Ah, the famous stroller! Equipped with 3 or 4 wheels, it is essential for parents of young children. But as useful as it is, the stroller also represents a real source of danger, if it is not chosen and used with the greatest care. Here are our safety tips.

1. Control the standards

  • Whichever model you choose, you must check that it has the "EN 1888" (European standard), "NF S 54001" (French standard) or "Complies with safety requirements". The manufacturer's name and serial number must be clearly identified on the stroller.

2. Choose a safe mark

  • While price is not necessarily a guarantee of quality, the brand can nevertheless be a good indicator of choice. In this regard, it is better to opt for a stroller model that has not been recalled.

3. Opt for a model adapted to the age of the child

  • First age trio pack, 2nd age stroller, cane stroller ... There are models of strollers adapted to each age of the child. Before 9 months, for example, you can not use a baby stroller.

4. Equip your stroller

  • To improve baby comfort, most strollers have a wide range of adaptable accessories. Parasol, protection against the rain, nest of angel for the winter ... All these products also favor the baby's safety in the face of the external conditions which he is confronted.

5. Check the folding and unfolding system

  • Before you buy your stroller, test it by folding it and folding it several times. This manipulation must be easy to perform and must not show signs of jamming. In practice, it is advisable to open or close the stroller away from the child to prevent any risk of pinching fingers.

6. Test the braking system

  • When your baby is comfortably seated in his stroller, you should regularly check the proper operation of the wheel lock on flat and sloping ground.

7. Do not leave the child unattended

  • Parents should never walk away from the stroller, even if the child is asleep. We must know that falls are the most common accidents with strollers.

8. Avoid used strollers

  • It is not advisable to buy a stroller on a garage sale or flea market. Most old models do not actually meet the standards. If this happens, remember to change the attachment system if it is damaged.

9. Do not overload the stroller

  • One of the biggest risks of a stroller accident is the tipping. Parents tend to hang too much on the handlebars, inevitably causing an imbalance of the gear. It is also not recommended to put two children in the same stroller.

10. Regularly maintain the stroller

  • To go far in complete safety, it is necessary to spare his mount! With strollers, it's the same! It is therefore essential to store your stroller in a clean and dry place, when you do not use it, and to check the state of wear of the various elements that compose it. A little cleaning from time to time will not hurt him either!
