Having gone through 3 kids, and a couple of strollers, I now have my own sets of stringent requirements when it comes to picking a stroller. It is important to buy a stroller that fits into your lifestyle requirements.
I am a Stay at Home Mom. And due to Kitson’s hectic traveling schedules, I am often left to juggle 3 kids on my own. We do not drive, and depend largely on public transportation such as Mrts and Buses.
In my personal opinion, a good stroller should be;
1. Sturdy & Good Weight
When shopping for a stroller, I would suggest that you do your most outrages crash car dummy tests. Shake it, Push it to see just how much it takes to tip it over. In order for a stroller to be sturdy, it must not be overly light weight. Neither should it be so heavy that it reminds you of your weights in the gym.
2. 5 Point Safety Harness
A lap belt is never enough for a moving stroller. Once a baby master the skills of flipping, cruising, crawling and walking. He/She will make every attempt to STAND on the stroller. A 5 point safety harness will discourage the determined baby.
3. One Hand Operation
If 1 hand is carrying the baby, I only have the other to open and recline the stroller!
4. Fully Canopy Shade
There are 2 reasons why I insist on a full canopy shade.
Firstly, the weather in Singapore is just plain ridiculous. It is either scotching hot or pouring wet. A full canopy shade helps shield the baby from such harsh elements.
Secondly, I prefer my baby to have personal space when he is napping. So no kapoh aunties can tell me he is too hot, too cold, or perhaps even worst, attempt to touch him and wake him up!!!
5. Forward Facing
I am sure the outside world is much more exciting for a baby on a moving stroller. But, an option of having forward facing allow the parents to interact with the baby. I can still remember Sophia’s infectious giggles whenever I sing The wheels on the pram goes bum-pa-dee-bum-bump.
A BIG Shopping Basket beneath the stroller would be an additional Bonus!!
