I have been searching for months on this and still haven't found a solution... I am expecting baby number 4 in 3 weeks and number 3 has just turned 2 (last week) but seems to be tall for all the tandem prams I am looking at! She isn't even that tall... only 92cms but perhaps long bodied!
Can anyone recommend a good one? I need a tandem for when I am out and about at nap time for the toddler and for the school run to pick up the older 2... and I really don't want to look at side by side doubles due to restrictions on paths round where I live, plus getting round shops etc - I find it hard enough with a single pram!
Ideally I'd like a tandem with a big enough toddler seat for my 2 year old to nap in, with a carrycot/cocoon for the newborn (I already have a baby car seat so don't want to buy a full travel system).
I'm having a similar issue bumber, have hunted high and low but I'm not prepared to pay a fortune and my toddler wouldn't settle in the ones where she can't see in front of her as most have the carrycot part in front of her face.
I've found one on prams.net called chic 4 baby due, I was put off because they seem to have quite bad reviews (item not actually in stock/taking ages to dispatch etc...) but I sent them an email as have just received a responce saying it's defibitely in stock and would be dispatched within 3-5 wd.
It's a reasonable price too so think I'm just gonna have to bite the bullet.
My dd is tall and I'm thinking she would be able to rest her legs on the bottom part.
What about the uppababy vista? My friend had it for number 1 (so has the carrycot and seat already). Her dd is 1 and will be 18 months when number 2 arrives. The carry cot can go on the bottom with seat parent facing on top. It's not cheap but looks lovely. I really wish I'd got it instead of my pushchair now.
Out n about nipper v4 is a side by side which is under the width of a standard doorway and fits tall children. For tandem, as a PP has said the Baby Jogger select is the best for tall children (and is also a brilliant, versatile system)
I've been looking at the Hauck duett- but worry my toddler will be too big for the toddler seat which is underneath. Currently thinking of keeping my newborn in a sling and toddler in the regular buggy...am following other suggestions!
i know you said you wanted a tandem but i have this for my newborn (well shes weeks now) and my toddler whos 2 1/2 and its fantastic not many doors i cant fit through. I can get it on all buses no problems.
the colour inserts are reversable honestly read the reviews for it its fantastic.
I have the same issue - my toddler would like to be forward facing.
I have also looked at the chic 4 duo which looks great, but I can't find the seat measurements anywhere, apart from that fully reclined it is 70cm x 30cm - I've even messaged prams.net who sell it to ask them and had no response! I don't want to order it then find out its too small...
The uppa baby vista looks good, but pricey! I might have to hunt around for a second hand one. Can you tell me - do they all convert from a single to a double or do I need to be looking for a specific one?
