There are so many options available when it comes to looking for baby strollers for your child. The 3 important things take you need to take into consideration when purchasing a baby stroller is your budget, your lifestyle and your child’s needs.
- Your Child’s Needs
Babies and toddlers have different needs when it comes to baby strollers. However most models these days are adapted to care for them as they grow bigger. Newborn babies need to travel in a lay-flat position for the first few months so you will need to choose a baby stroller which is either a pram seat unit, a lay-flat seat unit, or just basic baby stroller which is compatible with a carrycot to create a lay-flat pram mode for your baby. If you want your baby to travel facing you, then get a baby stroller with a reversible seat unit. This means younger babies can feel assured by seeing you, and for older and more inquisitive babies, the seat can be put in forward facing mode to allow them to see the world around them.
- Your lifestyle
Where will you travel with your baby? How do you usually travel with your baby? Do you use your own car, the LRT, or public buses? Are you a jogger? Do you walk a lot? You can get baby strollers which suit city lifestyle, beachside ad countryside or even some baby strollers that are all rounders which are well suited for all city, beachside and countryside environments.
For city lifestyles, select a baby stroller that is easy to maneuver for steering through crowded places and make sure it is foldable. On the other hand, if you travel by car a lot, a baby travel system makes it easier to move your baby from the car seat to the ground. Make sure that your baby stroller fits in the boot of your car. If you use public transports a lot, get a baby stroller that is easy to fold and is very lightweight. While getting in and out of the buses or trains, you can hold your foldable baby stroller on one hand and your little baby n the other hand just for while before you reassemble the baby stroller again.
- Your Budget
Baby strollers come in various prices to suit every budget there is out there. A complete baby travel system can be a good investment as you will not need to purchase a separate baby’s car seat. If you are planning to have another baby, focus on baby strollers which are expandable or allows the addition of another seat unit.
