Rear facing, one fold, smallish pushchair? Can only think of a bee. Any others?

Thinking of getting a bee but then I thought maybe there's something similar out there smile

Must be suitable from birth (dc4 is nearly 6 weeks old)

Rear facing, one part fold that doesn't take an engineering degree, looks good and lies flat.

Have had a bee before and loved it but do fancy trying something different.

All ideas appreciated thanks

There's the Njoy bubble but I don't think it's small folded - haven't tried it to know.

I have an njoy bubble and love it. It lies flat and has a big hood and its simple to change between front and rear facing. I would say its the same size as a maclaren xt folded. It can be a little stiff to fold.

If I had one criticism I would say the handle bars are a but too high ( I am 5ft 2).

There isn't anything like the bee, nothing sad

The njoy in the umbrella fold style.

Various larger things, not many of which have seats suitable from birth. The jane muum folds both ways and has an almost lie flat seat, it's technically suitable from 6months though. I think the angle is suitable but it may be that the harness or some other aspect isn't.

Stokke scoot. It's a different shape folded to the bee but still fairly compact and lightweight.

Dont buy a Scoot for a young baby. Its really not good for a sleeping child as they get bigger as there's no leg or calf support. For a newborn its hard to get them in and out because of the cave like seat. Plus there's no semi recline when they get a bit bigger - its lie flat or nothing! The new Easywalker Mini shows promise. The Versa is probably the best out there at present.

Maybe I should just get a ziko or something, she can manage without rear facing for 5/10 minutes!

In fact, if she's ff I might just turn the bee around and have it ff!

I have a second hand 2009 bee and it's still going strong with no faults or repairs as yet, mine is the third child to use it and I'm impressed as other buggies went rickety quickly
