For peace of mind when your family is on the go, look to these recommended Bugaboo products and top safety tips to keep your infant safe.
Bugaboo Baby Gear to Keep Your Bundle Safe & Secure
1. Bugaboo Fox 3
The Bugaboo Fox 3 Bassinet and Seat Stroller is a versatile, all-terrain must-have. The bassinet attachment includes breezy panels for optimal airflow, ensuring your baby can regulate their natural body temperature and won’t get overheated on hot days. Better yet, you can magnetically seal the panel closed whenever cold drafts come your way. When your newborn is ready for the stroller seat, buckle up with the five-point harness, which allows each strap to be secured independently. The four-wheel advanced suspension and large puncture-proof wheels make it simple to steer (even one-handed!), no matter what bumps along the road you might encounter.
2. Bugaboo Donkey 5
From birth to toddler, this reversible, side-by-side double stroller is a sibling (and parent!) essential. It takes just three clicks to change up the configurations–you can use it with just one child, then add another! Kiddos can sit next to each other, face each other, or both face outward at the sights ahead. This latest version features a higher seat, bassinet and side luggage basket to bring your child three centimeters closer to you for an easier reach at mealtime, playtime and hug time. And just like the Fox 3, the new advanced bassinet’s ventilation system regulates your baby's temperature and keeps them comfortable no matter where you stroll!
3. Bugaboo Butterfly
Three words: one-second fold. Yep, this sleek, lightweight, ultra-compact stroller closes in just a second with only one hand. When folded, the dimensions are compatible with the requirements for carry-on luggage–making it an excellent pick for more effortless travel. The Bugaboo Butterfly is made for children six months of age and up to 48.5 lbs. However, it can be used from birth onwards with a car seat using the Butterfly car seat adapters (sold separately).
4. Bugaboo Turtle One by Nuna
Speaking of car seats, the Turtle One by Nuna seat seamlessly integrates with Bugaboo Ant, Bee, Butterfly, Donkey, Fox, Lynx and Cameleon 3 strollers. Designed in collaboration with premium car seat brand Nuna, this seat safely transports your baby from stroller to car (and back!) with ease from the day you drive home from the hospital to the countless adventures ahead. Parents appreciate the resilient outer shell and tailor tech foam for top-notch side-impact protection. P.S.: The Turtle One by Nuna is 20 percent off for the month of September in honor of Safety Month!
Top Safety Tips to Ease Your Worries
No matter which Bugaboo stroller you choose, these simple tips can help keep your kiddo safe and comfortable:
- Don’t hang heavy bags on the handlebars, or it may tip backward. Properly store your belongings in the basket below the seat.
- Always lock the stroller’s brakes when you’re stopped. And make sure the stroller is in a locked position when you put your child in!
- Never leave your child unattended in the stroller.
- When opening and closing the stroller, be sure that your child isn’t close enough to get their little fingers caught in the hinges.
- Buckle your baby’s harness whenever you’re out for a stroll.
