REVIEW - Mothercare MY4

When I found out I was pregnant I couldn't wait to start buying things but for the most part I did. I wanted to wait and make sure the baby was nice and healthy. One of the last things we got was the pushchair. I spent weeks doing research and looking at reviews and asking people for advice. After all this I came across the Mothercare Mychoice 4 wheeler pram & pushchair. 

When the time came to buy it we were very lucky and Mothercare were having a sale. So instead of £370 for the chassis and seat unit we got it for around £190. BARGAIN!! The only catch was that they only colour they were doing in the sale was pink and I mean bright pink. I didn't mind but Mark wasn't too happy about pushing around a pink pram. He finally came round to the idea and we got the pram.

When it came I couldn't wait to put it together. As I did I found that one of the wheels was broken but with a quick call to Mothercare all was fine and they sent us a new wheel. Fab customer service!

Things I love
The biggest plus that appealed to me was that it could be both a pram and a pushchair. It can also be parent facing for when baby is young and forward facing for when they want to have a look around. It can also be paired with a maxi cosi car seat. I also do love the colour and have gotten quite a few comments on it. The handle is fully adjustable. The brakes push on and off so your toes don't hurt if wearing flip flops (very important in my mind) It is very easy to push, fits on a bus nicely and easily moves around shops. You can also buy this chassis with 3 wheels, such a great option.

Things I don't like

The shopping basket is quite small and quite a pain to get on and off the chassis. I got around this by attaching a baby elegance pram hook to give me a bit of extra room for shopping bags. I like this one the best as it wraps around the handle with a fabric strap so doesn't damage the handle like some other pram hooks. You can buy the baby elegance pram hook HERE

Overall I am really pleased with this pram. I think we made the right choice for us. If we are lucky enough to have a second baby and it was a boy we would seriously think about buying the separate black pram unit and using this chassis.

Any prams you would recommend?
