If you’re reading this, there’s probably a baby on the way – or already here. Congratulations! It also means you’re thinking about the most efficient way to get baby from A to B – without breaking the bank (or your storage space).
The easiest solution to this dilemma is purchasing a car seat and pram bundle. Having interchangeable seats for your baby that lock safely into a single, flexible frame is a great way to get around safely and conveniently.
Here are some reasons why buying one of these babies (pun intended) is a good idea.
As mentioned previously, pram and car seat bundles are typically designed to be compatible with each other.
The car seat can securely and easily attach to the pram, making it convenient to move your baby from the car to the pram without disturbing their sleep or comfort (the importance of this should NOT be underestimated).
2. Cost savings
Bundles often offer cost savings compared to buying the pram and car seat separately.
Retailers typically offer discounts or package deals to encourage the purchase of both items together, which can be more budget-friendly (always a good thing when you’re forking out for all things baby).
There’s nothing worse than needing to get out the door and not knowing where the car seat/pram/rain cover is.
Having a coordinated pram and car seat set can massively improve your daily routine. No more hunting around to find separate accessories – you’re always good to go.
Car seats included in bundles are typically selected for their safety features, as they’re often part of the same brand’s product line.
Knowing that your little one is in safe hands with a product designed to work seamlessly and meet safety standards is always a good thing.
5. Design and aesthetics
Safety first, of course – but let’s be honest: it needs to look good, too. Pram and car seat bundles often come in coordinated designs and colours.
Having a sleek, matching design which flows seamlessly across every part of the bundle give you a feel-good feeling (even on days when you’re bleary-eyed and wearing odd socks).
6. Warranty and guarantees
Some manufacturers offer extended warranties or guarantees when you purchase a pram and car seat bundle for added peace of mind.
You’ll be using this bundle for a good few years, so there’s nothing better than knowing that if wear and tear get the better of it, you’re covered for repairs.
Many bundles include additional accessories like rain covers, sunshades, or adapters for other baby gear.
Having these included in the price means they’re also covered in the warranty. Plus, if you lose or break something, you’ll be able to easily source another one without any drama.
8. Resale value
Why think about selling when you haven’t even bought it yet? Good question. The fact is that your baby will eventually swap the pram for a trike, scooter, balance bike or some other terrifyingly fast item. So how can you free up space?
Coordinated bundles usually have higher resale value, as they’re attractive to other parents looking for a complete and matching set. You can even give them away for free on places like Facebook Marketplace to make someone’s dream come true.
Don’t forget to make sure the car seat is compatible with your vehicle, and the pram suits your lifestyle and daily activities (for example, offroad hikes or jogging).
