I think it is a stroller that I made full use of, right from the time my baby was about a few weeks old. I did not buy a bigger or more spacious stroller, because I wanted some thing that was light, and did not take up much space at home. If you want some thing light on the pocket and yourself, this is the one to go for. It also has a basket below the seat and one on the handle, which is very useful. Design One major reason for a 8 is that while the stroller looks perfectly fine, only when one pushes it, one realizes that the back lower part of the stroller hits the feet of the person pushing it. Not sure why, but maybe the height was such or the shape of the stroller was such. One has to really adjust one's distance from the stroller while holding on to it, to not hit it every time, as that can be annoying and tiring too. Safety The stroller is completely safe as such, with the safety belt intact, even for a small baby. Child Comfort It is comfortable, I had my baby sleep in it as well. However if he was sleeping, I liked to keep the stroller in sleeping position, supported by some one securely. Maneuverability It maneuvers well, thought at times the double wheels turned full circle and refused to moved forward, especially on uneven surfaces. Durability This is some thing I would give it full points on. I used it for a good 3 years and it is as good as new. I used it in US and also on the rougher roads of India, and it is still fine. Even bigger kids sat in it some times, but it endured all!
