In the end spent approx $500 on a pram which also coverts into a pusher so will hopefully be ok for the whole time. I do alot of walking so I wanted something sturdy and practical. In the end I am very happy with my purchase and am glad I looked around alot. I almost bought a pram when I was about 4 mths preg, it was on special, which I have since heard a few unhappy stories about - including that when folded it would be too long to fit across the car boot). I even asked some mums on the street about their prams if I liked the look of them - very useful hints were usually passed on from their prams point of practicality. Good Luck

i personally dont like the cheaper strollers due to the fact that everyone i see with them is stooping over and that can not be good for your back at all. you dont see many with a carry basket underneth for shopping and things, so you put them on top or over the handles and make them really unstable. if you do choose one please make sure you get one with a sturdy frame you can. my friend bought a cheap and nasty one that kept folding up while the child was in it! so if price is not really an issue i would go with best you can afford, its for your and your child comfort

the only thing that you really need is a reversable handle so that you can have baby facing you or looking out to big big world! also having the different levels of sitting positions is excellent. other than that i wouldnt worry too much about because they are only features that end up being more WORRY THAN THEY ARE WORTH!

i got the steelcraft acclaim 3 wheeler from babies galore for $299. its really good can last until bubba is 4 years old and has a strong undercarriage so i can take it to the shops an fill it with the weeekly groceries, its a bit wide but the best pram i believe have seen lots of mums with it.
