Choosing The Right Stroller

When choosing your stroller there are some things to keep in mind.  There are so many brands, so many styles, the options are endless.  You need to look at what will be best to accommodate you and your husband when choosing your baby’s stroller. Here are some tips for choosing a stroller.

  • You first want to decide if you want a stroller with the infant carrier.  The combo is beneficial for some.  It makes things easier for those first few months.
  • Be sure the stroller will fit your newborn comfortably.  Newborns are not able to sit up and are tiny which can make the stroller uncomfortable for your baby.  Try and find a stroller that reclines so you newborn will be comfortable in it.
  • You want to look for a harness that is not terribly difficult for you to get your baby in and out of, but still too difficult that your baby can’t plan the great escape.
  • Look out for the brakes on the stroller to be sure that it won’t unlock easily.  Safety first.
  • Keep an eye out on the canopy.  You want to make sure it will be big enough to block the baby form sun or any other weather conditions you may find yourself in.
  • Storage is a huge thing for me and my husband.  Make sure it folds up easily and can be stored away nicely.  The first time I tried folding up the stroller I looked like a fool for 15 minutes trying to fold it, when it was one little button.  I looked ridiculous. Make sure it is easy to fold and unfold.

The best way to know how you feel about a stroller it to really test it out with your husband in the store.  Do not be afraid to take the stroller around the aisle, fold it, unfold it, whatever you need to do to be sure it will be comfortable for you and your baby.
