Before you go any further, make sure you watch our video on how to install your Newborn Insert Cushion here.
An important tip:
The string is part of the packaging. You need to remove this before fitting the Newborn Insert Cushion to your pram.
Why use the Edwards & Co Newborn Insert Cushion?
You can get out and about with your newborn if you add the Newborn Insert Cushion to your Oscar stroller. Otherwise, the Oscar stroller is only suitable from 6 months.
The Newborn Insert Cushion has a wedge to fill out the bucket seat design of the Oscar stroller. This makes the seat flatter and more suitable for your newborn. We’ve designed it for the first 0-6months, but some parents use it longer, or take it out earlier. This is where your judgement comes into play, you know your child best.
Once your baby has good head and neck control, you can use the main seat of the Oscar, either on its own, or with a Luxe Liner added for extra comfort.
Other options for your newborn’s pram:
• Attach the Carry Cot or
• Avery Capsule

Can I use the Newborn Insert Cushion in my Oscar g3 or Otto?
No, these prams are already “newborn ready” as the seat lays flat.
Can I use the Newborn Insert Cushion with other accessories?
Yes, you can use your Newborn Insert Cushion with a Luxe Liner or Sleeping Bag.
Most customers put the wedge of the Newborn Insert Cushion in first, then the Luxe Liner or Sleeping Bag, then add the actual Newborn Insert Cushion + head support and harness pads.
Or you can just use the Newborn Insert Cushion on its own and use blankets if it's chilly.
Does my baby have to be lying down when using the Newborn Insert Cushion?
You can find this information in your pram’s Instruction Manual, here.
It is recommended to use the Oscar + Newborn Insert Cushion with the seat in the fully reclined position.
Obviously, a newborn baby will need to be lying flat in the fully reclined seat position. Once your baby has good head and neck control, and seems to want to be sitting more upright, you can put the seat into a semi-reclined position. Or have the seat fully upright if you're happy with how you baby looks. If they fall asleep, we do recommend adjusting the seat unit so it’s fully reclined.
