My Double Buggy Disaster

Let me tell you my double buggy story.

I remember when Frankie was about 3 and Lise just born and I decided it would be really helpful to have a double buggy for when we were going long distances. because I thought i would only use it occasionally as Frankie was now walking I decided to go down a really thrifty route. I bought this big hulking double buggy  that look v worn for 25 from an NCT sale. Oh my goodness quite what was I thinking. Probably what a bargain I was getting!

This was a double buggy disaster, I tried to get it in a shop door on one occasion and nearly got wedged in I was so embarrassed. The kids did not seem very comfortable and storing it in our small home was a problem,  I even (rather stupidly) got in a lift with it once. A tight squeeze indeed Frankie seemed to want to go in the buggy more than he had in months once Lise was born  which was probably a little sign of jealousy and wanting to be my baby again. Needless to say I used that horrible buggy far more than I expected.

That bargain buggy made us a bit miserable and wasn’t a very good bargain after all.

Oh the double buggies that are around at the moment are just lovely. Let me show you some of the ones I would pick if I had the chance now!

How fun is that and doesn’t it look super cosy !

or how about the Out and About, so lightweight  it only weighs 11k and it folds so compactly

out and about

But just for the sheer cuteness factor this one is my favourite and how fabulous my two would have looked in this.

This Cosatto Supa Dupa Twin Stroller is just fabulous!


sis bro

Maybe I need some more babies!

Have you ever had a double buggy?

    thankfully Ive never had to battle with a double buggy but as my little man has Autism he’s still in a buggy at there 1/2 and will be for a while yet. We tried the little umbrella stroller but he hated it so we’re stuck with a big, bulky thing! At least I can fit through doors even if I can’t quite make it around some shops!

    I like the look of the Bugaboo Donkey but I think the OutnAbout may be more practical for us.
