Great tools- Rocker/ Strolley/ Pram

Key difference: Baby Pram and Stroller, are wheeled devices which are used to carry children. A baby pram is like a cradle in which babies can lie, whereas a stroller is like a chair in which babies can sit upright.

Rocker:

A bouncer is a seat suitable from birth until about 6 months that doesn’t rock, but is slightly flexible so that it moves slightly when you push it or when your baby kicks as she gets older. A bouncer usually has a bar with toys and lights, and some have music and vibrating options to help soothe your baby.

Buying Tips:

  • Modern gliders take up more room, but they come with comfy cushions. Add an ottoman so you have a place to rest tired feet.
  • When you shop, give each rocker or glider a test ride. It should move smoothly and silently. You don’t want your sleeping baby awakened to a symphony of squeaks and creaks.
  • The seat should be big enough to comfortably fit you and your growing baby.
  • Make sure the headrest is high enough so you can lean back against it. You’ll appreciate that feature during those exhausting late-night feedings.
  • Choose an easy-to-wash fabric. You’ll want it to come clean after baby spit-ups and spills.
  • Choose a colour that helps calm baby. Blue or green are good color choices.

 

Strolley:

A vehicle for moving a baby around that consists of a small bed supported by a frame on four wheels.

Buying Tips:

  • To keep baby secure, look for a T-shaped buckle that goes around your baby’s waist and straps between the legs.
  • The stroller should have brakes on the back wheels and locking front wheels.
  • When buying a stroller for two, tandem models (where one baby sits in front of the other) are easier to manoeuvre than side-by-side. 
  • The stroller seat should recline all the way back for your new-born, and adjust back up to a seat as your baby grows.

 Pram:

A pram is designed to carry new-borns and younger babies, usually while they’re lying down. It’s sturdy and generally can’t be folded flat. A stroller is lightweight and collapsible, ideal for older babies. A buggy can be a pushchair or a stroller, depending on who you ask!

Buying tips:

  • If you’re always on the go, buy a lightweight umbrella stroller. Just make sure it fully reclines.
  • Need a place to hold all your baby gear? A full-sized stroller will give you more storage room.
  • It should be solid, with a wide wheel base. When you push lightly on the handles, it shouldn’t tip backwards.
  • Make sure you can open the stroller easily with one hand. You don’t want to wrestle with it while holding baby in your other arm.
  • To keep baby secure, look for a T-shaped buckle that goes around your baby’s waist and straps between the legs.
  • When buying a stroller for two, tandem models (where one baby sits in front of the other) are easier to manoeuvre than side-by-side.
