The best prams, pushchairs and buggies of 2022 tried and tested by new mothers (and their babies) (2022)

The Telegraph's newest mothers test the best prams, pushchairs and buggies (sometimes called strollers) for comfort, style and ease of use

The best prams, pushchairs and buggies of 2022 tried and tested by new mothers (and their babies) (1)

Which is the best pram for your baby? A simple question, seemingly, that turned into a daunting task when researching my options for baby transport. As a first-time mother, did Iwant a model that was robust for town and country terrain, maybe even a running buggy – or something lighter and more compact for the city?

If you’re choosing the best buggy or pram, bear in mind this is one of the biggest investments you’ll make for your baby. The best pushchair systems with all the bells and whistles can set you back more than £1,000 – although you can pick up a cheap and cheerful stroller for less than £100.

I was after a versatile set-up that could manage the rural setting in which I live, but also something that folds down easily given I travel a lot. I wanted a frame that converts to a double buggy for baby number two, should one make an appearance, so I knew I’d have to splurge on one system that would last the duration. To help me choose, I turned to Millie Poppins, a baby expert and motherhood mentor who has been working in the field for over a decade. My first question was about the terminology.

What is the difference between a pram, a pushchair, a buggy and a travel system?

“A buggy and a stroller,” Millie explains, “are the same thing; a fold down unit for older children who can sit up unsupported. These tend to be lightweight and great for travel, especially in airports right up to the gate.

“A pushchair is a little sturdier. Many pushchairs can fold completely back so that when it comes to napping, your infant is supported in a horizontal position. In the early weeks and months, however, you will need to use a bassinet attachment so that your baby is laying completely flat inside. A pram, in other words.

“A travel system incorporates all these attachments, and often a car seat, too, which gives you everything you need from birth to toddler on the same frame.”

What kind of pram do you need for a newborn?

"A model with a bassinet attachment is always best for a newborn, allowing your baby to lie flat and cocooned for the first four to six months, but they are not essential. Some parents choose instead to ‘babywear’ with slings or carriers until their little one is developmentally ready for the pushchair.

"A bassinet on the frame is always a good option, though, if you do lots of walking and venturing about. This way, you can easily attach a baby change bag for easy access and store items in the basket underneath (ideal for supermarket runs)."

How we tested the best prams and pushchairs

Millie’s advice is never to buy a pram or pushchair without trying it out first in-store: “Mamas and Papas or John Lewis have an incredible selection of all the leading brands and styles,” she says. I asked her what to look for when hands-on testing.

“Consider how easy it is to fold down, for putting in the back of the car or storing at home,” she says. “Compact options are great for lifting in and out of a vehicle, but they can feel harder to push, especially on your wrists and when navigating rough terrain. There is also the risk of the system tipping if you hang a bag or some shopping onto the handlebars. If you know you will be carrying more gear, I would opt for something much sturdier with bigger wheels and a larger base to attachment ratio.”

Taking all these factors into account, I and my fellow testers, all new parents, put this year’s models through their paces. This involved assessing how easy the units were to assemble and switch between formats, how compactly they folded away for storage and how they performed in different settings; for example on pavement, grass, gravel as well as up and down stairs.

Best prams, pushchairs and buggies

1. Silver Cross Reef

£895, John Lewis

Best overall

We like: Sturdy and sophisticated, with royal credentials

  • Birth to 22kg (approx 4yr old)
  • Weight: Medium (12.5kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: Medium
  • Folding and converting: Easy (after initial difficulties)

Even after a month of testing, my partner and I found it hard to choose a winner from this year’s crop of prams and strollers. But we eventually settled on Silver Cross, famed for their old-fashioned ‘Balmoral’ baby carriage – the royal family's pram of choice for more than a century.

This is the Reef, their newest iteration and far more practical (not to mention one third of the price). It still features luxurious fabric and elegant chrome and faux-leather touches and, of all the seats I examined, it has by far the best cushioning. My cooing mother described it as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of pushchairs. The magnetic ‘Genius harness system’ is definitely a Rolls-Royce touch, making the clicking and unclicking uniquely smooth and satisfying. Overall, it was the one I most wanted to show off my baby in.

