    a word of advice would be to get a parent facing pushchair definiatly so you can interact with LO while you are out. and write a list of must have things for your pushchair like size, weight, types of handles, basket size etc xx

    When DD was newborn up until last week we had a Mamas & papa's Pliko Pramette..It was lovely when she small to have her parent facing but when she outgrew the pram mode and we put her in buggy mode she was so exposed it was ridiculous. Even the footmuff didn't cover her so we got rid of it and brought a Mama's & Papa's Luna Mix...We love it.. It's so light and easy to assemble, much simpler than the Pramette even with my DD in it.

    The only downside to the Luna that we've found thus far is that to recline it is a bit of a kerfuffle because it's a toggle whereas the Pramette was just a click thing..Also the Luna doesn't have the parent facing option which suits us fine as we discovered that the more alert DD became the more interested she was in seeing what was going on around her as opposed to staring at us the time we were out :flower:

    I have a Quinny Buzz 3 and Quinny Zapp Xtra. Both can be used from birth. The Buzz is quite bulky though but the Zapp Xtra folds down to literally nothing.
    I've heard good things about Bugaboos and Stokke too!

    We got a mama's & papa's tundra and it's amazing. Like someone else said you should have a list of important features. For us it was all about the wheels, we were only interested in big rubber wheels and not too expensive. The tundra has wonderful big rubber wheels, the seat is nice and big and comfortable, suspension is great, and it was only about £200. I think the color is ugly, I wanted an all black one, but it's nice quality material so it's alright. We mostly only go outside on walks so it's great for that but when we need to go in town it works there as well!

    I've got a Mamas & Papas Ultima. I love love love it! Especially that it comes with a Surefix stand, I used it loads when she was tiny in restaurants with the carseat on so she wasn't staring at our feet :lol:

    The mama's and papa's Ultima looks really good. I want a multi positioning so parent facing , big wheels as I will be doing lots of walking , need a big shopping basket. The ultima seems to cover all this so think I will go for that :D

    Have you been anywhere and tried pushing them? I hated any that had just a bar instead of two handles to push. We have pliko pramette and never had any probs. We bought a seperate footmuff (rather than the apron it comes with) and Liam is always really snuggly x

    Yeah I have been to loads of shops and pushed loads around My favourite was the Silver cross freeway but when I pushed it round and asked for a demo it was quite bulky. Lots of people are advising me to go with Mama's and Papa's
