    Hi guys, twinnies are nearly 23 months, and found out I'm expecting and thinking, will I be able to have them out of the pram? My first was out at 15 months as he hated it but with the twins I expected them to be safely locked up until they were 16! :haha:

    I can only imagine the imagie with me going out, a 4 year old, twins on reins, and pushing a pram? Lol.

    Anyway, how is everyone? I know most of you guys (with toddler twins) are on my Facebook but not announcing yet.

    Yay! First of all, congratulations!!!! I am so broody and OH doesn't want any more... Well, I am trying to be patient. How far along are you?

    My two are 20 months and I couldn't go anywhere without the pushchair, they do not obey and would run off in different directions. I guess another 6months or so until they follow instructions and stay by my side when out and about.

    Xx

    Thanks guys, it was a surprise!!! Not that we hadn't wanted more but just not yet. It's been a terrible pregnancy thus far, bleeding, now clots, so had scans and only one, hoping he/she holds on tight.

    But I just had that moment today when I thought, oh crap the twins will need out if the pram lol.

    I'm not sure his far I am, the scans won't be dated until later, think I'm 8 weeks tomorrow though, going by last scan.

    Huge congrats, what great news!! Xx

    In answer to your question, i only use the buggy if going somewhere where there's a lot of walking or a lot of people like a theme park or something, they walk holding my hand near enough everywhere now, they are 2y 10m. I would say I probably started doing this just before they hit 2.5 years old, so I reckon you won't be needing the buggy when baby comes along xx

    congratulations!!! (im soooooo jealous :haha:)

    We're hoping to ttc in the new year, so new baby will be born when twins are 2/2.5. The plan in my head is that the twins will stay in buggy and I'll wear baby, then once baby is a little older (and heavier!!) the twins will be nearer, if not, 3 and can walk.

    If we go anywhere where they'll be walking a long distance/long time I would most likely be with OH so we'll just take two buggies. We have the donkey, which we'll make a single and we have a foldup, umbrella type, double buggy which twibs can use if needed.

    Thanks everyone, I want to do lots of baby wearing, did with my first and hardly at all with the twins, but I can just see the image of wearing baby, double pram and then 4 year old running off!
