    Default side by side or tandem pram?

    Im due in October and ds will be 2. Ds is always throwing tantrums atm and is very strong willed. Which pram set up would be better? One of my concerns is ds hitting/kicking the baby.

    I have a mountain buggy side by side and the kids can hold hands but in terms of one child actually attacking the other (not that mine have ever tried it) it would actually be a bit difficult as the seats are positioned slightly back (if that makes sense).

    Which pram is best depends entirely on how much walking you do and where you do it. I don't personally like tandem prams so it was never an option for us. I love my mountain buggy duo but I know some people find them too big.

    I have the same concern, I bought the steelcraft strider plus before having DD and I've now just bought the toddler chair and the capsule.

    So when going for walks DD 2.5 will sit in her usual seat and bub will sit below her.

    Then if we go out in the car DD won't be in the pram, bub will be in the capsule, up the top.

    I'd recommend getting the strider compact as the strider plus is old and the compact has the option of putting the capsule underneath and toddler up the top (which isn't an option with the plus.)
