    Default Please help me choose a pram

    Hi everyone,
    I am not yet pregnant but have been saving for my dream pram ever since I started planning a family which I will be purchasing soon but can't decide on the colour. As I don't know whether I will have a boy or girl it would need to be completely unisex. The pram is a Silver Cross Balmoral which is obviously a huge expense and in my opinion an investment so I seem to be overthinking the colour decision a bit and would love outside opinions.
    The colours I'm looking at are a turquoise blue (Liberty) or a yellow (sorbet).

    Or there is the more traditional navy and white but I love anything colourful so am more likely to go for one of the first two. I'd appreciate your feedback on colours or if anyone has actually used this pram before as I can't find an unbiased review. Thank you
    ps I tried to include photos but in case they don't show up this is the link

    My advice is hold off till you have a baby. Firstly babies can be hard to come by (I sincerely hope you don't have trouble), secondly prams suck balls to store, and thirdly they could bring out a newer version of the pram which has better features between now and when you have a baby.

    I wouldn't buy a pram until you're actually pregnant and close to giving birth. The pram warranty could pass before you're even pregnant

    I would wait until you're pregnant to buy a pram.
    Ps. That pram weighs 37kg! That is definitely something you'd want to consider when choosing a pram. How does it even fold up..

    These prams are so impractical! I know, my mum bought a navy one when I had a dd (she one in the 80s for my brother and I, different day and age quite frankly) It's enormous, it doesn't fit in the car, so if she wants to take it anywhere she has to borrow my SUV, it basically is an expensive place for bub to lie or sit in the house or garden. Complete waste of money!

    They are a fantastic pram if you walk and do groceries but they are huge. I have an emmaljunga which I love but it takes up half the boot of my 4WD.

    I would wait until you're expecting because your taste might change. When DD was 3 I was desperate for a bugaboo donkey but now that we're getting another 4 years down the track I'm not so keen.
