A stroller can be a parent's best friend. But if the wrong stroller is selected it can be a parent's worst enemy! There are several strollers available on online and virtual stores to meet your many needs. Think about how you want to use your baby stroller and select the best one that fits your lifestyle.
The first thing you need to look at is the baby's safety needs. This is the biggest concern. Hence you should check strollers for how stable they are before you buy and remember to check if the stroller will stay standing even if a little weight of a diaper bag is added to it. Furthermore a five point harness is the best option for newborns or those babies who are in the stroller a lot. For short mall trips and such, a three point harness is sufficient. When checking the harness look out for sharp edges and pinching points.

Before you buy a stroller, first take it for a walk in the store. Tall parents would want handles with adjustable heights so that they don't have to bend over to push the stroller. Handles with a foamed cover are better for comfort. See how smooth the wheels are. Try walking really fast and make sure that your legs don't hit the wheels. Check out other features in the prams pushchairs that you are looking at. Does it have a basket underneath to keep your diaper bags? Do you need organization trays, snack and drink holders, toy bars and so on? If so, are those features available? Remember that most of these accessories are also available separately. So, just because a stroller you really like does not have a food tray, don't let that move you away from your choice.
For those parents that are involved in sports or like being outdoors a lot, there are jogging strollers available with big tires and hand grip brakes? Jogging strollers will do well on any possible surface but may not be very easily foldable like other strollers. For parents who don't go out a lot, a simple chicco highchair with wheels to move around in the house is more than enough when deciding on your baby's nursery furniture.
