Choosing the Ideal Baby Pushchairs

By Dexter Rose

Don't rely on just anybody to sell you onto the best baby pushchair, instead follow a proven process to pick one. Safety is always our main concern but you need to take the feel of the materials and the smoothness of the ride into consideration too. The bad news is that most of the pushchairs (also called strollers) on the market today meet these criteria. You can erase the image of the pushchair you rode in because they don't exist anymore.

When it's time to choose a baby pushchair or stroller, remember that the type of wheels on it are important. You can have fixed or swivel wheels. Strollers with fixed wheels are usually cheaper but they are harder to maneuver than the pushchairs with swivel wheels. The wheels can be compared to those on the carts in grocery stores. Think about how you'd move around if those wheels didn't swivel. Do you think you'd be able to steer the cart very easily? Strollers and pushchairs have the same principle behind steering and control. Where possible, you should consider choosing one that offers you maximum maneuverability.

Read up on each of the strollers that you are thinking of buying and find out what baby experts have to say about them. A baby stroller is one of the simpler consumer products to evaluate and review, they can be easily rated in terms of safety, comfort, quality of ride, and any other category. Sooner or later, you may come across a pushchair that has a large number of high-rated reviews, this is a good sign and should be considered in your final decision. If any is the most important, it has to be the brakes. This is one of the most important things you should consider when you are buying a stroller or pushchair. There have been many instances when a baby has became a victim to a pushchair with faulty brakes that allowed the stroller to get away from the parent. You also want the brakes on your pushchair to be easy to operate. There is no sense having a braking system that will discourage you from using them. The brakes is one of the main deciding factors so either test them out or find out how previous buyers rate them.

Newborns sleep a lot, so you may want to consider getting a pushchair that accommodates this. Getting a pushchair that is a bassinet on wheels is an option. This might seem cumbersome, but if your infant is not yet ready for sitting up, and you find yourself needing to travel during naptimes, this type of stroller and pushchair can be a life saver. You might even consider simply letting your infant sleep in it during the day for naptimes-that way you can move him or her around as you need to without having to worry about the transition from sleeping area to pushchair waking your little one up!

You need to consider the pushchair's weight. So, how is the weight of a stroller important to your buying decision? You need a pushchair of adequate weight but not to heavy. At times, babies can stir around, kick, shift, and move a lot, causing a stroller to tip over, a heavier stroller will prevent this from happening. Don't forget who's going to be pushing this thing around though, so be sure that is isn't so heavy that you won't be able to walk comfortably with it. So, when shopping for a heavy stroller, always remember that it does not have to be so heavy that it prevents you from using it. If only one kind pushchair was right for everyone then there would only be that one to choose from. You might need one that is better suited for long walks, while another parent needs something that is good for car owners. You can easily come up with your list of desired options by asking yourself what will make our lives easier. With a short checklist and a little research you can make a very smart purchase.
