    I bought my travel system ages ago out of excitement. it was a cheap one from mothercare, convenient, with car seat etc.

    but now whenever I see all those gorgeous mamas and papas ones I can't help but regret... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Hubby won't let me buy a new one as he thinks it'd be a waste. He thinks the one we got is fine.

    BUT I REALLY WANT A NEW ONE!!!!!! (and I can't be bothered to sell the old one on ebay - it wouldn't be worth much anyway) :roll:

    :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    he won't even let me pay for a new one myself!
    he says i can use the money for other things the baby needs...
    he makes me feel all guilty when he says that. i don't wanna run out of nappies one day, with not much money and think "i shouldn't have bought that new pram" :cry: :cry:

    Dunno... I think it looks fine tbh...

    I paid out for an expensive travel system when I had Tia... and tbh, I really should have saved my money and spent it on something else... She ended up being in the car seat for about 4 months before I had to buy a bigger model (yet more money... :roll:), the pram top was a pain in the bum to collapse down and carry anywhere.. and the pushchair was heavy and cumbersome on the buses and around shops

    In the end I just got a maclaren and mostly used a sling... Couldn't beat the Maclaren plain old pushchair... it lasted five years and a trip round Disney with my daughter (then 5) and my sister (then 13 but she's only the size of a 9 year old) being pushed around in it... and I only got rid of it because of space.... and well Tia didn't need it anymore...

    I have never looking for one persoanlly, so i shall traul the bay now and give you a general idea.


    Is ur bloke tall? is he gonna be using the pram? If so then tell him to push it, as im 6ft and i CANT push prams like that, there far too clumpy, and you end up kicking the back bit...


    How long have you had it?


    If its not long then take it back for a refund?


    If you want me to look for a mama papas, then lemme know the style, ur limit, postcode, if you can collect and if so how far your willing to travel in mile and when you want to buy/pay for it, and i will do me best to get you a bargain

    Well you probably need to ignore my opinion then.... I probably think Laetiticas travel system looks good because I've been waiting for mine to be delivered for 17 weeks now.... :roll: Child will be in college by the time it turns up... so any travel system looks good atm... although mines very much like the mothercare one with just the pushchair and the seat...

    Not doing the pram stuff again.. its just another bed you've got to buy and wash more covers for... :rotfl:

    :talkhand:

    pram envy. Its a horrible disease. You cant go out without looking at other prams, it eats away at you till you cant take anymore and before you know it you are in the shop buying a new one, lying to your oh that it was in the sale and praying he doesnt look at the reciept.

    There are people who can help.
