When it comes to choosing prams I never imagined it would be so much like purchasing a car, weighing up the pros and cons, each with their own special features and some even with price tags similar to a small car. One thing I learnt is no matter how much the pram costs or what kind of features it has, you need to be able to open up, virtually one-handed.
Introducing my Nano™ Travel by Mountain Buggy. It was love at first sight! Living in an apartment, I needed something that was compact, but also functional that takes me from the sands of the Gold Coast on my morning walks or to the office. There is a variety of colour to choose from, but I wanted yellow. It seemed more fitting because my baby is a Leo, I thought that would be cute.
There are a couple of things I really love about the Nano™, and first up is the large fold-back hood. Being on the Gold Coast, bubs needs good protection from the sun. It will also help keep him dry when wet season arrives.
Being a travel blogger and an on-the-go mum who loves to explore the world, it was really important to me that whatever pram I selected was easy to take with me The advantages to the Nano™ is that it has specifically been designed for travelling. It’s designed to fold down so you can pop it into an overhead locker once aboard your plane. No more having to check prams in as oversized luggage, you can wheel your pram right on into the cabin. This is particularly handy if you are transferring between flights. No need to struggle to hold bubs, carry-on luggage, nappy bags and handbags while rushing to the transit lounge. Hopefully, we get to travel again soon. I’m praying this pandemic will soon be a distant memory.
I also go to church every Sunday, so the Nano™ will make it easy for me to whip out and fold down without any help. It’s incredibly lightweight too and with a shoulder strap, I can sling it over my shoulder or pop it beside me at church, so if Leo decides to scream mid-service, I can make a quick escape without disturbing the entire congregation.
It seems very manoeuvrable and comes with kerb pop technology which puts the centre of gravity towards the back of the buggy making the front much lighter. So, when you get to a kerb or are getting off or on public transport you only need a small push down on the handle and the front will lift up easily.
The bigger wheels are low maintenance and it features rear-wheel suspension for a smoother ride when you go offroad–—cobblestones, pebbled concrete, gravel or dirt roads or freshly mown grass. And of course, I can’t forget the 5-point safety harness to keep Baby Leo safe and secure.
If you have a newborn, you’re going to love the new lie-flat feature. It’s so easy to adjust from a fully reclined position to sitting, so when you combine this with the 20kg load capacity, this pram really has what it takes for longevity—from newborn to toddler.
The Nano™ Travel also teams with a cocoon that’s available as an additional extra. It will keep Leo warm and snuggly and allow us to move him from the buggy to the car without disturbance. There is also a great range of accessories including a travel satchel, sleeping bag, winter skis (I’m not joking) umbrellas that attach to the stroller, cup holders and handmuffs. This baby buggy has everything to fit my lifestyle.
