I have dd 2 years and am expecting a new baby in the next few weeks. I was going to buy the phil & teds double buggy but the people in the shop demonstrated to me that my dd won't actually fit under the hood, when she is sitting in the seat above the baby in the lie-flat position. This means I won't be able to get the rain cover over etc.
Anyone else encountered this problem or had the people in the shop set it up wrong? DD is tall but not a giant. Seems extraordinary ...
I had the same problem DD2 is 2 1/2yo and 90cms tall (yes I measured her) she just about fits under the hood maybe with 2-3cm gap between the top and her head. TBH since I have had the P&T I have never had the raincover up in the double mode so it hasn't been a problem. DD2 walks a lot of the time so I love the fact it goes from double to single and I keep the extra seat in the boot just in case. It's a great option for us and I love it.
i saw a child in the vibe the other day and the seat on top of the newborn seemed tilted back and the child looked very uncomftable in it having to bring her neck up to see and it seemed they have added to much padding and it seemed cramped
i've just bought an e3 for my daughter and bubby(due dec) my daughter is 2.8m and is tall(she is too tall for her 9m-4y carseat) and she just fits under, her head does touch the hood butim hoping its not going to be too much of a problem,at least its only for a few months.
