Baby Strollers: Finding the One That is Right For You

With their first baby, the minute most women get pregnant they immediately start thinking of all the supplies they are going to need to buy: clothes, diapers, bottles, blankets, cribs, car seats and most importantly – a stroller. Strollers are a crucial part to having a baby because it is the number one way you will be transporting them around until they are able to walk.

Comparing Size and Weight of Strollers

One of the main factors you should consider when purchasing a stroller is the size and weight of it. If you have a smaller vehicle, then you need to make sure that the stroller you buy can fold up and fit in your trunk or back seat. The last thing you want is to purchase an expensive stroller only to find out that it doesn’t fit in your car. This means you can only use it to walk your baby around the block. Whether you’re shopping online or in-store, make sure you check out the dimensions of the stroller.

 Snap and Go Travel Systems

Snap and go travel systems are incredibly helpful when it comes to being mobile with your baby. The car seat snaps into a base that is installed in your car and it also snaps into the stroller. This way, you don’t have to wake up your baby each time you need to enter or exit the car. All you have you have to do is snap the car seat in and out while your baby is safely strapped in.

Double Strollers

If you have multiple children or are pregnant with your 2nd, you might want to consider finding a double stroller. A double stroller has room for two babies to sit comfortably. If you want a snap and go system, make sure that the current car seat you own will fit the stroller model. This is a great way to save money. If you have to purchase a brand new double stroller, compare cost and sizing before you make your final choice.
