I strongly, strongly advise against a convertible for a newborn.

You should really get an infant carseat then buy a convertible one once baby outgrows the infant one. The infant carseat is the one you can remove from the car to carry baby in, which is a HUGE bonus - you don't have to wake baby when you're out running errands, he can just stay sleeping while you carry him around. Having to take baby out of the seat and put him back in while running errands will piss him off and it's very annoying. Also, you'll have to find something to put him in while you're in the store, for example. It's also SO much easier to buckle him in the seat in the house then click it into the car.

You can also buy a travel system where the carseat clicks into a stroller frame - HUGE plus! This is what we had: https://www.amazon.com/Chicco-Keyfit-Caddy-Stroller-Frame/dp/B005JDOYF0 & the matching Chicco Keyfit 30 carseat.

I understand wanting to save money, but your life will be so so so much easier with an infant carseat. I'd find another item to save money on if money is an issue.

Also, convertible carseats don't have the neck support that infant ones do because they don't recline as much, so your newborn's head will flop forward, which is a safety issue on its own (positional asphyxiation).

You can have a sturdy stroller that also has a snap-in option for your car seat. Not sure what reviews you saw that said the strollers were collapsing on their own, but it might have more to do with the method by which they collapse than having a car seat attached. Just a guess.

You might want to consider a travel system. You can get the Chicco KeyFit with base and a stroller that will last through the toddler years for $310. Another option is to get the stroller you’ve already picked, and get a car seat caddy to use while your baby is still an infant. The Chicco caddy is $100.

We were fortunate enough to be gifted the Chicco Keyfit 30 system and the accompanying stroller frame. These things were THE BEST. The base installs in less than a minute and then you just plop the car seat in it and it clicks and secures into place. To get it out you just press in the little handle deal and it comes right out. Easy AF and such a time and back saver. Then if you get the stroller frame the seat will click into that the same way. It folds up with ease and has plenty of storage space. All the while not really having to disturb the little one. We used that shit ALL the time. Only downside is it's pretty expensive, but you're looking at a stroller, carseat and base that will last quite a while.

On the advice of friends, I got a Pack and Play to use as a cosleeper, as well as an extra one for the living area. I'm getting two cribs that can convert to toddler beds, but we plan to only set up one at first. My ideal set up would be to have a non-mini Arm's reach cosleeper in the bedroom, but I haven't yet found one at reasonable price.

Some babies love swings and others dislike them, so I'm starting with one swing, a rock n play, and a vibrator/bouncer and I'm going to see which item is most popular. I've been told that all of those can cause head deformities if the babies are in them for too long, so I have two maya wraps, two slings, and an ergo so we wear them.

I went with the Chicco keyfit car seat wise since it had the highest rating on consumer reports and, after playing with what friends had, I liked it the best. The chicco cortina together is very nice and I loved it when I tried it out, but it wouldn't fit in my car, so I found a used Snap N Go for $25 instead. I decided to get that style instead of the side-by-side because I've heard of people having problems fitting the side-by-side in small doorways.

In addition to the double stroller, I also got a Chicco keyfit caddy because I plan on wear one baby and push the other around.

I decided to get the car seat strollers for when they are young because I want to make things as simple as possible when I'm still new to this whole parenting thing. I also want to try out a single versus a double stroller since I know people who prefer each, and the frame strollers are small enough that I can fit both in my car.

I've been using craigslist, a local message board, and Mothers of Multiples consignment sales to get good deals on a lot of items, so in the end, I expect to spend less on my strollers than many people pay for one new one. I'm buying the crib and carseat new, and I've gotten a few other items as gifts, but everything else is used because I'd rather be overstocked and try out items than find myself lacking something useful later.

As far as books go, I highly recommend When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets and Quads because of its scientific, fact filled approach. Mothering Multiples for breast feeding techniques. I'd also recommend going to your library and checking out various books on raising twins. I can't remember all of the books I found helpful because I read so many. For general child care, Happiest Baby on the Block is a must read (or see, there's a DVD). My friend who had a premature baby said that this book saved her life. At first she thought her daughter just didn't like being swaddled, but it turned out that you are supposed to swaddle premature babies differently than full term ones. Now that her daughter is properly swaddled, she's much calmer. That book also inspired me to spend the money on a sleep sheep which is currently kidnapped by a friend.

Another thing that you may want to consider is cloth diapering. I've attended a few Mother of Multiples groups, and cloth diapering has been repeated many times as a way to save money on diapers. Even though I live in a small town, there are local stores and groups for parents to share techniques and tips on cloth diapering. Mine are due to November, so I haven't personally tried it out, but on the advice of other multiple members, I have a bunch of premature diapers for when they are newborn, and a growing collection of cloth (bought used to save money) for once they are bigger. Since I'm having two boys, I'm also making/buying cloth wipes so I can avoid pee mishaps during changing time. You can also buy wash cloths in bulk that perform a similar function, but I've priced making my own or buying used as cheaper.

Congrats!

We got the stroller that the carseat can just snap into. Our 1MO only likes the stroller if you're willing to really zig-zag a lot and make it pretty bouncy. This one

We are about to get a Ring Sling, because holy hell, the Moby wrap is hot AF. The moby should come with a warning that it's only comfortable if the air temp is less than 80. Even better probably 70.

