Is the Britax B Agile big enough for a 2.5 year old?

Currently have the Pliko Switch but want something simpler for DD, smaller in the boot etc. I don't want a simple stroller as I think it won't be very comfortable for sleeping (she likes to have her feet up but is too squashed in the Pliko) but can't really justify spending too much money on a different pushchair. Has anyone got the Britax B Agile? It looks comfortable and has a nice footrest and large sun canopy but wondering if it will last until DD is 3?

I think the Baby Jogger City Mini would be ideal - the B-Agile is actually similar, but IMO not quite as nice and I'm not sure it has the one-handed fold of the BJCM, but someone more knowledgeable will be along soon smile

I have the agile and my 2.5 year old is happy still. Genuine 1 hand fold too I love it

The City Jogger Mini is a 3 wheeler, I'm worried about it tipping over with a toddler in it. B Agile has got good reviews. And can get it from eBay for less than 100. As I will only use it for 7-8 months.

I also like the Hauck Malibu XL but don't like the way hauck pushchairs recline with a tie or similar, either sitting up or flat.

I have the city mini and my friend has the Agile, I much prefer hers as its more compact and feels a smoother push BUT the handle is a fair bit shorter. At 5ft 3 I prefer a taller handle and not sure I could push it for long.

The seat is pretty similar sized though so its definately big enough smile

Oh that's good, I'm short so that will be fine grin

I bought a Britax B Agile of eBay, now I'm worried about the reclining. Can't seem to do it with 1 hand and it's not very smooth, I usually recline once DD is asleep but very gradually and whilst walking. Don't think i can do it like this. I tried the Joie Litetrax 4 out in mothercare and loved it. Normal 1 hand recline, very easy to do. Hope I can get used to it.

I love the b-agile, have a four wheeler and it was great for baby but not so sure for toddler. i find it quite heavy to pack into the car boot, compared to my trusty maclaren XT. The recline on the maclaren is so much better and easier.the maclaren XT is comfy enough for DD to nap in. I am only 5ft but the Britax is a dream to push....just find it awkward getting into my fiesta....
Hope helpful

It arrived today and is lovely to push. DD loves it abd has lots of room in it. But reclining is a nightmare, i've watched several YouTube videos but can't make out how they make it look so easy. And the footrest doesn't seem to lift up? There are no instructions so will Google it tomorrow. So much nicer tgan a stroller though, I tried the silver cross pop in Mothercare, DD looked like she was going to slide off it any time but weight limit was higher than the rest.
