We've put aside a trenton deluxe at mothercare too! ours is the green one though. We have just started to think about changing it though as we've had more time to look at others and it seems a little bulky. Also Im not sure how much use the carrycot part will get as we'll most likely just attach the car seat to begin with. Ive seen a Graco one in Toys r us which you get the car base too for a cheaper price.

I had a mamas and Papas and I loved it.

It had the pram/carry cot. the buggy seat which could face either way, car seat which fitted on the the chassis if I wasn't going to have Joseph in it for long. They recommend that babies spend NO LONGER than 90mins in a car seat at a time.

I loved it and only had that a stroller for when he was bigger and didnt want to take the big buggy. I was upset when I had to put it away just after he was 2 because he was so big and wanted to walk everywhere.

I totally did my head in before DS was born over which pram/buggy to buy - they are all so expensive and it's so hard to know which features will be the ones which turn out to be good for you.

In the end I got a Bebecar Vector and it's been fantastic so far. I didn't bother getting the carrycot top because the pushchair pretty much converts into a pram when you put the back fully down. DS sleeps really well in it and it's nice to push. Plus the car seat fits on the wheels too which has turned out to be pretty useful - I usually do this if I'm going on the bus for example cos it makes it smaller.

The other really good thing is the whole thing can face either way - it was the only one I saw which would do this as well as let the baby lie completely flat after the tiny baby stage.

The only disadvantage really is it's quite big and bulky and there's no way I could take it on the Tube on my own because of all the steps - it's fine on buses though.

When I can afford it I think I'll get a Maclaren buggy to use on occasions like Tube journeys but I'll carry on with the Bebecar for journeys on foot and to places where I really need DS to be able to sleep in it

I have the Uppababy inline double stroller, which with a removable part that brings me lots of convenience for supplies if we need to go out.
