As I mentioned in my last post, some of our baby nursery furniture, pram included, has arrived – finally after 12 weeks! The wizard will now use her magic wand and put together the baby pram – which, now looks like this!
Doesn’t look too complicated hey? Something a 35 week pregnant woman can do? I think I will leave the nuts and bolts to the husband, after all, he doesn’t have a bump to contend with. His knees don’t creak and threaten to crack when bending, neither does he take 30 seconds in slow-mo to change from a squatting position to a standing position.
Our canopy for the carrycot (or bassinet) is a nice red colour (did we reckon it was a unisex colour?) with the base material being a dark gray. You can choose from various colours for the canopy thus they called it ‘customised’. Our pram weighs about 12kgs in all (thats 6 regular 14 inch laptops) minus baby weight, Oh oh!!! But the frame itself weights about 9kgs (minus the seat/carrycot which will be removed before the frame is folded).
Will we use our Bugaboo that much?? Is it worth the investment as claimed and fussed by many a mums (and dads) on the strollersandprams.com website? Yet to be known. BTW, you can apparently purchase one on E-Bay for half the retail price – but you dont know where it’s been so I would be slightly apprehensive to put our baby in it. Anyway, this thing should be amortised over four (4) years per baby for a minimum of two (2) babies. It better last!!!
