After looking at many strollers from the BOB to the City Mini and many others out there, we finally decided on the Bugaboo Bee. It is great because it is really light weight, only 17 lbs.(I am not very strong), and folds up so easily. It also retracts back, so that even though it isn't a basinnet stroller, the baby can still basically lie down in it. I also love that the seat is reversible, so that the baby can either face you or look out. I like that it is sturdy, with four wheels instead of three. Another great aspect is that some strollers can't be used until the baby reaches a certain weight, but this one can be used right away with the carseat going right into it, with an adapter. Then once the baby is a month or so old, she can go directly in it! It can be used until the baby is around 37.5 lbs., which is a four year old, give or take.
It is also very attractive! The Bugaboo Bee comes in a black base, and has many options for the color of the sun canopy. We were all settled on having a black base and black canopy, when I saw a new color had come out in "soft pink!" Now, I realize that this is not the most practical color, especially since we plan on having another baby, who could very well be a boy, but the canopy can be switched out at that point, and is only $59.00. I think this is well worth it, it is just so precious in pale pink!
