A Buying Guide for Prams

For expecting parents, a pram will be one of the most important purchases you will ever make. Prams come in all shapes, sizes, and designs, and a pram is something you will really need to get right the first time around. Though initially you won’t be leaving the house very often, as your baby grows, eventually you will be able to take them out on day trips, and to run various errands, which is why you will need a good quality pram in your possession. Prams however, are not as easy to buy as you may have hoped, and although they may look basic, nowadays they are anything but. A pram not only helps you to transport your precious cargo, it will also keep them comfortable, warm, and even visually stimulated at the same time. To ensure your days out run without a hitch, and to make sure your baby is happy and content at the same time, here are some useful tips for finding a pram that is ideal for you and your baby.

Which pram do I need? – Only you truly know this answer, as you need a pram that best suits your lifestyle and personal circumstances. If for example, you need to use public transport a lot, to run errands and such like, you will need a pram that is fairly light in weight, folding, or compact. If you need to lift the pram a lot, again, a lightweight design is vital. If the pram will be going inside your vehicle, when folded, make sure you take the correct measurements and make sure it will indeed fit as it is supposed to. For walking, a durable and hardwearing pram is important.

Which pram features does my baby need? – As well as you, there is also your baby to consider, so make sure you take them into consideration. For example, as newborn babies often lay on their backs as they cannot sit upright, a pram with a carrycot feature will be a good idea. You will also need to base the size of the pram on the size of your baby, as not all babies are as big as others.

What about accessories? – Accessories are also vitally important when buying a pram, as they will help keep your baby entertained and stimulated, which will keep temper tantrums and crying fits to a minimum, which is a huge bonus in anybody’s eyes. You can get prams with hanging mobiles, cup holders, sun shades, rain visors, and much more besides.

Price – The price of the pushchair is also well worth considering, as different models vary in price. You don’t need the most expensive model on the market, but at the same time, you shouldn’t go for the cheapest. Compare models, read reviews, and compare prices and settle on one that meets a realistic budget.
