Can anyone recommend a good pushchair for walking? Something that will push well on grass/slightly muddy paths

Citymini baby jogger worked really well for me.

Out and about Nipper 360

I have a BOB Revolution. I love it for mud and gravel and snow and off roading!

rholmes140 Sun 15-Jan-17 16:45:57

Brill I'll look it up x

We love the maxi cosi mura 3. It has three wheels and really good suspension for dog walks.

I second the nipper 360. I'm in Cumbria and almost all the parents who are into fell walking have one. I've taken mine up a few fells.

Bob revolution if you can get one, 2nd option nipper 360!

rholmes140 Sun 15-Jan-17 17:15:45

Do the ones with 3 wheels tend to be better then? I'm new to all this. I really like the Cosatto ones but that's because of how they look! Lol

We've got a three wheel icandy peach. It goes through the woods regularly!

newmumwithquestions Sun 15-Jan-17 17:18:21

Jane trider extreme. Has worked for us.

Writemove Sun 15-Jan-17 17:58:03

I always found three wheels better. The mura 3 also has one handle which is better for steering with dogs than two

Dizzywizz Sun 15-Jan-17 19:13:06

Yep, 3 wheels and one handle is best imho.

GizmoFrisby Sun 15-Jan-17 19:16:19

Out n about nipper here too love it

Ilikedogs Sun 15-Jan-17 19:32:54

We have a bumbleride indie, (reclines flat so no need for carrycot - although they do sell one, a fairly light 19lbs). but would say bob revolution is really good but bigger than ours so didn't get it as we used the indie as our main one to begin with. Also have seen the Out n about nippers and they look good as well.

Make sure you have space in your boot... some of the 3 wheelers can be quite large. One handle definitely best and in hind sight I would have had the wheels slimed when I first bought it as we've had a few punctures.

A sling grin

rholmes140 Sun 15-Jan-17 20:30:00

Brill thanks everyone. Definitely wouldn't use a sling walking the dog

GinIsIn Sun 15-Jan-17 20:33:36

We have the cosatto giggle, and although we haven't tried it yet (baby not due for a few weeks) a big sell for us was the 3 big sturdy wheels, which if they get muddy you can pop them off and run them through the dishwasher!

I looked at phil and teds but went with icandy peach (the 4-wheel one) in the end, I wasn't sure if it would be suitable because it doesn't have pump up tyres but actually it's worked really well in the woods round by us...needs a good clean after though! x

rholmes140 Mon 16-Jan-17 17:48:01

Brill thank you everyone. I'll take a look at them all smile

I have the britax affinity. Found it very light and was able to walk two dogs on either wrist whilst pushing it. I'm still using it 18 months later.

Emmaljunga edge. Swedish so built for all weather and all terrain.....last forever!

MustBeLoopy390 Tue 31-Jan-17 21:26:18

We like the Mothercare Xtreme, brilliant for one handed pushing (I need a stick) and has 3 'all terrain' wheels. Bonus being that it's a relatively cheap price and suitable from birth.
