Despite what it may feel like at times, no one welcomes a baby with it all figured out. And while you’d hope the first child teaches all you need to know, the second arrives with their own bag of surprises.

When I was preparing for my first, the registry process was exciting. Oh, and simple. For a start, I didn’t have any children running around, so there was plenty of time to search through best-of lists and helpful Reddit threads. It was also fun to imagine my new life full of new products that would ultimately help shape my budding motherhood. I was able to decide what was important to me —and functional style was at the top of my list.

Currently, I’m preparing for my second child. So you can find me knee deep in basement bins, scavenging for any usable baby good. “Where’s the expiration date on this car seat? 0-3 baby buntings work for a summer baby, right? Where in the world is that wipe warmer? Diapers…need so. many. diapers. ”

Through all the trials and tribulations of my first, I did come to a certain realization when it comes to parenting. One I would etch in stone if anyone still did that.

I will never compromise on my children’s stroller.

What Makes A Great Stroller?

The right stroller does more than expected. First, it should give you the freedom to explore with your baby and keep up with the rest of your family (that seems to have lost all sense of “wait up!”). Even if you’re not a city commuter or trail seeker, every parent needs something that runs smoothly on sidewalks and offroad, uphill and downhill, and everywhere in between. A smooth ride isn’t just important for ease of use, but also for your baby’s comfort. Second, adaptability should be non-negotiable. Newborns have different needs than older babies, who have different preferences than toddlers. And when planning to have more than one, you’ll want to consider something that can convert to hold all your kiddos.

And don’t skimp on the style. A stroller that is both functional and fashionable can boost your confidence as you navigate being a first time parent, or adjust to wrangling a whole herd of little ones. In my own search for a stroller, I wanted something that looked nice, put together, modern, and ready for anything. Just like me, right?

Check Every Box With The UPPAbaby Vista V2

We created the Vista V2 Stroller so parents could make one stroller decision and not look back. The Vista V2 is the most modular and bundled product we offer, providing a continuous, uninterrupted stroll through parenthood. Beginning as a single stroller, the Vista’s design and luxury finishes will outlast any adventures. The included Bassinet, suitable from birth up to 20lbs, provides your baby with a safe space to sleep both while attached to the stroller, or on the added Bassinet Stand accessory. If you forget the Bassinet at home, no need to worry, the Vista pairs perfectly with our UPPAbaby Mesa® and Aria™ Infant Car Seats, which connect directly to the stroller adapter-free to create a complete travel system.

The one-handed recline allows you to adjust the seat anywhere from completely upright to fully reclined, so your curious, on-the-go toddler can go from sightseeing to napping with ease. Expanding your family? With the right accessories, the Vista converts to accommodate up to three children. Purchase a RumbleSeat® V2+ for your toddler or a PiggyBack® ride along board for older littles looking to hitch a ride.

When it comes to performance, the Vista V2 has a number of smart tech features. The extendable UPF 50+ Canopy provides sun protection, while the mesh panels allow for better airflow and quick glimpses inside. The All-Wheel Suspension and independent shocks ensure a comfortable ride for all your little passengers, and the easy, intuitive one-step fold makes for easy storage on the go. And no matter how much use your Vista gets, its high-quality durable materials will ensure you won’t be scrambling for a replacement in the future.
