Choosing a Buggy: Our Moms Recommend Their Top 5
MOMS’ ADVICE: There are so many choices and brands out there these days fighting for your attention, that choosing a buggy can become a confusing and difficult task. There are just so many options!
Do you go for the one recommended by your friend, the one that’s on sale, the one that has fantastic reviews online? Are you choosing it based on safety features, size or colour? Or all three? Will you be using it for city walking or country off-roading? There is so much to consider that it can all become a bit overwhelming.
Can you help this mom?
One of our moms left a message on our Facebook page, asking for some buggy advice:
I could really do with some help choosing a buggy. I just don’t know which one to get. I need something suitable for countryside walking, preferably with large tyres and a large basket underneath. I would also like it to have a carry cot that I can use from birth. Can you please ask your lovely moms for some help? There’s just so many to choose from!
We got a fantastic response from our eumom community and were able to put together a list of five highly recommended buggies:

Comments from our moms
“I have the Bugaboo. I’ve used it in the woods and on the beach. It’s perfect! It’s lightweight, easy to fold and easy to manage.”
“I have an Uppababy Vista
. It has everything you’re looking for and much more. It has a huge basket, is easy to fold with one hand, and has a carry cot, car seat and buggy all attach. It has a built-in sun visor on the carrycot and buggy part. It’s also really easy to change between the two. The carry cot is safe to use at night and you can buy a stand for your bedroom to pop it on. All material is breathable and washable. You can have baby facing you or away from you. It can change into a double if you need it down the road. The handle height is adjustable and the carry cot is at a nice height. Can you tell I Iove mine?! I’ve had it for 14 months and will never replace it.”
“The Out and About
is brilliant. You won’t find an easier buggy to push on all terrains. The carrycot fits onto frame from birth. You’ll get years out of it.”
all the way! I had one for my last little boy and it was amazing. The tires are made from foam so are really durable and won’t puncture.”
“Definitely the Quinny.
I have mine for five years and am on my 2nd child with it. It’s the best thing I ever bought. It’s all country road walking I do. You wouldn’t know you were even pushing it!”
“You should look up the City Select Baby Jogger, it is fantastic. It has a large basket and is great for the countryside. It can also turn into a double if necessary in the future!”
