Is the carrycot suitable for overnight sleeping?
We recommend that the Apple carrycots are only used for occasional overnight sleeping and not as a substitute moses basket. The carrycots should be used in conjunction with a breathable mattress (sold separately). The Pear carrycots are not suitable for overnight use. The iCandy Peach Carrycots (main, upper and lower) can be used for overnight sleeping.

Both the Apple and Pear seat units are not recommended for use until the child is able to sit up unaided. This usually occurs around six months.
What do I use if my child has grown out of the carrycot before 6 months?
The iCandy Seat Units can be used with babies under 6 months only if they have outgrown their carrycot however they must be in the fully reclined position. When the baby can sit up unaided they can be placed in the other available positions.

I have a puncture in one of my iCandy Apple/Pear rear wheels, what can I do?
As punctures are not classed as manufacturing faults you can either repair it with a puncture repair kit or obtain a new inner tube that is 12inches by 1.75inches (standard inner tube size). These both can be purchased from either your local iCandy dealer or a hardware/bike shop. If you wish to purchase a new complete wheel you would need to go to a registered iCandy dealer who will be able to provide you with a recommended retail price.
I am going on holiday; do you manufacture a travel bag for the iCandy range?

How do I fit the Raincovers onto my iCandy?
pushchair rain cover:-
• Place the top of the rain cover over the hood of the pushchair so that the black ridges on the rain cover match the ridges on the hood.
• Pull the rain cover down so that the rain cover goes over and under the footrest.
• Attach the Velcro section found at the middle of the rain cover around the pushchair.
• Finally, attach the Velcro strip round the bottom of the pushchair.
Carrycot rain cover:-
• Like the pushchair rain cover it has ridges on the rain cover that match up to the ridges on the hood of the carrycot. Place the rain cover under the lip of the hood and pull over the hood so the ridges match up.
• On the sides of the rain cover there are holes to place the carrycot adaptors through. Place the adaptors through these holes.
• Pull rain cover over the rest of the carrycot
• Once over the lip of the carrycot the rain cover can be pulled right down to the bottom of the carrycot to protect the whole carrycot.
• On the top of the rain cover there is a Velcro flap, so when you want to carry the carrycot you can undo the Velcro and get to the handle on the hood.
When the rain covers first come out of the box they can be a bit creased and can be stiff to go onto either the seat unit or carrycot, so you might want to iron out the creases with a hair dryer or put them near a radiator.
I have purchased the iCandy Pear for toddler and newborn. I'm wanting to use it as a single pushchair, is this possible?
The iCandy Pear can be used as a single pushchair if you use the upper (blue) seat unit. It is only designed to be rearward facing but you can unscrew the adaptors and swap them round which will make the pushchair face forwards. This must be turned back when using the pip converter as this can invalidate the warranty as it hasn't been safety tested.
When can I use the jogger wheel attachment?
With the seat unit on the apple or when the pear is being used as a single pushchair without the PIP frame. (Not with the carrycot on the apple or with the PIP on the Pear)
