When my husband and I started looking for a pram before our baby was born we had no idea what exactly we were looking for! We looked at several prams and finally decided on the my3 after having a thorough demonstration from a member of staff and a practice run around the shop. It sounded as though it suited our needs perfectly. Great for outdoors, plenty of colours to choose from, the rain cover and footmuff was all included in the price and although it was quite bulky when folded it fit perfectly in the boot of our Renault Clio which we had at the time. Also if we purchased the maxi cosi car seat we could use this on the wheels for short stops out and about to save disturbing the baby if he fell asleep in the car.
The pram can be used from newborn until the child no longer needs to use the pushchair around 4 year old. The pram is very spacious for a newborn. My baby was a big boy weighing over 9 lb and he had plenty room until he was around 4 and a half month when he was more alert and I converted in to the seat unit. Doing this was easy.
Simple instructions advise how to do this and I never had any problems in doing this. The pram simply clips in to the wheels part of the pram either facing you or facing away, and if the baby falls asleep you can simply recline the child without disturbing.
The three wheels make it great for being outdoors. The pram has been great when we have been out and about on long walks and is incredibly easy to steer. We have been on holiday within the uk when we had snow and were still able to get about with the pram.
I did however have a few problems with the pram.
The shopping basket on the bottom is quite small and if you hang your changing bag over the handle bars it can be tricky to get to it without removing the changing bag.
When my child started teething he would chew on the bar that goes across and took a few chunks out of this so I decided to remove this and no longer use it.
After having the pram for around 9 months I started having problems removing the seat unit from the wheels and on one occasion I was in a car park for almost ten minutes before I was able to this. Mostly after the 9 month I was rarely able to remove the seat unit on my first attempt which was incredibly frustrating.
I did however have no problems removing the car seat from the wheels part of the pram and thought this aspect of the pram was great.
Overall I would say the pram is good but I would not buy it again. Having had my second child not to long after my first I had to buy a different pram and I was glad to not have to use this pram any longer.
Summary: Good pram most the time but the bad points to the pram would prevent me from recommending it.
