5 things to consider when buying a pram

Silver Cross Wave 2021

Buying a pram for the first time is not dissimilar to buying a car. It’s a personal choice that you make depending on your needs, and realistically, your wants! As a parent-to-be you quickly realise that there are a lot of different prams on the market, with different looks, basket sizes, frame weights and gadgets, making it tricky to know where to start looking. We’ve rounded up our top 5 things to consider when buying your first pram!

The weight of the pram 

Will you be needing to lift your pram up flights of stairs on the regular? Are you likely to be getting it in and out of the car a lot? If so, we recommend leaning towards lighter prams that will make your job a little bit easier. Our go-to option for a lighter pram is the Edwards and Co Oscar Mx weighing in at a light 10.3kg!

If you need your pram to be compact 

If you’re an inner city fam, you might not be opting for a bigger car, or perhaps you live in an apartment where space is valuable. If having a large pram seems daunting to you, there’s always compact options. Small but mighty. The Silver Cross Wing 2 is the essential everyday stroller. Easy to use and simple to store, Wing 2 features a compact one-hand fold and lightweight design.

Whether your considering a future sibling 

Thinking ahead? If a possible sibling is something that may be on the horizon at some point, future-proofing with a tandem pram is always a good idea! We love the Baccani Luso Double pram. It has Everything you need in a pram from newborn, to toddler, to multiple children, all in one luxurious bundle!

Your lifestyle 

A lot of things change when you become a parent, but it’s also so important to not forget your own identity. If you love your adventures and time outside, then there’s a pram for you too. If you’re an active family who loves outdoor adventures, the Baby Jogger City Elite 2 is the stroller for you! It’s great on all terrains, and with it’s higher upper weight limit, is suitable from newborn through to the older years.


If you’re wanting to splash out on a top quality pram that has all the bells and whistles, then we love to recommend the Silver Cross Wave. You can choose from 7 single to double configurations straight from the box, including a patented seat elevation to bring baby closer, or add accessories for 30 seating options. Offering ultimate style and comfort, Wave features our naturally anti-bacterial bamboo fabrics inside the carrycot and on the new reversible seat liner.
