There’s baby gear for everything, and that certainly includes strollers! When it comes to baby accessories, strollers are certainly available in a very wide selection of shapes, size, features and benefits. When narrowing down your ideal baby stroller, first consider the kind of baby transportation you need. Maybe you have in mind something to transport baby – and all that equipment – along the lines of a traditional stroller. You might even find that having more than one stroller is a smart move.
We’ll examine some basic strollers to consider. baby strollers As previously alluded to, there really isn’t any limit on the numerous features – and price tags – for baby strollers on the market today!
These models are made for newborns who can’t sit up on their own yet. For that reason, this sort of stroller is not equipped with an adjustable seat. In fact, there isn’t a seat! It lays flat and designed to carry a newborn car seat for any walk-abouts you wish to do. No need waking up the baby either. Simply transport the car seat directly to the stroller and off you go!
“Combos” – are a carriage and stroller in one. This kind of design can be used with a brand new infant. They are designed to carry your baby laying flat in either a car seat or bassinet.
In theory, you’ll be able to use this sort of stroller from birth up through the toddler years. (It supports around 40 pounds). And when the baby gets older, you can use the adjustable seat attachment for the correct sitting setup. These strollers can get rather expensive though, priced all the way to $900. But for this high dollar you get plenty of options such as additional storage space for extra baby gear and large canopies for protection from the sun and rain.
For mobility, these units are awesome! Babies who aren’t capable of sitting up can be moved right in their car seat, which securely fastens right to the stroller. When it’s time to head back to the car, simply raise the seat off the stroller and snap it into the car’s safety belt system. Very convenient!
These ‘old school’ models of strollers are still seen today. They usually have spoked-wheels and lots of room for baby and all that baby gear. Carriages are perfect for newborns and a few models have removable ‘carrying cots’.
The not-so-good news is that carriages are pretty big, cumbersome and not overly maneuverable. They’re particularly awkward to use in crowed city environments where you will encounter quite a few obstacles to contend with. Still, if ‘old fashion’ appeals to you, these strollers are big and roomy and provide a touch nostalgia for the past.
Traditional strollers are in the ‘everything including the kitchen sink’ class. Traditional strollers vary from lightweight designs all the way to massive, industrial-strength models.
