A dad walks into the hospital and says to the doctor…

“My wife wants another baby, but do you think we should have kids after 40?”

“No, 40 children is enough!” replied the doctor.

You can have lots of jokes and laughs when you’re talking about parenting topics. In fact, in times of fatigue and stress, especially with babies and toddlers, a little bit of humour can go a long way!

I remember one of the more “stressful” experiences before my daughter was born was picking a stroller.

My wife and I just couldn’t agree, despite seeing several options…

..but we finally settled on one in the end!

So if you’re expecting your first child, or you’d like to replace your current stroller with a better option, I know how hard it can be to choose the right one.

In this article, let’s take a look at what you should bear in mind when choosing a stroller, as well as 2 popular options which are worth considering:

  • Graco Breaze
  • Chicco Liteway

What should you consider when buying a stroller?

You need to ensure it’s not too heavy, as it will be hard work moving around in tight spaces such as in shops or cafes. You’ll also get more tired if you go on long walks to the park. However, if the stroller is too light, it might not be as sturdy so you need to strike the right balance between something which is well-built and not too heavy to push around.

The stroller needs to be practical, with good underneath storage. It should fold down easily and be small enough to comfortably fit in the boot of your car, and not take up too much space near your front door.

Furthermore it should be easy to put your baby in and out of the stroller, easy to clean to remove any unwanted spills or food stains, and most important of all, it should be safe and secure for your baby to sit in.

Now that we’ve looked at a brief glance of what you should think about when buying a stroller, let’s take a look at the Graco Breaze and Chicco Liteway in more detail.

Detailed Comparison

Weight

WINNER – Chicco Liteway

Although there’s not much in it, the Chicco Liteway is fractionally lighter, so you should find it slightly easier to move around.

Size

WINNER – Graco Breaze

The Graco Breaze wins on two counts here. Although both strollers are similar in height and width, the Liteway is a bit deeper so it will take up a bit more space when you’re out and about. Furthermore, the folded dimensions of the Graco Breaze are fractionally smaller than the Liteway.

Easy to fold

DRAW

Both have one hand fold action, which is handy when you’re in a rush or you don’t have both hands free when you get home, or need to fold up the stroller to put it in the car.

Child Weight

WINNER – Graco Breaze

This is a big win for the Breaze. The Liteway can only be used for babies from around 6 months of age, and then up to 40lbs in weight. The Breaze, on the other hand, can be used from birth, up to a weight of 50lbs, which means it can be used earlier and for longer.

Design

WINNER – Graco Breaze

The Breaze is more functional and versatile than the Liteway. It can be used with a Graco car seat (which you should buy if you decide to go for the Breaze). Having the option of inserting a car seat into a stroller is really handy when you’re driving into town with your infant. Both strollers have good storage though, easy to use and manoeuvre, and both have multi-recline positions for your baby’s comfort.

Price

WINNER – Chicco Liteway

The Chicco Liteway is slightly cheaper than the Breaze.

Conclusion

OVERALL WINNER – Graco Breaze (just)

If I had to choose, I would pick the Breaze. For a few more $, you get the added functionality of using a car seat, and you can use it straight away..

..and not leave it in a box in your garage until your baby has reached 6 months.

However, if you’re really on a tight budget, or if you don’t have a car, then the Liteway will do the job just fine.
