Does the Chicco for me stroller need a soft carrycot inside for a newborn?

you dont need it,its supposed to make it more cosy for a newborn,personally i would just use the fleecy lined cosytoes that comes with the pushchair,

i nearly bought one of these for my baby,but it was too long folded rearfacing to fit in my boot unless i took the hood off,

once you have practised folding it it will be ok,and once its worn in a bit,my loola was a pain to fold/unfold,but a couple of weeks of use and its really easy now,

yup thats what i liked,the carseat is FAB that comes with it,really padded,
and it folds really small when forward facing,
the thing i liked it that instead of needing a big buggy and a stroller for going shopping,i wud only have needed one buggy,

New pushchairs are always a bit stiff to fold I find

glad your happy i really liked it,and i had a chicco for my first baby which was great,
i wanted it as i needed something that folded in one piece when rearfacing,i would have had to take the hood off each time to fit it in the car,so decided against it!

I had one of these last year for my ds3, and loved it with the soft carrycot in, he was very snug in it. I got mine for a bargain off Ebay though BNIB for £20. You could probably use most soft carrycots for it though, so maybe you could get a cheap one off Ebay. Graco or Phil & Teds would fit great.

I didn't like the way it folded rearfacing either.

I used it rear facing all the time I had it. It is quite long, but you get used to it. I'd advise making sure you know how to fit the raincover though, as I found it tricky the first time I had to do it.

Why did I get id of it? Where to start.
Because I have an obsession with prams grin, and I needed something that would fold easily for getting on the one bus I needed to get that didn't take prams. It's a freat pram all in all though. I loved it with the car seat on.

Oh those are lovely! I wanted to get one for my car seat but DH was being an arse and said no. I'd say that would work