I would absolutely not get a $900 stroller, unless you're very wealthy and just want it. But if that's the case, I'd probably rather have the overly expensive Snoo Smart Sleeper than an overly expensive stroller, since sleep is gonna be the thing you aren't getting enough of.

u/ValkoSipuliSuola · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I looked at both in the store and decided on the Chicco because it was easier to install (it took all of 20 seconds) and because it fit better in my car's tiny back seat. It also just felt sturdier, although I don't know that that's necessarily true.

They're both heavy, so I would highly recommend a snap-on stroller base. I bought the Chicco brand one, but Baby Trend makes one that will work with the KeyFit too. Plus it's cheaper. If this is your first child I would not recommend getting a convertible car seat just yet. You're going to have a hard enough time maneuvering your newborn in to that carseat and getting him or her strapped in safely with it sitting on a flat surface in front of you. Now imagine trying to shove your little bundle of joy through the small space between the carseat and the back seat, get it all strapped in and comfy, buckled up without pinching anything, all while supporting its floppy little head. And you can forget about not waking him or her up! Oh, and did I mention you'll be leaning over and in to the car to do this? Yeah, not so good for your back either.

u/MamaBearT2019 · 2 pointsr/Oct2019BabyBumps

Oh ok. Well maybe just something like this that she can put the carseat on? Cheaper than most strollers and as much support as your car seat has.

Yes there are Chicco travel systems. I'm going with a CitiMini GT stroller and there is an attachment you can buy for it to fit certain car seats including the Keyfit. There's also a Chicco Keyfit Caddy - http://www.amazon.com/Chicco-Keyfit-Caddy-Stroller-Frame/dp/B005JDOYF0/?tag=lucslis-20

I was in the same boat. I registered for a BOB Revolution and one of the infant carseat adapter stroller/frames for the first 6 months. To be honest, I just don't feel like hauling the BOB everywhere from the get go. I intend on having the BOB be used for most outings later on and getting a cheap umbrella stroller some point down the road.

u/recercar · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Lol my bad. I don't know why I kept saying cabby, it's caddy. https://smile.amazon.com/Chicco-KeyFit-Caddy-Frame-Stroller/dp/B005JDOYF0

Like these. I've seen fancy airport specific strollers and whatnot, but like... Unless you fly every month and have triplets, I just wouldn't want to spend the money or something I will use maybe twice.

I've used the caddy exclusively until mine outgrew the bucket seat, we didn't get a stroller until after that. Way too heavy with the car seat attached in my opinion

u/tropicalsnow · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

Even if you don't buy a big formal stroller, you might want a lightweight frame, something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Chicco-Keyfit-Caddy-Stroller-Frame/dp/B005JDOYF0, but for whatever carseat you buy.

If the baby falls asleep in the car, it's really really nice to be able to leave them in the carseat and just clip the car seat into a lightweight, super-easy to fold frame. I found it was particularly awesome for grocery shopping; i could do the shopping in ten min while the baby slept, and just put the groceries under the stroller until I got to the checkout line. I'm already watching for one to come up on craigslist!

edit to add: I think the frame-style stroller lasted us most of the first year, so it definitely would hold off the larger purchase and give you time to evaluate options. I did mostly baby-wearing too, but sometimes it was a relief to only carry my own body weight ;)

u/skippybit8 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I plan on getting the same exact car seat (better sooner than later at this point)! I however decided against the Travel System. I love the car seat, has great reviews, great safety ratings, and the price is under $200, which is great for my father who is buying it for me. I read mixed reviews on the stroller, and as a FTM I figure I may want a different stroller all together by the time he's big enough to ditch the car-seat as part of the stroller. For now, while he's an infant, I'm going with the car seat and this stroller frame: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005JDOYF0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=OUURZJ8F00GY&coliid=I28HX1QK2Y76YR. I believe I'll appreciate the simplicity, ease of use, and smaller size while I get the hang of this mom thing. You just have to think about what your priorities are! I'm convinced there is no "perfect" stroller/car seat.

We have that car seat and stroller (and car base) system and we NEVER use the stroller, like this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Chicco-Cortina-Keyfit-Travel-System/dp/B00AHQ0232/ref=sr_1_2?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1408888132&sr=1-2&keywords=chicco+stroller+travel+system

Instead, we use this:

http://www.amazon.com/Chicco-Keyfit-Caddy-Stroller-Frame/dp/B005JDOYF0

We got it for $79.99 on sale at Babys R us.

We use the car base, and it's awesome. Just drop kiddo in and you're done.

Then we use the Lite-away stroller.

HOWEVER, Chicco later came out with THIS Liteaway stroller, which combines BOTH of those into one - it's the frame and the stroller:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DJP14YE/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_2?pf_rd_p=1535523722&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B001ODAHF0&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=01FTMNMCQPBAPJYEVT22

The advantage is the light weight. We hated the full-sized stroller. It did not fit in our trunk easily, took up a ton of space, is giant and hard to use, heavy and hard to lift into the car or move up/down stairs, etc. The "frame" version is super light and totally easy to use, and the liteaway stroller is the same.

u/HelpMeOB · 1 pointr/Parenting

Get the keyfit stroller frame, not the travel system with the big stroller. SO much lighter, better basket space and accessibility, cheaper, and once they're out of the car seat you can just get a cheaper umbrella stroller cause they'll be old enough. We love our chicco and their customer service is awesome. Also if kid is asleep it's so much better to be able to move their seat instead of pulling them out and waking them up.
