Based on 35 reviews

Car seats



While we don’t generally recommend car seats that aren’t built for purpose, the Doona has proven to be a safe, reliable and convenient car seat in required and additional crash testing. #CarseatFullstop rating - 4/5 The Doona operates as a compact rearward facing infant car seat, which can be used up to 13kg or 81cm (whichever is reached first). The seat itself weighs 7kg. The seat installs simply with a seat belt alone. Alternatively, you can purchase and use an ISOfix base which it clicks into. It has a built-in travel system and unfolds into an easy-to-use pram. The car seat is also approved internationally for use on flights, although you should double check with your airline in advance. Crash testing explained by #CarseatFullstop here (link). Safety Ratings: Passed basic safety standard: ECE R44/04 External testing: ADAC +2.4 (Good) Which? 61% (with seatbelt); 62% (with base) We do not recommend using any car seat other than an infant car seat for a baby under 13kgs or 75cm. An infant seat is specifically designed to protect your developing baby.

Probably the best purchase we have made for our little one. We are on the go all the time and having the Doona has made life so much easier. I cant imagine managing without it!

One of our best buys when our son was born. It is so easy and simple to use. Its sturdy and even looks great. I can't say enough good things about this pram/car seat.

I fell in love with this car seat + pram in one - as a 1st time mom I really am looking for functional and practical items that can benefit me in more ways than one. I tested the Doona out with my really tall partner at a Baby exhibition (it looks low but it adjusts easily) and it is completely worth the price range (R5600 - 6500) with a warrantee on the wheels as well. It literally flips into a car seat from pram in 1 button! Can't wait for outings with my mini-me without feeling frazzled about pram parts and heavy car seats.

Convenient and easy to use.

This is definitely a game changer when it comes to car seats and prams. The most convenient that I've used when comparing to all the other big brands out there. I suppose for a mom who is on the move with babe this will work great. I do school pick ups with ease.

I’m in love with the Doona. Bought this a few months ago and while I’m still waiting for my little girl to arrive, I’ve been testing this out with my 18month old nephew! He LOVES the seat. Super comfortable, easy to control and super convenient! Best investment yet!

I have always wanted a Doona but never got around to getting one. I wanted it just from a convient point of view. We travel in Uber and this would be perfect from climbing in and out of Uber. Especially when u also need your hands free because you have a toddler too! I love Doona! Maybe I'll get one one day!

The Doona was recommended to me by 2 of my friends and it has not disappointed! We have added a holder onto the top of the handle which conveniently holds keys, bottles and bibs which are always needed! Also received fantastic assistance from the Doona team at the Mamamagic expo as our Doona’s wheels were a bit worn and they replaced them quickly!

I have had the doona since the birth of my baby. She is now 13 months. My husband works and I chose to stay at home with baby which means all the shopping and errands are done by me during the day and the Doona makes it so simple for me to travel everywhere and anywhere with my child. I don't have to worry about the hassle of taking a pram and a car seat as everything is in one. However my child now weighs 10kg and the Doona is getting a bit small for her. Also when we go out, there isn't a tray or basket on the pram for you to put additional stuff in which means if you go to the mall and you buy a loaf of bread and milk, you have to carry the packets/bags in your hand or if you taking your baby's flask that doesn't fit into the diaper bag that attaches to the pram, then you have to carry it around in another bag. It does have its pros and cons but it has served me well for these couple of months but I would have to get something a little bigger now.

I would love to have one... It is a bit expensive so it is just going on my wish list for now...

Basically obsessed with this pram/car seat. This is probably not my only review. I fall in love all over again when I see a doona

...

Mizanne

I am a first time mom and the Doona has been FANTASTIC!! It fits into small spaces easily, such as between tables in restaurants and it is so easy to get around with it. My daughter loves going everywhere with her mommy in her Doona! It is quite heavy though, but I count it as a workout when I need to pick it up or take it out of the car 😊

Samantha

This is one of the products I wish I had with my first baby. It’s been life changing! With my first our pram was such a pain to lug about, and it was so uncomfortable for my reflux child, I ended being a baby-wearing mom out of pure necessity. The Doona on the other hand is so comfy, convenient and just plain smart design, I am now a proud pram mom. I love the ease with which it is inserted and removed from the car, the natural positioning which is so comfy for the baby (even for this reflux babe) and the smooth ride. I literally wish we planned another baby for the future to keep using this pram!

Cant review from experience but have to tekl my little story. The other day I went out with my 7 week old baby, pram, car seat everything in the car. Mind you I was alone on this mission. I get to where I need to be, park my car and I see this mom in the car next to me whip out her doona-so easy, light,within less than a min and off she goes. My turn.. so I have this chicco road runner pram (with the big wheels-it was my daughters from 3 years ago). Flip. Its heavy, massive and I struggled. It wasnt easy at all. Took up my entire boot. Literally envied the lady with her doona-good envy. Not going out with my boy alone anytime soon again. Lol.

I've got a Doona for my son and he's sadly almost outgrown it at 17 months. I absolutely love the convenience of this stroller and car seat combo (especially for travelling/ flying between cities). It's ideal if you have a small city car and want to save boot space too. When my son suffered from severe reflux, sitting in the Doona would eventually calm him down as the backrest isn't too far back, allowing him to be slightly upright but still comfortable.

This no fuss pram really makes it super easy for when you are alone with baby. It's small, compact and super easy to manoeuvre around in crowdy spaces. I am a Doona owner and the safely of folding the whole pram up and fixing it in the car was really important to me, i did not have leave the baby unattended while putting the rest of the pram in the boot. This is truly a good investment. The essentials bag is also a life saver and fits perfectly on the pram leaving your hands and body totally free and not constricted.

this is the number one pram/car seat! I don’t own one because it’s too pricey but I would have loved to have it for my daughter! Looks so comfy and easy to set up! Definitely putting this on my wish list..

