Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

So we found out yesterday, that my fabulous mother in law wants to buy our stroller for us! Thanks so much Jan!

However, now I don't know which one I want. I had my heart set on the Graco Quattro Tour Deluxe.
But over the last couple of days, I have been eyeing the Chicco Cortina KeyFit30
.
They each have their benefits/drawbacks (the Graco is much heavier, but the Chicco won't snap into a shopping cart) and they are very similar pricewise.
Any thoughts?

The reason I love the Graco one (and bought it) was because of two things:
1. it held a baby in the carseat up to 30 lbs - I see the Chicco one does too.
2. the stroller folds on all four wheels, which I havent seen any other stroller do. Most strollers fold sort of on themselves and lean on the ground. I didn't want that. Does the Chicco one fold so that it stays on all four wheels?

I was looking into the chicco...but if it doesnt snap into a shopping cart that is NO BEUNO! Seriously, that is very important! I had the graco system with Kaylee and loved it!

Based on looks alone, I think the Chicco one is adorable!

Alyssa - I just read your blog. They are discontinuing it?! What! Do you have more details for me? I looooove the deco pattern (although, my Hubs is not sold) and I don't want to miss out!

I have the graco - I LOVE it.. Except - it is very heavy.. especially if its in and out shopping and your hubs is not with you.. I would get the Graco.. I like the chicco and I now have a chicco - but for at first I think the Graco outdoes the chicco..
if your worried about heavyness at first I purchased the graco snap n'go thing and that was a GOD SEND.. all you have to do is snap the carseat in to that and it is WAY lighter to use than the travel- The other thing is, is you won't even use your Actual stroller until the baby can sit up on his/her own because you want them to face you etc..

A friend of mine with 2 kids said that Graco is the way to go with strollers. She had a metrolite one and it was lighter than the rest of them. And she had the snugfit or snugride carseat and she liked that because it was lighter to carry around.

Now my cousin just told me she has the Chicco KeyFit and LOVES it!
