I'm expecting my first baby. I want to buy a stroller that either also converts into a pram, or has a separate bassinet attachment. I have looked at frames with separate stroller and bassinet attachments, which look very nice and sturdy, but they also seem very large and very heavy. I am disabled, in a small home, in the countryside, with a small car (Ford Fiesta) for trips to town / nearby family, so buying something which doesn't fit into the car or which I can't possibly lift seems unwise.
However, very compact and lightweight options (6-7kg, GB Pocket, for example) seem very flimsy and the way the bassinet attaches doesn't look very secure. I will not be doing any jogging along beaches or forest paths! But we do get a lot of snow where I live - soon after baby's due date, so pram / stroller frame needs to be relatively robust for pushing on snow, but also fit easily into my car and negotiate shopping aisles without a struggle (I also use disability taxis, buses and trains, but no plans for flights in the near future).
My mother already bought a Britax car seat with a click on / off base. But Britax frame with stroller and bassinet attachments seem very huge and heavy, albeit sturdy and attractive. I have spent days looking at different options and feel utterly confused! Is there a good middle ground option between super lightweight / small and super heavy / huge?! My budget is maximum €1000.
Thank you in advance for all advice / suggestions.
