Umbrella strollers are useful when your baby is a little older and doesn't need much support to sit. They are good to take on quick walks, plane trips or anywhere where you don't want to cart around anything too heavy.
These type of stroller is a good inexpensive addition to have, but it's probably not a good idea to make it your only alternative to cart your baby. You'll still need the regular stroller for longer walks where your baby may take a nap, or shopping trips that may require extra room for all your bags.
