If you are going on holiday, you may want to consider buying a travel stroller especially for this trip. There are many things to think about before purchasing, especially if you are buying online and not visiting a shop to try these out. Here are some things that you should consider before buying a travel stroller.
Lightweight and Compact
The best travel strollers are lightweight and easy to fold and pack. They should be compact enough to fit in the overhead locker of a plane if you are taking a flight and want to take it on board with you. Make sure it fits in the boot of your car along with all the luggage you might need for your holiday.
Durable and Sturdy
Travel strollers should be able to withstand the rigours of travel and rough terrain. Don’t pick something flimsy as your little one may not be comfortable in this and it will not be easy to push.
Your baby should be comfortable and safe while travelling in the stroller. Look for strollers with good suspension, adjustable seats, and a five-point harness.
Many travel strollers have small baskets as they are so compact. You need to consider whether a small basket will work for you once you reach your destination. Will there be enough room to store everything you need for a day out?
Consider the size of the canopy on your travel stroller. Is it large enough to protect your little one from the sunshine? If not, you might want to use something like Snoozeshade to give your child more protection.
Easy to Manoeuvre
A good travel stroller should be easy to push and steer, especially if you are travelling alone with your baby. Look for strollers with swivel wheels and good manoeuvrability.
Travel strollers come in a range of prices. Consider your budget and choose a stroller that fits your needs and budget.
