The Best 11 Baby Prams in Australia in 2022

Can you put a newborn in a pram?

Yes! Many prams are made for use from birth (with a newborn bassinet insert) until children reach a certain weight, and this is different with each pram. Many parents also choose to buy a bassinet to use in place of the traditional seat for the first few months of baby’s life. This is a flat bed-like seat that allows baby to lay back. Some parents also choose to use a capsule for the first few months of the baby’s life, as these are smaller than traditional pram seats and allow you to strap baby in. They are also designed to clip in and out of the car seat and the pram, making for easy transfer. It's important to consider a wide range of prams and strollers before making your final decision.

What is the best pram for a newborn?

The best pram for a newborn is the one that best suits you and your lifestyle. There are so many different designs, weights and functionality out there, so it’s best to have a think about how you’ll be spending your days and how you’ll be using your pram day-to-day so that you can better narrow down your search.

How do you know which pram is right for you?

Your pram will be one of your biggest and most important investments when it comes to preparing for your baby’s arrival. While prams are all made for the same reason, it is important to remember that they’re not all created equal. It’s integral that you take a few for a spin before you buy, and choose one to align with your lifestyle. Here are some of the factors to consider before choosing your newborn pram Read more below...

Pram weight:

Pram weight is an important factor to consider, especially if you’re going to be lugging your pram in and out of the car or home (if you live in flats without a lift for example) every day. You have to consider whether you’d like a more lightweight pram you might eventually like to jog with, or are happy with something a little heavier to peruse the streets and the shopping centres.

Compactness:

Take a gander at your car, will the pram you’re eyeing off even fit in the boot? Likewise, where are you planning to store it in the house? Checking out how compact a pram can become is essential if you’re tight on space. Also, how wide is it? Are you going to be able to manoeuvre it easily? These questions are all important to consider when you’re looking for a suitable pram.

Storage:

Are the storage compartments adequate for the things you’re going to need to have with you? Is the storage compartment easily accessible when your baby is strapped in? It’s a good idea to talk to mum friends or research what you’ll need in your baby bag to see if the storage in your pram will suffice.

Safety:

All prams and strollers available to buy in Australia have to adhere to ACCC product safety standards, these include the inclusion of a tether strap, a safety harness, a waist and a crotch strap and one or more parking devices that limits the movement of the pram or stroller. You must also always read and follow individual manufacturer’s usage instructions. You can find the full list of ACC pram and stroller requirements here.

Age recommendation:

Will the pram you’re looking at grow with your baby? If you’re looking to spend a little more and have your pram go the distance, you need to consider whether when your baby grows and weighs around 13-14kgs, whether the pram will still be big enough. Most prams come with an age recommendation, either suitable from birth to a certain age weight range, or six-months to a certain age or weight range. Prams that don’t accommodate from birth will more than likely offer a bassinet attachment that you’ll have to buy separately.

Recline:

Depending on how you plan to spend most of your days, how much your pram can recline can be pretty important. If you’re a regular café goer, you may want baby to be able to almost ‘sit’ at the table with you. If you’re foregoing a bassinet, you may want your pram’s seat to be able to recline as close to ‘flat’ as possible, so that he or she can get a comfortable shut eye. You may also find that the more reclining options the better, as you haven’t met baby yet and can’t predetermine which positions they’ll find the most comfortable. More options means more chance of finding something that works!

Functional extras:

Most prams come with some decent add-ons that can be used with your pram, so it’s a good idea to do a little research to see if you can purchase a cup holder, or a rain cover, or a pram caddy to hang off the handle to hold your phone and wallet. While not all of these will be necessary for you, it’s worth factoring a few of these extras into the total cost of your pram.

Real customer reviews:

“We took ages to look into a pram as it was one of our only big ticket items. We are so glad we got the Stokke Xplory. We have the all black version which is sleek and looks great and the height and width of this stroller is fantastic, high enough for great interaction, museums, city and garden walks, galleries and zipping through smaller aisles and elevators, converting it into a high chair and in day to day life. My child is so comfortable in his chair and really enjoys being up high and seeing the world. The bag is deceptively large and we put a backpack on the other side so we can use the pram bag for shopping. Fits in the car boot easily with room to spare and super easy to take apart. All in all, money well spent.” - Kushla 

 

“- Very satisfied with my pram, very easy to move around, not too bulky or heavy. 

- Pram has only 2 parts making it easy when packing away or placing it in a car.

- 3 adjustable seating settings taking your child through their stages baby/infant/toddler. - very easy to clean, just wipe away !” - Mfly

"Absolutely love our Oscar Mx. From the incredible quality of material to the ease of use in the design, it’s the first pram I’ve ever owned and I will never need anything else. I love all the options for the liners and hood covers so you can always get new ones if you want to change up the design and makes for easy cleaning too. It is so easy to fold and I love that it’s front facing or parent facing, that you can use it from newborn with the insert and also attach the carry cot to it. It’s honestly a dream come true and so many people have commented on how amazing it looks and when they use it are impressed with how user friendly it is. It is also super easy to adjust the straps. I also use it for running and you can lock the front wheel for this too. If you’re wanting a pram that does it all I highly recommend getting the Oscar Mx." - Kim
