Things to Consider When Buying a Stroller

A secure, trustworthy, and easy-to-use stroller is a must-have item for any new parent. Stroller prices range from $30 to hundreds of dollars, so be sure to shop around for the most value for your money before making a purchase. Useful information is available by asking these simple queries.

Where will you use it? 

It’s difficult to maneuver through city streets in many mid-range vehicles because they tend to be large and clumsy. You may not be able to fit your handbag, diaper bag, and other things into a smaller umbrella stroller’s basket. Having a plan for where you’ll take your stroller is half of the battle.

Is it safe for babies to use?

Make sure you read the fine print. If you have a baby, you can use some strollers with a deep recline or bassinet mode, which means that you can use them right away. When an infant can control his or her neck and sit up on his or her own, he or she is a good candidate for several models. Some models may require an additional car seat or bassinet to be infant-ready, so be sure to read the fine print before purchasing.

How long do you intend to use it? 

While some models may cost more upfront, their capacity to grow with your child over time could save you money in the long run. Using the same stroller for more than one child is an option. As a result, you may want to look for a model that can be expanded upon, such as one that includes an additional seat for another child.

How simple is it to use? 

In the end, it’s always a good idea to go for a test drive so you can see how your favorites stack up against each other — and to keep in mind that the showroom floor may not indicate how a specific model performs on uneven sidewalks or mountainous terrain. Is it easy to control? Is it possible to use it with only one hand? In a tight bend, how does it perform?

Is folding and unfolding easy? 

When folding or unfolding the stroller, it’s best to make the process as simple as possible. Many versions claim to be one-handed folds, but it’s best to check them out before you buy.


How much weight does it have?

Traveling light is always preferable. However, keep an eye out for the fine print, as one manufacturer may describe a 25-pound stroller as “lightweight” while another may claim it is only 12 pounds. To put it another way, when you’re carrying your infant and diaper bag and stroller up and down endless flights of stairs or squeezed into the cramped subway in the city, that can make all the difference.

Is there a need for more?

Do you require more than one? It’s possible that you’d prefer an umbrella stroller on the road, but a full-sized stroller for hectic days at home. For some families, no matter how ingeniously planned, a single stroller just doesn’t cover all the bases. You may want to think about splitting your stroller budget rather than spending a lot of money on one stroller. A full-size stroller for everyday use and an umbrella stroller for travel are two options you may want to consider.

Useful Features to Look for in a Stroller

Security features

Make sure the stroller you’re considering is safe before you buy it.

Good wheels

Having flimsy wheels means fewer miles logged because they get stuck on rough terrain (including bumpy sidewalks) and snap more easily.

Canopy for the sun

To protect your baby from the sun, rain, and other elements, look for long or adjustable canopies. Several strollers have a glass or vented windows so that you can protect your child while still keeping an eye on her.


As a new parent, you’ll need a lot of storage space. When you’re out and about, a stroller with a spacious underbelly for storing stuff is a godsend.

Fabric that can be washed

Babies are notoriously soiled. When you factor in a baby’s messiness, such as snack crumbs and snot, together with normal wear and tear, it’s no wonder your stroller will be battered. You’ll get more use out of your stroller if you get one with a washable cloth.


As a new parent, you want a stroller that can grow with your child, and perhaps even beyond if you decide to have other children.
