How to Pick the Best Stroller for Your Baby

24You are shopping for a stroller, which means you are currently experiencing (or preparing to experience) a profound and exciting new way of life… either because you are having your first child or adding another to the brood.

This choice is only one of the many decisions you will be making during a period of many changes. There are a myriad of options that make it likely to find one that meets your exact specifications. But even as you shop from among the best baby strollers in the world, the wide selection can make this task overwhelming.

A stroller is an essential piece of baby gear, an every day necessity. Consider not only safety and functionality, but also personality and style. Just like your car says a lot about you, so does your baby’s vehicle!

Fortunately, everything you need to find the perfect buggy for your new precious cargo is in one place… here! No need to spend days hitting every baby superstore and boutique just to be disappointed in their limited inventory. We did that too… waddling around, tired and confused.

In the comfort of your home, you can browse hundreds of styles – compare prices, weight, dimensions, wheels, folding mechanisms, storage compartments, and unique features. We can help you decide which style best suites your family, whether it is a lightweight umbrella or a sturdy double jogger.

It won’t be long before you’ll be packing your sweet lovebug in your dream stroller and catching a bit of fresh air.

With a Few Clicks and a Baby, You’ll be Strolling Along!

In the case of strollers, one size does not fit all. The best one is the model that best fits… you! A few simple questions will get you on the right track. Relax! This will be fun. Remember, it’s all about you!

1. Who’s Riding?

Do you have an older child? Twins? Triplets? There’s a stroller to accommodate everyone. There are sit and stand strollers like the Peg Perego Pliko. There are double strollers like the side-by-side Maclaren Twin Triumph or the tandem Inglesina Domino Twin Chassis. Inglesina also makes a fabulous triple tandem, the Biposto Domino Trio Chassis. There are also double strollers that can be fitted with two infant car seats like the Peg Perego Duette.

2. Who’s Pushing?

5-foot 100 lb. mom or 6-foot 200 lb. dad have different physical requirements. Of course, 100 lb. mom also runs marathons and climbs mountains and dad… may be a couch potato. It’s all okay, we make no judgements. But you will want to ask yourself who is going to be doing most of the pushing, lifting, folding, etc. that comes with stroller ownership. For lightweights, there are lightweight strollers like the Maclaren Volo. Bugaboo Baby Strollers seem to be designed for taller people in mind, with adjustable handlebars and leg room that is comfortable no matter who is pushing.

3. Where are you going?

Amazingly enough, pausing to consider your environs will go a long way to help you select your perfect baby ride. So are you a city mouse, country mouse or suburban mouse? Just think, will you be strolling along pastoral country lanes (of the paved and unpaved variety) with the apple of your eye? Consider a traditional baby carriage or pram like the Bertini Bidwell Carriage or the exquisite Inglesina Classica.

If you are the more sporty type, the Bob Revolution gets top ratings among fitness enthusiasts. If you are a city mouse and find yourself in and out of public transportation, maneuvering crowded sidewalks and limited storage space, an umbrella stroller like the Maclaren Triumph is a good bet. Urbanites also love the ultra-compact when folded Quinny Buzz.

If you are among the growing population in the suburbs, you have room to move and a vehicle to do it. Pick the best travel stroller you can easily fold and lift into your trunk, that steers easily along both park paths and store aisles, and that can double as a packing mule for all the gear and loot you bring and/or acquire along the way. The Peg Perego Venezia, and Jeep Liberty Limited Urban are popular choices among suburbanites.

That wasn’t so hard, was it? You are on your way to stepping out with junior safely tucked into your perfect new stroller. Just don’t forget your purse, keys, diapers, wipes, change of clothes, bottle, pacifier, other kid…

Make Way For Modern Baby Strollers

23There’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. As previously alluded to, there really isn’t any limit on the numerous features – and price tags – for baby strollers on the market today!

Seat-Carrier Frame Strollers

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!

Combo Strollers

“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.

Travel System Strollers

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!

Old Fashioned Baby Buggies

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 Baby Strollers

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.

The ‘ironman’ models are made with deep compartments and plenty of room. They have designed-in shock absorbers on all 4 wheels and are manufactured to withstand plenty of punishment. But they’re bulky. Yes, they are firm and stable, but rather massive.

