Stroller Buying Guide
An easy to maneuver, safe, and durable stroller is at the top of every new parent's essentials.
What to Consider
- The highest use of a stroller is between 6-36 months. Many parents prefer using a carrier before that- however, if you plan on using a stroller for the first 6 months, check on just how much the seat reclines, whether the baby can face you or not, neck support etc. It is also common for people to buy 2 different type of strollers- one size need not fit all ages!
Type of surface/terrain for the "ride"
- Unless you plan to jog or trek with the stroller, most SG surfaces that the stroller will find itself on- e.g. playgrounds, pavements, mall floors are paved and smooth and may not require heavy duty wheels.
Use of public transport
- Taxis, buses and trains need a stroller that is easy to fold and light enough for you to carry (along with baby and accessories)
Your hierarchy of needs
- Given the zillion features each stroller promises, figure out what's really important for you and pick accordingly- some features can be compensated by accessories (e.g. hooks and trays or rain canopy) but others (e.g. folding mechanism, adjustable handbars) are something you will live through daily.
