MomBloggersPlanet Cutest Baby in Stroller Contest

Baby photo contest again? Yes, mommy here really wish to win those attractive prizes from PhotoBook Malaysia and Alicewonders.com, organised by Mom Bloggers Planet, where Malaysian Moms Unite! Photobook Malaysia prints those quality photos and present it in a book format for their client and Alicewonders, the online store that sell all those gorgeous bags!

The theme for October is Baby In Stroller! That's easy as I have not one, but two strollers now! Please note the deadline for submission is 15 October 2009. For more information, please click here.

The 2 things that I never leave home whenever I am out-and-about with my kids are the strollers and my sling. In fact, the strollers have been the permanent fixed assets in my car now. Stroller is great to ease the tired arm of parents (from carrying baby) or for baby to nap and sling is great whenever we are at crowded area or not so baby stroller friendly path!

We actually have two Mothercare Jive Strollers - that showed how much we love this stroller. We purchased our first one when Werney was about 1 year old as our previous stroller was too bulky for traveling. Since then, this trustworthy stroller has followed us to many places, both locally and abroad. After 4 good years, the stroller is still in great condition. This is one of my best investment in baby stuff so far!

A great value stroller that's perfect for holidays....but of course, we also uses it everywhere we go - zoo, mall, park, airport, ferry etc. We invested a second Mothercare Jive Stroller when we had Anney last year.

This is Anney in our Mothercare Jive Stroller.

Tips for choosing a stroller

Stroller can be a parent's best friend but choosing the wrong stroller could spell trouble and inconvenience. If you are a first time parent, you would probably be overwhelmed by all the term used by manufacturers such as umbrella-fold, 3-wheelers, drink holder, rain hood or harness.

I personally think that the right stroller should match your lifestyle. Will this be your primary stroller or one that you will use for traveling?

Some of the concerns that your might have when choosing a stroller are:-
  • Safety is be your priority. Make sure the stroller is tested for stability and come with 3 or 5 harness (5 is best!)
  • Age of your baby? If you are buying a stroller for newborn, then get one that can recline flat
  • Stroller weight? If you travel a lot on public transport, ensure you get one that is lightweight
  • Folding mechanism? Umbrella fold would be more compact and great for traveling
  • Where would you be using your stroller? If you intend to bring your baby for jogging at the park, then consider getting a three-wheelers as it is more stable and work better at terrain paths
  • Do you need those extra such as storage basket, sun shades, rain hood, cup holder? All this will add to the cost of the stroller
  • Lastly, the price of the stroller...ranging from RM100 to RM3,000+ depending on the brand. Buy one that meet your basic need and something that you can comfortably afford! I secretly wish to own one of those McLaren stroller that cost 4 digit sum but knowing how impractical that would be....I settled with my Mothercare Jive Stroller, which has served it purpose so far!
Stroller is a must-have for any new parents who love to bring their baby out and about.
