Living with the Giggles

We have been using the Giggle for a while now, Harry is now just over 4 weeks and overall we LOVE it.

We have shown you what is inside the box, now I want to show you the CarryCot option of the Cosatto Giggle.

I never had a Carrycot for Emmy so I was very excited to receive one to try with Harry especially one which looks so funky and is so eye catching.

The Carrycot is suitable from birth and has a carry handle with a swing opening catch which makes it easy to put Harry in and out, there is also a removable washable liner which matches the lining of the hood.  The liner is fitted in place with Velcro and comes out very easily - great for when Harry was sick in it - it washes at 30 degrees and dries quickly too (always a bonus).

There is a firm base and a foam mattress meaning this Carrycot has been used off of the chassis as another sleeping option for Harry.  We have used it on the coffee table as somewhere safe to keep a sleeping Harry away from his boisterous sister when sleeping and we have also used it on our Moses basket stand when Harry refused to sleep in the basket.

There is a matching apron for the Carrycot which is fully removable, this is good for outside use to stop baby getting too cold and acts as a wind barrier.  When using inside you can remove the carry handle fully if wanted or just unhinge.

The mattress is quite thin so I haven't used too often at night but it would make a great temporary bed if travelling or staying somewhere over night, however it isn't made to be a permanent overnight sleeper so this is fine.

The frame colour is carried over onto the Carrycot and it has a nice big hood which gives good cover from the sun and the wind.

When on the frame the pushchair looks amazing and I've had lots of comments on it - in fact a lot of people have said they would consider having another baby just for the funky buggy!! The pushchair's suspension is rather firm so when Harry is in the Carrycot he is rocked about quite a bit.  This will be a better option for us to use when he is a little bigger and not so tiny - he is only just over 8lbs so has little control over his head at the moment, when he is a little sturdier I'm sure this won't bother him at all.

Another thing I love about the Giggle is the handle position can be changed by pressing the buttons either side and moving the handle either up or down meaning that Daddy is happy pushing it when in the highest position, I have it in the middle and Emmy can push her little brother on her own when it is in the lowest position - which is extremely sweet - although her steering leaves a lot to be desired!

Even with the Carrycot on the Chassis it is very light to push and easy to manoeuvre.  Attaching the Carrycot is very easy - just clip onto the frame and taking off again is just as easy however the buttons to press are smallish and it takes a little practise to do so.
 
 
 
The Carrycot is roomy and should last a good 6 months until Harry is big enough to use the seat unit.
I will be showing you the seat unit with a large toddler very soon and telling you what we think.

  2. Hi Emma
    We are using the bumprider with this. It's the most universal fitting board I have found and works really well.
    No need to screw into the frame as with some other boards it works like cable ties around the frame so doesn't damage the buggy at all.
    Emmy loves it.

    I'm short do makes pushing slightly harder however I just walk to the side and don't have a problem.

    I tie it up to the frame with ribbon when not in use

  4. Hi I've recently purchased a cosatto giggle and also a bumprider. Just wondering where on the pushchair chassis you attached the bumprider connectors? Having trouble picking out the best spot!
    Thanks

    1. Hi Nicola

      I attached to the brake bar just inside of the wheel area.
