If you are a parent of an infant or toddler, I’m sure convenience is important for you. It’s one thing if you don’t travel or have to take your baby everywhere. But like most parents, you do have your share of loading and unloading all the necessary equipment for your child. While being out with your baby is nice, it would be nicer if it wasn’t so time-consuming and cumbersome.
The two major pieces of equipment that all parents need are a car seat and a stroller. These are absolute must-haves. And these are the two baby items that are the most bulky. First you have the car seat that you have to place your baby in and then strap him or her in. Once you reach your destination, you go to the trunk of your car to pull out the stroller. The stroller then has to be open after which you unhook your child from the car seat, place them in the stroller and buckle them in. Somewhere between taking the stroller out and placing your baby in the car seat, you grab the diaper bag and whatever else you need.
Very, very time-consuming. Especially if you are a busy parent with various daily errands. But there is good news, great news even! It’s called a car seat stroller combo. It looks like a regular car seat, but as they say, looks are deceiving. While driving it acts and functions as a car seat. When it’s time to get out of the car, press the button to make a set of wheels and handle come out, just like a stroller. This isn’t the kind where you strap the car seat on top of the stroller. This ingenious device is a stroller and car seat all in one. While in car seat mode, the stroller components are tucked away hidden. Then the stroller portion comes with an additional security strap to keep your baby safe.
These car seat stroller combos are very safe and durable. They are not only built for convenience but with your child’s safety in mind. With that said, there are some downsides to these strollers.
If you’re looking for a car seat and stroller that can be used for different body lengths and weights as your child grows, then you need either to find another car seat stroller or purchase a new one when your baby grows out of the old one. Another thing to consider is the size of your car. While it does look and functions like a car seat, some car models may be too small to accommodate a car seat stroller combo. Before you purchase one, be sure to check the dimension against the dimensions of your car.
