Strollers are a much needed part of baby equipment.
They enable the baby to enjoy the fresh air on long walks, to be part of shopping excursions, to safely hold baby when asleep on an outing and to encourage mothers and carers to exercise themselves while pushing the baby in the stroller.
Nowadays there is an endless variety of strollers available from compact strollers that fold up into a small space to more luxurious and padded strollers to enable the baby to be as comfortable as in his or her cot or basinet.
Strollers can also accommodate an older toddler with a step on the back or front for the sibling to stand on.
Strollers carrying more than one infant are also widely used to accommodate nursery staff and those who have children born close in age or those who have twins, triplets or more.
