Strollers look like seat on wheels. These are used to carry babies up to three years. This is a convenient way to carry the baby. They are easily maneuverable. Parents can take their babies wherever they want without having to actually carry them. They also avoid the trouble of actually carrying them and at the same time assured that the child is secure and safe in the stroller as they would be in their arms. The stroller takes little space even for turning. There are strollers for carrying two and even three children. The children are accommodated side by side or one behind the other.
The standard strollers, travel system strollers, umbrella strollers and jogging strollers are the different models of strollers that are available in the market. The most common and popular stroller is the standard strollers. Their main features are its sun canopy and the many compartments for storage. For this reason, they are also heavier and costly. But then the price varies with the features that they have. The child, whether an infant or toddler, can be carried as the seat can be reclined. The travel system stroller is just like the standard stroller except an addition of a car seat. This is to add to the comfort of the baby, particularly if the baby is an infant prone to sleeping more. The baby can be shifted from a car to the stroller with the car seat without disturbing the sleeping baby. The umbrella strollers are lighter and easily transported. They do not have either the storage compartment or sun canopy as in standard stroller making the stroller light and reducing the cost. The jogging stroller replaces the standard four wheels of the stroller with three wheels where the wheel is larger. This is to give it more stability and comes in useful when it is pushed fast or on rough terrain.
The different brands of strollers that are available in the market include Graco Strollers, Chicco Strollers, Kolcraft Strollers, Inglesina Strollers, baby Rock Star stroller, Maclaren Strollers, Stokke Strollers and Schwinn Strollers. The materials used and the features included in the stroller determines its price.
The most important thing that you should make sure is that the stroller is stable and its wheels touch the ground. Does the stroller tip or wobble? Check for sharp edges that could injure the baby. Are the screws covered with plastic so that the baby will not be able to loosen them?
Moms and babies benefit a lot from using strollers. Strollers make moms very well assured that babies are safe and sound.
