# 1. Mia Moda Energi Stroller – My Favorite Because I Got It! This beauty is a three-wheeled all-terrain stroller designed for the mom (or dad) on the go. Suitable from 6 months to 40 pounds, Mia Moda Energi has a three position recline and a five point harness to keep your baby safe and comfortable. This stroller turns on a dime and glides with little effort. In particular, I love the swivel front wheel that locks (for running) from the adjustable handlebar. I’m a tall mom, and the adjustable handlebar is a must have for me! It is even compatible with the Mia Moda infant car seat. Snap the infant seat into the frame of the Energi and you have a little stealth travel system for the stroller. The Energi is easy to fold and all the extras make it a must-have for any parenting baby outfit.
# 2. The First Years Wave Stroller, Urban Life: This stroller reminds me of a very expensive version of the Bugaboo. However, this stroller is a fraction of the price of a Bugaboo! New this year, The First Years Wave stroller changes from a baby bassinet to a toddler seat. And with a simple turn of the handle, the Wave goes from being a rear-facing stroller to a forward-facing one. If you are still using an infant car seat, the Viva Freshman Infant Car Seat fits the Wave easily. A universal car seat accessory comes standard with this stroller. This means that you can fit almost any infant car seat in the Wave. The weight limit for the wave is 50 pounds. An adjustable handlebar and a large basket underneath make this the best option for this mom coupon!
# 3. Britax B-Ready Stroller – I love my Britax products! They are hands down the best child safety seats, so why should your strollers be any different? It has 14 different configurations, from forward-facing to rear-facing, as well as inline double stroller options for infant car seats, bassinets and toddler seats. The B-READY is easy to use with features including a large, removable storage basket and an adjustable handle with comfortable grips. This stroller is appropriate for children ages six months to 55 pounds when used with the top seat, or infants from birth when used with the CHAPERON infant car seat (sold separately) or other car seats for babies from leading manufacturers.
# 4. The Ignite Stroller of the Early Years – You can’t beat this price for a top-notch European-style stroller! Its style is similar to that of my Mia Moda stroller. Parents are rated higher than the Combi, this little gem is rated for children from birth to 50 pounds. All eight wheels are six inches in diameter. Pushing this stroller is a dream, as its eight wheels slide around tight corners. Its five-point harness and wide seat make this stroller comfortable even for the little ones. Adjustable handlebars are a bonus for parents on the go. Recline the seat and lower the hood so your little one can ride in peace. Weighing in at just 14 pounds, the Ignite is one of the best options for moms and dads who use water jets.
# 5. Graco Quattro Tour Deluxe Stroller, Rittenhouse – Extremely comfortable, this stroller is like an SUV! The ultra-large wheels ensure that this stroller will go through even the toughest elements. The sturdy aluminum frame accommodates children over 50 pounds. There is a deluxe parent storage tray as well as 2 cup holders. Many parents claim that the lower basket is huge and easily accessible when the stroller is not fully reclined. Another attractive feature is the one-handed collapse system. Accepts all Graco SnugRide Infant Car Seats and Graco SafeSeat Infant Car Seats.
