    Default Recommend me a stroller

    I'm tired of lugging around a huge pram for short trips and am thinking of buying a stroller. Also so I can put it in dh car.
    Dd is almost 9 months and 8 kgs so would this be an on time to buy one and how long will I get out of it??
    I'm looking at a McLaren triumph I think its called.
    Going to Thailand next April so hope for something compact but not flimsy.
    Also do any strollers recline back if she wants a sleep?

    I use a steelcraft holiday and love it. It's often on special at big w. it reclines, cheap as well. Easy to put up and down and lightweight and compact . I use it for trips away.

    I've got a valco evo 2 and its great for a quick trip to the shops. We took it to Fiji with us this year and had no problems. Its was one of the few strollers I could find which reclined all the way. It also has a carry handle on the side when its folded.

    I'm a maclaren fan! Can push it one fingered whilst talking on the phone holding an umbrella (obviously that's not safe but you know what I mean)
    Had our Quest for over 3 years now and been on multiple flights and still looks great.
    Currently using it for my 9mo 11kg DS. Doesn't recline all the way but enough for him to sleep 1.5hrs in it most days.
    Only downside I found on some strollers was the sunshade not being big enough. Easily fixed as I bought an outlook universal sunshade that covers down to their feet AND
    Once reclined its hard to get into the storage bit at the bottom. Attachment 44366

    I agree sunshades with strollers are usually not big enough. I bought a universal one too - an outlook sunshade from big w as well. Should of thought of that.
