Since becoming a mum I have become obsessed with pushchairs. I never thought this would happen, but I don't ever find myself checking out other women's clothes any more...oh no...I'm now oohing over their pushchair!
So, I thought I'd compile a list of the nicest looking and most popular pushchairs which other mum's have raved about and that I am just a little jealous I don't have.
The first four are travel systems and the fifth is more like a stroller, although it does have a newborn nest you can buy for it!
1. Bugaboo Bee3
The Urban Pushcair that is lightweight and compact when folded. The perfect pushchair for busy mamas in a big city! This is the pushchair I am always lusting after. It's one of the most perfect pushchairs for life in London and I see it everywhere. A modern design that is durable and practical, yet very stylish!
2. Bugaboo Cameleon3
The Iconic pushchair that is great for many different terrains. A chunkier, slightly bigger pushchair than the Bee3, with a great big shopping basket! Any pram with a big basket that is easily accessible is a winner in my books - there is just so much stuff we have to cart around for our little people. I also love the fact that the brake for the wheels is up next to the handle bar - genius!
3. Silver Cross Pioneer
A classic brand and a classy design. This pushchair has one of the biggest shopping baskets I've seen and even has a cup holder - perfect for that much needed caffeine hit! I personally love this pram in black and silver as it looks so chic! It is the cheapest of the four travel systems and comes with lots of extras included such as car seat adaptors; with most pushchairs you have to buy these separately.
4. Stokke Xplory
One of the highest pushchairs I've seen; it was designed this way to help promote eye contact and connection - great for getting out and exploring the world with your baby! It's also perfect for when you're out at a cafe or restaurant as your baby is at the same height as you.
5. Babyzen Yoyo
One of the most compact pushchairs...if not the most! It's so small that it fits into the overhead compartment in a plane; if you've ever flown and had to stand for hours in passport control holding your child, you will probably agree this is a very good idea. This is (like the Bugaboo Bee) one of the best pushchairs for busy city life.
As James has got older and we've got out and about more with our pushchair, I've started to understand what features we need for our lifestyle and what doesn't work for us.
When choosing your pushchair I think it's so important to jot down how and where you will be using it. It's a decision you should research and take your time over. Read lots of reviews and go to the shops to have a push.
What pushchair have you been coveting?
