Dads pushing babies in pushchairs

What are the various configurations of the stroller that are available?

A straightforward stroller or buggy is not at all comparable to a travel system or an all-terrain pushchair, in terms of either price or the range of features available. If you’re undecided about which type of stroller is best for your family, read on to learn about the distinctive features of standard strollers, all-terrain (off-road) strollers, and travel systems, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each.

Carry-on or stroller that’s not too heavy

Pros

Lightweight and condensed in size Simple to navigate in retail establishments and dining establishments In general, more affordable than other types of strollers

Cons

Typically only facing one direction forward Not ideal for use off the beaten path Some are only appropriate after the first six months.

These can also be referred to as strollers, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most common type, however, is the lightweight buggies, which are popular because they are easy to carry and fold up into a small space. Some can be used beginning at birth, while others cannot be used until the baby is at least six months old because the back rest does not recline far enough or because they do not have sufficient padding.

Standard strollers are the go-to option for many parents who regularly use public transportation or who live in large towns or cities because they are convenient for zipping around town and are ideal for nipping around town.

Additionally, they are useful for travelling, as they are much easier to transport and some of them can even be folded up into a size that allows them to be carried on aeroplanes as cabin luggage.

In the past, it was unusual to come across a stroller that was also compatible with a travel system. However, in recent years, there has been a proliferation of strollers that can be used in conjunction with an infant car seat and/or a carrycot.

These are more expensive than regular buggies, but they have a lot more functionality than the others. Buggies have traditionally only had one facing option, which was forward. However, many travel-system strollers have seats that can be rotated around so that your child can either face you or the outside world. Read our buying guide to learn more about selecting the appropriate stroller or buggy for your needs.

Travel system

Pros

Appropriate from the time of birth Can face either the front or the world. Perfect if you spend a lot of time behind the wheel.

Cons

Typically at a high cost Can be quite ponderous and cumbersome. Only babies 0 to 6 months old can use carrycots, and infant car seats can be used beginning at 0 months. It is possible to purchase a travel system that is compatible with a large number of different types of pushchairs, prams, buggies, and strollers. This provides you with a variety of options for transporting your child.

Because they are compatible with Group 0/0+ car seats, these strollers can be used starting from the moment the baby is born. Read our guide to the different weight groups for car seats for more information.

Because some of them also come with a carrycot or a seat unit that can be converted into a pram, you can use them from the time your child is born and then switch to the seat unit when they are old enough. It is customarily going to cost you more for this functionality; however, if you use your car quite frequently, it is going to be much simpler and less disruptive to move your baby from the car to the pushchair if you purchase a pushchair that is part of a travel system. This is something that is going to be worth investing in.

It is important to keep in mind that young babies should not spend extended periods of time sleeping in infant car seats because this can restrict the flow of air to the baby’s lungs and can put strain on the developing spine of the baby.

It is recommended that a baby should not be placed in a car seat for more than two hours at a time, regardless of whether the car seat is in a car or attached to a pushchair. However, this does not hold true if the car seat can be reclined completely flat. Read our guide on how to choose the best travel system for more information and recommendations on whether purchasing a travel system is a better choice for you than purchasing a pushchair.

All-terrain stroller or one designed for running

Pros

Can handle uneven terrain, and has a good all-wheel suspension After giving birth, it is beneficial to spend time outside and work on your fitness.

Cons

Because of its size, it is not suitable for use on public transportation.

Can come at a very high cost.

If you are going to use a running buggy, you shouldn’t start running with your child in it until they are at least six months old.

If you want to take your baby on adventures that aren’t on the beaten path, you should consider purchasing an all-terrain or off-road pushchair that has large tyres and all-wheel suspension so that it can handle the terrain that you’ll encounter in the great outdoors.

There are also options for three-wheelers and four-wheelers. There are some three-wheel strollers that can also be used as running or jogging buggies. Even though all-terrain pushchairs are a good option for outdoorsy and active parents, it may not be possible to use them on public transportation or in crowded places like supermarkets because they are typically longer and larger than standard strollers.

