Can I turn my Redsbaby pram into a double?

It’s good to have options! When preparing for the birth of first child, it can be too much to think about second and third children at that time, but it’s also nice to know that if you do have another baby in future, that the investments you’re making now will last you through each new arrival.

For parents that already have children, are expecting another and are looking to upgrade their pram to a double or triple, it's helpful knowing that as your older children outgrow the pram, you can easily convert back down to a single.

No matter where you're at in your journey, we have created this guide to help you choose which pram is right for your family. Consider these options if you’re looking for the flexibility of converting easily from a single to a double pram and back again, are looking for a twin option, or are expecting another child while your eldest is still using a pram.

For first-time parents:

Meet the Redsbaby NUVO

Key features:

  • 18 configurations
  • Goes from transporting one child, to transporting three
  • Spacious 12kg-capacity basket
  • Folds with two seats attached, parent or world facing

The NUVO pram is our full-size double option, but you can easily start your parenting journey with the NUVO in single mode.

When purchasing in single mode, the NUVO comes with the below:

  • 1 x chassis
  • 1 x seat frame
  • 1 x set of upper adaptors (to be used on the upper and middle NUVO seat modes)
  • 1 x set of bassinet fabrics
  • 1 x set of toddler seat fabrics which can be easily interchanged

These items are all included for the NUVO single price, $1,199.

Why the NUVO:

Initially when you have your baby, you will set the pram up with bassinet fabrics, and then as your baby grows, you can graduate to the toddler seat fabrics, using the same chassis and seat frame.

The NUVO is a loved pram by parents of one for its spacious basket, four-wheel suspension, high parent facing seat for connection to your baby and its ability to seamlessly convert to a double pram if you have a second child.

If you become pregnant again, you can purchase your second seat for $279. This includes:

  • 1 x seat frame
  • 1 x set of toddler seat fabrics
  • 1 x set of lower adaptors (to be used in double mode)

Once your second child arrives, you can place the bassinet fabrics from your original pram purchase onto your new seat frame. The bassinet then sits on the lower position of the NUVO, while your eldest child can sit at the top in their toddler seat (the same one you used in single mode.)

Then, once your second child outgrows the bassinet, add your toddler seat fabrics to your new seat frame to use the NUVO with two full size toddler seats.

You also have the option of adding a buggy board to the NUVO once your eldest outgrows sitting in the pram.

Meet the Redsbaby JIVE⁵

Key features:

  • A single pram that converts seamlessly to a compact double
  • Buggy board compatible
  • A one-step, compact fold with upper seat attached

When purchasing in single mode, the JIVE⁵ comes with the below:

  • 1 x pram chassis
  • 1 x bassinet
  • 1 x toddler seat
  • 1 x set of bassinet/capsule adaptors

These are included in the JIVE⁵ single price of $999.

Why the JIVE⁵:

The JIVE⁵ is the cult favourite single pram. Tried and tested by thousands of families, it really is the simple essential.

In comparison to the NUVO, the JIVE⁵ has a smaller frame, and in double mode is a more compact option. This is perfect for parents that think they might only have the one child, but would like the option of a double incase things change. This is also suitable for parents with a larger age gap between their kids, who will only have a short window of needing to use the pram in double mode, meaning they don’t want to commit to a full size double as they may not get the use out of it.

When you have your first child, you would start with the JIVE⁵ in bassinet or capsule mode while your child is a newborn, once they outgrow this, remove the adaptors and swap out the bassinet for the seat. Unlike the NUVO, the JIVE⁵ has two separate frames for the bassinet and toddler seat.

If you have a second baby, another seat and lower JIVE⁵ adaptors can be purchased for $229. Reattach the bassinet in the upper position for your newborn, and add the lower toddler seat for your eldest.

Then eventually, when your youngest graduates to a toddler seat, use your pram in double mode, with two toddler seats on a compact, single frame. The JIVE⁵ is also buggy board compatible, once your eldest outgrows sitting in the pram.

