Hey everyone, I have a tiny new Suzuki swift that I love... But I am trying to find a stroller... The sales lady recommended the Baby Jogger - city mini.
Has any one tried it? Had one?? No someone with one?? Or have any other recommendations??
Thanks so much original.gif

Love it!

Easy I hand fold. Great to steer. Good size seat.

Ours fits very well in our little hatchback because it folds in half length wise

Ive got one and I love it!
Love the fold, can hold the baby, fold the pram and put it in the boot with the other hand, so light and compact, steering is great, even now the boof is an 18kg 3yo!

I would hold off buying one/laybying just yet as the new baby jogger range should be out by september which also brings in the Baby Jogger City GT, Baby Jogger Versa and the baby jogger city mini with improvements such as easier to access basket and adjustable handle.

You can google all of them on you tube to see videos of them.

We have a Big 7 seater 4WD.

But still got this stroller because of how compact it folds.

Love the way it can fold & fit in the footwell of a seat.

If all 7 seats are in use - we don't have much room left, but it can fit under ds feet so we can still fit an eski and bags in the back.

Suzuki swift -- check
BJ city mini -- check

Great!! I love it but if I were to buy it again I would not have got the green. I am too much of a grot and it shows dirt easily.

Can you hang the nappy bag on the handle or would that be too heavy?

Will be fine! I had a heavy picnic bag hanging on mine once, and even when my son hopped out it still stayed upright. Just get yourself some good quality stroller/mummy hooks!