Unlike the other brands I tested, the carry cot bassinet is sold separately, costing an extra £275, but as you’d expect for the price, it is supreme in quality, with the softest mattress and lovely matching quilted cream interior. Uniquely, it collapses down for easy storage but is also approved for overnight sleeping and so doubles up as a moses basket, making it ideal for travel.

In fact, elegant features aside, the Reef was not love at first sight for me. Though its large tyres and four-wheel suspension system are designed for all-terrain and passed all our tests on that front, it’s not quite as sporty when navigating tough ground as the others I tried and it was initially the trickiest for me to work out how to fold down.

Once I got the hang of it, however, its one-handed mechanism actually turned out to be the smoothest to fold and the most compact to stow. The Reef’s also reasonably eco-friendly, with vegan leather accents and outer fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles. All this taken into account, it won us over as the best premium option.

2. Mamas and Papas Ocarro

£849, Mamas & Papas

Best travel pram

We like: Stylish, good quality, user friendly – an excellent all-rounder

  • Birth to 22kg (approx 4yr old)
  • Weight: Fairly heavy (13.7kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: High
  • Folding and converting: Easy

As a new mum I’ve come to regard Mamas and Papas as a shop with excellent choice, quality and customer service, and its signature own-brand Ocarro travel system has proved to be a triumph. I tested the six-piece bundle, which includes both a bassinet and pushchair, as well as a matching footmuff, changing bag, car seat adapters and cup holder.

Straight out of the box, it was the easiest to assemble and to switch between attachments, and (joy!) it folds down one-handed for neat storage. To say I’m malcoordinated and useless with instructions would be an understatement, and this was among the only models that didn’t fray my nerves when on the move and converting between modes.

Available in a range of muted grey and black colours, it is one of the more traditional prams in terms of style, with brushed twill, quilted cotton and leatherette accents. The padded seat with cushioned chest pads and head-hugging pillow feels nice and comfortable; while the snug, curved design of the bassinet lends a cosier element when compared to the boxy shapes found in most other models.

Not too big, not too small, with puncture-proof tyres and an ergonomic chassis that easily tackled a range of terrains, I found this to be the Goldilocks of prams, at a reasonable price considering the quality and versatility it offers.

3. Uppababy Vista V2

£1069.99, John Lewis

Best double buggy

We like: ergonomic and practical, a winner for expanding families

  • Birth to 22kg (approx 4yr old)
  • Weight: Very heavy (16.4kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: High
  • Folding and converting: Easy

Although objectively the Silver Cross is better and the Ocarro cheaper, for my specific needs this ultimately took the top spot. It boasts all the same great features, but with the added bonus of converting easily to a multi-unit for up to three children, from babies to toddlers – and not side-by-side, which would annoy me, but stacked in a range of vertical formations, both parent-facing and world-facing.

This Tetris-like capability, combined with its intuitive design, chunky wheels and all-terrain manoeuvrability made it foolproof to set up and a dream to navigate. Unlike other models, many of its nimble switches can be performed one-handed (detaching the bassinet, for example, and adjusting the seat’s multi-position recline) and its one-motion folding function is swift and smooth.

The unit, when folded, also stands independently for neater storage, unlike others which have to be propped up against a wall or on the floor. Bonus points too, for the fact that in addition to both the bassinet and toddler seat, the Uppababy Vista comes as standard with a rain cover, bug sheet and storage bag. So, while it’s on the higher end of both the weight and price range, you don’t need to purchase a bundle to get all the extras.

Lastly, it had the roomiest and most easily accessible under-seat storage basket of all the units I tried, perfect for spare nappies and wipes, and the highest frame, making it especially good for tall mums and dads.

