Stroller car seat combos are the ultimate 2-in-1 deal
Head to a baby gear shop and you’re guaranteed to find parents-to-be staring wide-eyed at all the stroller and car seat options. Even the most seasoned among us can be completely thrown off by the unbelievable number of choices in both aisles. This goes far beyond just color choices (although we agree that’s also important). There are some basic safety standards every stroller and car seat has to include, of course, but aside from those, the choices can feel endless. Allow us to introduce (or re-introduce) you to the stroller car seat combo that’ll make thing at least 50% easier.
Here’s a pro tip: opt for a travel system. This hero stroller + car seat combo is easy—well, easier—and means you just have to make one decision. Plus, buying a travel system is usually more affordable, which is always a bonus. When you’re buying the stroller and car seat together, you also don’t have to stress about compatibility or adaptors. Now, just because travel systems are easier, we never promised you don’t have any decisions to make. But, as always, we’re here to help.
