How to make up a Carriage Pram

Tamzin, Meghan, Jenny, Danielle, Meg and Gemma, Norland second year students #Set37, have been perfecting their pram making up skills on our new Silver Cross Balmoral pram. They took some time out in the Norland garden to share this 'how to' 10 step plan.

Jenny and Tamzin
Step 1
Lower the hood and remove the apron and harness.

Step 2
Using a freshly laundered flat sheet, place the sheet on the mattress, folding the sheet neatly under the mattress, long sides first. Make sure the sheet is flat and wrinkle free to ensure comfort for the baby.
Step 3
Take a muslin cloth, fold it in half and place it on top of the sheet at the head of the pram. Make sure the seams of the muslin are at the top (again to ensure comfort for baby).
Secure by folding under the mattress.

Meghan and Gemma
Step 4
Place the top sheet over the pram with the seam at the upper most. Place a blanket over the top allowing for the sheet to fold over the top of the blanket.
Fold the top of the sheet over the blanket.

Step 5
Tuck in one long side of the sheet and blanket under the mattress.

Step 6
Fold the bottom end over the blanket and roll the blanket and sheet to one side ready for tucking in a baby.

Step 7
Re-attach the harness, ensuring the buckles are on top for ease of strapping up to harness and making it more comfortable for baby to lie on. 

Meg and Danielle
Step 8
Place the baby on top of the straps and do up the harness, adjusting the straps as necessary.

Step 9
Roll the blanket over baby and tuck in at the bottom and other side. 

Step 10 
Replace the hood and apron and you're ready to go! 


Thanks ladies!!

    To promote our fabulous new American Beauty Association

    We went through a process of hand selecting the softest most cruelty-free brushes we could find. Our makeup brush has been compared to the Sigma – F80 Flat Top, the #1 selling brush on Amazon.

    Put yourself back in control of your coverage, with one less caked-on layer of foundation. The Mieoko flat top brush allows nothing to stand between you and your makeup application. Imagine perfect skin all day, every day 24/7.

This small compact brush is really handy for on-the-go full coverage, whether it’s a quick car mirror fix or a little late afternoon pick-me-up.


  2. I wish to show thanks to you just for bailing me out of this particular trouble. As a result of checking through the net and meeting techniques that were not productive, I thought my life was done.
