Aye, don't go near pram centre or Jan Stewart. Absolute rip offs.

We got ours from infababy and its top notch. Full 3 in 1 system for about 400 Inc the isofix.

For our second we just used the doona that we got for our first. No pram or anything like that.

A Colleague of mine had a wee boy 2 months before my daugher was born and got an Ikkle Bubba v3, we copied him and got one as well and it was brilliant. Included the Car Seat and the Iso-Fix base. Service was excellent and I honestly can't fault the Pram, in fact we're still using it as a Stroller and the wee yin is 16 months now. Sure we paid £500 for the whole lot. Here's the website https://www.icklebubba.com/product-category/travel-systems/

Glasgow Pram Centre is decent if you want to pay 800 + for a Pram including Car Seat & Iso-fix. Waste of time to be honest.

My latest car didn't cost that much...

When Maisie was born we went to shop in the Forge and some of the prams were £4k

That would have bought half our house...

Is that the one that’s also a car seat?

Aye, the wheels drop / fold and it's instantly a car seat. Handy as hell. No fiddling to take it apart and put bits in the boot.
Was originally bought for the older boy for the car and shopping whilst the travel system was for everything thing else. The travel system was punted practically brand new as was barely used .
For me it's up there with the tommee tippee machine as best gadgets bought

We have a baby jogger city stroller, got it second hand for much cheaper. When he was born we had another pram but he grew out of it and the car seat, I forget the make, we got it from th Edinburgh Pram in Corstorphone. It was fine but cost a fortune and was by no means the most expensive in the shop.

Love the star wars stencil. Was that easy enough?

Mother are in admin. Surprised it’s taken this long. Much more expensive than online for larger items.

Clothes were neither supermarket price or designer price. Just expensive for average quality.

Is there such a thing as an app you can have on a phone or iPad that just let's a wee one go nuts without accidentally changing everything into Chinese or whatever? Like you would lock it with a pin and they can swipe away at colourful shapes to their hearts content. I've searched on appstore but nothing quite matches what I'm after.

Most tablets have a kids mode etc, password to get into it and again for back out. Failing that, get them a fire kids.

Not a bad idea but I just know if I get that he'll not want it as he seems to want whatever device one of us is using.
