Double pram recommendations from mums with experience.
As I'm pregnant with my second baby, I am starting to look into double prams. But similar to when I was buying my first pram, I am lost in the minefield of how many options there are. Trying to work out what is right for me and my family is so difficult!
So I turned to the brain trust, otherwise known as other Mums. I asked them what double pram they use and for their best recommendations. But as well as double pram recommendations, the same advice kept flooding in. Here are some factors to consider before reading up on double prams:
Do you really need one? Will your baby be happy in a sling or to be worn while your toddler uses the pram? Could you add a toddler skateboard instead?
Does your current pram have the ability to have a second seat or attachments put on it?
Check the weight limit of the pram you are considering to buy. Some are very restrictive so if you have a big toddler, the two may put them over the weight limit.
Can you purchase second hand? Facebook Market Place and Gumtree are full of people selling second hand prams in great condition. Even if its not your first choice, you may pick up a bargain!
I have now considered all of the above and made my choice. I hope that this helps you make yours! Here is a list of double prams that were recommended over and over again by other Mums and their real life experiences
The Bugaboo Donkey is a single pram that expands into a double pram with attachments. It is a side by side double pram. Bugaboo also make a Bugaboo Donkey Twin which is a side by side double pram that doesn't have to be converted.
This side by side double pram is more compact than many other double prams on the market and the basket is supposed to be really spacious for holding everything extra that comes with having another baby.
The Valco Snap Duo is a lightweight side by side double pram. I currently have the single pram and love it because of it's ease of steering, big basket and ability to manouvere the seats forward or rear facing. The reviews are that the double is just as good as the single. It is also a more affordable option.
Approximate Retail Cost: Starting from $600
