Pushchairs and Prams

Purchasing a Pushchair or a Pram

There are a many options available to you when buying a pram or pushchair. You should look to find one that suits you as you could be using it for a long-time.

What to look out for when choosing a pushchair or pram.
  • Choose a pram suitable to your living environment. For example, if you live in the country a pram with larger wheels is more comfortable along bumpy, uneven terrain. If you live in the city, you may want a pram that is lighter and easy to manoeuvre.
  • Is the pram easy to push around? Do not choose one just because it has fancy fabric or a desirable name.
  • Look for a pram suitable for newborns and toddlers i.e. one that has a carry cot and a pushchair seat.
  • Consider whether it has adjustable handles, adequate shopping basket space, folds easily and has good working brakes.
  • Does it fit in your car boot?
  • If you are tall, check that you can extend the pram handles to a comfortable level.
  • If you have a car, can you attach your chosen car seat to the pram?
  • Sometimes an older tried-and-tested pram saves you money, it may not be necessary to have the latest model of your chosen pram
