    This is like i have for Jack, except mine is blue checks (older model)
    I love it, i have a stroller but always go back to this one
    The newer models you can get a carrycot attachment, i never had this as it folds completly flat for baby and didn't really need it
    The only thing i don't like about it is that it is quite bulky when folded down, i never attempted to get on a bus or anything with it, as it never seemed to stay fastened togther
    I was told that it could be folded one handed but i'm buggered if i know how to after 2 yrs!!!!

    Though saying that i didn't get instructions with it as i bought it off someone, who had used it 3 times and realised it didn't fit in the car properly LOL

    I had and still have this one, but in blue and white checks (might be the same one ? ) I love it and will probably get the newest version of it when I have no. 2 If you compare it to the graco's they arent bulky, Jo if you push down on the frame when collapsing it theres a catch that clips together so that it doesnt come apart when folded!

    I had a travel system - Graco. I love the actual buggy, and still use it and will use it for the next one too but if I was buying all ovre again I wouldn't go for a travel system again. Not a fan of them, didn't like putting the car seat onthe pram so I was just taking her out of the carseat to put in the buggy which defeated the object lol.

    https://i13.ebayimg.com/02/i/000/a8/14/b52d_2.JPG

    but i love carry cots for new babys

    swaddle them in blankets and if your out and baby falls asleep when you get home you dont need to disterb them to put them in cot / mosses basket as carrycot is more then comfy anough

    i used the carry cot instead of a mosses basket for Harley

    and in the summer wqhen its hot they can strtch out in carry cots they seem all cooped up in carseats with straps etc

    I had the Mutsy urban rider, loved the traveller lay back car seat, had the ajustable back, 3 position, so it looked like a carry cot, with hood and apron and so easy to click in and out from the frame , had the stroller seat, and also a car fun seat.. I do alot of walking so it was perfect, but not if you use the car alot, in and out of the boot it is heavy and you need a big boot, my parents brought it for me.. have it in the red...

    I had the Graco Quattro Baby Classics travel system in "Central Park." It's a full-size stroller that the car-seat/carrier fits into for when the baby's small, but you can also put the baby when it's tiny in the stroller because it's seat full reclines & it has a 5 point harness (couldn't put a tiny baby in a regular stroller without that). Anyway, the rain-hood completely pulls all the way down toward the stroller lap-tray/stroller bar and leaves a gap upwards so you can look down in like a pram. The only "Con" is that the baby isn't facing you like in a Pram-only type set-up. But it's a VERY versatile stroller, not so much as a Pram-only would be, you know? The Bugaboo is soooooo nice, but soooooo $$$ and very versatile, I must say.

    We also have an old Peg Perego stroller that the bar flips back & forth, so either the baby can face out or you can face the baby. It's GREAT!! We have a boot that fits over the bar & foot rest (which hooks up) and it makes it JUST like a Pram. I don't think they make that model anymore & I don't know what the model is called. It's probably considered a full-size stroller, but it's on the smaller side, so it doesn't take up a lot of trunk space or space when you're trying to get it on a public bus, etc.
