Our family has recently gained a new, tiny member which meant I've spent at least three months pram-hunting. We picked this one principally for the car-seat, which you can use lying flat for the first few months. I preferred this as firstly, it meant baby's little neck wouldn't be put under too much pressure and secondly, unlike regular car-seats, there is no limit on the time they can stay in it. (Also, just to be girly, it LOOKED LIKE A PRAM. Can't stand these ultra-modern things which don't look pram-like.)
The car-seat/pram is certified for overnight use if you buy the mattress (about £12). This was handy as midget was far too wee for even his crib. He's slept in it almost exclusively for nearly three months now.
Car-seat is everything I hoped for. He looks perfectly comfortable lying in it, and I don't worry if he's slept over 2 hours.
It's good and sturdy, I don't worry he might get hurt if someone bashes into us.
The pram is easy to move, turns easily, and is generally a joy to push.
HEAVY. Honestly, if I'm only getting out the car to go a short distance (say, into the doctors) I tend to just carry him in my arms, it's far easier.
You do practically need a degree to put it up. Also three legs. I understand that they want to make it safe but designs like "pull up these two knobs, push down on the safety catch with one foot, push in the middle with the other foot" just result in me falling over.
Not cheap! I think we paid about £800, inc isofix base.
Bulky. You need two car seats at least for the car-seat, and honestly in my Alto it pretty much just takes up the whole backseat. Also, pray for shops which don't put rails too close together or you may end up trapped.
Jané raises the bar in the four-wheel pushchair market with its light and versatile new ‘Unlimit’. Its sleek, state-of-the-art chassis is fitted with four striking large diameter wheels which run smoothly over all terrains to give baby a comfortable ride. This pushchair has a removable reversible seat unit offering you the option to chat to your baby face to face, or let baby look out at the world. And to keep your little one safe there are armrests and a bumper bar for extra security and peace of mind. The 100% anodized aluminium oversized oval tubular chassis (43x25mm) is exceptionally strong yet lightweight, while the low-profile wheels with ball bearings make it far lighter to manoeuvre.
