3 in 1 Baby Pram, Stroller, Carrier & Car Seat

How to Pick your Perfect Pram

Woohoo!! You find out you're pregnant and you’re all excited. Not only because you are going to welcome a new life into the world, but you also get to go shopping!  With so many baby prams & stroller options available, it can be challenging to determine which one is right for you. The last thing you want is for your baby to feel uncomfortable when you're out and about.  But it’s not just bubs that need to be comfortable! Buying a pram involves so many considerations, and it's perfectly normal to feel unsure about the process. We will address the most common questions from parents. With the arrival of your new baby, we hope our information will be beneficial to you.

What's the difference between a pram and a stroller? 

Although both prams and strollers are designed to transport babies and toddlers, there are significant differences between the two.

Pram: (fun fact – short for perambulator)

  • Used for newborns – as they can’t sit up independently yet
  • Built-in features such as a seat that fully reclines
  • Bassinet that attaches with a flat base for more comfort for newborns to nap.
  • More comfortable that a stroller
  • Larger capacity in both width & length (large & robust)
  • Lower storage compartment/s to make shopping easier
  • Usually comes with large wheels & suspension



  • Should not be used for newborns
  • Seat may not recline – great if it does as you can let your toddler nap
  • More versatile, compact and lightweight
  • Suitable for toddlers (or from infants when they can sit up independently)
  • Low to the ground seating for toddlers to get in easier.

Which is Better: A Pram or a Stroller?

Since each has advantages and disadvantages of its own, the decision between a pram and a stroller depends on your personal needs and preferences. Prams are perfect for newborns or infants who need to rest flat because they are usually bigger and bulkier. They may, yet, also cost more. Strollers, on the other hand, are better suited for older babies or toddlers who can sit up because they are lighter, smaller, and easier to use. In general, strollers are less expensive than prams. The ideal choice for your family will ultimately rely on your personal needs and preferences. But you could always get all in one when you purchase a convertible model pram that has all of these multifunction in one such as our 3 in 1 Baby Pram, Stroller, Carrier & Car Seat. Ultimately, you have found the perfect pram to match all lifestyles!

When choosing a pram, it’s also a good idea to read reviews and consider your specific lifestyle needs (e.g: urban vs. suburban living, use of public transport, etc.). This will help ensure you select the best pram for your newborn’s needs.

When should I start buying baby a pram? 

The ideal time to start buying a pram for your baby depends on various factors such as your preferences, budget, and how early you want to prepare. Generally, many parents start considering pram options during the second trimester of pregnancy. This allows ample time to research, compare features, and make a decision without feeling rushed. However, some parents prefer to wait until later in the pregnancy or even after the baby is born to purchase a pram. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide when you feel comfortable and ready to start shopping for a pram for your baby.  If you want to take baby from the hospital in comfort then purchasing before bub comes is much better. This will also ease the stress of not having to go out and purchase items after bubs is here and you can enjoy all the new love.

Do you have to use a bassinet pram for a newborn? 

Using a bassinet pram for a newborn is not a strict requirement, but it is a common choice for many parents. Bassinet prams provide a flat, fully reclined surface for newborns to lie comfortably, which is recommended by pediatricians as it promotes healthy spine development and allows for unrestricted airflow. However, some strollers offer reclining seats that can be used from birth, and some parents opt to use infant car seats that are compatible with their stroller instead of a bassinet. Ultimately, the choice depends on your preferences, lifestyle, and the features that you prioritise for your baby's comfort and safety.  If you don’t need to make this decision you can always purchase a pram with all of these features in one…problem solved.


How to carry a newborn from the hospital to the car?

