Love my Bebe Care Rverse XT stroller.
The biggest thing I was looking for when choosing a pram was to find one that could have a basinet attached for when bubs is a newborn. Instead of having to buy a basinet attachment for this pram, the seat actually converts from basinet to a stroller seat with ease. This was particularly great when going out for dinner, as the seat could be flat when bubs was sleeping, and when he wanted to sit up and look around we could pop the seat up. The seat also reverses so that you can have the little one facing towards you, which I thought was important.
I have also found this pram to be lightweight and easy to navigate, with a adjustable handle so that the height can be changed. There is a large storage compartment at the base which can easily fit a nappy bag and some grocery bags.
A bonus is that it even comes with a sun shade which has been well used, and a rain cover.
The only downsides are that the base can be slightly heavy to pick up when putting in the car, and that it does take up a fair bit of room in the boot. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this pram/stroller!
I wish I had found this pram sooner. It has all the features that are important to me without needing to buy any separate attachments.
It can face outwards or inwards, and converts to lay flat like a bassinette. It includes a rain cover and sun cover and has a large canopy hood.
It's incredibly easy to steer which was my #1 priority, I like to be able to steer one handed around shops in case I need to hold a hand of another child, this pram fits the bill for that, but it also does well on footpaths and grassy/rocky terrain.
The only real downside for me was the weight, it's a little heavier than I would of liked, but I didn't mind compromising for the other features. It's also a little bulky once folded but I can still managed to fit it in the boot of my Tarago and pop the groceries around it too.
