Hi folks,
I have a 2017 model and the bassinet tilt is the wrong way (head down). I was just wondering if there was a way to adjust it.

I’m keen to know what it’s like on rough terrain too please.

Hi Jade,
Thanks for your question!
Our prams have been designed for "urban living" so footpaths, shops and local parks are ideal surfaces. When it comes to off-road and uneven terrain they can definitely handle it, they just won't feel as comfy for you or bub as a 3 wheeled jogging stroller would with much larger wheels.
It's really the front swivel wheels that become the issue rather than the rear when you take a pram off road. And the same is true for all strollers with smaller front swivel wheels less than 17cm diameter (our DUO with front wheels of 23cm performs the best of our 3).
Our new Aeroglide wheels are made from a high-grade PU rubber that offers some of the cushioning that air tires do but without the maintenance and punctures. They're also resistant to fine gravel and small stones so they'll stay looking newer for longer and won't wear out anywhere near as fast as traditional EVA wheels.
Cheers,
Babybee Team

I live in a country town and walk my dogs at the local rifle range which has gravel and dirt roads, not too rough like pot holes or anything like that. Will the Babybee Rover 2020 be ok for this type of terrain on the regular?

Hi, does this pram allow a 2 in 1 style where the bassinet converts to a seat or do you have to have a seperate bassinet?
I only have a small car and so am looking for something that will avoid a seperate bassinet to avoid limited space in the car?
Thanks

The seat and bassinet are interchangeable. My son is under 2 months old so I use the bassinet only, and the seat is stored in my closet for when I need it. When my son is a bit older, i will then change to the seat. The pram is very easy to use and to change the seating, and it folds nicely into less than 1m2 area in my vehicle.

I cant find any info on suspension. How is the suspension on this pram? My partner and i always on roadtrips.

The suspension is really good! I take bubs to golf every week on dirt, grass, even hard sand this pram has no issues. Plus the hard plastic wheels are so much better than pump up wheels! My family are a bunch of 4x4 junkies and my brother literally laughed when he saw the pram cos he was like this thing has full spring suspension lol! xx

Hello, is the bassinet safe for overnight sleeping?

I think it would be fine, my daughter dosen't use it for overnight sleeping. The inside of the bassinet is so soft and spacious. You will not regret buying this pram its amazing.

Babybee
Babybee P.Babybee

Hi Sally,

Our pram bassinets are not designed for overnight sleeping and we recommend you monitor your little one regularly while napping in their pram.

Whilst there are no Australian Safety Standards for bassinet safe sleeping, we have been advised by industry experts (Red Nose and IMPAA) that even with full mesh sides and an aerated base, they would never approve a pram bassinet as a safe sleeping environment.

Pram bassinets are much narrower and even with mesh sides that are breathable, when they press up against the mesh it can block their nose causing suffocation risk.

SIDS/Red Nose have more information on safe sleeping practices here: https://rednose.org.au/article/bassinettes

I hope that's helpful, if you had any more questions, feel free to send them through :)
Cheers,
Team Babybee

Tatiana V.asked

Rover

Hi! At what age the child can go in a pram, not a bassinet. Thanks

1 answer
Babybee
Babybee P.Babybee

Hi Tatiana!
In line with expert advice, we recommend bassinets for babies under 6 months old. They should remain in the bassinet until they can sit up and support their head and neck unaided (around 6 months). If their neck muscles aren't strong enough, the risk is that their head may fall forwards when they get tired and block their airways.

Have a look at this page below with a bit of extra info on the topic if you're interested:

Can the rover bassinet 2020 attachment fIt with the duo?

1 answer
Babybee
Babybee P.Babybee

Hi Boadicea,
Each of our models are their own unique design with virtually no compatibility between parts and accessories other than a few things like our mosquito net, Cool Gel Seat liner and blankets. So the ROVER 2020 bassinet and any other ROVER attachments will not be able to fit onto the DUO.
Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are here to help.

Hi there! The new 2020 Rover has a taller seat to ensure tall toddlers will fit comfortably up to at least 4 years. We do have lots more online resources and videos we can send you so please feel free to email our support team at [email protected] if you'd like any further info. We're here to help!

Hi Adriana,
Absolutely! All our prams are third party tested and pass AS/NZS2088:2013 standards for safety and durability. We go beyond this with internal testing and a Quality Control team who inspect each individual pram before boxing rather than the industry practice of spot-checking boxed prams.

Hey There!
We unfortunately have not tested this exact car with the 3rd row of seat, however we do know that it fits in the Mazda 2 boot with seat attached.

Can the Babybee Rover 2020 have the seat and bassinet attached at the same time? E.g. New born in the bassinet and 2 year old in the seat upright.

The Rover can't but i’m pretty sure they have another model that can. I think it's call the the Duo and is a similar cost.

Babybee P.Babybee

Hi Monique,
The ROVER is a single pram only - if you are after a pram that can be set up as a single or double, we would suggest the DUO.

I have a small car. Hyundai i30. Will the baby bee rover fit into my hatchback boot? What are the dimensions folded?

1 answer
Jysi R.
Jysi R.

The best way is without the seat on, after a rough measurement it's about 75cms x 58cms the folded frame. So if you stood it up in the boot it would stand 75 high. The seat dimensions and all folding dimensions are on the babybee website and more specific. I used to use a steelcraft strider and it folds smaller than that pram, my sister has a Holden barina hatchback and could just fit a strider in.

I am thinking of buying a babybee rover 2107 model second hand. As they don’t have the bassinet we will need to buy separately. Just checking the 2020 model bassinet will fit into the 2017 mode? Also is it possible to change/ remove the hood? Eg take the hood off the bassinet to use for the pram when baby is older?

1 answer
Babybee
Babybee P.Babybee

Hi Lisa,
The 2020 Rover bassinet is compatible with the 2017 Rover frame, however the hood for the bassinet and seat are different so will be able to be interchanged.

Outwards facing as when it collapses the flat part of the seat needs to go against the frame :)
