How to: Find the perfect stroller
One of the most important purchases you will make for your baby is the stroller. Babies spend lots of time in their stroller, so it is important to either transition your stroller or find one that is transitional from birth to the toddler stage.
In addition to finding the perfect stroller for your baby, you want to make sure that your stroller fits in with your lifestyle. Even the most seasoned mom has criteria that must be met, and all strollers are not created equal.
Here are a few things to bear in mind when selecting your baby stroller:
First, you need to identify what your needs are. Are you looking to up-grade for every stage or are you looking for a quality, long lasting investment? If you are a first time mom, and plan on having other kids, you may want to invest in a multi-functional, good quality, transitional stroller.
There are a few brands out there that do a really good job in their additions. They include, rain guards, mosquito netting and even a bassinet for your baby’s infant stage. This type of stroller is an investment and given all the additions, it is not the lightest in weight.
You can also get added parts for these high model strollers that include a stroller board that sits on the back of the stroller so that your toddler can take advantage of the ride. It looks very similar to a skate board, and attaches on the back of the stroller for standing. You can also get additional seats that either attaches on the top or underneath the stroller. These types of strollers are perfect for a mom that has smaller kids or the first time mom that plans on having more kids.
If you are an active mom that travels often, and needs products to be practical and functional, you should look for a light-weight, sturdy, one-piece, no-hassle stroller design. Functional and practical sometimes means giving up on trendy, bright and colorful strollers, but there are a couple brands that give you the best of both worlds-a practical, functional stroller with bright, bold color upgrades, as an option. These strollers are often very light weight compared to the bigger, upgraded models.
Choose a stroller for your style and preference. It’s still important to make sure you are getting a stroller that you like, albeit comfort and function is typically at the top of the list. If you can’t live without color, you should probably look for a company that offers strollers that appeal to your eyes. With so many stroller lines out there, it has become relatively easy to find one that fits in with your style while offering the upgrades and functionality you need.
