So, DC 2 due in the next week, and DS1 is 2.3. I'm planning to keep using the cameleon for DS and use a sling for the baby, but I'm thinking after a few months a buggy board might come on handy.
Has anyone directly compared the lascal maxi with the bugaboo wheeled board?
Bearing in mind that I already use the cam handle on fully extended, I can see its inevitable I'll end up kicking a buggy board so it'll only be for short trips... Would it be better to get the bugaboo board and walk to the side or the lascal which some people claim you can avoid kicking as you walk but which I imagine I'd kick from any angle as I have long legs
I have used both too, although at different times and only the bug one on a bug, the lascal on everything else. I find that I can walk with my feet under the lascal maxi, that really works for me. They both clip off equally easily. The bugaboo one is harder to clip up IMO but runs more smoothly wih no child on, ie I didn't feel I had to clip it up instantly whereas with the lascal ones the noise drives me instantly insane.
Re attaching. Both are easy to put on/take off, once the fittings are attached. However, I have just reminded myself of what a pita the lascal fittings are to put on...although, this isn't something that needs doing often so might be a non-issue.
The advantage of the lascal is that it can be used on more than one buggy whereas the bugaboo can only be used on the bugaboo so it depends on what you need it for.