Because of their size, you will need a car with a large trunk in order to transport them, and you will also need enough room in your house to store your off-road pushchair.

Investing in a newborn baby carriage or pushchair

Baby asleep in pushchair

There are some strollers that are not appropriate for use with a brand-new infant. Check to see if the seat can be used starting from the moment the baby is born or if it is recommended for babies who are at least six months old before you commit to purchasing a Bugaboo or an iCandy. Because of their size, newborn babies are unable to support their own weight, and as a result, their requirements are distinct from those of older babies and toddlers. It is essential that they lie on their backs in order to provide support for their developing spine and make it easier for them to breathe. The following are the three most appropriate choices for a newborn:

a seat that is suitable from birth must have a recline angle of at least 150 degrees.

pram configuration: by detaching the clips or unzipping the fabric, certain pushchair seats can be converted into a pram.

a pushchair that can accommodate a carrycot is the best option if you intend to use it for long naps during the day or for an entire afternoon spent in the park. Since it is best for babies to sleep on a firm horizontal base, you should select a pushchair that has this capability. The vast majority of strollers come equipped with a carrycot, which can be fastened in place either directly onto the seat or with the help of adaptors. Before using a pushchair seat in its most upright position, it is best to wait until babies are around six months old, or when they start to sit up on their own, whichever comes first.

Investing in a baby or toddler stroller that is a few years old

Toddler-in-stroller

Because of the predetermined angle of the bucket seats, strollers with these types of seating are only appropriate for infants who are at least six months old. Typically, this is the age at which a baby can begin sitting up on their own and bearing their own weight. You are essentially just tilting your child back when you recline a pushchair that has a bucket seat because the angle that your child is held in does not change when you recline the seat.

Some professionals are of the opinion that this is not the most comfortable position for your infant to sleep in. With the seat in its most upright position, travel systems that have multiple recline positions are appropriate for use beginning with the newborn stage (or if you use a carrycot). Once the child is sufficiently mature, they are able to use the seat in its most upright position.

Each pushchair that we evaluate is put through a series of tests that evaluate how well it provides ergonomic support at each stage. A pushchair is a more robust and feature-rich version of a stroller, also known as a buggy.

Some of them don’t recline far enough to be suitable for newborns, so you can’t use them until the child is at least six months old, and others can only be used with toddlers. However, there are some models, such as the Babyzen YoYo2 and the Silver Cross Reflex, that either have sufficient reclining capabilities or can be converted into a pram that can be used beginning with the newborn stage with the addition of an accessory pack.

Features of pushchairs to keep an eye out for

The second trimester can be the perfect time to start thinking about what you need to buy for your baby, including a pushchair or travel system.

When using your pushchair on a daily basis, even minor annoyances and irritations can become very frustrating, so making sure you pick the right one is essential. Read our advice first to ensure you don’t waste your money on something that’s not worth it.

Seating that can be flipped around

A reversible seat is a useful feature because many parents prefer to have their new baby face them so that they can maintain eye contact with their child. This means that you have the option to turn them to face the world when they are older rather than the parents while they are still young.

Adjustable handlebars

If you or anyone else who will be using the pushchair is a different height from your partner or anyone else who will be using the pushchair, having the ability to easily adjust the height of the handlebars will make it much more comfortable for you to push. Separate handles, which are common on strollers, have a tendency to flex quite a bit when pressure is applied to them; however, we put them through safety testing to ensure that they comply with the British Standards for handle strength. It’s possible that using a handle bar will be the most comfortable option, but a surprising number of handle bars have an oval or square cross section, which can make them awkward to use after extended periods of time.

Suspension

A vehicle that has adequate suspension will provide a more comfortable ride for your child in situations such as going to the park, walking across gravelly car parks, or going on walks in the countryside. It is possible for this to be on only some of the wheels, known as front or rear suspension, or on all four of the wheels simultaneously (all-wheel suspension).

