Tips for Picking a Stroller

The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, offers these suggestions to help you choose a safe stroller for baby:

  • Make sure the base of the stroller is wide enough to keep it from tipping over.
  • Look for safety belts and straps to be secured tightly to the frame of the stroller.
  • Look for a safety belt fastener that’s easy to use.
  • Make sure the stroller’s wheels can be securely locked with brakes.
  • The basket should be placed low on the back of the stroller, just over the rear wheels.
  • Be sure the openings for baby’s legs can be closed when the stroller is used as a carriage.
