Buying a pram is the most expensive investment for most parents preparing for their new arrival. It’s also the item that’s going to get the most use. Why then is it such a complicated process?
Hubby and I pretty much made up our minds about which pram we wanted before we set foot in a shop. I even managed to ‘test drive’ a few models. Yet what should have been an easy verification process before we handed over the credit card still managed to take us the better part of 3 hours over 2 separate visits to John Lewis.
One thing I’m sure of is that standing in a shop with no ideas about which pram you want will be totally overwhelming to your pregnant self. I’d highly recommend doing your preliminary research from the comfort of your sofa. There are just so many options to choose from.
In order to make the process easier, I asked my friends to answer a series of questions about the prams they used. I’ve put their responses together in this post. I can’t promise that it will make it easier to order the pram you want, but it will help you assess the options from a real life parent perspective.
