Finding a stroller was one of the easier decisions my hubby and I made. We bought the Chicco travel system and we have never had one regret. We LOVE it. The stroller is compact and sturdy, turns on a dime. We have a 7 week old daughter, so she is still in the carrier/carseat, and it it works great. It was easy to install base in our car since it has anchors. We always use the stroller to get her around, we even find it easy enough to park it next to our table in a restaurant. I have used the stroller in the layed down position as a temporary bassinet while at my girlfriends house, I just fold a blanket under her, works great. I have even used it as a place to change her in a pinch. It will hold up to a 4 year old I believe. It folds up and stores in the trunk of our Honda Accord easily. It's not super light, nor is it incredibly heavy, and it is not cheap, but the high quality and ease of use makes it a good buy in our opinion.
