i have a graco view and hated it.. it is very cheap and hard to push on the sidewalk/pavement..
i got it on sale at best buy @ $259, which at time i thought was worth it since the infant car seat cost almost half the price..
i ended up buying an uppababy few weeks ago and love it...

The box just says graco view
Sorry I meant the uppababy one, which one did you buy? I just find it hard to spend almost $1000 extra on a uppababy one, is it worth it?

I bought the cruz ....yes it is expensive....but I think it is worth it....the ride is very smooth....I don't need to buy the infant car seat since my baby is now 8 months ....I had a hard time justifying myself why I need a 2nd stroller.....

Hi there,

I am expecting a baby next month and currently in the market for a stroller for about $600, I have already purchased a car seat

Hi !

Firstly, a BIG Congratulations !! We bought a Graco stroller ( one with 3 wheels ) from Babies R US store. We got it for 430 and came with a car seat too. So far we love it. Now that my son is 3, i mostly use it to stock groceries in the bottom section while my son is in the car seat identifying all the veggies and fruits.

you can also narrow down your options to which stroller supplies the adaptors to the car seat you bought.

As the baby cannot directly sit in the stroller seat check for a stroller where the car seat can fit or you can get an adapter to attach the car seat to the stroller. Better if you can return the car seat get a travel system instead. Graco has some decent travel sustems under $600.

when I had our 1st child, the stroller we we loved and used the most was some cheap $50 umbrella stroller from walmart
Why? it's light, compact, and just throw it around like nothing.

We also had $1000 Stokke, which just sat in the storage, because it was too big and too heavy.
That thing was massive even folded. it took most of our full size SUV trunk.
Out of all the crap we bought for our first born, I would say Stokke was the biggest waste of money.

My wife will be having 2nd one next summer, my plan is to buy cheap stroller/infant car seat combo, and when baby is big enough(around 2yr) for umbrella stroller, I'll get a decent umbrella stroller.

I just noticed link to your car seat you said you bought.

Do you also have infant car seat?
