DS will be 2.8yrs when bubs arrives and I think I'd like the option of wheeling them both around the shops - at least for the first couple of months.

I'm getting rid of my old pram as I'm not crazy about it (love n care adiva sport)

what I'd like is a stroller or smallish pram that DS can sit in but that I can also attach a baby capsule to

Later I'll use it as just a single pram for the new bubs and DS can walk or use the skateboard.

I'm hoping one of you lovely ladies will have some ideas!

cheers

The Strider Plus has a toddler seat and baby capsule attachments. Check out their website www.striderplus.com.au for specs

Othewise, Phil and Teds and Mountain Buggy have toddler/baby models as well.

Bugaboo Donkey?

It's not smallish or stroller like but have you looked at the Baby Jogger City Select?

The Joovy Caboose Might be suitable.

I would not touch the Strider Plus with a 10 foot pole! They are notorious for problems & are also hugely wide!

I'm pretty sure you can do that with the mountain buggy duet

I second the Baby Jogger City Select.
And agree with PPs about the Strider, everyone I know who got one got rid of it pretty quickly.

iCandy pram apple lets you flick between a single and double. I think the peach does the same. Not sure about the pear though. That's a set double.

I have just had this same dilemma!
I had a Bugaboo Donkey on layby for my almost 3 year old and my newborn. At the last minute I have changed my mind and gone with the Duet. You can still attatch the capsuke and have your toddler in the other seat, and it is just such an awesome pram. My DS is 102cm and 16kg and still fits well...
Plus DJ's has 15% off at the moment wink.gif
And the resale on MB's is fantastic. I figured with the $$ I saved from not getting the Donkey I can get a single pram as well if I wanted to (I'm not going to bother until DS stops riding) but I'd STILL be saving money haha!

Thanks so much for all the replies .. I really appreciate it!

I'll definitely be checking out the baby jogger city select and bugaboo donkey.

the joovy caboose sounds worth a look too - I hadn't heard of that one before.

Will let you know how I get on

Thanks again:)

Another vote for the Baby Jogger City Select from me. I have my newborn in it now and love it. The reason I went with this pram is its flexibility for when #2 comes along.

What about the baby jogger city mini double? I have the single and it is great, will probably be getting the double when #2 comes in September original.gif

Another Donkey vote here actually haha! I swapped when I went to get my layby out and got the Donkey instead and I LOVE it!!!

I just got the iCandy Pear for exactly the same reason - and the same age gap!  It can be both a single and a double, depending on what you want on a day to day basis.  So far it's great - not that I've used it with two kids yet though.  DD loves it and has been having a ball trying out the different seating arrangements and assigning different toys to play the role of 'Baby Brother'.

I have a BJ City Classic and I love it. I was looking at prams for 2 now and the issue with the BJ City Select is the height of the toddler. I tried my kid at 2,5 and he barely fitted (his head up to the canopy). He'll be a bit over 3 when his DB arrives, so beware of the BJCS if your toddler is big/older (otherwise I love the brand).

I'm considering the BJCM double GT and MB Duet..any insight on those? Thanks!

#19 and1makes309

Posted 17 April 2012 - 08:15 PM

@phagua - not sure if you're aware but apparently, you can move the canopy up. That's what hubby picked up when we went to check out the Select...

we put DS into the seat and it was touching his head and hubby said that we weren't getting the pram then...but lady at the shop said you can adjust and from memory, you get about another 5-10cms (but don't quote me on that!)....

@and1makes309

Thanks for the info! but I don't keep my hopes too high as in their website http://www.babyjogger.com/PDFs/Comparison_chart.pdf

the max head height is only 21 inches, while in the classic/elite is 26 inches


#21 and1makes309

Posted 19 April 2012 - 08:33 PM

@phagua - yeah, it's a lot smaller than the Elite......we have the Elite and love it!! But with the recalled toddler seat and #2 due later in year, we had to look at something else.
Definitely would have gone with Mini double but the handlebar is too wide for our front gate, so can't get it out.....

I saw the GT double over the weekend and I think it's great!! Just can't bear to part with another $900ish again!! It's in between the mini and Elite - 3 wheeler with all terrain wheels. Shame it has velcro on the viewing flaps, unlike the Elite which has the magnets....Have you seen it in the shops??

My 2 are 15 months apart and I love my ICandy Pear. I used it as a single with DD1 before DD2 was born. I didn't get the capsule though, just the bassinette attachment, and the seat. I find it really easy to manouver, but it does get a little heavy with groceries in the bottom and 2 kids, but I expect all double prams would have this issue.
They are just so cute too, and I have only ever seen 1 other ICandy in 8 months, and that was the apple.

I saw the GT this weekend, they measured it and was 77 cms at its widest. The handlebar is much better (adjustable and without the bar in the middle) and my 3yo fitted great with even room to grow. I'm considering buying it from USA, it's $580 plus about $170 delivery, still much less than the $900ish here.

My 3 year old fits fine in it and he is 101cms if that helps any. He doesn't really ride in it much anymore but will climb in and out so I have the seat on half the time.

OP I love my BJ City Select, it's an awesome pram and does everything I want. It also has a huge basket which is great as I hate to use trolleys with kids. I can fit probably 4-5 packed bags in the bottom

The Pear can be used as a single or a double. But please don't buy one - it's awful! It is soooo hard to steer. It has these double stroller wheels at the front that get stuck all the time and makes it so hard to change direction or to get moving again if you stop somewhere. Especially if you are using it in double mode. I can't wait to get rid of mine. It cost a hideous amount of money too - you could do much better for the price.
