Silver Cross Vs Modern Carrycot??? SIZE DOES MATTER

Advantages: style, comfort, size - does matter
Whoever says size does not matter is telling lies! If you have the room then always go for the bigger option (pram). I bought a more modern M&P carrycot type pram for my last baby - by the time we added all the bits and pieces on it came to £650.00 so no saving really, compared to a Silver Cross coachbuilt - you can now pick up brand new ones for £600-£650 on ebay. We used our M&P carrycot until my daughter was totally cramped - only about 8 months old and then gave in and bought a second hand silver cross coachbuilt pram (on ebay) - everyone loved it - the baby was comfortable, granny loved taking her for big long walks and everyone at the shops commented on how nice it was to see such a beautiful pram/real pram. It definitely encourages you to do lots of walking and its great for holding all the shopping bags/picnic/school bags/coats etc. I used to leave our baby outside to sleep in it and she was so comfy she would sleep for hours. When we eventually got rid of the SC pram we sold it again and got more than we paid for it - so you may say i had it for free - as long as you look after them they keep their value well. Unlike my M&P one which sold for less than a 1/3rd of what i had paid and it was in perfect condition. I got rid of the M&P pram before her second birthday as her head was touching the top of the hood and it was uncomfortable for her when sitting up - so you may say that this was used for her first 8 months and sat in our front room for the rest of the time with very occasional use! I would recommend a SC pram for everyday use and a good quality folding buggy for the boot of the car - best of both worlds that way. I have just bought her very own silver cross coachbuilt pram so that she can take her dolly for a walk in comfort - not sure if its more for me but i hope she is pleased on xmas day!
Summary: This one wins every time!
