We've just moved into a new house and there's no room in our hall/downstairs for our pushchair (baby jogger City Select). DH reckons an outdoor plastic storage cupboard could be the best thing but I was just reading that this makes pushchairs go mouldy. Having just invested in a brand new pushchair I want to do our best to look after it!
Car boot is the obvious option but DH often uses the car for work so there's a reasonable chance we won't have constant access to it, plus we have onstreet parking so not super convenient to negotiate baby and 2 year old on the pavement outside.
Anyone else been in this situation? Would love some advice
It's quite small downstairs (at the moment - pending building project in ~6 months), entrance way with stairs almost straightaway, leading to living room/dining room on left and teeny kitchen straight ahead! There isn't a cupboard under the stairs (small outside cubby instead) and there's no porch.
I could wheel it into the dining room... not ideal but better than outside in the rain (we're in Yorkshire!) or mouldy in a cupboard.
Could you get a garden store for the frame and bring the seats in? My friend used to leave her frame outside (it did bugger the wheels eventually but they were air pump ones- can't remember what the select is)
We had a City Select and we bought one of those bathroom door coat hooks - the metal ones with several hooks. The two seats hung on these hooks on the hall side of the bathroom door, and the chassis we just slid to one side with the wheels popped off. However, you can buy proper pushchair hooks to hang pushchairs on the wall and the City Select would hang very flat and out of the way. I wouldn't put the seats outside. The chassis would probably be ok.
