I admit it, I have a serious stroller obsession problem. I cant help it! I try, I really do. I have two children. My son is 2.5 yrs and my daughter is 8 months and I have 5 strollers! And I have been through many many many mistakes. I am quite pleased now with my current collection; I have the baby joggerr city elite dbl, the combi twin (for my dbls) and they are both fantastic. The combi twin folds to the size of a golf bag which is incredible for a dbl stroller with indiviual recline, canopies, and baskets. Its truly great. I also have the maxi cosi perle as my umberella stroller and its good too. I recently added the maxi cosi foray as my full size single stroller and the zapp as my travel stroller.

lol i have one.. i have one and is small for my son and i dont have the carseat for my 2 week old to lock. im trying to sell it. my son is 2.6 yrs and i just had baby number 3, she is 2 weeks old and i need an umbrella for my son and a double for both of them, but im having a difficult time with money at the moment :(.. but i knew someone that had a difficult obsession problem with strollers.. she had 14! so me and a few moms talked her in to selling them! she got a good amount of cash from them and was able to buy something useful and fun for her daughter. try selling them and keep one that you need for both, i know its hard but you got to think of the clutter! trust me, im having a problem with that and its because im not able to clean much with 3 kids at the moment lol... good luck!

I have three children three and under, and I have seven strollers. I have the stroller and carrier combo, then another big stroller like the combo. Two double strollers(because one folds up alot smaller for travel) and three umberella strollers so they all can have thier own. : )

well ive only got 1 and my son is 5 months old. Its a bugaboo bee and it may have cost an arm and a leg but i absolutely love it! And because I don't currently drive I take it EVERYWHERE. I even want to use it for my next kid (provided I don't fall pregnant before bubs is out of the pram stage which is like what...3/4 years??) although if he's anything like his dad (and he's proving to be) he won't want to be in a pram at 2 years of age he's so busy!

I know what you mean I have a three month old and i have 4 strollers and 3 car seats. You get one and it does not work the way you like so you find another that does the thing you want and you cant just get rid of the other one so you save it for emergencies. My favorite stroller makes into a fully enclosed bed which is great for my newborn but I bought 3 before I figured that out.

i have 3, i have my origanl which is the fisher price 3wheel jogger travel system. i have the steelcraft phoenix stroller for when i went out in someone elses car and i now have the baby jogger city select which is my everyday pram as i have 2kids under 2 now. and the other 2 pretty much just sit in the garage. im actually thinking of selling my jogger and just keeping the stroller and the new pram at least then if i only have to take one child i will have a pram and i can send one with the other child.

wow to each there own i guess...when i had my son i had two stroller...one graco travel system(loved it), and an umberella stroller(hated it).....

the umberella stroller always seemed like i was slouching to push it, and im not very tall..........so we gave it to a co worker to send to the phillipines .

now that i have my daughter i bought an in step 3 wheel swivel jogger (want to run more) off kijiji that i love.

when my daughter is out of her infant carseat i will sell my travel system to someone who could use it till it expires (i'm not planing on having anymore at the moment lol)

i found that the graco had everything i wanted the canopy and basket were huge the carseat had a pull strap to tighten the harness and the stroller laid flat for when she slept

so 2 for me was enought but i never needed a dbl as my children are too far apart in age

I have two, yet I only have one child, I have a simple cheap canopy stroller and a very nice Jeep Brand jogger stroller, at one point with only one child I had 6, it is a crazy thing to collect but you have to try the different kinds to see which you like.

I have two kids, one almost 5, the other 1 year old, and I had 2 strollers, one I don't use anymore because it's broke, the other one is perfect for all occasions. I received an umbrella stroller, but gave it back a few weeks ago.
I can't imagine girls, where do you keep all those strollers? I have problems storing this one, and I have a big house.. and a lot of other things, I guess.. like toys all over the place :p

hello just joined this group, i have had a massive obsession with prams, pushchairs, strollers - my daughter is 3 now and ive only got 2 now but have had 5 at one point and throughout her first 2 years i went through 16 brand new prams and strollers, i get soo bored so easily so the easiest way was to keep buying!! next time i have sworn to only have one pram and one stroller but when the time comes we will see!!

