Choosing the best pram for you and your new baby can be fun and exciting, or overwhelming and confusing – or all of the above.
There are SO MANY OPTIONS out there, so no wonder choosing the best pram for your family can be a bit of a daunting task. It can also be pretty expensive mistake if you don’t get the right pram to meet your needs.
Get the best pram FOR YOU
Most parents learn pretty quickly that there is no one solution fits all for any aspect of parenting. You have to make choices based on what’s best for you and your family. And choosing a pram is no exception. So don’t worry about the right pram for your sister, or a friend, or the shop assistant, or what anyone else is telling you what you do or don’t need in a pram.
You need to get the pram that ticks YOUR boxes, not anyone else’s. But that can be really hard when you don’t know what boxes you want ticked.
Questions To Ask Yourself When Choosing A Pram
Who is going to be using the pram?
One thing to think about is the handlebar height. If you and your partner are quite different in height you may need to look at an adjustable handlebar.
Also the weight of the pram is an important factor, especially if you’re planning to lift it in and out of your boot regularly. So make sure you’re able to lift the weight of your pram. Either the whole pram, or with the frame and seat separately.
Another thing to check is that you’re able to operate the essential functions of your pram. For example check that you can easily work the brakes, the seat recline and the fold.
When are you going to be using the pram?
If you’re going to be using the pram from birth then you need to make sure the seat is suitable for a newborn. You may need buy a bassinet/carrycot separately. Although some prams simply don’t have the option to be suitable from birth which is something you’ll need to take into consideration.
Alternatively if you’re buying your pram for an older child, or planning to use the pram for a few years, then you need to check that the weight limit and seat size can accommodate a larger child.
Where are you planning to use the pram?
Are you just going to be using your pram on smooth surfaces like footpaths, shopping centres, on public transport, or when travelling? So you need to find a pram that is compact and maneuverable.
Or do you need an all terrain beast, with big wheels and tough suspension, that provides your baby with full sun and weather protection, so it will take you anywhere you need to go?
Do you maybe want a pram with a seat that’s the perfect height to be parked at a table in a cafe?
Think about your life, where you go, what you do, and so you’ll get a bit of an idea about what you need your pram to do for you.
What else is important to you?
There are some features that might be really important to you might still make or break a pram purchase. For example being able to have your baby face you might be the one feature you want more than anything else. Or having the option of turning your pram into a travel system with an infant car seat.
It could be the option of a second seat later. There are so many prams these days that can convert easily from a single to a double. For example the Strider Compact, Uppababy Vista, Baby Jogger City Select, Bugaboo Donkey.
There are also little features like a one handed recline, a big basket, extra storage pockets, interesting colour and fabric choices, adjustable footrest, peekaboo window on the hood. It’s worth getting into a baby story and having a play with some prams to find the little things that might be a big deal to you!
How much are you able to spend?
You really can spend as little or as much as you want a pram. You can get an inexpensive second hand pram of Ebay, Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace for under $50. You can also easily spend thousands of dollars on the latest, high end, luxury pram. However keep in mind a good quality, mid-range pram, will cost around $400-700.
