Stroller ergonomics?

Stroller Stretcher makes pushing easier, mom says


 
 
 
For the past two and a half weeks I’ve used the Stroller Stretcher from Berkeley Baby Products, a stroller handle extension that is supposed to make it easier to steer and push a stroller. This is a blessing for taller parents (I’m 5 feet, 8 inches; my husband is 6 feet), and it was so nice to not have to stoop over the stroller.

We attached it to our daughter’s umbrella stroller. Installation was easy—the pictures really helped. I did have to use the wrench to tighten the attachment after about a week of using it. My only complaint was that the stroller we use is pretty flimsy, with rubber covering the handles. The rubber would sometimes turn, making the device feel unsteady. The product was not at fault for this—I think it was our bargain stroller.

I would recommend the device for all parents. Not only was it helpful adding height to the stroller, it also made the stroller easy to push with one hand. The handle is adjustable so you can get it comfortable for you. It makes the stroller seem a little less compact when folded up, but was not a problem for storing in the car trunk. I was pleased with the product overall.
