Ds will be almost 3.5yrs when dc2 comes along. He doesn't like riding in the pushchair much anymore but easily gets tired so wondering if a buggy board would be a good idea. Is it worth bothering with at that age or do i just make him walk?!

Its your choice. At 3.5 he will be walking most of the time, but sometimes its handy to have something for him to hop onto. What pushchair would it be going onto?
But TBH I think you will find it more of a pain than anything else and you may wish to look at a Micro Scooter with Scooter tug as an option.

My son will be 3yrs 9months when baby arrives & I have bought a buggy board! Ds still uses his buggy quite a bit so I definitely wanted a non-walking option for him especially when we're in a rush to get somewhere!

I have used a single buggy with a buggy board since dd2 was born (dd1 was 2.9). Dd1 is nearly 4 and walks most of the time, but if it is a really long journey or if I need to get somewhere fast and if she is very tired then she hops on. I find she doesn't have much stamina for the scooter, but some children really take to them.

Thanks all. Am tempting swapping my buggy, but if i do keep the one i've got, its a babystyle oyster. i know they do their own buggy board which is meant to be good & folds out of the way when not in use. I guess i'm best to wait til much nearer the time & gauge what he wants to do.xx

My Dd2 will be the same age when Dc3 arrives and I'm going to get a buggy board. Had a 3 year age gap between Dd1 and Dd2 and I didn't have a buggy board, just made DD1 scoot everywhere but in retrospect we did have a lot of moaning on the way home after busy days out. This time I will have 4 x school runs a day to do (school and pre school) and can't be doing with dawdling.
