Compact Prams & Strollers Online
Compact prams are designed to reduce the weight of the frame without sacrificing comfort, mobility or safety. They prioritise a light weight and less moving parts to make storage and travel easier and quicker.
A compact baby pram is an ideal start for newborns and young infants and will carry them through the early months of their lives. Once they are old enough to sit up unassisted, babies and toddlers can move to bigger strollers and prams. The light weight of strollers, like compacts, makes them easy to transport and store and an ideal option for active parents.
Strollers, which generally face outward, provide increased interaction with the outside world and can play an important role in furthering your baby’s or toddler’s language and social development.
Choosing a compact pram for your car
The first question many new parents have when buying a compact baby pram is "will it fit in my car?” Compact models are designed to be easily folded so generally you won't have a problem fitting them in the boot of just about any size car. If you're unsure check the specifications of the pram and measure out the space in your boot.
For example the Baby Jogger mini city pram (City Mini GT 2 Carbon model) has dimensions of 109 x 65 x 104 cm making it suitable for most parents on the move. With a one-hand compact fold, hand-operated parking brake and an adjustable handlebar it offers the ultimate in convenience. Plus it can convert into a travel system using the included car seat adapters.
A few considerations for newborns
Newborns need to lie flat so choosing a pram that is compatible with a bassinet is a good idea. Newborns also like to be able to look at you as you push them so a reversible seat is a desirable feature as well.
For example, the Silver Cross Coast Flint is a lightweight, convertible pram suitable for babies and toddlers from newborn up to 25kg and features a reversible seat which allows baby to face you or face forward. A bassinet lined with an antibacterial fabric is available (sold separately), plus it can be converted from a single to a double pram with 27 different configurations, making it a stand-out for versatility.
When buying a compact or mini city pram for your newborn keep in mind that babies do, of course, grow...so choosing a model that will grow with your child makes good economic sense. The City Mini GT is suitable for children from newborn up to 29.5 kg so will adapt to your child's changing needs.
Prams and strollers are designed to carry some very precious cargo so of course the safety of your baby is a primary consideration. All models sold in Australia must meet specific Australian and New Zealand safety standards. They should be solidly constructed with a sturdy frame, include at least one parking brake, and be fitted with a harness that securely restrains your child.
Here at Baby Bunting, Australia's leading baby shop, safety is extremely important to us...you can be sure that any model you choose not only meets Australian regulatory standards but our own exceptionally high standards for quality and durability as well.
