Britax B-READY Stroller

B-Ready StrollerAs the mom of three girls, our garage is now overflowing with strollers of all types. One glance and you can identify a travel system stroller, umbrella stroller, double stroller, jogging stoller,…and the list goes on. Having too many strollers is like having too many handbags. The stuff I need is never inside and I always wish I had a different one. Not to mention the extra costs. Luckily, my timing was right with my third child because it coincided with the launch of Britax’s new B-READY stroller. Finally I only needed one stroller to meet all of my needs.

The B-READY has 14 different configurations that include an infant seat, bassinet, a standard seat and a second seat. You can use or switch out any combination of two. Now it’s possible to buy one stroller for your baby and keep it until you no longer need a stroller. It’s brilliant!

For the first few months I used just the bassinet. This was perfect because my daughter slept better lying down in the beginning. I had always wanted a pram type stroller for my baby but the extra cost was prohibitive. With the B-READY it became more doable. It felt luxurious pushing my newborn around in a roomy, comfy bassinet.

I was also able to switch out the bassinet with the Britax Chaperone infant car seat when ever I needed to. It clicked in and out easily and made transfers to the car a breeze. The B-READY comes with the Click & Go integrated car seat adapter when you buy it. If you want to use another brand car seat, you can purchase a separate adapter. Although the Chaperone is one of the best infant car seats I’ve used.

After a little while, I went with the standard seat and we added the second seat so I could take long walks with the baby and my 20 month old. The second seat is a decent sized seat with lots of padding, and adjustable 5-point harness and plenty of leg room for my older daughter (who is big for her age). But best of all she liked sitting in the lower seat, calling it her big girl spot. The top seat has 3 recline positions and the same 5-point harness. The large canopy with ventilation was great for the summer months. I really appreciated the peek through window so I could see if the baby was truly sleeping.

But the most impressive thing about the B-READY is the fact that the second seat does not need to be removed to fold the stroller. This is huge for parents on the go. I’ve had double strollers that said they were foldable even though it took two grown people to get the job done. The B-READY truly does fold easily and can be done by one frazzled mom. Trust me, I’ve done it.

The One-Step Brake System is another great feature. When you step on the brake it turns red so you know it is engaged. You step again and it turns green so you know you’re okay to go. It worked so well I was able to lock the tires at the top of a steep hill and they did not move an inch. I also love the storage basket, which is enormous compared to my other strollers. It has a zippered opening on the sides and front so you can access it no matter how your stroller is configured.

Whatever mode the B-READY is in, it’s a snap to maneuver. You can push it with one hand and fit through every doorway. The tires aren’t filled with air so you don’t have to worry about getting a flat. (This was a thrill for me since I’ve experienced many a flat stroller tire.) I just recommended this stroller to my sister-in-law who is pregnant with twins. The B-READY can have two car seats at the same time. Talk about convenience!

The Britax B-READY Stroller is $499.99 and comes in four solid colors: black, silver, red and green. Besides being super practical and well made, the B-READY looks sleek and modern. For any family, the B-READY is the only stroller you will ever need.
