Strolling For Baby’s First Stroller

Strolling For Baby’s First Stroller

Why A Stroller?

Soon after baby becomes animated, alert and minimally mobile, it’s time to consider a stroller. A baby pram or carriage is still great for those restless infants who love to sleep while Mom or Dad pushes the carriage in the great outdoors. Once baby’s spine is strong enough, a stroller is ideal for introducing the wide world of infancy and early “toddlerhood”.

Strollers For Convenience

Strollers function as their name implies to “stroll” along in places where a larger baby vehicle might be cumbersome. Strollers should be “weight-adaptable” to support a baby through to the threshold of toddlership. The most advantageous feature of a baby stroller is the convenience of its mobility. A baby stroller goes where no baby carriage or pram has gone before. In small doorways, folded to a compact size that fits into the back seat of a car, a closet or in the checkout aisle at the grocery store. It doesn’t get better than that for portability. Of course you may have to rethink getting about if you need a double or triple stroller.

Modern Baby Strollers

Gone are the old clunker baby strollers with heavy stainless steel bars and even heavier seats and overstuffed materials. Now, even a sturdy toddler can lift his own stroller or, at the very least, be able to push it to and fro. With Mom or Dad at the main controls, the “not yet completely” mobile toddler can get a bit of exercise at the back of this lightweight modern marvel. Then when those little legs grow weary, it’s just a matter of “Ride, Baby, Ride”. This way, baby gets to see what’s going on while Mom or Dad get a much deserved rest pushing the stroller and doing the multitude of other multi-tasking things moms and dads seem so adept at doing.

Baby Strollers For Every Baby

Just like Mom and Dad eye that adorable Beamer, baby deserves a bit of style in a stroller too. Strollers should be safe from tipping, have sturdy wheels and a strong, comfortable frame. Baby strollers needn’t be bland. They are available in lots of bright, eye-catching color. That’s an important feature for toddlers. With use, baby becomes familiar with colors and begins to identify the stroller as his or her “personal vehicle”, even if it isn’t quite a Beamer. Some baby strollers have rubber coated grips on the handles that make for a more secure stroller experience for Mom, Dad and baby. On very sunny days, add the “surrey” top and it protects baby from sunburn.

Strollers are for Strolling

It’s hard to imagine that a baby stroller serves only the purpose of mobile convenience without some preponderance for a peaceful stroll in the park or on a boardwalk. After all, “strolling” with baby is the best part of the experience.
