5 Push Chair Lessons Learned From Professionals

Buying a New Born Push Chair

A high-end pushchair that’s perfect for babies due to its luxurious woven fabrics and a comfortable seat. It’s also simple to put together and can easily navigate the narrow aisles in the shops.

Select a model with a carrycot, or a combination of car seats and a carriercot that is suitable for babies. Some models have the option of a reversible model, so you can choose whether your baby faces you or the rest of the world.

Safety

The pushchair, also referred to as a stroller or buggy is among the most commonly used baby products. Safety should be the top priority when selecting a pushchair. The first thing to look for is a five-point harness. This system secures the child in the seat with five points: two across shoulders as well as around hips and between legs, and two in the middle. This system will prevent the child from sliding out of the seat in the event that the car tips over, or when driving up a kerb that is steep.

For newborns carrying a carrycot or infant prams, car seats and carrycots is vital. They need to be able to lie flat. This is to protect their spine and allows them to breathe fully. This is essential as it reduces the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Newborn babies should never take long trips in an unrestricted pushchair even if it comes with a reclining seat.

It is also recommended to buy a pushchair that is suitable from birth. The pushchair must be suitable for use with a carrycot that can lie flat or an infant car seat or pram. It should also include the seat unit that is fully reversible so that the baby can look at either the parent or the world.

The wheels of the stroller should be strong, have a good suspension, and be easily accessible. Many pushchairs come with pneumatic tyres which absorb shocks more effectively than conventional tyres and are able to run on uneven terrain.

Other accessories like a raincover, shopping baskets or pram changing bags can be useful for everyday use, especially when you are running errands with your baby in tow. Many pushchairs have an hood that can be pulled over the baby’s face to shield it from the sun or wind. Some hoods can be adjusted to accommodate the conditions.

Comfort

When it comes down to newborn pushchairs you want one that is comfortable for the baby and parent. This could include padded seats and a pushchair which is easy to maneuver and sturdy enough to handle rough terrain. Consider features like storage and protection from the weather. If you intend to use the stroller to run, or for off-road excursions, you will need an infant stroller with bigger wheels. This will allow your child maximum comfort on even the most sloping terrain.

The best pushchair for a newborn would be a pram or travel system that comes with the option of a carry cot that allows your infant to sleep in their natural lying flat position, which is vital for the development of a healthy spine and lung. Some pushchairs marketed as suitable for use from birth actually require your child to be able to stand up on their own before they can be used, therefore be sure to verify this prior to purchasing.

A bassinet is another option, providing a small crib-like area for your baby to rest in, while still being safe and secure in the pushchair. They are generally more expensive than a standard pushchair or even a traveling system, but can be worth the cost in the event that your baby is happy to use this kind of seat.

A lot of pushchairs let you “face the seat” towards you to provide reassurance or bonding. Or, you can turn your back to explore the world. They are often described as parent-facing and world-facing pushchairs. Some pushchairs offer the option of converting from single to double. This means that they can be converted into a double pushchair without the need for an additional frame.

You will need a shade for your pushchair during hot weather to protect your child from sunlight and prevent overheating. Most manufacturers include this in the pushchair bundle, or sell it on its own, so look out for this. In colder weather, you may wish to include a footmuff which will keep your baby warm and cozy. These are available in different styles, and most are machine washable.

Style

When shopping for a new push chair it is essential to take a look at the finer details, particularly as it will be among your most used baby items. Certain models are designed for rough terrain and have larger wheels with a heavy-duty frame. Others are more lightweight and are easier to maneuver, particularly when folded. Some come with adjustable seat padding, an expandable SPF canopy, and the footmuff to keep you warm in colder weather.

It is recommended that babies lay flat to aid in the development of their spine and opens their airways. It is recommended to use a pushchair or pram with a carrycot or a travel system. Some pushchairs come with a carrycot or seat unit that reclines fully. They are suitable for babies from birth. It is crucial to ensure whether this feature is present because some descriptions only refer to a reclining seat, without defining if it is a lie-flat option.

Most pushchairs let you select between a parent-facing or a world facing seat unit. This allows you to select whether your child is facing you for bonding or reassurance, or away from you to explore the world. Some pushchairs let you choose both simultaneously!

Many pushchairs are equipped with a range of accessories, like baskets and shopping trays that make it easier for parents. Some pushchairs include an inbuilt sunshade that is constructed of UPF50 or SPF+ fabrics. This helps protect the baby against the sun. Other popular accessories include parasols which can be clamped to the pushchair frame or sunmuffs that are often included or sold separately.

Budget

A new pushchair is likely be among your baby’s most expensive items so you must research and purchase within your budget. Be aware that you will be using your pushchair for a long time and it’s the most frequently used item. You should pick one that fits your lifestyle and is comfortable both for both you and your child.

You should consider purchasing a travel system that includes a carrycot as well as a seat. This is the most secure method of transporting a baby because it guarantees that they are lying flat. This is great for protecting their spinal development and opening their airways. Newborns should be transported in a lie-flat position until they are six months old.

Some pushchairs are suitable for babies and include an adjustable seat that can fully recline into a lying-flat position. This is important as it protects the baby’s developing spine and allows them to sleep comfortably during long trips. It is important to remember that not all pushchairs labeled ‘lie-flat” actually have a fully flat position. You should verify this prior to purchasing.

Look for a model with an ample basket that can hold all the baby’s necessities and other items. The basket should be easily accessible and you should not have to struggle to carry your shopping in or out of your baby’s carrycot.

Wheels can also vary between models. Some have swivel, fixed or lockable wheels that can aid in maneuvering the pushchair through different conditions. Some have larger wheels that can be more stable on rough terrain, or have PU tyres that are designed to be puncture-resistant.

You should also think about the size of the handlebar, and whether it is adjustable to fit your height. You should also make sure that the jogging pushchair folds down to fit into your car’s boot or on public transport. Some models, like the Joie Vinca, have a one-handed fold which was highly rated by our MFM home testers and has earned it a Gold Award in previous MadeForMums awards.
