I’m now 18 weeks pregnant and it’s time to start thinking about what pram / travel system I want to order.
You’re probably thinking I’m mad and wanting to make this decision is extremely premature however, the pram / travel system is the #1 most important item to purchase as early on in the pregnancy as possible and Eurobaby recommend you have this ordered by week 20 of pregnancy.
This is because some prams/ travel systems have really long lead-times, so the sooner you can make your decision and place your order the better.
We briefly touched on prams / travel systems in Episode 1 of my Baby On The Way Series but this week we have dedicated an entire episode to the Top Recommended Prams & Travel Systems For Newborns.
I met with the baby expert that is Angelina over at Eurobaby who is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to anything newborn related so once I arrived we got straight to it and started working our way through the most popular prams & travel systems available at the Eurobaby store and online.

They were confident other parents wanted more too and, UPPAbaby was born.
