The Loola Up does lie flat (The Loola doesn't, however) and folds with the seat on. Not sure about a newborn insert but the seat is nice snuggly material on one side and DS was always really snug in it with a blanket when he was newborn - I never had the carrycot.
It doesn't get very good press on here but I really love mine. Still use it for DS who is now 2 in preference to the umbrella fold thing I have which is getting increasingly hard to steer as he gets heavier.
yep i bought a new one,and loved it to begin with,when my ds got to about 16months i didnt like it,was nice parent facing,but didnt like it when it was forward facing so much, one thing i hated was the fact you cant pull it backwards(think busy shops) so you also cant go upstairs with it,
its VERY easy to push one handed though,lovely to push,its quite heavy to lift in/out of car but thats only because you can fold it in a one,if that bothered u could take the seat unit off.
Agree it's not great at being pulled backwards, but I find I can do so for a short distance which is generally all I need. Pretty much all the shops have lifts here so I don't think I have had to bump it up steps very often - I guess it depends on whether you see yourself having to do this or not
supposed to be because its a single wheel setup rather than having 2 wheels on the axle,but im not convinced as i know of a few other strollers which are the same,but dont have the same problem, have to say though their customer service is good,they replaced my full back wheel setup as i complained,didnt do it as much with the new wheels,but would wreck it if you had to pull it up stairs often.
The back wheels kind of splay slightly outwards when you pull it backwards. It's fine if you're just backing out of a shop or pushing the buggy back and forth to get the baby to sleep.
Actually thinking about it we used to live on a fairly steep hill and I had to drag the thing backwards up the garden every single time I wanted to leave the house. That was probably about 4-5 feet and uphill, though not up steps (the steps were too uneven) - I made a little track in the grass to do it.
It does tend to creak alarmingly and certain bits sometimes look as though they might break, but having seen the resale value I'm pretty much happy to work it into the ground and it hasn't broken yet I think it's more sturdy than it seems.
