I get pains in my hands if putting alot of pressure on them as I get RSI.

Does anyone know which double buggy would be fairly easy on the hands to push?

Would also like one that is easy to put down, as not into faffy prams!

Nipper 360 or a baby jogger city mini gt.. almost any air tyre side by side will be reasonable to push too really (assuming not a massive weight difference between two children) so mountain buggies, tfk, air buggy mimi etc.

Tandems tend to be heavier to handle generally so it might be better to stick with side by sides if you have the space in your car/house/life.

Nipper 360 is a dream to push. I hated it as I missed my baby pram, the boys didn't like how reclined the seats were when upright and it was a struggle to get the seats back up after they were all the way down. But pushing 2 2.5year olds in anything else wasn't fun. There seemed no difference pushing it even when one boy was out walking. Fold down is easy too - though not particularly small.

New nipper has carrycots, improved seat position and is narrower, it was always a good option , now it's really good.

Thanks for that - will have a look.

Will be transporting a baby and a toddler.

The Nipper or if you can find one on Ebay, an Air Buggy Mimi.

I get RSI if I do a lot of keyboard work or similar (annoyingly - if I do an extended period of crochet). One I definitely DON'T recommend is the b-dual because that flared my hands and arms up so badly I had shooting pains flying down my arms right to the tips of my fingers. Was fine if I was getting it in and out of the car to pootle around a shopping centre or whatever - but for walking from the house, to the shops and baby groups and back with the girls it was killing me. Shame cos I bloody loved the seating options on it and the basket.
