Newborn strollers and safety

Safety is probably the first thing that comes to mind for new parents. We know. That’s why we design products to meet or exceed all international safety standards. Our rigorous internal testing ensures our products can handle the toughest conditions. We go for the highest standards when it comes to design, flexibility, safety, and quality of newborn strollers. So should you!

How long can you use your stroller for your newborn?

All our lightweight strollers for newborn are made to be flexible and to allow for growing kids – and growing families! With the use of a bassinet or infant car seat adapter, several of our strollers are intended to be used from birth but can easily adapt as your child grows. We believe that a good stroller should match the needs of your family – from baby to toddler, for twins and for siblings. This way, your newborn stroller can last for years.

Choose a flexible stroller for a growing family

A stroller is a major investment that should last for a long time – and one that should be flexible enough for any family. We make strollers with a superior quality that can be used for a long time, and we strive to create timeless modern designs, to encourage their use for many years to come. All our strollers come with a wide range of accessories that let you make the most of your time with your child, at any age.

Are the materials in Thule strollers safe for newborns?

Yes, they are. Our strollers and accessories all use textiles that are OEKO Tex certified. This is the highest standard used to test all textiles that are used in baby and kids’ products.

At Thule, we have a strict Restricted Substances List (RSL) list to ensure that our strollers – as well as all our products – do not contain harmful substances.

Types of strollers

There are four different types of strollers, with their own distinct advantages. Here is a breakdown of the different models:

  • All-terrain jogging strollers
  • Compact strollers

The best stroller accessories for a day out

Finding the best stroller accessories can help make a long day out easier!

So, what stroller accessories do I need? Well, that all depends on your plans. Here are some of the best stroller accessories that can help you maximize the use of your Thule stroller and make the most out of your day in the sun – all while keeping your kids comfortable.

How to equip your stroller for a long day in the city

Explore new outdoor spots with your toddler

If you enjoy doing outdoor activities with your toddler in the city, it is crucial to find a stroller that is easy to maneuver in crowded spaces but can also perform on rougher terrain. The Thule Spring was designed to do just that – and with added accessories, you can get even more out of your day.

Why not start the morning off with a visit to a local market to buy some fresh produce? With an attachable kid’s Thule Snack Tray your child can munch on some food if they get fussy and hungry. In the growing heat of the morning, a Thule Spring Cup Holder for the handlebars gives you quick access to a much-needed iced coffee so that you don’t get grumpy either.

Buying things at the market (or anywhere else, for that matter) isn’t a problem, since the Thule Spring has a large storage basket that is easy to access. You can also bring with a Thule Organizer, a bag that can be attached at the bottom of your stroller. The different compartments efficiently store essentials like a bottle, diapers, wipes but also your keys, wallet and phone.

Next, it’s time to hit the swings! Pushing your toddler through the park to the playground is easy with the maneuverability of the stroller’s wheels, and the Thule Spring Bumper Bar gives your kid a handle to hold onto when the ride gets bumpy. Once your children have tried out all the playground equipment a couple of times, it’s time for an ice cream.

Fastening them back into the stroller for the ice cream, the Thule Seat Liner is a useful addition to add a pop of color to your stroller but also gives your child extra comfort. If the ice cream gets sticky and drippy (which it’s likely to), all you have to do is take the seat liner off and throw it in the washing machine when you get home.

After a long day out, your toddler can take a nap in the stroller while your oldest hops on the Thule Glider Board and rolls all the way home.

How to equip your stroller for a long day in the city

Every day is an adventure with a newborn

With a newborn, even the simplest of trips can be a big deal. With the Thule Sleek stroller you have the option of adding a Thule Sleek Bassinet while your child is very young. When your child gets older you use the reversible main seat, and an additional Thule Sleek Sibling Seat when you have your second child.

Maybe a picnic in the park is a good first outdoor adventure? In this case, your life will be made easier if you have all your essentials close at hand. The Thule Changing Bag includes a changing mat and many storage pockets to organize your diapers, bottle and wipes. The outer pockets also help to keep your phone, wallet and keys in order. It is easy to reach as it hooks onto the Thule Sleek, but can also be converted to a backpack or slung over the shoulder.

Depending on where you live, summer weather can be unpredictable. Protect your baby with a Thule Sleek Bassinet Mesh Cover that provides ample ventilation but also gives them UV protection and keeps insects away. Or bring along a Thule Sleek Bassinet Rain Cover just in case the weather turns. All Thule strollers have corresponding mesh covers and rain covers.

Start the day with a jog, end it with a swim!

If the dream outdoor day for you involves working up a sweat, then maybe a jogging stroller is more up your street? Bring your kids along in a Thule Urban Glide 2, a jogging stroller that is equipped both for harsher terrain and the everyday challenges that a city may throw at you. Since there are lots of jogging strollers to choose from, you can read our guide to pick the best one for you.

Load up the Thule Urban Glide 2 with the accessories and gear needed, and you won’t have to come back home after the jog but can continue with your day out in the sun. The covered storage at the bottom of the stroller means that your things are protected from the elements.

The Thule Organizer Sport is a cup holder and accessory container that can be attached to the handlebars of the Thule Urban Glide 2. This way you have quick access to your water bottle while you run, but also a place to store your phone and important gadgets.

Why not take a run to the nearest beach? Then, after your jog, the big wheels of the stroller will help you push it through the sand, and you can take a dip with your kid in the ocean or build sandcastles (with the Thule Urban Glide 2 Double you can bring two kids along!).
