The Best Strollers, According to Baby Experts

“There is no such thing as a perfect stroller,” says Jennifer Saxton, CEO and founder of the Tot Squad, a baby-gear cleaning and installation service. “Parents that are looking for one perfect stroller are not going to find it because you need different things on different occasions.” That’s a big reason why many families own multiple strollers, according to our experts. Also, “each person’s situation is different,” says Mei Ling Nazar, founder of Family Entourage, a website that interviews celebrities about their families. “A stroller that might work for someone that lives in the city may not work for someone who wants to be running every day.” Jennifer LaBracio, gear editor at Babylist, agrees: “It’s important to really examine where you live, whether it’s the city or suburbs, how you’re going to use the stroller, and how much you want to spend.”

But with hundreds of models on the market, there is a way to make the search a little less daunting. “Start by choosing your car seat, and then find the stroller that goes with it instead of the other way around,” says Saxton. “I don’t recommend trying to mix and match. Just find a travel system that’s the same brand. It’s just too many steps.” She has one other piece of advice: “No matter what, just get it in black. I own a cleaning company, trust me, over time all of the spills and stains are going to add up even if you do clean it regularly, and black is going to be the best to hide that. It’ll just give you more longevity.”
