When and how to safely use an umbrella stroller.
Hi. I'm Hallie Scheflin with American Baby Magazine. And these are three things to look for in an umbrella stroller. An umbrella stroller is lightweight and easy to fold. Ideally, it should be 12 to 14 pounds or even lighter and it should fold flat like this. Test it out before you buy. Make sure you like how the handles feel, where the basket is, and that you feel comfortable maneuvering the stroller. Because the seats of most umbrella strollers don't recline all the way, it's recommended that you use it for a baby 6 months and older. One word of caution, make sure your baby is a safe distance away when you're folding the stroller.
