Hi, have a look at the Babyzen YOYO from newborn, forward and rearward facing. Very City. Lightweight and folds with a flick of the wrist - really! My best pal has one and it truly is amazing, wish I'd bought one. Oh and it packs away in a bag - good if you travel a bit.

Charlieholland, I have just re-read your post. It sounds as though you didn't have your carrycot set up correctly, there are metal rods underneath the lining of the carrycot which lock into place and give it rigidity so the sides don't collapse. Have you finished using it now?

Take a look at an Uppa Baby Vista. It does everything you seem to be looking for, it is lightweight, has a huge basket underneath and is superbly well built.

It's also a good deal cheaper than an iCandy Peach (which is also v good but v expensive for the same features).

Thanks for the advice, really helpful to hear tried and tested reviews!

I have an icandy it's amazing.. Chasis is heavy, but pros out way the cons can push it with so much ease, I loved that I could turn my baby round, facing me when he was smaller, then when he was bigger facing outwards.

Carry cot I didn't find that good.. Even though you can use it over nite, when carry cot was positioned on the stand, it lifted the base up so your baby becomes raised (as in the sides don't come deep enough. Plus we used the car seat attachments on the icandy so the carry cot didn't get used a much. So If I had to purchase all again I'd by the icandy.. But not the carry cot.. smile hope this helps xxx

I don't think is is the right bit of MN for this query!

You IHT want to ask MNHQ to move your thread to 5)3 Pushchair topic or have a browse then start a new read there,

The best advice I can give is: wait till after the baby arrives.

Nearly everything bought before my first arrived was either regretted, unused, disliked or impractical. Sometimes all of those! I certainly hated the travel-system pram I bought... had to get another stroller to replace it.

Although, tbf, kids have had hours of fun playing with the pram's detachable carrycot as mini 'sleeping bag' until they could no longer squeeze into it. x

Help! I'm so confused. First baby due in March and struggling to decide on which pushchair to buy. Love the ease of use with the City Mini Jogger but baby can't face both ways (unless I opt for the Versa which I think is a lot heavier) and the carrycot isn't suitable for overnight sleep. Whereas the other option is an iCandy -has both these features but it's less easy to fold away. Any feedback on either? Is it helpful to have a carrycot that the baby can sleep in? Do you find the dual facing a valuable feature? Many thanks in advance.
