Looking for pram/stroller (single) that has the one seat which converts from full recline or bassinet to upright/toddler seat.

I've come across the Childcare hola, Phil and Teds Promenade and Valco Rebel Q.

Any other suggestions? What would be your pick?

TIA

I am not 100% certain but I think many strollers, including Maclaren have an 18kg weight recommendation but the Silver Cross Dazzle does have a 25kg limit. It lies completely flat too.

Versa doesn't go flat or it'd be perfect

thanks STBG I'll look at the silver cross dazzle.

silver cross doesn't seem to be reversible?

It is a little bit of a 'different' looking stroller but it is light and it's appeal is that it does take that extra weight. You can also get a bassinette attachment that sits in it.

The Valco Zee Spark has a seat that starts as a bassinet, then turns into a full seat without having to pull anymany parts off/add anything.

I wish the BJCS had this feature - it would have mode it perfect!

edit: you do have to take the lining out of the bassinet, but it looks pretty simple!

I looked at the zee spark as well but the rebel q is very similar with a roomier looking seat. Thanks!

Thanks STBG- but I'm looking to avoid the 'extra' bassinet attachments as stroller would be swapped between newborn and toddler regularly.

I have a Rebel Q, it's great and takes a huge load as you can attach a toddler seat to the safety bar. I used it with DD2 from birth as its deep and you can flip up the foot area so it's all enclosing like a bassinet.

I'm really leaning towards the Rebel Q. Is the seatback a decent height? My 2yr old is quite tall and I'm wondering if he will be comfortable in it?

We have a Stokke. Easily reversible and the seat is like a car seat, moulded plastic - so your baby will be all snuggly and your toddler can sit up and see the world. It's a winner. It's rated to 20kg too.

Yes Stokke are only 15kgs in the seat insert.

Sorry I missed the reversible bit, I meant that with the bassinette fitted it is facing you :-)

I've got a Love'nCare Zooper. It can take up to 25kgs.

It has a reversible handle, lies completely flat and also upright.

The only problem it's a bit heavy and bulky.

ETA: It apparently weighs 8.5kgs.
