Pushchairs & Prams

Choosing the Perfect Transportation Method for your Baby

Selecting the right transportation method for your baby is a significant decision that requires careful consideration. Pushchairs and prams are two popular choices that offer comfort, convenience, and safety for both parent and child.

One of the most important decisions new parents make is to choose the right stroller for baby considering their suitability for different ages and sizes, and providing insights into selecting the perfect transportation method for your little one.

Understanding the Differences 

While the terms "pushchairs" and "prams" are often used interchangeably, they have slight differences in design and functionality. A pushchair, also known as a stroller or buggy, features a forward-facing seat that can be adjusted to different recline positions. It is generally suitable for babies who can sit unaided, typically around six months of age. Pushchairs are versatile, perfect for parents on the go, offering ease of manoeuvrability and the convenience of folding for storage and transportation.

On the other hand, prams are designed with a lie-flat position, making them suitable for newborns and infants. Prams provide a cosy and secure space for your baby to rest and sleep, especially during their early months. The lie-flat position is essential for supporting a baby's delicate spine and allows for optimal breathing and healthy development. Prams often come with carrycots, which can be detached and used as a portable bed for your little one. With prams, your baby can enjoy a comfortable and safe ride while being closely monitored.

Suitability for Different Ages and Sizes 

Consideration of your baby's age and size is crucial when deciding between a pushchair and a pram. A pram with a carrycot attachment is the ideal choice if you have a newborn or an infant. Renowned brands such as Chicco and Ickle Bubba offer a range of carrycots and pushchairs that prioritise your baby's comfort and safety. These carrycots provide a spacious and supportive environment for your little one to lie down, sleep, and relax. As your baby grows and becomes more curious about the world, transitioning to a pushchair or a stroller for toddler will be more suitable. A pushchair, such as a Chicco or Ickle Bubba stroller, offers a seated position that allows your child to observe their surroundings and interact with you more easily.

A twin pushchair is an excellent option for parents with twins or children of similar ages. Twin pushchairs provide a convenient solution, allowing you to transport both children simultaneously. Products like Chicco Twin pushchair and Ickle Bubba offer twin pushchairs with side-by-side or tandem seating arrangements, ensuring that both children have ample space and comfort during outings.

The pushchair is easy to manoeuvre with a flexible chassis for smooth movement over uneven surfaces, an extendable canopy for maximum sun protection, a spacious basket, and adjustable calf rest for your child's comfort

Chicco pushchairs are known for their sleek design, while Ickle Bubba pushchairs and strollers are famous for their affordability and packed features making them both ideal for parents needing luxurious and pocket-friendly stroller options. They offer a wide range of options, from lightweight strollers to travel systems and carrycots. Regardless of the child's age or size, there is a pushchair or stroller that caters to every child's needs, providing maximum comfort and safety for both the parents and the child.
