How often do you make purchases on autopilot? We are so accustomed to selecting and transacting these items, never putting nearly enough thought or research into decisions. When it comes to purchasing a pram for your baby, this should never be the case. Your pram should blend into your life seamlessly, not requiring too much shuffling and chaos. It should also be a safe unit which will keep baby and parents safe and content. Diligent research and planning goes into pram selection, and we have done that for you to identify the 5 important factors to consider before you purchase your pram.
Ease of use
A pram that is easy to use and convenient for your life will make a world of difference, for you and bub. Consider all the places you wheel your pram, and figure out whether they will be appropriate destinations with your new pram. The most frequented places are the shops, public transport and the car. The car seems to be a pain point for many new parents, and this is where your ease of use will really be tested. Avoid purchasing those prams that make you feel as though you need to have a degree in physics to work out.
Quality and comfort
There are times to cut corners and secure a bargain, but that should never be the case when you are shopping for your child. Quality is essential to ensuring your little one is comfortable when they are in the pram. A poor-quality pram with no comfort will irritate your child, and won’t lull them to sleep like a quality pram can. When you are travelling domestically and internationally, your quality pram will hold your little one more than ever so quality should be your only choice.
When it comes to making investments on large items, you want to know that you are only making that purchase once. Durability assures not only longevity, but safety. A poor make or complicated design may not make it to your child’s second birthday. Wheels are typically one of the features that can lose their traction and pressure first, but this shouldn’t happen in the first few years. The fabric and materials should also last the distance, and be made from fibres that can survive the wrath of a messy baby.
Appropriate for your lifestyle
There are the loud babies, the great sleepers, and the ones who start walking months before their peers. Each one is different, but so are the lives of their parents. Finding a pram that meets your individual lifestyle is of key importance. Word of mouth is valuable, but if the person passing on the advice lives a completely different day to day - you may want to consider your options further. There are prams that are tailored to joggers, travellers and those who also have fur babies. Take your unique lifestyle into account when considering your pram purchase.
As a general rule of thumb, a company that stands behind their product with a comprehensive warranty will be the one worth investing in. This is an important factor to consider when purchasing a pram, as you want to invest with confidence. ABC Design offer a 14-day money back guarantee on any purchases made. Additionally, a two-year warranty is extended on all products that experience factory or workmanship faults. Have absolute confidence that you, and your baby, are being taken care of with the right warranties and return policies in place.
There are a lot of important factors to consider when weighing up the right pram for you. There is no one-size-fits-all, so take the time to field what features will add the most value to your life in those tough early years.
