Baby travel systems:what to choose

Baby News, Baby Tips Add comments

73552602.jpgNowadays parents get more and more ways of baby transportation: buggies, strollers and travel systems.

Stroller manufacturers and designers joined together and create esclusive collections for stylish moms.

Although travel systems may seem expensive, buying a travel system can be an economical way of buying both a pushchair and separate car seat.

You receive following advantages while buying a travel system:

- you can move the baby from car to pushchair without waking her up

- convenient way of buying pushchair, car seat and carrycot all in one go

- baby will be facing you in the pushchair

However, it’s important to try and remember not to keep your baby in her car seat for long periods at time. Young babies need to be able to lie flat and stretch and move to develop properly. It’s also essential to make sure that the car seat in the travel system fits your car perfectly. If it doesn’t, you’d be better off buying a pushchair and separate car seat.

Instead of the traditional four-wheeled stroller, some travel systems include the three-wheeled jogging stroller. Although large front wheels and pneumatic tires offer a smoother ride for baby as you exercise, before you purchase, consider that the larger tires make the jogging strollers less maneuverable while shopping in tight-aisled stores.

If you don’t want to buy a full size stroller and don’t want to carry the infant car seat, consider buying a universal stroller frame that snaps to the car seat bottom, letting you wheel baby around without taking the little one out of the car seat. Stroller frames are inexpensive, and let you decide on a full-size stroller later when you have a better idea of how you’ll use it.

What you really need is an appropriate car seat for your baby, but a stroller and infant carrier car seat combination isn’t required. You may want to buy a car seat now and decide on a separate stroller or baby carrier later.

Before you buy a baby travel system, consider how you will use the travel system stroller and car seat to be sure you’re buying a travel system that works for you and your new baby.
