What to look for when buying a pram

Buying your first pram or stroller can be daunting because you just don’t know what features you might want or need. In this post, I’ll help you learn the key things to look out for when shopping for your first pram and help you make that all-important buying decision even when you haven’t got much, or any, experience to rely on.

I’ve broken this post down into subsections so you can easily find what you’re looking for but I recommend you start at the beginning and then just skip sections that aren’t relevant to you. I say this because I’ve structured the article with the really key decision points up front. If you don’t make those decisions first, you may end up choosing a pram or narrowing down your choices to models that actually don’t meet your needs.
