    Im debating wheather or not to look into double prams or just look into newborn prams. y baby is due around 2 weeks b4 my sons 3rd birthday! i was looking at phil and teds prams etc and some say they fit form 0-5 years. Are u putting ur 2/3 yr old in a pram or wil they just walk? Myne i should just look into a step that attaches to the pram.

    I think it depends on how much walking about you do, and how much you use a stroller at present with your child. I have a 4 yr old, 2 yr old, and of course one on the way, and while I thought about getting a double, decided that I won't. If more things were in walking distance to my house, then I for sure would, but as it is, I very rarely end up putting my kids in a stroller now.

    yepo i have to say that we drive most places. If i do go out he walks bside or in a trolley when shopping! Im just scared with 2 that he mite run off and i wont be able to catch him.

    I keep thinking that i dont see many 3 yr olds in prams? is that wrong or have i not looked properly?

    Good and it willl be better i think because the child can stand in front of the handle on the icandy so you don't have to lean over-if you get me??

    My daughters going to be 3 in November and the baby is due in March, I wont be purchasing a double buggy as Ive done this once already when second was born first was only 14months so I NEEDED a double, but I think a 3 year old is quite capable of walking and like you said you can always buy a buggy board....10days before my 2nd birthday my mum had twins and i walked everywhere from then onwards, kids these days are spoilt lol (god i sound more like my mother everyday *scary thought*), hope this helps x

    Oh i have been having this issue for ages!! i think i have made up my mind to get a pram for the baby and buggy board for my son he will be 2 and half when baby is born. i was looking at the phil and teds pushchair and it is very expensive but also practical....think i will just go for the pram and hope he gets used to walking/buggy board x

    If you go onto Lascal.co.uk it tell you which prams/pushchairs are compatible with their buggyboards and shows you the best way to fit it.

    I will have an almost 4 year old and a just 2 year old when Evie arrives, so I have got a buggyboard but also a lightweight Silver Cross pop twin pushchair. I figure that for short trips I will use the buggyboard, but for those epic shopping trips/long walks I will use the twin. xx

    I had a double with my eldest and second (21/2 year gap) and used it for a bit. But found it a pain in the arse to be honest in the end. This time, my lo will be 3 a couple of weeks after baby's born (just like you, porkpie!) so I'm gonna try without. I did find last time I was carrying baby in a sling and toddler went in the stroller for about the first 6 weeks anyway, so that worked quite well for me.
    Whatever I do I'll be thinking the other way would've been better anyway, so decided to go for cheapest option!!
