Buying a running buggy which can also be your everyday buggy is smart. The Mountain Buggy Terrain is a great option for a universal use buggy. It can be used from birth as it is due to the lie flat mode but many parents prefer a carrycot in the early stages in order to have their baby parent facing. Depending on your size of baby they will grow out of this at 5-6 months.
Last year Mountain Buggy launched a new item, their 'Cocoon' as an alternative Carrycot. If you want to know the differences to that and the Carrycot Plus (a question asked more and more) then take a look below.
CARRYCOT PLUS FEATURES
The Mountain Buggy Carrycot Plus has ways to be set up; Traditional carrycot, a slight incline for reflux mode and then a smaller incline seat. It also has metal feet which keep it off the floor when not on the buggy, as airflow underneath is recommended for safe sleeping. It has a fully ventilated removable mattress which has passed safe sleep tests meaning you can use this as a moses basket when travelling.
