  • Miley's an early adopter...

    Sam Bailey has shown she's leading the way with her choice of car seat. The X Factor winner has chosen the ground-breaking Doona to transport baby Miley around. 

    We spotted a very early version of the Doona at this year's Harrogate Nursery Fair in March. What makes the Doona special is that it's actually a car seat that turns into a buggy - removing the need for a bulky travel system when doing short journeys. 

    The Doona has fully integrated wheels and a handle that folds out, converting it from a fully-safe group 0+ car seat into a compact stroller. The Doona is only suitable for shortish journeys - babies shouldn't be in upright car seats for more than 2 hours - but it's probably perfect as a light runaround for Miley when Sam is nipping around from place to place. 

    "Miley is travelling in style to itv studios @DoonaUK this is the most practical car seat EVER!!" Sam tweeted.

    As well as a car seat with wheels, the X Factor winner has also chosen an unusual pram, which you can see on the next slide... 

  • Miley's battery-powered 4Moms Origami pushchair

    Sam has the another piece of parenting wizzardry for her pushchair. The 4Moms Origami is an amazing buggy that folds all by itself (yes really) and can even charge your mobile phone thanks to generators in the rear wheels that charge while you walk.

    It has lights to make it more visible and an LCD dashboard with a thermometer and speedometer. Our MFM reviewer thought it was hi-tech heaven - but it comes with a hefty price tag (over £900 for the pushchair and another £150 for the carrycot).

    From Sam's tweet, it looks like her Origami may have arrived as a gift, without the price tag...

    "Thank you @babygosling in syston for Miley's amazing @4moms travel system x she loves it xx," Sam tweeted. 

    It certainly looks like Miley's enjoying the comfort. 

    Sam has also been sharing some other snapshots of 2-month-old baby Miley and the rest of her family...
