I have a Steelcraft Acclaim and love it to bits original.gif

Used it with DD1 and it is 4 years old but looks brand new - I cannot justify spending exuberant amounts of money on fancy prams! I go for practical use original.gif

I got the Baby Jogger City Mini as it's quite lightweight, easy to collapse and I like the look of it too original.gif Also not too expensive compared with some of them. I didn't get the bassinet attachment as it's not cheap and I figure they're only in that for a few months. Instead I got a SNS Unity Capsule for the car, which can be attached to the BJ, so I'll be able to take him straight out of the car into the pram without waking him.

I agree the whole thing is very overwhelming and it took me ages to decide. You really need to just think about what you are looking for in regards to where you will be using it (narrow shopping centre aisles, all terrain, jogging), how compact you need it to fold up etc.

We bought a Combi Spazio.  It has a reversible handle so baby can go backwards and forwards; it goes from newborn to toddler, is very lightweight (great for carrying up 3 flights of stairs to our flat); and it is purple!

We haven't used it yet (another 5 weeks to go) but are very hopeful we made the right choice.

I got the Baby Jogger City Mini too  original.gif

Took me ages to decide, but what won me over was the quick-fold, the size once folded (as it won't take up all our car boot space) and the big sun shade (plus it's a good price!)

We got the Baby Jogger City Select because you can attach a second seat. We're using it as a single pram now (it's great) and will add the second seat when number two arrives. Easy folding, smooth steering and lots of storage room underneath. Cost $920 for pram + second seat + delivery. (NB. you don't have to buy the second seat straight away, can buy it separately later if you end up having two kids close together)

I have a steelcraft agile which is fantastic, weights about 7kgs, so easy to fold, press button, pull strap and it flips up into itself. i also got the steelcraft infant carrier which clips into the agile so i didn't have to take baby out of capsule to put into pram. Didn't cost much more than $600 i don't think, which included delivery to my door, infant carrier and an extra infant base for other car (pramwarehouse online)

We got the Baby Jogger City Select as well, we got it because we liked the features of it including the forward and rear facing options and the ability to add a second seat when we have another child. We actually bought the second seat already because we got the Diamond colour which is being discontinued because they have brought in a new colour. Hehe forward thinking. It also has awesome storage and we also got the mico casi capsule and attachments to use for the first 6 months.

Depends on what you want from a pram, budget etc.
