I'm currently torn between getting a fixed seat, like a Cybex Sirona or Britax Dualfix, or a travel system such as a Pebble. I'm swayed from one to the other, because:
We live out in the sticks, so it's a 25 minute journey to get even to the supermarket. The current guidance is that babies shouldn't be in a travel system for more than 1.5 - 2 hours, and getting down to do the weekly shop takes at least that, so I'd have to use a pram anyway. The same applies if we go for a day out - leaving the baby in a travel system doesn't seem to be an option.
My parents and parents-in-law are at least three hours away - in opposite directions - so again we're going to have to stop on route to take the baby out of the car.
I'm not very tall, so I'm not sure how long I'd be able / want to lift a baby in a travel system.
The swivelling action of the fixed seats looks brilliant, but how grumpy might a new baby be at being lifted out of a seat (especially if asleep) to be put in a pram?
This last is my main concern, and I guess we won't know if it's going to be a good sleeper or not, but I'd love to hear your experiences.
Thanks in advance
Fixed seat or travel system - experiences please!
