What are the advantages of a playpen over a stroller?

Playpens and strollers are two different types of baby safety equipment, each with different advantages. Here are some advantages of a playpen over a stroller:

Safe Boundary: A playpen provides a safe boundary, confining your baby to a specific area and preventing them from entering dangerous places such as stairs, kitchens or other potential sources of harm. In contrast, a stroller only provides a means of mobility for your baby and does not provide a similar margin of safety.

Free movement: The playpen provides a relatively independent space for babies to crawl, explore and play freely. In contrast, strollers usually require someone to push them, and the baby's range of motion is limited.

Indoor use: The baby playpen is suitable for indoor use and can be set up in different rooms of the home and provide a safe area for activities. In contrast, strollers are mainly used for outdoor activities such as walking or shopping.

Observe and interact: Playpens are often transparent or have an open design, making it easier for family members to observe and interact with your baby's activities. This helps promote connections and communication between family members. In contrast, the design of a stroller may limit sight lines and interactions between your baby and family members.

Safe sleeping environment: A playpen can serve as a safe sleeping environment by placing a mattress or safe sleeping surface inside the playpen when your baby needs to rest. This provides a safe and comfortable resting space during family activities. In contrast, strollers are generally not considered a safe sleeping environment for long periods of time.

It should be noted that playpens and strollers each have their own specific uses and scenarios. In actual use, parents may choose to use one or a combination of both according to needs and specific circumstances to meet the safety and needs of the baby.