There are several features found in traditional strollers like snack trays, lots of baby gear storage, one-handed folding capabilities, and adjustable seating. Some are actually all-in-one models and might be designed to work with bassinets and car seats. But they do have a tendency to be a bit on the heavy side so traveling with them is more of a task.

Umbrella Strollers

Umbrella strollers are aptly named due to their handles that resemble those on an umbrella. These strollers are extraordinarily lightweight and very convenient for traveling. Most umbrella strollers fold easily but the ride tends to be a bit rough (depending on the terrain). Umbrellas make a great spare stroller and their priced very reasonably.

All-Terrain Strollers

While on the topic of terrain, we like to take our babies EVERYWHERE we tend to go! Including off road. This can be where an all-terrain stroller earns its keep.

These strollers are heavy-duty and can take the punishment due to oversized bicycle-like tires. And yes, they are inflatable! And these strollers are equipped with 3 of them. Bicycle-like tires give the baby a gentler ride. Plus they’re capable of handling heavier loads which makes them ideal for ‘larger’ babies and also when you’re transporting extra baby gear.

Jogging strollers

Since we include our babies in many of our activities, we need a stroller that is as mobile as we are. You can find strollers especially made for active parents who wish to include their little ones with them on their runs.

A stroller designed for jogging is a three-wheeled apparatus with oversized, air-filled tires. These strollers have extra long handles which positions the stroller a little more out in front of the jogger so running legs have ample space to move and not be hindered by the stroller frame.

Safety features on this kind of stroller come with a front brake and a wrist strap so everything stays in control at all times. This being extremely important. Their rugged design allows the stroller to go off the beaten path like an all-terrain stroller.

There are a number of baby stroller features to work with your active lifestyle. From traditional buggies, all-in-one travel units, lightweight umbrella strollers and extra hardy strollers for active families, you’re sure to find the perfect baby stroller to complement your individual preference and baby transportation needs.

Where to Buy Cheap Baby Girl Clothes and Toddler Boy Clothing

20Parents know very well that having a baby is an expensive undertaking. There are the doctor’s visits, nursery items, formula milk, diapers, and all the other baby essentials. It is quite useless to argue in cutting down the baby expenses, not because you wish to spoil your child, but because it simply is inarguable. Your baby needs a lot of things and you want to give him or her the best. Besides, he or she has special needs and as a parent, you are responsible in sustaining them.

One of the most important things that a baby needs is clothing. Clothes are what protect him or her from the overwhelming environment and you would not want to be stingy on purchasing enough of these to protect him or her well. Fortunately, there are some ways on how to cut back on expenses when buying clothes for kids.

For example, whether you are looking for some toddler boy clothing or baby girl clothing, you can opt to buy them from second-hand stores. Sure, some parents may take this negatively because buying second-hand may imply buying low-quality items, but this is not necessarily so, especially when it comes to toddler clothes. A lot of them are still very usable and just need some thorough washing. In fact, some of them are even good as new. Anyway, once they have been washed well, your child would have new clothes to wear and you have new savings in your pocket too. This money can very well go for other expenses such as diapers and baby foods.

There are also toddler boy clothing as well as baby girl clothing available in department store sales. Rummage through the clearance racks and look for toddler clothing which are already out of season. You may be amazed at how low you can buy them now compared to their original prices. However, since your baby will not be wearing them until the next year, make sure that you pick a bigger size than his or her current size. This is to make sure that the clothes will fit just right when the time comes.

Purchasing toddler boy clothing as well as baby girl clothing can also be done wholesale. If you didn’t know yet, there is actually a big market of wholesale out there which are selling designer clothes for babies as well as non-branded ones. Parents need to buy a lot of clothes for their toddlers because they can get dirty and messy very quickly. This is especially true with little boys. They are so active and they never seem to tire of running around and climbing everywhere. If you didn’t invest in a lot of toddler boy clothing, he might end up running around in just his diaper because all his clothes will be in the laundry basket. Thanks to wholesale stores, you can buy baby clothes in bulk at a reasonable price!

Finally, when buying wholesale toddler boy clothing or girl clothing, you should buy different sizes. This is to ensure that your child will have clothes to wear as he or she grows. You must also remember to buy clothes for different seasons. This way, your baby will not run out of appropriate clothes to wear all year-round.
