Thank you to Evenflo for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
One of the first things I registered for with my first baby was a travel system. Everything we needed in one convenient little package – infant seat and stroller. I picked one that was popular at the time and didn’t really go too far into my research. Now it’s four years later and that has changed. I recently got the opportunity to review the new Evenflo Pivot travel system… and my word, I’m so glad things have gotten better in the past four years!
There are so many things I love about this travel system, but I’m going to jump to my favorite one – the giant basket. The stroller basket in many other strollers is just never big enough and I was always trying to clip things to the handle to make it work. Not this one. This basket is enormous and I love everything about it. I tend to carry far too much with me and that’s no problem with the Pivot stroller.
The Pivot comes with both the infant seat and base as well as a regular seat that converts to a bassinet. Both the infant seat and regular seat can click into the frame facing in or facing out, which I love. Right now with Ella so little, I want to be able to see her, but I know as she gets bigger she’ll want to face out. I love the versatility of it! We recently took it the Pivot stroller on a trip to D.C. and it was perfect. It was easy to push for both me and Chris, and Ella had plenty of room. I also loved that I was able to change her diaper right in the stroller by making it a bassinet – how many times have we had to change our kids on the floor in public places? I didn’t have to do that with this stroller around and it was so convenient! The canopy is also huge and kept the sun off of her easily.
We’ve been using the SafeMax infant car seat as well, and I’m really happy with it – Ella is comfortable in it, and I love the safety feature of the anti-rebound bar – something you don’t find in a ton of seats!
We are absolutely loving the Pivot travel system and I’m so glad we got a chance to try it out. Even though Ella will be outgrowing the infant seat soon, I know we’ll be using the stroller for years to come – it goes up to 50 pounds which means even Abbie can still ride in it! Plus, that basket. I can’t stop talking about it!
What do you look for in a travel system? Are you obsessed with having a big basket like I am?
