Pram & Stroller Buying Guide

Common Stroller Myths Busted

Larger wheels won't work well for jogging.
Typically, big wheels are more secure than smaller wheels, and are also easier to push. Most jogging strollers come fitted with 20" wheels. However, nowadays you also find strollers with 16" wheels with shocks fitted on then, which work as perfectly as the 20" ones. Still, the wheels cannot be too small, like say 6", in case you want to use the stroller while jogging.
I can't take my child out when it is raining, or when there are a lot of bugs outside.
Most strollers come with sun guards and bug guards that allow you to keep you child dry during rains, and keep bugs from biting your child. Manufacturers also provide rain shelters that help keep your child warm and comfortable in a cool drizzle. However, it is safe to avoid taking your child outdoors during heavy rains or snow, unless you absolutely have to.
I can use any stroller for jogging.
Jogging requires faster movement of wheels and a firmer grip on the handles, so that you are always in control of the stroller, even while running. Your child should not experience too many jerks and bumps while you are running and should be comfortable during the jog. Standard lightweight strollers might not be equipped with the safety features that are necessary for the specific requirements of jogging. It is therefore better to use a stroller specifically designed for joggers in case you intend to take your child out with you while you work out.
Jogging strollers are very bulky.
While it is true that a completely fitted jogging stroller is bulky, the frames and the wheels are usually removable and easy to fit again. Therefore it is easily portable.
The more costly a stroller is the more features it will have. Cheap stroller won't have the necessary features.
All strollers adhere to a minimum standard and provide all the essential features necessary to ensure the safety of a child. More expensive strollers would have more good-to-have features.
It is enough if I ensure that my child is properly restrained in the stroller. I need not keep an eye on her at all times.
Restraining the child properly is not enough to ensure your child's complete safety, since dangerous parts might still be accessible to her. Your child could put her fingers between the moving parts or sharp edges and hurt herself. Make sure to buy a stroller that has the least number of potentially harmful parts.
You will be able to be in control of the stroller at all times.
No matter how vigilant you are, there could be times when the stroller could roll away from you all of a sudden. You can never be too careful, therefore, ensure that you always have the tether straps in your grip and are holding the handles too. Make sure that the parking brakes are put on without fail.
I can't wait to get started on my workout routine again. I will begin jogging as soon as my baby arrives
Newborns and infants have limited or no control over their head, neck and spine. They need to be seated in strollers that provide them with a proper reclining position and ensure their safety. However, jogging strollers are designed to seat children in an upright position only. So wait till they achieves that milestone, i.e., are able to sit upright, before putting them in a jogging stroller and taking off for a run in the park. - Asia's Largest Online Baby and Kids Store, is India's largest online shop for new mom and baby products, offering top of the line discounts on renowned national & International brands.
