So, what you need to pay attention to. Type of folding: “canes” (they are also “umbrellas”) and “buggy”. The former occupy less space and fold more easily, but often lack the advantages of the latter.
Folded “buggy” is no longer a light cane, but a flat quadrilateral, but in the unfolded form they are more comfortable for a child, as they have a reliable frame for the back, support for legs, and also a hood. For trips in the car, you can buy a buggy stroller, while a walking stick is more suitable for traveling by public transport.
The material from which the frame of the stroller is made must be both durable and light. The aluminum frame is certainly better than plastic, but it is not as strong.
Weight. Travel strollers are otherwise called “lightweight” because they weigh an average of 5 kg.
Versatility. An expensive model should ideally serve a baby from birth to 3 years.
In order for such a stroller to carry a newborn, a special liner must be provided for it – a kind of “nest” for the infant. The universal stroller will take on its “chassis” and car seat.
The safety of a model is determined by its stability (the lighter the model, the easier it is to turn it over), the presence of the braking system, the reliability of the seat belt (the best belt is a five-point belt that holds the baby in place and at the same time not hampering his movements), and which the child could stick a finger.
Wheels can be big and small (the first will overcome off-road, but the wheelchair will not be easy), single or double (double safer, but do not fit on ramps in underground passages), floating – rotating or fixed (the first give the wheelchair maneuverability on asphalt , but stuck on the ground, and therefore must have a lock). Pay attention to the brake system: a plastic stopper on one wheel easily fails.
The handle of the stroller may resemble the handle of an umbrella or be solid, fixed length or adjustable to the height of the parents, flipped over or fixed (in the first case, you can carry a little face to yourself or forward).
The comfort of the stroller affects not only the mood of the baby, but also its health. Ideally, the seat should be supported by the frame, and the leg support should be adjusted depending on the height of the child.
The back of the seat should have several positions: sitting and lying down – necessarily.
Accessories. A hood from rain and wind, a sun shade, a cover on legs, a net for toys and products, a bag for mother are important parts that you should also pay attention to when choosing a stroller.
