I've bought a bee. It came brand new from eBay with cocoon, footmuff and loads of accessories. I've had to work it out myself from the instruction manual and haven't found it the easiest to put together and hoping a bee lover can help me with questions?!
I used the cocoon, it's great. Kept newborn DS very snug. When it got hot I just unzipped it and then eventually took it off. By that time he wanted to sit up a bit anyway. I never bought a liner, but you can if you want.
The seat is almost completely flat, the cocoon does lie flat.
No I don't find it complicated, it's such a lovely easy pram to use. DS is now 2 and I still use it.
I'm not sure what you mean by the lower seat. Do you mean the bit they sit their bottoms on? It just folds down. When they get bigger it extends, as does the back.
Problems, does the seat click into place when you move it about? Whenni'm laying the seats flat for the cocoon they feel a bit like the weight of the baby will have to hold them in place, rather than a nice firm click action, if that makes any sense at all?
I won't get a liner.
When you fold it up and it's facing you, is it simply, cocoon off, set as far forward as it will go, and collapse? I'm struggling to coordinate this, I keep taking the seat off by mistake then taking ages to get it back on.
Am I doing something wrong?
Tach me to buy off the Internet and not have some nice lady demonstrate!
The seats don't click back, it's perfectly stable though.
We just folded it with the cocoon on, didn't take it off until it got hot in summer. Just push the seat forward and collapse it. The edge of the hood sometimes catches on the handle bars so just push it through.
TBH what you are describing is totally normal (I think!). I am giggling because I thought the same when I got mine. The Bee is not the easiest pushchair ever to get to grips with and I was forever making the seat fall off or not being able to release it. Never mind the fact I fell over when I tried to unfold it parent facing!! Keep practicing and you will get it sorted.
