The one thing that I regretted when it came to baby purchases the first time around, was our choice of pram. We were on a tight budget after the IVF and we couldn't justify the crazy prices of the more expensive options - so we went with a basic pram that was light and easy to fold and store. That was fine... except for a few things we didn't realise at the time.
- The pram we bought was actually not ideal for newborns, as it didn't recline flat and wasn't supportive enough for wee ones on its own. The pram would have been compatible with an infant seat, only we were planning on getting a regular convertible car seat and so the sales lady didn't bother explaining that to us. Needless to say, as a baby, Georgia HATED the pram, and I ended up hating taking her out in it.
- It only faced outwards. As I mentioned just now, I had a pretty miserable baby in the pram those first few months, so I was constantly having to stop, walk around & check in on her when she was upset - I really, really needed the option to have her parent face. It got so bad that I ended up purchasing a clunky old cheap pram second hand that DID flip around, just so I could see my poor kid while we were out and about.
- The basket was useless and hard to get to, and because it was so lightweight, I could hardly hang my nappy bag on the pram without it feeling unstable and not particularly supportive.
It's no Bugaboo or iCandy or Silver Cross, but it's perfect for what we need it for. Miss G likes it too!
