    There are various brands of stroller boards....I don't own one but they look neat. This is one:

    Amazon.com: E-Z Step Universal Stroller Wheel Board: Toys & Games

    As for the convenience of a travel system, infant car seats hook on to other brands of strollers, not just the one that comes in a travel system. For example, this is my brand of stroller with an infant seat on it:



    BOB stroller, Graco car seat. No big deal.

    The thing I LOVED best when DD was little and we were just going to the mall was the snap n' go stroller. It's not a REAL stroller but rather a frame for your car seat. Because I had a c-section I didn't want to be constantly lifting a heavy stroller. Also, when they're in the car seat you don't even use the other seat part of the stroller. We had ours given to us but they come up used a lot. They look like this before you put a car seat on:



    And with a car seat:




    Here they are at walmart:

The buckle kind like an Ergo or an Action Baby carrier just barely fit me, but they do make extensions to add on if needed.

    You can also try car seats at BRUS. So if you want to check and see if you can get the seat in and out, that is a good place to start. Then you would know if it would be worth getting the travel system.
    I have the MobyWrap on my registry. It really is meant for all sized women!

    This is the stroller / car seat combo we're registering for.. the car seat snaps into a base that's already seat-belted into the car so no worries about it not staying buckled it or coming loose with each buckle, unbuckle, buckle, unbuckle.

    And it just snaps into the stroller.

    The car seat base is definitely a MUST have for any infant seat. We still have DD's infant seat so we're going to use that. Unfortunately it's VERY big in our little car. Sigh.

    I can't believe all the new strollers they have come out with! I really like that they sell lightweight travel systems now because the old ones used to be so heavy. I still have no idea what I'm going to get. Really liking the new baby jogger city select that you can add an extra seat to.
