When to use a stroller?
From the moment your child can sit up without support, you can put the stroller into use. The stroller takes up less space than the pram, so it's great to take with you to the shops, in the car or on a trip.
- The stroller is used at the earliest when the child is 7-8 months
- A stroller is great for quick trips where your child doesn't necessarily need to sleep.
Perfect to take on the road
Most children love to sit up in their carriage and watch the world go by as you walk around the city. The stroller is great for this because it has a large backrest that can be laid down if baby needs a nap.
When to use a pushchair depends on where you live and whether the pushchair is used for walks in the garden. Lots of families like to have a big pushchair at home for daytime walks and then a smaller pushchair that's super easy to carry around when you're going out.
A stroller is different from a pushchair because it folds up and doesn't take up much space.
Questions and answers about pushchairs
If you're about to take the stroller into use, you'll have some questions you're looking for answers to. See if you find the answer below
When to use a stroller?
Most often when baby is big enough to sit up on his own and no longer needs to sleep several times a day but wants to look and observe the world more. Read when can baby sit in the pushchair.
Can the stroller stay in the car?
It depends on both the car and the stroller, as there are large strollers and small cars. However, as a general rule, you can fit a pushchair in your car, whatever the size of your car. It's just a matter of finding the right pushchair.
Which stroller is best?
It all depends on your needs and how much you want to pay for the stroller. The most expensive pushchairs are not always the best as they are often heavier and more expensive. On the other hand, they have plenty of comfort and are suitable for long trips.
Think about whether the stroller should be able to turn backwards so your child is facing you, or whether it should be super easy to carry in the car. You can also consider a sibling stroller.
Can my baby sleep in the stroller?
Yes, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the golden nugget not being allowed to close its little eyes if it gets tired. However, it's a good idea to make sure that the back can lie down, as this is more ergonomic for the little one's back, and it's also easier to create some peace and shade around the sleeping child.
When to switch to a pushchair?
This question is particularly relevant if you have one of the smart prams where you can replace the pushchair part with a stroller part. Most people switch to a pushchair when their child is around one year old. It also depends a bit on whether your child has outgrown the pram. Or your child may stop sleeping in the pushchair altogether, in which case you might as well switch to the smart pushchair as soon as baby can sit up on his own.
