    Default Another pram thread- Help please!

    Hiya!

    So i need some pram advice/thoughts. I will be needing a double soon, however it won't be for normal everyday use. I have a bugaboo bee+ that lives in the boot of my car and my DS will be 2.5 when newbie arrives, for shopping and most trips out I will either have DS in the pram and wear newbie or newbie in the bee and DS can walk.

    I do however need a good double as we have a kelpie and I have to walk around 5ks a day, not always on footpaths etc, so it needs to be pretty sturdy, not a double umbrella type thing.

    I want newbie to be able to face me and DS to be able to face out. I am strongly considering both the Baby jogger city select and the bugaboo donkey. I am leaning towards the donkey as I think side by side will be better than tandem for long walks and the length of the select could be an issue for rough terrain over the width of the donkey.

    I would prefer it be a double that can convert to a single as I won't always have both kids, hence those two being my first options, however I suppose it is not essential as I also have an old phil and teds sport that I use for walking with DS now.

    Is there anything else out there that can have one face in and one face out? Size is not an issue, as I just won't be taking this pram into shopping centres and the like. If I have too though, I have a seven seat captiva (extra seats never up lol) so I have a fair amount of boot space.

    I am not sure if the strider plus can have kiddies facing different ways but even if it does- that's out! Had one and hated it.

    Thanks in advance haha

    Or a mountain buggy duo - though its a double not a convertible. But you have baby facing you and toddler facing forward.

    I have decided I am happy with the permanent double thing, because if I only have one kid I'll use the phil and teds I have now. Not into the icandy, I'm not sure why. lol. Am checking out the Mountain Buggy now. I really like the baby jogger city mini double, but can't have newbie face me

    The ABC Designs Zoom tandem. I haven't taken it hiking but had it on mums acreage and was good.
    It's a beast of a pram that I have decided needs a killer sound system and hydraulics

    It's a limo style and had multiple ways of seating

    If you want newbie to face you your options are limited for a side by side 4wd. Donkey and the love n care twingo.

    Eta I have the mountain buggy duo you can reverse for newbie but only as long as they can stay in the bassinet which you have to buy separately if your happy with this option there are a few others that do a side by side with a reversible option for a bassinet only.

    I think you can get a bassinet so hubs can rear face for the baby jogger city mini. You can also get a capsule adaptor too. Mountain buggy has a new thing so you can rear face hubs to 9 kg. They also have a shopping bag called a Joey to use for one child. Look at the website
