Fasten the seat belt

Babies’ behavior is unpredictable, maybe they not lift their bodies yet but you never know one day while strolling he/she suddenly lifts up the body. So buckle up.

Usage of Wheel brakes

While strolling on a hill station, usage of breaks is very important. Do use them while walking downhill. Despite of wheel brakes never leave the stroller unattended.

Read the Manual Carefully

Every stroller operates differently and gets fixed and locked in a different way. If strollers don’t get locked properly they can collapse resulting into severe injuries. In most strollers the click sound indicates it has been locked and is safe to use.
