Much like cars, phones and computers, today's strollers have come a long way from their predecessors. No longer are they the heavy unwieldy contraptions of yore—now they're lightweight, smartly designed and packed with luxury features. In addition to the more standard models, a whole new fleet of specialized strollers have entered the lineup.
For the active mom, nothing beats the jogging stroller. These sleek and sporty models are designed for durability and stability to offer Baby a smooth ride while Mom breaks a sweat. They generally feature three-wheel silhouette with larger tires and fold up compact enough to load in the car. Keep a lookout for outdoorsy features like water bottle holders and adjustable canopies that keep both pushers and riders happy.
Families on-the-go find a friend in convertible stroller designs. Travel systems and car seat frames make it easy to transition from car to sidewalk—simply snap the car seat into the frame. There's no need to wake a snoozing infant or fuss with buckles. Travel systems even feature a more traditional stroller seat that older kids can use once the infant car seat has been outgrown
Made with siblings in mind, multi-seat strollers can be a big help when it comes to family outings. They're especially great for multiples! Nowadays there is a whole array of multi-rider designs that may seat two abreast, several inline or even pair a larger and smaller seat to account for age differences.
