Britax B-Nimble Stroller Joins Our Family
Britax B-Nimble Review
So, at first I thought there was no way I needed another stroller. I had a full size stroller and a hand-me-down sit and stand (that was really hard to maneuver). When I started working with Britax as a Latina Advisory Member, I was offered to review the Britax B-Agile Double and fell in love. I had no idea what I was missing with such a quality product! Although I love my heavy duty double stroller, there was one occasion that I felt like I didn’t have the best option – quick uses.
Alina is a strong 3 three year old. She doesn’t need to sit in a stroller for quick walks, strolls at the store or to pick up a couple groceries. Also, my original full sized stroller just took up wayyy too much room in my trunk. It was time for a different approach.
When I was offered to review the Britax B-Nimble stroller, I hoped this is what I’ve been missing. Believe it or not, we don’t own an “umbrella” stroller – not even one of those $20 ones – so I was anxious to give Britax’s version of “lightweight convenient stroller for parents on the go” a try for myself.
Being compatible with Britax infant car seats with their CLICK & GO integrated adapters, I can totally see this being the only stroller a city mom might need. It’s also Travel System compatible with other major infant car seat brands when used with included infant car seat adapter strap, such as Chicco Key Fit, Chicco Key Fit 30, Graco Snugride 32, Graco Snugride 35, and Peg Perego Primo Viaggio. Without an infant car seat, babies from 6 months old to 55 lbs are able to use the B-Nimble.
What I Loved
What I loved most was that the Britax B-Nimble took so much less space in the trunk of my car than our double stroller and full sized stroller. After a few outings, this can be fairly important.
The B-Nimble will also be our go-to stroller for all our traveling needs. Since we take frequent road trips to California, having the extra space freed up in our trunk is a BIG deal.
Secondly, I loved that Britax’s version of the umbrella stroller is so much more comfortable for baby than it’s $20 version. You get a full sized canopy, full recline and five-point harness for added safety. Sebastian’s favorite feature is the alternating food rests. Since he is still technically an infant, albeit a 24 pounder, having his chunky legs elevated increasing his comfort level (and the length of time he is willing to stay put!).
As with all Britax products, the quality is unbeatable. The fabric is strong and fashionable, the wheel suspension is smooth and the handles are high. No more leaning over to push a stroller!
What Was Missing
Since this is our first lightweight stroller, I didn’t expect to miss the big basket as much as I did. I don’t fault Britax, as the whole purpose of this stroller is to be smaller and lighter – but the lack of the over-sized storage basket that you find in the B-Agile was definitely noticed. There is a moderate sized basket available, its just not huge. Even still, for quick trips and travel, I know the B-Nimble will serve us well. And knowing my baby is comfy and safe out weighs the missing storage.
As the weather starts to warm up, our little family is out enjoying it. Having the B-Nimble helps to keep us mobile and moving quick. I am looking forward to strolling this beauty down a beach board walk this summer.
