hiya, for any mummies out there that use a double buggy, i am looking for a little advice/reccomendations for my friend. she has asked me to help her find a double pram, she has a 13 month old and is expecting in january. we have looked at quite a few, and have narrowed it down to a few, she really likes the icandy pear, but is worried about it being too heavy, baby jogger city mini, but was worried about it being a side by side, and the first wheels city twin. we did also like the icandy peach but the back seat has to be reclined all the time, and the baby jogger city select, but she didnt like how long it felt. so if any ones has any recomendations or experience of these buggies i would much appreciate your input x
the first wheels one looks good but is so wide it doesnt go through doors, the babyjogger city mini does fit through 99% of doorways and is lovely and light easy to push, but depending on the weight of her toddler id be dubious about going with a side by side as the weight difference could throw off the balance of the pushchair,
i have a Graco Duo ( old one ) but its good not much longer than my old travel system tbh and considering im pushing a combined 60kg plus between my kids ontop of the weight of the pushchair i think its holding up well id like to try one of their newer ones.
the Icandy pear is heavy and needs to be taken down seperately so no good on buses and the seats are different sized which hasnt been improved with the Peach sadly but the peach is apparetly lighter although ive not experienced it. if i had the money id have gotten the Duette from M&P as i had the single travel system version of it ( Ultima ) and loved it, big but light for its size good basket space and the seats are so interchangable
Second the nipper 360 double. It fits through almost all doorways and is lighter than all of the umbrella strollers but far sturdier. It's very manoeuvrable and so easy to push, it almost glides along all by itself. The seats recline independently. I honestly don't have any complaints about this pushchair!
I tried out some of the tandems, including the P&T, but found them all very heavy to lift up curbs with the toddler in the front.
