I feel for you Patty!

We've finally ordered ours - it's the Micralite Travel System and it's bloomin' brilliant.

:):):)

It's sooooo light, and seeing as I'm such a weak soul then it's ideal. Can't wait for it to arrive now!

I would get the Phil & teds single then add the toddler seat later if that's what happens. I had the quinny buzz for M which I sold for virtually what I paid for it so that money went towards the Phil & teds I now have.

It is really easy to push easier than the quinny!

Hi all - we've just started looking at prams and like everyone are feeling massively confused.

I've just read that newborns should be lying flat as much as possible - so does that make the whole idea of the car seat fixed on to the pram a bit pointless? I'm surprised as all my friends seem to have used the travel systems and their babies seem to live in the car seats quite a lot of the time.

We've been looking at the Graco Expedition - three wheeler (a bargain at £139 with the car seat included). The front wheel is fixed - does this matter?

The seat fully reclines - so should be good for baby from birth.

Any views on this particular pram? All advice welcome.

I got the Bugaboo Chameleon and still love it. It is perfect to travel with. We just check it in straight away and use a sling at the airport. You can get a check in bag for it.
Z sleeps in it all the time at home. It is his nap chair! I have no wish to change it for any other buggy :)

We got the sun shade for it and the breezy cover (so that air circulates through the canopy) We use the breezy canopy wintertime too since he likes to look out from the sides.

The rain cover is perfect!

I had the bebe confort Loola last time and going to stick with it. We have two small cars and it fitted into both boots. Also windoo carry cot is a lie down car seat if you have to do long journeys and big enough to last baby a good while lying down. All the bits: car seat, carry cot and buggy just click in so no need for adaptors and it's really light. Buggy seat can face you or away and loved talking to ds as I was pushing him.

Learnt on a teaching course from language therapist that one of the things re behaviour and language is that research has shown deterioration in these things in young people nad they think it's to do with families not eating together, but also in the olden days (my mum would be shouting at me now!) the big prams always had babies sitting up and facing the 'driver'. This meant the baby/ toddler watched and saw how adults interact and picked up on behaviour. Hence the seat facing backwards appealed to me. Obviously it is only one contributory factor.

My advice is to go with what you like. The lool and all its bits was expensive but I really have had my use out of it and lucky to get a number 2 so will get money's worth.

Have to admit though did get a little Maclaren which now stays in the back of my car for short trips and we use it when we go away - especially flying as the baggage rules have become really restrictive. You can get cheap ones though.

Buggy shopping is exciting. Most shops will let you order and pay and then colloect near the birth. Don't leave it until after as you need to take the baby home in a car seat and most fit a buggy nowadays.

Beware though as some manufacturers take their time delivering so order in plenty of time.

Glasgow pram centre on line were wonderful too. Everything delivered withing three days and all no problems. Often quite a bit cheaper than high st shops. Good baby shops will let you try the buggy in your car and the seats to make sure you are happy. Try them all - I did! Was important to me that system was easy to use.

Going to breathe now. Have fun looking.

I have been looking a prams and cotsbeds for the last few weeks and my head is buzzing. We have been looking at the Mama & Papas Herbie Ziko or the Silver Cross Linear Freeway. I must admit I prefer Herbie as it is so easy to dismantle and the carseat is a pro-sleep which means it goes right back so you can leave baby in for more than one hour as they reccommend and is really easy to fit on the frame.

Has anyone got any comments on these.

Pram?

Hi guys I guess wel need to be purchasing a pram soon and there are so many out there I wanted your opinions on which are good/bad/ugly etc.
Mum in law is buying it and is a pensioner so dont want to choose anything too expensive, must be able to let baby lie flat as newborn and be lightweight/not too "bulky" looking/easy to fold as Il be using public transport quite a lot. Any tips welcome - thanks in advance.

We are getting this one :D

Weighs less than a maclaren, yet it has a pram mode and is rearward/forward facing, so it will be an ideal winter pram and a summer buggy! :happy:

What also sold me on it was it comes with a 4 year guarantee 8)

Things to remember are Pilgrim before you purchase your pramobile:

* Where are you going to store it at home - is it going to kept up all the time or will you put it in folded position when home?
* How heavy it is - I had a c-section so the pushchair I have (Graco Quattro Tour) was too heavy to lift up the steps so we also got a lightweight Mamu Formula 1 pushchair from Argos that was suitable from newborn so seat went right down. If you are using the buses alot, how easy it is to get up and down the steps of the bus and if you have to collapse it to get it on the bus are all factors.
* How small it collapses also if you have to put it in your car as what looks small in some cars is huge in others (for instance if you go in grandparents/friends cars).
* On Mothercare website (and there may be others) there are reviews of the pushchairs from people who use them.
* Also factor in how long you intend to use a big pushchair for - I bet there are thousands of parents who bought a big pushchair intending to use it until their little one was toddling who, six months on, bought a lighter weight one.
* Also how easy is it to move the seat from newborn to upright as if its too stiff - believe me - it will frustrate you (well it did me! but I am not sharpest tool in the box).

I have best of both words as I use the Quattro Tour at home as it has a big shopping tray and Rebecca likes to sit up high and almost upright and we use the Mamu (brand of Mamas & Papas) Formula 1 when we are out as it is narrow also and lightweight.

Happy shopping Pilgrim - don't let it give you a headache mind - there are so many different pushchair options out there it can get stressful.

