Strollers are considered to be every parent’s best friend when it comes to keeping your baby safe and comfortable. With the popularity of strollers growing every day, baby shops and other local retail stores have seen parents flocking with excitement to try and choose the best units that will suit their needs.
Why are strollers becoming so popular nowadays and what’s making them so special as compared to carrying your child with a baby carrier? Although there are varying opinions regarding this fact, let me say that strollers play a vital role in ensuring that you have fun while jogging or strolling outdoors whether in the shopping mall or across the neighborhood.
When shopping for a baby stroller, it’s good to understand that there are different types of strollers available in the market. Just to mention a few, there are lightweight strollers, standard strollers, jogging strollers and travel system strollers.
With all these stroller models being present in the market, of course it will be overwhelming for any enthusiast parent to choose the perfect stroller for his baby.
To relieve you from all these hassles, we have opted to compare two of the most popular and highly bought stroller models in the market to give you an explicit understanding before making your purchase. These strollers include Jogging Strollers and Travel System Strollers.
Jogging strollers are the first class of strollers that are specifically designed for active parents who enjoy everyday strolling. These strollers are sportier and are intended for parents who enjoy jogging/running to maintain their shape.
Jogging strollers are light, compact and come with specific features which include; a storage compartment below the seat, a child/parent tray to keep your drinks and maybe a pair of in-built speakers to keep you captivated when strolling. One thing you need to keep in mind though is that jogging strollers are not recommended for infants below 6 months.
The next type of strollers we’re going to compare are travel system strollers. Also known as regular strollers, these models usually come with an adjustable handlebar for tall or short parents, a storage compartment, a large canopy and a light weight that makes it easier for you to fold or unfold.
Travel system strollers are designed for parents who enjoy strolling down the street, around the park or inside the shopping mall. These strollers have small compact tires for stability and come with a dedicated infant car seat to make it easier for you to transfer your baby from the car to the stroller or vice-versa without any problems.
Travel system strollers come with a child/parent tray where one can keep some snacks or drinks to eat/drink while strolling. At the back of the seat, there is a parent storage area where parents can store their phones, iPods, wallets or car keys for easy access. The seats of such strollers come with multiple reclining capabilities to boost your child’s comfort when strolling.
Now that you have some basic ideas of what you should look for when buying a stroller, I would like to mention some key features which are important to remember.
First, check the size of the canopy and whether it’s removable or not, whether the stroller has a 5-point harness, the price and finally some pros and cons. With that being said, I believe that you’ll be able to find the best stroller for your baby depending on your preference.
