CHOOSING A PRAM OR PUSHCHAIR
The right pushchair can carry your baby through from birth to their toddling years. Our range covers everything from traditional pram-style models to all-terrain strollers for busy mums and dads.
There are several different types:
- Have a newborn baby
- Like a traditional look
- Have plenty of space
Then opt for a pram because…
- They allow your baby to lie flat, supporting their body and head
- They’re parent-facing, so you can maintain eye contact with your baby
- They’re wide and deep, designed in a classic style
- Have a baby under the age of 2 years
- Want a pushchair that can be folded
- Need something that’s easy to manoeuvre
Then browse our pushchairs because…
- They’re suitable for newborn babies if they have a fully reclinable seat
- Some models can be folded with one hand, while others feature a carry handle or fold strap
- They have various wheel types (fixed, swivel or lockable) for different terrains

Models with shopping trays or baskets can make things easier if you’re running errands with a little one in tow

Then consider our travel systems because...

Then think about strollers because...

- They’re lightweight, compact and can be taken as hand luggage on most aircraft
Twin & tandem
- Have twins, or small children close in age and weight

Sun shades & parasols
A canopy, sun shade or parasol helps to protect your baby from harsh sunlight
Cosy foot muffs are ideal in cold weather, keeping your baby snug and warm. Some foot muffs convert to pram quilts and liners

These cushions are specially designed to give young babies extra support and comfort in pushchairs, car seats and bouncing chairs
Covers & nets
Protect your baby from top to toe in bad weather or keep bothersome insects away with a cover or net. Don’t use indoors or when it’s hot to prevent overheating and risk of suffocation
By law, all pushchairs sold in the UK must comply with British standards.
Some travel systems may include a car seat that complies with European standards.
To ensure your child's safety, follow these simple tips:
- Read the instructions carefully and familiarise yourself with all the moving parts before you use your pushchair for the first time
- Show anyone who's going to use your pushchair how to open and close it and how to operate the brakes and locking mechanism
- Check that locking devices are secure when you open the pushchair
- Remember to release all locks before folding it
- Secure your child in the pushchair with the five-point harness
- Adjust the seat position while your child is in the pushchair
- Leave your child unattended
- Carry more than one child in your pushchair unless it's designed to do so
- Hang shopping or other heavy items on the handles, as it could tip the pram or pushchair over
- Use PVC rain covers indoors or in strong sunlight
Live near a John Lewis & Partners shop and your pram or pushchair develops what you believe to be a manufacturer’s fault within 2 years of purchase
Then take it to the Nursery department, along with your receipt or delivery note for a Partner to evaluate
A member of our Nursery department team will make an initial assessment to see if a manufacturing fault has occurred. If they're unable to confirm this, they'll return the pushchair to the manufacturer for them to assess the cause of the problem
During this time, we'll be pleased to lend you a replacement pushchair (subject to availability). We'll charge a deposit of £25, refunded on return as long as you bring the pushchair back in the same condition in which it was loaned to you
If the problem is identified as a manufacturing fault, the manufacturer will repair the pushchair free of charge in the first instance, or may replace it if repair isn't a viable option
We will charge you for the repair if the damage is caused by accident, misuse or as a result of wear and tear
