    For me, the extra weight of the Techno is not worth the extra 4 months or so that a newborn would be able to use it. I find slings/carriers work great for babies, so I just put my 2nd straight into the Quest when she was old enough to not be fully reclined.

    Maclaren buggy is not designed for new born, it doesnt provide enough protection and no full recline seat. However, it is perfect for children over 1.5 year old, especially for a packed city like Hong Kong. Techno XT is good.

    Actually, the Maclaren Techno XT is made for newborns and I've used it for both my sons since birth. It's been amazing and still going strong after 5 years. ITs' great for traveling around airports too since it folds up nice and easily. Like NicoleJoy, we also have the Quest which is a bit lighter. We got it when my 2nd son was born as we needed 2 strollers and didn't want a double one.

    I believe that the Quest 2012 now fully reclines.

    Yes, it reclines to 170 degrees like the XT. If you buy from the Mclaren shop they carry the Japanese model which has a larger canopy hood (with a zipper like the XT) :)
