8 TOP TIPS FOR BUYING A BABY STROLLER
I can guess how and why a stroller was invented. We all know that small babies have to be carried about. Mothers would certainly welcome something that would enable them to have their hands free whenever they go anywhere with the baby.
There are many brands and varieties of strollers available in the market. They are very essential for the mothers and hence before buying one it is a good idea to check out the details. Few tips are given below to guide you on your stroller-buying event.
A good stroller should not be heavy. It should be light. You can carry it everywhere, to the shopping mall, while you are traveling or simply strolling. Its weight should be about 20 pounds.
The stroller should not be large. You must be able to keep in the boot of your car even with one hand. Mothers of small babies generally have only one free hand to use. It should be easily kept away by one hand.
The stroller should be strong and durable. The babies are active and the stroller should be strong enough to keep the babyís balance. It is useless to have a stroller that canít keep the babyís balance.
The stroller must have seat recliners that are adjustable, guard bars and so on. Small babies grow faster than you think and hence it should be able to support the baby at least in his growing years. Thus the stroller must be adaptable.
Safety is essential in every respect and even in the strollers. Thus, the strollers should have special features to look after the baby. Thus, straps, harness and holding bars are important in a stroller.
The baby should not be cramped in the stroller. There must be enough space for the baby to move a little. Again, there must be sufficient attachments like trays and baskets to keep the baby scuffs like feeding bottle, toys and food etc.
You must definitely consider the price. There are many companies that offer the same features at a lower price. You can check out these brands. We all know that we must never compromise on the quality for the price but it should definitely be considered.
To attract customers many manufactures offer special extras. You must consider these add ons. A stroller must have a cup holder, a sunshade, a big sturdy frame, a carry strap, reclining seat, a storage basket, a snack tray, a parent's tray and so on. Some other manufactures may offer you add ons like parentís gear bags, bottle pockets, and adjustable handles and so on. You must compare and then decide which one to buy.
