Parent facing stroller

(13 Posts)

I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations (or even really knew of any!) parent facing strollers? Or really lightweight pushchairs?

Currently have a Mamas and Papas Sola 2 which is huge and bulky and takes up my entire boot, and I always get dirt off the wheels on me when I try and pick it up angrymy DD has a complete meltdown if she can't see me so a forward facing one is out of the question and I prefer being able to talk to her.

I've only been able to find a Fisher Price one and the Joie Mirus which has awful reviews when parent facing sad

Does what I'm looking for even exist? I'd prefer not to spend loads as she's in the sling a lot anyway but would make my life so much easier going places!

Babystyle Oyster Switch?

Baby Jogger Vue?

I've never used either I'm afraid so can't advise on quality but they are both reversible!

Bugaboo bee.

Not as small as other strollers and defo pricey but it's fantastic. Ditch the sola and it can be your main buggy.

I've got the baby jogger vue, I like it.

Cosatto to and fro?
Looked at this for DD for a while. Faces both parent and world, whenever she's ready. smile

Armadillo flip from mamas and papas. Pretty lightweight and folds easily, don't know if it's lightweight enough for what you want though.

I don't know what I was doing wrong not to have found all these blushthankyou for all the ideas, got some googling to do all night when the baby isn't bloody sleeping

The shower cap idea is genius shockmy poor jeans and car get covered! Live in the middle of bloody nowhere so there's a lot of dirt envy

Mothercare Orb is front facing and can be turned outward facing. Brilliant buggy.

@Coughandsplutter that was the one I was going to buy but then went for the sola sadwish I'd tested picking the sola up and getting it in the car before I bought it now!

Fisher price do one. It’s forward or rear facing, lovely and light, one handed fold etc and was £60 in Argos. I have a bulky proper pram system too but this is ideal on public transport and doesn’t fill the boot of even a tiny i10. I got mine this summer and it’s discontinued stock but you might find one on eBay. At £60 I don’t care if it needs replacing once or twice before DS doesn’t need one!

I’ve got the cosatto to and fro (as I wanted parent facing too - the parent facing mode is only lie flat so my little one has been forward facing in it for the most part, she hated lying flat!

I had the sola 2 and its very bulky stopped using it and got a quinny zapp instead and its much lighter and folds down to about half the size of the sola. mine isn’t parent facing but the newer versions like quinny zapp flex now have a parent facing option.
