Pushchair for grandparents (for the baby but obviously grandparents pushing)

My niece is coming one day a week to be babysat by my parents and they would like a puschair to use here (I live with my parents) the pram that they were using is too big to fit through the back door. So, I was wondering if MN could please help with finding a pram. My niece is nine months so she can sit up, pull herself up etc. but my mum would still like to have a push chair that can rear face and world face (is reversible).

The list of requirements so far seems to be:
as above - reversible so faces both ways
smaller than an iCandy so doesn't take up loads of space and fits through back door
lie flat recline
will be sturdy

They don't need a full travel system so budget for new is less than £200 but if still looks really good then would go for a more expensive one second hand. The main use for it will just be walking round where we live on quite rough pavements so don't really have much of an issue with it going in a car and it won't be used very intensely.

We have seen the joie versatrax, certain hauck ones and silvercross reflex and I think these might be the closest to what they're looking for but there don't seem to be many that match all these requirements. my mum was quite taken with the maxi cosi lila but I don't think it would really be that small. Also, are four wheels generally better than three?

Mountain buggy mini with carrycot plus.

Three wheels are generally good as they're easier to manoeuvre and can cope better with rough terrain (although size of wheels is relevant too).

Thanks, that looks really good :)

Sturdy, reversible and lie flat will not mean small. The ones that are small and fold small often only have one of those 3 features. I’d go for something like the Joie Aire lite - it’s not reversible but has the rest. www.madeformums.com/reviews/joie-aire-lite-stroller-review/

Not rear facing but my mum loves the silver cross pop. Easy to fold and manoeuvre, carries a child upto 25kg, good sized seat, it’s lie flat and from birth. And despite 4 wheels is good on rough ground.

Hi @Dolphin123456789, I am interested in Lila too. I see you posted a few months ago, I'm wondering if your mum has been happy with the purchase?

Hi Greenbranch 😊Yes my mum did get the lila in the end. I think we're happy with it generally but it is definitely big. We sometimes find the buttons difficult to press to get it to go down but I don't think there would be anything truly better out there and we manage.
