Chicco London Best Baby Pushchair

| June 15, 2012

Chicco London Pushchair

The Chicco London Pushchair has flown across the world with us from London to Auckland in New Zealand. It is truly brilliant! You won’t go wrong with this pushchair if you want a lightweight yet sturdy pushchair for travelling and everyday use.

One thing we needed for our first overseas holiday with baby was a travel friendly pushchair. This was going to be our first flight with our baby to Brittany in France.

My husband and I searched shops and online retailers for the best baby pushchair, wanting a pushchair that was lightweight, had all the essentials and a compact umbrella fold for travelling on aeroplanes.

After plenty of research we decided on the Chicco London Pushchair.

Even the budget airline we flew with allowed us to fold the pushchair with the footmuff still attached, saving us additional space in our already bulging suitcase!

The Chicco London Pushchair comes complete with a beautifully soft, fleece lined footmuff which zips easily to the seat cover and a fully protective raincover. The seat has four positions that you can change easily using one hand and fully reclines so your baby or toddler can lie almost flat for sleeping.

Travelling with the Chicco London Pushchair in France

There’s a shopping basket under the pushchair seat which holds a generous amount of items. Our Babymel Changing Bag fitted comfortably under the seat with nappies, changing mat, bottles and food.

The Chicco London Pushchair went on the beach, gravel tracks in the countryside and throughout towns. It was great in all locations.

The Chicco London Pushchair is a fantastic pushchair and we have been surprised at how versatile, robust and easy it is to use. The Chicco London Pushchair is suitable from birth to 3 years and weighs just 7.2 kgs.

The ingenious SnoozeShadeis the perfect everyday companion for your baby, protecting them from the dangerous rays of the sun. The SnoozeShade helps to promote blissful sleep by acting as a blackout blind over the pram.

I love the SnoozeShadeas it keeps the wind from my baby when she sleeps in her pram during autumn and winter, without having to use the plastic raincover.

There is a zip you can use to peep in and see your baby sleeping soundly.

Features of the SnoozeShade:

  • Uses Velcro straps to fit most 3 and 4 wheel prams, pushchairs, buggies and rear-facing car seats with hoods
  • Works with flat-lying pram or upright pushchair modes
  • Folds into a small bag that can be popped in a handbag, in a pushchair’s basket or hung off pram handles
  • Blackout blind protects baby from the sun with UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) 50+
  • Suitable for prams, pushchairs, buggies and rear-facing car seats with hoods
  • Velcro straps and elasticated sides
  • Works in lie-flat or upright modes
  • Folds away for easy storage, great for travel

The SnoozeShadeis a must-have that you will use daily, even in the autumn and winter months.

The Best Group 1 Car Seat 2012

| April 5, 2012

At around 12 months our baby was starting to outgrow her Group 0+ car seat.

We loved the Britax Baby-Safe Plus SHR II car seat so much and know Britax is a reliable and safe brand so we decided to upgrade to the Group 1 Britax Safefix Plus ISOFIX Group 1 Car Seat.

This car seat has won several awards and since using it with my baby, I firmly believe it is the Best Group 1 Car Seat 2012. The Britax Safefix Plus ISOFIX Group 1 Car Seatwon the Mother & Baby Gold Award for Best Group 1 Car Seat 2011.

The Britax Safefix Plus ISOFIX Group 1 Car Seatis suitable from 9 months to 4 years (9kg to 18kg). It comes with an ISOFIX base and can be used with the ISOFIX base or with a seat belt.
