Why You Might Want To Use A Frame Stroller

If you’ve come here looking for information on frame strollers, what they are, and why they are needed then you have come to the right place. In this article we go into great detail on why some people use them.

What Is A Frame Stroller?

A frame stroller allows you to easily move an infant car seat from the car to a stroller without having to take the baby out of the car seat. It carries the car seat.

Parents who don’t want to wake a sleeping baby will appreciate this type of stroller the most.

When Can You Start Using A Frame Stroller?

Unlike a normal stroller that requires that the baby’s neck be strong enough to hold up their head, you can use the frame stroller for newborns. Using the insert that comes with most infant car seats will give your baby the head and neck support she needs.

Stroller Frames Are Sometimes Universal

Some stroller frames can be used with any car seat. They use straps to keep the car seats in place instead of a snapping mechanism. The downside with using straps is that the fit has a little bit of wiggle room, but universal frames are perfectly safe for walking with your child.

You is just more room for error when you are dealing with straps instead of the more straight forward idea of something simply snapping into place.

What Are Some Of The Benefits Of Using A Frame Stroller

Stroller frames tend to be very lighter and much more compact that normal strollers. Sometimes they are easier to steer if they are designed well,  but that’s usually only the case when you have a frame stroller that is specifically designed to work with a particular car seat.

Frame strollers are also a lot cheaper than normal strollers. They can save you a lot of money in the short run.

What Are Some Of The Negatives Of Using A Frame Stroller 

You can only use a frame stroller for so long if they don’t come with their own seat. After the baby reaches a certain weight moving them from the car seat to the stroller can become a hassle. At that point you are better off just buying a real stroller instead.

For some parents using a frame stroller could encourage them to keep their infants in car seats for longer than they should. Having an infant in a car seat for too long is a potential SIDS risk. Instead of having an infant sleep in a car seat you should bring a portable crib for them to sleep in instead.
