Just a question about buggies


Im only TTC but we were talking today at my MIL's as my SIL is expecting and was looking at buggies when I said I wouldn't want a travel system type as I wouldn't want my baby in the car seat all the time id rather have a pramette (mamas and papas type) and a carseat that just stayed in the car not one that clicks onto the buggy. MIL looked at me like I just said i was going to strap our baby to the roof rack! she went loopy saying i was being stupid and id change as soon as we have our own and how would we move the baby from the car to the pram when i go out - well id just take them out wouldnt i, if they were asleep in the car surely me moving them to laying down in the pram would be just as much of a fuss as trying to get the carseat unstrapped and moved to click onto the pram without waking them up.

Am I being naive or does everyone just have the travel system types for very little babies now?? I drive by the way so our baby would never be on public transport if that makes a difference?

I have to say it does make things alot easier, car seats are SO heavy!

We have a mothercare mychoice which is described as a travel system but the carseat attaches to the chassis rather than onto the pushchair part if that makes sense?
I really wanted a pram with a carrycot/pramette 'bit' as I walk everywhere and wanted baby to be able to lie flat for long periods so it's sort of a compromise between the two. If she's asleep in the carseat and I'm only popping into the shops for a few mins, I put the carseat on the wheels, otherwise she's laying in the carrycot.
I think your MIL is suffering from the wide-spread 'crazy MIL disease'!

I have a travel system and swear by it!! I can clip a buggy a pramette and the carseat to mine!! Having so the car seat connects to the buggy was so so handy when doing quick trips! If I was shopping for the day LO would always be in the pramette (she's outgrown that now and is inthe normal buggy bit) it's good to have the carseat to clip to it just incase! You don't have to use it if you don't want to.
At the end of the say it's everyone personal choice!!!
Good luck xxx

When DS was very little and we were only going to be out for a little bit (like an hour), we kept him in his car seat as it is soo much easier than trying to get his little body in and out. If we were out for longer (not often when he was little) or going for a walk then we used the pram.

Now he is much more robust we tend to take him out of the carseat and into the pushchair (he has outgrown the carrycot), mainly because it is too heavy to lift the carseat, but like today when we just popped into a shop and he was asleep instead of waking him we just took the carseat. It is very easy to click and unclick the carseat, especially if you have a base.

we've also got a travel system which you can use the chassis to either attach the car seat, carry cot or the buggy part. It's so easy to just pop Lucy's car seat out of the isofix base (so no messing with seat belts etc) and onto the pram chassis, it doesn't wake her at all and when it's cold and raining I'd much rather do this than be faffing about taking her out of the car seat and into the carry cot. We did use the carry cot part when going for walks etc though rather than the car seat!

Ok so it may be that ill have to get one as you all say for short little trips where its easier but just use the pram bit wherever I can I just dont like it when you see babies that are clearly too big for those first little seats but still in them and I think its that thats put me off! Will have to relook at it when its our time to buy I think, thanks girls!

We rarely take the car seat out of the car (we have the Silver Cross 3D, with carseat).

I had a travelsystem (well we still do its in the cupboard) the only reason i got a new pushchair was because it was too bulky, but they are handy xx
