3 Features to Look for in A Stroller

Sponsored with love by Graco

 

I’ve had the opportunity to try out a whole lot of strollers and with each of them, I’ve found the things I love and the things I’m not the biggest fan of. And while I’ve done a lot of reviews in single strollers, I’m new at the whole double stroller thing. But I got to try out the Modes2Grow Travel System and let me tell you, I’m hooked.

If you’ve only got one child, don’t stop reading here because this stroller can be a single or a double — it grows as your family grows and if you ask me, that’s pretty freaking cool.

3 Things to look for when buying a stroller - Best Double Strollers - The Overwhelmed Mommy Blogger

Through the years of trying out strollers, loving some and hating some, here’s my personal recommendation on what to look for in a stroller:

 

1. Lightweight

I’ve tested out strollers that are almost too heavy to put in my trunk and that, my friends, is definitely on my stroller no-no list. This Graco Modes2Grow Travel System is incredibly light for a double stroller. Durable but lightweight so I can pick it up with one hand, no problem!

 

2. Folds Easily

Before Franky was born I was testing out a single stroller to see if I wanted to recommend it to you all and there I stood in the Target parking lot, spending a good 15 minutes attempting to open it up. [If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably remember me posting on stories about this ordeal.] I’m a smart girl and I couldn’t figure it out. I googled, found a YouTube video and still couldn’t figure out how to open this thing. I shook it and pried and pulled and finally, it opened (but I never actually figured out how I did it). 

I finished up my Target trip and once again, stood there for an embarrassingly long time attempting to get it folded. YouTube didn’t help. Shaking it didn’t help. And so, I threw it in the trunk wide open (thank goodness I drive an SUV) never to be folded again... by me at least.

Long story not so short — This one folds with one single button. Like you barely have to even try to shut it and it shuts. And that is what I call a winning stroller feature.

 

3. Grows With Your Family

Of course you don’t want to push around a double stroller if you only have one kid and you definitely don’t want to have to buy a new stroller if you have a second baby so the Graco Modes2Grow Travel System is perfect for just that! You can use it for one bassinet, with your car seat, with one seat, a car seat plus a seat... and the list goes on. This stroller has 9 configurations allowing it to grow as your kids and family grow. Pretty brilliant, huh?

If you’re in the market for a single or double stroller, the Graco Modes2Grow Travel System is highly recommended by me.
