Un landau - a pram - a baby carriage - une voiture d'enfant
With the challenges of the Métro, busses, and steps in Paris, how do you manage to stroll your bébé in this fine carriage? Holly has a very old one and I can vouch that they are as heavy as a car and bigger than some I have seen in Paris!
This one sits in the foyer of a building and is only one step up from the street. I have watched young mothers with two little children, three bags of groceries, and a portable stroller struggle in the Métro so I am assuming that this large model would only be for a jaunt to a nearby park or garden.
I posted one here in which the grandmère strolled the little Parisienne princess in Jardins du Ranelagh (near Musée Marmottan). The petite baby must have lived in the neighborhood.
