  • we are going on holiday to Portugal in 2 weeks time. This will be our first family holiday and I'm anxious to say the least (travelling on the plane is my main worry and Lucy' reaction) but that's no my question. I have a buggy/stroller which I use every day for getting around with Lucy. Its lightweight and easy to handle but it doesn't recline all the way back and I'm worried that she won't find it comfortable to sleep in it while we are out and about. Now we won't be out late at night but you know we will have an early dinner and drink and then head back to the resort so I want her to be comfortable. Now we have a bigger pram (3 wheeler) that we bought when she was born. Its bigger heavier but alot more comfortable and to be honest would be best to manoeurve on the beach and cobbled street. The airline doesn't charge us for the pram/buggy so I'm in two minds as to which is best to bring. The 3 wheeler is alot more awkward but the clincher is she sleeps in it at home during the day for her naps (she will only sleep in her cot at night) so I'm thinking the 3 wheeler which reclines all the way back is the best to bring. DH thinks it will be too much with cases etc but what does he know he's just a man

    writing this has just made up my mind actually...heavy comforable 3 wheeler = happier parents

  • sounds like a no-brainer to me.

    The 3 wheeler that she is used to and sleeps in.

    You'll find that the stroller works GREAT to carry gear as well.

    When I flew solo with my 2 kids, I would have 1 walk, one in the stroller, a backpack, the carseat draped around one handle of the stroller, and the other carseat propped up (with bungee) on the other piece of luggage I was rolling with my other hand.
    The stroller - no matter how large - is an asset when trying to carry kids and gear. As long as the airline doesn't charge for either, go with the larger.
    Then you can hedge a better bet of her sleeping and being comfortable.

  • I agree--go with the one in which she is most comfortable. Comfortable baby = more fun for parents!
