Going through our checklist of essentials needed for baby, a pram is on the top of the list. We are wanting a pram which will last from birth through until toddler age, when little girl can walk on her own. Ideally I want to find a bundle that includes everything I need so I can save a bit of money and have everything match.
We have only gone to Mothercare and Mamas and Papas to look for one as I believe these two shops are the best place and you can physically try the prams out.
I must admit, pram shopping is a lot of fun! I love playing with all the different prams and feeling like my baby is here already ☺️ my husband on the other hand, pretends he doesn’t enjoy itas you can see ⬆️ (I’m the one in green with our best friends).
We finally found the pram bundle we want in Mamas and Papas at a special price because we were at a baby event.
Here’s some information on the pram from the Mamas and Papas website:
Compact without compromise: Carrycot compatible with a big seat that gives baby space for a natural lie-flat sleep, the Flip XT’s innovative 2-way flip technology lets them face you or the world without reducing the compact fold.
Features & Benefits:
– Carrycot compatible, providing a protective and natural lie flat sleep for baby.
– Compatible with car seats, click in and out easily, so you don’t wake them.
– Complete lie flat seat for the most natural sleeping position for growing babies.
– The compact, two-way Armadillo Fold saves space whether you’re home or away.
– Chunky wheels & tread for off road adventures.
– The UPF 50+ XXL hood & air vent provides cooling protection from the sun.

The big seat gives them the room they need for a natural lie-flat sleep, while the XXL hood protects them in all weathers. Compatible with the Flip XT carrycot for those first six months; you can also attach a car seat, letting you transport baby from car to pushchair to home in just a few clicks.
There are a few bundle choices with this pram; a 2 piece, 4 piece and a 6 piece.
We have decided to go for the 6 piece bundle as it includes the frame, carry cot, car seat, ISO-fix base, cup holder and adaptors to fit the car seat to the frame. The whole set is normally £800 but we picked this up for £725 as we were at the baby event – so win win!
The deposit has been paid so we can keep the money off offer but my dad wants to pay for our pram as a gift to us so we are getting it delivered in January. I’m so excited!
