Your Opinion is Needed….

Now that the Peanut will be making his or her arrival shortly it’s time to decide on travel system. And I am not sure what to get! (Or more so my father who offered to buy the car seat and stroller for Scott and I.) I have decided on a Graco brand now I just don’t know what to get. I find the Qauttro strollers to big and bulky and they do not fold up very nicely but I would like a infant seat that fits up to 30 lbs which tend to go with the qauttros. I will be travelling a lot between here and Vancouver and mostly going on the ferry as foot passenger and a lightweight stroller would come in handy however they do not seem to have a lot of room in the baskets and the car seats that compliment them usually only go up to 22 lbs. So here is what I think I have narrowed my choices down to:

Option 1 Graco Mosaic Travel System

Pros:

-Lightweight

-Small

-Compact

Cons:

-Small Basket

– Car seat is only up to 22 lbs

-Not a lot of storage vs. Qauttro

Option 2: Mosaic Stroller paired with Graco Safe Seat

Pros:

– Car Seat up to 30 lbs

-More use out of car seat

(For Stroller see above Option 1)

Cons:

-Car seat is bulky

-Not quite sure if carseat matches stroller (What do you think??? This is a big selling point)

I have tried a Safe Seat with the Mosaic Stroller and it fits.

Option 3: Qauttro Stroller and Matching Safe Seat

Pros:

-Car seat accommodates baby up to 30 lbs

-Big Basket and lots of storage on stroller

Cons:

-Stroller is very bulky  takes up a lot of space

-stroller is heavy

Please leave me a comment with your thoughts and please vote on Options 1, 2 or 3! Thanks.
