Pushchairs for older children are often lighter and are sometimes referred to as strollers or buggies, but at first, support for the back is of vital importance. If your baby will be spending more than a couple of hours at a time lying in the pushchair, then you should seriously consider a three-in-one that comes with a carrycot and a mattress.

Leaving a very young baby in a car seat for more than a couple of hours is also bad for his back. If you want to have something for a baby to sleep in overnight, then a carrycot is essential.

You can use a sheet and blankets with a carrycot that has a mattress. With a two-in-one or a fully-reclining pushchair your baby will lie directly on the fabric, so it's important that it is easily removable and washable.

With a fully reclining pushchair, and to some extent with a two-in-one, you will need to dress your baby for the outdoor weather rather than keep him warm with blankets.
