Cheap 3 in 1 Prams
Travel systems and 3 in 1 prams typically cost between £450 and £600 in many stores today. Cheaper 3 in 1 prams are usually few and far between. This is a quick run down of some of the available 3 in 1 travel systems under a threshold price of £250, helping you keep an eye on your wallet and meeting your baby’s travel needs from birth.
This is a look at some of the great value 3 in 1 prams available on the market today.
What is a 3 in 1 travel system?
A 3 in 1 travel system is a buggy 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 be used with the buggy. Irrespective of the way the car seat is attached, a 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.
