    Default Double pram suggestions !!

    I am in the process if looking for a double pram to suit my 14 month old and newborn, firstly I'm looking at buying second hand!
    I'm at a loss as to wether a front to back or side by side is better!
    I need something that folds up quiet small as only have a small amount of room left in my boot with the Dickie seats up for older kids!
    Anyone got any suggestions on what they found easier front to back or side by side ?
    Thanks

    I have had both styles of prams and prefer the side by side as both kids have an even view and spot in the pram. The city mini double or a double umberella stoller are the 2 that come to mind considering the lack of space in your car. I have fitted larger double prams in the car when using the rear seats but it doesnt leave much room for legs and its not really safe.

    We are waiting for our BJCS to arrive...so while I haven't tried it out myself, I've watched about 1 million videos on YouTube and done my research...it ticks all the boxes for us

    love love LOVE my Mountain buggy Duet (side by side)

    Smallest double pram ever made.

    You're not likely to get one 2nd hand though coz they're only a few months old, but you could get lucky.

    With my first 2 they were 15 moths apart. I loved my p&t's with te toddler seat. No one could touch dd as DS covered her with the seat. By the time she was big enough to sit in the seat she was at te back and the little old ladies couldn't bend that far to touch her.. As they got older they would fight over who sat in the back (had no issues with not seeing etc they loved the back seat)

    Thanks girls,
    I have been looking at the phil and teds, seem to be seeing alot of them selling second hand, it kinda does make me wonder why though. I have read some reviews on them and some thing they are great some not so great!!
    i have been told also that they are very easy tip ?
    I am having a look at a phil and teds side by side tomorrow, but yet to look at one with a toddler seat. I have been thinking that the toddler seat option is probably the way to go as my 14 month old obviously wont be in a pram as long as they newborn and then will have to sell the side by side, where as with a toddler seat i can remove the extra seat.

    The only time I almost tipped mine was getting up a big step and when it was just on the front wheel. It never tipped backwards while the kids where in there.. (or sideways)
