What do you recommend for a mum's first buggy?
when choosing a first buggy i wish i had thought further ahead and considered a prm that could later be converted to accommadate a new born and a toddler as a result I am always switching buggies depending on how many kids im taking out!! Also bear in mind that you may end up with a c-section and this can make it hard to lift the pram. I have a mamas and papas pliko switch is really light and has been great folllowing my 2 sections much lighter than the silvercross one i had originally ordered.
When choosing a buggy we had a rough idea what we wanted, lightweight, able to fold and fit into the boot of my polo, something other half would be happy to push and top of my list a pram attachement. Our best tip was to continually stalk buggy's round shops! We finally tracked down the Icandy Cherry in Ikea leaping out from behind storage soultions!!! The Cherry fitted the criteria and we love it for out little boy.

I did a lot of research before buying our first buggy. We needed something that folded up small enough to fit in our hatchback, was light enough to be carried and hauled around by me and my dodgy back, and that could easily be taken on tubes and buses. I also knew I wanted more than one child if possible so wanted to get something that would last.
We opted for the Maclaren Techno XLR and it fit the bill in all respects. Together with the matching carrycot and Recaro car seat it forms a travel system that allows your little one to be parent facing at first, before moving on into the main pushchair.It came complete with footmuff, seat liner, headhugger and raincovers.
6 months after my son was born and all my friends were replacing their bulky pushchairs with lightweight strollers, we were still happily using the Maclaren. 2 1/2 years later, its still going fine with baby number 2, and my son is riding on a buggyboard at the back.
Its easy to push, great for public transport, lightweight, and snug for a newborn yet roomy enough to accomodate a child of four.
Money well spent!
I wanted a pram to do everything, which i got with the Silver Cross Sleepover, a beautiful looking pram modern yet traditional, it is light weight, large basket for all the shopping, sturdy - as i walk everywhere! and on all terraines and comfy for baby. We used it for Hollys moses basket too as it came with a gorgeous wooden rocking frame and as her everyday pram, its easy to assemble and desemble, and came with rain cover, foot muff etc all washable too, even linen to use when used as a moses basket. 18 Months on and we are still using it and it has been used to death on a daily basis and great to take on holiday too. Tried and tested in snow too and works a treat gliding through it, great for the post baby work out walks. I love this pram and would certainly get another one.
my son Rhys was born premature and he had breathing problems too
I all so live in the country side and we would often go off road for walks with are dog tank so really i needed a all rounder pram so i looked around and came the Jane with its easy snap off covers for easy washing and the car seat can be taken off with a push of a button i had the carry cot / car seat that can be angled to allow
baby to be in a more up right position was a life saver it is a bit big but i loved it
there prams are so easy to turn and are very safe as i have founds with most prams with 4 wheals curbs can be a dangrous time .
i was pushing my friends pram once it was a graco and as i came down the curb the front 2 wheals caught the curb and the pram and my self fell into the road i was lucky as i did not fall as i found my feet and jak sarah's son was OK his head miss the pavement by only a inch but it was too close since then i have stuck with 3 wheals and have never had this happen again and i fine its easy to turn so shopping is still fun i don't like the Quinn buzz it dose have 3 wheels but is a nightmare to turn
ANY ONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM AND DOSE ANY ONE KNOW OF ANY OTHER GOOD PRAMS MY SON IS 2 BUT CAN NOT WALK AS HAS C.P XX
