    I have Strider Plus 4 as well. Yes its so heavy lugging it in and out of boot! And wide because of the massive back wheels. But its great cross country when there is no path! Lol or going through massive puddles !

    Thanks so much for all the advice.

    This is first bub and we will be trying for baby number 2 soon after as we want approx 2 year age gap.

    I'll take the strider plus off the list. Now just 3 to decide from.

    I had the strider plus 4 it was heavy hard to fold and unfold and the back wheels are too wide to fit through a normal supermarket checkout. But when going for long walks I loved how smooth it was to push.

    I was tossing up between the compact and the bjcs and ended up going with the compact mainly due to price as the extras came with the compact and not the bjcs. Another thing was how much longer the bjcs felt compared to the compact with the second seatit felt like a limo or train. I do love the options on seats with the bjcs but as my kids have a 2.11month age gap wasn't willing to spend so much when I wasn't sure how long I would be using a pram as a double and at this stage not planning on having anymore kids.
    If money was no option though I would buy the silver cross in a heart beat it's amaZing!! Good luck.

    I have two kids and have the BJCS. Great pram, easy to dissemble, can steer with one hand however since day 1 when out walking in some cases it can get wobbly front wheels like a shopping trolley. I have just received some new replacement wheels from the store I bought it from so have yet to try them out.

    Thanks so much. I'm going to go into a store and try out all the ones you have suggested. :-)

    It's between the BJCS & Compact Now

    DH + Me + DD (born 11/10/12) = our little family :-)
    I also have this and love it :-)
    They are half price at the moment for $249. I agree with the convenience of seat also being a bassinet instead of having to buy separately.
    I love the look of the city select though but too pricey for me

    I have the Strider Compact and love it. It doesn't require extra pieces to change seats, has forward or rear facing option, lots of basket space, the canopy extends to cover the whole seat and it's narrow enough to fit in just about anywhere!

    I have the BJCS and absolutely love it. The quality is great, so many options, easy to steer one handed and a huge basket and it's so easy to keep looking good as the seat is machine washable.

    I've tried 3 of those 4 prams and my favourite has been the Silver Cross Wayfarer. So easy to steer, drive, get in and out of car, looks awesome. Very happy with my pram purchase.
