I like our travel system too. We use the carrier as a car seat only now. I suggest you go to a store with a big variety of strollers and push them around to see which feels best for you.

Wow, I knew there were a lot of options but holy cow!

Next question about this...

Does anyone have the graco metro-lite?
How about the peg perego travel system?
Any comparisons?

It's overwhelming, isn't it Beth! I didn't like my Travel system the first time around either...it is kind of heavy and bulky. I got a snap and go yesterday at my shower and I had something similar the first time, and I really recommend them for when you are out doing errands.They are easy and light weight.
I am still going to get a new travel system because we can't get the Zanzibar theme in just a car seat/carrier. But I plan on leaving the travel system stroller in DH's car so we can use it when we go out as a family to the mall or someplace like that.

As for comparisons, if you check the Babies R Us website, they have consumer comments about most products like that, so you can kind of get an idea of what other people had had issues with.

The snap and go thing is awesome. I used Janine's when my first was born, and it was so nice. We never actually bought a travel system with either of our girls because we thought they just seemed so bulky. Plus you can also just use an umbrella stroller when baby gets to be a few months old.

I had lots of different Peg Perego set ups with my 8 children and always loved them although some were kind of bulky and cumbersome.