I am a first time Mommy to a 5 month little boy, and I own a Doona. I bought the doona when I was just 12 weeks pregnant and fell inlove instantly from seeing it in the baby shop, and even more so now that I have had the opportunity to use it. It is the easiest, no fuss, no bother travel system that makes yours and baby’s life easier! No more waking baby up to take them out their car seat! I don’t regret purchasing this product at all, and I can’t wait to get many more months use from it. I often get stopped at the shops by people that are so surprised by how easy this car seat turns instantly into a pram before your eyes! Go Doona! You have my heart set on this for life!

I love this because if you're the one traveling around with a baby, you don't need anything else BUT a Doona. No struggling unclipping a car seat and clicking it to a pram and heavy lifting equipment. The Doona secures safely and easily even without an isofix! The inner removes easily and suddenly you have space for your growing child! Rear facing for up to 2 years old. Then the magic happens when it easily changes into a pram. I love that my child is facing me when in the pram. That way i can check on him of he's sleeping, perhaps choking on something etc. Totally recommend this to EVERY new mom I've ever met and they are in LOVE with their Doonas too!

...

Imaan

I absolutely love our doona! It makes outings easy without the hassle of having to pack a pram plus car seat, as it’s an all in one! Baby also doesn’t need to be moved from one to the other, leaving her to sleep in peace after a car ride.

Nivesha

Wow this product is beautiful I've seen one and also saw videos, unfortunately I don't have one for my baby boy but I can tell u its one of the best stroller /carseat for our babies, the quality is great and it's easy to move around.

...

Haarisha

This is definitely a product I want to get. I don't have one but I have read and heard the reviews on this Doona and it's amazing. The fact that it's a carseat and a stroller is even more amazing. So really a great investment

...

Liezel

This is definitely on top of my list when we decide to have baby no 3 next year....with 3 children a Doona will be a MUST in our home :-)

...

Afton

Ahhhhhh what a life saver. This invention is literally the best thing since sliced cheese. Lightweight, easy and the design is so cute. My biy still loves his doona 6 months later. Its so comfortable, padded and easy to wipe down. Best baby buy we have made.

...

Jessica

I love my Doona! It is so practical! Not only fantastic for travelling, but going to malls, out for lunch and anywhere with good roads. The wheels are a little bit small for tough potholed South African roads, but for well maintained paths and roads this pram is perfect! May need a second pram if you intend on doing a lot of outdoor activities.

Chantell

As a short person. And driving a small car, this was ideal for when my son arrived 2 years ago. Now having my daughter im even more excited as I love the Doona. It's easy to use.

...

Nadine

I can’t live without my doona! It was the best purchase I’ve made. Easy to travel with, baby falls asleep instantly when rocking her in it, the doona essentials bag is my everyday baby bag and fits perfectly onto the doona so no need to carry extra weight on my shoulders.

...

Tiffany

I think This is the most accessible and easiest way to move around. Just hop in and out with no extra hastle. I can not wait to get mine

...

Danni

Doona is a must for someone with more than one child!! So simple and quick, and def helps with getting kids in and out of car quick and easy. Great for traveling!! Airports, planes, malls or walks.. This really is a great pram.

I would like to try this on our coming baby

The Doona is probably the best travel system I have seen in a long time. I do not own one myself, but dream to be able to purchase one some day. Already started to save for one when I am blessed with a beautiful baby some day. :-) Even though a little pricey it is so compact and easy to use. I have a friend who has one and I have been with her on holiday, to a shopping mall and coffee dates and I just stand in awe each time on how easy the Doona is to use, especially for Moms who sometimes have to run a few errands on their own without Dad or someone to help them carry. The Doona changes from car seat to stroller (and back!) in only a few seconds and is light and manageable. Absolutely love the Doona!! ♥

This would be an awesome travel set, versatile, I love the colours

My son is 19 months old and has used his Doona for the first 18 months of his life. It was perhaps the Best Buy I made for him as a parent and I wish it was available years ago so I could have bought it for my older son! The Doona can be used up until your child is 13kg, which my son isn’t quite there yet (almost!) but he is tall and like the another mom mentioned, your child cannot face forward when being pushed around, which had my son sitting forward and peeping from the side. We travelled twice overseas since he was born (at 3 months and at 18 months) and both times we took the Doona and it was a lifesaver! We hired a car in all 3 countries we visited and it made life an absolute breeze because he was comfy enough to nap when he was tired. Locally, we have travelled with it as well. And just for daily use, it’s been fantastic! When he was younger, I would just remove the Doona from the car when I got home (if I found him asleep) and then convert it to a pram and park it in my lounge until he woke up. As he got older, it did become heavier to move him around while strapped inside. I would highly recommend the Doona pram bag that attaches to the back of the Doona as there isn’t space to hold/hook parcels or anything else on the handle. I’m very glad I bought this product and made very good use of it!

I'm interested in purchasing this product, but can anyone tell me how long you used it for, before your toddler outgrew it, as a car seat, stroller or both? I understand the convenience of having a 2 in 1 product, but I'm wondering if there's a reason for travel systems coming with separate car seat and pram. Any mama's out there who can give advice before I make a decision? I want to love it, but have reservations. Much appreciated!

Jodi

We’ve had our doona for the last 5 months now. It’s used daily, and we simply love it! It is so convenient, although it is abit on the heavy side, when having to pick up your child in it. The only problem I have is that my baby wants to see things so I can’t push it any other way other than facing me. But other than that it’s so easy to use and such a good buy!
