Hi Eli,

We are deciding between two strollers: Inglesina Electa and Cybex Melio Carbon. We like the Inglesina for is cot basically, that it looks super comfortable for the baby. But we also loved the lightweight of the Cybex Melio Carbon, almost 3 kg less. Which one would you recommend?

Hiya, Ivanna,

I personally would not go for the Melio, it is rather flimsy. From these two, I would definitely rather go for the Electa, even if that is quite a lot bulkier than the Melio.

However, if I were thinking about the Melio, I would also think about the similar though higher quality Cybex Mios, so that would definitely triumph over the Inglesina. Still, if the choice is only between the Electa and the Melio, I personally would choose the Electa - as the carrycot, you were right, is incredibly comfortable for the baby, and also really really spacious.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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