3. Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Plus

Editor's Notes

August 11, 2020:

Today we added a pair of bassinet strollers to the list. While it is a significant investment, the highly rated Uppababy Vista V2 just might be the only stroller you need to take your baby from birth through toddlerhood. The bassinet sports a canopy that unzips to provide adequate airflow, and the telescoping leather handlebar is ergonomically designed and comfortable to use by caregivers of varying heights. The versatile Bugaboo Cameleon 3 Plus lets you position the two larger wheels in either the back or the front, and the handlebar can be reversed so your little one can face either you or the world. Infants can transition easily to the upright position once they’re able to sit up independently.

We also brought two more all-inclusive travel systems on board. The Chicco Viaro boasts a lightweight aluminum frame and this, combined with a swiveling front wheel, help you to steer it with very little effort. It’s thoughtfully designed to fold up with just one hand into a slim, upright position. For a choice that’s equipped with all-terrain bicycle tires and a lockable front swivel wheel, look to the Baby Trend Expedition, which features impact-resistant foam sides and an adjustable sunshade with a peekaboo window. Be aware, though, that this one might not fit well into smaller trunks when it’s folded up.

To make room for these new additions, we removed the Graco Fastaction Fold Jogger and the Summer Infant 3D Flip, both of which require newborn inserts that are sold separately at this time. After some deliberation, we also chose to remove the British-designed MacLaren Quest, which incorporates a safety system designed to accommodate newborns, yet many parents also feel the need to purchase the compatible “carry cot” component for their young infants. Taking it out of our selection made room for a truly all-inclusive alternative. Lastly, the Besrey Single Carriage also makes its departure, as it’s not available for purchase at this time.

When choosing a newborn stroller, safety is the key concern, followed by factors like durability, style, and price. Featured here are various practical travel systems, which include an infant car seat, stroller, and base for your vehicle. In addition, we included several models that solely consist of a stroller with reclining capabilities suitable for a newborn’s delicate, developing head and neck. These selections can be modified accordingly as your baby starts to hold up his or her head and sit up straight.

Special Honors

Joolz Geo² Customizable This versatile stroller comes with a bassinet to accommodate newborns lying down, and it converts to an upright seat with a 5-point safety harness for older babies. Its modular design makes it possible to add a second seat or bassinet, for carrying two small children. It comes with a rain cover and a built-in UPF 50+ canopy with an adjustable hood and a peekaboo window. When you’re done using it, it can be folded up to a compact size with one quick motion.
