When putting together a baby registry or buying items for your impending bundle of joy, deciding on what type of stroller to purchase is a big deal. Your stroller will likely be one of the baby items you use the most. Because it gets so much use, you can usually tell a lot about a person by the type of stroller they own. Here's what your stroller says about you.
1. You don't own a stroller
You don't want to push your baby away from you, thank you very much, she's vastly more comfortable in her organic muslin 47 yards of fabric surrounding your body like a sweaty, but admittedly soft, cocoon. You proudly (and loudly) consider yourself to be an attachment parent, and Mayim Bialik is your personal hero, followed closely by Dr. Sears.
2. You bought an umbrella stroller
While your dedication to minimalism is appreciated, umbrella strollers suck for babies and you may be underestimating how difficult this whole parenting thing can be. Sure, it's light and small but umbrella strollers offer little to no shade and don't recline for naps. Save it until she's a toddler or old enough to take her dolls for a stroll.
3. You have a basic stroller
Easy to clean fabric, decent sunshade, reclines for naps and has a cup holder for your basic pumpkin spice latte. What else could you want?
4. You have a jogging stroller
You are going to shed this baby weight immediately, and nothing, not even the baby, is going to stop you.
5. You have a celebrity style stroller where each piece is a separate price
When it comes to baby gear, you figure the more expensive the product, the better it is. Nothing is too costly for your precious Keightlinn Grayse. Try not to be too upset in about year when you get pregnant with #2 and realize that your $1200 stroller with GPS can't convert to accommodate a second baby.
6. You got a used stroller off Craigslist
This is probably not your first kid, and you've been around the block enough times to know that little Keightlinn's outgrown Cadillac of a stroller is your Katelyn Grace's gain. Spritz that bad boy with some Lysol and Febreze and you're good to go.
