I've had the pram for ages and love it. I'm only just starting to experiment with different configurations now my boys are over one. I've always had them both face me as they were happy and it's most easy to recline them and sit them back up independently.

They really are still happy facing me, but I'm starting to feel bad for twin one who is always at the bottom. (oh and I've tried swapping them but it was so funny to see how unsettled they were in opposite positions lol). So both forward facing isn't great as I need them to recline still for bottles and sleeps. Both facing each other has been ok, but wanting to try bottom seat facing out and to seat facing me, only problem is the seats really wedge in against each other, there is no way I could recline them, what am I doing wrong? Do both the sun canopysneed to be in the lower position? At the moment I have one on the taller section incase my three year old uses the pram.

Also for those with the scooter board, do you find it ok using it with the top seat facing out? I've only used it facing me, but the twins now just kick ds. Do you have the handle fully extended or lowered?

Thanks, I've had the pram over six months but Feel I still need to have a really good play with it.

If you've got the bottom chair facing frontwards and the top facing you then, yes, the bottom hair needs to have the canopy in the lowest position and no, you can't recline the chairs. You can only recline them both at once with the seats both facing you (as you know) or facing each other provided you lie the top one back first. I've never used the pram with the skateboard so can't answer that part of your question.
