We used the snugseat for our DD as she barely used the carrycot, they're around the £30 mark online and are designed to be used in the pushchair seat to give extra support to younger babies. They're very good (only problem is the colour is cream so will show any sick or other stains and need washing!)
DS outgrew it at about 3-4 months, it is a small bassinet - 8 weeks is mental though, that's a big baby!
We had a compatible car seat so used that or the main chair laid as flat as possible for a while. Once he was almost able to sit up we didn't worry about it, he was still well shy of the 6 months though.
Definitely get the snug seat insert, worth every penny. The seat doesn't actually lie flat because there's still a V where the bum goes. The insert has a wedge to make the seat more like a lie flat but it's still a bit upright. Worked wonders for me when DD was about the same age, had outgrown the bassinet, hated the car seat and had reflux!
