toddler pram attachment

I have number 2 due in Jan and I am thinking of getting a toddler attachment for our old pram rather than going and buying a twin pram.
If any of you are aware of any manes of attachments that suit most prams (I have a steelcraft enigma) I would like to do some research and see what they look like.
I would prefer a sit down one as number one will only be 15 months. He started walking at 10 months though so I figure he will be ok at 15 months for a sit down attachment.
Any help would be appreciated.

I saw this online and thought this was a pretty good alternative to buying a P&T and also alternative to a skateboard attachment.

When DD2 was born I had a x-trail with toddler attachment and what a pain. They are very hard to move about as all the weight is over the front wheel, DD1 would turn around in the seat and wake/annoy DD2 and DD1 couldn't sleep in the attachment. I was Like u and thought DD would want to walk alot and would have outgrown the pram thing - but u forget the jealousy thing and how easily they tire and its good to have them tied in while shopping!!!! After 3 weeks we went and bought a P & T ( and I was so anti them ). DD1 is nearly 2 and still likes the option of a comfy seat and a nap in the pram. We currently have them the wrong way round so when DD1 wants to get in she just hops in the back.
I also saw a pram with a toddler attachment made to fit (it obviously wasn't meant for the pram) topple over with both kids inside.
If u don't want to go down the P&T's route can I suggest a sling for #2 until #1 is a little older.
But I'm afraid it is trial and error and until #2 arrives u really won't know what works.

You might find using a sling for the newborn for the first 6 months useful.
Then by the time you need the new baby to go in the pram your toddler might be ready for some sort of skateboard at the back. You can pick those up really cheaply from ebay.
You can get twin strollers pretty cheaply too.

I was also going to suggest what nessrose said. Only recently have I stopped slinging my second twin (while the other was in a single pram) and using a double pram. When I mean a sling, I don't mean one of those in front carrier type ones. You need one that the child can sit on your hip and the sling holds them there giving you two free hands. The front one kills your back by the time they are a few months old. I used the hip one until they were about 10kg without a drama at all.

we went for the phil and teds as we noted that mnay toddler seat attachments have specific adivise about not using them in a tantrum!! As Tali does not like her pram at times we didn't want a pram likley to tip over as many toddler attachment ones are prone to.
