I'm buying the new Out and About Nipper for number 3. The pushchair is suitable from birth with the newborn I serf but I can't bed use whether to buy the carrycot or not. I prnew wee babies in carrycots but can't decide if its worth the extra £170. I still have A's Babystyle Lux with carrycot which I could technically use to begin with.
Would you buy the carrycot or not?

No, it's too much money for me for something that will only be used for a short time. I'm just using a lay flat pushchair this time round and don't miss the carrycot.

I would. We paid £200 for the I candy carrycot and it's been worth its weight in gold.

We are going for the birth inlay. It’s not ideal but it looks reasonably cosy so hopefully we won’t regret not spending the extra on the carrycot. Though having said that I’ve just checked and the carrycot is in the boots 3 for 2 offer, I’m tempted!!

Not at that price. Car seat adaptors?

I got mine second hand and bought a new mattress but I wouldn't pay full price. Can easy get away without one, using lay flat pram or car sear

I would have said yes a few months ago, as we had the carrycot with Zoe's Concord Neo and absolutely adored it. However we now use the Bee pretty much full time with the cocoon and Orla looks lovely and cosy in it, much more so than in the carrycot. For me it would depend on your lifestyle. Is the pushchair is being left set up and you are walking mostly then I'd go for it (would look for second hand) but if you are in and out of the car alot - like I am now for the school run - then it is just one more thing to faff with.

I wouldn't and didn't bother. He was cosy enough in the lay-flat pram. Our seat unit detached easily so on the few occasions he was sleeping when I got home, I could actually carry him inside, although it wasn't officially supposed to be used that way.
Think Little Madam used hers as a travel cot - am I right LM, you used it when away? So that might be a reason to get it, for us it wouldn't have been worth it as he had a Moses basket for the rare occasions we travelled, and he pretty quickly ended up just co-sleeping with us anyway.

Thanks all. It's just the new version out so haven't seen any second hand or I would buy used. Yeah CK it has car seat adapters think they are £18. Will def get them anyway. I'm still undecided!
OB do you mean the Nipper is in the 3 for 2?

The carrycot is £69.99 on Boots - at that price i could be tempted.

I can see the carry cot but not the actual pram on Boots. It's the V2 though and I'm after the V3 as I want purple.

Aw yes we used ours for all daytime and early evening sleeps in the lounge/wherever I was, we also used it for the first 6 months when we stayed at my mom's or in laws which was a lot at first as my H was away. Used it for walking from home when I knew she would sleep and shopping and eating out as they can only be in the car seat two hours, and you shouldn't use a snow suit in the car seat or thick layers so we found it absolutely brilliant for January baby. Would be equally useful for summer baby as the car seat can get very sweaty whereas carrycot is open. That said it was so expensive because it's one of the rare ones suitable for overnight sleeping (most aren't). As Jb says though it depends on your lifestyle and how bothered you'd be about them being in the car seat for long periods

Sorry, I was talking about the one for my pushchair, the Quinny. Sorry!

Haha ok OB. Strangely boots seem to have the carrycot but not the pushchair I'm after!
