What Is The Best Stroller for a Newborn and Toddler?
Finding the best stroller for your newborn and toddler together is going to make your life so much easier. Let’s face it, having two small kids together is no easy task! I did it. It’s like having twins.
Getting out of the house can be quite the mission and therefore you need to make your life as easy as possible with a stroller that can match your needs and is very versatile.
There are so many strollers out there today that honestly, you can go crazy trying to figure out which is the best one for you.
Through my research, the one that I have found to stand out above the rest in practicality, ease of use and price is the Baby Jogger City Select.
It has 16 variations! It can be used with a newborn as a single stroller or as a double with a toddler as well. It can have a bassinet and a seat together. The seats can face you or face outwards. You choose.
One of the really great things about this stroller is that even with two kids it still fits through a regular door. The other benefit of choosing this stroller above others is that it can be used as a single or double stroller. This is phenomenal in my eyes. When you have two small kids you don’t always need to go out with both of them. One may be in nursery school while the baby is with you at home. When it’s just the two of you, it’s used as a single stroller, when you need to collect the toddler from kindergarten in a few seconds you have a double stroller ready to go!
16 variations is a lot to play around with. The only combination that the Baby Jogger City Select can’t do is 2 bassinets together. If you have twins you can work around this by putting one in the bassinet and one in the car seat.
The Baby Jogger City Select comes with the Baby Jogger patented Quick-Fold Technology which makes folding this stroller a breeze. In just one step the stroller is folded.
In comparison with other strollers, this is not considered to be a lightweight stroller, however, it is sturdy, large and yet maneuvers with ease. The attachments attach with no problem and it will not fall over easily.
The back wheels are 12″ forever-air and the front wheels are lightweight 8″ and come with front-wheel suspension and sealed ball bearings. The front wheels can lock for long distances or swivel for daily use.
Storage Basket and Canopy
The storage basket and the canopy are both large providing you with ample storage room. The canopy is UV 50+ and a peekaboo window and a magnetic opening to quietly check on the baby.
The handlebar is telescopic (adjustable) and comes with hand brakes
The City Select comes in a variety of great colors, purple, black, red, blue, silver and more.
The Baby Jogger City Select is a great stroller for both infant and toddler. It is a stroller that can grow with your family if you have one baby now then when the next one comes along add the attachment and you are all set. If you need a double stroller, the City Select is versatile giving you up 16 different combinations to place your baby and toddler. It can be used as a single or double stroller and I do believe that you get real value for your money with this stroller and therefore conclude that this is the best stroller for newborn and toddler.
Something to note:
In 2019 Baby Jogger did a remake on the Baby Jogger Select stroller. This model is still compatible with the 2018 model, but you can no longer get the bright colors, they changed them to more sophisticated neutral colors. You can get the 2019 model in the following colors: moonlight blue, jet black, slate grey, carbon grey, lagoon teal, and Paloma Beige all with a silver frame. This stroller comes with the second seat and all the attachments. If you want the bassinette that is a separate purchase.
