Double Buggies: Baby and Toddler
I am looking around at double buggies because we are expecting in June and will have a toddler aged 2yrs and 9 months.
I initially thought we would get away without a double buggy and go for a buggy board but talking to friends has got me thinking. I think the board would be fine for short trips out or when hubby is around but realistically I am going to need to get out and about on my own with both kids and even walking through shops with breakables or going for longer treks is going to be an issue if DS has nowhere to rest.
So...I am weighing up second hand vs. new and also a bit unsure I want to lay out so much for a brand new system all over again. We could sell our Quinny Buzz and all the gear to raise something toward a new buggy but I want to figure out if it is worth it.
I've looked at the Phil and Ted styles which seem practical as they are fairly narrow but look comfy and a lot of them can be used as a tandem or single which would be great when DS is at nursery so I don't have to lug about a full double buggy.
Has anyone used the Phil and Ted buggies? What did you think? Did you find you definitely needed a double with two kids?
