Strollers are an important part of babies’ accessories from the very age of six months or until the child learns walking, or by the time he/she reaches 3-4 years of age.
Many parents use jogging strollers up to the time their child reaches 7-8 years if they are going out for a long time or if they are going to walk for a long distance.
While the markets are full of various types of strollers, it becomes hard to decide which one will suite to the family especially if you are buying a baby jogger stroller with car seat.
The stroller should be bought after considering the place you are living in, where you will take the stroller or how far you want to go with the stroller.
If you are living in far off areas from city or in a rural area with car-oriented style, then you must go for a stroller that is easy to fix with the car seat and can be folded easily.
If you are buying a stroller only to go far off places, then you probably can select a baby jogger stroller with car seat.
For active parents, who like to go long distances and want to their baby to accompany them when hiking or running, then rugged jogging strollers that can be snapped with car seat are a better option.
Stroller Frames for Car Seat
Most of the baby strollers for car seats are light weight and are designed to be adjusted with particular types of baby seats. In these types of strollers you have to remove the baby car seat from the base of the car, fix it into the stroller frame and you are ready for jogging.
It is actually very convenient when you take out the stroller while your baby is sleeping in the seat. The other features of these frames are that they are easy to fold to keep in the car trunk and do not take much space as well.
The only thing with car seat strollers is that they can’t be used once your baby grows up. For those who frequently go outdoors, these strollers are real boon and worth the money.
Things to Look for Before Buying
The stroller frame for car seat should be locked firmly with the seat with easy to use mechanism. Thoroughly examine if the frame is having any sharp edges which can hurt the baby.
Check the buckles that they are easy to unfasten from the car seat and safe for the baby at the same time. It should be easy to push the stroller with one hand while going in the straight line or taking turn. The front and back wheels should be able to swivel for better maneuverability.
Brakes are another essential part of stroller to check. They should be easy to control even with open-toed shoes. Wheels of the stroller should get locked immediately after pressing the brake. Some strollers come with front and back wheel brakes and it depends upon your preference which suit you better.
