What they say:

“The Britax Affinity 2 is designed to ensure a smooth ride for parents and children, without compromising on style. The lightweight aluminium base is easy to transport and fold, with an automatic lock feature. Foam-filled rear wheels iron out bumps in the road and eliminate the worry of flat tyres when out and about.

“A large carrycot and seating surface ensures children will be comfortable at all times. In addition to its easy-to-transport practical design, parents can choose from a range of colours for both the base model and the soft goods, changing colours to suit their mood! ”

Would you recommend the Britax Affinity 2 to other mums?    

I love the Britax product range and have the 2012 model from my first child. This model is of a better quality and I love the versatility of going from the pram to the buggy attachment. Both attachments give a fanatic ride and its easy to fold. I love the fact that the pram covers are zipped in and can be easily removed to wash.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Britax Affinity 2 is great for a new mum to grow with her baby. The carrycot/pram can ensure baby can be transported in a sleeping position and then detached and brought indoors, it’s also great if you go somewhere and want to pop your baby down to sleep in familiar surroundings. Then the buggy is great to move up to the next level being able to have baby both rear and forward facing.

I love the fact you can change between pram and buggy, and the car seat also fits on to the base so gives a greater variety of uses. The fact that I feel it is at a very competitive price point too for what you get also makes it a clear winner.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing it would be to have it as a three wheeler. I found the four wheels a bit more bulky to navigate. Also it is a very chunky product and I know this could put some parents off who are limited for space within their cars. Especially with the combination of carrycot and buggy.

The design looks really modern and the Britax Affinity 2 offers some excellent features for parents to wish their pram to last them from birth to toddler. The pram is what I would call a bouncy pram it was a joy to push.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This is a full-size travel system pram yet is very car friendly. I have a small car yet the base and carrycot fit into my boot with no problem. I really liked how much coverage the hood offered when it was unzipped. Rain cover was installed with in a few seconds.

This would be the travel system I would choose to buy for my new baby if I was a first-time parent. The carrycot is a great size and would last a baby until they are six months they can then move into the seat unit and you can also use this pram with a car seat. It was a really smooth ride for my child when I push them in this pram. The design was very attention grabbing and people were surprised when I said it was made by Britax.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would really love it if the Britax Affinity 2 had a bigger shopping basket. With a full-size travel system you would expect small room. Including some more accessories including a cup holder would attract more buyers. Was not keen on the bumper bar and it's fabric cover which cannot be removed. I would still buy regardless of these things.

The Britax Affinity 2 is fantastic. It's so stylish, easy to use and comfy for baby. It's great how you can buy different colour bases and then colour packs so you can pretty much customise your own pushchair. It's so easy to fold and recline. Strapping baby in is easy, the brakes are great and it faces both ways and changes easily.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Having a washable liner is great as pushchairs soon get dirty. It's great to be able to have it rear or forward facing and the recline is a easy one handed release. It is quite compact when collapsed and can be easily taken in and out of the car. The rain over is so easy to fit and the pram fits on easily and is perfect for tiny babies.

I loved the Britax Affinity 2. Everything is so well thought out and it's so easy to use. I even like the way the straps click together. It's so easy to manoeuvre and the push bar extends for parents’ comfort. My baby was so happy in it, he loved being able to see me and he soon fell sound asleep.

What changes would you make to this product?

My only gripes were that maybe the basket could be a bit bigger and that overall it was quite expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for. However you don't need to get all the extras or you don't have to get them all in one go. It did take quite a while to set it all up, but I was more than happy with it when it was complete.

Loved the Britax Affinity 2. Excellent value for money for a travel system. Gorgeous design, love that you can choose a colour pack and then easily change it if you have another baby. This is a full travel system so you can attach a carry cot, pram seat or the car seat. Wonderful to have a choice. Glides along the pavement with ease and offers a smooth ride for the baby.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The pram was so easy to assemble! The seat unit was really easy to change from front facing to rear facing, the pram glides along the uneven pavement where I live - excellent suspension. Very easy to get on and off the bus/train. The extending canopy kept the sun off the baby on hot days - it was great coverage. Easy red/green brake system so you know with a quick glance whether it is on or not.

I have a big baby and I know that the seat unit will last a while as it is so roomy compared to some of the other prams. It's a really eye catching pram and comes with the bits you would hope - rain cover and fabrics. Being able to change the colour pack is a massive positive for this pram as if it gets dirty you can make the pram look like new again for a reasonable price.

What changes would you make to this product?

I did get a flat tyre when using this pushchair so plastic wheels at the back would have been much better (like they are at the front) but that was only a minor issue. It also didn't come with a pump like some of the other prams do (unless it was missing?), that would be handy for consumers especially in the middle of nowhere with a baby.
