The Cosatto Swift Lite Supa provides good value for money with a versatile and lightweight design that has many useful features and is suitable from birth.
The Cosatto Swift Lite Supa is a lightweight forward-facing pushchair weighing only 6.76kg. Suitable from birth, it offers three recline positions, including a flat position for a newborn.
The ‘Supa’ model is the same pushchair as the regular Swift Lite, but also includes a matching snugly cosytoes (washable at 40 degrees c), which is vital for your newborn as well as being very useful for toddlers too. The Cosatto Swift Lite Supa comes in six colourways, and all are very funky looking designs – though quite bright!
There’s a break on each wheel – and they are easy to press and feel very secure with a reassuring click. It also comes with a built-in carry handle, a removable hood and raincover as well as a 4-year guarantee as long as you register it within a set period of time. So Cosatto are clearly very confident about how robust it is, which is reassuring.
What we love
It’s great that this pushchair can be used for a newborn as well as the older toddler – there’s no need to start off with a bulkier pram for your precious tiny baby only to find yourself forking out for a lightweight stroller at 6 months!
It’s easy to recline using the levers on the side, but it does take two hands to then wriggle the seat down. It also has two positions for the calf support, which is an added bonus especially as the pushchair can be used for so many different age groups.
I love the viewing window in the hood, which means you can see your little one when they are reclined. At £134.99, including the price of the cosy-toes, this seems reasonable value for a product that’s so versatile.
For a lightweight pushchair, Cosatto have provided a good sized basket and I’m able to store a lot of stuff underneath. The basket is removable and washable. I’ve also been able to hang a reasonable amount of shopping from the handles without it tipping over!
There is suspension in the front wheels – another nice detail not found in many lightweight pushchairs – which makes it comfortable for you to push and for your little passenger.
What to watch out for
There isn’t a great deal of padding to the seat of this pushchair, so in full recline it doesn’t seem quite as comfy or robust for your newborn as some other more substantial prams that have a bassinette feel. However, the cosytoes definitely helps.
Something to watch for – I do occasionally catch myself or my shopping on the closing handle that sticks out of the middle of the back of the pushchair. If you’re choosing this as your main buggy, you’ll have to accept that your baby will always be forward-facing and it’s not travel system compatible with specific car seats etc.
The basket is quite hard to access when you have the seat fully reclined, so you have to move a tiny baby up then down again if you have a lot of shopping.
The pushchair is collapsed from the lower back by squeezing a lever and lifting up a handle, whilst pushing down on another catch. You then push on the pushchair handles to fold it up completely. Although the marketing claims it’s a one handed-fold, I really needed both hands to push down the handles into the umbrella fold, but don’t all pushchairs if we’re honest? But, it’s then very simple to unfold again.
Who is the Cosatto Swift Lite Supa best for?
Mums who want just the one space-savvy and weight-conscious pram to go from birth to toddlerhood.
Overall this is a good value purchase that will last a long time, is comfortable to manoeuvre and will suits those with space constraints. It’s not the most hip model on the market and your baby will always need to be forward-facing. However, you’ll probably end up using it for longer than other mums with expensive travel systems who inevitably have to resort to a pushchair when their little one hits toddlerhood.
