When it comes to buying a pram there is always the concern of whether you’re making the right choice. It’s difficult to know what to look for and even more difficult to know what’s a good buy. There are some key things you should pay attention to before making your purchase. Having this prepared can help keep you organized in your search. The main thing to consider is the overall safety and comfort of your child.
Things you should look for:
- Is it easy to use?
- Is it the right size?
- Does it have the features you need?
- Does it come with the accessories you need?
- Does it have weather protection features?
Make sure you ask yourself these questions with each option you look at.
How Do You Know You’re Covering The List?
Now that you have your checklist of what to ask yourself it’s time to move to the next step. How do you get the answers? Even more importantly how do you get them in a way that gives you confidence and assurance in your final decision? There are 3 main methods to start deriving your answer from. You want to use these carefully and thoughtfully as some of your questions may be answered with one method or you may have to use all three to come to a final decision. Remember that you will have to shop single-mindedly ie. what works for someone else and their family might not be the best fit for yours.
Test out each pram that you consider. Open it up, close it, and take it for a spin. The best way to know how it will function in real-life is to put it to some real-life tests. If allowed, see how it fits in your car, how easy is it to get in and out of the vehicle. As you push it along the store visualize yourself on one of your walks. Does it have a space for your and your baby’s bags? Is there a space for your phone or coffee cup? How do the wheels feel? Is it heavy and hard to maneuver? All of these things should be in your mind during your testing project. Make that you test based on your needs.
