As a first time mom, my search for the perfect stroller was not the most conventional. I was fortunate enough to have friends willing to give me their hand-me downs, which included a travel system stroller. I was so relived to be able to scratch an item off my, what seemed to be never ending, to-do list before baby. It was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Our pre-baby plan included making sure everything was washed 3 weeks prior to E’s due date. As I was taking the car seat cover off to be washed, disaster struck. The car seat had JUST expired a couple of months prior. The baby could be here at any moment and we officially did not have a car seat or a stroller. *cue panic mode*
I started trying to do last minute research online and figure out which car seat and stroller combo would be the best buy, but there were just too many unanswered questions. How smooth of a ride is it? What’s the weight limit? Will shipping get it here in time? What if it gets here damaged? Hubs had to shut the laptop and load me in the car. This was an in-person job if we didn’t want me to have an anxiety attack! So, we headed down to Walmart so we could be sure to take home a car seat and stroller that day!
Our Walmart isn’t the biggest, so we weren’t overwhelmed with options, but there were still enough for us to be able to consider our needs, wants and budget while choosing a car seat and stroller. I knew right off the bat I wanted a travel system. It is so much more convenient to be able to move the baby from the vehicle to the stroller without having to wake him up or try to transfer him from one car seat to another. I am also a fairly active mama, so having a jogging stroller was a top priority, as well.
That’s when I saw the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Stroller. It was PERFECT.
The Expedition Jogger Stroller is budget friendly and has everything a new mama could ever want or need. Here are a few of our favorite features:
3 in 1 Travel System: it grows with baby from those sweet newborn days all the way throughout (and potentially past) the three-anger years with a 50 lb & 42″ limit.
Adjustable canopy that will block the wind and sun from almost any angle. It took me a while to realize that the stroller canopy was adjustable (#mombrain, lol) but it has made walks so much more enjoyable! The canopy can make its way all the way to the child’s tray. Plus, there is a vent for airflow and peeping mamas!
All terrain bicycle tires!!! These things are no joke. There was a time I would have to ride E over tree roots at the park just to get him to sleep and the tires took the beating like they were riding on pavement! The front wheel is also lockable which is perfect to keep the stroller from wobbling while jogging.
Super easy folding. This stroller folds and unfolds effortlessly. Plus, it is compact enough to fit in my small trunk (Pontiac G6).
There are just two things I would change if I had to chose. The 5 point harness on the infant seat is a little more difficult than the average harness. You have to hold the clips together in order to secure the buckle rather than two side entries. It took some extra getting used to, especially as a first time mom with a super squirmy baby! The stroller does have the two side entry though, so much easier!
It is not the lightest stroller. Including the infant seat, it is 41 lbs which is a little heavier than I would prefer. However, I am a petite woman and am able to easily maneuver and transport the stroller by myself.
Not too shabby! Considering this stroller is on the lower end of the price range, I am quite pleased to have only found two cons! I love how the Expedition grows with your child and am excited to see the escapades it goes on with us in the future. We have hiking and a 5K on our bucket list and I have no doubt it will hold up wonderfully!
Overall, I highly recommend the BabyTrend Expedition Jogging Stroller. What adventures will you go on with yours?!
