wide and roomy (measuring 25 inches from the tip of the canopy), it can easily accommodate even bigger children. See More
The frame of the basket has springs that you can push downwards whenever you need to get something from the basket. This is very convenient especially when the seat is fully reclined since you do not have to push the seat up in order to reach for things inside the basket. See More
This seat can be reclined into 4 angles including an almost flat recline suitable for newborns. Most strollers can only accommodate children from 6 months onwards because they are unable to recline to an angle that can support smaller babies. See More
Sort of like a bunk bed, the Britax B-Ready can carry two children at the same time. Usually, the older child would be placed at the bottom seat while a smaller car seat can be placed on the upper level. This is better than a conventional (side-by-side) double stroller since it takes up less floor space. See More
This is a travel system stroller which means it is compatible with other baby products such as car seats and bassinets without the need for extra attachments or adapters. All you need to do is to put either the seat/bassinet, click it in place, and go. See More
This issue was fixed in newer models but is still worth mentioning since your baby's safety is one of the most important things to consider. This is not directly relevant to the stroller, but the car seat should be compatible with this stroller so it might affect the buying decision. Britax's safety notice Post on CNBC. See More
The Britax B-Ready is a bit on the expensive side, but you will get the most value for your money. Because of its 12 versatile seating options, this stroller can be used from birth up to when your child is bigger, avoiding the need to buy different strollers as they age. See More
It's good but like other reviews, the typical downsides (which I knew would prolly happen) the canopy doesn't stay all the way down, if you hit a bump or anything it pops up one notch which isn't too big of a deal, just annoying. Also I didn't bother with a front tray for baby cuz other reviews said it was bulky and didn't have enough room on it and sat too high up, however we have done fine with just the handle bar accessory I got for it, with the drink holders there. I slimed the tires cuz we have stickers and goat heads where we live and it worked fine. Rides smooth. Also didn't purchase the rain or bug net because reviews said the new model didn't accommodate the old covers. But over all it's ok. If those things bothered you, but an older bob OR a Thule.

I love this stroller! I don't know what some of the other reviewers are referring to when they say it's garbage. I have been using it on a daily basis for almost 5 months now and works great! I find that the maneuverability is easy and smooth. The fact that it has thicker jogging style tires makes it less bumpy and more stable for the baby. I love that I can easily take this stroller where ever we go. For example, we like to walk around a paved lake path that's about 3 miles and I take it into stores to go shopping. I get lots of compliments on how sleek it is. The "click connect" system couldn't be easier. It's so nice to be able to easily transfer the baby from the car to the stroller back to the car. I have a Toyota Corolla and this stroller does take up most of my trunk. It is also on the heavy side compared to lighter (less sturdy perhaps) four wheeled strollers. It is possible and easy to fold and unfold it one handed once you get the hang of it! Also like some other reviewers have mentioned, if you or your partner are tall, this is the stroller for you. I am 5'10" and the hubs is 6'2" and we are comfortable pushing this stroller. The wrist height is nice and high and you also can take full strides while walking and you won't kick the wheels.

I bought this stroller online thinking it would be great to throw in the car and take on shopping trips with the car seat clicking into it. Well....it's NOT so good for shopping, as it is fairly heavy and quite large! NOT the type of stroller I'd envisioned as being an easy way to tote baby around while shopping at department stores, lol. However, it actually is billed as and meant to be a jogging stroller and for THAT purpose, I would highly recommend. It is very sturdy, has nice brakes easy to use, convenient, well made, I'm impressed by the quality. The one annoying feature is that the 'cell phone holder' does NOT accommodate my Galaxy S4, and certainly wouldn't handle larger ones, either, though one can always throw it down below in a diaper bag. This stroller is ideal for suburban lifestyle...keep in garage, take it out and walk or run around neighborhood. It can also handle trails and the beach on firmer, wetter sand. Be aware, though, that it is NOT lightweight for throwing into and taking out of car, or trying to take down stairs if one lives in an apartment or elevated home. Once on the ground and going, it's great for it's intended purpose, but get another, lighter one if you want to use it in retail stores. See More
I LOVE my baby jogger city mini gt. This stroller is the perfect combination of quality, ergonomics, and reasonably priced. My requirements for a stroller were that it be not too heavy, that it be able to go on trails, that I could use it durning newborn, infancy, and toddler years, and that it be under $300. I have arthritis and a lifting restriction of 30lbs. I wanted a light yet sturdy stroller because we go to the dog park every day and live in the PNW and spend a lot of time outside in the rain/mud. I love that this stroller is taller than the britax combo stroller. I have the infant car seat (I did the peg perego 4/35 and the car seat adapter) and I am 5' 4" and I don't have to bend over to get the baby in and out of the infant seat or to do anything with him. I love the adjustable handle bar for the same reason. We do most of our walking on sidewalks, paths, and gravel and so far the stroller has been good at shock absorbing. We had an accident that was entirely my fault, my dog was pulling me one way on the leash and I only had one hand on the stroller and I attempted to turn it. The stroller tipped to the side with baby in it. Thankfully he was buckled in nice and tight, the locking mechanism worked perfectly on the infant car seat and the baby didnt even wake up and was totally fine. This stroller also works great for use for our inside errands, for example going to the doctor or the mall. It is thin enough to maneuver, turn, and I don't feel like a giant a$$hole bringing it inside because I can generally stay out of people's way. Last thing is I love how it collapses. You literally just pull the handle in the seat and it breaks down and goes into the trunk. The only con for me is it doesn't come with a drink holder and I haven't purchased one yet for it. See More