4. Bugaboo Fox 3

£1115, Bugaboo

Best pram for rough terrain

We like: excellent suspension – a great solution for adventure-seekers

  • Birth to 22kg (approx 4yr old)
  • Weight: Light (9.9kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: High
  • Folding and converting: Difficult

I was really torn on the Bugaboo Fox 3, which came up consistently as a favourite among mums I spoke to. My expert Millie counts herself a ‘die-hard fan’. It comes in an impressive range of colours from pink to green and everything in between and handles wonderfully across many terrains, but I did find it difficult to assemble from the box. It’s also complex to fold (it took both my mother and I several gos to figure out, with the help of more than one YouTube tutorial) and an almighty faff to switch from bassinet to seat.

Having said that, you’ll probably only need to convert it like this once, when your baby is old enough to lift its head unsupported and you transition it from lying flat to sitting up, and once you get the hang of folding it, the frustration will fall away and you’ll be left with a really high-quality, versatile mode of transport.

Indeed, with its big, tough wheels and super bouncy suspension, the Bugaboo Fox 3 glides across all surfaces, including bumpy grass and even sand; making it easy to steer with just the tips of your fingers, and providing an exceptionally smooth ride for your little one.

5. Doona Infant Car Seat

£329, Doona

Best car seat stroller

We like: It’s a car seat on wheels that’s a game-changer for quick trips

  • Birth to 13kg (15 months)
  • Weight: Very light (7.4kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: High
  • Folding and converting: Very easy

There’s a good reason the Doona has such a cult following (every celebrity and high-profile mum-influencer seems to have one). It’s the only product of its sort; a car seat that flips Transformers-style into a stroller at the pull of a lever, with no extra frame or chassis to contend with. For a certain type of minimalist parent, it could be all you need as a means of transport from birth to about 15 months, provided you only need something for quick trips in and out of the car.

Personally, it was one of the first items on my baby wishlist, and my fiancé, who is planning to avoid a pram altogether, at least initially, in favour of the Doona for the car and a sling for out-and-about, loves it. Safe and practical, with a retractable sunshade, cushy three-layer side impact protection and an adjustable handlebar that also acts as an anti-rebound bar inside the vehicle, this gizmo doesn’t offer any function beyond being a car seat on wheels. It can’t lie flat and has no undercarriage storage, and as Millie points out, shouldn’t be used to push your baby around for more than two hours at a time:

“A baby should never spend more than two hours in a car seat as their spine is curved in this position. So if you’re taking a long drive, it is best to take the child out of the car seat as soon as you arrive and move them into a bassinet.”

But if a car seat and occasional stroller is all you need, this product could buy you at least a year before having to invest in a full pram or travel system.

6. Venicci Tinum Special Edition

£859, Venicci

Best pram for newborn

We like: versatility combined with sleek looks

  • Birth to 22kg (approx 4yr old)
  • Weight: medium (12kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: high (except on uneven ground)
  • Folding/converting: medium

Recommended by Bethan Holt, Telegraph fashion director

For our first outing with the Venicci, we decided to walk around the lake near my parents' house. This turned out to be something of a white knuckle ride for my four-month old son. Fortunately, back on smooth pavements, it really came into its own. Easy to push and a doddle to adjust from pram to pushchair, this model feels at once substantial and nimble.

My son is at the ultra-curious stage, so he was thrilled at how open the Venicci was (they call it Panoramic Ventilation). It was lovely to see him looking around so happily while knowing he was secure. And he enjoyed a few naps on the go, too.

The rose gold detailing added a touch of glamour you rarely find on prams and the fact that you buy a whole system in one bundle, complete with car seat, footmuff and changing bag, would make the often mystifying process of buying a pram and all the accoutrements hassle-free.

But what I liked most about this model was how it offered a little bit of everything on the dream pram list. I even considered taking it on a flight for a city break, as it's fairly lightweight and folds down into a compact bundle so you could avoid having to invest in a travel buggy. (Read our guide to the best travel cots if that's on your wish list too.)

Venicci

  • Birth to 22kg (approx 4yr old)
  • Weight: Heavy (15.5kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: Medium
  • Folding and converting: Easy when you know how

Recommended by Jane Johnson

If your baby’s safety and comfort is your priority, this is your pram. But if you’re looking for something you'll push effortlessly through busy city streets, it is not.

