Best Pushchairs & Prams 2018 – the Mother & Baby Awards Shortlist

Section: Shopping Ideas
Mother and baby awards 2018

Choosing a pushchair can be one of the biggest shopping decisions you’ll have to make when you’re having a baby. Do you go for the travel system that looks beautiful, or the lightweight fold up stroller that will make getting on and off the bus a breeze?

Unlike what colour you paint the nursery, you’ll use your buggy every single day, so make sure you spend some time reading reviews and making your decision. To make things easier, our panel of mum testers put some of the best pushchairs, travel systems and strollers through their paces, living with them for a month, then giving us their feedback. These are the select few that made it onto the shortlist for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018.

One of the most competitive categories in the awards, you won’t know which product won until 28th November 2018, but for now, take a look at the products our mums thought to be worth investing in. Doing the baby essentials shop? View the full Mother & Baby Awards 2018 shortlist here.
