    Default Which pram do I want MB +One or something else?

    OK, im looking for a pram for my son and a newborn, my son will be 20mths when baby arrives. I need BIG wheels as i mainly walk off road, dont like inlines where one has to sit low eg phil and teds but inline is ok as long as the back one can see over the front. would like BIG sunshade too. would be awesome if the bub can face me while toddler faces out. Am currently liking the mountain buggy +One but as we are rural there is no one withing 600km who stocks them to have a play with one. the only thing i can see from the web that concerns me with the +one is what happens between outgrowing the cucoon and being able to sit upright. anyone have this pram? anyone have any other suggestions?

    I'm getting the Bugaboo Donkey Duo. My DS will be 18mths when bub arrives.

    You can have one facing out and bub facing in, a bassinet and toddler seat,theme 2 toddler seats eventually. You can connect a capsule to one side for bub. Then when you only need to take 1 child out, you can remove 1 seat, push the frame together and bingo - back to a mono pram!

    Expensive, but very versatile. Also has big wheels and can. Jane steering etc

    Do you have the +One Maybelline? Have you had any problems with a few months gap between going from the cocoon to to seat?

    I'm in the same boat as you. I've been doing some research, im soooo sad to be losing my mountain buggy swift, it's awesome.
    I've heard really bad things about the mb+1, and I don't understand what happens when the newborn outgrows the cocoon but can't sit upright?
    I like the mb duet. It's a side by side but only as wide as a single. I go for lots of walks and there's no way my inquisitive toddle would sit on one of those small seats!

    have you considered a baby jogger city select? the biggest selling point to me was that the older one gets to sit at the front and see everything.

    The NB can face mum or the front and it takes a capsule/seat/basinett style depending on preference for the NB.

    I second the baby jogger city select, I am pregnant with my second and just purchased one and I can't wait to use it with both babies in it!

    I have heard many people say with the baby jogger city select it gets hard to push when the older child is sitting at the front, therefore the pram is hard to steer with the weight. I checked it out and im not a fan of the pram... it seems heavy as well.

    i love the different layouts of the BJCS but the wheels arent big enough, my current pram has 8" front wheels (same as CS) and gets bogged where i walk and thats just with 1 kid. have heard the CS can get quite unstable with 2 seats as well, probably fine around shops and footpaths but not for what I need. I walk on a 4WD track. Im also sort of considering the MB duo. and love the bumbleride indie twin, but unfortunately they dont have stockists in aus so you have to order from the states. they have some wicked colours though.
