hi, has anyone here got a triple buggy? we are looking at the peg perego, or joovy caboose - 3 in front of the other - I wont get through the school gate (or my front door) with a side by side! 2 yr old, and 2x1yr olds....a double plus sling is no longer working! any bright ideas?
oh and cant use a buggy board - not mobile enough for the school run sadly,
My 2 year old has a mobility problem and so cannot walk the entire way. I have been using the sling with one of the 1 yr olds, he is now getting too heavy for me. Hence needing a triple. 15 months between the babies.....
Joovy Caboose is quite hard to push. You need to put a bigger child on the front which means if you're walking along a pavement with drop kerbs you have to fight to keep the straight line. Good for your arm muscles though. Mind you any triple will be heavy. I'd say get one with big pump up tyres if you can as they are always easier to push.
Thanks Red - i've just found one on google called - familidoo, considers itself 'lightweight' if there is such a thing youtube video looks easier to push than the joovy...familidoo is shorter, but kids look more squashed together - which i suppose doesn't matter for a quick school run really....
thats the real problem, you can't go into a shop and have a go, like you can with normal pushchairs. I'll need it I guess for at least another 18 months till the 2 little ones are really confident to walk, then i can use a single or double...they all look like tanks!
I have yet to find one with big tyres - they all seem to be US only
I have two doubles... one fits through my front door - phil & teds, but not in my car, one fits in my car, but not through my door - city mini jogger double...
i can't use the buggy board as said child keeps trying to fall off it/jump off it...etc etc...i am also short and find it very hard to push pram with it on, so not sure the seat thingy for it will work - prob break my back
no sleeping in the pram we use for school runs, it only a 10 min walk, just little legs cant quite make it.
i'm leaning towards the familidoo at the mo, seems the best to go up and down kerbs....gah
It is hard work. I can't imagine a triple buggy!!! We are just a ten minute walk through the park too. I definitely think if you can't afford two then get the one you've mentioned. The side by side seats are hard work because of where the brakes are placed. They shut as you heave it over the step.
I had the t3 triple jogger. It's the exact same width as the baby jogger city mini double, with an added seat at the front. It's long, and doesn't fold very small but it's easy to push (I managed less than a week after a c section with 2 2-year-olds and a newborn). It's expensive though, but you can use it as a double too, and it has hundreds of little pockets
I love the look of the t3 triple, but it wont go through my front door so i'd have to lift all 3 out, stick them somewhere safe...fold and put in car boot - bit of a faff, especially if the bigger 3 are kicking off after school
so it needs to be one in front of the other, to be pushed into house so we can all get sorted.....what a faff!
