Tips When Selecting Baby Strollers For Your Baby

Aug 26, 2008
When people are expecting the arrival of their first child, one of the important items that they will need to shop for is the baby stroller. Baby strollers are one of those very basic and fundamental necessities that help parents when on shopping trips, errand running, and exercising, such as walking or jogging. A good stroller will make the experience easy, while at the same time assuring the safety of the baby.

In many cases, new or expecting parents find themselves completely overwhelmed by the many choices and decisions they need to make about outfitting the nursery and choosing the furniture, equipment, and accessories to properly prepare for a newborn. When it comes to choosing a stroller, there are hundreds of offerings in various baby stroller models and styles, all made by dozens of different manufacturers of baby various baby accessories and equipment.

Baby strollers are designed to safely accommodate a wide range of children, from newborn infants to toddlers. This means you will be using your baby stroller for several years, so you want to choose one that is durable, with features to make it fully adaptable to the needs of your child as he or she grows and develops.

One of the main considerations when looking at the selection of strollers is how large the stroller will be when it is folded up. In most cases, parents will fold up the stroller and put it in the car to go to their destination, then secure the child in their baby car seat for the journey, and then unfold the stroller to take the baby into store or the mall. You need to be aware of the folded size of the stroller and the amount of space that will be needed in your vehicle to stow it.

Because of the need to fold and unfold strollers almost constantly, another important consideration is the mechanism that is built-in for folding it up. There are some models that can be folded or unfolded with one hand and these are particularly convenient when you don't want to set the child down to deal with folding up the baby stroller.

For some people, a lightweight stroller is an important criterion. This is especially true if you will be traveling frequently by air, bus or train and need to take the stroller along on the trip. Umbrella strollers are one popular option because they are easy to fold and carry. However, they do not have much in the way of additional storage areas. If you need space on the stroller for a lot of baby travel accessories, then this type may not be the best choice.

There is also a selection of baby strollers that have a special purpose, such as a jogging stroller that is more rugged and specially designed for parents who enjoy a very active lifestyle. Twin strollers are a good solution not only for families with twins, but for any family with a couple of young children under the age of four.

Most recently, there have also been some stroller models that feature a baby car seat as the main seating area. This lets the parent transfer the child from car to stroller and back again without unbuckling, moving and buckling up again.
