When it comes to handling baby prams, there is a lot you have to think about. It’s not just the way you hold the handle, but it also refers to maintenance. Through the right maintenance, you can extend the life span of the pram, but if you do it wrong, it could lead to the destruction of the product.
1. Safety leash or harness
This is the element of the pram that keeps the baby in position and doesn’t allow the pram to tip. Also in case the harness is in good condition it makes sure that the little one won’t fall out of the pram, even if he or she starts moving around.
In case of the more modern items, breaks have a very important role to play. This is a feature that you have to check from time to time. Once you use the breaks, the pram shouldn’t move an inch. It is also important for the user to be easy to release the breaks.
To make sure that you do everything right when you start really using the pram, you should try to use it at home. Try folding it and unfolding and see how much time it takes. This might be an important factor in case you are in a hurry.
Once you get a pram you should fill the warranty card in and send it to the manufacturer. This way they will know that you have purchased one of their products. This should be done right after you have purchased the new product.
5. Locking system
This is a major safety measure, both, for your child and for you. In case the locking system is properly made, you can be sure that the pram for the baby won’t fold all of a sudden. On the other hand, in case you want to fold it, the locking system makes sure that it will stay that way until you want to unfold it.
In case you have some extra weight on either side of the pram, it will make it tip. This is why it is important not to add heavy items to the pram. In case you have to carry some weight, you should make sure that it is equally shared across different parts of the pram.
It could be important to attach an umbrella to the pram. This gains a lot of importance in case there is some chance of rain on the given day. Also this could be an important feature in case there is a lot of sun.
8. Hidden damages
Before you buy a pram, you should make sure there aren’t any damages that might not be visible at first. You have to be really careful about the elements that could harm your baby.
As you can see, there is a lot you have to consider in order to be sure that the little one is safe while he or she is out for a stroll.
