Standard Strollers, also known as full sized strollers or midsize strollers, contain a host of neat features and options that can make your life easier and make the ride more comfortable for baby. Here are some of the options you have when it comes to midsize strollers.
Padded seats – Makes the ride more comfortable and cozy for baby, especially if you're going for a long ride.
Removable/Washable Fabric – Babies and toddlers come with messes, so if you can remove the seat fabric and wash it, it'll help keep your midsize stroller looking its best.
Full size retractable canopy – These come standard on midsize strollers and help to keep the sun, wind and rain off of baby. A see through peek-a-boo feature is always nice because you can look at your baby even when the canopy is fully open.
Child snack trays and cup holders – Toddlers can have some snacks while they get a ride and parents can have somewhere to put a water bottle or other drink.
Storage Pockets – These come in very handy when you want to stash papers, small bags, and other items.
Adjustable handlebars – This is useful if you've got mom and dad using the stroller and there's a big height discrepancy.
Aluminum frame – It's rust resistant and lighter weight than a steel version.
