Strollers Gear

Although carriers are the most intimate way to carry your baby, a stroller is convenient for shopping excursions and for toddlers who have become too heavy to carry. Depending on your lifestyle and where you live, you may go through many different stages and types of strollers—the bassinet or stroller system used in the first months to a full-size stroller, a universal stroller that can be converted to carry a car seat, an umbrella stroller for an older child, or a jogging stroller designed for a smooth ride. If you are adding on to your family, and you already have a toddler, a double stroller can be convenient. Extra accessories include stroller netting, a travel bag to attach to the back of the stroller, and stroller hooks.

Age needed: Newborn

strollerWhen shopping for a stroller, consider your daily routine to help with your decision. Travel systems come equipped with a matching rear-facing car seat and car seat base, so you can move your baby’s car seat directly from the base into the stroller and back with ease. Lightweight “umbrella” strollers may be all that you need once your baby is sitting up well and can hold his head up. A jogger stroller has special wheels designed for use while jogging. If you have multiple children, double, triple, and quad strollers are available to fit your needs.
