    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.
    This is pretty much my plan - glad to hear it works!! I will probably wait til I have the baby and see how I go for a while, I can always buy another pram later I guess

    I too am planning on doing this and am happy to hear it works. DS will be 27 months old when baby arrives. I love my MB Swift and don't want to trade it for a double pram. It fits everywhere and is so easy to manoeuvre. Thinking of buying either an Ergo or Manduca and getting the little skateboard that has a seat on it too for when baby needs to go in the pram. I've been letting DS walk alongside the pram for a while now and he's pretty good but he is still a runner. My only dilemma is this set up is not going to allow me to put the MB bassinet or car capsule on and I used those so much for DS in the early days!

    I had the bugaboo too when Ds1 was 2.5 yrs and Ds2 was born. I tried the skateboard but hated it as I had to stand to the side. I used the sling, but more after he was 6m.
    I bought a $200 umbrella double (in front of each other) stroller and it was the best thing ever! Slim enough to get through the shops (only quick shops, I used the double trolleys for big shops) and awesome for trips to the local park.
    It wasn't the best pram, but earlier on I did buy/sell a double pram and compared to the bugaboo, it was huge!


    (I can't remember the brand of the umbrella double, but the front had a bucket seat and the back reclined from lying to sitting up for new borns onwards.

    Honestly, I'd wait and see how you go. I managed even while recovering from a c-section. Like you said, you can always buy one.
