Mountain Buggy+one vs Pill and Teds Navigator...on the fence
I do not own either a MB of P&T pram...yet....we are still deciding which to buy for our first child, due in Feb 2014, and we want something we could use for two kids in the future, maybe!
We both test-drove both prams (double kit on the back on P&T) in the shop with those baby and 12kg child weights that you can use to see how the pram feels to actually push without finding a child and a baby to actually put in the pram. Mountain Buggy+one was far eaiser to push off, manover, and felt lighter (even though the weight of the prams is very simil...
I really wanted to love this pram.
I bought this pram for my 13 month old and newborn, my newborn is now 8 weeks old and 59cms long. She doesn’t fit in the lie flat position very well, if at all, as her feet are squished with her legs bent and the harness cannot be worn as it no longer reaches over her shoulders. Getting her out is difficult even without the double kit on the front. I have found there is no ventilation and quite often she is very sweaty and hot when I get her out (I have taken to using it without the plastic flap attachment for obvious reasons). Not good when y...ou live in a hot country and we’ve experienced a very hot summer this year. Recline is nonexistent for the child on the front, whether this be in the main seat or the double kit. If you are going to use it with a newborn and a toddler, I suggest using the car seat adapter but be aware that the double kit has a weight limit of 15kgs in the rear position. Maybe plan to have your baby in the cooler months! The storage compartment underneath is hard to get to with main seat down in the newborn position. Being aware that the compartment will disappear altogether once it is converted; I bought a Diddie bag in order to gain more storage. Where can I hang the Diddie bag on the pram when I’m using it for two? Nowhere. If I am to hang it from the handle as suggested, I’ll be hitting the youngest child in the head. The sun hood for the double kit is too small when it is used on the front of the pram; I have used the larger one for the main seat with no real trouble. The pram itself is heavy and a pain to fold and unfold. Despite being compact I find that is still takes up a bit of room in the boot. I drive a Honda Accord. I’ve taken to leaving the Dot at home for walks and using a stroller for the older child and strapping the newborn to me in a carrier on shopping trips On the plus side, it does handle very well, and my eldest loves it. It is well made, the materials are of a high quality and the harnesses are easy to adjust. I’m hoping it comes into its own once I’m using the double kit on the back for the youngest. I really do want to love it. Easy to manouvre, handle positions are excellent. No ventilation in main seat, too small for newbown, limited storage, heavy and cumbersome.
