After months of anxiety and excitements, a new chapter in your parenthood journey is about to begin. It could be that the arrival of your newborn is coming soon. Or it could be that your newborn has just arrived. If you have not gotten yourself a baby stroller, you must be scrambling to find one.

Unlike the best cribs, baby stroller is something that most people initially thought could wait but it always turns out to be one of the most essential items to have. This is a common hindsight among many new parents and even among some non first-time parents.

By now, you’ve probably done few rounds of research and interviews with your fellow mommy friends in trying to find out which baby bassinet stroller is the best.

One of the models that is highly recommended by most moms is the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller.

Why? Read on to find out the reasons that make this baby bassinet stroller a hot pick among moms.

As with any human made product, nothing is perfect. No doubt there will always be pros and cons. Guy Kawasaki, a highly successful entrepreneurs, once said that in order to be successful, you can’t please everyone. Otherwise, you might just end up with a mediocre product. I know you would be eager to find out more about the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller. That’s why I’d start by discussing the pros followed by the cons later on.

What Makes UPPAbaby Vista a Winner

Weighing the Pros

One of the most loved feature of the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller is its flexibility. You can convert it for use with a bassinet, infant carrier or infant seat. This is one of the most important consideration when parents are making their choices for a baby stroller. You do not want to skimp to get yourself a good stroller.

Remember that you get what you pay for. A cheap stroller might save some money at the beginning. However, cheap strollers are usually, well, cheap skate. The materials tend to be of inferior quality.

More importantly, they are usually not well designed. If they are designed for newborn use, then they will be irrelevant when your baby grows. Similarly, if they are designed for toddler, they will not be suitable for newborn use.

With the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller, you just need to buy once. You can convert it to suit the evolving needs as your baby grows from an infant to a toddler. This means that you fork out more at the beginning, but it is a worthwhile investment that is going to last for a few years.

The UPPAbaby Vista Stroller is designed to take on heavy duty. It is one of the best bassinet that has been designed more for urban outdoor lifestyle. If you plan to regularly take your baby for a stroll in the park, the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller is sturdy enough. The rubber wheels are made of solid materials. You can take it for a stroll for hundreds of miles and it would still look as good as new.

The next thing that makes the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller so well loved by moms is the huge storage space found underneath. You might not believe it. But some moms confess that the huge storage is enough to hold a week worth of groceries and well, a diaper bag. I’ve been through it myself. In the past, I used to laugh when I saw couples ‘exploiting’ their baby stroller as grocery trolley. But it is inevitable, trust me. When you have a baby, you still need to do your groceries and there is no better way than a dual function stroller.

Weighing the Cons

Strange enough, but this is a fact. I found it amusing that the most common complains raised by parents about the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller is its bulkiness. That’s why it is important that you know what you’re buying.

Intended as heavy duty stroller, this baby stroller is bulky indeed. But this is inevitable if you are looking for a solid and tough bassinet stroller. The frame alone weighs 8.4kg and separately, the seat weighs at 3.1kg.

When you bought this stroller, think about your most typical usage scenario. As mom, do you need to regularly fold and lift it up all by yourself? If you do, are you ready to take on the weight?

Still on its bulky size, do not expect to bring your UPPAbaby Vista Stroller easily in and out of the malls, restaurants or cafes. If you are looking for a pram that you can lightly push in and out of the subways, restaurants and cafes, then this is not for you. Especially if you take the subway regularly.

The weight of this baby pram may be a bit too much to handle. Also, think about the storage space available at your home. If you are living in an apartment, think where you want to place the stroller. Even when it is folded, it may still be too big to fit the common closets found in typical size apartments.

The Bottomline

All in all, weigh the pros and cons of the UPPABABY Vista Stroller. There is no one size fit all stroller you can find out there. Consider your need. Consider your lifestyle.

Consider your budget. As a last note, I have to say this is a good looking baby stroller well worth its price. It is available in 10 attractive colors: Silver, Carlin, Cole, Denny, Drew, ELLA, Jake, Lindsey, Mica and TAYLOR.
