I always tell new moms that their most important purchases is their car seat and stroller. You want a safe, trustworthy car seat- that is number one. Throughout their lives kiddos spend quite a bit of time in the car, and there’s absolutely nothing more important than their safety. A stroller is also a very crucial purchase because it will get used so many times, in so many places, and needs the right functions for your kids and your family. If you make these purchases correctly, you’ll avoid the hassle and cost of purchasing these items again down the road.
Which inevitably scares said new moms- because it makes the decision a bit overwhelming- what if you make the wrong one?
So trust this seasoned mom (I have a 7 and 8 year old, am pregnant, and also have nannied for countless families over the years) when I say that I am IN LOVE with my new Evenflo Pivot Travel System!!! I truly believe it is a great choice for families, especially those first timers.
First of all, the car seat is not only adorable but Evenflo has been sure to put safety first.

Meaning, they’ve done their homework. Which is of the greatest importance. Evenflo is a brand name that we all know and trust, and we can have confidence that they put the safety of our babes at the top of their list!
The car seat looks great, functions great, is comfy for baby, has a great base, comes in and out of the base easily, and has an adjustable 5 point harness. It “includes premium comfort and safety features like a roll bar, upfront harness adjustment, cozy infant head support, and a mom-friendly handle provide an easy transfer from home to car.” as well as extended warranty and a free live video installation support. (Cause we all definitely need that!)
The seat of the stroller easily pops out and the stroller becomes a car seat caddy stroller, meaning the stroller goes down to bare bones, it folds up really small and then the car seat clicks right into place where the seat was. Genius!
The stroller is phenomenal. I truly cannot say enough about it. First and foremost, this travel system is SUPER affordable, which this Mama appreciates a lot. Especially when my first two were little, we had to make every dollar count. I always wanted a stroller that had a lay-flat carriage, but that feature only seemed to come in the top of the line strollers that were way out of our price range. I just LOVE that Evenflo has brought this function into a stroller that truly feels top of the line, without the huge price tag.
The seat is so multi functional- I am obsessed. IT GOES FROM CARRIAGE MODE TO TODDLER SEAT BY A VERY SMALL PULL OF A LEVER. Come on, tell me thats not amazing? There is a buckle under the seat and helps it become a seat when it is in its upright position. I just love the ability to let a baby lay flat and get comfy. I also LOVE that you can easily flip the seat to face out or face in. I have never had a face-in stroller before, again because it used to come with such a huge price tag. The Evenflo Pivot does just this, and it is seriously as easy as a few clicks. There are benefits to both facing out and facing in, and with one stroller you can have them both!
Another thing I adore is the canopy- The double stroller that we purchased when my second was born (for no small fee, I might add) had many great functions, but the canopies were not what they needed to be. Being in Texas at the time, this was a huge problem that I was always having to improvise on. The Evenflo Pivot’s canopy is large and covers baby completely, so there are no worries at all. And now that we live in Minnesota, I just love the foot muff it comes with for walks in chillier weather.
Ok, another important quality of any stroller is the storage capacity. Kids come with crap, amiright? Puny little storage baskets are fine in a jogging or walking stroller, but if you plan to take your kids out into the world, you’re going to need space to put all.the.stuff. Not only is the storage basket large, but it is easy to use because the seat is high enough that there is enough room to actually put your hands in and out.
Last but certainly not least is the maneuverability of the stroller itself. If the stroller doesn’t move easily and well, it is guaranteed to frustrate you. Strollers need to get through tight spaces, turn around, and go in the direction you’ve actually steered it to. The Evenflo Pivot is TOP NOTCH in this area, I promise you. It moves like a dream. Two thumbs up.
The features are some of my favorites in a stroller, and all for a price that won’t break the bank. Be sure to check out their website for more info and get yourself one of these awesome travel systems today!
