Choosing a stroller requires careful thought and consideration. After all, you trust it with your baby’s safety. To make your decision less overwhelming, we’ve researched some of the most popular models on the market.

If you’re looking for a versatile option that’s easy to maneuver, a Graco stroller might be the answer.

If you need a lightweight model that lets you move your baby from stroller to car undisturbed, the Graco SnugRider Elite is a dependable choice — in fact, it tops our list. But if you prefer a traditional stroller to the SnugRider’s frame, check out the Graco Breaze Click Connect, which can be used as a stroller or car-seat carrier. And if you’re looking for one that won’t jostle your little one during your morning run, consider the Graco Relay Click Connect.
