    Default Recommend me a stroller - don't have the first clue how to choose!

    So I'm pregnant with out first child & DH & I are just starting to look around at some of the 'big ticket' items and decide what to buy. There are so many strollers around that to be honest I don't have the first clue how to choose! Therefore I thought I'd put together a list of what we would like from our stroller & see if you ladies could give some recommendations.

    This is what we would like:

    ~ Suitable for use from birth
    ~ Adjustable handler (or taller fixed handle) - DH is tall
    ~ Storage space underneath
    ~ Cover – (view window would be nice but not crucial)
    ~ Travel system would be nice (clip in carrier/car seat etc)
    ~ Manouverable
    ~ Fits in boot of sedan easily - we have a medium sized car & we want space left in the boot for other stuff, not just the stroller.
    ~ Not too heavy - easy for me to lift in & out of car myself, manageable for public transport etc.
    ~ Folds easily
    ~ Not too wide (suitable for crowded shop isles etc)
    ~ Stable & sturdy
    ~ Good for walking or gentle jogs

    Baby Jogger City Versa Love the one handed fold, the reversible seat and how easy the bucket seat is to recline and sit up.

    If you don't want reversible then agile is great choice

    I have the Agile Plus as well. I chose it as it was one of the few that would fit in my small hatch boot. It ticks all your boxes but is awful on gravel/rougher terrain. If you get serious about jogging with a pram you could easily pick up a cheap 2nd hand different pram to live in the garage for jogs.
