Travel strollers, infant strollers, umbrella strollers, double strollers — there are so many strollers in my garage alone, I can barely keep them straight. (And my husband just loves tripping over them all of the time.)

I admit that I am a stroller devotee — I like having my options open to make my life easier when I need a stroller to serve a specific purpose. Going for a jog? I need a heavy duty jogging stroller. Just making a quick trip to the mall? An umbrella is fine. Taking all the kids to the park? Out comes the big guns!

To make your life a little easier when it comes to choosing the perfect stroller, I turned to my favorite professional baby product connoisseur, Vanessa of Nessa Knows Best. She helped me round up the best strollers of the year to help you round up the best one for you — and your baby!

Favorite Travel Double Stroller: B-Agile Double

Vanessa dubs the Britax B-Agile Double Stroller as her “go-to” stroller for traveling. Large enough to accommodate even bigger kids (“it fits my tall four-year-old,” gushes Vanessa), this stroller also accepts infant car seats from the Britax brand. Some of this stroller's features include:

  • Folds quickly, flat, and stays closed
  • Very sturdy
  • Easy for kids to get in and out.
  • Canopies are separate and large

Perhaps Vanessa's favorite feature about this stroller is its ability to fit in a bag — which she deems a “must” for traveling with kids. Learn more about this stroller here.

Favorite Single Stroller: The Orbit G3

While this stroller is on the pricey side, it's a popular one for a reason, and it has received a gold star from regular moms and celebrities (Kourtney Kardashian's a fan!) alike. What's super cool about this stroller is that you can actually attach a toddler car seat to its base, not just an infant car seat. “Baby will be undisturbed in their comfortable organic fabric seat and completely covered from the outside world with the full-coverage canopy (available in FABULOUS colors!)” says Vanessa. This stroller also comes with multiple attachments to accommodate a growing child and even more kids. Learn more here.

Favorite Double: In-Line Kinderwagon HOP

If you're looking for a more lightweight, affordable double stroller, the In-Line Kinderwagon Hop is a great option. Surprisingly affordable at $299, the HOP is a great choice for twins or kids close in age, notes Vanessa. It has one canopy large enough to fit both kids and is only a few inches larger than a typical umbrella stroller, so it will fit nicely in most trunks. You can watch Vanessa's video review of this stroller, featuring her two young sons here.

Favorite Snap `n Go: Baby Trend

Snap `n Go strollers are excellent options for, well, snapping and going. When you're looking for a quick, lightweight, and affordable way to get out of the house, you need one of these strollers. Vanessa recommends the Baby Trend brand (which I personally also use and love!), which is widely available at most retailers and connects with many different brands of infant car seats.

Favorite Convertible Stroller: Valco Baby Zee Two with Joey Toddler Seat

Well, this is certainly an interesting stroller — it's a double stroller with a bonus third seat for when you make that crazy leap from two kids to three. (Guilty!) “I can not recommend this stroller enough,” says Vanessa. “The main attraction to this stroller is its basket. I have never seen a stroller basket fit so many bags, so neatly. It is wide and deep, allowing for the lunch box, diaper bag, and water bottle to stay upright and not disturb the seat above!” See her video review here.

Favorite Jogger: BOB Revolution Pro

“BOB makes a great jogger. Period,” comments Vanessa. “The front wheel can lock straight for gravel paths and long runs, while the swivel wheel allows it to be used for everyday strolling. Accessories are available to attach a car seat or a rider board on the back.” (Note: this jogger is meant to be used with babies over six months old.) Learn more here.

Favorite For Growing Families: The City Select Stroller by Baby Jogger

Now, here's a stroller that was made for me and my four kids! “Whether you're looking for a travel system, a pram, a double stroller, a triple, or just a single, the City Select could be the only stroller you'll ever need,” boasts the stroller's website. And Vanessa would have to agree. “Overall, this stroller is a great investment,” she notes. “The Baby Jogger City Select is a great ONE AND DONE stroller. Start out with a single seat, that can recline, reverse, and expand to fit your taller kid! Bassinet and car seat adapters make it perfect for birth on up. Then add a second seat to make 16 different seating configurations possible.” Learn more here and see a video review here.

Favorite Sit `n Stand: Joovy Caboose Ultralight

I knew I wanted a sit `n stand stroller with the birth of my fourth child, as it provides a great option for active older kids to ride seated or standing, and can still accommodate an infant car seat. Vanessa chose the Joovy Caboose Ultralight as her favorite brand of Sit `n Stand for its double seat capacity, affordability, and light weight. “This easy-to-use, feature-packed stroller is a great option for growing families!” says Vanessa. Watch her video review of the Joovy Caboose Ultralight here to see it in action!

Favorite for Twins: Cortina Together

Twin strollers are not always the same as your standard double stroller. The Chicco USA Cortina Together stroller can accommodate two infant car seats and yet is still lightweight enough to take out and about. “The babies can then graduate to their own seats in comfortable style,” explains Vanessa. ” A simple design, this long in-line stroller does the trick.” Check out her full review here.

Favorite All-Terrain: Stokke Trailz

Pssst! Here's a sneak peak into the future. The Stokke Trailz stroller isn't available until October 2014, but it may just be well worth the wait. Built for versatility and durability, this stroller can handle the outdoor terrain while still giving your baby a smooth ride — all while looking stylish. Learn more at Stokke.com.
