Here are the questions you want to be asking as you shop for a baby stroller. Whether you are expecting a child or just in the market for a new stroller, these questions can help you make smart buying decisions.
What Are the Features?
Check out the wheel quality, sun protection, storage bins, how easy the fabric is to clean, and, most importantly, the safety associated with the stroller. You have to make sure your baby can stay buckled in safely as you walk along.
Brakes on the stroller are also important to prevent roll-aways. Also, be sure the stroller can grow alongside your child to prevent having to purchase many along the way.
What Is the Weight?
If you have to tote the stroller around, make sure you can carry it for long periods of time. If an elderly grandparent or person with back issues would like to push the baby, can they handle the stroller? [If you’re after a double stroller, Contours make some good ones – here’s my review]
Make sure the weight is one you don’t mind carrying in the event you would like to take it traveling or commuting around your city in crowded bus stops and train stations.
Can You Unfold It and Pack It Down Easily?
As you use your stroller, you are probably going to be holding your baby, or they will be resting in their car seat. You will also likely be holding a diaper bag. So, can you use one hand to fold and unfold the stroller?
Make sure the one you like isn’t overly complicated so you can get walking and enjoying time with your child faster and easier. If possible, try to practice using a friend or family member’s stroller, so you get the hang of it (and to ensure you really like it).
Is It Easy to Use?
Once you’ve selected your favorite stroller after doing some research, see about testing it first. Go to a baby store and see if they have a model you can wheel around.
Try to imagine how it will perform on uneven city sidewalks, trails or beaches, or other places your family might go together. Is it nice and smooth? Could you steer it with one hand? And how does it handle tight turns? Try it out as best you can before buying.
Can It Work for Newborns?
Check over the product details of the stroller you are most interested in. Can your newborn’s baby seat snap-in safely? How about the stroller itself? Does it recline and offer enough cushion to keep your newborn supported?
Also, the skin of babies is very sensitive, especially newborns’ so make sure it offers protection against the sun. Look for phrases like “bassinet mode” or “infant seat adaptable” if you plan on taking your newborn out for stroller walks.
What Environment Is This Stroller For?
A double stroller is probably not ideal for busy city streets, but you don’t need a tiny stroller if you live in a relatively rural area with lots of space and open parks. Also, think about yourself- you need a stroller that can handle diaper bags, baby toys, kids’ tablets, and snacks, plus your own personal items like a purse or blanket.
Which of these strollers do you like best? You can have many safe and comfortable walks with your baby using any of these strollers. Add in that they go anywhere and fold easily, and you have a real winner in terms of strollers that work. Which one are you going to get?
