New mums will know that life can get very busy with a little one, and you’ll need to be able to take your mini with you on your daily errands or social calls in a practical and stylish stroller.
The best baby stroller for you will depend on what you’re looking for. Many will offer storage and reclining seats and canopies; a lightweight or compact stroller (also known as an umbrella stroller) is ideal if you live in the city or travel a lot; a jogging stroller is sturdy enough for you to run with baby; and a stroller travel system comes with a separate car seat that can be used for travelling as early as when you leave the hospital.
And, of course, there’s also a double stroller for twins, or anyone that has two small children close in age.
Whether you’re taking your kids to school, going shopping, visiting friends and family, or travelling abroad, we’ve rounded up the best baby strollers below.
