Silver Cross Special Edition Petals Pram with Raincover
In the Silver Cross Special Edition Petals Pram with Raincover baby is kept close enough to you for comfort, and you can both see each other easily even when the rain cover is up.
One of the best things about the Surf 2 is the option to convert it to either forward-facing or parent facing, and as we’re still at too early a stage to have Sleep Thief facing away from us, it was great to have this option.
When your baby is old enough (after four to five months at a guess), you can move them into the Surf 2 seat unit, which has three adjustable positions and which was easy to adjust.
How was the newborn kit?
The newborn kit is of a very high quality, and the Sleep Thief was always comfortable, treating us to a few smiles and nodding off every-so-often, especially when we were out and about. Though she also slept in the carrycot when we’d gone out for dinner.
The carrycot has a very nice removable mattress (hand wash suitable), and is incredibly roomy – more so, in fact, than her Moses basket, so using this would save on having to transport too much for trips, as Silver Cross state that this is suitable for overnight sleeping.
Whilst at ten weeks she has practically outgrown the basket, I imagine we would get at least another month-to-six weeks out of the newborn kit. The adjustable hood, whilst also being very attractive, does offer a lot of shelter both from the elements and light, and would be ideal to take on holiday or long trips.
What about storage?
The Surf 2 isn’t really geared towards shopping, and although the shopping basket is adjustable, you could barely fit more than a carrier bag of groceries in this.
It’s too small to fit our breast-feeding pillow (a Boppy), which is a bit of a downside. The frame would be more than suited to accommodate a shopping hook or two, however.
The car seat is surprisingly heavy, much more so than the Graco, though it is well-padded and, I would imagine, comfortable, though we have had a lot of tears on use.
The adjustable handle has a setting which makes it more secure when resting on the ground, something our previous model didn’t, which is a nice bonus.
The harness isn’t the easiest we’ve used, though, and it can be a little tricky to fasten, though adjusting the length of the straps is reasonably straight forward, accessible through the compartment where you store the instruction manual. Despite the weight, the seat is easy to secure in the car with either seatbelt or ISOFIX.
How was it in the rain?
Both Simplicity car seat and stroller come with excellent rain covers, which are just incredibly easy to put on and off, and these are easily stored ready for use.
It might sound daft, but this was really a highlight for us, as that on the Graco was a bit of a faff to sort in the rain, and would take a few minutes, whereas this takes seconds.
The aprons are interchangeable between carrycot and seat unit, and this is one of the major downsides of the pram.
The zips on the carrycot are a bit of a nightmare, and jam frequently when they reach any curves. Replacement aprons are available in a number of colours and designs, should yours break or you want to change the design later on, though this isn’t especially cost effective.
The quality of the apron material, however, is very good, and Sleep Thief was well protected from the elements.
