I'm looking for a pram, something that will fit a carrier &/or a bassinet...



I have no idea what to look for, it feels like i'm doing this for the first time all over again...



& what kind of cloth nappies do you recommend?



I know its early on, but I've seen the price of some of these fuckers so I need to save.

I got the strider compact. I think you can get a carrier/ travel system attachment for it or bassinet but they r extra. I just got the standard pram I didn't see the point in paying extra for something if only use for a small amount of time. The photos on the britax website don't really do it justice. If you can, go in and have a look at it.



And you look exactly like a friend i have from highschool in your avi. And her name is liana. Except she is blonde. But I seriously thought you were her and had to check your profile.

Really? I had a mother choice that broke last time.



This time I have layby'd the pram, and SO will pick it up when I'm in hospital, that way the one year warranty will start once bub is here

I have the Strider Plus. I love it but the only problem is that it's big, bulky and heavy. It's like the 4wd of prams lol.
They sell a bassinet attachment and a travel system for it too.

I dont know what you have in regards to strollers in Oz but we use Peapods cloth nappies which are from there and find them good. There are two sizes of them but the first last until they are 9 months ish. Our son is 5 months and still on the first dome.

Yes, the back wheels make it quite wide. I've noticed I can't get on trams with it either because of the width.
