In This Article, Bubs n Grubs Expose the advantages and disadvantages of strollers..
A lot of trouble and inconvenience can be encountered if a parent chooses to buy the wrong baby stroller. Unfortunately, at Bubs n Grubs, we see it regularly. First time parents, talked into buying the wrong stroller by a baby store or friend… or the wrong stroller chosen for the wrong reasons. What’s the best way to pick out a great stroller for you and your baby? Bubs n Grubs say think practical. Don’t get swayed by new colours. Given the wide range of strollers available, it is important to determine the stroller characteristics that match your lifestyle, and then compare those stroller models that fit your needs.
Of course the most important thing is the infant’s safety and Bubs n Grubs are the first to remind you of that. According to Bubs n Grubs expert staff, even when the nappy bag is hung against the handles, the stroller should stay upright, which is one of the stability features of a stroller. Don’t forget to evaluate the harness. For infants and babies in strollers, the safest fastening solution is a five-point harness. Be on the lookout also for sharp corners and places that pinch.
Before buying do a “test run” in the shop with the stroller. Any good baby store like Bubs n Grubs, will promote you test driving a stroller. The handles’ height must be considered, because your comfort is also important. To avoid stooping too much, tall parents should look for stroller handles with adjustable heights. Strollers that can turn easily are a good idea if you live in a crowded neighborhood with small foot paths. To ensure the wheels don’t come in the way of your feet, try walking with the strollers at a quick pace. A good feature is when the handles are comfortably covered in foam. Your Bubs n Grubs professional consultant can help you with all of these things.
Convenience Features Of Strollers
Would you like to carry the nappy bag with the stroller in the basket underneath or elsewhere? Parent organization trays, toy bars, snacks and drinks holders etc. are part of some strollers. If you find a stroller that you love but it is lacking a feature that you require, check if the feature is available for separate purchase prior to being deterred from the stroller of your dreams. Good baby stores like Bubs n Grubs offer a large range of pram accessories. It’s also key to think about the way the stroller will fold and how much space it will take up in your boot. Make certain it’s easy to fold, unfold and store away your stroller.
From the old umbrella stroller lightweight strollers have come a long way. Although these strollers under 10Kg’s strollers are very light, they have all those comfort features eg. storage baskets, that a bigger one has. This is the perfect stroller choice, if you travel a lot.
If you are seeking an economical, space saving stroller option, you may wish to consider an umbrella stroller. However, be aware that some umbrella stroller models lack a reclining seat and thus cannot be used for infants unable to sit up on their own.
While the light weight strollers are easier to carry and take apart for bus rides, the bigger or standard size strollers offer a large range of amenities such as ergonomic handles, music, large seats and extra storage space. Most parents love Standard strollers as they do well in most conditions. If you travel a lot, you have to know, these strollers are easy to fold, but they are bigger than others, and heavier to lift. You might find it hard to deal with a big stroller in a crowded spot.
Joggers and running prams
Parents who hike a lot can think about buying a jogging stroller instead a standard one. Strollers for jogging can be used on any kind of terrain, because of their big, strong tires, smooth frames and great brakes. Jogging strollers are often less compact than other stroller models. For parents who are always on the move, there may be more ideal stroller model options. For babies that are older than six months, jogging strollers are the best.
It is often convenient to choose a travel system. A standard stroller is part of the travel system, but then a baby car seat snaps into it and lets parents move the baby from auto to stroller with ease. The frequent buckling/unbuckling of the infant seat can be done away with,with the latest permanent car seat base available in most of the travel systems. Parents just need to snap the infant seat into the base. Travel systems do the job of regular strollers when the capsule gets too small for the baby.
