Dc3 is due and I really don't want to be using the double all the time. So I am wondering whether I can put him/her in an umbrella fold. But I hate not being able to see my 2yo so I don't think I can manage not seeing a dot.

(We already have 2 buggy's so I am not inclined to by a new forward facing one with a carrycot etc. If I can fit a carrycot on a techno/,obaby that would be good. )

Oh and I really want it for next to nothing off eBay.

Why does it need to be umbrella fold?

Closest thing I can think of is the M&P switch or P3 pramette

Because I can't be doing with 2 piece folds or bulky pushchairs

P3 pramette then is the closest I can think of although I'm out the loop now mine are older.

You can stick a soft carrycot on a maclaren XT I reckon.

Baby jogger vue.

Maclaren techno xlr has a carrycot if that's the one you have.

I think there is a new cosatto reversible pushchair it's called a to and fro and it's umbrella fold.

Older designs are njoy bubble. I've seen these second hand on local selling pages. But they don't come up very often as it's not a common type of pushchair.

OK thanks a few options here! Thanks

None on eBay tho. That is disappointing!!

If you have a maclaren already you can just start with a soft carrycot clipped to the d rings, something like the Phil and teds cocoon or the baby jogger vue one.

Gum tree? Where ate you? Just done a quick search and one in Kent for 50£ and one in London for £85.
