Best Pram for Twins??


i have started to look at twin prams and finding it quite difficult!....

i went into John Lewis yesterday and LOVED the icandy Peach....the only thing that put me off (apart from the price) was the fact that once its all folded down to go in the boot of your car you then have to find space for two BIG carrycots which dont fold at all........

i then looked at the icandy Pear but i'm unsure.....

the prams where the twins are side by side worry me as i dont think they will fit through many doors!

any tips??

xx

My friend has the pear. She liked it when they were small but she said its too much to push now..
But I say the same thing about mine and I have a cosatto you2.. Its hard to push because they get heavier, I wanted the pear but the price was just too much for me..

OHHH I did so much research, lol. Decided on the Peach twin. Have a look firstly at the below, it tells you about the pros and cons between the peach and pear:

My friend has the Out n About Nipper Double 360 and loves it, I just had a real issues with the side by side thing but she said it isn't too bad.

Found these sites too, not sure if they will help you:

i have the peach twin and love it. I only use the carry cots when walking and use the maxicosis if i go in the car that way you don'y have to cram them in. My girls are 3 months and have actually been in the proper seats twice and they were very well supported. hths xx

I had the Mamas and Papas Duette initially. The car seats clip on the frame which is great, but the seat units were bulky and so I only really used it with the car seats when out and about. Now the boys have outgrown the car seats I have the Out & About Nipper 360 which I love! Its side by side but is much more maneouverable than the Duette and is so much lighter which is great as the boys are getting heavy now!
I was really worried about getting it through doors, but it really hasn't been a problem so far x

At the time of year I'm due it will be summer before I am organised enough to take 3 kids out so I'm buying a lie flat buggy (nipper 360)

Hi didnt like any of the icandy buggys or prams and anyone ive spoken to who had one said their twins outgrew them way quicker than they should i didnt like the fact you couldnt see both babies in the carrycots, i bought the jane twin two and 2 matrix cup car seats and my boys are 1 next week and still in them , the matrix cup car seats are seats for the car but when you take your sleeping babies out and clip the car seat top the buggy they fold completely flat and are pram tops/carrycots defo made my life easier and still does, i also bought the firstwheels city twin and carrycots for the house as moses baskets in the sitting room wouldnt have been safe as i have atoddler too who could have knocked over moses baskets but couldnt knock over the pram both are brill and id recomend them both the firstwheels is super easy to push can do it one handed and jane is great it should do them till theyre 3.hth
