What is in a Cheap 3 in 1 Pram?
A 3 in 1 pram is a travel system that comes with an infant car seat and a carrycot, which can be easily locked to the buggy chassis (the frame) and taken off again. As different manufacturers design them differently, some car seats simply require a click to attach to the buggy frame, others need adaptors to allow the car seat to be used with the buggy. Irrespective of the way the car seat is attached, an ideal cheap 3 in 1 pram is all about the ease of allowing you move your baby from buggy to car without hassle.
As almost all 3 in 1 travel systems also include a carrycot, they can be attached to the chassis or buggy seat, easily turning your pushchair into a pram allowing your newborn lie flat. If you’ve purchased a buggy with a car seat that can be reclined into a lie-flat position, then you probably won’t be needing the carrycot to use with the buggy. All children are different though, and you may find that your little angel prefers one over the other, so having all the options available can only be a good thing.
