    Default Pram help.

    I have a Bebe care rverse xlr. By the time bub comes DD will be almost 4. She rarely uses the pram unless we are having a big walk or big shopping day/outing as she gets tired of walking.

    So my question is should I get a toddler seat for the pram (not sure about weight restrictions yet) or is there a skateboard I could get for it?

    Or do I need to buy a new pram with better toddler seat or board?

    Help!!

    I'd get the toddler seat, it's suitable from birth-15kg and it's only $120.

    Default Pram help.

    Is 15kgs too light for a 4 year old though? She was 12kgs a few months ago, not sure what she is now.

    ds turned 4 3 months afetr dd was born but had been out of the pram for a good year before she came along so he didnt get a toddler seat . but i did get a skate board ......we never really use the parm as a babywear mostly but the skate has been used a few times
    i think 4 is too big for a toddler seat in most cases

    You should go and visit a baby shop, test some prams out and take your 4 y/o with you

    Yeah I am buying an ergo this time round but I slipped a disk in my back and have a busted pelvis so dont think ill be able to wear for too long. ATM DD is rarely in the pram BUT me or DH carry the lazy bones a lot.