Shopping basket size

The capacity ranges from 1 kilogramme to 15 kilogrammes, but the typical pushchair shopping basket has a capacity of four or five kilogrammes. Keep an eye out for a basket that has solid sides and provides easy access even when the seat is in the reclined position. It’s helpful to have additional storage pockets all around the pushchair as well.

Pushchair-shopping-basket

Padding

Your child will feel more supported and at ease in their brand-new pushchair if you purchase a pram that has additional padding, such as a head hugger. Check to see if the padding is only located on the bottom of the seat or if it also extends up the sides of the seat.

Swivel wheels

Swivel front wheels can move in any direction with very little pushing or pulling, and they make it easy to manoeuvre on normal ground. However, because of their ability to rotate, they can make it more difficult to move across rougher ground or gravel. Choose a stroller that has swivel wheels but also has the ability to lock them, so that you can turn this feature on and off depending on the terrain that you will be traversing with your child.

Continuity of step without break

Check to see if you will be able to walk with the pushchair using your regular stride. This is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you are shopping for a pram. Also, be careful not to cut or scrape your shin on the rear axle, the brake bar, the shopping basket, or any of the other accessories.

Backrest recline

Because newborns are unable to bear their own weight and must be placed in a lie-flat position, the angle of recline on the backrest of your stroller is very important. The strollers that recline to an angle of at least 150 degrees on the most upright setting are the ones that are recommended for use with newborn babies. Some mechanisms for reclining seats are smoother than others, and the very best ones can be operated with just one hand and are simple to use, even when a child is sitting in the seat and adding their weight to the vehicle. There is a lever, buttons, a back bar, and either a strap or drawstrings that can be used to recline the chair. The third and fourth options are typically the most challenging to use.

Folding

It is absolutely necessary to have a folding mechanism that is simple to operate. Since you’ll be folding the pushchair on a daily basis, you should give it a test run before making the purchase, and you should steer clear of models that require you to remove accessories before folding it. Although a great number of strollers advertise that they can be folded with one hand, our tests have shown that this is not always the case.

Folding-pushchair

Brake pedals

The ones that are the best have large pedals that are labelled in a way that is easy to understand, and they are also effective. Be wary of brake pedals that protrude outward, as these can get caught on the stair treads, as well as a bar that connects the brakes, as this can get in the way of your feet when you’re walking. Keep your toes and shoes from getting scraped by looking for brakes that can be activated and deactivated with a simple press of a button.

Dimensions and morphology

It can be challenging to push, lift, and otherwise manoeuvre pushchairs that are cumbersome and heavy. A quality stroller can be on the large side without being awkward to push.

Rests for the legs and supports for the legs

Smaller children who are unable to reach the foot rest of the pushchair frequently find that their lower legs are suspended in the air off the end of the seat of the pushchair. Your toddler’s legs will be more comfortable when you use an adjustable leg rest because it offers good calf support and typically has between two and six positions to choose from.

Compatible with various travel systems

It has all the advantages of a stroller, in addition to the possibility of attaching a car seat to it. Travel systems, which can be used with a car seat that is either in the Group 0 or Group 0+ category, are a good option for parents who drive their children frequently because they allow you to move your infant from their stroller to the vehicle without waking them up. Remember that the most recent recommendations for child passenger safety state that infants should not be confined to their car seats for more than two hours at a time.

How much does a high-quality stroller typically cost?

The prices of strollers can range very widely. You can purchase a pushchair for any amount between less than one hundred and more than one thousand pounds, but in some cases, you will be purchasing a prestigious brand name and luxurious fabrics rather than a functional pushchair that is simple to operate and manoeuvre. The average expenditure reported by 1,500 parents with children younger than five years old in a survey conducted in March 2020 was £378. More parents (39%) spent between £101 to £450.

iCandy, Stokke, Bugaboo, and Silver Cross are examples of some of the more upscale brands of strollers that can be quite pricey. Because we were able to locate Best Buy strollers for as little as $150, it is clear that you do not necessarily need to spend a significant amount of money in order to obtain a high-quality baby carriage.

