Top 5 Strollers for Parents to Consider in 2016

We take the time to evaluate hundreds of stroller models available, get hands on with so many of them, and we put together a list of what we believe are among the top baby strollers that would be a good fit for most moms and dads. These offer the best balance of value, design, comfort, quality, style, comfort, safety, and performance. 


Before you buy a stroller, learn if the stroller is suitable for young infants. Many strollers take an infant car seat, most require a car seat adaptor which may or may not be included. Some can be used with a newborn bassinet which may be included or an optional purchase. Some strollers are suitable for infants because the seats recline completely flat.

If you live in a place that requires you to carry the stroller up stairs, check out the stroller's weight and look for one that offers a carry handle. If you frequently use a car for errands, look up the folded dimensions of the stroller to ensure that the stroller will fit in your trunk - and look to see how much room is left for groceries and diaper bags!
