My oh's mum is getting us a icandy double for when bubbas here.
I thought it would take a buggy board but when we ordered it today she said it doesnt.
im now im a pickle as my daughter who is just over 1 will obviously be in the buggy and so will the newborn.
my son on the other hand will have to walk everywhere, at just over 3.
He is a HANDFUL out of the pushchair, if he cant walk were he wants to walk he flops on the floor and refuses to move or kicks and screams!.
Im going to buy reins but if he cant walk were he wants hes gna go mad.
Thats why we put him in the buggy if were food shopping etc as he cant be trusted around town without the buggy.
in the park etc hes fine as he can run of if he wants.
how can i stop him being a spoilt bum in 4 months time so hes good at walking round town!?
what would people doo?
Perhaps you could use a baby wrap for the newborn and put your toddler in the push hair with your one year old ? I think that would be easier then trying to run after him while pushing the pram. Good luck
I think it's important to know how much you can handle and go according to that. With three lo's in tow, I would see no problem having a four year old in a buggy , especially if it means it will keep him safe and from running off in the road. Less stressful places like a park could be a place where it is easier to train him to walk alongside you. A wrap may be a worthwhile investment for those early days if the mei tai doesn't work. It saved my life when I had my third and my older two were much older than yours will be Also you could always have it with you so if you want your eldest to walk for a bit you can try it, but if it's getting too tricky, put him in the buggy and carry your newborn I dunno, but I think that's what I would try
Having said all that , Blah11 is right ... A few months makes a huge difference sometimes !
I have had a double buggy with my eldest on a buggy board and its a killer, especially uphill! Its such a relief now they are older, although the buggy board is on the single now and its still heavy.
Get him some funky reins, my 2 yr old has an elmo back pack with reins and I attach the strap on to the handle of the pushchair and he walks next to it holding onto the frame. Hoping to get rid of the buggy board for good soon - keep stubbing my toe on it.
thats a good idea actually! My son has a backpack in the shape of a turtle wich has a 'lead' kinda thing that clips onto the bag. You could probs attach it to the pushchair.
he loves wearing that bag so that might bribe him! lol
