I bought the Valco Rebel Q as it has four wheels, is suitable for a newborn as the seat lays back, you can turn the seat around so bub can face you when they're young and then look outwards when older, and one back brake. It also came with the added bonus of having an extendable handle which has become important because both my husband and I are above average height.
Our baby is now almost three months and this is a great pram for us:
The only negatives are:
I love love love this pram.
it is suitable from birth as it lays flat, right through to toddler. the seat can be forward or rear facing by just turnung it around. also compatable with select capsules.
adjustable handle which is handy as my husband is quite tall.
the extra large canopy is fantastic in summer - most other prams do not have this.
it has a very small turning circle which helps when shopping.
they also have a toddler seat attachment for when bubs number 2 comes along.
Initially the steering was not great but it seems this has 'worn in' somewhat. the front wheels had a tendency to have a mind of it's own and I was battling the pram to get it to go where I wanted, especially on slippery supermarket floors or bumpy paths. This seems to have settled down after a month of use and it is going well now & doesn't seem to be a problem at the moment. Probably a fraction
I got this pram online for about $500, the $800-odd retail price is totally overpriced and I would never pay this for it.
