City Select for 3

We will have 5yo, 2.5yo and a newborn in May. Just got a City Select stroller with a bassinet and a second seat.
This will sort the younger 2 if 2.5yo decides to go for a ride.
Now, I was also thinking of a glider board so that our 5yo can hop onto it if she is tired. But keep reading that it's uncomfortable for a parent. What are your experiences and any specific glider board recommendation that will for city select?

Unless there are additional needs or you don’t have a car and walk everywhere I’d be getting the five year old to walk. Manoeuvring a pram with three kids would be really difficult. Don’t the boards have a weight limit?

Agree with PP. If your 5 year old has no health issues then walking is best.
I have pushed a City Select with the seat and the bassinet and a skate board thing and it was very heavy and the child on the board was just 3.

I have a city select with the two seats and the glider board- only 2 kids though. The older one would have a choice of board or seat at times. And I agree with PP that it can be tricky to manouvre.
And it is heavy. I remember pushing the pram uphill once in the heat and calculating that with my two (who were 3.5yo and 6mo at the time but both huge) and the pram with 2 seats plus board was over 40kg.
20+kg 3yo, 10kg 6 month old, 12.5kg pram (single weight), plus second seat and the board (and the baby bag with water bottles etc).
I have a friend with 3 girls and the same set up though (same pram plus glider) and for her it was a life saver.

I would bring a baby carrier (chuck it under the pram), then if the 5 year old gets tired you can carry the newborn for a while (assuming newborn can go in a normal seat).

I had a city select and decided against a glider. I saw other people with same setup and their body was pushed out at an angle since the glider took the foot space where the adult feet would go - like constantly walking uphill.
