We are going on our first family holiday to Spain in September and our LO will be 3 months old. We've got a quinny buzz which we don't want to take with us as it's a) too bulky and b) too expensive to get bumped about by handlers.
What would people suggest we take? We've got a baby bjorn but don't think that'll be practical for a whole week. I know ideally we'd take some kind of McClaren but I don't think there's anything suitable for babies less than 6 months.
Anything that lies flat will be fine, there are some (of the more expnsive) Maclarans that would fit the bill. Just remember that small wheels are hopeless on sand!
You can get buggy bags that I would definitely recommend (from mothercare or kiddicare). Just get the check in person to put the tag on the bag handle and zip the buggy in before you hand it over at the bottom of the plane steps.
Our loola has survived loads of flights packed like this.
We took our Micralite (has a travel bag) & carry cot to the west coast of the USA & Greece and it was fine. If you feel v. precious about your buggy though get a lightweight Maclaren, our Quest has been everywhere else.
