Hi, my name is Pascale and I am the very lucky mummy of a beautiful, 9 month old baby girl called Briar. Briar and I live in Bathgate with her Daddy, Andrew. Briar was a very big surprise but you know what they say, all the best gifts are surprises! We try to keep active and love to go for long walks and to baby classes such as Baby Ballet and Baby Swim. We love spending time with friends and family and go to visit them whenever we can. We also just like to chill in the house with some cuddles and songs!

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! As a lovely start to the New Year our UPPAbaby Cruz arrived and I could not wait to get it opened! I had a good feeling about this buggy straight away as the box was so light. I carried it through with ease. Everything was packaged so nicely with lots of care and the instructions were the first thing you saw when you opened the box. The chassis with seat attached was one component and then it had 2 further boxes which contained the wheels and accessories. As you can see from my video it was incredibly easy to make up. I loved that everything made a satisfying "click" noise when in the correct place. The instructions were easy to read and allow you to enjoy the buggy quickly. The colour is just gorgeous and it's so light and easy to manoeuvre! First impressions are fantastic and I can't wait to take it out and about and see what Briar thinks!
Hi everyone! Today we took the Cruz out for our first walk!
Freezing cold so everyone wrapped up warm. I'd like to start by saying how lovely and slim this pushchair is. As you can see I have to push it past my car to get onto the pavement - this used to be so much hassle but this managed with ease!
It is so lightweight and easy to push, even made a 22 pound baby seem light! Briar is such a wriggle so I really appreciated the tight harness which comes over her arms and round her waist - the safety bar just gives that bit more security as well. I did have a bit of difficulty adjusting the straps and you seem to have to take the padding off in order to adjust them properly so not handy if you're going from somewhere where they need a pramsuit to just a top. It is incredibly easy to change from rearward to forward facing. We tried the rearward facing out so I could see how comfortable Briar looked. She was very comfortable and the seat sits nice and upright so she could see everything going on round about her. To recline the seat you just press a button at the back, just below the hood, and lower them. All together we had a great first outing and I even managed to stay upright when pushing up the very last hill!

Today we went to visit some close friends and took the Cruz in case we wanted to go for a walk. My boot was full of stuff from Christmas which hasn't made it into the house or other people's houses yet and really didn't want to empty it. Luckily, the Cruz is so slimline that it fit behind my chair - with the seat attached! Perfect for those with smaller boots and even those with pets who sit in the boot when travelling. I was very impressed!
