Umbrella Stroller

Mabel is a slender baby--and this fact allowed her to keep using the same bucket-style stroller/carseat combo she rode in as an infant up until just recently. Indeed, even when we finally did bite the bullet and get rid of it (as a car-free family we were quite attached to its easy in-and-out of all the various cars we ride in), she was still within its weight limit, and exceeding the height limit by just a tiny bit. Mostly, we had to get her out of there so the other one-year-olds would not scoff at her as they cruised around in their umbrella strollers. So now she one of her own, bright red, and she enjoys very much the expanded view of the world it affords.


  1. Most umbrella stroller do not recline. However, there are many lightweight strollers that may suit your purposes. We had a Britax one that was durable--I think it was about $70 four years ago. Many people like the MacLarens or Peg Peregos, but they are more money. Years ago, a friend of mine had an umbrella style that had straps to be worn as a backpack when not in use, so that maybe something you want to look into.
