Thinking I had this all sewn up DS2 suddenly having huge paddies all the time so want him rear-facing as think more attention would help. DH will seriously flip or have me sectioned, but what can I get easily that's cheap and will accommodate a large 2 yr old - 102cm tall and 16kg?

mamas and papas mpx they are always on ebay, urban detours have large seats and the model called quantum is parent facing (the others are not)heres one on ebay 250834227888 to give you an idea

just noticed the weight perhaps not an mpx, but i know the urban detours are really easy to push and i can not see why the quantum would be any differant

Thanks - I currently have 2 UDs so know how fab they are, I've been keeping an eye on nursery value too as they sometimes have reworked ones on there

I'll keep an eye on ebay

On another thread (can't remember which) someone said pushchairs in America are tested to a greater weight limit than in the UK.
If you look at the Mamas and Papas USA website, they talk about a weight limit of 50lb (about 22kg) for the sola and urbo.
Might be worth a check on the MPX on that basis, or other makes? Comparing weight limits on US websites as opposed to UK sites?

In America M&P's is Peg Perago as it is in Europe.
