ABSOLUTELY NOT SUITABLE FOR NEWBORN!!!
on 27 February 2012
I feel the need to let any other buyers know the experience i have had with this buggy. I bought it as at the time I had a 19 month old and a newborn. I put my baby in the back for the first time when she was 3 weeks old and noticed that she didnt look very well supported and although she wasnt a big baby she didnt have much room lengthwise. The next time i put her in to use the buggy (5 weeks old) I couldnt actually fit her in without her bottom overhanging the footwell gap between the seats and if i shifted her up then she had a bent neck as the back section simply was not long enough. I checked to see if the back section extended any more and it didnt. I clicked the back up to see if i could prop her in semi sitting position but the seat went too high and she was too young to be propped in that way anyhow. I was distraught as I couldnt use the buggy and decided I would have to just wait until she was old enough to sit up. I then thought, this is ridiculous, if you buy a buggy which states that is is from birth then it should be! I took the buggy into a specialist store to check i wasnt doing anything wrong and the staff where horrified when i showed them my daughter in it. In addition to what i already knew they where shocked to see that there is no support for baby's legs, just a gap where the foot rest falls into the basket below. Baby's legs just have to rest pointed up over hanging it and should you decide to recline the front seat this actually then crushes your baby's legs into her stomach. Needless to say mine went back, i got a full refund and now have opted for a side by side. Im sure this buggy is great if you are using it for 2 older children but if you are looking for a buggy to use for a newborn my advice to anyone is please, please dont buy this one!!!!
