Disclosure: I received the item pictured above at no cost to facilitate this review.
When I was waiting to welcome my first little one to the family, the number one need item on my needs list was a travel system. Not only did I want an infant carseat, but I wanted a product that allowed me to snap the carseat directly into the stroller, but also transitioned for me to use the stroller alone as my child grew. Back then, I turned to Graco to meet all of my carseat/stroller needs, at a budget I could afford, and it's a company I'd still choose again. Today I've got a closer look at one of their highest rated travel systems, the Graco Modes 3 Lite LX Click Connect Stroller Travel System!
- 3 Strollers in 1: Infant Car Seat Carrier, Infant Stroller, Toddler Stroller
- Includes the top-rated Graco SnugRide®35 Click Connect™ Infant Car Seat
- Reversible seat means baby can face you or the world
- An easy one-second, one-hand fold for parents on the go
- InRight™ LATCH system for an easy car seat base installation
I don't have any more "babies" of my own; mine have all outgrown the stroller phase (which is sometimes not always a good thing). Lucky for me, I have lots of nieces and nephews that are always ready and willing to jump in as my baby super models when I need them. My newest nephew, Grant, has been loving his new Modes Infant seat and so does his Mom and Dad! Featuring the SnugRide padding and cover, Grant stays comfortable and secure in his seat. The handle is easy to move and and down for placement in the car, on the stroller, and carrying from one place to the next. The seat also features a moveable umbrella covering to shield baby from the sun or sudden drizzle when outside.
Along with baby models I also got to feature my amazing sister-in-law, Kate, in this review. One of the things she loves most about this system is that along with it's lightweight components, it's easy to put Grant (in his carseat) right into the car and the fold up and carry the stroller with one hand. Watching Kate put this system easily into her trunk, I was taken aback myself. I don't think I've seen a system this easy to break down and stow.
The Graco Modes™ 3 Lite LX Travel System gives you 9 ways to ride on a sporty 3-wheel frame, with the signature Graco FastAction™ Fold and the top-rated SnugRide® 35 infant car seat.

The lightweight, sturdy frame makes it convenient to take on the go and makes both quick and long trips with baby easier!
