Bugaboo Fox 2: Looking for an overnight-approved carrycot: would you recommend the Uppababy Cruz or the Bugaboo Fox 2?

Vivian and Javi • 01 Sep 2021


Thanks for the reviews here. I'm looking for a travel system with an overnight bassinet and deciding between the Uppababy Cruz and Bugaboo Fox 2. How do the bassinets for the two brands compare?

Hey there, guys!

Well, you picked two incredibly good strollers and stroller brands. Between these two, you actually can't make a bad decision, really!

If I was comparing the bassinets only, however, I would probably go for the Bugaboo. The reason is simple - it is larger, so it will last you longer. Also, I like that its canopy is of a cleaner design, but that is just a personal preference - the Uppababy Cruz's proving ample sun coverage as well thanks to the sun visor.

Overall, if I can add something into the decision-making, the just-released Bugaboo Fox 3 is also worth mentioning here since its carrycot now features the panoramic/ventilation window on the base as well, so even more airflow for the overnight sleeps (which is always better). Aaand for the sake of the Cruz, I will say that it is a wee bit smaller/more compact (also thanks to the smaller wheels) so if you don't need a kind-of all-terrain-wheels stroller but an urban one will do, the Cruz might be what you should be looking at.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
