Choosing a pram was one of the hardest and most confusing parts of preparing for our baby’s arrival. So many factors to consider. So much conflicting advice. So many different options, colours and accessories to choose from, never mind places to buy from and budgets to *try* and stick to (cough). Add in pregnancy brain and a complete inability to decide how quickly a potentially sickie baby might ruin an otherwise beautiful white fleece liner, and you start to understand the predicament of indecisive pregnant women the world over.
In the end, I hefted my oversized bump around a succession of department stores before admitting weary defeat and letting my husband, Paul, choose, just to have done with it. His choice – the icandy apple travel system – and my first review can be found in the review section of this site, but I determined then and there that an impartial website that brought together the wealth of pram related information and reviews all under one roof would have been the answer to my prayers.
As this prayer remains unanswered more than 9 months after the birth of my gorgeous boy Luca, I’ve decided to go ahead and answer it myself. And thus, www.bestpram.co.uk was born.
Pram addicts and virgins, come hither. Your playground awaits…
