Buggies, pushchairs, prams and strollers are baby carriers of the modern society. It can be a daunting task to choose the perfect baby carrier that will keep your little one comfortable and secure while on the move. Where do you start?
Baby carriers can be divided into three categories and the first thing you should know about carriers is that it all depends on the age of your child. The first category is the lie-flat newborn buggy which is specifically designed for new born as they need to lie flat in their buggy so as to help them with lung development, breathing and spinal development. Most of the buggies have a 2-in-1 system in that it can be converted into a reclining seat for toddlers at a later date.
There is the travel system that includes a car seat and carrycot that can be clicked in and out of the buggy. These offer multiple functions in one and makes it easy to transport sleeping babies without causing disturbance. Finally, there is the stroller which tends to be smaller, lighter and easier to fold away and store. They are ideal for travel and are typically designed for toddlers although you can find good ones that are suitable for newborns. The best buggy depends the age of the child.
