Safety! That’s the word boss when it comes to any accessory for the little ones. In my pregnancies I researched a lot which cart to buy, so as not to have headaches and yet they appeared. Stroller that holds the baby’s finger, which closes by itself … Who has never heard of a story like this? So I separated some tips of what criteria besides safety, that the first time mom can take into account. Come on?
Some strollers are very small, they are considered strollers for newborns. The stroller spaces are smaller to prevent the baby from falling, they are also called the crib stroller, as many moms use the stroller to accommodate the child in the first days of life. In these smaller strollers, accommodating a larger baby for strolls can become a headache, because it is not the ideal size for larger children. With the growth of babies, this crib stroller for newborns can become very small and if the intention is to use it for some time, I advise you to find a stroller of a slightly larger size . However, a very large cart can also get in the way of putting it in the trunk of the car, so the ideal is the balance between things.
Many moms appreciate the ease of opening and closing the baby stroller, because when alone, you have to hold the baby in one hand or even when you don’t have it, opening a stroller with difficulty is not at all pleasant and can take mom even to give up the ride. See, the cart opens and closes at least four times at each exit, it ends up getting tiring and making the ride a headache even when Dad is around. Check models that can be closed with just one hand, some famous brand like Peg Pérego and Burigotto has models with ease of opening and closing.
Safety is fundamental to the cart choice
Weight is also important for those who want a cart to carry in the trunk. The strollers of old were real white elephants, heavy and difficult to carry. The first cart I had was one of these. Although the brand was very good, it had the added weight and was not at all compact. So I advise you to go to a store to test or if you are going to buy online, at least check the models, weights and note which are the best models to buy.
Color and hygiene
It is known that the darker colors camouflage the dirt of the day much better, but a stroller that is easy to remove the accessories for washing and good cleaning conditions are essential. There are smart materials that just a damp cloth with neutral detergent for cleaning, others of more complicated fabrics that accumulate dust and stains.
Purpose of the cart
Do you want a stroller to take the baby with, or do you want one to leave the house and take the baby with you wherever you go? There are several models but one suitable for babies who will always walk with their parents should be more practical, as well as a stroller that is light, easy to open and close , as well as compact to fit in any trunk. But if you want a stroller for everyday use, a larger size can meet your expectations. The umbrella stroller is suitable for children over 6 months, as they can already sit.
Points to consider
Most strollers have a reversible handle, which helps a lot when the baby is small. So whoever takes it can look and take care of the baby while walking. Others do not have this facility and still others have the option of reversing the bank, which I don’t think is practical, but in models where the price is what weighs more for mom, it can compensate. Latches, super important and must be safe. The three-wheeled stroller is good for moms or dads who want to take their baby to practice sports such as running, their tires are suitable for this purpose. The four-wheeler is also excellent, but for everyday use.
The support bars at the front of the stroller can cause accidents, as well as the seat belt and adjustment. If making sure that the cart has good locks is essential, usually in the store you will have an advice about it, but on the internet there are several tutorials from the most diverse brands, so it would make a difference to see your desired brand. Every stroller should have good brakes to prevent accidents , and a seat belt should be worn even on very small babies. You never know what can happen, so prevention is the best solution.
Most baby strollers have baby comfort options as a complement to the set. I advise you to buy together, as these sets, besides being beautiful, are much more affordable than when purchased separately. The comfort baby is mandatory in cars to transport the child, so if you have to buy the set it is a great request.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
