4. Bugaboo Cameleon

best strollers for city moms, chick picks, baby chick

The Cameleon is perfect for urban environments as it is easy to maneuver and has a super smooth ride. It remains a top pick for city babies because it’s stylish, takes you from newborn to big sibling on the wheeled board, and features such high-quality construction. Superior engineering and adjustable suspension ensure a smooth ride for your kiddo. The Cameleon is designed to adapt for all-terrain strolling–you can switch the handlebar’s direction to put the big back wheels up front or even click into a two-wheel position for snow or sand.

It folds and stores well, and its overall footprint is manageable for storing in an entryway or other space in a condo. While the Cameleon can be used with a car seat adapter (at an additional cost), it can be used in the bassinet form beginning in the newborn stage.

Because the fabrics are made to be removed, it makes it easy to keep your Cameleon looking and smelling nice–if there’s a mess, just take the canvas off and throw it in the wash. Plus, if you get bored with the color (which we know many moms do), just try another fabric set! Bugaboo’s Cameleon has set a high bar for the industry at large for both quality and style.

Plus, it has smart adjustability, offering three recline options from upright to 120 degrees, making it easy to keep your little one comfortable at all times. I also love that the removable canopy’s height can be adjusted for taller kids to sit without straining their necks.

There is also SPF 50+ protection against the sun. And it has an easy to click on foot brake, and the wheels on the G-Luxe are pretty sturdy as well. You will love the folding mechanism, which has an easy to reach lever that folds the stroller without much effort at all. The best part of all it stands upright when folded!
