Baby Stroller Tips & Ideas

A stroller lets baby explore the world

Everything in the world is new for babies, and a stroller can allow them to explore it all while safely settled in a comfortable seat under your watchful eye. Strollers can also be incredibly convenient for you, letting you easily transport your little one while you catch up with friends, buy groceries, or even exercise. Choosing the right stroller means you can show your baby the world, and Walmart Canada’s wide range gives you plenty of choice.

5 Common types of baby strollers

1. Standard compact or folding strollers: These strollers are generally the largest on the market. They have four wheels and wide, comfortable seats for your baby, but this can make them difficult to manoeuvre, especially through narrow doorways. Nevertheless, these strollers have plenty of room for storage, so you can carry a large diaper bag as well as some groceries.

Look for a stroller that fits your lifestyle. You can find many different colours and sizes, but most parents want one that folds for easy storage in the car, garage, or home. You might prefer a stroller that fully reclines or converts from pram (or bassinet stroller) to stroller, so your baby can use it from birth until they are ready to walk on their own.

2. Lightweight umbrella strollers: If you are regularly out and about, especially in the summer, an umbrella stroller with built-in canopy or sunshade can be a good way to protect your child’s delicate skin. These strollers unfold and collapse easily – just like an umbrella!

3. Double strollers & multi-passenger strollers: Families with twins or children close in age may appreciate a double stroller that lets you move all your children comfortably at once. Triple, quad, and even six-passenger strollers are available for larger families. These strollers are available with tandem or side-by-side seating. Some strollers also offer the option of adding an additional seat or toddler standing board as your family grows.

4. Jogging strollers: A jogging stroller is perfect for mums and dads who want to exercise with baby. These three-wheeled strollers come with a multitude of features that can protect your child as you run, including shock absorbers, five-point harnesses, fixed front wheels, hand brakes and a wrist harness.

Even parents who don’t run sometimes prefer a jogging stroller. These tend to be narrower than standard strollers, which can make them easy to manoeuvre through crowds in large cities. They are also lightweight and easy to store, though they don’t always have the same storage capabilities of a standard stroller.

If you expect to run with your baby, make sure you pick a stroller with an adjustable handle so that it’s the perfect height for your running stance, then get ready to share your love of healthy living with your child!

5. Travel systems (car seat & stroller combos): Your car seat and stroller are two of the most important items in your baby transport arsenal. Travel systems combine the two into an easy-to-use transport solution that consists of a stroller frame plus a car seat that clicks securely into the frame.

With a travel system, you may never have to wake your baby to transport them from car seat to stroller or back again. You can find these car seat and stroller combos as standard or jogging strollers, so you can choose the option that is right for your lifestyle. Best of all, when you buy one item instead of two, you may end up saving money as well as storage space.

The right stroller accessories

You may think your decisions end with the stroller, but stroller accessories are also important. You can find weather protection that keeps out rain, snow, and sun, as well as baby blankets or bunting bags to keep your baby warm and happy. Extra storage can come through caddies that attach to the handle, or you may want a cup holder for that early morning coffee pick-me-up. Finally, stroller toys keep your little one entertained, leading to an enjoyable stroll for both of you.
