Depends how much money you want to spend.

We bought this for DS:

http://www.pramcentreonline.co.uk/shop/product.php?product_id=7890

Its very light so good for public transport and holidays. Not the best for pushing but it came with a footmuff, raincover and changing bag for £50 so good value. I needed it for SIL & MIL who watch kids when Im at work and for in the car for shopping trips so it does the job.

If I had more money I would have got a Maclaren Quest as I had one for DD but I think they are about £120 now and wanted a footmuff too so probably another £30 for that. Im still using my pram, but when I stop using that I think I'll get another Quest.

Hi piepig

We have the Maclaren Quest, prior to that we have had several
we had a cosatto which is ok for little but found it hard to manouvere once ds was heavier, we had a maclaren triumph which ds loved when awake but wasnt good for sleeping as he liked his legs up and had no footrest

that said its lightweight he had a buzz at the time and i think he liked the comfort factor, but he absouletly loves the quest, even now at 2.5 yrs he sleeps in it sometimes 2-3 hrs if we are out and about!

lots of online stores have saleson so am sure you may pick one up as a bargain

otherwise how about trying netmums ???
or ebay

I was just about to suggest the Obaby as a cheaper alternative to the maclaren quest, as SFT says it is very, very similar. The only difference I found from comparing them both in store is the quest is a bit lighter.

The Zen which is made by babies r us is a really nice stroller too, a ff lent me one when DS was small as my travel system had to be sent off for repair and he was very comfortable in it, its uitable from birth. :)

Its on offer at the moment too for £89.99 and includes parasol, rain cover and cosy toes. Here's a link
