Getting ready for a new arrival? Or need a new stroller for your growing toddler? With so many options, choosing a new pushchair can be overwhelming. From buying a pushchair during your pregnancy, to choosing the best features for a travel system, we'll help you find the perfect fit.

Which is the best pushchair to buy for…

Newborns? Toddlers? Pushchairs are grouped into two main categories: those that are suitable for babies from birth, and those that are better for babies and children over 6 months.

Also known as first-stage pushchairs, these let your baby lie flat. Suitable from birth until 3-4 years old, they sometimes also come with a carry cot and car seat. The seat is often reversible so that it can be adapted to go from parent-facing to forward-facing as your child grows.

Babies over 6 months & toddlers

Also known as second-stage pushchairs, these are forward-facing and designed to be sturdy yet lightweight and compact. They’re ideal for little adventures when your child may want to walk some of the time. Easy to fold, some come with one-handed operation – great to pack into the car.

What are the different types of pushchairs?

Cuggl Rowan Complete Stroller Rustic Blue.


Sturdy and designed to last, pushchairs are great whatever their age or stage. Often compatible with a car seat or carry cot, they can include a lie-flat function for newborns, a reversible seat that can switch from parent-facing to forward-facing, and ample padding for comfort.

Strollers and buggies

Light and easy to collapse, strollers and buggies are suitable for older babies who no longer need to lie flat. Forward-facing, they often fold lengthways. Or choose a compact stroller which folds flat, great for fitting in small spaces. There are also super-lightweight options less than 7.5kg.

Bugaboo Bee 6 Complete Carrycot.

Prams and carrycots

Fully flat and parent-facing, a pram allows newborns and young babies to lie flat. Often bought as part of a travel system, they provide comfort and protection during the earliest stages. For many, the pram detaches to become a carrycot – great for travelling away in the early months.

Safety tips

  • Always strap your little one in using the pushchair harness.
  • Apply the brake when you’re not on the move.
  • Fix swivel wheels, if possible, when pushing over rough ground – this will help to stabilise the pushchair.
  • If you’re using a pushchair for a newborn baby, make sure the recline is 150 degrees or more so that your baby can lie flat.
  • Check the wheels and brakes regularly for any signs of damage.
  • Keep little fingers away from the folding mechanism, and make sure it’s fully locked open when in use.
  • Only store shopping and bags in the basket underneath the pushchair, not from the handles. This will prevent tipping.
  • Know the weight limit. Overloading with bags or a child whose weight exceeds the limit can lead to instability and breakage.
