Not wanting to spoil it but the bugaboo is HUGE! It won't be easy to get into shop ailses etc. Just a well meant warning.

I'm not sure if its bigger than the one I think I'm getting (the duowalker), it kind of looks similar

I encountered one the other day in Waitrose and though their aisles are not narrow, I couldn't get past it. Two Mountain Buggy duets would have fit past each other no problem One of those is over 10cm narrower than the Bugaboo.

I agree! We have been through the good and bad points of each one numerous times. Its mind boggling. The Bugaboo is only 14cm wider than a standard configuration and we tested the one in the shop by pushing it through several doors

I decided I wanted to see both babies alongside each other from birth and to be able to turn them around to see the world once they were a bit bigger. I also wanted something sturdy for pushing around the farm as well as being suitable for everywhere else. Its personal choice really.

Its true, and I don't think there is one buggy good for everyone, I mean a "perfect" one, if there was we would all buy it like a shot. I think its about finding one thats near enough perfect for your needs.

I'm not posh enough to shop in waitrose so i'll be fine lol In all seriousness i think the buggy that is right for each person is for different reasons, for me having them side by side in decent size carrycots through out the winter when they get here is what is important for me. Can't wait to start buying on friday!!

It is wide, but for me, I wanted to face both my babies, for as long as poss. This was the only pram that did this. Parent facing is sooooo important when they're small. Only turned them forward facing a few months ago, as the big wide world was much more appealing than Mummy! I would have had them parent facing forever if I could!!!

Another big plus for us was that it turns into a single. We are currently ttc again, and will be able to continue to use the donkey in single mode. So hopefully will get a good 4/5 years use out of it.

We decided to go with 1 stroller that would hold carriers and then transform into a normal stroller. If I had to do it again, i would have bought a cheap frame stroller to hold the carriers, then bought a normal stroller once they were to big for carriers. I would recommend doing that. It will save a lot of headache, and when they are in their carriers, all you need is the frame stroller.