It looks beautiful, all curves, glinting silver and snuggly soft furnishings – the hexagon-shaped quilting inside the chair is particularly pleasing, like a cosy, secure womb – and my little one loved snuggling up inside it. That’s a big plus, as she’s at the climbing out stage (which is why I'm not reviewing the best high chairs.)

The seat can face the world or face you and it sits up or lies down with the flip of a small handle. I felt super proud to push the egg2 down my smart high street. But pushing up hills was a bit of a chore. The chassis, seat and wheels weigh 15.5kg, and then add a toddler on top. Along a busy high street, this lady’s not quite so easily ‘for turning’. That said, I love the chunky puncture-proof wheels and it mounts kerbs nicely.

Putting it together wasn’t quite the Krypton Factor challenge many buggies are. It’s quite intuitive, once you watch the instruction video. (Basically, one-handed, you pull up a handle inside the shopping basket, which I would never have guessed, and putting the brake on is a kind of flick motion on the pedal rather than the usual push down and click.)

There are some natty design features, like the adjustable footrest hiding a handy sun-shade and the ventilation net hidden behind the UPF 50 + hood. Improvements over the original Egg include larger, higher seat, easier-to-adjust harness, bigger basket size (although I would like even bigger) and new bigger wheels. With additional parts, it can also be converted into a tandem buggy.

Meanwhile there is a smaller, lighter egg, called the eggZ which I also tried. This is much nippier and not so heavy. It folds down easily into a handy free-standing position and has an easy magnetic harness buckle; very helpful when you are wrestling to get your toddler to go into the pram. It's got a good-sized basket, an extendable hood with a UPF of 50+ and looks nice and smart, although it it doesn't have the luxury feel inside the seat. It’s a great little runaround and, at £399, more affordable than the egg2.

8. iCandy Peach

£1,199, iCandy

Best travel system

We like: supremely useful one-hand fold and excellent suspension

  • Birth (with cot) or six months (with seat) to 25kg (approx 6yr old)
  • Weight: Fairly heavy (13.9kg)
  • Manoeuvrability: Medium
  • Folding and converting: Very easy

Recommended by Emily Allen, Telegraph head of digital lifestyle

Designed in Britain, this iCandy Peach is a super versatile travel system with a dizzying number of configurations to see you from birth to the end of toddlerhood. Crucially, it adapts to a tandem double should you wish to add to your brood, as we have just done, without forking out for a new buggy. Genius.

We tested the Peach with the carrycot and as a forward-facing pushchair. We assembled it hassle-free, since the instructions actually made sense (for once we didn't need to resort to a YouTube video) and the newborn happily nodded off cocooned in the plush olive-green bassinet. The mattress comes with a breathable mesh - perfect for safe sleep on the go.

It's not the most nimble of prams and is a little more cumbersome to steer than our Bugaboo Fox, but its chunky back wheels smoothly navigated most terrains. I was most impressed that it managed a long, bumpy walk around my parent's farm without waking the little one. The one-handed fold is speedy and smooth (I still battle to collapse the Fox after two years of using it) and the thick handlebar can be quickly adjusted to suit different heights, which is great if dads, nannies and grandparents will be using it too.

Extra points for the all-important basket, which can fit three big bags of shopping and can be accessed from the front and back. A solid bit of kit, as my dad would say.

FAQ

Should babies lie flat in a pram?

"Yes, babies up until at least four months should be lying flat as much as possible" says parenting expert Millie Poppins. "And even beyond that, should you choose to use the pram seat, it is important to have this on an incline of about 45 degrees so that your baby isn’t expected to completely support the weight of their own head."

When should you move a baby from a pram to a pushchair?

"When they can hold their own head up unsupported. Even then, parents should use the bassinet for as long as possible. There will come a time when the baby wants to see more of the world so that’s when you can change to the pushchair attachment. If they are falling asleep then you can lower this further so that they are snoozing as horizontally as possible when out and about."
