I used a travel system for DS#1 - but he outgrew the bucket by 6 months -- so this time I am NOT going for it - instead I picked the convertible car seat that I wanted and the Stroller that I wanted - and since no bucket, I was unfettered in which to pick
 


If you're planning on multiple children relatively close in age, you may want to opt for a double now - and add it to your registry (since you only get 1 shower) -- if you go for a travel system there are options that fit those as well.

I didn't want a travel system because I heard from a lot of my friends how much they didn't like them and ended up with a lighter stroller soon after.

I bought a Graco Snugride carsear because they were rated the best and then bought a different stroller. When my DD was first born I had the Maclaren Global (I don't think they make it anymore) and was able to use the carseat with that. I had some issues with it and I was able to return it when she was 6 months old.

When I returned that I got a Peg Perego Pliko P3 and absolutely loved it. It folds up like an umbrella stroller which was nice.

I am now torn between the peg perego pliko 3 and the graco metrolite. I compared them in person and the pliko is MUCH nicer (but of course it is much more expensive as well). I am not sure which way to go do to the relative lack of storage in the pliko. You also can't access the storage basket in the pliko when the baby is reclined as easily as you can in the gracos.

The storage was a little bit of a pain, but what I did was put things I wouldn't need to get into a lot in the bottom (coats, blanket) and I have one of these diaper bags that clips onto the stroller when you want it to.
 


The nice thing about the Pliko P3 was it was very sturdy so I never had to worry about it tipping if I had anything heavy on it. I would go shopping a lot with it and could hang tons of bags off the handles.
 


I really loved it. You might be able to find one on Craigslist that would be in good shape for cheaper? I still have both of my strollers in my garage that I really should look into selling on there.

I have a travel system and love it, but I got the lightweight Combi City Savvy stroller, which only weighs 11 pounds and folds down really small. The Companion car seat is well rated and works well with the stroller. I recommend any of the Combi travel systems if you want a travel system but want something a little more maneuverable than the Graco models.
