I'm looking at getting one of a Baby Jogger F.I.T. from amazon.com - shipping is reasonable and all reviews seem to think they are the bees knees for running. However, the info I CAN'T find, is whether this pram is suitable for a child from birth (not running, just general motoring around) coz the forward facing, sitting upright set up surely doesn't look newborn friendly??
Or do I just need to add the compact pram/basinette attachment to make it 'rear facing and lying down friendly' for a newborn? And if so, I would LOVE links to pics of how this set up works coz I can't find ANYTHING on the baby jogger site *grumbles*

The video demo gives you an idea about how far the seat reclines. Basically because it doesn't fully recline you would need to use some sort of head support for the first few months. Not advisable to run with a baby under 6 months with good head control.
Also read some of the amazon reviews for a better understand of all the pro and cons by other parent who have this pram

I bought mine from Amazon when they still shipped here, but for my summit I bought also from Amazon and had a friend who lives in the US forward it on. There are companies who do this (freight forwarding).
It doesn't recline fully, but neither does my summit or Maclaren stroller and I've used them from birth - my kids hated lying completely flat anyway. However, the FIT is a big, roomy pram so a newborn does get pretty lost in it, I used head supports for a few months to help them feel snug and started running when they had good head control and on my GP's advice (4/5 months and with the seat fully reclined back).
Another great feature of the FIT is the three wheels all come off easily, so it fits behind the front drivers seat in the car leaving your whole boot free if you need for other things (like I do for my big dog).
If you want to PM me I can email you some photos of my kids in it.
Add - I didn't think you could use a capsule with this pram, but I might be wrong...
