    When do you need to rent a baby equipment?

    Renting is seldom an option that comes to our mind when we need an item, I guess this is how fortunate we are living in Singapore. Purchasing 

    Living in Singapore, the majority of us are pretty much fortunate because we can buy what we want in the market. 

    • When you can't decide whether to splurge and buy that expensive pram
    • When you need a second pram to be placed at caretaker/nanny
    • More flexibility

    You're Likely A Lousy Parent If You Do This

    Dear parents, you don’t buy yourself bigger-sized jeans to prepare for an expanded waistline a couple of years later, right?

    You wouldn’t buy your kid an adult bicycle because “he would outgrow his 3-wheeler sometime in the future”, right?

    So you shouldn’t be thinking of that one-size-fits-all stroller or 3-in-1 car seat to “save money” at the expense of your child’s comfort and safety.  

    We know that babies outgrow their clothes and baby gear very fast and often a stroller doesn’t come cheap. You don’t want to spend money on multiple strollers but you have to understand that your child has different needs when he is at 1 month old, 6 months old or 12 months old. 

    Why You Should Get The Right Stroller

    It is simple as it is. 

    At 0-6 months old, your baby needs a sturdy, structured stroller that can absorb bounces and prevent jostling, as well as a comfy seat that fully reclines, so your newborn can lie flat on his back.

    At 6-12 months old, your baby can sit up and you would need a seat that can be parent facing or world facing.

    At 12-36 months, you would need a good travel stroller to take him to places. 

    There are really different needs and you may find yourself needing to buy multiple strollers. But that is completely normal because your kid is growing. You will find that having two strollers for one child is almost a necessity.

    The Problems With 2-In-1 Strollers

    It is enticing to buy multi-functional strollers, for example, one that use an infant car seat carrier as the seat. We know this makes it easy to move baby from car to stroller. 

    However, comfort and safety is compromised when you allow baby to routinely sleep in a car seat outside of the car.

    Most parents don't realize that sleeping in car seats and other baby gear increases baby's risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The American Academy of Pediatrics SIDS prevention guidelines specifically recommend that babies be moved from car seats to a flat, firm sleeping surface as soon as is practical. 

    It's also important to note that a frequently cited 2009 study published in the journal Pediatrics found that healthy newborns sitting in a car seat had significantly decreased blood oxygen levels compared to those laying flat and the researchers concluded that infant car seats should be used for car travel and not as a replacement for a flat sleeping surface. Your infant getting sufficient levels of oxygen to the brain is pretty important for health and development!

    Strollers that use an infant car seat carrier as the seat are MAJOR contributors to the negative developmental effects association with this overuse.

    Continue to use an infant car seat carrier as a stroller once baby is able to sit upright.

    More often than not when buying a stroller, we consider practicality, cost and convenience without consulting anyone about what’s developmentally best for our babies.

    Rent Multiple Strollers Instead Of Buying

    We know that cost could be a problem. 

    In some cases, a child could go through 3-4 prams in his first two years. A pram can cost as much as SGD$2,000 and the wide variety of options is overwhelming. You might end up with four strollers at home when your child could finally start walking. In this aspect, it is not environmentally friendly at all. 

    Often these strollers are used for several months, and then are either disposed or left idling for months or even years.

    Save yourself the trouble, rent premium prams on a monthly subscription, and never worry about clutters and the next best pram fit.

    A rental subscription (link to Renting Is Not Embarrassing article) gives you the flexibility to switch prams whenever your baby outgrows it at an affordable monthly fee.

    Choosing The Right Stroller For Your Child


    Also called a pram or a carriage, a stroller is a hand-pushed baby gear capable of carrying your baby or young infant. It is typically needed until your child can walk on his own.

    A stroller is one thing that will keep your baby safe and comfortable, especially during the early stages of growth. With different models of baby strollers around, there are plenty of things to consider when it comes to choosing the right one for your child. 

    Since most strollers cost from $200 to $2,000, you want to make sure that you are investing in a safe, reliable and easy-to-use stroller.

    There are two main types of strollers: single strollers and double strollers, each of which has their own subtypes. Some strollers are built with 3 wheels; others with four wheels.

    The ideal stroller for your kid should be free of toxic materials, easy to fold and unfold, and equipped with a 5-point harness system.

