When parents travel with a small child, they always consider the safety of their precious bundle when they need to drive or travel. Baby seats have been designed so that the infant or child does not get hurt in case of an accident. But parents cannot carry the infant all the time especially when they are shopping or sight seeing. Thus the need for a stroller so that their hands can be free and both the parents and the child can be comfortable. But there are advantages and disadvantages in using a baby car seat stroller.
A baby car seat stroller or traveler is a combined baby car seat and baby stroller in one. This is handy for parents who don’t want to spend extra money on separate strollers and baby seats. The advantages of having a stroller is that when you will be driving you can remove the baby seat from the stroller and attach it to the seat of your vehicle, then stow the stroller in the trunk or back of your car. When you get to your destination, you can just re-attach the baby seat back to the stroller. Another advantage with the stroller is that the accessories have been tested for safety together with the car seat and the stroller.
One of the disadvantages of having a baby car seat stroller may be its size or bulkiness. Parents will already have to deal with the extra baggage containing the baby’s diapers and feeding bottles, so it may be a hassle having to deal with stowing away the bulky stroller. Many parents also do not consider getting a stroller, instead they get separate baby strollers and baby seats for their child. They can simply strap the baby seat in the stroller the same way a stroller is strapped. In terms of safety, what matters most is the baby seat when parents do travel or go out.
As with baby seats, one should check if there have been any product recalls for the baby car seat stroller. Parents should check this one out especially if they are using a used stroller. Parents also need to make sure that the car seat will fit the child and can be attached properly to the seat of their vehicle. No matter how trendy looking the stroller may look with its color coordination, it will not serve its’ purpose if the baby seat cover cannot be properly installed. The same precautionary measures should be used in considering a baby car seat stroller and a plain baby seat cover.
Another factor parents need to consider when they will get a baby car stroller when it comes to its’ bulkiness is how much more space is left when the stroller is stowed at the back of their vehicle. As with all baby strollers, parents need to check if the bulkiness of the stroller when stored will take up all the space in the trunk or back of their vehicles.
