Stroller: UPPAbaby Vista V2
Monthly Rate: New $85, Gently Used $65
Why we recommend it: The UPPAbaby Vista V2 combines thoughtful design with full functionality. Made for infants and toddlers, the Vista 2 includes a detachable bassinet that makes for super easy transitions with a napping baby, as well as a reversible toddler seat to give your little one the option of facing forward, backward, reclined or upright. Its ventilated, extendable sunshade offers UPF 50+ protection from harmful UV rays. It features a telescoping full-grain leather handlebar, making it comfortable for parents of varying heights. One of our favorite features is the one-step fold that positions it into a freestanding position. It also comes with an extra-large, easy-access basket for diaper bags, toys, and other items. The UPPAbaby Vista 2 has mastered the art of a smooth ride, with its shock-absorbing, all-wheel suspension, making it the perfect accompaniment for adventures with your little one.
What the experts say: Perfect for parents who want a high-end stroller that is also easy to use. It has numerous unique seating configurations, top-notch functionality, impeccable quality, and works well in both urban, suburban, and rural areas.
Why rent it: A stroller is a large investment, and you might find that you only use it for the first year before switching to cheaper, lightweight options as your baby starts to walk. Renting will allow you the flexibility without the large upfront commitment, especially for the UPPAbaby.
When you'll need it: You'll use the bassinet from newborn until around 5 months. The toddler seat is suitable for 3 months until 50 lbs. You'll likely use the stroller for the first year, and then switch to a more lightweight option as your baby gets older.
- Bassinet's aerated mattress and base: The perforated mattress pad and vented base allow for added breathability creating a truly comfortable and safe resting space for your baby.