Should I go ahead and purchase a used stroller?

Best pram and pushchair buying tips

If parents are looking to cut costs, there is a sizeable market for used strollers, also known as pushchairs. When our survey of 1,500 parents in 2020 was conducted, we found that 38 percent of them will sell their pushchair via an online marketplace when they are no longer in need of it. Common places where they are sold include local Facebook groups, eBay, Gumtree, and Shpock. You might also be able to purchase one from a friend, a family member, or a member of a local mom’s group. There is even a chance that Freecycle is offering one completely free of charge. If you decide to go this route, it is in your best interest to purchase it from a location that will allow you to examine it before you hand over your money. Keep an eye out for sales that specify “collection only.” In addition to that, you should check or go over the following:

Check the seat padding, the hood, and the basket for any areas in which the stitching may be coming loose, as well as for any tears or holes.

Wheels: Depending on how old the stroller is, those wheels may have experienced a good deal of wear and tear; therefore, you should inspect them to make sure they are not coming loose or appear to be rickety. Is there evidence of rubber cracking near the rims of the stroller’s pneumatic tyres, in the event that the tyres are equipped with these? Furthermore, does the stroller come with its very own air pump? It’s a good idea to give the stroller a quick spin around the block to check that the wheels are properly aligned and that it steers easily.

Chassis frame: Run your eyes (and hands) over the frame of the pushchair to check for any cracks that could become weak spots over time or any dents that could affect the smoothness of the fold. Chassis frame:

The folding and unfolding process: how difficult is it to fold and unfold the item? You should give the mechanism a few tries to ensure that you are familiar with it and that it does not become caught at any point in the process.

Brake: Check to see that the pushchair can still be stopped safely using the brake, especially when going downhill.

Additional accessories may come packaged with the pushchair, such as a rain cover or bumper bar; check to see whether or not these are included. Inquire of the vendor as to whether or not they also purchased any additional accessories that would go with the pushchair such as a carrycot, footmuff, or car seat adaptors.

Should I be concerned about purchasing a used stroller for my child?

When compared to those of a car seat, the dangers associated with purchasing a used pushchair or pram pose a much lower threat to the child’s safety. However, it is important to check to see if the model you are considering has been recalled for any reason related to product safety. You are able to accomplish this by going to the website for Trading Standards. You should also check out our list of pushchairs that you should not buy to see if it is included there. The fact that many of our pushchairs with the lowest scores have problems with their strength and durability is a red flag that should be considered if you plan to purchase a used one.

What other options do I have for my old stroller?

There are a few things you can do to clear up some storage space, and if you also happen to have an unused stroller or two lying around, you might be able to make some extra money in the process.

There is a thriving second-hand market for pushchairs online, particularly when it comes to models that are in good condition and come from popular brands like Bugaboo, Mamas & Papas, iCandy, and Silver Cross. If you want to sell your pushchair, you can do so by selling it online. Remember that you need to factor in the selling and listing fees as well.

Utilize the NCT as well as sales of previously owned baby goods. As an alternative, you could attend a Nearly New sale that is organised by your neighbourhood National Childbirth Trust (NCT) group. You can sell unused baby products there (less a commission that is paid to the NCT or a set fee), and you can also socialise with other parents at the same time. If there aren’t any in your area, you can look online for information about upcoming garage sales and other similar events. Donate your used stroller to friends and family. Donating an unused stroller that is still in working condition to close friends and family members is a fantastic way to reuse your buggy, and the recipients will be grateful for the assistance they receive from a reliable source.

Freecycle your pushchair: If you have tried to sell your stroller without success but it is still in good working condition, you may want to consider giving it away to people in your community who are in need of it through a community-based re-use programme such as Freecycle or Freegle.

If everything else fails and your stroller is not in a condition where it can be given to someone else, you should get in touch with your local council to find out what recycling or disposal options are available in your area. Because strollers are constructed from a variety of components, it is possible that you will need to disassemble the stroller before you can throw away its various parts.

