Baby Strollers Explained!

The right stroller can make such a big difference in your daily life with your little one! Some strollers are too heavy, some are too flimsy, and some have specific weight and height requirements. Here is a guide to help you pick out the perfect stroller for your growing family. And if you already have a stroller and are looking for some useful accessories you can click here

Full-Sized Stroller:

If you’re looking for a do-all stroller, a full size stroller may be the one to invest in. Most full-sized strollers have bassinets you can purchase for an additional fee, so your baby can lay down (and take naps) in the stroller when needed. Plus, full-sized strollers convert into a toddler-sized stroller. Most full-sized strollers come with a range of features, so if a large undercarriage for storage is important for you, or a well padded seat, testing these out in person is the best way to judge what works for you. 

Umbrella Stroller:

Sometimes known as an lightweight stroller, the umbrella stroller often weighs 15 lbs or less and is great for travel or everyday use for babies 6 months and older. It can be easy to fold and store away, and most of them have a good recline, a sun canopy and undercarriage storage!

Compact Travel Stroller:

There are a few strollers that are designed specifically for travel, so they often weigh under 10 lbs and have limited features. Some of them fold down to the size of a backpack. These strollers are only a good investment if you do a lot of traveling or are very limited on space and need a stroller for your baby that is over 6 months. 

Double Stroller:

If you have twins, or two kids under two, a double stroller is your best option. This stroller can come in two different ways: side-by-side seating or tandem, where one child sits behind the other. The only downside to the double stroller is that it can take up quite a bit of space and is on the heavier side — but that’s because it’s literally two strollers in one.

Car Seat Carrier:

The car seat carrier stroller is one that is designed to fit your car seat. It doesn’t come with a seat; it’s a carrier with wheels that your car seat clicks into. This is helpful for keeping your sleeping baby asleep without having to take them out of the car seat and place them into a stroller. The downside is that once they outgrow the infant car seat, which is around 3-5 months, you won’t have much use for it. 

Luxury Stroller:

If you want a fabulous stroller and money is no object, then a luxury stroller is definitely for you. Some strollers can cost up to $2,000 (!!!) and come with some pretty impressive bells and whistles. Some luxury strollers even come with designer prints and are gold plated. If you got the means, go get yourself that fabulous stroller you’ve had your eye on. You and your baby deserve it!

Why is Swaddling So Important?

Swaddling is super important because it makes babies feel safe and cozy, just like they were in mommy's tummy. It helps them sleep better by preventing startle reflex and keeps them warm without overheating. Swaddling is like giving them a gentle hug that calms and comforts them. But remember, make sure to swaddle correctly, leaving room for their little legs and hips to move freely.