Carrying a newborn from the hospital to the car requires special care and attention to ensure their safety and comfort. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Prepare in Advance: Before leaving the hospital, ensure that you have all necessary items such as the pram, car seat, blankets, and any other essentials packed and ready to go.
  1. Secure the Car Seat: Make sure the car seat is properly installed in the car according to the manufacturer's instructions. It should be rear-facing and positioned in the back seat.  With the 3 in 1 Baby Pram, Stroller, Carrier & Car Seat you can use the car set in the pram and then comfortably transport baby to the car and easily secure the seat in the car without disturbing baby.
  1. Dress the Baby: Dress your newborn in weather-appropriate clothing. If it's cold outside, use a warm blanket or clothing layers to keep them cozy.
  1. Support the Head: When carrying your newborn, always support their head and neck with one hand while cradling their body securely with the other arm. If you have purchased a pram with a bassinet, you could comfortably push your bub to the car in comfort.
  1. Place in the Car Seat: If the car seat is already installed in the car: Carefully place your newborn in the car seat, ensuring that their head is properly supported and that the harness straps are snug but not too tight. Make sure the harness straps are positioned at or below the baby's shoulders.
  1. Check Positioning: Double-check that the car seat harness is properly adjusted, and that the chest clip is at armpit level. You could also use a baby mirror which is easily installed to the headrest of the back seat. These mirrors make your bub easily visible from the rearview mirror. You can check on bubs at all times without impeding your driving.
  1. Cover with Blanket: If it's cold or sunny outside, use a thin blanket to cover the car seat to protect your baby from the elements. Ensure that the blanket does not interfere with the proper functioning of the car seat or cover the baby's face.
  1. Monitor Temperature: Be mindful of the temperature inside the car. Avoid leaving your newborn in a hot car, even for a short period, as it can lead to overheating and dehydration.
  1. Drive Safely: Drive carefully and obey all traffic laws on your way home. Avoid sudden stops or sharp turns that could jostle your baby.
  1. Arrive Safely: Once you arrive home, carefully remove your newborn from the car seat and bring them indoors, continuing to support their head and neck as needed.

By following these steps, you can safely transport your newborn from the hospital to the car and home with confidence.

How big is the storage basket?

The size of the storage basket on a pram can vary depending on the make and model. Typically, prams come with storage baskets located underneath the seat. These baskets can vary in size, but they are generally designed to accommodate essentials such as nappies, baby wipes, bottles, toys, and other baby necessities. Some prams feature larger storage baskets that can hold additional items like shopping bags or larger nappy bags. It's always a good idea to check the specifications provided by the manufacturer to determine the exact dimensions of the storage basket on a specific pram model.

Where can I put my coffee? Where do I put my phone?

Indeed, many prams offer the convenience of a cup holder, perfect for busy parents who need their coffee fix on the go. These cup holders are typically attached to the handlebar or frame of the pram, providing a secure and accessible spot to place your coffee cup or water bottle while strolling with your baby. Some prams come with built-in cup holders, while others offer the option to purchase additional accessories like detachable cup holders with a holder for your phone as well. Having a designated spot for your coffee ensures that you can stay hydrated and caffeinated while tending to your little one during walks or outings.

Is it convertible or multifunctional?

This is when an innovatively designed pram effortlessly converts between a pram, stroller, carrier, and car seat, providing unparalleled versatility for every stage of your baby's journey. With easy conversion mechanisms, you can seamlessly transition between modes to suit your needs, whether it's a leisurely stroll in the park, a quick errand run, or a road trip adventure. Say goodbye to bulky equipment and hello to streamlined convenience – the multifunctionality of this all-in-one solution ensures that you're always prepared for whatever the day brings, making parenting a breeze.

Is it an essential item:   Yes

How much do I need to spend:   $75 up to $4,500

How long will it last?:   3 to 5 years

When is the right time to buy a pram?  Should I purchase it before baby comes: 

Yes.  Purchasing a set for a newborn baby does not follow a predetermined standard. While some parents rely on one large purchase during their pregnancy, others buy everything one at a time. You could purchase a multifunctional pram so that everything is all in one and only one purchase that will last your baby until they are through toddler stage.
Each approach could have benefits and drawbacks, depending on the individual. But keep in mind that investing in a pram or bedroom set is far more long-term than buying things your child will outgrow in a matter of months. For this reason, buying a pram or pushchair should be done carefully rather than impulsively.
