Bump for any additional advice from the arvo / evening crew 😊
I used the strider compact for my 3rd baby. I brought it so i could use it for Dd2 & DS both at once.
I used to put DD2 who was 22mths in the main seat and put the capsule in the bottom/2nd seat position for dS.
This was very handy for quick outings to grab the capsule out & click it in etc.
For longer outings i put the seat on for DS. It fully reclines and with all the padded inserts etc that come with the pram it was perfectly fine for a newborn - never brought or needed the bassinet.
I bought the capsule and pram for my brother last year for my nephew. And they loved it. Swore by the capsule and for the first month he wouldn't settle in anything but the capsule so for them it was a god send!
Based on that. I just went and put both pram and capsule on layby this week for us!!
Baby's r us have a 20% off sale on at the moment so you can get it at a good price (I got our local baby bunting to price match it for me 😉)
I have the Strider Plus 4 with a capsule and also now a toddler seat. My babies were big so I didn't get more than a few months out of my capsule each time but it was absolutely worth it to me. I had an ECS with my first and found it much easier to just pull the frame out of the car and pop the capsule on. When number two came it was even more worth it. I just kept the main seat in the car in case we were going away somewhere & I wanted to use that instead. I'm about to have number 3 and will be using the whole thing again. I never felt the need for the bassinet at all.
Thanks for everyone's advice, has been a huge help 😊
