How to Pick the Right Stroller for Your Baby | Parents

Hi. I’m Jessica Hartshorn from American Baby
Magazine and I’m going to teach you how to speak Stroller Ease.
There’s all kinds of jargon on the stroller world
and I’m gonna help you make sense of some of the vocabulary.
A normal stroller that you’re probably thinking of when you
think of the word stroller is often called the full-sized
stroller. It holds 1 kid. It’s pretty big, rolls down
the street pretty smoothly and is called a full-sized stroller
to distinguish it from an umbrella stroller. An umbrella stroller
is smaller, light-weight, easy to pick up. It fold down
really small, almost like the size of an umbrella. So,
it’s easy to carry. It’s a little bit more bouncy
going down the street, but it’s for an older child
and when you really just need a stroller that’s easy
to get around with. The full-sized stroller is also sometimes
called a single stroller. A double stroller holds 2 children,
either side by side or front to back. Often, a
stroller and a car seat are sold together and it’s
called a travel system. Buying a travel system can save
you about a $100 versus what you’d spend buying the
stroller and the car seat separately. So, a travel system
is definitely a great bargain and the advantage is the
car seat and stroller work together. So, when you have
a young baby who sleeps a lot in their car seat, you can just take them out of the- the
car seat out of your car and snap it right on top of the stroller. And then, later, when
they’re older, you can leave the car seat in the car
and just use the stroller portion. Some people call any
3-wheeled stroller a jogging stroller, but a true jogging stroller
has this big air-filled tires which make it easy to
roll down the street and that front wheel will lock
in place straight so you can go fast. And a
true jogging stroller will also have a safety strap in
the back so you can keep a hold of the stroller. You’ll see plenty of regular strollers,
a full-sized stroller that only have 3 wheels and that gives some
nice maneuverability. Here’s some other terms that
apply to any stronger. The canopy is this big shade that goes over
the baby. Sometimes, canopies go out all the way
for more shade and they should pull back a little bit
if you need to check on the baby. You’re gonna
wanna look at the recline feature of any stroller
that you use because your baby’s gonna wanna nap in
there and you wanna see how easily it goes down the
back up. You also wanna check out the basket. That’s
gonna hold all your stuff when you’re out running
errands. Some strollers have a snack tray or a grab bar
in the front. That makes it really nice for feeding
your toddler or attaching toys, but it does affect
the fold of the stroller. So, you’ll see that some
strollers have nothing in the front just so that they can
fold up nice and tight. And that’s how you speak
Stroller Ease.


  1. Very nice video, explained it clearly. After a research i can through this guide hope this helps too for selecting best stroller.

  2. Thank you so much for this video
    I already bought a umbrella stroller for my kid, from here: if you are looking for one then don't miss this article.

  3. It concerns me that every stroller is facing outward. Has this magazine investigated studies on healthy attachment and the importance of a baby or toddler facing their parent, serve and return, eye contact, reading parents responses and so on for psychological and language development?

  4. good job …….
