Hey everyone,
I have an 11 month old (and a 9 year old!) and am in desperate need of a great stroller. I don't want anything to pricey or weird... I definitely need a tray for my son and would like it to be durable and somewhat compact enough to get through small isles. I would also love a big basket on the bottom for a diaper bag and possibly my purse. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've already wasted a few hours trying to find a great one and am losing my mind!!! Please help if you can. I'd really appreciate it! :)

Walmart has a Jeep brand, ultra-compact, full-featured stroller for $52. I just saw someone at the park who had her 9mo baby in it & I was *quite* impressed at the compactness & maneuverability of it. At that price, I might have to get one myself. :)

Baby trend jogging strollers. Great stroller, very durable, and I got mine at Target for less than $100

Thanks for responding! I went out a bought a chicco cortina the other day. I might end up taking it back. I don't know yet. I love everything about it, except that it doesn't fold up very nicely. It's kinda awkward, and hard to carry. Hazel-I live in waukesha, Wisconsin... and thanks for offering! Seriously. We'll have to see what I end up doing! :) Thanks for everyone's replies!

Hi there! I have the City mini and i love it! The basket could def be bigger underneath but its not exactly tiny (my 11 pound Yorkie fits comfortably in it when i go into stores). I agree with Liz... the mommy hook is awesome for extra storage. The city mini is easy to maneuver and closed up in a nice compact unit too. You can buy it online or try to get a cheaper one of craigslist.com (all additional pieces have to be purchased separately though which is the only negative.. such as the tray etc.)
Good luck!!!!

I have a Britax B-Agile and love it. The stroller is something you use from birth until around age 5 so I think investing in a good one is worth it.

Get a Jogger. I went through 3 strollers in my first year.. The wheels kept breaking. I got the jogger style and I still have it. I got it when my eldest was a year old. She's 3 now and I use it for my 10 month old. Very durable. It has a decent size basket and a tray too.

that's actually a great idea! I didn't know they made that. I'll have to definitely check that out, especially if I find a stroller with a smaller basket. Thanks!!

I'm sorry I don't really have a suggestion for you, since I need a double stroller, but they do make a thing called a "Mommy hook". It's basically a giant clip that fits on the handle of your stroller and is VERY useful for holding your purse, bags, etc. Even though my stroller has a big basket underneath, I love my mommy hook and use it a lot.
