Ive just ordered a Mountain Buggy Duet in Chilli can't wait!
Am thinking of getting the bassinet attachment.
Just wondering if anyone has one? Is it a worthwhile purchase? how long did you use it for or how old was your before they out grew it?

We got the bassinet, DS didn't use it for a really long time but I think we got good use out of it because he would sleep in it during the day in the kitchen. I would un-attach it from the pram and put it on the table so he was close by during the day.

Considering you are due in winter, I would definitely be getting the bassinet. We had a different Mountain Buggy double when we had our 3rd and she was a winter baby and we got plenty of use out of it. I forget how old she was when we stopped using it but we definitely used it for quite a few months though a bigger baby might grow out of it sooner.

Yeah I was thinking with winter I'd prefer the baby to be facing me, just to try and shelter it a bit.

We got one for our single MB Urban for DS1, which we loved and used for 4 months including as a portacot when away overnight. It was in the shed in mint condition, so i couldnt justify another for our Duet.
We are using the Urban bassinet again for DS2 now and loving it again. using skate board for DS1, but when DS2outgrows bassinet, looking fwd to using the Duet. If i were you, i'd get the carrycot!!!

I had a swift, and a winter baby and never bothered with the bassinet. A dear friend bought us the sleeping bag foot muff thingo, and it's brilliant. Its a liner for summer and a sleeping bag for winter.
I never really had to worry about the whole face you thing as pretty much the minute there was motion DS was out for the count and would sleep for hours.

I really liked the basinette on my MB Urban Elite when DS2 was little. I bought one second hand, and sold it afterwards.

Thanks everyone. I will keep an eye out for me on gumtree or buy one new closer to when the baby is born.
