A is now 17 weeks and rolling like Tasmanian devil, she is now rolling in the pram and today pulled herself up to sitting holding on to the pram apron! She has when holding on to my hand pulled herself to her knees, so now I think she is unsafe in the pram but far too small for the stroller. She hates the car seat and we go out for long periods so not really a suitable option.
any suggestions or am I just going to have to buy a lie flat stroller so there is a harness until she is big enough for the stroller part of the uppababy?

Does it not have a pram seat as well or just the carry cot?

It has a stroller but it is for 6 month plus and she is really skinny and it is not a true lie flat

I'd probably be tempted to use it but I'm not familiar with the pram.

I would use the stroller seat if she is strong when supported. Isaac hated the carrycot and was in the pushchair at about 4months, I lay it as flat as I could but he just wanted to be nosey. I padded it out with a blanket to help support him.

Yes I'd just use the stroller on a low incline. Lots of babies out grow carry cots before 6 months x

Can you fit reins in the carry cot? Mine had hooks at the sides to attach standard reins.

I'm not familiar with the Uppa Baby but looking at pictures the carrycot looks similar to the concord proton we had with Zoe. She would often be sat up in it as it has a back rest that raises up. If it is that she wants to see out why not put a foam wedge under the mattress, I know several people who have done that with bugaboos.

I've seen my friend with her baby in it, younger than your A, but also very strong - can she sit unaided? If so, i'd be tempted to use it.
My other suggestion would be, take the apron off, use blankets / coats / other layers that way she's nothing to pull herself up with.

She is very strong in that she rolls well - linking them together to move accross the floor, can get her bum up to crawl with her legs arms not up to the job. She sits well in snug seat like a bumbo and sits up and forward in her swing and maintains balance.
She has a wedge for her reflux, but it is more a case of I don't want to be in here I want to be with mummy!
I have looked for hooks but can't find any to attach reins to - had my mum going on about how much better silver crosses in her day were again!
Got the stroller bit out but the shoulder straps don't go as tight as I would like - started crying cos she hates being restrained she knows her mind I am not looking forward to the tantrums in the future! Think I am going to go with the stroller bit and just try and sling her as much as possible.
