We need a second buggy, mainly for taking DD to childminder. We have a Quinny Buzz as main buggy but need one to leave with childminder which will fold down compactly. We'll also use it for bus/train journeys and hols. (Quinny is a nightmare on public transport, get glared at a lot and bus drivers tell me off) Can't decide whether to invest in a 'Mclaren'. A friend once said that whatever buggy I buy, I'll end up with a
Mclaren and once I have one I'll know why. Thing is, I'd like to get the use out of the Quinny as it was so expensive, plus I walk everywhere and as its rear facing can chat to DD so its lovely for that. However, it is cumbersome and takes up a lot of space. So, buy a good McLaren and end up selling the Quinny or, buy and cheap and cheerful buggy for childminder trips, if so, which one? Thoughts please! smile

how old is DD? personally i'd get a maclaren if you intend on using this type of pushchair more than 2/3 times a week its just such good quality and so easy to use.

She is 10 months and nap resistent (one 40 min nap in the morning) so needs to be something that she can sleep in - do you know which is best?

the quest is fab, i love my XT but you prob don't need that if you won't be using alot. the quest will lie back fine for a nap for that age and has leg rest to support them the mod quest is lovely colours!

Or if you are splashing out the XT in black is lovely!!
