My best friend has offer to buy me the stroller as well as the car seat for my baby, But I she isn't getting a travel system.
She's buying the 3 in 1 Eddie Bauer car seat. I'm just not sure which type of stroller I would need for my baby, which would provide enough support for him.
Do you guys have any sugestions?

The Graco Quattro Tour is nice. It has a head insert and it reclines in three positions, plus the bottom part where their legs hang out can be velcroed up to there is no risk of the baby slipping out.

the advice I was given for strollers is to make sure you can lift it and easily get it into your car. especially if you are having a C - lifting will not be easy for the first little while.
You'll love the Eddie Bauer 3 in 1. We received it as a hand-me-down & we love it. The great thing is, unlike the carseat in the travel systems, you can use it until your child is ready for a booster seat (age 5 - 8 depending on size/weight). We also had a stroller similar to the Graco Quattro Tour. Unfortunately we didn't use it much. Once my son could walk he refused to sit in the stroller. Ever.

I would recommend getting a snap and go for the baby at first since the infant carrier will fit in it and it is very light. Once the baby comes, you can look around for a stroller that will be good once the baby is too big for a carrier. I have 3 children and have had so many strollers that I wish I never had bought.
You should look for a stroller that you can lift and that will fit in your car. I know that a lot of strollers look nice and have lots of fancy gadgets, but they can be heavy, bulky, and difficult to get in a car. I personally have a small light weight baby trend that I keep in my car and a nicer all terrain stroller that I take on walks and if I am going to a park.
