Hi there,
I have a lovely Jane pushchair but a bad back due to lugging my 11kg 9m old about. I think I need a lighter pram for use everyday for going to shops etc. Please could you buggy experts recommend!
thanks

How much shopping do you do ie 1 carroer bag or 2-3 or 4-6 bags? I think basket size is key smile

graco mirage

saved my life - big fat baby then toddler and terrible bad back, plus dodgy village pavements

I must have tried a dozen buggies, then when I finally got this one I kept it for years and years, all the others I tried didnt match up at all

I bought mine 7 years ago, but it was £70 from mothercare back then

Nipper 360 is incredibly lightweight and fantastic for walking, you have to buy a seperate basket but it is a fair size and the pushchair seat has a big mesh bag on the back.

I would not get the Graco Mirage. It's a nightmare to push and even gives me back pain (unless mine is somehow faulty). You need to yank it up and push on the back axle just get up from road to pavement, and steering is hard with a toddler on board.

I can't really recommend anything, though. Lightweight pushchairs do not tend to have a lot of storage. Have you looked at the Baby Jogger City Mini? I know a lot of people swear by it, and it seems to have a fairly decent size basket.
