Prams : What & Which
4 minute read, Written By: Momly
What is a Pram?
A Pram is a baby accessory or a comfortable nest used to carry and drive a baby until it can sit independently. Since a baby’s body is not fully developed and its neck/back area is not firm enough, a pram is used to hold it in place and help with mobility. You can push a pram to take your baby to a park, shopping complex, or just for a walk in your society premises.
Why is Pram useful for your baby?
Pram is very useful as it provides comfort and support for a baby. The parents need not carry their baby all the time. It makes their life easy as you could lay your baby in a recliner pram or a pram bassinet to take a break from carrying. A pram comes with a roof or pram cover which shields the baby from heat and sunlight. Also, prams give a snug atmosphere to babies. While watching out for features in a pram, safety always comes first. We have listed certain features you can look for before making a purchase.
