At a glance:

Diono have thoughtfully combined the Quantum2 overnight sleeping carrycot with active airflow, and a simple, stylish and versatile fold-away carrycot stand for moments of snoozing and sleeping, perfect for any day of the week, at home or away. Suitable from birth the Quantum 2 carry cot is lined with a soft, removable quilted jersey carrycot liner and includes a smart breathable and perforated airflow mattress, set into an aerated carrycot base.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Helen: The instructions are relatively easy to follow. The extension of the handle is really good. My husband is 6ft5 and would be able to push this pram comfortably. The massive hoods are a brilliant feature as they offer privacy and protection for children. The rain covers provide good coverage, fit well and are easy to put on. The material used is very plush and cushioned making it comfortable. The seat liners can be removed for washing. The base for the carrycot is sturdy and it is easily folded away for storage.

Niamh: I would recommend this product to anyone, especially those with more than one child. Being able to transfer from a pram to a stand allows quick transfer time which means extra hands to help with other children. The design is brilliant and comes in lots of lovely colours. Most of the pram can be taken off and washed which keeps it clean and hygienic. The build is lovely and comfortable and it feels like a very stable pram. It has a big basket underneath which gives lots of storage. The hood of the pram also gives a lot of shade for baby.

Natalie: I really liked how the carrycot could be used as a Moses basket with it having its own separate stand. This would be great if you were travelling or on holiday as you would only have to take your travel system and the stand. The hood on the buggy seat is brilliant - great for sunny days as it completely covers your child but keeps them breezy and visible to you. I think the pram as a whole is built really well and seems very sturdy especially if you have a toddler in the pram. It seems strong on its back wheels when going up curbs.

How did this product make your life easier?

Paige: This pushchair and carrycot system is a fantastic product. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into the design to make life much easier with a baby! I love the idea of having the carrycot separate with a stand that can be substituted for a Moses basket. This saves you money as you don't have to buy this separately.

Sheri: This product comes with some amazing extras including the base that can be used with the carrycot to make a Moses basket. The mattress of the carrycot is breathable which is great for newborns. After the child grows out of the carrycot and into the seat, this can be faced towards or away from the parent and both of these easily clip on to the base.

Tonileigh: I love how bulky and sturdy the pram is. There are a couple of things that could be improved; tilting the pram to go up the street curb was a little challenging as the pram is quite heavy. The brake could be in a better place as a mother of two may use a buggy board which would then lead to the user not getting easy access to the brake. Other than that I think the pram is great. Looks luxury and looks expensive.

Would you choose this product to win?

Olivia: I definitely think this product should win because it’s amazing value for money. It easily folds and is easily attachable onto the pram. I love the fact that the carrycot can be used as a bedtime cot too as the baby would get used to where they sleep. My baby can be quite particular about her carry cot/pram but when I took her out in this she was so happy.

Rebecca: I think the retail price is quite high, especially for mums who are on a budget. However, I do think you get what you pay for with this pram. Apart from the price, I definitely think it should win. The one thing that stands out is the way you can transport the carrycot to the travel stand with such ease.

Anneli: This is a great quality product that stands out from others on the market. It has a good shopping basket and the sun hood is the best I’ve seen. The price, general appearance and weight put me off and would stop me from choosing this particular pushchair. I do like some of the well thought-out design features such as the brake and the sun hood, but this wouldn't be enough to justify the price.

What changes would you make to this product?

Abigail: I would change its appearance as I prefer prams that are metal and more stylish. It is quite bulky. I am not a fan of the colour choice we were given also it was very bright. The wheels look plastic and cheap. The size of it makes it hard to move around on the high street.

Gemma: The tyres! Air filled would increase the suspension and make the pram a definite contender for me to buy. I do not dislike anything else about it. It ticks almost every box.

Sarah: I found the frame of this pushchair too wide, large and bulky. It would take up quite a bit of room in my boot. I feel the chassis could be made narrower so the whole product didn’t feel so big. Having said that, if you have space and aren’t worried about having a compact pushchair, it is solid and has fabulous shopping storage.
