When should I buy a pushchair if I am pregnant?

This varies from person to person. Some people like to have everything picked and paid for well in advance but others like to wait until closer to the due date or even after in some cases.

We would always advise talking to us if you are planning to leave it to later to make sure that the colour or model you want is in stock to avoid disappointment.


Are pushchair prams suitable for newborns?

Yes, most prams are suitable from birth – 6 months. It is always good to check this as there are some options that can’t be used until 6 months.


Are pushchairs free on Ryanair flights?

At Baby Elegance we have a wide range of pushchairs for all budgets. With brands such as Baby Elegance, Nuna, Quinny and UppaBaby to name a few. We have all you need for your bundle of joy and our team of experts will be happy to run through the options with you.


What should I look out for when buying a pushchair?

Look for things that suit your needs. If you live outside a city you might want something suitable for long walks on various path/road finishes. Living in a more urban area you might be inclined to go for something more lightweight and capable of compact folding for transport. Whatever you need we have a pushchair for you.
