To enjoy safe and comfortable travel for both you and baby, you need to consider the baby's needs at each age and try to choose that ONE stroller that will evolve with the baby as he or she grows. Keep reading our article to discover the features your child will need at each age so that you can choose the best stroller for you and your child.
Stroller Age: 0 – 6 Months
At this age, a baby needs comfort, support and stability. Baby will need to lie flat until about the age of three months. From 3 to 6 months, your baby will be able to sit in a reclining position but will appreciate being able to lie flat for naps. You need to choose a sturdy stroller with an excellent suspension system to avoid the baby getting jostled and eventually injuring his or her brain. Storage space is also important to carry your diaper bag and other essentials. Other features such as a rain cover, mosquito net or a summer mattress are also good to look for when choosing your stroller.

In the first months, you can use the bassinet with a wooden base and easily switch to the toddler seat afterwards.
Stroller Age: 6-12 Months
After six months, your child will be able to sit upright, so the stroller seat is very important. It needs to be well cushioned, offer several reclining positions and provide a lot of support. A good harness is indispensable for safety. It’s also good to have a seat that can face either you or the outside world. Of course, the stroller needs to be lightweight and able to accommodate a car seat. As a new parent, you have probably gained confidence at this point and feel ready to integrate baby into your daily routine. You may therefore perhaps feel the need to invest in a second stroller.

Stroller Age: 18 - 24 Months
At this point, your child will probably start walking. He or she will be more curious, independent and ready to discover the world. Your child will be constantly switching from riding in the stroller to walking, so your best bet is to choose a stroller that folds quickly and easily. The ideal stroller at this age should be ultra-lightweight and allow you to hold your child’s hand when they want to hop out and walk and hold the stroller in the other. A secure 5-point harness is another feature you should look for to keep wiggly toddlers safe during travel.
