Lightweight buggy suitable for flat

Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has any recent recommendations for a lightweight buggy/ pram suitable for living in a flat and carrying up and down two flights of stairs? Ideally I'd have liked to go to a shop to wheel a couple around but that's not looking possible at the moment!

I'd like something suitable from birth & potentially adaptable for older babies
Lightweight & easy to collapse/ set up whilst having a baby in one arm or in a sling
Happy to consider a stand alone buggy or part of a system.

I found a useful thread on here about this but was a couple of years old & id be good to get some recommendations on the ones that are out at the moment

@ronswansonstache Following this as I’m in the exact same situation! Looking at the Mamas & Papas Flip XT3 but would love other suggestions!

Bugaboo bee is a dream!

Also in similar position and looking at the XT flip. I'm also considering no bothering entirely and just relying on a sling but friends and reles tell me I'm being foolhardy. FTM

I'm looking at the Babyzen Yoyo for similar reasons.

We have the babyzen it is like a toy it is so light!

Thanks WK! That one looks good. It's hard not being able to check them out in real life as it's such a big purchase.

Any more for any more?

Babyzen yoyo! Folds up tiny, compact, suited our 500sq ft flat.

Not much room underneath for shopping or stuff for the park and does feel like it'll blow away on a windy day. Plus you can't lift off the bassinet part.

But it's great, we love it.

Do you have a car? We have to go up some fairly steep outdoor steps to get up to our front door and it just wasn’t manageable with a pushchair so we keep the pushchair in the car all of the time which saves lugging it.

Mountain Buggy Nano is a cheaper version of yoyo although not for a newborn and don’t think it comes with any adaptors

Baby zen yoyo

I used a McLaren XT when DS was small, very easy up & down stairs (I always bumped rather than carried) and great on public transport

Thanks all! Lots of votes for the baby zen yo-yo so will definitely check that one out...

I'd wait and see if you need a pram/buggy. We lived in a town where all the quick routes involved many steps (50-60s) and I used my buggy/ pram once - to go swimming as "containment" while changing and the improvement was not worth the faff with the pram.

You can get a decent amount of stuff in a rucksack while baby is in the sling on the front.

We have used a running buggy regularly from 6 months, the normal buggy and pram are never used.
