    Okay well we dont have bub number 2 yet but we are not planing on getting a double buggy. Were getting one of these:

    http://www.urchin.co.uk/catalog/kids-travel-and-holiday/pushchairs-and-strollers/p_65400.html

    That way we can still use our existin buggy. I think doubles are good if you have twins, but otherwise one grows out of it to soon. This way the older one can use it when they feel tired, or you can fold it flat against the buggy when they want to walk.

    I've gone for the Phil and Teds because I wanted something I could easily put in the back of the car and that wouldn't take up too much space in my house (we have no storage space so it will be against the wall in the kitchen).

    the one you're getting looks really cool cat i don't think we have them over here tho, well i haven't seen any anyways haha... and i agree with yvanne they are the worst stupid inventions ever lol, i thought it would be better to get a one in front one in back rather than a side by side, but god was i wrong :? i hate the stupid thing and have only used it once for a test run with DD and my nephew :(

    Hi i looked into these as well and the people i have spoke to in the shop say that most people return them as they are rubbish, also my friend had her two yr old in it and was walking down the road the frame slipped and her son ended up in the road! :shock: :shock: Its a good idea but not safe.

    , it dont look very nice but its only the size of a single. and are better then the normal tandem as the baby at the back aint just looking at the back of the baby infrount as they are higher up and the back one lays completly flat but the front one dont which is a bumma, but Dior neer sleeps in the buggy at her age

    Kayleigh I bought mine far too early lol and it's been up Mils for a few weeks in storage! It's expensive but I'm glad I've gone for it. For the first few weeks Ella was here I hardly took her out as her pram was such a tank and a faff. I live in a terraced house so have to wheel the pram straight in, I can't leave it outside and my front door leads straight into the front room so it needs to be compact.

    Kina maybe you can clear up something for me...

    I like the look of Phil and Ted's but isn't it very restrictive for the child thats underneath eg they dont see much? And it looks cramped, what happens when the child grows? :?

    If not slating it, it's a possibility for me, just want help with my q's! :lol:

    I got this one on ebay. It folds down not too bad, I can get in the back of an audi (posted a pic of the same car as mine). Its nice, they both fit okay and its very nice for going out a walk but not too practical for the shops. I can get in a few shops but tend to plan my route and sometimes just end up taking the buggy and the baby carrier or the buggy and get Jessica to walk.

    Well thats what Im thinking, as it dosent really look like many of the twins/tandems are suitable from birth as they dont allow the baby to lie flat. Where as using the pod, I can attach it to the travel system so baby can lie flat in proper pram, while Noah can still look around. Great for as he gets older too, as he becomes more independant and wants to walk more, Ican fold it up, but if he gets tired and wants a rest, hey presto!

    Mum2boys what shop did you see it in? Iwant to see one in flesh before ordering and Ionly know if it online.
