Baby Carriers & Strollers
 
Hihi

I was wondering if anyone can share what are the type of strollers and baby carriers that you are currently using and if its recommended?

For baby carriers, I have shortlisted Ergobaby or Stokke but I am unsure which is the more suitable one.

For baby strollers, I have shortlisted Bugaboo Bee and Cybexmios

any thoughts on this?

Ergobaby carrier not bad but depend on baby also..My eldest absolute hate it while my youngest hv no issue..I saw some carrier that the baby can sit on it like pounch

buy the cheapest and lightest one you can find. Use it to get a feel of what is import to you and what not. From there than you can buy a better one.

For me light is important even if you drive. because you need to open /close and keep.

The height and distant of the handle also important. You need to be standing straight and walking without kicking the back of the stroller.

i've just bought babyzen yoyo+ stroller; overall very good impression of it. best of all, you can buy car seat adaptor to fit my maxicosi.

Have car: Bugaboo Bee5/3
No car, takes public transport: Babyzen Yoyo+

I've owned both, but have sold off my Bee3. I realized portability and compactness when folded is a bigger priority for me. We don't have a car, but my in laws have a car seat for my son.

Agree. Same situation. We don't have a car so I sold off our bee 3 to get the yoyo+. Very impressive portability. especially when taking bus, whoa so small and convenient to fold.

agree on this. Wanted to get the bee too then there was the fox. very much sturdier and stable. But also means troublesome to bring around :s13:

Maxi Cosi
 
Any stroller compatible with Maxi Cosi Cabriofix beside Quinny, Joie or Maxi Cosi stroller? Prefer lightweight /cabin size.

uni_user 05-04-2018 10:36 AM

carrier just get Tula... it comes with sleep dust...

stroller - many ppl use pockit....easy to fold/unfold and compact size

paenig 05-04-2018 03:22 PM

It would be best if you mention how old is your baby, as different baby carriers cater to different age group. Ergobaby if it's newborn, you need to use an infant insert, until. The baby is big enough and neck is strong enough. But as baby starts to gain weight, ergo does not give enough support, will need to change carrier again. Personally, I like tula, started using when baby is 10 months old.

Stroller, for babies above 6 months baby yoya, pockit.

My aunt is using baby bjorn carrier though. It seems okay

What about no car but likes to take grab/taxi?
My 1st one coming in a few months.
I'm thinking of maxi cosi infant seat plus maybe quinny zapp extra 2, but the yoyo+ folded liao really amazing (but expensive).

MakiMaki 25-02-2019 03:58 PM

Totally will recommend the Yoyo+.We've been using this carrier since our boy was born 2.5 years ago and haven been using till today. Doesn't matter if you drive or take public transport. This carrier has been to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea and Japan with us and we're thankful we bought it as it's light, portable, cabin sized and easy to push around. As mentioned earlier, can also affix Maxi Cosi infant carrier with adapters. If you plan to have only 1 carrier, I will highly recommend this.

Hi, you will need to get the adapter separately. It doesn't come with it unfortunately. Hope this clarifies..

Hi, I think it is..but will be best to confirm with the store. Some may also allow you to bring along to try first prior to purchase.

djr81 04-03-2019 08:37 AM

I recommend baby zen yoyo..

Very good, very tahan, easy to remove the padding and etc.

Bring to a few countries and have no problem with it Especially european countries, most airline will ask what stroller, and i reply cabin size stroller they will reply is it yoyo.

From age 0 to now going to 4 years old soon. Still good.. drop from height 1.5m above a few times still ok.

:s22:

I recommend graco mode select. heavy but 3 in 1 and built like a tank

Agree with this, don't buy those fanciful and expensive type. Bought a $899 Quinny, in the end still $120 yoya taobao No.1 preferred choice.

Can use for infants or not? They seem to have a stiff back insert that's included?

deodorant 06-06-2019 02:53 PM

Bugaboo launched a new travel stroller -- Ant. Retailing 799 at Motherswork, still very new so I guess no grey importers (yet).



Went to check it out yesterday, it's definitely more sturdy and chio than yoyo+, slightly larger and heavier (but can drag behind you when folded). Other advantages are both back and front facing seat setup, and the seat can recline fully flat so you don't need to buy separate bassinet pack.

I think I might buy this one instead of yoyo+ for upcoming little one, just need to confirm / see what the availability / pricing is like for the car seat adaptors ...

I'm using the Capella Freemove in particular. If you're looking at that particular model I strongly suggest you to find other models or in fact look at other brands entirely.

Few reasons why I don't like it: 1) Flimsy built - everything from the handle to the wheels. When you push the stroller and there's too much weight (baby + diaper bag in the below compartment) the handle doesn't stay in place. The handles can be adjusted to varying angles but the mechanism is a cheap one and it's so annoying to me because it wobbles in place. 2) Forward & Rear facing - wife and I bought this stroller in favour of this particular feature so we can see our precious baby while pushing her around. And we like that we don't have to remove the entire seat or swivel it around like some strollers. In this case just lift some mechanism on the sides of the handle and it's good to go. However, when it's rear facing the 4 wheels doesn't move together. This Freemove has a very weird way of pushing once its changed to rear facing. We realised we stop using the rear facing entirely and stick to forward facing eventually. 3) Small under-seat compartment. 4) Wheels are small - going over humps or small gaps like drain covers or even lift gaps can be quite intimidating with a baby inside. 5) Cannot hang anything remotely heavy on handlebar which will cos it to topple. 6) Click mechanism to adjust the angle of baby's lying or sitting position. Another feature we thought we would appreciate but no. We found it such a letdown. Again, mechanism is cheap and flimsy. It has only 3 angles to offer. Other brands are better off with the traditional way.

My advice, don't buy Capella stroller or in particular the Freemove model. We purchase directly from the distributor and got several freebies and slightly cheaper price. But after few months we were already looking for new stroller.

The Fox is marketed as an all-terrain type.. too overkill for a well-developed urban country like Singapore and it's damn heavy. Even at it's lightest configuration, it's more heavy than their popular Bee series.

IMO the Bugaboo Ant looks more promising as an alternative to Babyzen Yoyo. The folding part is a bit "mafan" though, I counted about 5 steps and not sure if you can unfold with one hand only, which the Yoyo can do and in only 1-2 steps (need some practice, but it's doable!).
