I'm looking at getting a new pram for DS who is three next month (and is as tall as a lot of four year olds!) but I want something that comes with a bassinet as well as we're 9 months of having a bub .
I've so far looked at the City Jogger, the Bugaboo Frog (I don't really like how low they seem to be though, DH is quite tall) and the Strider Plus. The Strider Plus is out because it seems to be wide which is something I hate about going into shops, being stuck in tight aisles! *chuckle*.
I'll probably buy second hand, there seems to be a lot on ebay at the moment that are in great condition and I don't see the point of spending stacks of money when I can get it much cheaper because it's seen a year or two of use. Some people call it cheap, I call it thrifty lmao.
Anyway, any suggestions for me to research would be great. I'm not fussed about adding a toddler seat, but I'd like something that comes with a toddler skateboard if I can. I also don't want anything too heavy or bulky.
Also, if anyone has a great second hand pram for sale and is on the Western side of Melbourne, I'd be interested in getting some pictures etc .

I would suggest the baby jogger city select. It doesn't come with a bassinette but u can get an adaptor to use a capsule with this pram and a second seat. I used this system when DS2 was smaller and it's wonderful. No waking baby to put in/out of car or in/out of pram/house. Really was perfect. Now that he is older I still use the pram with 2 seats instead of 1 seat and a capsule for both my sons. In saying this I haven't used any other doubles so I don't really have anything to compare it to

Forgot to mention it easily converts back to a single once your older child doesn't want to use the pram anymore. It's very sturdy and easy to use.

Not saying its not suitable for the OP but I tried my 22kg 110cm tall 4 year old in the CS and he was way too big, my 3 year old barely fit but it was an option I did consider until I actually went to try it IRL

Have u seen the iCandy peach?
I chose it after researching, I loved the strider, but its to bulky, heavy and wide. The iCandy is lightweight, has an adjustable handle, and can convert to a double or have a basinet or capsule.
It is on the expensive side tho, so mayb look around for second hand.
