If you are beginning to look for an umbrella stroller, then your baby is probably reaching the age of about six months and is ready to sit up and look at the world around him. At this point, you are probably tired of pushing a big, hard to maneuver stroller in busy shopping malls and streets.
An umbrella stroller is exactly what you need to make life a little easier. Umbrellas strollers are lightweight, easy to maneuver and are quite affordable. They are easy to fold and pick up with your baby in your other arm and can easily be taken onto public transport or be placed in the trunk of a car.
The MacLaren company were actually the inventors of the umbrella stroller back in the 60’s. Maclaren also invented the three-fold system of folding strollers. This unique folding system allows the stroller to fold forward and inwards creating a neater, trimmer package.
For those with twins or triplets, double and triple umbrella strollers are available. These are manufactured to ensure that you still get the same benefits as a single stroller so they are still easy to fold and are relatively lightweight.
An umbrella stroller can be as affordable as you wish but remember that you generally get what you pay for. If you want something that will last the distance then try not to go for the cheapest model available. Look for good quality brand names and check the features thoroughly before making your decision.

Umbrella strollers are lightweight, easy to maneuver strollers. Why are they called umbrella strollers? Because they have hooked handles and fold up neatly like an umbrella. They are ideal for quick dashes to the shops or if you are taking public transport as they are quick and easy to fold and maneuver in crowded public areas.
Umbrella strollers are generally cheaper than most other strollers. Most are fairly basic without the added extras found in regular strollers such as under storage baskets and bottle holders. Unless they state otherwise, these strollers are generally not suited for newborns.
Not all umbrella strollers adjust right back so are not suited for young infants who need adequate head and neck support. They are best for toddlers who are able to sit upright in the stroller.
Reclining umbrella strollers are available online, with the convenience of the easy to fold facility but also provide support for baby’s developing neck and back muscles, whether sitting or reclining.
The recliner strollers have back slats built into the fabric and partially recline to allow baby to take a nap.

Umbrellas strollers are available in single, double and triple styles making them suitable for multiple births or where you have two or more infants close in age but not yet walking. Most parents purchase an umbrella stroller as a second stroller as their baby gets older. They are easy to fold, light enough to carry onto public transport and easy to place in the trunk of a car.
