    Default Small pram for small mommy

    I'm very short and physically weak. Looking for a pram that's suitable for a short person, light weight, easy to fold, with reversible handle and good steering, under $500 if possible. I bought the Steelcraft Acclaimed and hate it. I thought the Combi Urban Walker fits my needs perfectly but when I tried it in store, steering was horrible when bub faced me. Any suggestion please!

    I'm 150 cm I used the 4 wheeler jeep pram. It was only 200 it was really easy to steer
    It's not reversible but you can lift the flap at the back and see them/ talk to them I found the reversible ones harder to steer

    Not under $500 but the Bugaboo Bee would suit your needs if you could afford the extra $200. It's light, fabulous to steer, easy to fold and put up and can be faced towards you or out.

    If you bought second hand you would get a peg perego UNO that fits all your needs, otherwise a maclaren stroller would be perfect, except it doesn't have a reversible handle! Goodluck.

    I'm shorter than you

    Thanks for all your replies, I'll check them out. At 4 months I think the reversible handle is more for me than for bub, I always feel worry (for no reason) and want to make sure he's ok, he probably gets sick of seeing me all the time

    I'm short and weak too.

    We got the Roger Armstrong Elfin.
    It is excellent. 3 wheeler, easy to steer, easy to fold, not heavy to lift and plenty of storage space underneath.

    I paid about $150 - $170.

    I'd get a second hand bugaboo bee. The stroller types are light to pick up but get extremely difficult to push off the smooth surface of your local mall or with a heavy toddler.

    I bought Maclaren when i was pregnant.. I used it a few times with newborn and it so anoying, Baby screems, i cant reach basket, will be better for me in about 1.5 years i think. I went and got a Bugaboo cameleon. I have heard some bad things about the Bee + if you look on youtube there are so many videos or bee going wrong.

    I know that the bee plus had a problem with the front wheels but that has been fixed now. What other problems have you seen? Everyone I know loves theirs!

    I'm 146 & I have maclarens. I love them, even the double only weight 10kg & single under 5. The weight is the reason I bought them.
