BABY'S FIRST YEAR

- THEY ALL PROVIDE
THE SAME FUNCTION
IN MOVING YOUR BABY
AROUND, BUT WHAT
IS THE DIFFERENCE?
ew parents can be forgiven for
wondering just why there are
so many different names for
the same thing. However, it's
not until you've discovered the endless
possibilities of the world of prams that
you realise each model has its own
benefits depending on the age of
your child and your lifestyle needs. So
what exactly are the main differences?
A four-wheeled 'carriage' designed to
carry newborns and younger babies,
usually while they're lying down. It's
sturdy and generally can't be folded flat.
A pram is often shaped like a basket
and can be used until your child is six
months old, or when they start to sit up
unaided. Traditional prams are designed
to face the parent and have a hood to
protect the baby from the weather.

THE PERFECT RIDE
newborns and children from six months.
The package includes two individual seat
units and two raincovers. For newborns,
the front seat converts to a cosy carrycot,
while the older child can sit in the second
seat. The Duett ll sits on a lightweight
aluminum frame, has a height adjustable
handle and swivel-locking front wheels.
What's more, a wheel guard on the rear
wheels prevents your child in the second
seat from getting their fingers trapped.
The front seat, has a multi-adjustable
foot and backrest and is also reversible.
It can be used on its own - just remove
the second seat. There's a handy boot
cover for cooler weather. Available as an
optional extra is the Zero Plus Comfort
car seat which can replace the front seat.