For parents welcoming their second born, or who are confident they will one day need a double:

Meet the Redsbaby NUVO

Key features:

  • Full size double option - great for parents expanding their family
  • Spacious 12kg-capacity basket
  • Folds with two seats attached, parent or world facing

Purchasing the NUVO in double mode will allow you to immediately begin transporting two children at once. Arriving with the below:

  • 1 x chassis
  • 2 x seat/bassinet frames
  • 2 x toddler seat fabrics
  • 1 x bassinet fabric
  • 1 x set of upper adapters
  • 1 x set of lower adaptors

These are included in the price for $1,399.

Why the NUVO:

When you purchase the NUVO in double mode, you can immediately set up your pram to carry both your toddler, and your newborn. This package also arrives with additional toddler seat fabrics for when your youngest outgrows the bassinet.

Parents love the NUVO as even when in double mode, the basket remains spacious and easy to access - an absolute necessity when expanding your family.

The NUVO seats and bassinets also fold down to flat for easy storage. This means that if you were to purchase the NUVO double before having a second child, you could easily store the toddler seat/bassinet under a bed or in a closet while you wait for your new arrival.

The NUVO configuration is also ideal for parents of two, as your newborn can be safely laying down on the bottom position in the bassinet, and you can give your toddler some quality you-time, as they are seated in the parent-facing upper position. This will help your eldest feel attended to and connected, during what can sometimes be a difficult transitional period for them as they become used to sharing your time with a sibling.

Meet the Redsbaby JIVE⁵

Key features:

  • A single pram that converts seamlessly to a compact double
  • Buggy board compatible
  • A one-step, compact fold with upper seat attached

Purchasing the JIVE⁵ with the second seat will allow you to instantly transport two children at once, arriving with the below:

  • 1 x chassis
  • 1 x toddler seat
  • 1 x bassinet
  • 1 x second, lower seat
  • 1 x set of upper adapters
  • 1 x set of lower adaptors

These are included in the price for $1,149.

Why the JIVE⁵:

Whilst the JIVE⁵ was created as a full size single pram, many parents of two love it's compact nature, that still allows them to transport both children.

We recommend the JIVE⁵ in double mode for if you have a larger age gap between two children, and will only need to use the pram in double mode for a short period of time, or as a pram for grandparents or secondary caregivers, who may not be caring for both children all the time and will only need the double seat on occasion.

For parents of two, the NUVO is our full size double option which means you have access to a generous basket, and your children have more space whilst in the pram. The JIVE⁵ is the perfect product for families looking for a more compact, or shorter term choice.

For twin parents:

Meet the Redsbaby NUVO

Key features:

  • Twin mode options include 2 x bassinets, 2 x capsules and 2 x toddler seats
  • Doesn’t sacrifice basket space in twin mode - we know you need the extra space!
  • A one-step, ultra simple fold with both seats attached in parent or world facing mode

The NUVO pram is the ultimate twin option. Light-weight with a compact fold, yet spacious and large enough to hold two capsules or two bassinets at once.

When purchasing in twin mode for $1,549, you will receive:

  • 1 x pram chassis
  • 2 x seat frames
  • 2 x bassinet fabrics
  • 2 x toddler seat fabrics
  • 1 x set of upper and lower adaptors

This means that you can use both sets of bassinets as soon as your children are born, setting the NUVO up with both upper and lower bassinets straight away, and storing the toddler seat fabrics for when your babies get bigger.

Why the NUVO:

Comfortably supporting two bassinets, seats and capsules at a time is a gamechanger for twin parents, along with the 12kg basket which is essential for when your newborn needs double.

With the option to add Britax b-pods to your order to further simplify your twin parenting experience, these pods will double as pram seats and car seats for your newborns. Just be mindful that your baby should not be in a capsule for longer than two hours at a time. Conveniently, bassinet frames and fabrics come in your NUVO twin order, which have no time limit placed on them as your baby will lie in a flat position, rather than curled.

This pram easily takes you from the newborn phase to when your children will eventually outgrow the pram, meaning you will only be spending once, on a quality product. You will also have the option to add a buggyboard to the NUVO pram if you already have an older child.
