    Find me a stroller

    I know nothing about strollers and need some help.

    I don't use strollers often. DD is five months old, and we've used the stroller maybe a dozen times. But we're going on vacation in a few weeks (Chicago then Disney World, so the stroller will probably get some use.

    I have a Maclaren Techno XLR (or whatever the initials are), but I'm not sure if that's the best one for us. Here are my criteria:

    1. Lightweight and compact. (Very important!)
    2. Sturdy.
    3. Easy to maneuver.
    4. Big canopy.
    5. Enough recline for the baby to nap.
    6. Weight limit and seat height large enough to accommodate my 45-lb, 45-inch kid if he gets tired.

    Let me know what you think. Please don't use abbreviations. I'll have no idea what they mean!

    Re: Find me a stroller

    Is that lighter/more compact than the Maclaren?

    Now that I think about it, I guess I'm happy with everything about the Maclaren except the size. It's a little heavier and bulkier than I thought it would be.

    The stroller i linked is 21lbs, and holds 75lbs.
    The Baby Jogger City Mini Single (only has a 50lbs Weight limit) is 18lbs.

    How about a Mac Quest? I think they're lighter than the Techno. I have no complaints about the weight of mine.
