    Anyone else in this situation? When bubs is born I will have new born, a just under two year old and a 3 year old. We have a limited range for this over here and if there is something in the UK that we can get, I have someone coming over who might be able to bring it for us in May

    just thinking out loud here, as i not sure what i'd go for, but have you thought of a double with a buggy board? i'm not sure how many doubles take them, but the prams that spring to mind are the phil and ted's, the icandy pear and the nipper 360.

    when this baby is born, our daughter will be 3 years 3 months, and she wont need a double, but we was thinking of getting a buggy board or a sit to stand for her, so she can ride on :D

    Wowsers Anna, you will be an even busier lady!! I have met quite a few families who have 3 under 3 so I don't understand why this gap in the market is not catered for. We have a double now which we may be able to attach a buggy board. From what I am told, they are good for short distances but not long ones. Hmmmmm I think that may be how we end up going though

    My girls have walked from a year and a half old, which has made it much easier for us, as we walk everywhere and go on buses etc, they were taught to hold onto the buggy.

    Your 3 year old will no doubt be walking by then? so you would just need a double buggy if you feel your 2 year old isn't quite ready for walking, or a pram and a buggy board (although I have never tried them for ours, but I have heard that they are good)

    Thank you for the links Kaci : )

    Ladyredlainey, my 2 year old walks now but he only lasts 20 mins or so. He can't manage walks for an hour or so. I can get a twin stroller for around the malls etc but I'm more worried about walking to playcentre and to the shops etc. We walk quite a bit so was looking for something for longer distances I guess.
