Double Shopping Tomorrow

Me again (it's late here and I'm trying to stay awake whilst feeding Ds)

Tomorrow I'm off shopping for the double. I think I'm down to:

Icandy peach 2
Oyster max (will have to be bought on eBay and shipped over so purchased unseen)
Mountain buggy duet
Phil and teds navigator or dot.


I have dd (2.5 and 14kg) and Ds (6m and 9+kg), walk everywhere, take trains with a large platform/station gap twice a week) and live at the bottom of a bastard hill with lots of uneven pavements and high kerbs. Doesn't need to fit in a car or be closed up.

Which would you pick in my shoes?

If DD doesn't nap in the buggy/need a recline, I would look at the Uppababy Vista with rumble seat too x

I think "Does your 2.5 year old nap" is the critical question. Maybe combined with "Do you ever want another child?"

If DD doesnt nap then I would get the Oyster Max or the PB2. But I would rather you didnt buy unseen.....I think you need to be 100% sure about what the Oyster Max does, the limitations, quality etc etc before buying. Its a great choice for an older toddler and baby, you just need to be sure of what you are buying because theres more options than the PB2. PM me if you want.
The Vista with Rumble seat is a good option however the weight limit of quickly creeps up on you and I wouldn't trust it with any more.

Thanks Tiggy, I'll take you up on the offer of a PM!

DD rarely naps now. Sometimes but not often (a handful of times a month) and rarely in the pram unless she is exhausted.
