Will soon be a proud (read tired) mother of two under two so am looking for a double buggy. Issue is I have a very small car boot (Citroen C1) and doubles seem to be huge! Any recommendations for a small double buggy? My daughter didn’t like to be worn so I’m a bit anxious that babywearing won’t be an option for us. TIA
I had trouble with this, and could only find one pram in a shop to actually look at look at. There's one side by side called Obaby Apollo twin (comes in lots of colours not too expensive) that was not too big once folded (I had to measure diagonally and depth to figure what would fit in my corsa) it's in mothercare, argos and lots of other places. I got a phil & teds dot in the end, it's an inline not sure by side and folds shorter so less wedging it in but it's quite heavy. I learned the hard way when we bought a pram and then found it didn't fit and had to sell it in son then spent hours browsing pram specifications.
Inlines tend to be smaller and easier to get through doors. Oyster max is pretty small. I've got a Phil and ted sport and it fitted in the boot of my kia rio. Alternatively what about a single pram with a buggy board?
Another vote for the Nipper 360 double! I had a Bugaboo Donkey at first which I absolutely loved, but DS1 got too heavy for it. The Nipper goes up to a really high weight limit and you can get an carrycot to go on it for tiny newborns. Also, their warranty is excellent, they repaired our 18month old pram free of charge within 10 days. It looks tiny when you put it up, but still vaguely fits our 4 year old that's the size of 6.5 year old!
Thank you for the recommendations so far, I will have a look at them this evening and yes looking at the dimensions is a good idea that I stupidly hadn’t thought of! I like the idea of the buggy boards but I’m worried my daughter won’t stand on one or will try and step off. I’ve seen seat ones but I don’t think they will work with the carrycot part of the pram. We have a lovely joolz pram we want to use but unfortunately it doesn’t become a double and daughter is definitely not old enough to not need one yet
Another vote for Out n About Nipper double, I have the v4 so seperate hoods. I had a new born and 2y3m old and it worked fab. It's still used now although she walks a lot more so her seat gets loaded up with school bags. Come Jan it will he used for 2 under 2 and it never misses a beat. I do truly love it.
Bought a P and T sport tandem for new baby who's not here yet. Finding it a bit awkward to fold and too heavy to lift in and out of car while heavily pregnant. Sort of wishing had got a dot instead. Uppababy Vista looks amazing if you can get second hand or justify the new cost. Wish I had got one for first baby.
I got a nipper 360 after asking a similar question on here (for a 20 month age gap) and I am only starting to use it regularly now the baby is nearly 6 months. I didn't like it when he was little but then I didn't get the carrycot as I couldn't justify the cost. I managed as i rarely went out on my own with both of them in the early months. I'm sure it would have been fine with the carrycot, although it doesn't fit through my door so have to assemble and buckle them in outside. I don't like the front/back doubles and find the nipper is generally fine for most trips I need to do.
The Phil and ted dot folds up quite compactly because you can fold the handle down and take all the wheels off easily so you're left with a lumpy rectangle instead of a weird uncompromising triangle shape.
