If you are the grandparents to be you may have offered to buy a travel system as a gift for the baby. A travel system is a way of buying the car seat, pushchair and carry cot so that they can be interchanged using the base unit that allows you to snap different items into the pushchair.
When choosing the travel system make sure mum is involved in the process. Start off by looking at the car seats as this is the area that most affects the baby’s safety. Make sure the car seat is covered by safety standards and to make the selection process easier rule out any that don’t fit into the car tightly. Also ensure the installation process is quick and easy, ones that have harnesses with 5 points are safest.
When choosing to pushchair it’s all about making sure it is convenient and portable. There are a variety of style, sizes and colours and you can choose a pushchair based on the lifestyle of the parents. There are jogging and rough terrain prams for example for the active mother. Make sure the pushchair fits in the car and look at how easy they are to navigate around shops and stores.
