There are many, many strollers available on the market. If possible, ask to test the stroller before you purchase it. Different strollers have different handling options and some are more user-friendly than others. Most newer strollers are easy to assemble and take down. Many of the strollers available can be converted with one hand, so that you can continue to hold your baby while doing so. When choosing a stroller, you should consider a few things:
What kind of stroller did you decide to use with your baby? Was it easy to maneuver? How easy was it to set up and take down? Share your thoughts with other mothers that are in search of a stroller for their baby.As with any major baby purchase, always check for recalls before purchasing a stroller.
Does it fit into my car trunk? Bought one I LOVED and found it didnt :(
Is the back of the seat high enough so that when my older toldder is recline his head will not flop over edge (saw in many that this was a concern and many tots are in them beyond the age of 2 on occassion.)
Will my diaper bag fit underneath, another BIG thing I found was a concern at times.
Does it have a cup holder many high end ones dont and let me tell you, when you are out shopping you want a place to put your drink,sippy or the bottle other then just below. More then one holder is best, if it doesnt come with one check to see if htey have an option to get one that snaps on, some do.
How many recline positions are there? Many have just 2 and that is not good, if your child wants to sleep best almost fully reclined is best and an inbetween angle is good too, I found two of mine didnt offer the best placement.
Is there a tray for my child and does it come off? I had one without the tray and it was such a pain! My son cant leaning forward to touch the wheels and I was afraid he'd get hurt.
How big is the visor, some are tiny and do very little to block sun or rain.
Will it push easily on the grass? Many places you will visit will not have a smooth level ground, so you want it to move easily on rough areas. Hope this helps :)
