Do You Need A Baby Stroller?
Let’s first addressed those parents who might not need a stroller, to begin with, but think they do. Baby carriers are another solution for you.
Sometimes it can be expensive to buy strollers again, just because you have another baby. Baby carriers can be used to take a stroll with your baby.
Not a newborn, but a bigger baby. It helped me a lot when I was travelling with my baby alone. Sometimes it can be more helpful than strollers.
This is something to think about too. A stroller board can also be another option for you. If you have a toddler right now they can use the board when your baby arrives.
It will cost much less than a brand new stroller. How about a second seat with adapters. You might even have a convertible stroller in your hands.
With adapters, you can buy another seat, and use that for your toddler. Your options are not limited.

So, having the options ready when your baby gets here is better. When I bought my stroller I was not that knowledgeable about all of these, I would have made a different choice.
However I did choose a good stroller, but my choice could have been better. Having a convertible stroller is the best choice if you ask me now.
