Hi i don't really know about the Loola but i have the pilko switch. Not used it yet as still pregnant but am really pleased with it, love it that you can have push chair facing both ways, can Loola do that too? It is really easy to change around and the pramette is not a bad size and cosy. With the car seat it goes straight on the frame without the need for the pushchair/pram part. I can imagine this would be useful if your not out for long as you don't have to take everything with you. Only thing is the price, we were lucky we got a one that had been used only once of ebay and we paid ??270 for pram, car seat and all the extras! So def look out for deals on ebay! Good luck snd happy shopping!

Hi, I've just bought the bebe confort loola 2008 after been recommended it by a friend and have got to say I absolutely love it and so does my son. He's a big boy for 12 weeks old and I can see there is loads of room for him to grow into it. I love him been able to face me and to switch it from forward to rear facing is so easy. I test drove the pushchair in the shop wthout asking for any assistance and workd the whole thing out, it was very easy. I bought mine from Mothercare but www.twoleftfeet.co.uk often do very good prices on all baby things, just check on the delivery times 1st before ordering. The shopping basket is easy to get to also when he is in the lying position and i've managed to put a baby baby, the kids coats and all sorts under there at the same time. Hope this helps. Leila x

My sister has the Loola and hates it to the point that she carries the baby around rather than use it to go to the shops.
Apparently its heavy & doesn't fold down small enough.

That's a shame, guess we all have different opinions. I use it all the time for town and find it folds up not dissimilar to a Maclaren I used to have. It is a bit heavy though, but only for lifting.

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!
