Britax B-Ready stroller because I would load up the basket with everything we need for the day. You would be surprised by how much stuff a baby and a 5 year old need.
Every time I use my Britax stroller at Disneyland, I get stopped by strangers. They would either comment on how nice the stroller is or they would want to ask me about it (what features it has or how I like it). A few times, people asked me which Britax stroller I own because they are trying to decide which one to get. With so many strollers out there on the market, I could see how it could be overwhelming for a mom to pick one. I know that when I was a first time mom, I had a hard time shopping for a stroller. I did not even know what features I should be looking for, so I could definitely relate to those who can't decide on which stroller to purchase. Furthermore, a stroller is one of those baby gears that vary wildly in price and quality, how does one even begin to shop for one? From talking to other moms, I know that many of us start with a brand we trust and then we pick a stroller from that brand. Although that certainly narrows down the field, there is still a lot of research one needs to do when buying a stroller.
I LOVE my Britax B-Ready stroller. If I was a first time mom, I would pick up this stroller up as my starter stroller without any hesitation. Although it is more expensive than many of the strollers on the market, I feel that the quality is there for it to worth the retail price. B-Ready is really prefect for a suburban mom like me. However, if you want a Britax stroller but you would like something more compact, I would recommend picking up a B-Agile stroller.
Although on the Britax website, the two strollers look similar in size, that is not the case. B-Ready stroller is taller with higher handle bar in the back. For me, both strollers are comfortable to push, but my husband who is 6'5" finds the B-Ready to be a bit more comfortable for him. Both strollers are easy to push. Even my 5 year old daughter could push them without any difficulties. Both strollers also have the no-retread adjustable 5 point harness -- to adjust, you simply unzip the back of the stroller and move the clip up or down. This is a fantastic feature. I have only seen it on Britax so far and I am loving the fact that the company makes changes on their products to make things easier for moms. Both strollers also have the one step break system that's really easy and convenient to use. B-Agile stroller is more compact than B-Ready. It is easily for me to use when we visiting crowed places like a going to the Apple store on a Saturday morning. I also like that the shade goes down further on B-Agile so that it gives baby G the extra protection he needs from the hot summer sun.
We think that the B-Agile is a great stroller if you want one something smaller than the B-Ready. However, if you can afford both, we recommend buying both of them.
To buy the B-Agile stroller, please visit the Britax website. The stroller retails for $249.99. If you do decide to buy the B-Agile stroller, I highly recommend picking up a cup holder, the stroller does not come with it and you do have to buy it separately. I use my cup holder every time I use the stroller. If I don't have a drink to put in it, I would use it to hold my cell phone or a snack for DD instead. I am not sure why it does not come with a cup holder, I feel like all strollers need to have at least one. So, be sure to pick one up. It is very useful to hold your coffee, water bottle or sippy cup for your child.
