When it comes to baby mobility, most parents will be looking for satisfactory answers to these questions;
Granted, these are important questions, but they limit the stroller criteria around the needs of the parent. None of these questions take the child into consideration when making a stroller purchase. So, are we really that selfish?
The answer is no. It is typical that we focus any considerable purchase on immediate benefits, and these criteria are important as parents also need to enjoy their strolling experience.
Solutions for baby strollers that combine these parent-centered benefits with child-centered benefits do exist.
What questions should I ask when purchasing a foldable stroller?
- Does it promote interaction with their surroundings?
- Does it help develop motor skills?
- How close to the ground they sit?
- What do they learn while riding?
Raising these queries can help you sort the products that are focused solely on parent comfort, from products that combine child development benefits with parent comfort (like a lightweight stroller that also has interactive elements)

Does a kids stroller effect early childhood and brain development?
Children are born ready to learn and have many skills to acquire over many years. They depend on all their caregivers to aid in developing the right skills to lead healthy and successful lives. How the brain grows is strongly affected by the child’s experiences, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. With children spending so much of their time in strollers, don’t we want to make sure that we are doing everything within our power to ensure we are buying them the best baby stroller?
