There are so many pushchairs to choose from these days - you can find thousands at the click of a button.

However, finding the perfect pushchair to suit you and your baby's needs may be a little more challenging. Understanding the relevant safety features to look out for is important for not only your baby but also your peace of mind whilst out on your travels.

In today's blog, we will go through some of the things you should consider when purchasing a pushchair and features you should look out for that will make your travels that little bit easier and more comfortable.

Whether you are looking for your newborn baby, you’re expecting twins or you’re just looking for an upgrade, here is the ultimate pushchair buying guide to help you find the right pushchair.


What to Consider When Choosing a Pushchair

There are a few things you should consider whilst choosing the perfect pushchair that meets your specific needs and provides a safe, comfortable, and convenient ride for your baby. Here are some things you may want to consider when choosing the best pushchair.


The Age Range of Your Pushchair

Making sure the pushchair you have chosen is in the right age range is essential for your baby's comfort and safety.

Some pushchairs can range from 6-36 months, whilst others can range from 12-48 months. Finding a versatile pushchair that your baby can use from 0 months to age 4 may be your best option.

It is more cost-effective this way and saves you from having to search for a new stroller all over again a few months later.

Here at the The Lejoux Stroller, we have a pram which will fit your baby until up to four years old! The Lejoux+ Baby Pram 0 Months + has a wide selection of classic colour choices so you and your baby can step out in style, along with a matching changing bag which is the perfect added accessory for your travels.

This pram comes with a wide range of safety and comfort features too. Your baby will be safe comfortable and also look great whilst out and about. This pram is also forward-facing and parent-facing for your convenience.


Is It Easy to Use?

Is the pushchair easily foldable and lightweight? When out on the go with your baby by yourself, you may find it difficult to carry the pushchair and the baby at the same time when necessary.

If the pushchair is lightweight and easy to fold, you will be able to quickly take your baby out of the pushchair and fold it down to carry the baby and the pushchair at the same time upstairs if there isn't a ramp available when out.

If you're travelling on an aeroplane, it is a lot easier to navigate the airport with a pushchair that is easy to fold and carry.



When choosing a pushchair, be sure to consider your budget carefully. Pushchairs come in a wide range of prices, from budget-friendly options to high-end models.

You should determine how much you are willing to spend and remember that a higher price doesn't always guarantee better quality or features.

Look for pushchairs that offer the best value for your money, considering factors like safety, durability, and comfort is key.

Consider how many years you are looking to use your pushchair for to determine how much you feel is necessary to spend.

Keep in mind that there may be additional expenses for accessories or add-ons, so factor those into your budget as well however some strollers come with some of the most necessary accessories.



Your lifestyle and how you plan to use the pushchair are super important when picking the right one for you.

Think about where you'll be using your pushchair the most. Will it be city pavements or bumpy paths? Or will you be on the go a lot and pushing your pram across multiple types of terrain?

Think about any features that would make your life easier, like simple folding or compatibility with car seats. Finding a pushchair that matches your lifestyle will make your daily routine a lot easier.



If you are going to be out on the go a lot or are hoping you will be able to use your pushchair for a while, it’s important that you invest in a pushchair with high-quality materials.

Making sure the pushchair material is waterproof and durable is essential, along with making sure it has a strong and sturdy frame and wheels that can handle most terrain.

Finding a pushchair that includes all of this will ensure you are getting the best pushchair that is going to last as long as your baby needs it.
