    Anyone regret buying the one they have?

    Im known to switch pushchairs so many times , but i really dont want my silver cross anymore. Its just not for me :(

    OH just says dont be stupid , but i am the one that has to push it around all the time and i just dont get along with it!

    Anyone else feel the same with there prams?

    Also how much shall i sell it for ? Its orginally £334 and been used for about 4 months ( i have a little stroller to use while i look for another decent pram)

    Anyone recommend a light wieght , eas stroller that i can easily push with one hand ( i have to hold on to carly) Thanks :)

    I have the silvercross 3D too....and I'm actually in the same situation as you.

    It's just not working for me that well,it's so impractical!
    Can I sit and wait here on your thread for suggestions?

    Im glad someone else thinks so too , its really bulky and i can't seem to hold carly hand as well as push the pram at the same time.
    Plus being in first floor flat and having to go up stairs! Its killing me!

    *pulls up chair* ill sit here and wait for suggestions too :lol:

    The wheels scare me :lol:

    I had a second hand one 3 wheeler with carly and that was great. It went along time ago though.
    Argh i just wish i played around with it before i jumped into buying it!

    I might just buy a stroller , i have a cheapy one already but it looks tacky and i dont really like it :lol:

    Im thinking of this https://www.mothercare.com/Silver-C...ing=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=44333031&mcb=core

    Perfect also to chuck my starbucks in the holder :rofl:

    And or this one https://www.mothercare.com/Petite-S...ing=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=44333031&mcb=core

    But then i wonder if when ella grows she will be too cramped in it??

    Anyone have these or any idea what they are like??

    i have the bugaboo cam and although maddi's still in the carry cot i can't praise it highly enough. i too have been looking at the dazzle thinking about this for a second stroller/pushchair - i really like it :) for next year when maddi's ready for a stroller.
    what sorts of things are you looking for ladies, a pushchair or whole travel system, i no your in the US amy so this might not be helpful :blush: sorry honey, but have you seen these kay, i really like these too:

    https://www.mothercare.com/Silver-C...ing=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=44333031&mcb=core

    https://www.mothercare.com/Silver-C...ing=UTF8&m=A2LBKNDJ2KZUGQ&n=44333031&mcb=core

    or what about a quinny- maybe a zapp or a buzz - you might have more of an idea than me though kay as you already have carly.

    also, just a thought, hasn't sabby just had a new pushchair? she might be able to help?

    ok im rambling sorry girls i just do like stoller talk :blush:

    We have a quinny zapp that we keep in the car but I'm thinking about replacing it with a Zia now that Hannah can go in the pushcahir (we only used the zapp frame with her car seat) as it reclines whereas the zapp doesnt

    I love my Pliko - it is the lightest of its type (travel system) around and it folds so well - which is excellant as I do a lot of travelling - but i often find myself wishing i had a three wheeler which folds and is light as I live in the forest and need some extra suspension.

    I bought a stroller too, but i regret that - it does nothing that my pliko doesnt already do. Although it is lighter - it just doesnt fit in my boot! But then I think it will be much better than a travel system when he is older.