I have 3 strollers for my 5 month old... we started out with the stroller that fits the car seat, but it was super crappy so we purchased a better jogging stroller (which also happens to fit our carseat) and we have an umbrella stroller. I would imagine if we have another baby anytime soon, we will need to get a double stroller too! LOL

Yay! Another person with a stroller obsession. I too bought quite a few before finally deciding on a couple. My first was a winnie the pooh balls of fun stroller. It was great for shopping, a 3 wheeler for walking as I didnt have footpaths, then a reverse handle stroller as I decided I wanted my baby facing me, then I bought a mothers choice umbrella stroller for short trips. Then when I was expecting again I bought a steelcraft cruiser travel system with bassinet & capsule for my new born. That was ok but then found my 2yr old still wanted to be pushed so we upgraded that to a steelcraft strider plus which is excellent with the two of them. We also have a layback umbrella stroller & a baby jogger city elite double. And I still find myself looking at strollers wherever I go. My two girls are now 2.5yrs & 7mths and I am still the proud owner of 6 pushers :)

If you're looking for a compact side by side dbl stroller the combi is the best if folds up so small and is easy to carry and maneuver. I loved mine but as y 5 yr old has outgrown the stroller I broke down and sold it. I now just have a simple umbrella for the 3 yr old in case we go to mall or long walks.

I LOVE strollers!!! I have... Ummm, lets see... 1,2,3..

ahh.. 4 .. a very light weight no fuss no canopy umbrella stroller, a heavier duty umbrella stroller (in red) with a canopy and cary strap and basket, a light weight-graco (basic one that the baby carrier comes on) and my favorite Jeep Stroller (3 wheel jogger) this one is amazing, rolls over anything, has a huge basket, nice brakes, relclines, tons of storage pockets, the tray flips so it's easy in and out with my son and it has a toy steering wheel on it which he never tires of, the canopy comes WAY down and totally blocks the sun with a see-threw window for baby and a peeka boo window on top for mom, nice cup holders, folds up easy (it's a little bulky though.. can't have it all! ... but it fits in the shower in the RV for travel!) and, oh yes.. Speakers to plug in your ipod. yeppers. Like that one.. Under $150 too! and if you want to count it, 5: a bike stroller.

I have a stroller obsession as well. After my first I realized how important a stroller really was since I went through about 4 trying to find the perfect one. Once I decided to have 2 more kiddies close together I knew finding the perfect double stroller was key so I did research and found my ultimate favorite Phil and Teds sport stroller with a doubles kit. I LOVE love love that stroller!! I think phil and teds has put my stroller obsession to rest. I use it for every occasion and will most likely use it for the next few years till my kids no longer need one and donate it to another mother in need of a great double or single or jogger stroller :)

[deleted account]

I have 3, but I only use 1. I have a Graco that came with a travel system, an umbroller which stays in my husband's car, and a Baby Trend jogging stroller, which I use the most. I have a 1 year old. I didn't want to split up my Travel System in hopes of future children, and the umbroller was for emergencies only when we forgot one of the others.

I used to have 7 strollers, most of them are hand me downs or bought from garage sales. All are in great condition. I lost the oldest one it finally broke :( it was an Even flo duel set stroller & carseat carrier too. 1997 that is how old it was then and it broke in 2008 :( parts over the years just broke & worse off. same goes for thefaded blue jogging stroller. That has been in the California weather and runs so much I even wore out the bottom little carrier adn teh strap wrist belt for safety keeping the stroller with you at all times also finally worse out :(. It still works. The rest I sold so I have 2 left now. I love my 2006 Jeep stroller adn my duel Trailor Hopper? It has a Kangaroo on there it 2005 its beat worn & faded from the constant runs & walks I even had to repair the front wheel from a plastic wheel to a wheel taken off a mangled store cart... After a few adjustments and manips It worked! Too bad that I cannot place a nice 16" tire for the front to make it more smooth. With three kids its hard to actually get a decent work out... My oldest son is in 1st grade. So I do use my trailer stroller... just not this week. its going to be too hot to enjoy my excersises/walks.

i admit i had like 7 or 8 at one time just for one child. i know that is a lot but i had every single kind you could buy with the exception of a jogger which i would love to get but cant afford one right now. I even have a double stroller and only have one child, but i use that when i walk to the grocery store which i can see from my apt window so y drive. i have downsized my collection to just 2 graco strollers and i love them. a single and a duoglider. my car seat fits on both of them which is nice cause we have at least one baby due in march i go for an ultrasound to see if it is twin on sep. 2 cause i am measuring large for how far along i am.

[deleted account]

That is a lot! I only have 3. I have a 2 yr girl and a 4 month boy. I have the stroller that came with the carseat, a double, and an umbrella. I use the double the most of the time, but if we go outside I use the single one for my boy, and before I had my boy I used the umbrella stroller for my girl cuz i did not need a big one for her anymore.
