Combo strollers, travel systems, umbrella strollers, jogging strollers -- which one should you buy? Before investing hundreds of dollars on the latest souped-up stroller model, consider your baby's safety and your travel needs.
The stroller seat should recline all the way back for your newborn, and adjust back up to a seat as your baby grows.
If you're always on the go, buy a lightweight umbrella stroller. Just make sure it fully reclines.
Need a place to hold all your baby gear? A full-sized stroller will give you more storage room.
The stroller should be solid, with a wide wheel base. When you push lightly on the handles, it shouldn't tip backwards.
Make sure you can open the stroller easily with one hand. You don't want to wrestle with it while holding baby in your other arm.
Walk behind the stroller to make sure the handle is the right height and you're comfortable pushing it.
To keep baby secure, look for a T-shaped buckle that goes around your baby's waist and straps between the legs.
The stroller should have brakes on the back wheels and locking front wheels.
When buying a stroller for two, tandem models (where one baby sits in front of the other) are easier to maneuver than side-by-side.
