hi i am expecting number 3 next month and need to buy a pram, was going to buy a second hand one. had a phil and ted before which i loved. wanted something not to heavy folds down well looks nice but you can push easily on different terrain. does anyone have any experience with a mamas and papas skate pram, or jane 360? any other recommendations. thank you so much!

I've got a skate, it's quite heavy though, folds down easily, tis a little bumpy on different terrains but I find pushing it along grass will send DS to sleep so I don't mind smile TBH I like it but tis more of a pavement pram

I had a skate, and as gracie says its quite heavy. The seat / bassinet is great, though if you buy second hand it'll probably come with an odd harness which I didnt like. We live in Switzerland and used it for various terrains, but wasnt frankly up for outdoorsy activities as it was too heavy and the front wheels arent pneumatic. Did you consider a second hand mountain buggy instead - i think they are lighter and more all-terrain, but not sure how compact it folds.

I would look at a Mountain Buggy, or a Nipper, or a Baby Jogger Elite or Summit.
