I have a 11week old dd and just moved her from her carrycot on the micralite into the bee yesterday.
Was really disappointed with the push, felt 'heavy' and hardgoing one handed. Really hard up kerbs too.
DD however was happy in it!
I can't believe i've spent so much on a pushchair i don't like now. I have it on ebay already, but maybe i need to give it longer to see if i do like it? And stop comparing it to micralite as that has the rear air tyres so will push differently.
Everyone raves about their bees and i was reluctant to buy one if im honest but thought it was the best compact rear facer there was.
Most people that have it haven't actually tried the Micralite first. If they did, they might not hold their bee in quite such high esteem. Have you decided whether to get an alternative to the bee or just stick with the Micralite?
right, i've taken it out again, and its a keeper! Its small nippy and is a good push for what it is tbh. DD seemed comfy in it too. Will pack it away now i've tested it! And keep her in carrycot til she's truly outgrown the micralite. Would love the all terrain kit but don't think they make it anymore?
Are the front wheels on your bee misbehaving? I love mine but after 4 weeks use it is behaving like a wonky shopping trolley, all heavy and unruly and impossible to get up kerns. We took it back to John Lewis and they said there's been a problem with front wheels and bugaboo are sending new wheels out to anyone who asks. Might be worth investigating, though it sounds like you have an alternative you prefer anyway.
hi i don't think mine is part of the batch with the wheel probs as i checked this out, and is reason why i was keen to use the bee before she totally outgrew micralite cc in case i had any probs with it. On second use i rather liked it tbh.
Such lazy journalism...I just came searching for the MN threads where all these mums are up in arms about it, because I started a couple of threads about the Bee myself. Searched on the quote and found this thread.
