With so many pushchairs available, finding the right one that’s suitable for you and your newborn baby can be overwhelming – that’s why we’ve put together our top picks to meet a range of needs.

Babies need to lie in a flat position in their pushchair for at least the first 6 months. A lie-flat pram will support your baby’s spine and help to keep their airwaves open.

For a pram and pushchair to stay useful for more than six months, it also needs to have a good seat, be comfortable and easy to push, and manage the terrain that you cover everyday, be it pavement, grass or hills. And if you have a car, you probably want it to fit in your car boot, check if it will fit using our tool.

Shopping for two? Take a look at our favourite Double Buggies.

iCandy, Lime

With so many features, it’s hard to know where to begin to describe the Lime! The pushchair comes with a carrycot that can transport your little one safely during those early months (from birth to 9kg, approximately 6 months). The carrycot shares the frame, canopy and bumper bar of the seat unit so you have less to store when it’s time to move to the seat unit.

Whilst in carrycot mode, your child will benefit from the luxuriously soft fleece lining and mattress that are included, with a carrycot apron too that keeps them nice and warm as they travel. The carrycot is well ventilated, and so doubles up as a handy travel cot because it can be used for permanent overnight sleeping if required!

You can convert from the carrycot to a seat unit quickly and easily when your little one gets a bit bigger. In seat mode, the Lime can be used up to a whopping 25kg! The seat is comfortable, reclinable, reversible to face you or the world ahead and features an adjustable footrest and a one-touch, 5-point harness and a leatherette covered bumper bar to ensure your little one can be positioned easily and stays comfortably seated as you travel together.

Another great thing about the Lime is the unique TotalFold system which allows you to fold the pushchair compactly without removing the seat unit or bumper bar! That’s great if you are travelling or just storing the pushchair when it isn’t in use. When folded, a useful travel strap lets you lift the lightweight pushchair easily. And it really is lightweight at just 10.2kg with the seat attached. 

  • Simple to convert from carrycot to seat unit
  • Built-in ride-on board for an extra passenger
  • Superior manoeuvrability to get you around town
  • Carrycot can be used for overnight sleeping

This superb pushchair has a lie-flat recline to make it suitable for use from birth, but it also can accommodate the Maxi-Cosi Laika Soft Carrycot if you want an even cosier environment for your little one during those early months.

The seat unit can also fit a selection of Maxi-Cosi Infant Carriers, including Pebble, Rock, Pebble Plus, Citi and CabrioFix. These can easily be installed on the chassis without removing the Laika’s seat unit, extending the usefulness of the stroller by turning it into a smart travel system.

Just because the stroller is compact doesn’t mean it scrimps on the features! The rear suspension allows for comfortable travelling over rougher surfaces while the ultra-padded seat is comfortable for your little one, with a multi-position recline, an adjustable leg-rest and an extendable canopy to keep your little one out of the way of harmful sun’s rays.

For your convenience, the stroller is lightweight and easy to carry with its shoulder strap and can fold up quickly and compactly using just one hand. Perfect when you need to hold your little one and put the stroller in the boot of your car or away under the stairs.
