How to choose the right pushchair for your child’s needs

When you have over 500 pushchairs to choose from, picking one is no easy task. You have to choose between three or four wheels, buggies or pushchairs for newborns, built for the city or built for the countryside, adjustable footrest or backrest. And as if that wasn’t enough, your needs change depending on how old your child is. Thanks to our filter options, you can now narrow down your options and find the right pushchair for your little one.

Five filter tips

The filter options are on the left-hand side of the pushchair product page. We don’t think options such as brand, intended use, number of wheels, maximum weight per seat, cover colour or themed pushchairs need any further explanation. We’ve compiled more information on the other five filters below.

1. Pushchair features

By filtering according to the features you want, you can narrow down your pushchair choices pretty quickly. For instance, if you are looking for a compact pushchair or one suitable for a newborn, select the filter ‘compact folding’ or ‘newborn’. The ‘upgradable’ filter is for pushchairs you can add a baby seat to in order to make them suitable for newborns. ‘Carrycot compatible’ means these models can be combined with a carrycot (with or without adapter). Select the ‘duo option’ filter if you need a pushchair that can accommodate several children.

2. Types of pushchair

This is how we distinguish our pushchairs:

  • Buggies are usually umbrella-like structures that fold up compactly. They are suitable for travelling or for in the city. You can easily fit a buggy into any boot, and they can even be taken on the plane or used for sightseeing.
  • Newborn pushchairs are suitable from birth. These usually come in a set with a carrycot or you can buy them separately.
  • Double and tandem buggies are for families with more than one child. Depending on the model, you can attach a bucket seat and/or a carrycot.
  • Joggers are easy to push on forest trails and gravel paths thanks to the large pneumatic wheels. Some models are made specially for sports.
  • Combi pushchairs come with the usual child seat as well as a baby seat for newborns and a carrycot so little ones up to 6 months can lie down. They’re often called trio sets.
  • Travel systems include a baby seat you can fit to your car. The baby seat is easy to attach and is perfect for travel.

3. Compatible baby seat brands

Have you already bought a baby seat or got one as a present and now you need a compatible pushchair? This filter lets you see which baby seat brands you can use with each pushchair. All you need to do is select the baby seat brand, the pushchair you’re interested in and any additional requirements. Please be aware that you need an adapter to attach baby seats to some pushchairs. The relevant adapter is always linked in the accessories section below the product.

4. Wheel type

Pneumatic wheels are best for forest trails and gravel paths. They give the pushchair improved suspension and offer more comfort for your child. If you use your pushchair almost exclusively in the city or on asphalt paths, we recommend rubber or hard plastic wheels. They are often slightly lighter than pushchairs with pneumatic wheels.

5. Brake type

Almost all pushchairs come with a locking brake, which can either be on the slider above or underneath as a foot brake. Use the filter option if you have a preference.

Fed up with all this filtering?

Our product manager Ümmü Baskin has put together a list of nine pushchairs to give you a look at what different models have to offer. This may help you more than the filters.
