"My baby daughter and I roadtested the Chicco Liteway buggy.  As my older daughter now walks a fair distance, having a buggy rather than a double pram is easier for short trips out.

The buggy feels very light but sturdy when pushing it. I have mainly used it on footpaths but when we went for an afternoon on the park it was just as easy to control on the grass.  Also, having two handles to push the buggy, rather than a bar, makes an enormous difference as it helped with my posture and I didn't feel as though I was bending down to push the buggy.

The back reclines flat and I could easily do this with one hand (great for when trying to restrain a toddler with the other hand) and the whole pram folds down really easy with a flick of the foot on the locking mechanism.  The only criticism I have is that the optional grip/safety bar provided has to be removed before you can fold the buggy down. 

One massive plus is that the shopping basket unclips from the buggy and has a drawstring which turns into a rucksack-type affair.  This is really useful for all those bits and pieces babies need when you have to park the buggy somewhere.  The pink version (which I have) is very bright and unmissable (it is also available in blue).  I have had some lovely comments from other mums about how it looks."
