I am after people's experiences with the BJCS and the Bugaboo donkey- which do you prefer and why?
I have a BJCS and have LOVED it but I'm lusting over the bugaboo donkey and I'm thinking of jumping ship.
I currently have a 2.75 y/o and an 11 month old. Will be aiming for another baby towards the end of next year so it'll be getting used a lot as a double.
I do love my BJCS but it's a pain to push with the toddler (16kg) at the front and I can't lay the little baby down facing me with the toddler at the front facing out. Which bugs me.

I love my bjcs as I can use it as a single or double. I don't find it hard to steer.

Bjcs vs bugaboo donkey
I didn't think it was possible to love a pram so much as I do the Donkey. I have twins and it's seriously a dream. Can be used for one or two babies, love the side shopping basket, steers like a dream, light weight, gets through all doors and hallways. I could go on and on haha

I jumped ship from the select to the donkey. The real life configurations of the select drive me nuts. Only thing I don't like about the donkey is its a bulky fold.

I adore my donkey! When we go on a long walk or out at the zoo etc, I can chuck on the second seat and mr 4 can ride, otherwise in mono, the side basket is fabulous!

I have the bjcs. At the time I was keen on the donkey. Bjcs won due to the seat being bigger having a larger weight limit.
If I had twins I would go the donkey as it did just glide and is a beautiful pram.
Love love the basket on the bjcs...crazy how much I can fit in it.

Really happy with my donkey. I needed a double for my young toddler and new baby. I only considered a side by side. I really do not like the idea of one child being underneath while we are going for a nice walk. Also I wanted it to easily convert to a single because eventually my toddler will be out of the pram and also once a week my toddler is in care so I only have the bub. So with these things in mind, nothing compared with the donkey. X
