When choosing your pushchair, there are 3 things that you need to be aware of, your lifestyle, budget and the childs needs. Do you do lots of off road walking? Do you go to the shops a lot? Do you use public transport? Size and weight? Adjustable handles? 3 or 4 wheels?
How much do you want to spend? Do you want a package with all the buggy accessories included or would you prefer to accessorise separately as and when you require them? Packages tend to be cheaper than buying everything separate, this is designed for people who are on a budget or just want an easy purchase. Obviously buggy prices range from very little up to a huge amount, these being the designer or well-known brands.
If you have a new born, you must make sure the pushchair goes back into the lying down position. Would you like to be able to adjust the buggy, so you can see your baby? What kind of fabric do you want your buggy made of? Do you need it to be waterproof?

So in summary, make sure you do lots of research before your baby comes along. Planning is the most important part, everything else will just fall into place and feels natural. Buggy accessories are such important purchases, designed to make it easy and safe for you to get out and about with your baby.
