I will have a 16/17 month old toddler when my newborn arrives and am hoping to have a third child. Therefore, I want a buggy that will potentially be able to take all three children. However, I am a bit worried about how heavy the pram would be with two or three children.

Can anyone advise from their experience?

Just to add that the third child wouldn't necessarily be on the buggy board very much but no guarantee - the very youngest ages realistically that all three would be, would be: newborn, 12 months and 19 months.

*29 months, not 19 months. blush

I had an uppababy 2010.

I had 25 months between my 2 and found pushing it with rumble seat or buggy board very easy. It lifted easily over curbs and was no problem to get on and off trains.

That is really reassuring to know. Thank you.

I've used it with a newborn in the bassinet low down at the front, my 2 year old niece in the seat and my 21 month old DS on the board. And for about 4 months after. DS heavy, much chunkier than his absolutely averaged sided cousin hence the configuration despite age.

Handled it really well considering. Felt sturdy. Curbs always interesting with a toddler on a board, but coped well.

Importantly, the basket underneath is BH enough to hold enough for 3 kids. the frame folds with the board on, and is easy to stride with, of that makes sense. Not tripping over the board.

It's obviously not light or compact, but coped admirably with 3!

It's also great for two..... Just in case the second changes your mind for number three!!!

Sized not sided

Big not BH

Disaster, sorry!!

That's really useful to hear Devon, thank you. I think I am going to go for it and order online. Whilst I am not convinced any pram will ever be exactly what I want, this one seems to cover most things and generally gets favourable reviews.
