Stroller Safety Tips
Strollers offer a wonderful and convenient service to parents and caregivers. The first priority in choosing a stroller should be safety.
To prevent tipping, choose a stroller that has a wide base so even when your child leans over there is no chance of the stroller tipping.
If you purchase a stroller that includes a recliner position check the stroller to make sure the stroller does not fall over backwards when the child reclines.
Remember to use the stroller seat belt at all times.
If your stroller has a basket, use that for purses and bags rather than hanging these items over the handles. The basket on your stroller should be placed over the rear tires.
To prevent accidental folding of the stroller always use the locking device. The brakes are used to limit the rotation of the tires when the stroller is at a complete stop.
Make sure you do not accidentally pinch your child's fingers when folding or unfolding your stroller. Be conscience of where those little hands are at all times.
If you are using a jogging stroller make sure you use the safety strap that fits around your wrist. This can help prevent the stroller from getting away from you.
When you are in a parking lot make sure that the stroller is always next to you while unlocking the car. Put the child into their car seat before storing the stroller.
Before you cross the street, position the stroller completely out of the street and make sure you are safely on the curb.
Check your stroller to make sure it is completely opened and in the locked position before putting your child in it. A good habit to get into is pushing down on the seat with your hand to make sure it safe for your child.
When stopping on a hill, always remember to set the brakes on your stroller, even if you are just stopping for a moment.
