For such tiny beings, babies sure do come with a lot of big things. One of those things is the pram. A pram is also one of the biggest financial investments you'll make when shopping for your newborn. We know it's a big purchase and we take the responsibility of transporting your little one VERY seriously. We also know there's a few other must-haves when shopping for bub, which is why at Babybee we ensure our products are long lasting, durable, safe, stylish and packed with excellent value.
One of the most common questions we receive from our customers is how long their child will fit in the Babybee pram they're looking to buy. We design all of our products with longevity in mind so you can get most value from your buck, it's also why Babybee has one of the largest toddler seats available on the market (a larger seat = your child will fit in the pram longer).
Here, we'll run you through the exact sizes of our stroller seats compared to average size guides of Australian kids.
Age, weight and seat sizes
The Babybee range
The current Babybee range is suitable for use from birth (with the bassinet or cocoon) up to around 3-4 years in the seat, depending on how tall your child grows. In order to balance stroller size, weight and usability, the seats are designed to fit the average Australian 3-year-old, up to 20kg in weight and comply with all Australian Safety Standards.
When it comes to stroller seat sizes, fixed seat strollers (like our LUNA) and joggers often have the largest seats; however, don’t have the functionality or flexibility of being able to face in both directions. Three-in-one models (prams like our ROVER3 or DUO2 models that accommodate a capsule, bassinet and seat on the frame, all capable of facing either direction) typically have a slightly more compact seat, due to their design and in order to balance overall size and weight.
Notes about children's growth
Babies and toddlers grow at very inconsistent rates, with their torsos growing faster to begin with and then slowing as their legs grow at a rapid rate. For those that see their 10-month old nearing the top of the seat, it’s extremely likely that they will stay at that point on the seat for quite a while. On average, babies grow approximately 25cm from 0-12months, 13cm from 1-2 years, 9cm a year from 2-3 years and 5cm a year from 3 years to puberty.
Average weights and heights of Australian children
At 3 years of age, even the heaviest of boys (yellow line is top percentile, light blue is average) only weighs 17kg. With the average 3-year-old girl being 13kg and highest percentile only 15kg.
