    Default 25 month age gap - did you have a double pram

    I am in two minds as I have a 2.5year old and a 6 month old.
    I have a Phil & Ted which I absolutely do not like as I feel it's uncomfortable for the newbie and am looking at the side by side baby joggers and unsure if the mini or classic is better.
    Or do I just rough it out with the Phil and Ted or sell it and invest in side by side.
    Would love to hear what other parents had with this age GAO in doubles

    Personally I wouldn't get a side by side for that age gap as your 2.5 year old will want to walk at times and I find side by sides are unco to push if you've only got the weight of one child in there seat. I'd stick to your Phil and teds.

    I had my kids 2.5 years and 2.3 years apart and was lucky to use my tandem pram twice. Is suggest a pram with a detachable toddler seat or a board.

    My kids are 27 months apart, I got a baby jogger city mini double.

    My ds is now 3 and I am glad I invested in the double - he's still happy to sit in the pram and it's great for the shops when I need them both restrained!

    It's a great pram, light for a double, easy fold, fits through a standard doorway, and is super easy to maneuver. Basket is hard to access, but I can live with that.

    Also if my ds wants to get out it's easy to push with just one in there and doesn't feel lopsided.
