Hey guys! 

As you know our family has recently grown from three to four with our newest addition, sweet little Asher. Ever since bringing him home, we have been adjusting to our new life as a family of four. It has definitely had it’s ups and downs. But I know it s just a matter of time until we adjust to our new normal. One of the biggest challenges we have had is being able to get out of the house. Just the thought and logistics of leaving the house, and getting around with two children have completely overwhelmed me. How will I ever go shopping again!?

That’s where our new Graco Modes2Grow Travel System has come into play. This travel system from Graco has been a life saver for us. I love the versatility of it, it’s more compact than other travel systems (that can be a double stroller), and it is super smooth/easy to use! 

The Graco Modes2Grow Travel System grows with your little ones. It comes with the infant carrier, infant carrier base, bassinet seat, toddler seat, and stroller base. It also has a parent tray, parent cup holder, removable child tray, extra-large storage basket (my favorite thing), and one-hand standing fold to make it super easy to put away! This is definitely the only stroller we will ever need to buy. 

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how Easton would like sitting lower than his brother in the stroller. I thought he might hate it. But, I was totally wrong! He loved it. He was super comfortable, and seems to enjoy it the entire time he is in it. He often falls asleep in it, that’s how comfortable he is. I also love how I can see both of them easily this way too. They are both within arms (and kissing) reach. 🙂 

The stroller is really easy to convert to other options as well. When I just need to use it for the infant seat instead of the double. I simply take the toddler seat out that Easton would be sitting in then click the carseat in from the base in the car, and DONE. It’s that easy. I have had to use this option a few times in the past week because we have gone places where Easton didn’t need to be in a seat (like the park, or a friends house for a BBQ). 

Bonus for this way to use the Travel System is that Easton loves to be a “big helper” and push the stroller too. It’s the cutest! 

Another of my favorite ways to use the stroller is just with Easton using the toddler seat. We have been using this mode a lot to spend some quality time together taking walks around the neighborhood while Drew hangs with Asher. Easton’s favorite part is the toddler tray (this piece comes on and off easily). He also really enjoys helping me press the buttons to switch it from the infant seat mode to the toddler seat mode. He’s growing up so quickly! I love that he loves to be so helpful.

I also love that this stroller system grows with us as a family. As Asher grows out of the infant seat, I can easily switch it out for the other seat that comes with the stroller. Here are just a few of the variations of ways we will be able to use the seats in the stroller in the future: 

The versatility and ease of use of this system is just perfect for our growing family. I truly enjoy using it, and would totally recommend it to you! This stroller system is part of a larger family of Modes strollers from Graco. So if this stroller doesn’t meet all your family’s needs, there is definitely one that will! You can find this Travel System and all the others in the Modes family at

If you have any questions about this Travel System that I didn’t answer above, please leave them in the comments below. I would love to answer any questions you have. 🙂

Hey! I’m Krista!

Hey! I’m Krista!

I live in Chesterfield, VA with my husband Drew, and our two boys, Easton and Asher. Easton was born with Down syndrome. Easton's prenatal diagnosis was one that I struggled with greatly at first. Once he was born, I realized that everything doctors told me about all the things he wouldn't be able to do weren't true, and I became empowered. I felt the call and need to share our story with others in hopes that other women walking in our shoes could see that life with Down syndrome is not scary. It is filled with wonder, excitement, and joy. Follow along as I share all about motherhood, Down syndrome, our home, and lifestyle.

xoxo, Krista
