Help me find the impossible

I think I'm after the impossible but was hoping somebody might have come across: a lightweight stroller that could be suitable for a 6-10wk old baby (for an occasional nap during meals) and almost 2 toddler. It needs to be light and fold really small as it is for backpacking and when not in use would be attached via carabineer to a childs backpack.
We envisage having the baby in a front pack and the toddler in a backpack or walking but may need to be put in a stroller occasionally so it would be useful to just clip it to the backpack and put it up if necessary.
I have looked at the Mclaren's but they fold really long in that they'd knock your legs when it was attached to the backpack.
Has anybody got any ideas? I liked the look of this one but I'd like to see something before ordering it and they don't stock UK currently. quicksmartstroller

jampots do you think a 2 position recline would be ok to put a baby that young in to say eat at a restaurant?

Wot chuffed,the *2 year old* is going to carry it when the baby dosn't need it??!!

well obviously not completely ideal chuffed but unless you're thinking of putting baby in it at every meal time i think it would be ok. Certainly no worse than sitting her on a sofa/someone's lap.

The Quinny folds really small, but I don't know whether it reclines.

The quinny doesn't recline. just looked at it because that was the one i thought of as well.

What about keeping an eye out for something like this on Ebay - this one ended yesterday but I've seen them on there before

how about this ?
misdee linked to it earlier... i think she said it's in NZ, but they will ship to UK.

It also reclines, which the one you linked to in your original post doesn't.

What about this?

I've got one of thoe backpack strolelrs and they aren't that great as the two year old would really be too big for it, there legs would probably drag when you pushed it along in stroller mode. Also, you could not put a teeny baby in it. Their legs go through 'holes' much like a baby walker and there is no support.

I am constantly reminded by DH what a waste of money that purchase was

Thanks for the ideas, what a shame the quinny and the quicksmart don't have some sort of reclining seat.
I think I might have to visit toys-r-us to see how small some of these little strollers fold up.
Anybody else?
