help please i am pregnant with my first baby and struggling on best pram/ travel system options. I really want something that has a carrycot as i will be having a winter baby but also need something that copes well off road as i will be walking the dog every day on uneven bridal paths etc. i dont like 3 wheeler prams, need something with extendable handle as im 5ft2 and husband is 6ft3! also something that will fold small to fit in a ford ka boot and not break the bank! i love the babystyle oyster and mamas and papas sola but reviews i have read are scaring me.

Have a look at the Mutsy igo - you can get air filled tyres for off road use, it folds v small, has an extending handlebar and comes with two choices of carrycot. I am a bit obsessed with it grin Only thing I don't love is the price but it seems to have better features than other pushchairs in similar price range.

I have the Maclaren Techno XLR. Lie flat stroller with extebdible handles (im 5'2, dh is 6'2). Compatable with recaro carseat and a carrycot.

My advice would be to go to Mothercare, M&P and John Lewis. Play with them all, try the carseats in your car and the your boot. Then go away and shop around online for the best deal.

City jogger

Tbh you will struggle with getting an off roader in a ka boot. The city mini gt is fab and you can get a carrycot if you can forgive its 3 wheels. It doesn't look like a traditional 3 wheeler though, more of a city stroller with hidden talents!

You can get a baby jogger city mini with 4 wheels, not 3. The main problem is getting something to fit in your boot with air filled tyres as the off roaders are usually quite big and also often 3 wheelers.

How about a sling, followed by a backpack thingy? The mountain buggy/ out n about nipper are great but I expect they'd be too big.
