    My OH and I have been thinking about getting a new car as mine is a hatchback Yaris and no good for taking a baby around in. What do mummies recommend? We dont know whether to go for a small people carrier or a normal 5 door car. My OH has a Focus but I need one that suits baby. We live in a village and I'll need a suitable car when baby is born (he'll take the Focus to work). Let me know what you think is best . . . . . .

    Not sure what to suggest but dont recommend a Vauxhall Vectra with sport seats as we had problems getting car seats to fit. We also have a Clio but its 3 door and I have problems climbing into the back so I dont use that :?

    Ive got a 3 door hyundai getz, its not ideal but we manage, i had a fiesta when Scarlett was new born and that was very easy, and they are pretty cheap. I guess it depends how many children you are gonna have. I want lots so will prob end up with a minibus ha ha, i wish

    We have a Vauxhall Zafira with 7 seats! Its a great car but when all the seats are up, there is hardly any boot space. I'd prob be able to get a bag and a very small buggy in the boot!
    My pram is huge tut! We need a mini bus :)

    We have a vauxhall Zafira, I just love it, the boot is enormous unless you have the 2 extra seats up and the fact that you dont have to bend to put the little one in the car seat has made my back so much better.
