As an expert member of kids in the House, she published a stroller review regarding buying a second-hand stroller: “We do not recommend that you purchase a used car seat. If your sister used the car seat and you know she was never in any crashes. You know the history of the seat or maybe you want to pass it down from your first child to your second child, that’s perfectly okay as long as again the car seat is still in good condition. There are no cracks or missing pieces and has not been in any accidents.”

When you use your stroller, be sure to strap your child in for safety.”

When choosing an infant car seat and stroller, consider brands that offer compatible travel systems for easy transfer from car to stroller on the go. Fully compatible models may use the same attachment system for both the stroller and car seat base, which means parents can learn only one safety system and ensure baby is secure wherever she is.”

“What are some things to keep in mind about stroller safety? Obviously the first thing for me was to read the instruction manual. Figure out where the brake is and use it if the stroller’s unattended. Another thing I found really helpful was jogging; I tend to jog a lot with a stroller. I have a leash that attaches to me and the stroller in the event that something happens, I lost control of it or fall, it doesn’t go too far away from me”.
