Moms will find a great variety of strollers in the market and each of them has its own characteristics and functions. This Guide will facilitate the understanding and help parents to find the best options for their needs and budget. To make an easier comprehension, we divided the strollers into categories, you can see more details below
Lightweight strollers, practical and easy to transport. The majority of these stroller cannot be used for newborns since they don't adapt the baby seat. They are not really comfortable and many models don't recline enough for the child to sleep. Some brands have better quality than others and this is relatively connected to the durability of the product. There are strollers starting from $30.00, however, those that are less than $120.00, usually have an inferior quality.
Car Seat Adapting
Have a more reinforced structure that allows them to adapt a car seat and therefore be used by newborns, like the Maxi-Cosi Kaia.
With Seat Reclining
Some simple umbrella models do allow seat reclining, providing more comfort for the baby like the Quinny Zapp Xtra Stroller.
Those are strollers for twins, siblings or two kids in different ages. It's important to highlight that not all of the double strollers models can be used for twins. Some of them accept only one car seat and therefore, indicated only for children in different ages. To be considered a stroller for twins, it must be able to adapt two car seats and/or bassinets.
Strollers with in-line seats. They make locomotion easier due to its width, like the Baby Jogger City Select Double Stroller.
Holds two car seats or bassinets. In some countries, the width of the wheels surpasses the standard door sizes. To avoid this issue, choose the Mountain Buggy Duet Strolle.
For children in different ages, some models have a platform for the older child to sit or stand on it, like the Graco Modes Duo Stroller.
These are four wheels strollers with a traditional design that do not reverse the seat. They have a fixed seat and normally allow car seat adaption. Some models are larger when closed and others are lighter. Below we have standards models like the Mamas & Papas Armadillo, Peg Perego Booklet and Baby Jogger City Mini Zip.
This is an option fairly sought once it allows the mother to turn the stroller seat around and have the child facing her. This feature is worth being highlighted since mothers can monitor their babies easily. There're reversible options with 4 wheels or 3 wheels. Below are some reversible models, like the Stokke Crusi, Britax B-Ready and Quinny Buzz Xtra.
Not all 3 wheels strollers and air tires can be used to jog. It's necessary to check the manufacturer's guidance first. The characteristics of these are a wheel suspension system, a brake on the rear wheels activated by the handle for better speed control on rough terrains, air tires, locks on the front wheel and a strap to hold the conductors hand on the stroller. We separated some examples below like the Baby Jogger Summit X3, Thule Urban Glide Jogging and BOB Revolution Pro Jogging.
Full-size strollers with a compatible infant car seat that can be clipped into the stroller. Very handy when the baby sleeps in the car and you can easily put him in the stroller without any disturbs. Once the baby outgrows the car seat, you can keep using the stroller for a long time. Below we have the Maxi-Cosi Adorra Travel System, Baby Jogger City Mini GT Travel System and the Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System.
