A stroller is one of the most important purchases for a baby. Manufacturers offer a wide variety of models, and among the huge assortment, it is not easy for parents to find the best option. It is important to take into account all the nuances so that the purchase fully meets expectations and is convenient for the child. Such a purchase is made for at least 1-2 years, and so that there are no disappointments during operation, but on the contrary, walking with a baby is only a pleasure, we recommend that you study this review and make the right choice. Below are the best strollers for newborns in 2020.
How to choose a stroller for a newborn?
There are basic criteria that are important to consider. When buying, you need to pay attention to the following signs:
- ease of management for parents;
- safety and comfort for the baby;
- reliable operation;
- wheel diameter and wheel material, type of suspension;
- availability of accessories and other options (food basket, reclining backrest, flip handle);
- weight and dimensions of the product;
- reasonable price.
If the first months of a newborn’s life fall in the winter season, it is recommended to choose a model with a spacious warm cradle and large inflatable wheels. It is also important that the hood is sufficiently voluminous and protects from the weather.
If the baby was born in the spring, the stroller should also have a deep hood, material with protection from rain and wind, and a bottom with a ventilation system.
For a summer stroller, you should choose a lightweight model made of natural materials with a ventilation window made of mosquito nets and small wheels. Autumn crumbs are recommended transport with a spacious cradle, large wheels, windproof material and a deep hood.
In addition to the season, it is important to consider the number of storeys. If the apartment is located on the 3rd-5th floor without an elevator, then regardless of the season, you should choose a lightweight option. There are so-called «walking» strollers that can be carried up the stairs.
If you plan to go up to the apartment by elevator, be sure to measure its width before buying. In old houses, it can be quite narrow. And it will be extremely unpleasant if the baby’s new transport simply does not enter it. Similarly, it is advised to measure the doorway at the entrance to the apartment.
For winter and autumn children, it is recommended to additionally purchase a raincoat, and for summer and spring children — a cover for their feet, since at the age of six months the kids will transfer to the walking block. And it is this period that will fall in the fall-winter, when it is important to protect the baby from the wind and the onset of cold weather.
