Boarded, let's go: how to choose a summer transport for your child

The very first children’s transport is a stroller for the baby. But when he grows up and learns to walk, other options will become relevant. Wheelchairs of cars with a handle, tricycles with a handle are the very first options of transport for children, in which parents can insure it.

Pedal cars and balancing bicycles are very popular with active children, and modern children’s electric cars are almost indistinguishable in appearance from real cars, which makes kids really excited.

So, where to start, what transport (besides the stroller) to choose for the crumbs, who only learned to walk? What to offer a child older?

How to treat a preschooler this summer? We will help you understand the variety and choose the transport that is suitable for your child by age, temperament and health.

From six months in the life of the kid begins the “era of big journeys” – the child tries to crawl. And every route has a goal.

And also, he tries to sit down, leaning – attention – on one hand! And this is a serious step towards mastering the vertical position. At the age of 7 months, the baby, as a rule, already confidently sits down.

And at 8 months, he no longer just sits, but he can even change from one place to another. He can even stand, holding on to something strong, the sense of balance still brings. By the year, as a rule, the child is already confidently standing, sitting, crawling, walking, pushing off with his feet.

So, it is time to change from the stroller to the new transport. Of course, not yet in a private car, and not even on a bicycle (since it is still difficult for the kid to pedal, and coordination of movements is still not perfect), but pushkars, runners, gurneys and various transformers will be most welcome.

Riding the horse a reliable solid gurney, the baby will push off with feet from the floor, and move to where it pleases. Of course, under your supervision. If the crumbs just want to go, then he will again come to the rescue machine-wheelchair.

Most models are equipped with a high back. So it will be convenient for the child to hold on to it with both handles, to go back and push the car in front of you.

It stimulates children to walk independently, strengthens the muscles of the arms and legs, develops large motor skills and coordination in space. Wheelchairs can be used not only in the street, but also at home.

Thus, the toy will be in demand not only in spring or summer, but also in cold winter evenings.

The age from one to three years in psychology is called “walking childhood.” When a child discovers the opportunity to move independently in space independently, a new life begins for him, a world opens with unlimited perspectives. By this time, the child easily masters the motor skills: running, jumping, changing direction, turning, walking backwards, climbing stairs, etc. The child opens up amazing possibilities of his own body.

It is necessary to support the call of nature and give the kid freedom of action.

So, at this age it is time to learn tricycles and scooters. But, before you go shopping, you should show the baby to the orthopedic surgeon and consult if the crumbs have deformities of the feet.

As a rule, the deformation is of two types – X – shaped (in the form of the letter “X”) and O-shaped (in the form of the letter “O”, the knees are deflected outward). X-shaped (valgus) deformity of the legs appears after the child stands on its feet and begins to walk.

It is characterized by the fact that the distance between the inner ankles with the knees pressed to each other is more than 5 cm. The causes of this curvature are heredity, when one of the parents has this deformation; lack of vitamin D (rickets); overweight child; but the most common cause is the weakness of the muscular-ligamentous apparatus of the lower limbs.

Major changes occur in the knee joint. Ligaments that strengthen the joint, stretch, especially on the inside. When this occurs, the flat-valgus deformity of the feet with the deviation of the heel outwards, develops flat feet.

The kid may complain of pain in the legs, ask for pens, prefers to stroller to walk. With this diagnosis, in addition to the course of massage, wearing special shoes, insoles and other things, doctors also recommend teaching the child to ride a bicycle. Which, by the way, is absolutely not recommended if the child was diagnosed with O – shaped (varus) deformity of the lower extremities.

O-shaped legs are characterized by when a standing child with closed feet has a distance between the knee joints. The causes of the o-shaped curvature of the legs are the same as that of the x-shaped deformation of the legs. It is recommended that the baby walk with bare feet on a flat surface.

And also in this case the scooter will be preferable. But even then, doctors do not recommend small children (even healthy ones) to ride it for more than 30-40 minutes a day.

And one more thing, for the time being it is not necessary to overestimate the possibilities of the child and go with him on a bicycle trip far from home. Unless, of course, you do not want to then carry the child and the bicycle to your home by yourself.

So the main mode of transport for long walks is still the stroller.

Children at the age of 3 are very mobile, they run, jump, jump from a small height, catch a ball, climb ladders, roll down a hill, etc. The child has more complicated hand movements, his coordination of movements is well developed. Despite the fact that the main mode of transport for children of this age are three- and four-wheeled bicycles, as well as three-and two-wheeled scooters, the child may already begin to explore new horizons – for example, learn to ride a two-wheeled bicycle or make first trips on a personal electric car.

Another good news – even going on a long walk, now you can safely leave the pram at home. Instead, take your bicycle or scooter with you. To keep up with the baby.

Surely he will be delighted with such an idea! And yet, do not forget about caution. Yes, the baby is now active, but still can not control the situation, so the responsibility for the safe movement of the child rests entirely with the parents.

Do not forget about it!
