4 Interesting Ways Of Using Your Baby Stroller
A stroller is considered a must have for every mom the minute she steps into motherhood. Whether it’s a short trip to the neighbourhood, an evening walk, shopping spree in a mall or a travel expedition, a stroller does an excellent job of taking the load off your shoulder and making it much easier for you to carry your baby around. Perhaps, it is one of the best ways after the baby carrier, to keep your baby close to you without exhausting yourself. We all know that the stroller is used to carry a baby around but have you looked at it beyond that? I bet you have not. Well, let’s help you out a little to know what else your sturdy stroller is capable of
Rocker for your baby
Rocking is considered to be one of the best ways to soothe a fussy baby. There are specific rocking chairs meant for babies to help them soothe but for parents who cannot afford every possible baby gear on this Earth, the stroller can help you out a great deal. Put a nice and thick blanket or bed sheet, sing a lullaby, gently rock the stroller back and forth and watch your baby doze off to a peaceful sleep We have used it for putting him to sleep ‘n’ number of times; it’s especially useful for the daddy.
While we were looking for a push toy that our baby could hold on to and practice walking we were a little disappointed with the options. If we liked something it was costly and if something was within our budget it wasn’t strong and sturdy (I don’t believe in spending way too much on baby gears, which a baby is going to grow out of in just a month or so). One day when the stroller was standing in the middle of the hall my son crawled up to it and hauled himself up using it bars and started pushing it forward. I was overjoyed to see him bursting with happiness, giggles and screams. So, problem solved. No need to get a push toy, our sturdy stroller is doing the job really well.
You must be aware of how children love to create imaginary friends, places and characters. This is an essential part of a child’s development. Now, our stroller is an essential part of my baby’s pretend play. How? We use it as a shopping cart and go shopping through all the rooms in our house, pretending it’s a mall. Sometimes, it’s a luggage trolley at the airport while we are visiting some imaginary airports. And at times he is a zookeeper handing out food to the different zoo animals. He loves doing this everyday and at the same time it helps him practice walking. I am sure you got the idea and now you can pretend your stroller to be whatever way you want.

The stroller is excellent for carrying all my washing loads to the washing machine Call me lazy but why don’t use it when the thing is just lying around happily in a corner
