Car seats and strollers are two of the most important items you will use in baby’s early years.
There are several different types of car seats out there, and worth researching to figure out the best options for you and your child.
We have the Britax B-Agile travel system and love it! The car seat pops right out of the car and into the stroller, thus not waking a sleeping baby by having to get him/her out of the seat.
Strollers are a life saver when it comes to the various activities we do as parents every day – walking around, running, shopping, you name it.
Plus, it’s a great way to transport baby when lugging around the car seat gets heavy FAST.
We’ve listed out the types of car seats and strollers below where we’ve scoured and summarized reviews, in addition to a list of items to think about before purchasing.
For both car seats and strollers, I’d recommend going to a store like Buy Buy Baby or Babies ‘R’ Us and trying them out in person.
Even if you don’t have a baby yet, carry the car seat around on your arm. Is it super heavy already? Does it the feel of it bother your arm?
For the stroller, open it and close it and move it around right there in the store. Is it easy to do? Can you do it one-handed if you need to? Are you planning to run with it at all, or just walk? Will you be taking it on trails, or mainly roads and sidewalks?
All of the above are great questions to ask as you begin your discovery before purchasing a car seat or stroller.
