After searching for buggies and looking at what we could afford this pushchair kept coming to the front of the pile, in the shop it looked sturdy and stylish and very comfy for a newborn through to toddler and the assistant seemed to put it up and take it down with ease.

So we went ahead and purchased the pistachio coloured one for £299 which seemed excellent value for money for the quality of pushchair you were getting and the multi functions it had.

Once we had brought our newborn son home we couldn't wait , after a few weeks to try it out. So we opted to take him to local shopping centre .

The first hurdle we hit was trying to attach the carrycot attachment to the pushchair ,this was fiddly and took alot of time and patience to get it fitted correctly . To fold the pushchair down after use the carry cot had to be taken back out again, Quite a lengthy process i thought and not much fun in a small carpark with not much space between cars or in cold rainy weather with a newborn.

A couple of hours walking round the shopping centre and our baby boy seemed cosy and content in the pushchair, the carrycot compartment is nicely padded with a mattress liner and comes with a footmuff which is great for keeping out the excess light and wind when baby is sleeping.

When i began using the pushchair for school runs however, the pushchair quickly began to become a burden and somewhat of a pain , putting the pushchair up and putting it down quickly outside a school was tricky and nearly impossible without help from a passer by as its soo heavy ,and you need more than one hand if your short and small build like me .I felt as thought i was wrestling with it every time and it was really hurting my arms and back . Sometimes on ocassion once erected it wasn't fully clicked in and would take brute force to click it into place for it to be safe to use . In a hurry this i felt could become a safety issue so much so that it concerned me and just had to buy a stroller for the school run instead of this .

over all a lovely looking puschair but not very practical for a busy mum on the go and other travel systems are alot easier to use .
