There are so many buggies to choose from, but which one is right for you? Here are the main styles you'll see on shelves and online...
A pram is essentially a carrycot on wheels. A pram allows a newborn baby to lie-flat and is used for the first 6 months of their life, or until they can support their head unaided. Some buggies come with a detachable carrycot, or carrycot that converts into a buggy seat, so they can be used first as a pram, then as a buggy.A pram may come supplied with a mattress. Some pram units, or carrycots, detach from the chassis and can be used as a temporary Moses basket (you will usually need to buy an additional mattress suitable for overnight sleeping). The advantages of using a pram, rather than a buggy with a lie-flat seat, are that it’s spacious and gives a wide, open view on the world. But a pram is big and bulky. The chassis (frame) may fold down but most pram units don’t and as a result, they can be a hassle to store.
