By Peter Sontanich

Isn't it wonderful when you bring your first baby home? Suddenly your life has changed forever, and in ways you didn't even think about before baby. You're about to discover how much more difficult it is to get around now with a baby than it was before baby. You need a baby stroller.

And you'll find that there are some practical problems getting around with a new baby too. Suddenly you can't rush out at the last minute, jump in the car and go. Getting in the car with baby has become a longer more drawn out process.

You mum and dad probably had a pram for you. Probably a steel pram that weighed a ton and wasn't really user friendly. Hard to get in the car, heavy and slow to push. You had a real struggle to get baby and pram both into the car.

But modern technology allows the manufacture of strollers that overcome these problems. They are lighter, fold up much better and are way easier to push, with bigger wheels.

And that's not all, there are other benefits to a having a baby stroller too. Benefits for baby. For example you can get strollers with reclining seats so baby can sleep or sit up and look around. And they should have adjustable footrests for a growing baby.

And you should also get plenty of storage space for mums shopping, and you should also make sure you have good brakes.

And whilst talking of brakes, here's a few safety issues. The brakes should be a foot operated brake that operates brakes on all wheels. The brakes should be good enough so that you can stop a fully loaded stroller on a good hill and the brakes will hold. But remember for safety never stop on a hill unless absolutely necessary. And even with the brakes on you should also stop across the hill rather than facing down.

And while talking about safety make sure you're getting a solid adjustable 5 point safety harness, that's essential. There have been accidents in the past where baby has tried to stand up, and succeeded.

And here's a couple more safety tips for the safe use of baby strollers. If you need to take baby and stroller up stairs then look for a lift. It's very difficult to take a baby in a stroller up stairs safely. If you must then take baby out of the stroller, but better not to go up.

And lastly, don't tie your dog lead to the stroller if you're taking the dog. You could well find that suddenly the dog takes off, the stroller follows, and baby is gone.

And surprisingly a good new stroller is very affordable. You can find stroller brand new at an extremely affordable price if you know where. A stroller is very cheap convenience for you and comfort for baby.
