    Default Compact prams?

    Hello everyone!
    So I'm pregnant and wondering what prams are really compact but still good.. Basically my car is tiny and boot space microscopic ( consider a tiny 2 door hatchback boot... Then half it) do I have any chance here!!!

    I have a steelcraft agile plus really compact and well priced I love it. The city mini is great too and even smaller and lighter and cheaper.

    I have a hipod ifold (same as the steelcraft agile) and it folds up really compact. We've even put it on the back seat of a ford focus next to the car seat before. You can also attach a capsule if you want to.

    Some others that may be good are the baby jogger city mini and bugaboo bee.

    I'd avoid strollers (Maclaren etc) as they're still quite long when folded.

    If you have a baby shop nearby, you can ask to check if a pram fits in your boot. If not, just read the measurements when folded (most websites will have them).

    I have the same pram and would recommend it. It folds down small and it's really easy to fold.

    I had a Strider Plus with DS which was big and heavy. I've just bought a Bugaboo Bee and I love it. It's so light and easy to fold up. One thing I had to have in a pram was that I want my baby to face me. Which you don't get with the Agile/Hipod.
