    Anyone got any inspiration? I don't have a clue what I'm looking for when it comes to prams!

    My daughter will be 2 years 8 months when baby arrives and she doesn't like walking much as it is already. Although I drive we walk most places and do shopping in town so really do need a double rather than use a buggy board. I prefer the ones where there's one above the other, rather than side by side.

    I'm not looking to spend a fortune as it may not be used for too long as a double. Any recommendations would be great, thanks :) xx

    My LO will be 2 years 7 months when this baby comes, I am just getting a sling/carrier and a single pushchair with a buggy board. use the sling if toddler is sat in pram, or if baby is in pram, toddler can stand on buggy board. I thought about a double buggy but it really isn't worth spending that amount on something that wone even get 6 months use out of x

    My first was 2yrs 6 months when my second was born.

    I just used a stroller for my eldest and a sling for my newborn.

    By the time my toddler was 3 they didn't need the stroller any more.

    My daughter wont walk anywhere, she just stands where she is and screams until she's picked up. It is impossible to get her to walk unless I literally drag her! I cant see that changing in the next few months either tbh. I thought maybe a cheap double would be handy as otherwise I can see us stuck in the house a lot and that would drive me crazy. I've thought of using a sling but some days we can be out 4-5 hours and carrying baby in a sling for that long seems like a long time xx

    You can get a buggy board with a seat on, would she not use that? x

    I'll have two years four months between mine and am getting an oyster max tandem. If my lg walks more after a few months, it's not a waste as it can convert to a single. It's gorgeous looking and half the price of an icandy x

    I really like the look of that. Also like that it goes to a single too. What confuses me tho is do I need to buy everything separately? X

    Thanks for the link. It confuses me when they sell it all separately, knowing me I probably forget to buy a part of it haha. X

    I got a jogging one cause I'm a runner. I don't know if they have these where you live but the Bob double strollers are the best by far. Nothing compares.

    There is 16month between my boys. I originally had the uppa baby vista 2015 but hated it. Was to heavy and ended up swapping when youngest was 3 month old. I have the out and about nipper double which I absolutely love. Only downside is you can't use it as a single. But I have a single with buggy board for the days I'm with my hubby x
