Whether it’s a full-size stroller or an umbrella stroller, buying a stroller is a big deal. Your child will spend lots of time cruising around in it–just as much time as you’ll spend pushing it. So it’s important to pick a stroller that’s comfortable and meets both of your needs. Because we’ve purchased quite a few strollers over the years, we thought we’d share our advice for smart stroller shopping. It’s simple, actually. Ready:

(1) Shop in person at the store.

(2) Buy online.

No mom should buy a stroller without putting it to the test with her own two hands. You may not have a baby yet, but you can still investigate how much strollers really weigh, how easy they are to fold and unfold and what other bells and whistles make your life a little easier.

Once you’ve put a few to the test and decided on your favorite, thank the salesperson who helped you and politely exit the store. Then, make a b-line for you computer, find your new stroller and click, purchase and wait for it to arrive at your doorstep. Buying online not only saves you from having to get a cumbersome stroller home, but it also allows you to comparison shop to you ensure you get the best price.
