Question

How does the seat recline?

Does the stroller use a strap to reline the seat into any position you want or does it use one of those metal pre-measured increment where there are only like 3 different postions. I like the where you can just click the recliner into a position like my other stroller.

Seat reclines with a strap. I was reluctant at first (because I also like the quick metal bar adjustment) but it turns out it's still very quick to get it where you want (the belt easily slide, and stays, into position) so I quickly got over it.

A strap with a buckle.at the back of the seat, adjusts the recline. So, once you set it, you would have to tighten up again for it to go back to upright. There is no metal bar at the top....just fabric. If your daughter is over 41 inches tall, her head may come past the top of the stroller seat.

There is no metal bar, so there should be no worries of her hitting her head. As for the seat moving with her... if she has the shoulder harness on, the seat will move with her. If you remove the shoulder harness and just use the lap belt, the seat will stay reclined.

Yes, and to be honest the snack bar is actually one of my favorite parts about the stroller because you can just take one side out and put the baby in and out without taking the whole bar off. It has a ball joint on each side so you can unclip from either side and take baby out or just let it hang to the side so you dont have to detach it from the stroller. It's actually nice! :-)

Yes, the front snack tray of the Contours Lite stroller can be easily removed. To rotate or remove the front tray, press in on the orange release button located near the side housing and pull up on the tray. Repeat this on the other side to completely remove the tray. More information on this, including a detailed image, can be found on page 9 of the instruction manual.

My LO is 10 months old and she reaches forward to grab things from the tray/cup holder. In the most upright position she is able to view things ahead of her. She can move her legs freely and also gets a good view of her surroundings in all positions. But I do agree the try is a little high.

I have this stroller and love it! Unfortunately it does not accommodate an infant carrier car seat but it does not bother me. My son still uses the infant carrier car seat but I still choose to use this stroller rather than the stroller that came with the car seat. When we go out I just take him out of the car and put him into this stroller. This stroller is lightweight and easier to carry around versus the stroller that comes with the infant carrier car seat.

Hi Jrester,
The recline/incline has various levels due to an adjustable strap. Unlike the bar recline models, the strap lets you adjust to many different levels. The seat goes as upright as needed to see up over the tray for our petite 1 year old. I'm not sure what you're looking for, but I thought this might help.
