Any mom's using the Universal Car Seat Stroller?

Just wondering how they are...I originally registered for a Graco Travel System but after doing some research found out they are way too heavy and I don't think I'd get much use out of it anyway...and besides, since registering for it...it hasn't been in stockChat Icon !

So, now I'm registered for the Universal Car Seat Carrier by Baby Trend and a Graco Snug Ride car seat. I also registered for a Combi Savvy Stroller for when the baby is a bit older.

I don't have one, but I really wish I did get that instead of the travel system. I will definitely get one for the next baby.

I have the Snap N Go that BRU sells and love it. Just leave it in the trunk and take it out at the store and pop her Snugride into it. I've been using it for about 4 months. We used it on our trip to FL last week and it was great for the airport. We got her a seat and used the car seat and base on the plane. We were able to leave her in her car seat and check the stroller at the gate. They had it open and ready for us when we deplaned. Also, since it folds so flat it was perfect for the rental car, since we didn't know how big the trunk would be and how much room we'd have after we put the luggage in.

Sarah is just over 26 inches long now, so we just moved her to the big car seat this weekend, so I can't use it anymore and I'm so sad! She can't sit up very welll on her own yet (she's about 5.5 months) so I guess I'll have to bring the big stroller to the store for now.

They are so bulky and take up the entire trunk (at least mine takes up the back of our Honda CRV). By the time they grow out of the carrier they can sit up in a lightweight stroller.

I have the baby trend one from babies r us and I love it. I have the Peg Perego stroller which is very light but I have trouble attaching the car seat to seat so I use the other stroller and have no trouble. I would definately recommend it if the stroller you registered for is heavy.

I have the Universal and I love it. It is so easy to use and rides so smoothly. Very lightweight compared to the travel systems too.
