Answered 2 years ago

I am going to be a new mum and looking at purchasing 2 prams, one of these prams will be specifically for walking or to be used on big days out as the child gets older/travel pram overseas.

I had been thinking about the Baby Jogger city mini GT but would like to know what you would recommend for a walking/travel pram.

What pram do you recommend for a everyday pram, I have looked at Bugga Boo, Joolz and I candy but nothing has taken my fancy cost isn’t a issue. What pram would you recommend I have a look at.

I had a city mini gt. Awesome walking/everyday pram. Light, easy to manouvre, one move to open & close & stow in the car. Foam filled wheels so no flat tyres. It doesn't have the bells & whistles of heavier prams, but was awesome for me as I'm quite petite. You can't hang a nappy bag off the handle or it'll tip. Not much storage underneath. It depends on what you want.

For travel buy if & when you need it. We found it more trouble than it was worth to lug around if we flew & used carriers instead. Driving we just took the city mini & disassembled the front wheel to fit in the boot with suitcases etc.

Thanks for the response I actually feel the city mini gt is compact and would be happy to travel with it. I do know you can get more compact prams specifically related to travel though

Im disappointed with mine, its 2 years old and its trashed. Everyone else seems to love them.

OP, I just meant look at your main pram first then worry about travel ones. You'll also figure out better what suits you.

Look at 2nd hand prams. I sold mine half what I paid in perfect condition.

To other commenter, I'm sorry you had a bad experience. Sometimes a product is just a lemon!

I understand what you meant but as I said I am not getting a specific travel one I will use the walking pram for that

Another city mini gt user here. It’s terrifically light, perfect with the bassinet but I don’t like the toddler seat, which is quite flat and uncomfortable looking. My little one always seemed a bit slouched in it. Mine looks trashed too. I use a bugaboo buffalo on our farm and I love love love it. The toddler seat is easy to adjust, tilt, face forward or backwards and the accessories are great. They are quite big though and perhaps not best suited to pulling in and out of the car or manoeuvring around the city.

I have a Joolz for every day and a Mountain Buggy Nano for travel. Both are great. Maybe go in to the shop and try some out.

Thanks I have been into store as stated the walking pram would be the one we would use when we travel, I have been into many stores and nothing is really taking my fancy. I did have a look at the Joolz but wasn’t a huge fan

Well you asked for opinions and I gave you mine. Just do what everyone else does and read reviews online!

I wouldn’t buy a travel pram until you actually need it. With the current pandemic and travel restrictions in place, your Bub might have outgrown the pram by the time you can actually travel.
However, I have a baby jogger city tour. It’s awesome because it folds to carryon luggage size and came with a carry case that you can wear on your back like a backpack. But, it’s a very small pram and my kids outgrew it quickly. The seat isn’t very deep and the kids never looked comfortable it it, especially while sleeping as it doesn’t lay flat. There was another brand that folds to carry on size but I can’t remember off the top of my head what it is. It was more expensive and we couldn’t afford at the time.

Thank you as I have stated the walking/travel pram will be the same one, I don’t intend on getting a special pram to travel with. Do you have any recommendations for everyday prams as I said all the ones I have seen haven’t taken my fancy

Op have you tried looking at reviews? You could try product review and see if anyone has left one :)

I prefer to get reviews from people on here as opposed to reviews on websites as I feel a lot of those people can be paid to write what companies want. Also mostly looking for suggestions as all the prams I have looked at I am not that keen on
