Cosatto Giggle 2 Travel System Review

We bought our travel system quite early on in our pregnancy, before we had our 20 week scan and resisting the urge to put it up until we'd have that halfway-mark scan and confirmation that everything with our baby was OK. As soon as we got home after our scan, we celebrated by putting our travel system together. I can't even tell you how excited I was and it made the wait for our baby's arrival even harder, keeping it in my office where I could see it every single day.

I think it's safe to say when you find out you're pregnant, one of the first things you picture yourself doing is taking your baby out in their pram, introducing them to the big world outside. I'll never forget the first time I took Willow out on my own, going to meet her daddy after work and showing her off to his colleagues who wanted to see our beautiful little girl. I felt proud as punch, with my whole world in our gorgeous, bright and colourful pushchair.
Cosatto Giggle 2 Travel System Car Seat Review

With Willow now being 16 weeks we have been using our Cosatto daily for almost 4 months. It's given me time to really test it out before updating you all, as promised in my post about choosing our travel system, on what we think and whether we made the right choice choosing Cosatto.

Our travel system came with a carry cot, stroller seat and a car seat - you'd usually have to purchase the car seat separately, but we managed to snap up our entire travel system in the Mothercare sale, with the car seat thrown in for free! We'd seen our design - Fable - in store and were completely smitten with how colourful and bright it is, so we just couldn't resist the amazing deal we picked up.

We used the carry cot a lot more when Willow was between 0-6 weeks, and at home we use it regularly if she happens to fall asleep before we can get her upstairs and into her Snuzpod 3-in-1 bedside crib; we'll pop her in the carrycot all snuggled up and she'll happily sleep in there. When out and about, we mostly use the car seat. I adore how dainty and compact it makes the pram and it also means she can see things as we wander around. 

It is extremely important to bare in mind when using a car seat that babies should never be in them for extended periods of time and once you are home you should always let them lay down flat and stretch out. 

I find our Cosatto extremely easy to use. Everything about it from the handle, the design and shape, the way everything is so easy to use; popping the different seats on and off, dismantling the travel system entirely to fit into the boot of a car, I wish the basket below was bigger, but other than that it's brilliant. Steering is easy, getting it in and out of our house, which requires manoeuvring a very big step, is easy. It feels strong, it's incredibly well made and overall it looks fantastic. Even the rain covers, which I've always find impossible to use on pushchairs in the past with friends and families children, are super easy to pop on and off and fit so snugly, making sure everything stays dry, protecting Willow from rain and wind. 

I'm really excited to put Willow in the stroller seat when she's old enough and big enough. It can be both parent facing and forward facing, and I just can't wait for her to see more of the world when we are out and about!

I wholeheartedly believe we made the right decision with our travel system. Cosatto is a brand we researched well before investing in and their rave reviews are backed up by their fantastic designs and brilliant products which tick all the right boxes. If you're on the hunt for the perfect travel system for you, I really recommend checking out the Cosatto range - I couldn't imagine using anything else for Willow!
