How to choose a baby pram or stroller that’s perfect for you

 

If you’re like most new parents, you probably feel a bit overwhelmed by the variety of prams, strollers, and travel systems on the market. So many features! Where should you begin? Learn more below as we guide you through this important purchase.

The style of pram you need

A good way to work out what style of pram or baby stroller you’re after is to think about how you will use it. Firstly, is it for one baby or two?

Single prams: If this is your first baby, a single pram is the way to go. There are plenty of single prams and accessories on the market that are designed to grow with your baby, such as the Cybex, Babyzen and Mima prams. Many single prams feature adaptors that allow you to connect a second seat later, like the Baby Jogger range (something to keep in mind if you’re considering another baby in the not-too-distant future).

Double prams: If you have two babies to accommodate, our range of double prams gives you options galore. Whether it’s twins needing matching seats, or a toddler and newborn requiring adjustable settings, you can find a style that suits you. You could even attach a glider as a fun addition for your toddler. Double prams are available in side-by-side, inline and all-terrain styles. UPPAbaby, Bugaboo and Joolz have some great options.

Travel or umbrella prams: If you’re likely to travel a lot with your baby, a compact stroller or travel stroller would be a good choice because they are lightweight and designed to collapse down into a compact size for transport. 

Travel system: These systems use adaptors that allow a baby capsule to be used as both a car seat and a carry cot that will take your newborn from the car to the pram.

 

Three wheels or four

What is the difference between a 3-wheeler pram and a 4-wheeler pram? 

3-wheeler prams: Designed for busy lives and all-terrain, 3-wheelers offer manoeuvrability, are easy to push, and tend to be slimline. Thule has some great 3-wheel options. 

4-wheeler prams: Renowned for stability, a 4-wheeler offers even weight distribution and a stable centre of gravity. There is also a greater range of choices in this style. 

Here’s how to choose the best pram for your needs

 

When considering what you’d like your pram or stroller to do, it would be easy to believe it’s just for getting your baby from A to B. However, with the amazing variety of features and pram accessories available in today’s market, you have the opportunity to get quite specific about what works for you.

Features to look out for:

  • Bassinet or car seat attachments: Your newborn will fit into a bassinet or car seat for up to six months. At this stage, a bassinet and car seat with adaptors that clip directly onto your pram can mean less interruptions for a sleeping baby.
  • Simple fold: Allows for a quick pack-up and set-up.
  • Weight of pram: Consider how heavy is too heavy for you. Will you be able to lift it into your car boot?
  • Easy to clean: Babies can be messy. An easy-to-clean surface or a seat liner need to be on your buy list.
  • Safety: Stick to products that meet Australian safety standards. A strong parking brake, a five-point harness and a wrist tether strap are all must-haves for your pram or stroller.
  • Fits into your car: If your boot space is tight, you will need to check dimensions carefully first.
  • Reclining seat: The perfect comfort feature for a baby who needs to sleep. The UPPABaby Cruz v2 allows your baby to sleep flat.
  • Retractable hood: To keep the sun and rain off your little one.
  • Adjustable safety harness: Your baby will grow so much in their first two years that you will regularly need to adjust their harness.
  • Airflow: So important, especially on a hot day.
  • Forward or rear facing: Many parents like to have their baby facing them, especially as a newborn. However, forward facing allows your baby to take in the scenery. It’s handy to have options.
  • Easy to steer: There are many obstacles you’ll need to navigate, from toys on the floor at playgroup, to tight aisles at the shops.
  • Adjustable handle: A handlebar you can adjust is a useful feature because not all mums and dads are the same height.


Size does matter

 

Do you have a small car? Live in a unit or a house? Would you like your pram to double as a vehicle to haul your shopping, nappy bag, and other paraphernalia? Will you spend most of your time hitting the streets of Melbourne or sticking to footpaths and parks? Answering questions like these will help you work out if you should be looking at compact or spacious options.

Other accessories you might like to consider

 

There are a few more baby pram accessories that will make getting out with your baby a breeze. Do you like a cuppa on your morning walk? If so, a cup holder is a must. If you live in a chilly climate, a footmuff would be a good investment, as is a rain cover. And an organiser will help you grab things quickly while on the go. 

Other baby products that are a must-buy include a change mat, as well as swaddles and sleeping bags to aid quality sleep, slings and baby carriers (very handy for a quick outing or for settling your baby), bibs and highchairs for when it’s time to wean, bottle warmers for quick and easy warm milk, mattress protectors to preserve your cot mattress, bouncers for fun, and once their older, a booster seat.

FAQ’s:

 

What type of pram is best for a newborn?

 

Newborns need to lie flat. This means that a bassinet or fully reclining seat option are safest and best-suited to a newborn. Some good options for newborns include the Uppababy or Babyzen ranges which can be found on our single prams page.