    For Baby (0 to 6 months)

    At this point, your main concern is keeping baby stable, supported and comfortable. Look for a sturdy, structured stroller with a good suspension system that can absorb bounces and prevent jostling. Another must-have feature: a comfy seat that fully reclines, so your newborn can lie flat on his back.

    The Seebaby Lightweight Stroller QQ3 can recline to a 175 degrees, which is almost fully flat.  The full canopy shields baby from the sun and there’s also a functional basket beneath. Reviews say that it’s light yet sturdy; you can hang a moderately heavy diaper bag on its handle and it will not topple over.

    The Bugaboo Fox Complete Stroller has a super-compact fold, effortless steering and a roomy basket underneath. It comes with a complete stroller package includes the chassis, seat (reversible, fully reclining seat) and bassinet—everything you need to go exploring with baby from the day he or she arrives. It is also one of the more pricey options in the market.

    If you’re a city mom, or you just don’t drive much, instead of a travel system, get a stroller with a bassinet attachment. That’ll allow you to lay your little one down and go, with no attachments, adaptors or snaps to finagle with–something you’ll appreciate in the early sleep-deprived, new-mom days. The bassinet can also double as a mini crib.

     

    For Baby (6 to 12 months)

     

    Now that baby is sitting upright, your stroller’s seat is more important than ever. It should be roomy, with plenty of support and cushioning, adjustable and offer multiple recline positions to keep up with your growing child. Also make sure it comes with a five-point harness to keep your child snug and secure while you’re strolling.

     

    Strolling is a perfect chance to chat (read: bond!) with him, especially when he can see your face. One often-overlooked feature that will come in handy now: a seat that can face forward or backward.

     

    The Bugaboo Bee 5’s neat one-hand steering, one-piece fold makes it easy, and takes up less space at home. It is lightweight and easily reversible for parent facing and world facing.

     

    The four-wheel suspension features a damping mechanism for extra shock absorption so you can enjoy a smooth and stable ride when getting up or down sidewalk curbs. 

     

    Bugaboo offers car seat adapters for many popular car seat models so you can safely and easily transition between your car and your stroller.

    The Baby Jogger City Tour Lux is highly configurable to fit a bassinet or a seat. Featuring a compact fold with auto-lock, it makes travelling a breeze. 

    It has 5 riding options - an infant car seat or a foldable pram to accommodate children from birth, and a reversible seat (rear or forward facing). It also accepts a glider board for an older child to ride.

    For Toddler (12 to 36 months)

     

    Your kid is becoming more independent and curious, and wants to soak in the world around her. Also, you may be taking your child to more excursions or even overseas. You need a good travel stroller to explore places or simply visiting your favourite cafes. A must-have feature that will come in handy: compact folding and meeting cabin luggage requirements. 

     

    The Bugaboo Ant is their lightest, most compact stroller yet. Thanks to its most compact folded size, it can also be used as a carry-on for most airlines. It comes with a reversible seat, with parent-facing or facing-the-world position

    As like all Baby Jogger single strollers, Baby Jogger City Tour is equipped with one-hand quick fold technology, convenient to carry it around anywhere. It folds down to a compact size, meeting cabin luggage requirements.  


    The GB Pockit currently holds the Guinness World Records 2014 as the world's smallest and most compact stroller. The ultra-compact folding mechanism of the Pocket Air All-Terrain reduces the stroller into a handbag-shaped package in seconds and is airplane hand luggage compliant, great for when you are on the move, and practical and easy to stow away when you are not.

     

    Double strollers

     

    If you are expecting twins or just growing your family, this is where a double stroller comes in. Double strollers can be a big investment, but they are also key to getting out and about when you have multiples or two children close in age.

     

    The Mountain Buggy Nano Duo has an ultra-compact fold, is lightweight and comes with a shoulder strap for convenient, hands-free transportation on the go. It also comes with extra roomy seats with full lie-flat option. It is also convertible into a single travel system with the car seat adaptor accessory and easily manoeuvrable on Singapore’s landscapes. 

     

    The Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double features the City Mini quick fold and will accept 1 infant car seat. With its sturdy, all-terrain wheels, it makes it perfect for both every day excursions in the urban jungle and weekend adventures off the beaten path. The City Mini GT has roomy seats with a taller seat back and longer foot well to accommodate taller children. It also comes with individually adjustable sun canopies with peek a boo windows, adjustable five point safety harnesses with shoulder pads and buckle cover, a large and easy to access under seat basket, seat back storage compartments and a rear parking brake.
