We ended up with baby jogger city elite with a maxi cosi capsule and adaptors to fit it onto the pram frame.
Just a matter of washing all the clothes and wraps and cloth nappies and getting them ready for missy, and then doing stuff like stocking up on frozen meals for after her arrival!
Prams - we have a bugaboo frog (old version of the chameleon) and a baby jogger city mini. The city mini is my favourite but Bub cant face the parent in it, so that's why I've got the bug, for the early days. The city mini is fabulous though, easy to fold and carry, washes like new and steers amazingly. So once Bub is 1 or so she'll switch prams.
We have the bugaboo bee 3. No complaints here. Folds in one piece if you're using the chair fitting. We used the bassinet and still occasionally do but DD is loving the chair so she can see the world.

We are icandy peach v16 all the way!! Love the pram so much!! It's lightweight and extremely easy to manoeuvre. It also has a 25kg capacity chair and converts to a double without becoming massive. We love it and have it on lay by already haha. They were smart and included elevators now which brings bub nice and high (closer to you or a table depending on which way they are facing) which is a bonus. Can't wait to have the bub to go in it lol
City Mini GT over here! We have used the bassinet attachment until just recently. Now bub is 4 months old and likes to look out at the world, so she's just in the regular seat. For us, we wanted a light weight pram capable of handling a bit of off road that was easy to fold.
Is it generally best to buy from a big store rather than online?
So with your bundle - obviously you use the capsule for the car, but how long roughly til you would need to buy a car seat? Am I right in thinking that you can buy car seats suitable from birth these days? I was looking at a mountain buggy bundle type thing, but then wonder if it's indeed worth bundling if you have to buy a car seat down the track!
We really just need something easily enough controlled with one hand so the dogs can be wrangled with the other. Not sure if a 3 wheeler or 4 is going to be better for that!
