Buggy road testing!
Both my wife and I found it really frustrating that you couldn’t road test buggies prior to a purchase. I was lucky in that my two brothers became parents before me so could get advice from them about their choice of pram or stroller. Eventually we bought a 7.5 Kg Oyster stroller made by baby style. It is very light, compacts very easily for boot storage and grows with your child. It can go flat for when he is asleep has an extensive sun cover to prevent sunburn and has a very durable shopping basket. For the first 6 months we have our son facing us when pushing, then when he became interested in his surroundings we changed him to facing the way of travel. John Priscott
