Welcoming a baby into the family involves a lot of preparation. You should not only prepare for parenthood with the help of books and asking your doctor, family and friends for advice. You also have to prepare your room, select your crib, decide if we will give you breastfeeding or formula, buy the car seat and the stroller, among other things.
It is the latter that concerns us here. The baby's stroller is essential to move it down the street. You will even use it inside the house, to rock it when it does not fall asleep. In addition, it is an accessory that will accompany you for a long time, at least until the child begins to walk freely. Therefore, it is important to choose it carefully. Regardless of aesthetic taste and the budget you have, there are a series of criteria that you must take into account to choose the most appropriate one.
The dimensions of the cart are an aspect of the utmost importance. You must make sure that it fits correctly in the trunk of your car or the elevator of your home. It also has to fold easily, so you don't have to fight with the cart every time you want to store or transport it, usually with the baby in your arms in the meantime. Also for this reason, lightness is another fundamental aspect, not only so that it is not heavy to push on walks, but also to load it without too much effort when it is folded.
Some strollers carry only the carrycot or cuckoo, where the baby will go completely lying down during its first months. Then touch the step to the chair, so that it is more incorporated when it already supports its head. Evaluate if it is more worthwhile for you to buy both models separately or one that includes interchangeable accessories. In this regard, there are also those that can be adapted as a group 0 seat for the car or perhaps you prefer to leave a specific one only for the vehicle.
A stroller for a big city is not the same as for a quieter rural location, because in the first case it is essential that it be light and not too bulky to move freely between traffic and crowds. If you also want to use it for walks in nature or running with the cart, the wheels must be resistant and adapted for this purpose.
It is imperative that the stroller has a five-axis harness to restrain the baby. And that it has wheel stops, both of which are extremely important criteria from a safety perspective.
