How Choosing The Right Stroller Can Save Your Sanity

1:50 PM


 There’s nothing worse than trying to contend with a bulky and unwieldy stroller as well as trying to hold a child, or even control four. This is especially true when going up stairs or through narrow doorways, or when you’re trying to put the stroller away. You can end up hot, bothered, stressed and unhappy, with your child probably reflecting these feelings from you too.

This is why the right stroller for your needs can save you time, space and most important of all, your sanity, leaving you calm, collected and (relatively) stress-free.

What You Need Out Of a Stroller

Ideally, a stroller will be able to be used from birth up until about four years; will be adaptable, safe and lightweight, but durable. You need to think about your environment and where the stroller will be used most. For instance, country lane walking will require sturdier wheels than city living, which will need to be lightweight for stairway travel. Britax Lightweight Strollers are ideal as they offer very adaptable, durable travel systems that are designed for ease of use for the parents and a comfortable ride for your child. Multi-position seat means that they can be laid flat for newborns but also in a sitting position for toddlers who want to see the world. The seats can be taken out and baby car seats added in, making it useful for a wide variety of situations. Models are also available where seats are reversible so you can have your child facing you should you wish. If you need it to accommodate more than one child, you can add extra seating or consider a double stroller.

Britax strollers also have a one-handed pull fold mechanism, a compact folded size, and an automatic fold lock so it won’t unfold as you try to move it. A good stroller will also have a rain-cover, plenty of room for shopping and are comfortable for you push, stop and carry when folded.  

When you go to purchase your stroller, see if you can’t have a go at pushing it, folding it and opening it again, and see if it’s the right one for you.

  3. I've gone through SO many strollers but now I realize dropping a little more on a stroller may mean that it lasts longer and for more children down the line.
