If you are not planning to have more children, get an Emmaljunga. It has been a few years, but I think ours looked like We did not get the bassinet. Just the seat. It can be flipped around so that the baby can face the pusher or face forward. There is the option of both 10" and 12" wheels. On newer ones, the handle height is adjustable for shorter or a taller person. They get a cult following but not without reason. I was trying to find a pic to post here and found this comparison to the bugas

Emmaljungas are top of the line WAAYYY above all Bugaboos overhere. Emmaljunga´s new models sell by the thousands. That goes for both strollers, prams and combined strollers and prams. They still shit all over the other brands big time, what comfort and suspension/manouverbility is concerned. Lena _________________ Hi, Danish mum living in Denmark/Europe with hubby, dd.

There are many things that are so "right" with these strollers. Not unlike great bicycles, these reveal themselves over time. We had two trips when only had our youngest, to Seattle and to LA. In the midst of fancy parts of Seattle and Bev hills, we were asked many times about our stroller. Our only mistake was not getting a dual, as the stoller went into storage after the second child's arrival. It still looks new, barely broken in. It is not light. One can either fold it, or remove the wheels to get it into cars. As we had a station wagon, the wheel option was very convenient. All the baby stuff did not need to get pulled out. -

My friend works for Orbit Baby and the design and work they put into it is amazing. http://www.orbitbaby.com/

In my experience, there is no one-stroller-fits-all choice here. Without getting into the obvious clothing analogy, here are my picks: Birth-6 Months Bugaboo Chameleon The Chemeleons bassinet is roomy and will let your newborn camp out in utmost comfort. It is spacius enough for a bunch of blankets and pillows. I have not seen a more comfortable place for a newborn to sleep while out and about. 6-Months - 1+ Years Bugaboo Chameleon + Maxi Cosi Cabrio Car Seat Bugaboo offers adapters that work with Maxi Cosi Cabrio car seats. These will allow the seat to clip directly onto the Chameleon. 1 Year+ & Travel This is a tossup between the Mclaren XT series and the Bugaboo Bee if choosing today. As the decision is 12+ months from now, new technology may introduce more interesting choices. I am surprised nobody mentioned the Stokke Eplory? Not my choice but certainly beautiful.

Just read an article on a study that found that infants in front-facing strollers had higher heart rates and suffered long-term psychological trauma compared to infants in rear-facing strollers. Apparently the increased eye-contact b/wn parent and child in rear-facing strollers reduced their stress levels. So do your kid a favor and get a rear-facing stroller. And don't use teflon.

Because they do all the walking.

I agree with you on this one -- Mountain Buggy makes great strollers. They're so easy to handle and maneuver that they are great both on-road or off-road in the woods. We've got two of them - one single and one double. They're wery tough. It's been about a year since we last used ours (kids are finally too big for them) but they got loads of use. If you like going outdoors, walking along unpaved trails, bumping easily over curbs or bumpy paths, then something like the mountain buggy is almost a necessity.

it may not be the wussy factor entirely. people in nyc do a lot of walking. kids who in the 'burbs 'walk everywhere' (in reality thy're driven most places), get pooped after walking a mile or two. parents have to deal w/ tired cranky kids and still get their errands done. solution: stroller...

This is interesting. I am considering the Bugaboo Bee and getting the infant adapter and Graco carseat. Like I mentioned in my original post, we drive everywhere here in LA, so portability is key. Why not the Bee over the Chameleon for an infant?

Thanks everyone else for your posts. The Quinny is a good recommendation too, I will look into them further. For those with experience with the Zapp, does the lack of handle-height adjustment bother you? I'm on the tall side.

The Orbit and Stokke are certainly nice strollers (probably the "it" strollers of today), but they are pretty expensive.

didnt think it was a wuss thing - also, the stroller gives you more control over the kids, which you need in ny. I just find it interesting that you see some pretty big kids in new york in strollers. my girls, at 2, maybe go in the stroller once a week now. but, like you said, pretty much anything more than 3-400 meters we will drive. and anything less they walk.
