The first few months, I was clipping the car seat into a very heavy stroller that I will probably review later. Even as the baby got bigger, I didn't want to eliminate the extra weight of the car seat because otherwise, he'd have to face forward, and I was (and still kind of) not ready for that.
Enter the Jane Rider.
Jane Brand Ambassador, so I was sent one of these guys to try out. I really love this stroller because it's light and can face in or out (with adjustable inclines for each mode). It is made out of quality materials without extra flame retardant chemicals, and I can imagine it lasting through multiple babies if I ever get over the trauma and go that route. Plus, it folds easily and is shock-absorbing, which is very important for stroller naps!

The Jane Rider retails for $750 (the older models are a couple of hundred bucks cheaper if you can find them), so yes, it's on the higher end of the spectrum. Thinking back, our lug of a stroller before was over half the price, and I can already tell it isn't built to last like this one is. As a European company, they are building their U.S. presence, and their products are starting to appear in places like Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us.
