A travel system is the term used when your pram or stroller has adaptors that allow for a car capsule to be placed in the stroller frame. This means you can easily transport bubs from the car to the stroller without having to wake them up to move them out of the car capsule and into a bassinet.
The key advantages of each
As experts recommend your baby lies completely flat until they can support their own heads, a pram is the best option for parents with a newborn child. Once your bub is big enough, you simply swap the bassinet for the stroller seat. Most prams will be suited for use until your bub is a full blown toddler, but always check the specifications of each manufacturer so you can compare seat sizes.

Strollers tend to be the best option for those looking for more compact, lightweight solutions. Umbrella strollers for example are incredibly cheap and perfect to throw in a car and use if you’re going out to brunch with a friend and bubs. As mentioned earlier, some manufacturers will refer to their pram as a stroller, meaning there are plenty of high end strollers on the market that come with bassinets or newborn inserts.
Travel systems are advantageous to parents who have a car capsule and are looking for a seamless way to transport bubs in and out of a car. Please note that it is not recommended to leave your baby in a car capsule for prolonged periods of time, so if you intend on taking bubs out for a long walk a bassinet will be best advised.
