    Default Do I need a double pram?

    DS is 20 months and I am 19 weeks pregnant with my 2nd
    DS will pretty much be exactly two by the time the baby arrives.

    I have a bugaboo bee at the moment, which I love, but now I'm concerned I may need a double pram for my two tiny tots! I was planning on wearing the baby on short trips, and buying a skateboard for my two year old for longer trips but I have no idea what to do!

    Can you please tell me about your experiences with two kiddies and possibly recommend me a great double pram?? Thanks in advance

    My ds was 23 months when dd arrived, I walk the dogs and kids every day so I chose the donkey for my walking pram or big day trips. Then had the bee + ergo in the car for quick trips and eventually the bee with skateboard when dd was in the seat.

    I have the bee and donkey!!! My age gap will be smaller but I love the donkey as I can make it single or double. Plus its fantastic to steer.

    Then for short trips as you suggested I will use the bee. But I dont drive so will just more than likely be donkey unless df has one bub on his own or vice versa.

    Cant beat a bugaboo!!!!! This is my fourth pram

    I don't really think my hubby is gonna let me buy a donkey as my bee is fairly new, I sold my cameleon to buy it so pretty sure he would die if I even suggested that we buy another one lol

    26mths between my youngest 2 & i brought a strider compact with 2nd seat.

    I have had both of them in it at least 6 times a week since march so i reckon thats pretty useful

    24 months and 2 weeks between my two. I've never had a double. For the first few months DS2 was in a wrap or an ergo. Then he was in the pram and DS2 walked (which he'd done for the most part since before DS2 was born anyway - I had encouraged it because I didn't want a double pram). I then took the ergo out with me so if DS1 genuinely was tired and couldn't walk, I'd put one of them in the ergo and one I the pram. Honestly, unless I was walking for more than a couple of hours, it was never a problem. There was a handful of times I had to carry one and push the pram with the other. I haven't done it since DS2 was about 9 months old (he's now 17 months).

    I'm lucky in that DS1 isn't a runner, prefers to walk, likes holding onto or pushing the pram and is fairly sensible in carparks and near roads.
