    if we have #2 in time to get a double, we'll be going the peg perego duette
    Ive read a few good reveiws on them but obviously haven't used one myself but i have the peg uno which is like a one seater on the duette and it is great!

    I have the Phil and Teds E3 which is the last model. I love it and have the double kit installed on it now.

    The only bad thing I have heard about it is that the basket at the bottom is not big enough and when baby is lying down the lasket is not easily accesible.

    I would agree to this to an extent (don't really think the size of the basket is an issue though) but I never use the basket. I have the nappy bag which sits over the handle of the pram with all my needed things in that.

    I absolutely love my Phil and Teds Sport. I haven't used it as a double yet, but bought it specifically for that reason. The main thing I love is that it is narrow, so you can still zip down aisles with two. It's true about the basket, but I got some free bags with mine that clip on the sides, I love them. I also hang a bag over the handles.

    I have the P & T Sport and am using it for my 2 under 2.

    While I do love the pram in two toddler mode my bub now hates lying flat in the newborn/toddler mode but is very happy now he is in his own seat with a head support.

    I had to get the pannier bags that attach to the side as the basket is pretty well unusable in newborn mode and bubs feet will be on top of it in this mode.

    Its a dream to steer and is a fantastic walking pram.

    I want the adventure buggy http://www.abcbuggy.co.nz/rec_toddler_seat.html

    Its made by the same people who make P&T and I just think its a fantastic idea. I dont particularly like the p&t prams with the baby seat underneath - I think for a baby like Jasper... goodluck to anyone trying to wrestle him into the back seat, I have enough trouble getting him to just sit still long enough to put the seat belt on him in a normal pram!

    I'm desperately trying to find an adventure buggy on ebay, in sydney, for a reasonable price (as they're about $1,200 new ) I see them in melbourne ALL THE TIME on ebay for around $150-$350 depending on the age and accessories its coming with... but... never in sydney! But I guess thats how it always is.

    For now I have a "mothers own" tandem pram, I paid $160 for it new on sale at Toys'r'us, but I guess what I've learn from buying 3 prams in 7 months is you're better off buying the more expensive higher quality pram and getting 5 -10 full years out of it, than 'saving' money and losing money in the long run... like me

    But I think you need a range of prams depending on your current situation....if this makes sense. I have had a single 3 wheeler suitable for newborn, a double pram, a cheap umbrella stroller, a more expensive stroller with a toddler skateboard. I don't think one single pram would have been suitable for all these needs....and I would be annoyed to spend heaps and have it sitting around!
