Doe anyone have any opinions on the followin double buggies....
I didn't want a 3 wheeler and I hate the Phil and Ted 'only one of my children deserves a view of the world' approach. We went for an Out and About Nipper which is fantastic. Incredibly light and reasonably narrow, can get into normal 'single' width shop doorways. Is amazingly easy to collapse and fold out too. A friend who loved her P&T's for first child has also bought one after seeing, and lifting, mine!
Out of your list there is no doubt that the Baby Jogger City Mini stands out for me as the best. However what do you use a pushchair for because the BJCM storage access is really poor and I got fed up of pushing individual tins through the tiny gaps. The Elite is much nicer and not much bigger. Top of my doubles list though would be the Mountain Buggy Duet followed by the B-Dual. But if you said you simply walk from a to b then the Phil and Teds are a good option. The Nipper 360 has a good reputation too. May I suggest you go and have a look at Best Buggy and try out the Pushchair Comparison tool. There is no perfect pushchair out there and which is right really depends on your situation. Just to affront even consider the Skate. It is awful. Impossible to lift up kerbs - and I do mean impossible - the toddler is hemmed in at the back and the M&P representative recommended my toddler went in the main seat and my six month old totally out of sight in the junior seat. I left the shop pretty fast after that!
I had my newborn in one a couple of times. She was a good weight tho 8lb 13, I think smaller would be a bit lost in it. If you can stretch to one of hos sheepskin liners I think it would make it more cozy for them.
