This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of UPPAbaby. The opinions and text are all mine.
Baby number 4 will be here before we know it, and one thing I knew I needed before she arrived was a new stroller. We have owned every stroller under the sun (probably slight exaggeration) in the past 7 years, but haven’t had a need for a double stroller for years. I had the opportunity recently to work with UPPAbaby and give you a review of the UPPAbaby VISTA stroller, and let me tell you all, it doesn’t disappoint. I will walk you through why we love it in this blog post, especially for a larger family like my own!

Review of the UPPAbaby VISTA stroller
I am sure you gathered by the opening paragraph that my overall review, is that this stroller is TOP KNOTCH. But I also totally understand when you’re stroller shopping you are weighing so many things, so I want to walk you through some of the requirements we have when stroller shopping and WHY this stroller won us over as our favorite.
Be sure to check out the UPPAbaby website to see more information on the stroller and get exact specs. I find that typically those exact pieces of info are more easily found on the company site!
Why it’s the best:
When you’re stroller shopping I have a few thoughts on things that should be somewhat non negotiable, and I will talk to you about those things, but also want to share that I have this blog post talking about the UPPAbaby CRUZ that we also loved. I personally think if you are expecting your first baby and think there is any chance you will add another baby in the next 2/3 years you would be best to get a stroller that easily converts to a double stroller, but functions normally as a single stroller first. That was our big thing when it came to the UPPAbaby VISTA.
Something super important that the VISTA does that many strollers don’t, is that when you add a second seat (or if) the lower seat is in the front. Many strollers that convert to a double stroller add the second seat lower in the back, and it’s just not as functional. Most children don’t want to stare at their siblings back, and will get fussy in that lower seat. So the position of the 2 seats is the number one thing we love about the UPPAbaby VISTA.
Something else that I think is super important is finding a stroller that allows at least your one child to face you. The seats on the UPPAbaby VISTA are easily turned inwards towards the parent or forward, which allows for them to work well in so many situations.
Basket Size: Incase you haven’t had your first yet – I am going to let you on to a secret. You will now never leave the house without everything under the sun. Basket size makes or breaks a stroller. I don’t like to have to wear my diaper bag all the time, and the UPPAbaby VISTA basket is not only HUGE, but it has cup holders and slots in it to make it functional in so many ways.
The last BIG drawing card for me with the UPPAbaby VISTA (and the CRUZ – we had it on that one too and fell in love!) is the PiggyBack Ride – along board. If you have more than one child this board is A GAME CHANGER. I share about it all the time, and I think I have converted more people to this feature on the stroller than anything else on my blog. The rider board is not necessarily only found on UPPAbaby strollers, but UPPAbaby has perfected it. The ease of folding it and the size/where the child stands allows you to still push the stroller easily, and when its not in use its not in the way, but also doesn’t ruin access to the basket. There are several other amazing accessories you can check out on their page here too.
Making Life Easier
Overall when you are buying a stroller, remember that there are few things that you will use most days of your Childs life. A stroller is one of them, and will either make outings easier, or a hassle. UPPAbaby has worked all the kinks out and made a flawless design that is both user friendly for your kids and for you as a parent. I always say if nothing else, go push it around at a store and you will be sold. It is so easy to push and maneuver, and even with the weight of all three of mine on board at times it still remains an easy push! If you have more questions on the UPPAbaby VISTA stroller be sure to leave me a comment and I will do my best to answer, or direct you to someone who is more equip, or as always, DM me via Instagram!
