what to look for in a stroller?

Whether out shopping for groceries, walking through the park, or heading downtown on the subway, there is a stroller to help you tackle your daily routine with baby safely along for the ride. What stroller is best for you? With so many types and features to choose from, answer the basics first: Who will be using it (an infant, a toddler, one child or more)? Who will be pushing it? How often will it be used? Where will it be stored? What price range is doable? There's a stroller to fit every lifestyle, and we break it down so you can make an easier, informed decision.

Look for these features that ensure baby's comfort and your convenience:

infant carriers

Chances are, you've seen a baby carrier in action. New moms and dads toting their little ones everywhere – parks, malls, trails, grocery stores – doing everyday stuff, hands-free with ease. These amazing carriers keep your precious cargo comfy, close and safe wherever you go. Check out the different types, then add one to your registry!

classic style
Lets your infant face in for
comfort and later outwards to
explore the world.

soft structure
Carry baby face in, on hip or backpack. Lumbar support helps relieve shoulder pressure.

wraps
Fabric with ideal one-way stretch and wrap uses entire back and shoulders to evenly distribute weight.

frame carriers
Framed, padded structure seats baby and evenly distributes the weight to reduce risk of back strain. For older babies with neck control.

slings
Adjustable over-the-shoulder sling cradles your infant in a comfy pouch style. Babies love the swaddling, and can nurse at the same time.
