  • Seriously, just get one of those $10-$15 umbrella strollers. We got one of the nice expensive ones with our first and while it's good for trips to the zoo and that kind of thing, its a pain in the butt for every day use. It's one of the lightweight ones too. I finally got one of the cheapy umbrella strollers and what a difference! As long as they can sit up on their own, I think those are the best.

  • Combi- It is very light-weight. It folds down compact and has a carrying strap.

  • I absolutely LOVE my Chicco Liteway Stroller

    It is light weight and folds up small like an umbrella stroller, but it also fully reclines and has a backet underneath, cup holder etc. It folds up easily and aoutomatically clips closed and then there is a little carry handle.

  • NOT a Jeep Jogging Stroller- it's the opposite of compact.

  • I would get an umbrella stroller. Cuz I have a graco Disney stroller, and its cute in all but its such a hassle to lug around and to even fit in my car. Those umbrella strollers are much more convenient.
