I am looking for a good quality pram / buggy. We are new to the UK (from Canada) and am finding the product range to be quite overwhelming.
These are the features I am looking for:
Large wheels, with front ones that swivel (I really am looking for something with 4 wheels, not the 8 double wheel system)
Easy to push
the pram bed needs to lie completely flat
can be used from birth to age 3/4yrs
the pushchair seat needs to be able to sit upright and at least semi-recline, if not lie flat also.
Suspension would be really nice also.
Are there any other features I should be looking for? Does anyone have any suggestions? And where would I buy one?
This will be our 4th baby (older children are 7yrs, 6yrs, 4yrs), so we are not completely new to this, but it has been a while. And we literally have no baby things at all, as we gave away everything when we moved here.
I don't really use buses / public transport much, so that isn't really an issue. But I do a lot of walking, and so want something very comfortable for the baby to ride in.
Oh baby is due in Dec, if that matters in deciding.
I took a look at it online... and I am not really fond of the look of the pushchair component.... it doesn't look comfy, it looks small (like a child would outgrow it quickly), and it looks too "trendy" or "modern"? I guess I am wanting something a bit more classic/traditional looking.
Thanks again for the suggestion - I am open to any other ideas.
Have a look at the Mamas & Papas Pliko Pramette. It has a system where the baby can lie flat and not be strapped in, like a pram. Then you flip it over (not with the baby in it, obviously...!) and it turns into a great little pushchair.
There's an optional car seat that clips into the frame too. Have a look here
