    Oh I should have added, my ds3 will be 7-8 weeks old when we go to the snow, so some of the strollers won't be suitable because he will be lying down flat.

    Also we don't want To use a bassinet attachment as we are taking it overseas so we need something compact & lightweight.

    Damn this is hard!

    I'm tossing up between mountain buggy terrain or baby jogger summit..

    The bugaboo is too bulky, we used to have a cameleon which was great but it's a PITA to fold up, and it isn't in one piece. I know the buffalo can fold in one, but I would need a bassinet attachment for a newborn.

    GAH! I hate making these decisions

    I also don't want to spend more than $800 max, and that's already a lot for a last-baby pram. We won't be using it again after this baby

    I've considered this, but our time is limited and I don't want to waste it having to look for a pram. I've thought about buying online and picking it up as soon as we arrive, but that means not having a pram in the airport. Could use my ergo though... Hmmm things to think about.

    How long are you over there for? We're in the same boat and personally skipping the pram and just taking a carrier, rather than it getting trashed by the airlines.

    We'll be in Italy for 2-3 weeks. Not sure exactly how long because there will be a side trip to another country without snow. We go to Italy every year and stay in a resort in the region, but never with such a small Bub before. The youngest Bub we had with us was DS1 at age 3 months and he was barely sitting up by then. I don't know what I would have done without a pram, I definitely needed a break for my arms because he was with me almost all the time and I couldn't snowboard.

    Do resorts have prams? I would take a pram with a bassinette like a emmaljunga as they are safe enough to sleep in there basinette is SIDS approved. Buy a $150 one on gumtree let it get trashed and don't worry about it! U can load it up shopping too or I would def get a buff

    I'd justify it by buying something with good re-sale value (but I love prams!)
