For the last three months I have had the pleasure of testing the new Britax B-AGILE. This stroller has been everywhere with us since its arrival.
So, here we are. Finally I can share with you my final thougts.
In my last post I mentioned how I was yet to use the stroller with our new addition the Little dude, this has now been done. The buggy is suitable for babies from birth. However as a personal preferance I like my newborn to be facing me in the stroller. This is not an option with the B-AGILE stroller alone, but may be if you buy as a travel system. At nearly two months old I got over the fear of not having the Little dude face me and we went out and about with the B-AGILE.
Firstly I will say that it’s a shame the stroller does not come with a footmuff (the Britax Cosytoes footmnuff is available to buy seperately). I felt that the Little dude was quite exposed and at this time of year I felt he would have benefited from the footmuff as it’s very cold out at the moment. However, suited and booted in his winter snowsuit and wrapped up in a blanket he looked quite comfortable.
However, footmuff aside it was easy to strap him in and I was more than happy that he was safe and secure, but again, somesort of neck support for new newborns would be beneficial.
While out and about I found that I was not as bothered about the Little dude not facing me as I thought I would be and there is a mesh cut-out in the hood so that I can see down into the seat to keep an eye on him.
So, while I probably would prefer to use the B-AGILE with the Little dude when he is a bit bigger, it is perfectly suitable for newborns and I feel they would be more than happy. Little dude sleeps very soundly in this stroller. I feel that when he hits about four months old and he’s wanting to be looking around the B-AGILE will be prefect for him.