I have been looking at prams over and over ...and over again :snigger: and still can't decide, I think I have it down to a few which are:

Quinny Buzz 4
Mamas & Papas, Ziko Herbie
icandy Apple
I do really like the bugaboo but think it is tad overpriced...

What is everyone else going for???

Maxi Cosi Mura V Quinny Buzz

Does anyone have any experience with the above travel sytems?

I really cannot make up my mind as to which one to go with and really want to make the right decision.

I think they are of similar price so that isnt even a deciding factor.

Any info/experience would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks ladies xx

I think I have fallen in love with the Maxi Cosi Mura 3, it seems a little more comfortable for the baby as the sides of the seat seem to be a bit risen so the baby would feel safer. The wheels look slightly bigger too and I will be doing plenty of walking to school and back with ds.

Altogether it looks a bit sturdier than the Quinny but I think I will have to test drive them both before making the final decision.

Been looking around at some prices too and it seems the Maxi Cosi Mura may be quite a bit cheaper aswell and not the same price as I previously thought which would be a lot better if my baby grows out of it sooner than expected - I tend to have BIG babies :snigger:

Thanks for all your input girls. Keep it coming! Im not very good at making decisions at the best of times let alone when I have 'baby brain' xx

just a few questions!
don't the babies get cold in those styles? i've seen them out and about and thought they looked a bit draughty unless its just me......
And are they as safe as the more bulky prams about? i haven't been pram browsing yet so i aren't sure whats what, just a couple of observations i made! they both look nice but whats their advantage over the older designs (not mary poppins ones either!), the ones with carrycots and bigger/bulkier seats?

Hi ya Chickapea,

They both come with old pram style option as well so I will be buying the pram bit too for those colder days.

Actually I think you buy that bit separately but at least the option is there with these two brands should you want this.

If you like something more bulky then 'Silvercross' do some lovely ones. I particular like the Silvercross denim. xx

What do you think of this travel system?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CITY-DRIVER-TRAVEL…A1%7C240%3A1318

Just seen it and think it looks good. How do I know whether the car seat will fit into our car though? In fact that goes for any car seat! Obviously when you buy them from the shops you can test them I assume? I thought that any car seat would fit into your car but DH has just asked me?

That is one very funky looking pram! Don't be fooled by the 'all car seats fit in all cars' thing though. They don't. you'd be surprised at how many combinations don't go together. As this pram system is from a dealer on Ebay see what their returns rules are. Most places will accept a return if it's not suitable.

RE: What do you think of this travel system?

I think that's a beautiful pram. My only concern is the size of it and will you go through your front door ok and once in do you have somewhere to store it up and when folded. It also looks a little bulky to push. And as you don't get to try it as the seller is in germany it may be worth trying to find the puschair in a shop in the uk and trying it out if you can. I also agree with Mrs Smiff re: car seat. I found have the isofix base with the snap detachable car seat the best !!!!, rather than having to strap bubba in every time you go out. May be worth checking it has something easy like that. (Sorry have not read the whole advert so if it has :O )

Having said that its a reasonable price and its gorgeous colours and fab style.

RE: What do you think of this travel system?

It looks nice, but I would say, it's a good idea to see/try out the travel system you want to buy, as it's such a big and important purchase, and you want to be able to see how it steers, folds, how it handles etc!

We did buy our pram/buggy and carseat online, as it was cheaper, but we had tried them in the shop first, made sure the pram went in our boot, and the carseat fitted the car.

We were amazed at how difficult the carseat thing was! I have a ford fiesta, and many 1st stage seats wouldn't fit, because the seat belt wasn't long enough! We either had to buy one with a base, or get a seat belt extender. We went for a maxicosi cabirofix, with a base, and as Sooz says, the base was brilliant! No fiddling with seat belts each time, just clip in and out!
When we brought H's next seat, dh has a peugeot, and we only had a choice of 3 seats that would fit in his car! There are so many variables, in relation to safe fitting of the seat, and different makes of cars, so I really wouldn't buy a seat until you are sure it will fit safely into your car.
Some car manufacturers have a list of carseats that are compatible, so you may be able to ring your car manufacturer?

I would say, unless you can find out for sure it will fit in your car, go and look at carseats in a shop, we have found babies r us, mothercare and Halfords all very good, and knowledgeable. They will be able to advise which seat will fit in your car, try it out, and show you how to fit it safely too.
That's another thing, even one demo of how to fit the seat yourself, can help a bit, rather than buying a seat that you have never been shown how to fit.

Sorry, don't mean to be negative, it's just we came up against a few 'hurdle's buying both our seats, so far, and just wanted to let you know some of things we found out, because we didn't know until we started trying them in the cars!!

Hi girls,

The more I think about it I know it would be sensible to try it out in the shop first. We have seen a couple in Babies R Us so will go back there in a week or so. I don't drive so I haven't got to worry about myself but DH's car is a Renault Megane so will have to try the car seat out.

Thought I'd pass on my buggy tip!
We've been out testing and are getting the Quinny Buzz. I have been a bit worried about how quickly they grow out of these type of buggies though and so spending so much seems frivalous. I went on EBay and have got a really good condition Quinny Buzz for only £200. There's plenty of good ones on there as so many people have a second baby quite quickly and need a double or else move to a light weight stroller once the baby is big enough.
