- safe and secure car seat with Isofix base;
- a pram that is compatible with the car seat so that if the baby is asleep in the car seat we can attach the car seat to the pram without waking him/her;
- we want a pram/stroller that can be used from birth preferably without the use of a separate carrycot;
- easy to fold;
- wide enough so that baby is comfy as he grows.
Now tell me if I am asking too much? As I typed this I got distracted and conducted another search and I think I might have found THE one. It's not a fashionable-celebrity kind of pushchair, it more of an unknown safe brand. The name is Britax and it's a German brand and it's safety records is one of the best in the world for car seats. Our Peanut is going to be safe! They make stylish and practical pushchairs and amongst them it's the one I like the most. It's called B-Smart and it ticked all the boxes above. We can use it from birth as it reclines flat, it's light but stable, I can add the car seat to it, it's easy to fold, it has plenty of space for Peanut's things, the seat can either face us or to the outside, the tyres are anti puncture and on and on! We are also going to buy the car seat with its Isofix base from the same brand because as I have said they have one of the safest records when it comes to baby safety. The colour selection is not as large as other makes but that's not the main selling point for me. They have a lime green and a red which are cool.. or a classic black or denim. We shall see.
Now after all of this search you would think that all I am left to do is go to a store and try it. Well I wish I could do that but it seems that Britax is not easily available in the UAE. So I am back to searching mode trying to locate stores that sell it. Wish me and poor D luck!
