We’ve not had a huge amount of luck with prams.  We’ve already had three.

Yes you read that correctly.

Three prams in 7 months.

We’ve had a few issues.  To begin with our first pram was faulty ? Then the second, although we liked it, just wasn’t quite right.  The handle wasn’t long enough for 6″4 Phill and I couldn’t seem to get it up and down.  Oh and Dottie hated it (babies are picky)!

Our daughter  only seemed to be a proper baby for a couple of weeks and then she wanted to be sat up like a big girl (babies are impatient).  In pram number two this meant sitting in quite a big seat and facing away from mummy (babies don’t like that).  She would slump to one side and I always felt like the straps were rubbing her neck.

Then we got a pram liner from Bambella.  Bambella is new to the UK.  Their liners fit most prams (we’ve now tried it in three!) and come with free strap covers.  They have a massive range of fabrics, so you can choose a print to coordinate with your pram or go with something that stands out.  With a baby called Dottie….there was only one choice for us.


On the website, this fabric looks lighter, more peachy.  In reality it’s quite a rich coral colour.  I’ve washed it twice (babies are gross) and it doesn’t seem to have faded at all.

The pram liner was a game changer.  The padding made for a slightly more snug fit and a much more snuggly seat.  So once it was in place, Dorothy was much happier to sit in it (babies know what they like)!

Also because of the colour, I had fewer people asking me what ‘his’ name was.  *NB.  Not all bald babies are male!*

Now that we’ve got the combination of the Quinny (which makes Mummy and Daddy happy) and the pram liner (which makes Dorothy happy) I think we finally have the perfect pram ?

Bambella products are beautifully made.  The stitching is perfect – even the labels are pretty and this print…..I LOVE this print!  And I’m not the only one – everywhere we go people comment on how lovely the pram looks.

*we were gifted a pram liner for the purposes of this post but my review is honest.  I wouldn’t recommend something I thought was less than lovely ?
