Great Stroller for a Small Car

Right before I got pregnant with Melanie, The Boy and I bought a new small car. It was a small commuter car that got great mileage – a Mazda 3 hatchback.

We were really happy with it and it was a great little car for new parents with a baby… except the truck.

Great Stroller for a Small Car

Turns out, strollers take up A LOT of precious trunk space in a small car. Space that's needed for groceries and other shopping.

Once we added another baby – trunk space was at a premium and we found ourselves struggling to load bags around our massive stroller.

So, when Ergo offered to send me a one of their new, compact strollers – I was onboard!

And, after using it for a few weeks, I can honestly say that the Ergo 180 Reversible Stroller is a great stroller for a small car.

Easy to Assemble

Your first sign that you're getting a slim and compact stroller is when the Ergo 180 Reversible Stroller first shows up on your doorstep – in a small, slender box.

It was easy for me to lift and bring into my house by myself. It was even easier to assemble. I pulled it out of the box and opened the main stroller.

Then I added the wheels, sun canopy, and cup holder. That was it! It took me less than 5 minutes (with the “help” of two small children).

One Hand Open

The best part was that I could open the stroller with the push of a button and close it with just one hand.

SUCH a helpful feature when juggling a baby and stuff.

180 Degree Handle

I also really like how the handle moves 180 degrees. This allows me to put Finn in his forward-facing seat while he's awake then, once he falls asleep, effortlessly move the handle (it swings up and over) so he is facing me while I push the stroller.

This is an awesome feature for when we travel and visit Disney since I like to see my babies while they're asleep but they like to be outward-facing while they're awake.

It's So Small!

The absolute BEST thing about the Ergo 180 Reversible Stroller is how small it folds down. I'm absolutely floored by it!

We went from a stroller that took up our entire truck (both width and height-wise) to a stroller that folds away so tiny that we can stand it up in the trunk!

Laid down, the whole folded up stroller takes up half our trunk (width-wise) and has a depth of less than a foot. It's incredible how much room we have now!

Some Accessories

I did snag a couple of accessories to use with my Ergo 180 Reversible Stroller.

I like it when my kids have a snack tray and cup holder of their own so I ordered one of those.

If you have a Graco or Chicco infant seat, this adapter allows you to click and carry the seat in your stroller (a GREAT feature if you travel and rent cars a lot, like we do).

I'm also considering picking up one of these weather shields. It's an extra layer of protection if we travel to areas with a rainy climate. An added bonus that your baby can see out at everything while also being protected from the elements.
