Most people go for a Maclaren Major Elite, they look normal but are bigger and quite tough, they can still can be folded up for buses and storage. If you think you are going to need a buggy for much longer you should ask your OT for an assessment and they will provide something. We have a specialist pushchair and a Maclaren as a 'spare'.

They often don't provide trays though, the best tray is a Trabasack.

Dd has just turned 1 she has delayed development she can't sit roll crawl stand etc and our current pushchair (mothercare spin) looks very uncomfortable for her. It doesn't seem to sit up straight and when she slouches she falls off the seat! We have a buggy as well but she has really bad separation anxiety so has to be parent facing or gets herself into such a state. I need one that can be parent facing has a big seat bit and can sit up straight and support her but can also recline (not asking for much an I?!) I don't want a special one just a normal everyday pushchair that doesn't cost the earth and supports her.ive looked everywhere but I can't find any decent one

Please please can anyone recommend one? smile
