Add the optionan I don't have it because it's not practical for me. No storage space, too flimsy, I don't like the position.

Trendy does not equate to safe. For a shopping stroller in a metro area it could work safely. It’s not well rated for safety.

Babies should not wear coats in any car seat anyway! Very dangerous if there’s a crash, the coat compresses so the buckle is loose and the baby is not protected.

It's never even occurred to me to get something so impractical. There's no way I would invest that much money in something with such short lived usefulness.

I don't have it. Never considered it because we don't have a car. Still wouldn't buy it because it's too short term for the money.

Babies really shouldn’t wear coats in any car seat. In car seat should use blankets or a cover. I also put a thin Sherpa sweatshirt in car seat for extra warmth.
Regular strollers should work with coat.

I don’t have
I thought it was too much money to spend on something I’d use one year. And it didn’t suit my needs: no basket, can’t go in shopping cart easily. And I try to have my baby in a car seat as little as possible. Especially over 3 months.
for me a snap no go for the car was fine and a regular carriage for everything else.

Have it, love it, and seem to be in the majority here. I am NOT one to go along with the trends. Just love it for the practicality, versatility, and ease of use.
Mine is slightly cracked by the handle so debating if I should storage or sell it. If anyone is looking to get one secondhand you can message me.

I have no need for one. My car seat gets used maybe twice a week and it stays in the car. When I travel I check it in with my baggage and use a regular stroller with a nice big basket through the airport.

Just today I to,d my husband iyh next baby we are getting one. Where I live I need to take a taxi anywhere I go. It’s a crazy shlep to take along a stroller and a car seat. Hide the car seat somewhere and then when you go back home go back to pick it up..... ugh.
Introduce Donna. You don’t have to wake the baby when you arrive, no transfer, no hastle. Bliss

You don’t have to hide a car seat anywhere with the old Snap and go’s like Graco and Maxi Cosi strollers. Or wake the baby either. Yes, it’s an extra step of getting the base out of the trunk, but many of us think that inconvenience outweighs the many inconveniences and safety issues of the Doona.

Are doonas rear facing or side facing?
I know that sounds strange, but my neighbor's doona seems to be side facing.
