Britax b-ready with bassinet vs. Uppababy vista

I'm completely torn between the two. I really like the uppababy and the fact that I can buy a bassinet stand and use it in the home. Although, the britax has many of the same features for less.

Any thought or reviews?

The Britax B-Ready is on my list. I don't know a lot of details for the Uppa Baby but I've heard good things. Check out the Hauck Malibu, it comes with a bassinet and bassinet stand for inside the home.

If you can afford it, definitely go with the uppa baby vs b ready. Do check out the baby jogger city select tho. I think I choose that one over the uppa baby & I believe it's not as expensive

I have the UppaBaby Vista and like it a lot. But I was ghetto and did not buy a bassinet stand- I simply rolled the stroller with the bassinet up beside our bed! LOL! My son slept next to me for 2 months like that, allowing me to roll the stroller back and forth to rock him, put diapers and wipes in the basket underneath so I didn't have to stumble around the room at night, and wheel him out to the living room or kitchen if he was still sleeping. He can no longer fit in it. I believe the stand is pricey so unless it isn't an issue, don't spend your money on something you'll only use for 2-3 months.

I bought the Britax B-ready with the bassinet and I love it! A few concerns, the base is a little heavy and you do need both hands to collapse it. The bassinet is a little big and not meant to be used as a transport by itself (I always do though). I used to bring the whole stroller into the bedroom like the pp, now I just keep the bassinet on the floor so I can look down into it... So far so good!
As a stroller it is so easy to manouver even off road! If you can wait the free bassinet promo is supposed to start again in Sept.

My best friend had the Uppa Baby for her first baby and loooved it, loved the basinnet (organic) but she sold it when #2 was coming because she didn't like the Uppa in doubles mode ( the jump seat does not recline at all for her 2 yr old), and she liked the Britax much better, both seats recline. I know it is hard to think ahead, but if you want to have more babies soon it is worth considering.
