However, it’s worth noting that manufactures Hauck haven’t sold Sport strollers since 2009, but you can still get your hands on new Sport buggies, as Hauck does make them (by the tanker) for supermarket brands like Lidl, Aldi and Asda.

Cuggl Hazel, £49.99 – suitable from birth

Cuggl claim their products are designed to work hard in real life, and this certainly seems to be true of the Hazel. With a larger frame so your baby has room to grow, an extendable hood for extra long naps – even during those light summer days, and the fact that it’s easy to fold, this pushchair ticks all the boxes.

You’re also likely to get more for your money. The reclining system means it can be used from birth. However, it’s best newborns lie-flat, so will probably be best used from around 3 months, and it’s ideal as a second stroller.

Red Kite Push Me Lite, £21 – suitable from 6 months

At the lower-end of the baby product market, Red Kite Push Me Lite costs a very modest £21.

Saying that, the price does not reflect the quality of the product which was given 3.5 stars out of 5 by our MFM reviewer for its compact fold, lightweight and manoeuvrability.

However it is a very basic pushchair; there’s no headrest, only one seating position (so no recline) and no accessories.
