    I have BJSC, I have a capsule so I use that. I didn't feel comfortable putting DD in the normal seat even on occasion. I have just started putting her in it occasionally now she is 3 months but she still looks way to small for it, she is a big bubs too 6.5kg.

    My sister in law had this pram for her twins. She only used it for six months but with the maxi cosi car seats. She has now sold it and has a city mini double. She said they were too squashed in the city select in the normal seats.

    can the city mini double go through a door??
    I thought i would not be able to go to coles/woolworth and pay money on a counter with the side by side pram ...

    My sis in law is in the uk do her side by side fits through. Have u looked up reviews online. Also go into the store and measure the width and them measure the width of the checkout where u normally would shop.

    It's a tough call. R there twin review sites?

    I think also u might want to consider a side by side where you can see them too.

    I'm still finding my 8.5kg 9month old too small for the BJCS seats - but I haven't got a pram liner - and am still using our maxi cosi capsule attached to it.

    I love my city mini (not double) and would consider a double if my eldest was a bit younger - they are great prams.

    Have you looked at the bugaboo donkey?

    Hi there I love my bjcs but bub would have been too small for the normal seat until atleast 5 kgs I think and even then only occasionally.

    I did buy both the bassinet and the capsule as she is the first of three planned children do we figured we'd get the use out of them. I did find them both worth the cost but would say we got sooooo much use out of the bassinet surprisingly because whenever we went away or even just all day/evening at in laws or friends houses it made a fantastic cot!!! We just pulled the bassinet off the pram and put it under the table or in another room.

    The side by side double goes through a standard door, ie it's the same width as a wheel chair. So where ever they can access you can too.

    This is great careermum... so a bassinet seems to be the way forward... It is around 129 at baby bunting.. so it should be worth until they grow up to the normal BJCS seats...
