Hiya, it took us 7 months to decide on which travel system to buy. All along we were having a quinny buzz but after trying my 2 year old niece in it decided it was far too small and would not get our moneys worth, whereas we have now opted for the mamas and papas 6 in 1 forme with mpx chassis. It is fantastic and much bigger than many others but still light weight. Hope this helps and good luck.:\)

I needed a light pram as my garden is on a slope and i have lots of steps going down from my house, the back way is far too steep to push a pram down so ill have to lift it down the steps then go put my baby in lol. I went for the Mamas and papas pramette as i wanted one that was a lay flat pram that turns into a pushchair and was very light. We got the car seat to match both in polka. I did want a bugaboo cameleon but they didnt have the colours i wanted together
. First time with my boy i had a graco and i didnt like it, it was fiddly to use, we didnt have a car so folding it for a bus was a nightmare! and it was a bit a heavy. Go test them in the shops if you can first, we pushed about 5 round in mothercare lol, we were carrying them putting them up and down and everything and the staff didnt seem to mind, even when we left with no pram haha.

I've gone for the Graco Quattro Deluxe. From discussions on other forums it doesn't seem like a popular choice, everybody is going for Quinny or Mamas & Papas. I'm sticking with my Graco as I really like to features - one-handed folding mechanism, built-in thermometer, removable toy/activity tray, extra large mesh basket for shopping. In the end it doesn't matter which brand or how much it costs; its down to how well it suits your needs.

We just bought our Graco Vivi Twinckle system. It was the only one fit for me as i am very short and i needed the handle to be adjusted quite low. Also we don't have a car and the huge shopping basket will be very handy. I don't see myself folding it with hand though even hubby can't do it. But i live near the bus depot so it will be first bus stop when i use the bus lol

I've got the mamas and papas 6 in 1 in city scape, seemed a good idea - but apprently it gets covered in fluff from blankets.

Claire21, in what way are you new and improved?? I keep wondering xx
May 23, 2007 11:21AM
I've lost a bit of weight and I've had my fringe trimmed. xx
May 23, 2007 11:24AM
oh, i thought it was your language cos I haven't seen you be naughty for a while!! xx
May 23, 2007 11:25AM
No, its that as well, although I have been naughty just not said the f word - yet. And i've got a new fridge, that has made me a better person.

Actually if I'm brutally honest, when I couldn't get on here a few weekends ago and was panicking I'd been barred - Claire Weston suggested I chose a new user name to get back on - and thats what she said - New and Improved, and I think I like it better than Fanny face or whatever I got called before x

any one got the hauk 3 wheeler jeep travel system?? i need somthing that folds to nothing as i need to get it in the car with thd dog in there too! and i am a miserable bitch so don't want to pay a fortune lol
May 23, 2007 11:31AM
Snap I'm a miserable bitch too, but my parents bought me mine, as I didn't want to spend a fortune either. I'm worried it's going to be cramped in the boot of my car - it fits - just.
May 23, 2007 11:35AM
no parents left cos im an old bitch too and they are long dead lol so we are buying everything .thought i was going to get some of my friends old stuff cos her wee one is 2 but her neice is expecting at the same time so thats that out the window!!
May 23, 2007 12:16PM
We have been bought the Ultima 5in1 from M&P by my mum and dad in polka as it has everything on that we need. I can't wait to start using it now! Only 6 days to go!!
May 23, 2007 12:32PM
Ive got the graco quattro travel system and I bought the carrycot to go with it too. It seems easy to use cant wait to have a proper trip out with it though.
May 23, 2007 12:41PM
I really wanted a travel system too but all the ones in the shops i liked seemed very expensive at ??350+ and then you had to pay extra for the car seat. Im a miserable bitch too and didnt wanna pay that much so I ended up going bargain hunting online and got a safety first kansas travel system complete with car seat for a great ??160!
I love it, its black and light grey, really sturdy (looks like it will last) its a 3 wheeler with nice fat tyres that you pump up (great for off roading) and has loads of features such as an adjustable handle bar, parent tray, baby tray and 1 handed folding. It came with the car seat like i said and also with the rain cover and a pump for the tyres and a foot muff. It looks great and pushes great and i cant wait to use it. I would say the only down side to it is its slightly heavy so not ideal for public transport but that doesnt matter to me as i have a car.
May 23, 2007 12:46PM
what site did you get it from toni would like to have a look at it cos i need fat tyres for all the beach and wood walks i have to do with the dog fea
May 23, 2007 1:21PM
i got it from www.babys-mart.co.uk
Its free delivery too
It doesnt say anything about a foot muff but it does come with one which was a nice supprise when i opened the box.
May 23, 2007 1:26PM

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
