Baby Travel Systems Review
With a baby on the way there is one piece of equipment that will be high on the shopping list, a Travel System. We have searched around and these 5 are our favourites. But before you go parting with your hard earned cash there are some things to consider.
It's important to think about your needs and lifestyle first. If you regularly use public transport or live up or down stairs, weight, portability and folding mechanisms will be vital. Also check to see how wide it is to make sure it fits through your front door. If you walk a lot you'll be shopping with your pushchair, so look out for a model which has a decent shopping basket.
If you need a pushchair that fits into the boot of your car make sure you measure the space before you go to the shop and take a tape measure with you.
If you're an outdoor type and like long walks in the woods, with a large car boot and lots of storage space in your house, then a 3-wheeler or all-terrain will be your best bet.

3. Hauck Viper Trio Set
Ive owned a hauck pushchair in the past and found it to be very well priced and great quality. This Travel System is certainly just as good and provides a full package of a stroller, carrycot and car seat for just over £200! On Amazon. Worth considering if you are on tight budget.
