A pram is one of the most expensive items you will purchase as a new parent. This essential piece of parenting gear is a must from the start until your child is able to walk for long periods on their own, normally around age 3 or 4.
But with so many different types of prams available, it can be hard to tell which one is right for your family! In the coming weeks we will be breaking down each Pram category to help make this purchasing process easier for busy Mums and Dads.
URBAN COMPACT PRAMS
An Urban Compact Pram is often referred to as a stroller or umbrella stroller. These prams are generally the most lightweight and transportable on the market. These prams are perfect for parents looking to easily transport their stroller and for quick trips around town. They fold with ease and can fit into even the smallest of cars.
Urban Compact prams have come a long way since the umbrella strollers from 10 years ago. Many of the strollers we look at have comfortable seats suitable for newborns, are compatible with travel systems and some even have wheel suspension.
Many parents find that they purchase a larger Urban or All Terrain pram for their everyday walks and activities and a second Urban Compact Pram for keeping in the car for the supermarket or for travel. With all the features the latest Urban Compact Prams have recently had added, there may be even less of a need to purchase 2 prams.
Together with Carolyn Webster, Baby Product Guru, we look at the some of the best Urban Compact Prams on the market.
