How to buy prams – a quick guide
Hunting for the perfect pram can be daunting, but making a list and getting your priorities right will go a long way to helping you make the best decision.
- Decide what your needs are. If you are in the car a lot, a pram that doubles as a car seat might be really useful. If you live in the inner city, consider a stroller with big wheels for easy navigation up and down kerbs. If you like to keep active, think about a stroller specially designed to run with. One of the most overlooked but essential functions that come up again and again for mums is storage capacity. Even if you buy the most compact stroller on the market, freeing up both hands and having the ability to store your bags, extra blankets and all that baby gear is going to make things easier. Make a list of your most important priorities and start from there.
- Set a budget. A top-of-the-line pram can cost well over one thousand dollars. If money is no object for you, then go for it, but the reality is that you can buy good quality strollers packed with features in every price range. Set yourself a budget limit and search for strollers within that price range.
- Remember that you will probably own more than one pram. While good prams are designed to "grow" with your child and can accommodate him or her over a couple of years, different strollers work best for different activities, and a stroller for your newborn is probably not going to cut it when your child is older and wants the freedom to get in and out all the time – even if you buy a convertible model.
- Be savvy about safety. This is clearly one of the most important features that mums look for in a pram. Most modern prams from reputable brands are fitted with great safety features, but it never hurts to check online to see if there are any recent recalls (you can check on the Australian Competitor and Consumer Commission website). Always follow the instructions when assembling or converting your pram.
- Look at reviews. One of the best things about buying online is the huge online shopper community where you can read up on other customers' experiences with the brand and model you're looking at purchasing.
