Naomi Liddell It all started with prams. The ease of use is just insane. We used it from newborn with Ethan, but he was born in the height of summer in Australia so having something that was open and airy was exactly what we needed. Will it be snow? So the search began for a 3-in-1 travel system with a lie-flat, carrycot pram attachment that could be well protected, whatever the weather.
Which resulted in my jaw hitting the floor on several occasions the price!! I closed all tabs, walked away and felt no better about any of it. By fluke, last weekend, my mother-in-law and I took a quick trip to a local Kids and Baby Market for a browse.
As we walked in there was a pram section and I immediately spotted the beautiful, super minimal Uno Stride.
It did exactly what I needed, looked great and was in almost new condition save some wear on the tyres. I snapped it up and was on my merry way within an hour of entering the place. And no need to research the thing as if it were our next car purchase.
And they only use everything for such a short period of time. But I have heard of some couples taking out big loans in order to buy top of the range everything for baby. Each to their own I guess. Maybe they plan on having 6 kids or maybe they just deem the debt worth it. And there are plenty of folk who can afford to buy whatever they want for bub. When in reality, babies need somewhere to sleep, clothing, nappies, a means to eat and loads and loads of love.
And they only use everything for such a short period of time. Each to their own I guess.
Our first pram is also case in point. I guess my question is… Are any of you lot feeling the stylised pressure of the baby industry?
