Hi there, my partner is due in on the 10th of May. It will be our first child so we are new on all of this. Looking for a Pushchair/Pram system (although i am not sure if it will be better if we wait for a bit longer to get one since it is still 5 months for the baby to be born) Any advice on sites that maybe do good deals would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks to all and happy new year!!

just a little advice/suggestion..

you may want to look at "REAL" nappies, with liners etc. The average baby until potty trained (which is about aged 2 - 2 n a half) will cost you NO LESS than £500 on nappies alone.

The intial outlay for the REAL nappies/starter packs will cost you £250 so a saving in the long run - but a lot to pull out in one go

On top of nappies, you will need;

[LIST]
[*]Moses Basket and Stand (baby sleeps in your room for approx 1st month)
[*]Pushchair/Pram & Carry Cot
[*]Car Seat
[*]Highchair (I'll get the other half to recommend one. ours cost £100 - maybe a little less now, but WELL worth it!)
[*]Baby Swing (THIS one is the best around atm at half price)
[/LIST]
Bath Seat

but to name a few. Do you know what you're having?

I'll add more as/when the other half gets up, but just a little to get you on your way.

Thanks for your info. I did mention that it is our first child, but we are lucky that my partner has worked with children from newborn up to 10 y.o. for long time, so at least she knows a bit more than me. We also have the support of our families so we have already been adviced about all the things that we need. I am just not sure if it is a bit early to get the pram now since still 4.5 months to go, but the pram that she like at the moment is on "offer" (sylver cross 3D) @ £350.00 with the carseat incluided. Do you rec i should buy it or wait a bit more? Do you know ant other good pram that maybe the company has released a new model and they have the previous models at 1/2 price or anythng like it?
PS Not sure if the saving on the "real napies" is worth since you will have to incluide the washing costs and the "mess" and inconvenince. But this is just my opinion and i do appreciate your advice.

I found Kiddicare to be the best value for prams etc (plus Quido!). We bought a Graco Cleo from there and have found it to be excellent but there are loads of systems out there. I would suggest trying to get a carseat that you can get a base for, it saves so much time when taking it in and out of the car.

Remember some silvercross pram car seats require a large seat belt to loop over them , and certain cars, some fords and our peugeot 307 has a short belt that wont fit round the car seat. :thumbsup:


We use a maxi cosi cabrio car seat which is fantastic with an isofix base that we got for a good price from halfords(93 quid for base) saves you messing about with seatbelts.

Check the Silver Cross fits your car, they don't fit many apparently! Mothercare will test it for you. We planned to use real nappies but to be honest the first few months are so hard the last thing we could face doing was all that extra washing!! It was enough of a job getting our own done!

Kiddisave http://www.kiddisave.co.uk/ is also a great place for stuff ,
also Glasgow has the pramcentre which also has a website and has good prices.

Also Angelcare baby monitors are great with no interference.
If you are ordering nursery furniture mind and book it early as ours took months to arrive.

Thanks you all for your imput!!! I Really appreciate all your comments and is great to see that people are there to help you out and share their own experiences.

I would say it all depends on what type of pram you want!

And you need to consider if you will be using it on public transport, in and out of the car or walking alot!

Also do you want a carrycot on the pram?? Or use the car seat??

I would recomend Bugaboo(but expensive) they will replace any items that go wrong and usually courier it to you in 48 hours, and to steer clear of Mamas and Papas, there after sales is awlful. Also if possible dont buy from Mothercare, if something goes wrong they will send the pram off for repair leaving you with either nothing or a totally unsuitable and rather minging loan buggy!

i was on a tight budget so saved up and got the graco cleo, with the matching logico car seat and base, my sons nearly 2 now and we still love it!

Hi Tonyswan, don't know where you live but if anywhere near Manchester try a shop called Lesters - ([url]www.lesters-nurseryworld.co.uk[/url]). It was recommended to me. i'm not all that near Manchester but the silver cross pram I wanted was so much cheaper there than everywhere else that it was worth me travelling to get it. The staff were really helpful and I bought a nursing chair and bedding there as well, much cheaper than mothercare. I have the sleepover pram with linear chassis so not quite the one you're looking at but I'm really pleased with the quality of the silver cross brand. Good luck! Rebecca

we had the silver cross 3d pram in pistachio for our daughter when she was born, nearly 3 years ago. it is a lovely pram/pushchair, when you test the car seat, make sure you also test the pushchair as it is quite long when folded up. the only problem we had was with the accessory pack (changing bag, parasol and rain cover), the thread on the changing bag came undone, but toys r us replaced it straight away and we had to get the parasol replaced as where it bends, i accidentally broke it, but again they replaced it with no quibbles. we are expecting another baby next year and plan to use this pushchair again. i would def recommend buying it soon as took a couple of months for it to arrive.

hope this helps.

We have a Graco Quatro Tour pushchair in beige/cream, includes car seat,incar base,raincover, baby head support, changing bag and foot muff. Only car seat has been used a few times. We only are asking £100 for the set.

Spoke to the other half, for what it's worth her advice with prams is to hang on a little longer unless you're absolutely positive in what you're looking for, new models/styles/colours are out every month.

Her list of priorities was; easy to get in and out of car on a wet day in middle of busy car park! faces forward and backwards, washable covers, folds up nice and neatly to save space in doors/car boot.

We went for Loola for our first and it was brilliant, did all of the above plus more.

Deals are around all the time though so don't feel rushed, and remember most places will price match so don't feel tied to retailer either.

Best of luck

I would suggest going to a pram shop and testing loads out, from that you will find what you want, you will find features you like/dislike and also get to try folding/unfolding trying in the boot etc. I have to agree with trying to get a car seat with base, its ALOT easier! Watch out for the one that someone showed as a pic this didn't fit our older car ford focus as the bar going down to the floor wasn't long enough therefore useless!
I would definatly suggest testing your car seat in your car before buying!
I am now looking at my 8th (would be 10 if the other 2 turned up lol) pushchair to buy since having daughter 15months ago lol. Bit of a pram-a-holic!
I have heard the silver cross 3d systems to be good, just test in your boot before buying, i had my heart set on a pushchair when pregnant with son and went to buy it, they asked if i wanted to test in boot which i did and found it didnt fit!!!
