Buying a pram is a significant purchase when you’re expecting a baby. So if you’re wanting both versatility and epic value for money, a double pram is a fabulous investment to get you through your first baby, the toddler years and future babies as your family grows.
Hot tips for buying a double pram:
Consider your age gap: You might be expecting your first baby but it’s worth thinking long term when buying a double pram. If you’re planning on a minimal age gap, you’ll need two comfortable seats. If you’re planning a larger gap, perhaps a full-size seat and carrycot would suit you more.
Newborn and older toddler: Single prams that convert into double prams are an excellent choice for larger age gaps. This design allows you to use a single pram right up until you need to convert it to a double and then it morphs back into a single when your toddler is ready to walk. So easy!
Pram width matters: It’s a given that side-by-side double prams are wider than a traditional single pram so you need to think about things like the doorways at home and supermarket checkout aisles when out and about. A tandem pram is easy to navigate through streets and doorways, while wider side-by-side models allow children to interact with each other while on the go.
A weighty issue: Look for a lightweight chassis, particularly if you’re going to be pushing twins or close age-gap siblings because you’ll be pushing double the weight on top of the weight of your pram. It might not seem like a big deal when they’re newborn babies, but you’ll soon feel it when they’re toddlers!
