Choosing a stroller is more like choosing a car. Strollers come with several style options, different kinds of materials and an assortment of features to make your life easier on the go. Not to mention, you will rely on your stroller to get you and your baby from point A to point B just as much, if not more, than your car. As a busy mother of a newborn, you will need a stroller that has all the gadgets and comes fully-equipped to make your daily life radically easy. We know your baby is precious cargo, so we made a list of a few things you should consider when choosing a stroller.
Where will you be doing most of your strolling?
The terrain you will be transporting your little one determines the type of tire and level of suspension your stroller needs to keep your baby safe, secure and comfortable while the two of you are out and about. If you’re a city mom, you might not need a stroller equipped with heavy-duty wheels––plastic wheels may do the trick. If you’ll be using your stroller on rougher terrain, you may need to look into air-filled rubber or foam-filled tires. Likewise, the wheel suspension should be equipped to handle the terrain without jostling your baby around.
What is your budget when buying a stroller?
Strollers can be a big ticket item, so it’s important to consider your budget when choosing one. If you know what you’re looking for, you can find a high-quality stroller that fits your needs at a reasonable price.
Is the handlebar high enough?
Before purchasing one, take the stroller out for a push test, and don’t overlook the height of the handlebar. Make sure the stroller you choose is comfortable for you to walk with and steer because you will be doing your fair share of strolling as a new mommy.
Is there enough room for storage?
Sure, there will be plenty of times when you take your little one for a nice morning stroll around the neighborhood, but you will also need your stroller for errands. Having enough storage to keep a diaper bag handy or carry groceries out to the car makes mommy’s life a whole lot easier.
What features do you need in a stroller?
Strollers come with all sorts of variations of accessories and features. Do you need a stroller with a detachable car seat? A rain cover? Are cup-holders important to you? Easy to operate breaks? Do you need your stroller to be easy to fold? Choose a stroller that has all the features you need to fit your new mommy lifestyle.
Strollers come in all shapes and sizes so make sure you choose the stroller that makes for a happy mommy and a happy baby.
