    Default Does your 2yo use a pram?

    16 month old ds already likes to walk and will walk quite long distances. We only have 1 car with DH takes to work so we walk everywhere.

    He will be just 2 when our next babe comes along. I still have HEAPS of time to think about it but have been wondering if I'll need a double pram. I can get a buggy board for our pram (BJ City Elite) but I also plan to wear newbie.

    So, how much much does your 2yo walk vs. use the pram?

    The only time DS uses the pusher is when DP takes him to child care because it's a bit faster than letting him walk. We never use it otherwise and I would gladly get rid of it. I'd probably get a pram big enough for the 2yo to sit in and always take some sort of baby carrier so if the 2yo got really tired you could carry the baby and pop the 2y.o in the pram.

    My 2 yr olds never liked to walk, but I used a carrier and single pram until DS2 got too heavy (around 14 months) then I bought a double pram as DS1 (28 months) still wanted to walk at that time and did for another 1.5 years, in fact he still likes to sit in the pram at the shops @ nearly 5!

    Dd uses hers quite a bit...she still likes to walk heaps but still likes to sit down (and it's quicker that way sometimes!)

    Dd will be 2.5 when #2 arrives, personally I'm still getting a pram for her to sit in as well. She often likes to sleep when we are out so I know I will need it. I'm getting one that I can easily turn to one seat though if we are having a quick outing .

    ild get a double pram and a carrier if it was me, my 2yr old loves to walk to but sometimes surprises me and wants to be carried after a while which is just annoying when walking to the shops (half hr away) often she will walk by her self but sometimes just gets tired. i have a double pram which my ds and dd use sometimes and ill prob get a new baby carrier as well

    Yes. Not a lot now but we still need it, mainly to carry stuff in! It's handy on the train and if we go out for the day. He often had day sleeps in it too instead of In his bed.

    Default Re: Does your 2yo use a pram?

    Yep. DD is 26mths and we use a pram for:

    Shopping (if I'm spending hours at a mall then she'd get tired walking, plus it would be hard with her/ bags, etc.)

    Holidays (we're usually out all day when on holiday, so she naps in it as well as stays safe in countries with heaps of people / traffic, etc.)

    Walks (if I'm going walking with friends who also have toddlers then we tend to put them all in prams so that we can walk at a fast pace)

    Dd stopped going in her pram just before she turned 2. It made life very difficult because she was/is a runner. She would arch her back and scream if we attempted to put her in. I was pregnant with ds2 at the time which made it so hard.
    20 month old ds2 only goes in his when we're walking somewhere. We use a trolley for him.

    I got a Phil n teds with second seat for DS (will be 21 months when new bub arrives) and new bub but find I am still using it for dd2 who is almost 4 and DS.

    You might find that even though your DS likes to walk it may be easier for you to be able to have him in the pram when you have the two to worry about at the shops or while walking.

    DS also loves walking but he will bolt if I let him go so we use the stroller. Even if we are in a store (eg yesterday at fantastic furniture) I let him walk around and he runs away. I even did the "ok see ya" and he waved at me and walked the other way :P probably too young for that concept.

    P.s - congratulations??? I am going to text you now!!
