Tandem Buggy Advice

Have DD who is 2y 4mo and DS who is 5 weeks. Was carrying him in the sling, and her in her Graco pushchair, but think carrying DS in a sling contributed to the hideous mastitis/blocked duct I've been suffering from

So, we are thinking about getting a tandem buggy so we can have them both in the pushchair. They're very expensive, so don't want to make the wrong choice. Anyone got any favourite models? Phil and Teds any good?

Please let me know! Thanks.

Hi. I've got DS, who's 2y 6mo and DD who's 10 weeks. My son still naps in the afternoons and we walk a lot, so I opted for a second hand Phil n Teds. In comparison with my previous 3 wheeler, a 360 nipper, it's a lot heavier and more difficult to manoeuvre. However, the benefits of having a double buggy outweigh any negatives. Plus, once I've convinced my son to walk everywhere, I've got a buggy with a good residual value to sell on. Let me know if you have any specific questions, and congrats!
