    Ds#1 stopped when he was 4.

    Ds#2 turned 3 in june and still very much needs the pram. He bolts, and he has vestibular problems, so he constantly walks into things/people/displays, and gets hurt. Its a safety thing and a sanity thing, i will gladly keep him innthe pram past 4 if need be. my guy..such a handful <3

    My little man didn't start to walk until just at the end of 21 months. Since then he hasn't wanted to go in his pram and will only sit in a chair to eat. He does things when he wants too. He's just given up his dummy of his own accord, he's two and a half.
    I won't complain about it as I know he will do it when he can. If he gets tired he asks for a rest and a drink, then we know to sit him down for a rest and a snooze.

    I found by about 3.5, he became too difficult with the pram. I would try and take him on exercise type walks and he would insist on walking, or pushing it, or standing in front of it or doing something annoying.

    So we completely abandoned it around that age.

    I think the last time DS was in the pram was when he was between 3.5 and 4. I went to GOMA with 2 other fabulous hubbers and on the way back to the car he fell over and scrapped his knee. I already had DD in a sling and I had bought the pram for back up so a quick flick of the reversable hood and removal of the front bar and he was good to go. The only issue was he was about 5 kg over teh weight limit for the pram.

    Was going to post this exact same thread on here! Seriously considering trading the bugaboo for a P&T because DD1 (almost 3) gets tired, falls to the ground and refuses to walk and with the baby bag over the handlebars there is no space on the skateboard. Just not sure if it's worth it?

    How often do you need a double? Would a cheap double stroller do the occasions you need it?

    Or something like an ergo carrier for the baby & dd1 in the pram?

    I have a strider plus for my 3y9m & 5 month old and I see value in it, I use it as a double a few times a week.

    I have the P&T verve 4wd. Suits a heavier toddler and a bubba, and can turn into a single pram when toddler grows out of it. I love it.
