Were not were just getting a buggy board. My son will be 3 jjst after the baby is born BUT hasnt used a pram since he was about 2 years 3-4 months which will be the age of your toddler when baby arrives. He hates being stuck in the pram and loves to walk xx
Ooooo clever! I have just bought a City Select Double for the same reason, its a single buggy that you can add an extra seat too, my daughter will be about 17months old when this one comes along so knew I had to get something. I didn't want the double width if I could help it or the ones where one sits under the other as some of the time I will only have one baby and didn't see the point of pushing a heavier pram with only one baby in. Also I am not that good at steering nevermind something thats potentially double the width. This option seems a very good idea!
im so not sure whether i will need a double buggy or not yet lol. My youngest will be nearly 2 when babys born but has been walking for over a month already and is steady on her feet, i still use her buggy everyday just to make my life easier but i also have the car so its not like i go great distances with her in the buggy, just walking between shops or around the market or shopping centre so i dont think i will need one. Im thinking that, if anything, a buggy board would do for me as well as having reins on her to keep hold of her if she is walking. I dont see the point in buying a double if im only really gonna get a few months out of it then need to buy a single again anyway.
see i know my LO is a very adventurous little monkey that loves to run away he's a confident walker i'm just not confident that he'll stay on the buggy board he'd just jump and run lol and sometimes i'd want him strapped in for days where i need to catch an appointment, which is why i thought this looked ideal. It's light enough just to be used when i need it and can be folded in when he walks.
The only downside is that it doesn't fit on my pram (obaby zezu) that i used for my 1st but i'm thinking i could advertise it on fb sites for 'swaps' and get something that complys.
My son will be 2 when this baby comes and if my nephew is anything to go by, we may well still need a buggy for him at times. I am lucky that I will have the option of having my sister's Phil & Ted which she says is great.
the other option is that you push the older child in a buggy and have the baby strapped to you in a baby carrier if its not going to be an everyday thing (or even if it is if youre ok with that) Thats the other way i was looking at it, if for some reason i dont have the car and need to walk my oldest to school i could still manage by putting baby in my Tomy baby carrier(on front for baby, back for when its older), put 2 year old in buggy and off i go lol x still might even manage to take the dog as well lol x
