Buggy board advice

I'm expecting baby no 2 in January, when DS will be 3 years and 4 months. We do some long walks with the dog, I'm trying to wean him off taking the pushchair with us at the moment, but I think we will still want a buggy board for longer walks. I currently have a Britax B Mobile, used when DS was tiny (with the carry cot attachment) or for quick trips around town, and also a Phil & Teds Sport, which we bought 2nd hand when he was about a year old and has been brilliant, but I wouldn't use for a newborn as it doesn't parent-face. (We also don't have the seat to turn into into a tandem, the newborn cocoon etc as it was a 2nd hand bargain).

Is there such a thing as a buggy board that would fit both pushchairs, or is that hoping for too much? Is there such a thing as a universal one, or are they all different?

Check the lascal website - it has a handy thing that tells you whether their buggy board will fit your buggy

You really aren't going to want a buggy board for long walks. They make the buggy hard to manipulate and really heavy to push. I'd use a scooter and a scoot'n'pull rope instead....

Thanks teenage. He's getting a scooter for his 3rd birthday in 2 weeks, hopefully he will get the hang of it quite quickly (he's not the most coordinated boy!) But that's an option I'd not thought of. Can you pull them and push a pushchair at the same time, practically?

I looped the scoot'n'pull rope around the buggy handle and then pushed the buggy just fine. We only used it as a last resort when she was tired of scooting or if we were on a busy road and I couldn't trust her not to scoot off. I think we used our buggy board approximately five times before I got sick of it!!
