How To Pick a Baby Stroller

Finding the right stroller can be difficult - read this article to find the best one for you.


When it comes to choosing a baby stroller, there’s so many options, sizes, designs, and brands to choose from. So, how do you know which stroller is right for you and your baby? That’s a difficult question, however, a question we intend to answer in this short article.


When looking for a baby stroller for travel, you should consider:

  • How easy is it to fold the stroller?
  • How much storage does the stroller have?
  • What is the weight of the stroller?
  • Are the handlebars high and comfortable enough?


We will now break these down one by one.

How easy is it to fold the stroller?

When choosing a baby stroller for travel, expect to be folding the stroller constantly - getting on and off of buses, in and out of cars, and compacting the stroller up to put inside the house.


That’s a lot of folding - ensure it’s easy to do.

How much storage does the stroller have?

The more storage the better, some strollers even have space to hold a car seat. If out on many walks, hikes, or perhaps even adventures, you want as much storage as you can get, somewhere to keep those nappies, a bottle of water, extra baby milk, and any other essentials.

What is the weight of the stroller?

When shopping, navigating tight isles, or even on a hike, the lighter your stroller the better. This allows you to maneuver with ease, performing a full 180-degree turn to pick up the dropped or perhaps thrown dummy, if required.


You want a stroller with a good size to weight ratio, plenty of storage, yet freedom to navigate those tight shop isles without the fear of knocking something over.

Are the handlebars high enough and comfortable enough?

Finally, the comfort and height of the handlebars are often overlooked. If the handlebars are either too high or too low, you will either kick the back of the stroller or stoop over it. Preferably, find ones that adjust, or ones that fit your height and gait.


We’ve gathered together two strollers that fulfill our criterion, you can find these below:

Contours Bitsy elite lightweight stroller

Great video monitor

The Bebcare Motion is really easy to use and install. I’m not technical and don’t find this monitor to be hard to use at all. It’s great.

Best battery life on an infant monitor

Having gone through 3 other baby monitors, this Bebcare Hear one has the best best battery life. The little mother unit can easily operate on its rechargeable battery for multiple days at a time. It makes our lives easier as a parent with newborn twins.

Amazing video of the baby

Super clear image quality. Love seeing my baby on my phone. It's great as a nanny monitor.

One of the BEST smart baby monitors

The video on the Bebcare app is superb. Easily one of the best quality out there for a smart wifi monitor. I can see my baby in so much details even if the nursery is pitch black. The app is also easy to use and comes with a neat alert notification feature.

I also like that the IQ package comes with an "independent audio parent unit". It's like a traditional audio baby monitor that doesn't need wifi, so it's like having two monitors in one.

Good wifi monitor for babies

Love the app and the camera quality. Works great across my iPhone and my husband's Android phone. It's a lovely baby monitor that's easy to use. Got all the bells and whistles.
