Picking a stroller


Picking a stroller is really one of the things where you have to sit down and figure out; what am I going to use this stroller for? Maybe you don't even know, if it's a newborn. But if you don't have sidewalks outside of your house, or you are on a hill, or you are always going to be going somewhere with the baby because you don't live in a neighborhood; then buying one of those beautiful, fancy strollers that everyone oohs and aahs about isn't the best for getting in and out of the car. You are going to be one of those people who has a baby in your hand, or have a car seat in your hand, and you are going to have a stroller that you are going to need one hand to open. Those strollers, for the most part, are very complicated to open and shut. You need something that's one handed, single handed, open and shut; and not the bassinet that you are pushing down the street. They are really large. They are hard to get in and out of the car, so while they are beautiful and really cool looking, they may not work for you. If you are in a neighborhood where you walk a lot, and you are not going to fold and unfold all the time and it's really for the neighborhood, those bigger strollers work. You need to find out what you really need it for. Everybody makes mistakes. I think I ended up with eight strollers after three children, so it happens.
