Double Prams that Mums Recommend

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

1. Bugaboo Donkey

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.

Approximate Retail Cost: $2500

2. Baby Jogger City Mini or City Select

These two prams are very affordable, come highly recommended and brag about being the easiest on the market to put up and down with ease.

The City Mini GT and City Mini Double are both side by side prams. The City Select has the capacity to add an extra seat and attachments in different configurations.

Approximate Retail Cost: Starting from $700

3. ICandy Orange

The ICandy Orange range has two double prams in their range where you can turn a single pram into a double pram with added seat and attachments.

Approximate Retail Cost: Starting from $1500

4. Mountain Buggy Duet

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.

Approximate Retail Cost: Starting from $1099

5. Steelcraft Strider Compact

Another single pram that can be converted into a double pram with added seats or attachments, it is another more affordable option for a double pram.

Approximate Retail Cost: Starting from $600

6. Valco Snap Duo

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

Do you have a double pram that you think should have made the list? Please let us know in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!
