Choosing the right pram for your family: What every parent should know

Becoming a parent is a journey filled with excitement, anticipation, and a whole lot of decision-making. From choosing the perfect name to preparing the nursery, every step along the way brings you one step closer to meeting your little one. And when it comes to preparing for those first precious outings with your baby, selecting the right stroller is key. Not only is it a practical necessity, but it's also a symbolic moment that makes the reality of parenthood feel all the more real.

Choosing the right pram is an essential part of preparing for parenthood. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to determine which features best meet your family's needs. This guide addresses common questions and provides vital information to help you make an informed decision.

Purchasing your first stroller is a significant milestone that marks the beginning of your journey into parenthood. It's a moment that brings the reality of having a baby into sharp focus, as you envision all the adventures and memories that lie ahead. And when you choose a Pronto Stroller, you're not just investing in a mode of transportation—you're investing in quality, safety, and peace of mind for you and your little one.

So as you embark on the exciting journey of selecting your first stroller, take your time, do your research, and trust your instincts. After all, the right stroller will not only make your life as a parent easier—it'll also make those precious moments with your baby all the more magical.

Your first stroller is more than just a mode of transportation for your baby—it's your trusty companion on countless adventures, from leisurely walks in the park to bustling trips to the grocery store, and a safe place for baby to rest when your visiting friends or family. It's where your little one will take their first nap outdoors, explore the world around them, and bond with you as you navigate the ups and downs of parenthood together.

What Should I Look for in a Pram?

Saftey Safety is paramount. Look for prams that meet current safety standards, feature a sturdy build, reliable easy to use brakes, secure harnesses and safe design.

Lifestyle Compatibility Consider your lifestyle. Do you live in a city or the countryside? Do you need something lightweight and compact, or more rugged for off-road adventures?

Flexibility As families grow, needs change. Babies don't stay babies forever, and when they get a little bigger so can their needs and expectations from a stroller. A pram that can convert to accommodate more children, like a twin stroller, or offers adjustable seating might be a smart choice. 

Common questions...


How do I choose the right size pram?
Choosing the right size and weight of your pram depends on your daily activities and storage options. If you’re an active family that enjoys varied environments, consider an all-terrain model like the Pronto Stroller, which is designed to handle different types of surfaces smoothly, whilst also being light weight and compact for an everyday model. For those who travel frequently, a compact and lightweight model may still be appropriate so you can pop it in the overhead locker on the plane. 

Are more expensive prams better?
Big question... While higher-priced prams often offer additional features and higher quality materials, they are not necessarily the best choice for everyone. It’s important to assess which features are most essential for your lifestyle and whether those features are found in prams within your budget. Have a chat with other experienced parents and ask them! It's pretty common to hear that their first pram didn't grow with their family and they purchased a second option, meaning purchasing a stroller with future-proof features earlier on, would have actually saved them money in the long run. We like to think that Pronto has you covered from birth till, well, forever whilst still being affordable for most families. With all seating configurations built in to the stroller (so you don't ever have to purchase more) you can chop and change as you need without the additional expense.

What features are must-haves in a pram?
Essential features might include adjustable handles (for taller parents), a reversible seat, ample storage, and all-terrain capabilities so you can use your stroller at the park, the beach and around town. Pronto offers an innovative hybrid design that combines the practicality of a traditional stroller with the ruggedness of an all-terrain stroller, making it a versatile choice for any setting.

How important is it for a pram to be travel system compatible?
If you're frequently on the go, a travel system-compatible pram can be a game-changer. Capsules allow you to move the baby from car to pram without disturbance. If capsules aren't in your budget (they have a high price tag and are only suitable for up to 6 months of age), choose a pram with a bassinet, and invest in a great carseat, some are made from birth to + 4 years, so you can really get your $ worth. Pronto is compatible with major car seat brands like Maxi-Cosi and Cybex, ensuring seamless transitions during travel if car seats are non-negotiable for you.

What about longevity? Should I buy a pram that grows with my child?
Investing in a pram that grows with your child can be cost-effective in the long run. Look for models that offer expandable options like adding a second seat or adjusting to different child sizes. Pronto's adaptable design means it can serve from newborn stages right up to 100kg, and when your little ones are all grown, remove the seats and use it for weekend sports, camping trips and beach days.

Choosing the right pram involves balancing safety, functionality, and budget. By considering your lifestyle needs and prioritising key features, you can select a pram that not only fits your daily life but also offers comfort and convenience for your child. Remember, the best pram for you is the one that makes your life easier and keeps your little one safe and comfortable.

A couple more things to consider...

Versatility As your baby grows, so will their needs. Look for a stroller that offers versatility and adaptability, with features like multiple recline positions, adjustable handlebars, and compatibility with infant car seats for seamless transitions from car to stroller and back again.

Comfort and Convenience Both you and your baby deserve to be comfortable during outings and parent life will throw enough challenges at you that you don't need to be struggling with bad design AND a crying toddler. Look for a stroller with comfortable seating, ample storage space for all your essentials, and convenient features like compact folding mechanisms and adjustable canopies for protection from the elements.

Becoming a parent is an exhilarating journey filled with countless decisions, each one shaping the adventure that lies ahead. From selecting the perfect name to creating a cozy nursery, every choice you make brings you one step closer to meeting your little one. And when it comes to preparing for those first magical outings with your baby, choosing the right stroller is a decision that holds special significance—and that's where the Pronto Stroller shines.

It's not something we really talk about when it comes to prams and strollers, but it's just as important for our children as it is for us. The optimal seating position to achieve lowest pressure on intervertebral discs is backrest at 90°, and this is exactly what pronto offers. Engage the footwell and you have seating that supports your child posture, meaning they can eat, watch, read, write and just relax in safe comfort. Switch to bassinet mode and let them stretch their little legs. 

Today there are aftermarket cushions you can purchase that are used to provide this support, Eyas London have made an incredible wedge to help support your child's posture in semi-reclined prams. Take a look here...
