If we like it or not, the cold winter is just about to cover the northern hemisphere in it’s white freezing blanket. Preparing the baby stroller to cold weather environments is important to keep baby from hypothermia and to help the parent ‘survive’ a stroller walk as pleasant as possible.
Who Should Prepare The Stroller For Winter
If you live in L.A or Texas, then this post is not for you.. But those living in northern USA or Canada, bitter winter conditions can be predicted.
There is no reason that the severe cold weather will surprise you and catch you unprepared. Like you prepare the family car, fix brakes, change tiers, add anti-freeze to the cooling system, you should prepare the family stroller to winter conditions.
Wet & Dry Freezing Weather Preparations
If your baby was born in the spring, or summer you might not have thought to buy cold weather protection to the stroller. Now when the winter winds are knocking at the door here are some baby stroller tips for cold weather.
