Many parents prefer to invest in an infant car seat for their baby to travel in a car and many prefer investing in a stroller, but most of the parents are not aware of having stroller and car seat integrated into one that can be used together. This helps in moving the baby quickly from your car to the stroller without any hassle. When considering to invest in one, PinkiBlue divides it into two distinct periods.
- Infant car seat era.
This is meant for 0-6 month old babies. This is because they don’t have the neck or core muscle strength to sit upright. So, all you need here is bassinet or stroller than works with infants or infant car seat with an adapter for attaching it to the frame of the stroller.
- Full size strolling epoch
This is meant for 7 month to 3 year old babies. This is for babies when they love exploring the surroundings outside and still cannot walk long distances. Many parents use this mainly for 2 to 3 year old babies. Know that the stroller works differently when your child is an infant and when they become toddlers. When centering too much on the infant phase, then go for the infant era.
