Am home on bedrest so doing some research... Any knowledgable mums: do you know of a buggy which fulfils all these criteria? I'm so fussy!
*takes a maxi cosi cabrio carseat *takes a buggyboard *quite lightweight + folds in one piece *small when folded - fits into boot of Corsa *Reclining seat (so not Quinny zapp) *Some kind of shopping basket (again not Zapp)
I also like funky looking buggies so it would be nice if it looks good too... Thanks
Hi thanks for all responses! I'm just coming up 22 weeks with DC2. Have had a zapp and a Buzz for DS, both were good in some ways but the ability to recline is important for the new LO and I just found the buzz enormous and bulky! Hubby liked it for going round car boot sales though.
I was thinking of the Bee myself but buggy board facility will be quite important as DS will be 2.5 when LO comes along. Budget not too much of an issue, for the right one!
Haven't heard of the micralite, must investigate. What's the Icandy cherry like?
a teutonia! i have the 3 wheeler but one of the 4 wheelers fold up smaller and they can take their own buggy board. are really comfortable for nb too and tick all your boxes. places in the uk have started selling them too. hth.
baby jogger city mini. weighs same as zapp, but reclines, with a basket, and takes maxi cosi. has the best reveiws I've ever seen for a from birth forward fcing buggy. not too pricey either. I would use your buzz till baby was 4-5 months and then sell it and the zap and just use baby jogger.
Just to warn you a lot of "from birth" buggies only have a 150 degree recline. For me personally I would want at least a 170 degree recline. If that bothers you at all I would email the manufacturer of any buggies you like to check to what degree they recline to. Off the top of my head I know the Baby Jogger City Miny, Maclaren XT, ryder and quest recline to 150 degrees and the Maclaren XLR reclines to 170 degrees.
Are you looking to buy new or second hand?
Does it have to take the car seat?
My suggestions are the luna, the cosatto venture, the red kite 3 wheeler (can't remember it's name), the britax beep, XLR, cosatto dixie, cosatto swift.
I've got a Stokke. It's lovely and unusual but is a bugger to get into the car as only the back wheels 'fold' down. I do love it but I wouldn't get it if I could go back in time. It does fit a couple of your criteria, but it would probably not go in an Corsa. Plus it was bloody expensive! I just wanted to warn against it in case it was one you had considered.....
