What are the different types of pushchairs?
Prams allow your baby to lie flat, which is essential until your baby can sit up comfortably – this will usually occur when they’re 3-6 months old, but this can vary.
Traditional prams are quite unique these days; you’re more likely to find a model that doubles as a pushchair, meaning you won’t need to buy a separate one during your baby’s development.
You can use a pushchair with newborns if you select a model with a reclining feature or one compatible with a carrycot. This will allow your baby to lie flat until they can sit up.
There are several options such as twin and triple pushchairs, where the seats sit side by side. Whereas tandem pushchairs seat one seat in front of the other. Multiple seats are ideal for twins, triplets or children around a similar age.
Traditionally designed for toddlers or older children, however there are certain models that offer additional support for younger children.
They tend to be lightweight and easily foldable, meaning they’re great for transporting, travelling and for families on the go. Twin and tandem models are also available for multiple children.
Essentially, a pushchair with a detachable car seat, which should easily slot or click in. Some come with carrycots too, which can be used for newborns that need to lie flat.
The car seat can vary in type, but most travel systems are compatible with more than one model. Read our car seat buying guide for more information.
Say no to double trouble. Modern twin cruisers are designed to be as compact as possible, without compromising of any key features. They’re lightweight, perfect for lifting, folding and manoeuvring two babies around.
Carrycots are practical, stylish and extremely comfortable for baby. Not only can you secure these onto a compatible pushchair to mimic a pram, carry cots can be used as a cot for your baby to sleep in for the first few months.
