UPPAbaby VISTA & MESA Review!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of UPPAbaby. The opinions and text are all mine.

It's impossible to not be happy while using this stroller!



When I was going through the daunting task of figuring out what baby products and gear I wanted to get in anticipation of Henrik's birth, I knew that a good car seat and stroller system would be very high on my list. These are items that you use a TON with a baby and there is a wide range of quality, features, etc. so I knew it would require a fair amount of research to figure out exactly what I wanted. I talked to many friends, test-drove a few strollers, read online reviews, etc. and finally settled on the UPPAbaby VISTA stroller and MESA car seat. There are a lot of features this travel system has that appealed to me. They included:

1. Stroller is easy to collapse and set up by myself
2. Car seat is easy to install safely and properly
3. Car seat fits into stroller
4. Stroller adapts to hold two kids (and can even accommodate a third with a little platform for them to stand on)

I was ecstatic when UPPAbaby said they wanted to work with me! I love their brand and products so I knew I couldn't pass up on this opportunity. Even before this partnership came along, my husband and I had already planned on purchasing this stroller and travel system because we felt it would be such a good fit for our family. And seriously, it hasn't disappointed!

Most importantly, Henrik is safe in this car seat and stroller and comfortable. He has never had issues with hating his car seat or stroller (which is such a huge blessing. Idk what we would have done if he had hated it).

If it's in your budget and you are looking for a travel system that has some of these features (ESPECIALLY if you plan on having kids close ish together and don't want a double-wide stroller), I would 100% recommend this system. It's been so great for us and I've been nothing but impressed with its quality and all the features it has to offer.
Probably my favorite thing about the car seat is how easy it is to install the base. We have a base for both of our cars but we often switch my base into my mom's car for errands and trips to Indy and it is so easy to do! And it tells you if it is installed correctly. I never had to worry about whether or not I had done it right because it was so easy to tell with their green/red click function. Installing a base and car seat seemed SO scary to me but it was very simple with the MESA.

As I mentioned earlier, the car seat seamlessly locks into the stroller so we never have to get Henrik out of the car seat and into a separate stroller seat if he has fallen asleep in the car (SO NICE). It takes hardly any time to get him safely locked into the stroller. And I'm all about as little "hassle" as possible when it comes to baby stuff. The VISTA does come with a bassinet attachment, which I wasn't sure at first if we would use or not. But guess what? We used it a ton! We kept the bassinet at my mom's house and Henrik would nap in it and then on trips to Indy, I would put him in the bassinet locked into the stroller so he could have a little bit more movement and freedom after being in the car seat for an hour plus on the drive down to Indy.

We have even taken both the car seat and stroller on various vacations this last year and while that certainly made us have a LOT of luggage for three people, it was well worth it. I didn't have to worry about trying to find another stroller or car seat to use and figure out while vacationing. We were able to get off the plane, pick up our stuff, set up the car seat in a matter of minutes in our rental car (you don't even have to use the base since there is a way to install it using a seatbelt), and we were good to go! And since we did so much walking while in NYC and California, it was really nice to have our stroller. It glides and maneuvers so easily and has plenty of storage for going out and about. The travel case UPPAbaby sells for the stroller is definitely worth getting, in my opinion. It kept our stroller totally safe and it acts as insurance for your stroller if it gets damaged in transit (luckily, this has never happened to us).

UPPAbaby's customer service is also fantastic. They really care about their customers and are always there to answer questions and help make sure your baby is safe. Seriously my only complaint is that they don't make a convertible car seat! I am so sad that Henrik has almost outgrown his MESA. Maybe by the time I have another baby they'll have a convertible one available :)

Of allllllllll our baby gear, our VISTA and MESA top the list of our favorite products. So functional, stylish, and high quality. It has really helped make our transition into parenthood that much easier. I will forever be an UPPAbaby fan! If you have ANY questions about my experience with this stroller and car seat, please let me know! I'd be more than happy to talk about it. And if you're local and want to see either in action, we can arrange that too!
