Choosing the right baby carriage and strollers by Robb Stark

By: Robb Stark

Baby strollers come very much in handy for stressed out parents. A baby carriage lets you take your baby with you and keep it close by when you go about your business and daily routine. At the same time the baby stroller helps you stow away those shopping and crockery bags as well as keeps your arms rested.

Buying a new baby carriage or baby stroller tends to always be a difficult and confusing task, as there are so many different models, makes, styles and price ranges to choose from. Here I will sift through some of the more basic types of baby strollers and carriages to help make your decision a little bit easier.

Baby carriages for laying down

As the name obviously suggests, this baby carriage is for the babies that are still very young and spend most of their time laying down sleeping. These carriages are usually for during the first six to eight months but this is of course dependent on individual development of the baby. Most carriages for laying down have a reclining back rest that you can fold up when grandma or others that feel inclined to wants to cuddle and talk to your baby. The pros with this type of baby carriage compared to the others are that the laying area for the baby is usually larger than other types; the cons are that they are usually a bit bulkier and takes up more space in the car.

Dual purpose baby carriage

Innovation feeds development, some people say. This is also true in the world of baby carriages. Lately, a new type of baby carriage has become more and more popular, namely the dual purpose baby carriage. This is not surprising as it is in essence two carriages in one. The frame is designed so shrewdly that you just have to exchange the inset and end up with either a carriage for laying down or sitting up. The pros of a dual purpose baby carriage is that you do not have to invest in a new carriage once the baby wants to travel sitting up, you just have to purchase a new inset. The cons are that many cheaper models can feel somewhat rickety and wonky. In addition, you can not fit as many shopping and grocery bags as in a baby carriage for laying down.
Baby carriages for sitting up

Even here, logic and an understanding of words discloses the purpose of this baby carriage. It is designed for babies of a little older age, perhaps eight months old and upwards depending on individual development, who wants to partake more in everyday life with all that is happening around them. A well designed baby carriage of this type should also have a reclining back rest for when the baby feels sleepy and wants to have a nap. Some people use these types of carriages until the child is around three years of age, while some make the switch to a sulky or similar stroller more early.
