For parents, the carseat and stroller are two of the more important purchases we make. In our opinion, the stroller must be easy to use, durable and lightweight. The carseat, of course, must be safe and simple enough to attach. For more and more parents, the flexibility of a travel system, whereby the baby remains in a single capsule which can be attached to the car/stroller, has become an attractive option.
Many travel systems are of great quality, are easy to use and are relatively cost effective. You can read my article about what to look for when buying a travel system here. With bub getting from Point A to Point B in one single capsule, the trip to the grocery store becomes a breeze. A list of our favorite travel systems are below!
