You can buy a car for the price of a buggy these days, so my partner keeps reminding me everytime I walk over to look at the prams when I go into any shop that sells baby stuff. It’s like a magnet, I get distracted and off I go for a look. I don’t need to buy another one for my daughter, she has one, but the one she has is bulky, so I want a nice easy folding one.
The pram I had for my son was an iCandy, absolutely lovely to look at, easy to push, good basket space, but one problem I seemed to have, was my son looked huge in it! I remember testing it out and falling in love with it, as I mentioned honestly the only problem I had with it was it just didn’t last. I had expected it too last until he was atleast 2, he was out it just before he turned 1. Now yes fair enough he was quite tall, but still he wasn’t huge! Now it all comes separately unfortunately, so you buy the frame and the seat unit together, the carrycot is separate, and then you’ll probably want to get the car seat adapters so you can put the car seat onto the buggy, and then you might even want to purchase the cosytoes. If I remember correctly we spent just over £1100 for it all, very expensive! It was honestly so stunning though, we had it in the colour blackjack, and honestly, if your child isnt on the tall side I’d say it would be a good purchase.
Second time around, we went for the bugaboo cam 3, and I love it! We got it in the light blue colour, and it’s perfect. Apart from being a little bulky, and on the heavy side so it’s a challenge trying to get it up and down the stairs, but that’s honestly my only complaint. My little girl looks like she’s got lots of room left in it, she looks super comfy in it, and we just really like it. Obviously the only thing I would change is that it could fold down in one, because it’s a bit of a pain if I’m on a bus having to take it all apart to fold, so I’d much rather just get off the bus than try and fold it, but never mind, we can forgive it for that! We got a good deal when getting this one, as we got the car seat with it so saved over £100! We then just bought the car seat adapters and cosytoes and it was all worth the money. Again it came with a similar price tag of the iCandy, which is no surprise as they are pretty big competitors.
The pram I keep looking at now though is another bugaboo, the bugaboo bee5, there is just something about it that I love! And if my partner would say it’s ok to get one that expensive I so would! More than likely though we are going to get a baby jogger city, or a silvercross pop. Something that is way cheaper, and is only to be used when going on the bus, because honestly, nothing can beat my bugaboo. So it’s worth spending the money on a decent pram, as they can last years, and make the babies look comfortable, and are easy to push! They also look really good, I get lots of compliments on it! I’d recommend going and having a push in the shop before you buy, just so you know that you enjoy pushing it and like the look off it! ⭐️
