In the market for baby wheels? With hundreds to choose from it may seem overwhelming at first, but that’s where we come in. We'll help you choose the perfect pushchair for you, your baby, your lifestyle and your budget. And get it right first time.
Travel systems make life easier and quicker with a car seat that simply snaps on to your pushchair frame. Plus you can transport your sleepy baby from car to chassis without waking. Travel systems tend to be bigger than regular pushchairs so check the folded dimensions will fit in your boot (if you’re in-store allow us!)
If buses, trains and planes are big in your life think compact and lightweight. Choose a buggy or stroller with a carry handle and one-hand steering and folding – it makes life easier, trust us! Bear in mind that baby needs to lie flat for the first six months so if you have a newborn you’ll need a full recline model.
You’ll need a sturdy pushchair that’s up to the job. If you’re tall, choose a model with adjustable handles. For navigating city streets a lightweight model with swivel wheels is best. On rougher ground your baby will thank you for an all-terrain model with suspension and lockable or fixed wheels. And if you’re an all-weather walker choose a warm pushchair with a footmuff included.
Remember to check how big your hallway is and how wide your doorway is. If you need to squeeze your pushchair into an elevator or small car boot do check the dimensions.
Don’t forget that you’ll have baby in one arm, bag over your shoulder (keys in your mouth…) so lightweight and collapsible are key considerations.
If space is at a premium a compact pushchair that’s freestanding when folded will be a lot less cumbersome than a sturdy travel system. If space isn’t an issue a travel system or pram is ideal so you don’t have to disturb a sleeping baby when returning home.
Check whether the car seat, raincover, Cosytoes and sunshade are included or whether you can buy separately to customise your wheels.
If you’re thinking baby-making thoughts it’s worth investing in a study model that will go the distance. Also consider a pushchair with the option to add a double kit so your children can ride in tandem.
Read the online reviews, watch the product videos, take it for a spin, check (and double check) you can fold it… you’ll be spending a lot of time with your pushchair so it has to be absolutely right.
