If you're expecting a baby and wondering how to save money on all the kit and kaboodle that you need to buy for a new arrival, we've got amazing news. At Boots right now there's a mega sale on selected items of baby gear from Silver Cross.

In the Silver Cross sale at Boots, you can snap up one of the best prams money can buy, saving yourself hundreds of pounds in the process. Famous for its elegant prams and pushchairs, Silver Cross was founded in 1877 and remains one of the most prestigious and enduring British nursery brands. A Silver Cross pram has been the pram of choice for the Royal family for generations, with everyone from Prince Charles to Prince George being pictured in the brand's iconic coach-style prams.

Recently, we assembled a panel of mum reviewers - all keen to find the perfect pram - and asked them to put a range of different models to the test. We included the Silver Cross Wave in our testing to see if it's worth its hefty price tag. With the help of our mum reviewer, we concluded that it's worth every penny if your budget allows. But - happy day - even if it doesn't you can now bag yourself this luxe pram for HALF PRICE.

As a mum of three and Consumer Editor of Goodto, I never recommend an item of baby gear unless I've personally put it to the test or arranged for our panel of mum reviewers to try it out. And if it doesn't wow us, we're never going to tell you it's a brilliant buy, so you can always trust our product recommendations and our buying advice.

It's likely that the items that are up to half-price in the Silver Cross sale aren't the very latest models but that just means the brand has released a newer edition of the product with updated colours or new fabric. One of the very best ways to save money on a pricy piece of baby gear like a pram is to buy a model that's a couple of years old, in the same way, that a brand-new car is more expensive than one that was released a year or two ago.
