5 what to Ask Yourself Before You Choose a Stroller
1. WHAT PERFORM SOME HANDLEBARS FEEL LIKE?
You are going to have a solid grip on these for a couple years at least, so be sure they feel nice in the hands. Some are plastic, some are foam, plus some are leather (oh, you fancy huh?), and unless you are focused on making “stroller gloves” a thing, you should pick whichever one you like best.
2. WILL THE FABRIC SHOW EVERY STAIN?
This is more info on colour than actual material, since most strollers are available with similar washable fabrics. Needless to say, you are kidding yourself if you were to think you’re going to clean that thing more often than once in a blue moon, so pick a fabric that may best camouflage spit up and ground-up goldfish crackers. Actually, camouflage would do well here. This isn’t a period to decide on white. We repeat. Do not under any circumstance buy a white stroller. Unless of course you are Puff Daddy.
3. ARE THE TIRES AIR-FILLED? WHY DO I CARE?
Great question! Air filled tires provide you with a much smoother ride than plastic or rubber since they absorb most of the impact from bumps and cracks when you look at the sidewalk. This means baby sleeps soundly and it isn’t woken up every time you roll over a pebble. Believe us, you care about that.
4. BASIC BLACK, OR BRIGHT AND COLORFUL?
We have already established that white is not a choice, but let’s say that you aren’t focused on stains and generally are basing you colour choice solely by which one will suit your wardrobe the very best. Do not act like you haven’t already seriously considered this. Of course, black goes with everything, but so does ketchup and you don’t see us mixing that into our baby’s bottle. All we’re saying is, don’t automatically default to black. If you found a stroller that fits every requirement on the list, and comes in a range of shades, take the time to think about it. Plus, pushing something bright orange up a steep hill may indeed prevent you from drifting off to sleep during the wheel during the first couple of months.
5. DO I WOULD LIKE A BASSINET?
If you’d like to keep your car seat strapped to your car as much as you possibly can, then a bassinet is a no-brainer. It’s cozy, warm, and doubles as a bed for day trips to see the grandparents. However, if you want on utilizing your child car seat as the new third arm, then a bassinet may just become a bulky extra that takes up way too much room in your trunk.
