How to Choose the Best Pram For Your Newborn

Welcoming a newborn baby into your life is an incredible experience, full of joy, love, and lots of new responsibilities. One of the essential baby products you'll need is a pram to make outings convenient and your baby comfortable. With countless brands, styles, and features to choose from, picking the right pram can feel overwhelming. This guide will help you choose the right stroller for your family’s needs.


Why Do You Need a Pram For Your Newborn?

Buying a baby pram is not just a checklist item to be ticked off when you're expecting a newborn. It makes life easier and safer, especially if you’re a first-time parent. It's also a convenient way to take your baby along for walks, shopping, or errands while keeping them comfortable. Here's why a pram is a must-have for new parents.


Whether it's a trip to the grocery store, a walk in the park, or an entire day of running errands, a pram allows you to move freely without the physical strain of carrying your baby.


Infants spend a lot of time sleeping. A pram provides a comfortable and safe environment for your baby to relax or take naps while you're out and about.


Modern prams come with a host of features designed for parents' convenience, such as storage baskets, cup holders, and one-hand folding mechanisms. These features can make your outings far more manageable.


Types of Prams and Strollers for Newborns

Different types of prams come with various features, and when choosing one, you obviously want something that provides optimal comfort and safety for your baby’s earliest stages of life. Here are the different types of prams and baby strollers commonly used for newborns:

  1. Traditional Prams: These are the classic, single strollers that most people are familiar with. They often come with bassinets and carrycot or fully reclining seats suitable for newborns who need to lie flat for spinal development.
  2. Double Prams: As the name suggests, double strollers have two seats to accommodate twins or siblings close in age. The seats can be side-by-side or one in front of the other (tandem).
  3. Travel Systems: Travel systems are essentially a two-in-one or sometimes a three-in-one product. They include a standard pram and a detachable baby capsule that snaps onto the pram frame.
  4. Convertible Prams: These prams grow with your child. You can switch between a bassinet, a car seat, and upright strollers as your baby grows.
  5. Running Pram: Designed for parents who are runners or joggers, these three-wheel strollers come with large air-filled tyres for better suspension and a smoother ride.
  6. Travel Stroller: Ideal for families on the go, these compact strollers often feature a lightweight frame and a folding mechanism, allowing them to easily fit into car trunks, planes, and tight spaces.


What to Look for in a Pram

Picking the right pram is crucial for making life easier with your new baby. Depending on your family’s needs and priorities, here are some of the features you need to pay attention to:

  • Safety Features: 5-point harness, brake system, lockable swivel wheels, and a sturdy frame
  • Comfort Features: fully reclining seat, adjustable footrest, padded seats and handles, and breathable fabric
  • Convenience Features: storage baskets, cup holders and trays, canopy with a peek-a-boo window, and one-hand fold
  • Versatility and Longevity: adjustable handle height, reversible seat, and expandability
  • Portability and Travel Compatibility: lightweight design, compact fold, and travel compatibility
  • Specialised Needs: all-terrain wheels and suspension systems, especially for three-wheel prams
