The word stroller may bring to mind bulky, frustrating contraptions you have to haul around throughout the entirety of your son or daughter’s younger years. That is a daunting prospect indeed. When shopping around, you need to take into account your lifestyle and then go through the anxiety of trying to pick the right one. As a new mother, I know what that feels like! So I’ve checked out the latest models available and found one for every budget and lifestyle. I hope this helps you find the right one for you!
Graco Alano ($162)
Don’t let the lengthy maze of setup instructions intimidate you. It’s quite easy to figure out; you’ll be snapping it together in no time at all. For your child’s comfort, the reclining seat and lively gender neutral colors make any day at the park a delightful experience. For the road, the easy folding and sturdy car seat addition make this stroller oh-so-perfect for new mothers.
Orbit Baby Double Helix ($750)
Two strollers one would agree, are a pain to lug around. Conventional strollers usually don’t morph into double strollers— but this one does. Thankfully, there’s a two-for-one deal here as this double helix stroller combines the comfort and convenience of a single stroller, with double the capacity. Its narrow frame, 360° rotatable and removable seats, easy to install car seat just has no competition. It makes having twins look like a breeze to curious passersby. A minor drawback? Seats are sold separately unless you find a bundle in stores.
JOGGING • IN THE CITY
Schwinn Turismo Single Swivel Stroller ($210)
Athletic moms need not worry about finding child care so they can go for a run. The front wheel locking feature makes this stroller safe for moms jogging off that baby weight. Rubber tabs secure your drink, and folding is easy. Planning on hitting bumpy or uneven terrain? No problem, this stroller is designed for smooth strolls across rough ground. Possibly the only downside is the size to which it collapses (not exactly compact).

For long walks and hours of browsing through the mall, you’ll want your baby to be as comfy as possible. Think Mercedes Benz, stroller edition, it just doesn’t get any more luxurious than this. Another plus, the assembly is foolproof. So why not fork over the extra cash and treat your baby to a first class stroll.
