    Hi Trace, yes the XT fully reclines and is suitable from Birth. In England, I line it with a footmuff so that Emily is more comfortable when she's sleeping but I am not sure whether it's suitable for use in HK due to the hot humid weather.

    Hi Tracey,

    Bought it today -- been using it all day. We LOVE it!

    Also a note about the XT and reclining flat. We had bubs in a car seat as part of a travel system suitable from birth and carseats dont recline flat either. The XT doesnt recline fully, but it's much flatter than Kian had in his carseat. I can now recommend this buggy from experience. We nabbed the last one in Central's mothercare though :P

    If the XT reclines any further, the babys head will be lower than her feet when she's sleeping.

    Btw, just out of interest, how much are Mothercare charging for the XT in HK?

    I bought one in the UK recently at boots.com for my sister-in-law for 107.78GBP/ HK$1638 which takes into account boots points, quidco and promo code.

    We have the Combi Miracleturn TJ450 which we bought when bubs was about 6 weeks old. Chosen mainly because it's easy to handle and it's relatively lightweight. (Actually my husband would have preferred something a bit more solid, but I wanted a stroller that I could use on my own, if necessary.)

    Overall we're happy with the purchase as the stroller does everything it promises. (We live in the Midlevels so stairs are a particular concern. When folded, it's very easy to carry up the stairs, esp as it comes with a very handy shoulder strap.) Perhaps the one complaint is that with the the small wheelbase, we find it a bit hard/jerky whenever we need to lift up the stroller a little - e.g. lifting it over the edge when stepping off the escalator or onto the pavement etc.

    i know i asked on these strollers

    *Maxi Cosi with Quinny Zapp
    *Combi (get lots of recommendations)
    *Graco EDT
    *Capella

    but now am thinking about the Aprica which is being sold at Wing on.

    does anyone have any comments on the Aprica?
