It is always something that irks you to ensure you spring into action!
When I fell pregnant with my first child I could not believe the amount of baby products on the market and almost shed a tear when walking into Baby Bunting at 30 weeks to seek advice about prams, the sales assistant shared they have 160 on offer and where would I like to start!
It is like a whole other world – a world I was quite unfamiliar with after years in the corporate world and to be frank, quite overwhelming.
I had a long list of things I needed to buy and hours of research to work out what I thought was the best buy. In an era of information deluge it was actually quite hard and time consuming to find the information I was looking for – a quick guide /review on the best products on the market.
I signed up to Choice and although helpful I felt it took a very technical approach rather than a practical approach. Will this last the distance when I’m walking my daughter up the beach for 5kms or is it best on the road? Are all the accessories included in the price?
I asked my mother and mother in law, I received blank looks and comments along the lines of “it has been far too long to remember”.
I asked friends but each thought their product was the best …or the worst but nothing in in-between.
So this blog is a way to help other parents going through the same struggle I experienced. It provides helpful information from parents to parents. From my monthly survey I will share the findings and insights from parents just like you and give you a shortlist (rather than the long list of 160 prams!) to get you started.
I hope you join me on this journey and am seeking your help to contribute to our first survey.
It will take no more than 5 mins (10 questions in total) I promise!
