You might want to look into the baby trend Snap N Go stroller. It uses the infant car seat with the handle that you see most people carrying the baby around in, so it is very compact, but there is no seat so you will be switching to an umbrella stroller as soon as the baby wants out of the car seat (around 8 or 9 months). I'm getting this one, but just because it is lighter and easier for me to use when I am by myself.
I have a Chicco travel system and its a smaller set. You can get just the car seats and they fit in one on them snap n go things. But my car seat is smaller and the 2nd safest in the us so that's why I got it!
You have to check out the new Chicco Echo... It's a deluxe umbrella ar//stroller it reclines in 5 positions so its perfect for s small baby & and up til they're like 4 yrs. Old. So you'll only have to buy one stroller. I'm pregnant with #4 so I know how big & frustrating the travel systems are. I bought my chicco echo from Target $99.. they come in 6 diff bright colors! I just used it for the first time at the zoo with my 3 yr old & LOVE it, it light & steers perfect. I'll be using it for my newborn too! Check it out online now, I promise you will be happy.
