    Default How to get the baby up 2 flights of stairs from our car to our apartment?

    It takes me 10 seconds to put DD in the Ergo on my back, so I'd just get that. It's also handy if you have a few things to take from the car to the house as they're out of the way and not wobbling about.

    I'd leave the pram in the boot of the car (I do this, and don't live in an apartment).

    Then get a travel system pram with a car capsule that clips out.

    Personally I wouldn't do the baby carrier thing, as then you have to wake baby to take them in and out of the car. With the car capsule, you just click it out of its base (the base stays in the car), and carry them out with the handle. That then clicks into a pram base (handy if you're out shopping), or you can just put it on the ground to open doors and then carry baby easily in it.

    Most of them have a weight limit of 9kg, so depending on the size of your baby they can use it for some time. DD was in it for 9 months.

    cheapest is not always best tho . i will suggest that OP still does look into brands and buy a reputable one as cheap can sometimes be unsafe .

    brands like hug a bub , maya , just to name two are both repuatble

    I'd deffinately be leaving the pram in the car. Otherwise it can be done, i lived in an appartment when ds was a baby, i left ds in the pram and took it through gates, down and up flights of stairs... Deffinately a pain in the a$$ but doable .

    Default How to get the baby up 2 flights of stairs from our car to our apartment?

    When I was a single mum of the twins I had 3 flights to go up. I used to drag the double pram up the stairs backwards. I definitely suggest a carrier!

    Carrier. Once you get the hang of it it takes no time at all. Like a PP ten seconds to get DD in the ergo. And you'll have both hands free for shopping/getting doors open etc.

    Capsule or carrier. If worried about waking bub up too much then the capsule is the way to go. Carriers are very easy to use though, I used mine just to run in to 1 shop regularly.

    No need to bring the pram indoors each time is there? I leave mine in boot most days.

    As for walking up and down stairs with bub in arms - yes you can, but I'd be too worried that one slip and you both fall. Especially if also carrying your bag etc

    I agree with re carrier.

    I always leave the pram in the car, why is that not an option?

    I'm desperate to know why the pram can't be left in the boot
