Hey - I am a bit new to all of this I have a little girl Brooke she is 20months and i am expecting another girl in 8 weeks (due 24th oct) and i was just wondering if anyone has been in the same boat when it comes to getting a double buggy.. i dont know whether to get one or not as i have kept my very beautiful pram from when brooke was smaller and i'd much rather use that but then what do i do about Brooke i dont think she is big enough for a buggy board and as we're due the end of october it will be getting quite cold.
My dd will be 20 months when this one comes along and although i have a lovely pram that i had with my ds, i don't think dd is old enough for a buggy board, nor do i fancy putting her on a seat on top of the pram in the middle of winter.
So i bought a pre-loved First Wheels City Twin from ebay. It has a carrycot attachment for baby, and best of all imo is the fact that the seats can be turned to either face you, or out at the world. I can't wait to try it out!!
My DS will be 21 months when baby comes along. I'm in a tizz too. If I get a cheap tandem, it might not be very easy to manoever or the front seat might not go back, it might be too heavy or difficult to get up curbs, and it might not fit into my car boot. We also have a small house so I need it to be quite compact. If we get those side by side buggy things, they won't fit in shop doors. Or any doors, really.
I'm really confused. So very interested in this thread.
My DS was 23 months when DS2 was born and I had a similar swither ... eventually got a double Out'n'About Nipper 360 - best money I ever spent! It's extremely lightweight and easy to steer, and even though its a side-by-side it fits through pretty much all doorways. Couldn't recommend it highly enough! And the wheels pop on and off very easily if car boot space is tight.
I've just ordered a Phil and Teds Vibe for when DS2 arrives in 9 weeks. The winter weather was part of the reason I've done that rather than stick with the single buggy we had, plus the fact that a buggy board doesn't work with it.
One good thing about the Phil and Teds is that it can easily convert back to a single if DS1 decides he wants to walk everywhere, and also the resale value on ebay is fantastic, so hopefully it shouldn't actually cost us very much overall if we keep it in good nick.
