    How many strollers does one need??

    Hi all

    My wife and I are expecting in February 2014 and I have been doing some research on strollers/ car seats/ cots ie big items.

    Given the weight of some of the strollers, do you need more than one? I was thinking of a bugaboo chameleon as it has the cocoon/ lie flat cot and can be a seat for a child as they grow. But it's nearly 14kg which, when carrying a baby and it being modular, cannot be easy to pack. So, I assume you keep this in car for when husband can help. So, do you then need a lightweight stroller for mum when she is out by herself? What lie flat stroller is lightweight? I can't see any which will fold with carry cot or do people just use car seat/ baby carrier?

    Many thanks

    I have the quinny zapp which can take a car seat. Both the seat and the car seat can take a new born. But it's bulky and I can't carry it + baby, so now that baby is nearly at walking stage we just bought the insanely light weight and portable babyzen yoyo which I can carry one handed whilst holding baby in the other arm. Not as good for long walks but better for buses and a toddling toddler.

    We use both depending on where we' re going.

    The combis are lie flat and light weight incidentally.

    Aquarian, I couldn't see any combis which lie flat for newborn without using a cot/ cocoon. Any suggestions? Am about to head to bumps to bankruptcy to check though!!

    I thought all the combis did - but it was a long time ago, I may have been mistaken.

    Aquarian, no you are right. Having been to some baby shops today, the mclarens and britax's do lie flat but to be honest, they have very little protection for a new born (or am I being too precious already!!).

    Bugaboo Bee looks like way to go for us. Especially as someone is giving us the cocoon and maxi cosi!

    Thanks
