Going for a walk with your little one lets you both enjoy some fresh air and helps them experience the outdoors. It's important to pick the right travel system for your baby's age and one with enough space to help you get around on a daily basis.
Strollers tend to be lighter and can be folded up, which makes them easier for taking on public transport. They're recommended for toddlers and younger children.
Can mean either a pushchair or a stroller. A bit like Hoover and Biro, it's a case where the name of a certain brand has become used for all similar products.
Pick the perfect pushchair
Still not sure what to go for? Our buying guide gives you an in-depth look at prams, pushchairs, strollers and buggies, helping you to choose the right one for you.
What's a baby travel system?
Travel systems combine a carrycot, a pushchair and a car seat all in one.
This means you only have to buy one piece of kit for their daily travels, and it also makes it easier for you to move your baby from one place to another without waking or disturbing them.
What's a baby carrier or a sling?
Baby carriers and slings bring your child close to you, cuddling them to your body while leaving your hands free. This allows you to do your shopping and all kinds of jobs while bonding with baby.
A sling is better for the first 6 months, as it offers a lot of support for their head and keeps them closer to you. After that, you can carry them front facing, or rear facing as they start to get more curious about the world around them.
