    Default Choosing a double pram, help me!

    Bubba #2 in on the way, and DD will be 18 months old when he/she will be born.
    I was going to 'wait and see' but every mum I spoke to said I will need a double pram. Currently I have a bugaboo bee and I love it.
    Ive been trying to do some research but its all so confusing! and there doesn't seem to be much out there.
    The ones that have caught my attention are:
    bugaboo donkey I don't like how its side by side as I imagine it would be difficult to manoeuvre around the shops.
    orbit helix I like the many options (thinking if one kid starts kicking or what not!) however it feels squishy and doesn't look comfortable for mum to push... and where would I hook my bag if the bottom seat is right under the handle!
    Icandy peach looks a lot like the orbit except even more squishy!

    ANyone have any other suggestions?

    Yes me too. I've only had it a short time but absolutely LOVE it especially using the car seat adaptor and capsule.

    i think city select is over rated. when the older child gets heavier it gets harder to steer. i would go with a strider compact.

    We have a mountain buggy double. I would always select a side by side over one where one child sits behind the other. I hate how claustrophobic they look. I like my kids sitting beside each other. I've had it for nearly 5 years and it's going great. It gets used a lot.

    When we were at markets yesterday I saw a veebee twin pram. Very compact ! Not sure the model. See if I can find it . Look at strider compact. My pram is the agile plus and it comes in a twin as well. By far easiest pram I've used . Light weight easy to put up and down capsule option. Go see the ladies at pram warehouse on underwood rd opposite bunnings/big w

    I feel the same!

    i have the donkey. Sometimes I get stuck in shops but it turns so easily its not hard to get out.

    I also have the skateboard, so if its a short trip I can put it into single mode and dd1 goes on the skateboard.

    love my donkey!

    I got the donkey also well it's still on laybuy as we plan on having two kids, I like the fact they cam sit next to each other. Baby one isn't due to October but I do want the second close In age.

    I have a p&t sport and adore it. But my next pram will be a strider for the shops and a new p&t explorer for walks etc.

    Are you looking for a pram compatible with a car capsule?
