Car Seats Buying Guide

What's your lifestyle?

This is really important to think about when you're looking at pushchairs - if you get the bus or train a lot or you're going to be carrying stuff up loads of steps, then you're going to need something lightweight and foldable. If you're always zipping round in the car you need to know that whatever you choose is going to fit in your boot (along with room for all the other stuff!). Your best bet is a multifunction travel system that is good for walking round the shops too.

Plus you need to think about where you're going to put it - it's no good getting one that everyone's going to end up tripping over at home so make sure it'll slot away neatly in your hall, kitchen, bedroom or porch

What's best for baby?

Next you need to think about what age you'll need the pushchair from - if it's for your newborn the pushchair needs a full lie back position or you may want to think about a carrycot or pram. You might also want to think about getting a model that'll adapt as your child grows, which'll save you having to buy a new one later on.

The most important thing really is making sure baby's cosy and warm so head huggers, foot muffs etc. are a really good buy. And don't forget your rain cover, this is an essential bit of baby kit as it'll protect baby from the unpredictable Great British Weather!

Colour - this is about personal taste but maybe think about getting a colour that you can use again if you have more kids, and also the practicalities of keeping it clean.

Pushchairs Types


Strollers are light weight, compact and have a great easy fold mechanism. Great for holidays time or nipping down the shops. Many strollers have a multi position lie back so your little one can have a nap while you're out and about. Most are suitable from 6 months.


Buggies are the most popular everyday option. They have sturdy frames and robust wheels plus great suspension for a comfy ride. his option is suitable from birth with buggies featuring a full recline, comfy padded seats and loads more extras.

3 wheelers

These are a great option if you're going off-road! The single front wheel makes it easy to push in more difficult places - perfect if you want to get active as a family.

Parent facing pushchairs

Parent facing pushchairs mean the seat unit faces the pushing parent - that means baby can interact with mum or dad and enables you to keep an eye on your little one.

Travel Systems

The travel system is your all in one do everything pushchair. Taking your baby from birth to toddler, this is a great option for both your baby and your budget!

A traditional option that has had some modern updates. Prams can be used both parent or forward facing either way you will be able to keep an eye on your little one and have great interaction.

Twins & Tandems

Tandems are great for transporting your baby and toddler with one seat in front of the other. The front seat can be used for the older child and the back seat from birth.
