If I want a parent-facing pushchair that could accommodate two DC...
I've posted for advice before - expecting our first and would like a parent-facing pushchair, but all being well we'd like to have a second relatively soon and wanted a pushchair that could see us through two DC.
Are there prams other than iCandy that do both these things - i.e. parent-facing and convertible to accommodate a second DC?
Do you mean that both seats can parent face at the same time? If you don't, then the uppababy vista is parent facing in single mode and takes a second seat, the oyster max does, the baby jogger select.
Bugaboo donkey expands sideways to take a second and I think they can both sit parent facing?
I have a Britax B-Dual. The top can face either direction (and is very easily swapped round) and can also be swapped with a compatible car seat. The underneath seat is fixed but very useful for shopping!
Sorry posted too soon. It can also be used as a single pushchair and has carrycot option, various seating positions and can use adapters to fit a car seat on. The hoods are lovely and deep for naps times or sunny days with a lovely big basket underneath for shopping/junk.
I'm also looking into this - here's a list of the ones I've come across that haven't already been mentioned:
- Babystyle Oyster Max - Babystyle Egg - Phil and Teds Vibe - Mothercare Genie - Hauck Duett 2 - Jane Twone - Obaby Zezu - Graco Trekko Duo - Jools Geo
However, I'd advise you to look at pictures of all the 2 seat configurations. Even though they can all do it, some can only do it in ways that I'd never want to use, so I've ruled out a fair few (including the iCandy) on that basis.
I used icandy before, but it was at a time when I didn't drive. Now it's different because I have a car now so whilst I love the icandy Tandem, it's not good for me because no modal folds down quickly with seats attached. I can't be doing with the faff of dismantleing both seats and the frame before collapsing the actual buggy, then doing it in reverse to get it back up and going again. Shame as I like to stick with what I know.