It is unfortunate that the seat unit must be removed before the pushchair can be folded, and it can be a bit of a hassle to convert the seat into a carrycot mode. Other than those two drawbacks, however, it is an excellent pushchair.

Pros Excellent storage basket
It is possible to transform it into a double stroller while maintaining its relatively compact size.
Large and comfortable cushioned seating
Hood is simple to operate and offers adequate coverage.
Seating that can be flipped around
Compatible with various travel systems
Cons
Converting it into a carrycot can be a pain.
When folded, it is cumbersome and heavy.

Travel system for pushchairs that faces the world and the parent

The conclusion is that this travel system is premium and versatile.

One of the best strollers on the market is the Cybex Priam. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, the Priam has a number of appealing features, including the fact that it is simple to manoeuvre and effortless to push over a variety of terrains, that the seat unit is roomy and comfortable, that the storage basket can be expanded, and that it is simple to switch the direction of the seat or exchange it for a car seat or carrycot. It is a convenient pushchair for day-to-day use, and the fact that it can be customised in such a wide variety of ways is likely to sway the decision of some parents. However, keep in mind that it is cumbersome and heavy when folded, and that you will need adequate space at your residence to store it.

One-handed fold
Seating unit with a reversible back
Large hood Effortless recline with one hand
Versatile
Simple in terms of manoeuvring
suspension on all four wheels
Large and comfortable seating area

Travel system for strollers with a world view

The conclusion is that the ride and handling were satisfactory.

A stroller that is a Best Buy pick is the Cybex Eezy S. It is an excellent option for day-to-day use because of its low weight, small size, and simple manoeuvrability. It is recommended for use in urban areas rather than for long treks through the countryside, and it is suitable for travel on all modes of transportation. Because the height of the handlebar cannot be adjusted, it is important that you test out the pushchair in order to determine whether or not it is the right height for you before making a purchase.

Pros
A pleasant ride regardless of the terrain.
Folding it up with one hand is simple and easy.
Seat units are simple to switch out when using a car seat.
A seat of a reasonable size
Adjusting the height of the shoulder strap as well as the length of the strap is simple Cons
Jerky hood
The handlebar cannot be adjusted and is located quite low.
If placed on a slope, unstable.
No leg rest
The seat could use some additional padding.

Comparative analysis reveals a convenient travel system

The Quantum is a high-scoring pushchair; it ought to be a Best Buy because it is effective at what it is designed to do; it is simple to operate; and it comes with some helpful features, such as a seat that can be converted into a carrycot. The instructions, on the other hand, contain a significant error: they state that the seat unit can be used with a baby as young as three months old, despite the fact that it cannot be used with a baby of this age because it is a bucket seat, the angle of the backrest does not exceed 150 degrees, and the harness is not large enough to safely hold a baby of this age. Because of this, we are unable to recommend it as a Best Buy. On the other hand, we will report our findings to Diono when we are finished.

The product is both functional and simple to use.
Good manoeuvrability
Carrycot that can be converted from the seat Pros
Adapters for bulky car seats can be installed in the wrong direction.
This is not a genuine one-handed fold.

The verdict is in, and it’s fantastic! It’s an all-terrain pushchair.

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT 2 is a tried-and-true model in the company’s extensive product lineup. Since our initial review of it in 2012, when it was deemed a Best Buy pushchair, it has continued to earn and deserve that designation. This version has the same features that have made the City Mini such a popular pushchair – a roomy seat, excellent manoeuvrability, and a compact fold – but it is also a great ride on a variety of surfaces, which has helped to make it so popular.

Pros Provides a safe and comfortable ride for the infant Plenty of room for the child to expand within the seat
Appropriate from birth Folds up compactly and can be stored in a trunk
Adjustable handlebar
Excellent protection provided by the hood
Folding with one hand
Cons
The foot rest is difficult to adjust, and there is a metal bar that restricts access to the storage basket.
Handbrake is a bit stiff
On the heavier side of things.
