    Default Prams for non-drivers and high chairs

    So I don't drive, but will obviously need to book a taxi from time to time for appointments. I plan to return to work after paid parental expires so need a pram that can get me daily to childcare 20 minutes walk away, that's weather proof, and also ok for public transport and occasional taxi sedans. I'm told some can even be used as high chairs to let baby explore their own food, and am looking to save where possible. Has anyone done either of these things?

    Hi ..if your doing a lot of walking I would recommend GT Mini Baby Jogger...it folds easily and tyres are puncture less. ..very good quality and light.

    Re high chairs...i got an expensive one that folded onto a chair...sold it but...it just bought a big target 40 dollar one it's easy to clean and lots of tray room so baby can eat with lots of room.

    Just buy the basics as you don't need much and they are hard to sell and take up room. I sold half of what I had and now s3cond baby just buying basic necessary items.

    Hope this helps.

    yep baby jogger for sure. with high chair I bought a fancy padded one first and it was a major pain to clean. so make sure u just buy one with no or very little padding so u can just take it outside and spray it down to clean easily.

    We loved our baby jogger city mini GT. easy to fold and manoeuvre.
    I also agree with a cheap basic high chair. We got a cheapie from big w and have hosed it down a few times

    I agree with the pram recommendations above. Did you want to use the pram as a high chair? I would suggest not to do that.

    It is messy and you are better off getting a proper high chair.

    Thanks everyone for your comments so far. Do baby joggers have capsules if I wanted to fit it into a taxi or friend's car? I didn't realise you could get high chairs that cheaply.

    You can get capsules that fit in the city mini GT but if you want to put it in a friend's car or taxi you'll need to carry the base around too and install in the car each time you use it. Babies + taxi = nightmare Sorry if you know this already and i'm coming across condescending!!

    Also if you're looking to save some $$ join a local Facebook buy swap sell page - you can get a second hand baby jogger city mini GT for significantly less than a new one.

    I've never driven so far and own nearly every pram

    I've fitted a emmaljunga, bugaboo donkey, city mini gt double on bus but I would definitely get a smaller pram for trips out like a yoyo and then a gt for a normal pram that's my opinion
