Silver cross linear

Been looking through hundreds of prams and think this might be the most suitable, just wondering if anyone has one and could give me their opinions on it?

I was tempted by the maclaren which I can see many people rave about, only thing that puts me off that one is that you can't have baby facing you!

It really does depend on your lifestyle. if it will be in and out of the car or needs folded regularly it is a pain because it can only be done in 2 parts, if you are on and off public transport it would be difficult for this reason too and it's crap if you will be walking on rough paths as the suspension is pretty much non-existant.

Basically if you walk around a relatively well paved town, have space to store it upright and won't be folding regularly it's not the worst but far from the best.

I also hated the Maclaren as it was clunky, horrible to push and had a narrow seat.

Thanks squtternut, do you mind if I ask what you'd recommend I take a look at instead?

I had the SC linear for DS, I had packed it off to the loft by the time he was9 months and had replaced it with a Baby Jogger City mini.

It was perfect for those tiny baby walks as it looks like a proper pram, but it was huge and clunky to fold in two parts I'll never forget the day it wouldn't unclick at sainsburys and I had to get the customer service man to help, it took up the whole boot space when ever we went anywhere and I couldn't leave it with my mum or childminder as it didn't fit in their boots.

If we ever have a second child I'll just buy the pram insert and car seat clips for the city mini, which is fab.

If you are set on the SC though, I am selling one!! :o

Dietcoke it depends on your lifestyle.

Do you walk, use the car or public transport most often?

Do you walk in the city, town paths or off road bumpy groung most often?

Is storage space an issue?
