Stroller Basics

Used from birth up through the early childhood years, a stroller is one of the most frequently used pieces of baby gear, so it’s important to find one that’s right for you. Most strollers fall into four general categories.

Lightweight Stroller

Lightweight Strollers

Blink Umbrella Stroller

Sometimes referred to as umbrella strollers, lightweight strollers generally weigh less than 20 pounds, fold compactly, and are portable, making them ideal for travelling or quick trips to the store. Because lightweight strollers generally have less padding, limited storage options, and fewer seat adjustment positions, some parents find that they are not ideal for longer excursions. Some lightweight strollers are only appropriate for children 6 months or older; however, if allowed by the manufacturer, or if the stroller is capable of forming a travel system with an infant car seat, it may be suitable for small infants as well.


Full-Size Stroller

Full-Size Strollers

Full-size strollers are larger and usually heavier than lightweight strollers, and typically come equipped with more features.Chaperone Full-Size Stroller Offering large storage compartments, adjustable padded seats, smoother suspension, and plenty of accessories, it’s no wonder full-size strollers are a popular choice for many parents! As with lightweight strollers, full-size strollers can only be used from birth if stated by the manufacturer, or if the stroller is compatible with an infant car seat.


   

Travel System Strollers

Chaperone Travel System

Travel system strollers are compatible with an infant car seat. This means that you can take the car seat out of your car and easily attach it to the stroller, without removing your child from the car seat. Like full-size strollers, travel system strollers tend to be larger and heavier than lightweight strollers, but they also come equipped with an abundance of features. Some travel system strollers feature a modular design; this allows you to remove the stroller seat from the frame (or chassis) while using the infant car seat with the stroller, making the travel system lighter and less bulky. Travel system strollers can be used with children from birth when used with a compatible infant car seat, and can be used without the car seat as allowed by the manufacturer.


Double Stroller

Double and Triple Strollers

Double and triple strollers accommodate more than one child and come in two styles - side-by-side or in-line/tandem. With a side-by-side stroller, the child seats are positioned next to each other, and with an in-line/tandem stroller, the seats are arranged in a row, one behind the other. B-READY Modular StrollerBecause of their higher capacity, double and triple strollers can be heavy and bulky; however, for families with multiple children, a double or triple stroller may be more convenient than using separate strollers for each child. Double and triple strollers generally have comfort and convenience features similar to full-size strollers, and are sometimes compatible with one or more infant car seats.
