Raising a baby in a small apartment has its challenges, especially when it comes to accommodating sizable baby stuff, like a stroller. Unfortunately, not all strollers are created equally; they vary in sizes and some strollers, they’re not made for small homes. Since space is at a premium, parents have to be creative in terms of how they utilize every square inch of space in a small apartment.
Apart from being space efficient, you have to think about the functionality and practicality of the stroller too. Is the stroller easy to tote around with one hand? Can it take on bumpy terrains? Is it easy to maneuver in narrow stairwells, grassy parks, subway stairs, etc.? If you are expecting and you’re on the hunt for the perfect stroller and you want something compact, light, and of course, sturdy, check out these buggies:
